Between Sims 3 and World of Warcraft and then the table top role playing games I enjoy I have tons of distractions and yet I manage to read a couple of novels a week. Which I consider to be pretty good with everything else going on. World of Warcraft onli...

Re: Wackiest "advice"/comments you've gotten from non-writers

Here is the worst comment I have ever come across...

"You can't be a good writer because you aren't hooked on drugs or alcohol and you don't smoke"

UM? Really?

On the world of Larynth it is common for the state sponsored child to take over the parent’s profession but at eleven years of age Sarah isn’t ready to step into her mother’s shoes and start whoring. When Frank comes into her life he forces her to do just that after taking what he wants from her. Pl...

Re: Empty Query

You can depict anything you want in a book. Freedom of speech. And there are published books on some very difficult topics, including the ones you list, so this is not new ground. Of course, if you write graphic and/or violent sex scenes involving a minor, that would turn the stomach of just about ...

Re: Empty Query

I do have a question for everyone ... due to the content at the beginning of the book I have avoided age. I know how old she is but I don't want legal trouble. Is there a law against her being too young when the pimp abuses her and pimps her out at parties? I do want to keep her age low because of h...

Thank you! I did use a template ... but perhaps it was an older version from times long past. I will revise and repost.

Re: Is present tense ever okay?

If it is done right present tense is good. It is a little strange to encounter the first time but having read one book with present tense I think I could get to enjoy more.

Re: Writing yourself into a corner...

Is it sad then that I already have an outline? I tried taking this one author's advice: know some of the beginning, some of the middle, and all of the end. The problem is that the middle got lost in a stream of events that are only important later. It's like chauffeuring a friend to the airport. Wh...
