Re: Forum Suggestions Box

Would there be any interest in having a place where people could help each other out with setting or character details? For example: I've got a main character who had a very rough upbringing, is basically self-educated and books became, for various reasons, very important to him. It seems clear a co...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

Here it is, the definitive answer. I love this: "Volcanic Ash Cloud Turns Out to Be Finale of LOST" - http://www.borowitzreport.com/2010/04/1 ... e-of-lost/

Re: Best TV show of all time?

Sports Night! Yes! And I don't even like sports much. Again, it's Aaron Sorkin. When can we get him to write a new TV show?

Re: Best TV show of all time?

I'm sure I will forget some (and sorry, I can't choose just one), but . . . I really, really miss The West Wing. (Does anybody know what Aaron Sorkin is doing these days?) I loved Star Trek: TNG. I loved M*A*S*H way back when, but the sexism really bothers me now. (I know, I know.) The old Twilight ...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

I'm posting a theory on behalf of my husband, who e-mailed this to me this morning: It is a commentary/allegory on the nature of humanity and religion. The black-smoke guy represents the id (or something like it) – wild, untamed and amoral. Jacob represents religion that man developed to control the...

Re: The importance (and difficulty) of gestures

This is a great topic. I'm afraid I don't have much to add to this conversation because this is one of the things I am struggling with. My first draft--almost finished now--is riddled with this problem. I've blown by it much of the time because, well, it's a first draft. When I get into revisions, t...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

It seems to me the point of the flash sideways has been accomplished: to show us that the characters and their fates are the same no matter what universe they exist in, no matter how events transpire or would have transpired for them. Sayid does not get to be with Nadia because of his sins, no matte...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

So? The island is the place where the Devil (in whatever incarnation they ultimately decide to go with) is imprisoned to protect the rest of the planet from him?

Re: East Coast Blizzard (Friday, Feb. 5)

On behalf of those of us living in the actual northeast (i.e., northern New England), let me just say that you folks in the mid-Atlantic STOLE OUR SNOW! We're looking at brown patches up here. My husband hasn't had to go out on the roof to shovel in over a month. My kids can't go sledding. What's th...

Re: Unreasonable Expectations

Casnow, to borrow from a former president: I feel your pain. Anyone who knows me knows that one of my worst flaws is my pervasive, consistent impatience. It's present in all parts of my life. A wiser person than I might have structured her life accordingly, but me? I decided to become a mother and a...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

Oh no, sucked into the Procrastination forum again. First Star Trek, now this. First, theory #2 can exist on its own, but theory #1 can only co-exist with theory #2 because the events on the island post-date the Oceanic flight. Right? Are they doing a fate thing? No matter how it happens, these peop...

Re: the drawer novel

Wise advice, Nathan, as always. Though I'm not sure if that was meant to be encouraging re: the first novel or not! Either way, the "always keep learning" part is key, in writing and in just about everything else.
