    1. Thanks! I don’t know if it’s worth sharing at Big Tent or not — doesn’t seem substantial enough for a “sideshow barker” post. But you’re welcome to it if you’re deperate for content.

      1. Not desperate, but it is a good one. (Ref renkat. :-) )

  1. I think it is Big Tent substance! It could generate a lot of discussion. Is should have come immediately after my ars poetica 1st installment. People would have applauded so loudly you would hear it on your mountain top :-)

    1. You think? I actually kind of miss the more in-depth B.S. I used to sling. I seem to have gotten it all out of my system back in 2005 sometime.

  2. Okay – it is almost midnight here and I have been at a writing workshop all evening. . . Corrections: loudly and you would *hear* it. Fingers always faster than the spell check in my head.

    1. Corrections made. I used to have a nifty plugin that allowed people to edit their own comments for a limited time after posting, but it was one I had to cut out when the site got too slow from too much javascript and too many things trying to load at once. Pity to lose that functionality, though.

      1. Yes, it should have followed Ren’s piece. :-) And I miss that plug-in, but … would rather have your site stable.
