Loved that graph in particular.

I really liked my friend writerjenn's post about synopses.

Great post.

I had to tinker with the link (http://writerjenn.livejournal.com/122596.html), but it was well worth the trouble.

Thanks for sharing :)

Very useful. Especially for me because even after all this time I have not got the slightest idea how to write a synopsis or query.

Yeah, they're a different animal, needing different skills, that's for sure :)

Oh that title piece. I'm terrible at titles. Thanks for posting. I can't get lazy just because I don't like writing them. :)

Now ... onto reading about queries ...

I really think good title's are important, especially for novels - as I'll cover in my post on that very subject tomorrow;)

Thanks for sharing :)
