Hey R.J.,

How is that movie? I always weight it in my hand, but never end up renting it.

I've never actually seen the movie. I just happen to like the quote.

Stephen -
It's actually very good. And RJ, my favorite quote from the movie:

'Women will sleep with you if you write a book?'
'Women will sleep with you even if you write a bad book.'"

RJ,
I like the rewriting with your head line. I just took out 187 he said(s) from my first readers draft. :)

I finally launched my blog. Spent yesterday being overwhelmed by the warm response. Don't know why I was ever worried...
