Paul Dorset wrote a nice 9-part series on why Scrivener is his writing tool of choice.
A bit of advice to writers
Write into Print is running an interesting "Self editing 4 fiction" series. Four have been published including: the Intro, Show AND Tell, Characterization and exposition, and Point of View.
I've also been tagging along with Chris Fries on the multi-part Quest for "Story" which--thus far--includes: Strength of Character, Forging the Chains, Whisper, Growl or Bark?, In the Beginning, and A Con Artist.
A comprehensive (3,000+) Mythical Creatures List
In other news, I've updated my progress bar for The Bonding. I've been Marianas Trench deep into revisions for the past couple weeks. (Hence the lack of posts.) I've killed my darlings by the thousands! Please forgive my hyperbole, but I've cut word count by almost 20,000, eliminated and combined characters, condensed the plot and performed liposuction on my prose. There may be hope for this manuscript yet!
