Re: What's My Name Again?

You know, one of my favorite series, Hush Hush, is written first person (I think, if I remember correctly, SEE HOW BAD MY BRAIN IS). It took me a moment but I remembered it, and I'm terrible at names. Nora. Her name is Nora. Because Patch says her name all the time. At first, often teasingly. And T...

Re: 250 Word Sharathon--post the opening of your WIP

Ohhh! I'll play! Though in total fairness, it might take me a while to get comments out to all of you who have posted, so please bear with me. And after scanning some other submissions, I'm hesitant to put this over-descriptive section out here since I know it needs a lot of work, but the only way ...

Re: Paper plates

It's always okay to suck~! It's the adventure that counts~! Anyone else seen the movie Keeping the Faith? "I love that I suck!" (It's a great romantic comedy with Edward Norton, Ben Stiller, and Jenna Elfman. Ben Stiller's character is a rabbi and he's trying to coach a bar mitzvah student to sing ...

Re: 250 Word Sharathon--post the opening of your WIP

Sierra - Wow, that was raw writing, completely unedited? I wish mine was that good. Sometimes I'm lucky to get a second or third draft that refined. I love the writing, and the characters seem very engaging, but I have no idea what's happening right now. The two-foot-tall tree creature thing really...

Re: Yes! We will publish your novel… If…

As a writer, I'm sorry, I wouldn't do it. This is one reason I'm finding it difficult to have faith in traditional publishing. Cut out this many words? I can do that. Change this scene or snip that scene? Maybe, sure, possible. Kill off this character, change that character, totally reem book? No. T...

Tardy to the party~! I'm not good at giving critique right now...but from what I have read all of this is very nice, and a couple are really good and I would love to read more! This is my August NaNo, completely unedited. XD So yeah. Not that great really. --- Waking up with the cold metal of the sh...

Re: Oh Crap Breast Cancer

Just let us know if there's anything we can do. And, since terrible humor is my way of handling things (laughter keeps those endorphins up!), please keep us 'abreast' of the situation.

[hugs] You are in our thoughts and prayers!

Re: Novel Writing: How Long Does One Take?

I once read\heard it takes 3-5 years to successfully write a book. I laughed back then. Now...now I just snicker because I know it's true. It's not the /writing/ part. It's the writing-editing-trying not to go insane. But that was back before eBooks were popular and I could say pfft to all the other...

Re: Time of Day?

Early morning, first thing when I wake up, and that time between 11:30pm and 2am. I bet if I didn't have a job\life I could probably live like a cat.

Eat, write, nap, bathe a little, eat, write, nap, play with stuff, repeat.
