Thanks, waylander - I just read an article from Gaelen Foley's blog under Writing, that says pretty much what you just said (along with some other good advice for those of us starting out). Link: http://networkedblogs.com/EyIGO

I think I will finish my outline for my next Sparta novel.

Hi Siri Kirpal - Thank you. And I hope you decide on something soon. I get antsy when I'm not writing, so this has not been fun for me.
