    Happy Uncle-Jim-Thread Anniversary! Come celebrate with Us!

    Six years ago today, Jim Macdonald wrote:
    It strikes me that there's a need for a thread on the art and craft of writing commercial novels.

    To that end, I'd like to start that discussion...
    A few weeks after that, I followed a link from elsewhere on the web to Absolute Write, because a writer and editor I respected was heartily endorsing the Uncle Jim thread, as we've come to call it, over the years. I've been here, since.

    Learn Writing With Uncle Jim is now six years old, hundreds of pages long, and in its second incarnation. We've done an index and a compilation. And still, new people are finding the thread and asking their questions.

    Happy Anniversary, Uncle Jim, and thank you so very much for your tireless efforts to offer succor and aid to newbie writers everywhere. I can't imagine how different this place would be without you.
