You know one of the reasons I love Fridays? Because I get to save all these links for lunchtime reading! Thanks!

Nice set of links. I particularly liked the one on curing the invisible writer, just because I liked the image of someone invisible becoming more visible. It's funny how we can remain hidden in plain sight. I kind of like that idea--just the idea of it; I know it's not good from a publicity point of view!

I liked the one about lies. An interesting way to look at characters...

I liked that one too. I never realized that all my characters (the ones I can think of) have at least one lie they tell themselves, and that this lie is inherent to their character. Very cool.

My pleasure. By the way, I'm still not getting most comments forwarded :(

That's pretty crazy. Have you contacted LJ at all?

Yeah, they say it's my service provider, Optonline. I can't get through to speak to anyone there, and the hi-tech 'chat with a tech support online' gizmo won't load properly, so I'm stuck for now.

It's frustrating because, while I can check my messages to see who's commented on my journal, I've no way of telling if I've missed someone's reply to a comment I left on his/her blog, which seems to happen about 50% of the time :(

"why people hate you" was a good link, I thought

As all ways you done good kid! Great links. I was drawn to the rejection and people will hate you post first. Not sure what that is about. . . I recovered and visited the lying and visibility posts. All very good.

I hope this constant finding good links and receiving praise does not give you a big ego . . . :)

Lol, finding good posts is a darn sight easier than writing them :)

As for the ego thing, rest assured, I'm still the most modest man the world has ever known ;)

I figured you were humble, given all the self-deprecating remarks. But the statement, 'most modest man the world has ever known, ' gives me pause. Hmmmm? ;-)

I can't believe I made your list, Jon. It was one of my secret goals. Yip!
