  1. Looking at this list, it gives both the reader and the writer in me hope that these were the pages that got the most hits. What’s nice about this as “the” list for 2012 is the mixture of focus on craft, and on art, something that I think many of us who write struggle with.
    My favorite would have to be the one about the ten questions that your reader shouldn’t have to ask – if we’re not serving our readers as we write, then really, why bother?
    I’m so glad I discovered your blog this year!

  2. I find that balance between art and craft particularly important. Craft is the left brain side; art is the right brain. Together, they make for a wonderfully complete and balanced approach. The best of both worlds!

    So glad you’re enjoying the blog!
