Re: Page Critique Friday 11/12/10

Title: Beyond Blackwater Pond Genre: Fantasy Adventure The first hint of morning sun pierced the dusty windowpane, striking Brian Hummel in the eyes. The tall sixteen-year-old sat up groggily and threw his long legs out of bed. The old farmhouse floor creaked as he stood and pushed his mass of dark...

Re: Biting my nails here

Don't be nervous. This is actually one of the best parts in writing. Do you know why? Because nothing can be compared to that feeling when your readers are starting to talk about your characters like if they would be real people and when the readers are curious and taking up questions regarding the...

Re: OT: Queensland floods

Hi guys, It's not exactly procrastination, but I was hoping all of you with with blogs might help to spread the word about the Queensland floods. The flooding now covers an area larger than France and Germany combined, and larger than Texas. Today four people died in Toowoomba, and three children w...

Re: WAITING

How many betas do you have? Maybe if you gave it to 2 or 3 at a time, they'd come back in a staggered fashion, and you won't be so hung up on what one person is doing, or why they're taking longer than expected. That way you can compare what each one had to say, too. And really, 5 days is nothing . ...

Re: Question for the Aussies

I spent a Christmas in Australia once. We all wore colorful paper crowns and pulled apart some kind of wrapped tubish thing that maybe gently exploded? It was a long time ago. But the presents and the tree and Santa were all part of it. Aussies rule! My bad. I just saw the word 'tubish'. They're wh...

Re: Stupid things we think about

I think about these kinds of things all the time . Especially when it comes to food. Like, what could possibly have motivated that first person who saw a chicken essentially drop an egg from its bottom and think, "Man, I'm totally going to eat that thing." OMG, Sommer, that is so true. So true. XD ...

Re: What's Your Ultimate Writing Dream?

I want people to know and love my characters like I do. I want there to be forums about their relationship and who would play them if it was made into a movie. And I would love to have the say on who does play them in a movie, because I'm completely set on Jesse Spencer and Isla Fisher. That's who I...
