    Welcome back, dear teachers. I look forward very much to listening while I walk my pouch this afternoon I’ve gone through all the first 12 too quickly. I’m looking forward to buying the Storyometer when it comes to the Kindle Fire. Speak on.

    Fascinating cast, I look forward to the breakdown on Third Person. If I may be so bold, I would also love to hear future casts on the topic of Research, Strategies for Edits and Revision, and How To Develop A Character Driven Plot. Thank you and keep up the great work!

      Clay, thanks for the feedback. As a matter of fact, all of the topics you mention are going to be covered in future episodes. Not sure when, but we’ll get to them eventually!

      Thanks again,
      James
