What's the longest you've ever gone without writing?

Like, in your adult life, no need to count the first 10 years.

For me, I think the most is around three months. What about you?

Soccer!

Who watches soccer? Personally I find it to be the perfect sport to write to (at least, if I don't have a rooting interest in the teams that are playing). It's good background noise, you can pay attention when something exciting is happening, and it's on during prime writing time. I'm excited about ...

Re: Helpful Advice You Received With Regards to Writing

What do you mean by verbs that require an object? Can you give some examples? I'm a little grammar challenged.

Re: Newsletters & Subscribers - To build or not to build?

Newsletters can definitely be a great tool, but they're *a* tool, and yeah, I think you're going to likely have a better result with organic lists than you are with paid ones. One of the challenges with paid advertising is that unless you are very sophisticated it's pretty difficult to get revenue p...

Self-publishing audio?

Has anyone self-published an audio version of their book? How did you do it and how did it go?

How do you get yourself out of a writing rut?

I'm on record saying writers block doesn't exist. It means writing has stopped being fun, but I do believe it's possible to power through. That said, what is your best strategy for powering through? I tend to stare at a blinking cursor or try to get some exercise to clear my head, but I'm sure there...

Re: Top 10 TV shows of all time

I really need to watch Deadworld.

And I totally agree about Lost -- it would be on the list if I could only count the first two seasons.

What should these Forums be?

First off, my apologies to the regulars that we had spam assault issues and general neglect. I wasn't able to devote as much time to this as I wanted. But: now I can! What do you want these Forum things to be? Is a message board the best way? Should we switch over to Facebook Groups, Google+ or some...
