Diana Peterfreund's talking about Heroic Archetypes (of Narnia). Go hassle her. ;)
Tess Gerritsen posted about how difficult it is for a writer to stop writing even when they've been looking forward to a break. I was nodding most of the way through this post. I turn into a completely lost soul after finishing a book.
