Re: SYNOPSIS: Redemption For Liars - EDITED

I find the second one reads pretty well.

Re: Most Handsome Character in Anime

A spammer probably started the thread, got evicted, but not before the thread had been replied to.

Re: Most Handsome Character in Anime

Now if I had to pick the best looking writer -- cuz this is a writing forum -- I'd probably go with Ernest Hemingway. Cute guy.

Re: Time to start a blog?

Do you actually want to blog? If not, why contemplate doing so? If so, what do you wish to blog about? To what purpose? Will you aim it at your readers (promotion) or other writers (networking)?
