comment What are the benefits of being a slush reader?
Maybe you've not been paying attention. A lot of places use them, though it's much more common in television. It's so bad in writing for TV that when you write on spec, your spec script for say, the Simpsons, will never even go to the producers of the Simpsons even with a waiver but instead will go to the producers of Family Guy, who may then ask you to write a Family Guy script if you did a good job with the Simpsons script.

If it's fan fiction, it'll never be original.

comment Techniques for writing internal monologue
+1 for the "don't use italics" -- it really is a lazy way of writing. I think most "thinker attributions" are needless, too.

I'm really liking Celtx simply because it's free on the Mac. Very similar to Scrivener.
