Re: Writing. What's your favorite part? Your Hardest Lesson?

Re: Ask Nathan

Re: Future of publishing?

I don't know about scam, but I also don't know if it's necessarily the future either. My impression of Authonomy is that it's cool if you want feedback and/or if you don't take it too seriously, but it also strikes me as thoroughly Machiavellian, and whatever rises to the top in Authonomy through re...

I have to ask. Where and how did this monkey fetish start?

p.s. - if you click on the 'forums' link while already on forums (although why you would do this I don't know) you get a 404 error instead of the forums homepage thingy.
