Sheesh, I don't check a blog for a week or so, and I miss something big. Over at the stellar Flogging the Quill, Ray has what he terms "a modest proposal" but is really a killer deal: an online storytelling workshop. Folks, if you have a WIP you'd like honest feedback on .... and I'm talking about honest feedback unencumbered by friendships, blood ties, tit-for-tats, critique group political b.s. . . . . here's your opportunity.

Eric shows us a nifty way of organizing your story before you start writing . . . . this disturbs me so much I can't even begin to explain . . . . Bookdwarf wades into the bitchslap war going on in the chick-lit genre, as does Paperback Writer . . . .
More after the jump.
Melly's coming home, yay! . . . . the Writer Beware ladies are back from vacation and post some victories in the fight against publishing scammers . . . . . Nienke. Where does she find these games? Another 20 minutes lost . . . . terrorism has some side benefits for authors . . . . just what Nora Roberts needs, more publicity . . . . . Is horror dead? Crawford Kilian answers .
At the risk of sounding overly precious, TTFN. Write on.
