Thanks, Mari. I'll tell ya, I never learned more about the writing craft than when I started up the webzine and was forced to deal with upwards of 40 short stories a month. I felt that I learned more from the crap than I ever did from the classics. From the Greats, all I could do was try to emulate - at the expense of my own voice. Reading the crap, I recognized my own faults and learned to dodge them (well...most of the time).
Snow is pretty, but it sure gets in the way! Glad you enjoyed it when you were visiting. Oops, they're mentioning a chance of snow around Thanksgiving. Glad I don't have far to go for my turkey dinner.
