Might strike some the wrong way, but for me this was a timely post from David Farland's "Daily Kick in the Pants" about not getting mired in the past: Get over It!
If you haven't heard about the LendInk scandal, here's a few links to stories about it. It emphasizes the value of getting your facts straight before lighting the torches and brandishing the pitchforks:
A good article from edittorrent about show-not-tell: Make it happen IN the scene.
A good article on James J. Murray's blog, Prescription For Murder, about developing the protagonist: The Making of a Hero in a Murder Mystery.
And, finally, a post from Kristen Lamb's blog: More than Magic & Gadgets–Taking Science Fiction and Fantasy to Another Level
As I said, a "kitchen sink" blog today. LOL
