And speaking of terrific articles about writing...

...this one ought to be required reading. I only heard about it last week, and wish I'd read it years ago!

You need to read the Publishing FAQs, especially this one.

You'll discover that Slushkiller is linked to all the time on AW; a quick check shows it's been linked to more than twenty times.

I did see it linked to in the "rejection gripe" forum. It seemed to me that if you're already griping about your rejections, you didn't read this article early enough.

Sorry to trouble you by posting this here. Shall I remove this link, or ask a moderator to do so if deleting posts can't be done by original posters?
