Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

As I mentioned earlier, my poem is up on Orson Scott Card's website.  Well, my daughter tweeted about it today, and she is a well connected young lady with thousands of followers, so I was amused, but not surprised to see hits like these showing up on Nedstat...  Thanks, Princess!

For those few readers who care about my writing exploits, my poem, Whither Gods, Distracted? is listed on the front page on the right at Orson Scott Card's poetry magazine, Strong Verse. Woohoo!

For those of my readers who are writers, or interested in how writers think, these lists written by various authors are worth reading. I saw the links on Neil Gaiman's site:

Ten rules for writing fiction, Part 1
Ten rules for writing fiction, Part 2

For those who delve deep into character sets, and those who want to test against a fairly comprehensive set of characters, Rich Schwartz has created the "All Unicode Characters DB" and made it available via OpenNTF.  Rather than point you straight at the download, I am pointing at the blog post Rich wrote about the database, as it has important caveats and explanations.  Mostly, I just wanted to express my gratitude for the resource to Richard.
