Got some leads for you this morning.  I have the benefit of not having a harried schedule today so this should be a nice list.

I got a nice e-mail from a fellow writer today asking some questions.  I just wanted to be clear that anyone is welcome to contact me at any time – the only reason I have you do so through a form is to avoid being spammed to death.  I am no “expert”, but I am working and prospecting right along with you and am happy to help out whenever I can.

It’s almost the weekend!  Next week, look out for some twitterpimping on the blog.  I highly recommend getting a Twitter account for all of you writers out there.  You can tweet stuff like links to your work, how your day is going, not what you had for lunch (unless it was exotic and singularly awesome), and generally just join the human community that is Twitter.  On to the weekend, but first, your leads…
