Writing Links Wednesday

Kimi posted her notes from DragonCon. Hop on over and have a gander at all the happenings. Kimi also passed on some LKH gossip: “In her panel interview at DragonCon Laurel K. Hamilton admits to putting important plot points in her sex scenes now since many complain about the sex in her books and say they skip over them.” I wonder if we’ll be able to skip over whole books without losing too much. I’m also wondering if these “important plot points” will stick out like a sore, um, thumb. Yeah.
