I second the Dvorak comment.

comment Where and how to look for a picture for illustration?
On #3 I would say it's closer to Some then Most. You may find the nice picture from the talented amateurs, but in my experience many semi-pros will probably want a decent price. Pros certainly will.

I would ask if you work at my company, but that sounds like every software company I've worked at ;)

comment Tools for generating characters' names
Seventh Sanctum has quiet a few generators (some serious, some not), and it's my personal website of choice if I need something quickly. They provide a good quick framework I can flesh out.

comment How do you track random thoughts and ideas?
@JFW - I'm just using the black hard cover notebook with lined paper. As for my pen, it's a simple ball point, in fact it's a fairly cheep one so I can pop off the little pocket clip thing. Gets in the way otherwise.

comment How do I recover my confidence after a harsh writing group?
I've found that NaNoWriMo is a great way to just try to get something done. While you can do it outside of November (which I've done) I've found having the knowledge that 100,000 other people are crazy enough to try it at the same time is a great motivator.

comment When should modifiers be avoided?
Frankly, I still have problems with this one, sometimes it's hard to convey those feelings in just the dialog or actions.
