Re: Critique/Review Sites and Groups

I've taken and given crits on both Forward Motion and AW, and I posted once in a forum I won't mention where I don't like the attitudes. Membership long since lapsed in that one, lol. I am a member of a fossilized Yahoo group that hasn't been active since whatsername's firstborn. Critters didn't app...

Re: Should bloggers charge for their writing?

How would a blog get a following in the first place if it wasn't free? The fact is, most blogs are so bad or so boring that readers should be paid LOL

Re: Foruming and our writing

Your fondest hopes and mine. However I hang around in several writers' fora and reality gets grungy in the big ones. Txt kiddies who suddenly want to write a novel after being inspired by movies and games...oy. One of a foruming writer's assumed responsibilities is educating the poor wretches, or at...

Re: The New Website

Can I ask a stupid question? What's a favicon? It's an icon from a website that your web browser can display on its bookmark menu for that particular website.

Sometimes I have to avoid looking into certain areas until the thread has passed on to the second page because it so fries me up. I snark at them when it seems safe to, heh-heh.

I have four or five unfinished stories right now. I work on whatever my head is in the right state for. One at a time is okay too, but I start other things if the brain gets knotted.
