Thanks! I really enjoy author sites-so far I've read through Holly Lisle's, Alicia Rasley's and "Hal Spacejock"s sites. I've found tons of great info on them.

Yes, I will second that. Jim Butcher has some terrific writing advice that you can actually use.

None of that vague stuff that fills up so many writing books. I became a fan of The Dresden Files by reading his writing advice.

and saw just how much there was, I thought "WOW" that's a lot of reading. The next thing I know I had read the whole thing and was ready to sit down and do some serious outlining. Reading his post is like listening to Harry himself talk, you can tell his closeness to his character.
