Whenever I get a flash of inspiration for a book, it's so darn tempting to take that good idea straight to the outline stage. I have to force myself to hold back, and treat it as the lowest hanging fruit on that particular imagination tree.

I find there's always something even better in the higher branches.

The summer is coming to the end and so is my vacation... Work, work and work! (that is the thing I am going to do) :))

Thank you very much for such useful and interesting links.

Really liked the one about what to put on the back cover of your book. That's something I've been wondering about for some time now.
