What's Stan Lee's problem? They already have that category. Dame Judy Dench won it for Shakespeare in Love several years ago. ;)

Ah, good to see my friend Alyce's article linked. Can't recommend her journal and Wild Violet, her on-line magazine, enough.

Ha, love the Stan Lee vid!
A couple of good writing related articles have caught my eye lately.
http://gravesidetales.com/1103/welcome-to-the-zoo/
http://markcnewton.com/2010/03/12/interview-with-my-editor/
Both of them have some good tips on how to win an editor.
And everyone should be reading the fabulous fabulist Graham Joyce's "Writing a novel in 40 Days" blogposts

I'm glad you liked it so much! I seriously watch it at least once a day. If you listen hard, there's all sorts of funny stuff going on in the background too.

I think I'll go watch it again!

Thanks for another Friday of great lunchtime reads!
