@Tom - mistakes are the surest paths to learning. My goal is to make new ones, not to repeat the same ones. Studying those who do it well helps with framing. Practicing helps with getting a feel for using stories.

@Tim - I deduct you're a fan ;)

@Debra - you do know what you need to do next, and that's really important. These are such early days with social and conversations that once you find your direction, you can really do a lot with it. Looking forward to your progress.

Interesting post. I feel like the small fish in a big pond and have no signal at all. However, I have not really pinpointed a niche, genre or idea, thus no signal. I am now seriously hammering those issues out. Thanks for the recommendations.

Story is a superb book, and essential reading for any serious writer, regardless of the type of writing that you are doing. I second your recommendation!
