There are some terrific posts in this set! I especially liked the word choice one, the manners one, and the revision one, and I'll definitely be commenting on the authors' journals to say so.

I found "How to Craft a Great Voice" fascinating.

Nathan Bransford's blog is consistently informative and entertaining. It's no wonder he gets a million visitors a year.

Great selection, as always. I didn't save them for lunch today because...because I'm boogering around on the internet when I should be upstairs writing. :)

Thanks for the headsup, Terri. I hadn't realized it was friends-locked, but I'm on the case :)

It's open now. :) I didn't realize he was going to link to the entry instead of the actual board itself. XD

You're welcome! Let me know if you have any questions about it. I've found that I have to make some changes to some of the things I initially started off with (i.e. having applications), but that's about it. Things are kind of slow at the moment but I hope it'll get better soon.

Great, as always. Thoughts on Revising probably resonated the most because I lost my way a bit this week.

Ripley's post is excellent. I've wanted to think that the good will overcome the bad but she opened my eyes. I must be getting old because accepting change has gotten a little more difficult for me.

I think you could drive yourself crazy if you let stuff like this bother you.

I have a suggestion:
Maggie Stiefvater's post on time management for creative types:
http://m-stiefvater.livejournal.com/159357.html

Maggie is an NYT best selling YA author.

erm... I just noticed you in the comments of that entry, so I guess you already knew about it!

Yeah, she made the post on Sunday, so it'll be on this week's list, but thanks for the suggestion though. I'd rather hear about something I already knew than miss out on a great post like that one :)
