"Ok, thanks, Linda. I downloaded the 2014 edition from Writer's Digest for $12 so not too much out of pocket. I did not see Zharmae listed in it, tho.
Hope your Thanksgiving holiday was a good one. I think we two are the only users on…"
"Others may want to weigh in on this (cliche) - primarily this is a book with lots of detail in one place. If one is at the point of looking for publisher info for possible places to send query letters, etc., this is a good place to go for an…"
Hey folks (and mostly Linda :),I was just wondering if the writer's market from Writer's Digest is worth buying? With so many sources of information, like the writer's group at Auntie's and the internet, why would I or should I buy a hard copy?Anybody have any thoughts on this? Thanks.SullySee More

"Well, part of the problem is usage. If you were to say, for instance, "I don't like being accosted by someone of Rhoda's ilk," you will be using the term in a grammatically acceptable way, although readers may or may not…"
"P.S. It is very dangerous to use more than one perspective and only writers with the skill to be inventive with structure are advised to try it. You might look through "unique" fiction books to see what is being done along this line. LB"
"Howdy again... This came up recently in the 6-week course taught by local author Frank Scalise. We discussed the different forms of perspective and ways to overcome limitations. If it will be important to be inside the head of the protagonist, it is…"
"Hi Linda, and thanks for your comments.

"Howdy! Well, ilk is usually used after something like "of his... or of her... or of that..." Your phrase would translate as "summons from kind like Rhoda" or "summons from sort like Rhoda" or "summons from…"
Right howdy, folks...Our meeting will be Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. to about 8 (y'all can stay later if'n you're of a mind to, but I'm out of there - I will go home to celebrate my anniversary).This is a reading session, so come prepared to read if you want - from a current piece of work, no repeated text (something you've read before), and first-signed-in, first-to-read as usual. Plan on about 5-6 minutes plus comment time for each reader.See you Wednesday!!!LindaSee More
