Oh, and since it is now official Congratulations to The Top 15!!!
A comment that I've seen repeated recently is just how difficult it is at times to get a discussion started on writing.
The ones that do get started tend to devolve quickly into how so and so sucks, how no one wants constructive criticism and/or where is the pie, and how can I can some?
Who are your favorite writers and what do you think other people can learn from them?
It's a general, open ended question. But I figure if you are going to get the ball rolling it should be down as wide of a path as possible!*g* I also always think it's intriguing to see the differences of one person's ideas of "good writing" and someone else's. Because taste tends to be a very subjective thing. Where we differ is as fun to see as where different people are going to come together and agree.
Oh, and because I forgot to say this earlier - something everyone can agree on:
Happy Birthday to worldofcharlie and canadian_diva!
