An excellent post on a biggie, Writer’s block. A big thanks to DBCII for the insight and the great post!
Just for a chuckle, check out this post or this one by Infintefreetime. Interesting, short and funny or unpredictable, his posts are something I never miss. I think the variety is part of the appeal but I think there’s some wizard magic in there too–and possibly a unicorn or two. An interesting aside, the author of Infinitefreetime has written a book titled “The Benevolence Archives: Volume One” and is coming soon. If it’s anything like his blog, it’s sure to be an instant hit. Check out more information here.

Agree or disagree, Victoria Grefer wrote an excellent post on why you shouldn’t edit while you write. I certainly believe I shouldn’t do it while I write…it’s just so tempting!
