I loved Gabriela's. What an interesting perspective on a tired old cliche! Thanks as always for the links.

It's one of those great pieces of advice which some people misinterpret as a commandment :)

"It's Taxing" is such a FANTASTIC article! i'm gonnna have to reference it and make sure i'm asking what "taxes" my protags are "paying" to get through it all - i actually hadn't ever thought of it that way - but i LOVE it! thank you! =D

i also really liked Larry's addition to the lineup this week

thank you for linking Carolyn this week - i liked her article, but her link to her book on the use of psychology in writing is the most valuable bit to me - i have a book in the works with a character who gets committed to an asylum - there's a chance that'll have to change after giving her book a thorough read

(yay for stream-of-consciousness commenting! =P)
