Unless the extensive physical description of someone or a place adds to the story's plot or is significant in its meaning, I would stray away from long d...

Re: Craptastic covers... what are your pet peeves?

I designed my own cover myself and hired a 3D Argentinian artist I found on www.3dtotals.com to make a render of an image I wanted (which I drew on paper and scanned first). It cost me 400$. This is the same method J.J. Abrams used to find the artist that designed the Fringe opening credits, as well...

Re: TWILIGHT - thoughts?

It's not an epic fail if it made me laugh. She or he portrayed a sense of humor in that post, while speaking the truth. She forgot to mention the annoying arrogance and snobbery of some writers as a factor that boosts the popularity of those angry Twilight destructo posts, but I think that was meant...

Re: TWILIGHT - thoughts?

I read the first three and found them very interesting... it has an enticing story, but I realized I wanted more mythology and less romance...

Re: Reading Translations

I'm French Canadian and was raised entirely in French, except for the English lessons in grade and high school. Then when I was 7 my father moved to Ontario for his work, and since my parents were already bilingual (in fact most TV shows or movies they listened or watched were dubbed in English, sin...
