Re: FLY or NOT FLY ???

I have no choice unless I want to drive through snow-covered mountains in the dead of winter to go home for Christmas. And who wants to do that?

Oh, maybe I will. Who knows.

Re: Do you have a new blog post?

I re-posted (with some current insights) an old post on characters. Link is after the signature.

P.S. I do hope to be around a lot more soon. School just takes over all my time.

Re: Do you have a new blog post?

I re-posted an old post about naming characters as part of my blogiversary celebration. I'll be doing so throughout the month, but there will also be new content.

Link's after the signature.

Re: The SQUEE GOOD NEWS Thread

Still no word on the internship. BUT I did get a new job today! The place I've been working was no longer working. Literally. In the past few weeks I've gone from having 16-18 hours in a week to none. I work tomorrow, miracle of miracles, and I get to tell them it's the last time they'll see me as a...

Re: Is this a joke?? Nathan? Really?

Sadly, he really is. One of his clients blogged about it today, too. She's now repped by another agent at CB. *tears*

RE: the recipe, sounds amazing! Change one more ingredient and you can call it your own!

As for Cooks Source, apparently now the Facebook fan page has been hacked with an even more ridiculous "apology" from the editor.

Re: The Cooks Source Blow-Up

If you change 3 ingredients in a recipe, the original owner has no legal claim over yours.

Re: Quoting poetry in a novel?

I think so. I'd check and see if these two have fallen into public domain. I am pretty sure that Shakespeare is. Not so sure about Poe.

Re: What paper size and format should your manuscript be in?

Do not design a cover, do not put it together as a book. These will be red flags to any agent you send to. And it's likely an agent will start with only a partial request, which would be difficult to accommodate if you've bound it as a self-published book. Just my two cents from everything I've read...

Re: The Cooks Source Blow-Up

Definitely on all counts, Margo. It's been interesting to watch in the last year and a half now that I've been actively blogging to see how much can change when something hits the internet. From book cover outrage to this.

Re: The Cooks Source Blow-Up

This whole fiasco is so...ugh! That's why I've got a little copyright notice on the bottom of my blogs. It showed up on Twitter yesterday and because I was away at school all morning, I came in on it late. But I really hope this all shakes out for the benefit of authors everywhere.
