Re: The Bransforumfest Writing Retreat

Sorry I haven't been around, it's been hectic with Thanksgiving, Christmas, moving, packing, unpacking, and a bad case of strep throat :(. Not to mention trying to get my R&R for my top agent in shape. Count me in for Monday- Wednesday! I'll be staying with my sister in Vegas, but I definitely want ...

Re: What would you do?

make some notes for your shiny new project, then press on with the one you've already started. If you allow yourself to get distracted, I'm afraid it will repeat itself continually and you'll never finish anything.

Finish.

Re: Anyone up for a Meet 'n' Greet?

Dang it! Missed this post. Sorry guys, I've been trying to get this first draft down by July 1st, so I haven't been very active here.

But COUNT ME IN! It would be awesome to meet you and hang out. Vegas sounds great.

Re: Comma Question

You've invoked the comma use... Anyone else picturing their imaginary Margo stooped over a bubbling cauldron, waving her hands through the thick smoke and invoking the Comma? No, that's just me giggling over here? Never mind. Yes! And I picture Poly as a Gandalf like wizard imparting his great and ...

Re: Forum Launch Party for Jacob Wonderbar!

Yummy! Nothing says "party" like cupcakes. My son begged me to get it yesterday. He's had a countdown going since I let him watch the trailer. I had nightmares last night that I forgot to get it. He loves anything that has to do with space, so I've got to hunt down a few copies today. (this is him a...

Writer Stereotyping

For example, I chatted up a waiter at IHOP- early twenties, dragon tattoos up both arms and wrapped around his neck. Nose, eyebrow, and ear piercings- you get the picture.
