Just wanted to direct people (especially DW) over to Jon Paul's Blog, where he is doing an excellent series of posts. Often to many of us, writing is like going to war, you have to have a battle plan!
Well in JP's BattlePlan Posts, he uses his military experience and knowledge to help you layout a plan for your writing. I highly recommend you drop by his blog and take a look! Gives you a whole new perspective on writing :)
