    Probably wrong board but lets discuss the awesomeness of this all the same.

    This post in particular, but pretty much everything on the blog.

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

    What a wonderful site! I am sitting on my hands, trying to resist the urge to impulse-buy the book.

    Wow...thanks for sharing that! It's such a simple yet complex truth that all writers should hear.

    Doubtless the story was bad. But this is just typical Fitzgerald disagreeableness and B.S. Plus some generic platitudes that don't really say how to do anything.

    The "PS" was the best part. In other words, "You seem to have what it takes to be a writer—now get to work."

    Would have been neat to have some real advice from him. I mean he took the time to reply which is cool; although he was a friend of the family. He never really told her what needed work though; matter of fact he said the work flowed well. I dare ask what else really matters? If your flow is well, then your story fits, and if your story fits then the work was well done, and if well done is your work then seems like a good system to me.

    It's Fitzgerald -- great writers have the ability to skillfully weave banalities into things that seem rather profound.
