I LOVE having writer friends! Had dinner with Pat Nash and discussed my new vampire short story with her. She said ONE WORD and the brick wall I was facing with the plot collapsed. Had breakfast at Lunacon with Pauline Alama (Eye of Night). She said ONE SENTENCE and I decided to rewrite the beginning of the story I'm submitting to Sword and Sorceress.
Of course, writer friends can also create a lot of extra work! ;-)
