Ha!

I thought that Jim's "Bite me!" post would make it on your list. The booksigning one was great too.

Now I have to find the time to read the others; strange how when you're actually off work you have less time to spend in front of the computer.

Yeah, I wanted to add something about Jim's 'Bite me' post, but it all went horribly wrong.

I replied to a comment you made to Terri on my blog. I failed to read the full caption on the LJ email. Terri got it. I have a lazy eye sometimes. ;)

I liked A.R. and as all ways Peadarog . . .The red pencil. Excellent. I am a two spacer. I never thought to do a find and replace for such things. Duh! The booksigning one. But shucks, you always post helpful blogs. That's the point. ;)

Thanks as always! I've experienced the "wrong cliche" scenario myself. Ambiguity is my specialty, which is why having readers NOT like me is so very helpful :)

'...which is why having readers NOT like me is so very helpful'

That's so true, although we definitely need those who read your chosen genre too.

Thanks for sharing :)
