It’s the end of my birthday week. I experienced a lot of joys this week and felt a lot of love, which is simply a lot o fun. This week also brought on a ton of great links to remember…
James Scott Bell provided My Aha! Moment over at The Kill Zone

Are you genuinely nice on twitter? I’d like to think I am. Two posts came up this week from two great gals and between the two they make some great points that are easy to agree with, if you are genuinely nice. First up is Roni Loren’s Enough With the Quid Pro Quo Blogging Etiquette – Free Yourself. Second up is Kristen Lamb’s T.E.A.M–Together Everyone Achieves More, #MyWANA sounds like a nice place to hang out.
I knew I loved Finding Nemo and now I really know why, let Kristen Lamb explain: What “Finding Nemo” Can Teach Us About Story Action
Janice Hardy, The Other Side of the Story, provided on Thursday tips for small problems to think about for your plot: That’s So Annoying: Adding Small Problems to Your Plot. Janice posted What’s at Stake? How Do You Make Readers Care About Your Story? yesterday, on my birthday. Thank you Janice for two great posts this week.
