I feel like I have five pairs of eyes, and all of them are wide open after reading this.

I'll second that sentiment. Very informative article, and very inspiring.

What about stories selected by Dave? After all, he is who must be impressed, yes?

So here's a list of where to find free and coin of the realm stories to further your research, to support your fellow writers, and to simply enjoy. wotf010 wotf009

If the above post once contained a spammy link, apparently one of the mods has seen it already and gobbled it up. So Gator, you're too late!

Uh? What?

Nothing. Go back to sleep.

Apologies! The Brain is all at Superstars Writing Seminar this week, and we've been immersed in intensive learning and networking every day. I just saw this. And for some reason I can't get to the admin site via my mobile internet. I'll check with Kary and Tina, but we're all traveling home tomorrow. (Much sadness all around... But on the plus side, we met a number of forum members!) So this spammer may get to live a while longer.

UPDATE: I couldn't get to the admin site, but I could delete the post via the thread page. Bye-bye, spammer!
