Re: Writers and Being Lonely

My brother suggested to me not too long ago that playing an instrument would help clear my mind, because when he plays the guitar, he thinks of nothing but the chords. It really does, but I'm not sure it has to be an expensive or even official one, like the piano or guitar, etc. Heck, you could pro...

Re: Do you have a new blog post?

Today we conclude Micah's two-part tale, and hopefully get a better sense of how he and Fenris (not me) work together in the face of an overwhelming enemy. Read the second installment at http://harbingercodex.blogspot.com/2011 ... art-2.html

Re: Writers and Being Lonely

We've had a lot of rain here lately, can you tell? :3 Same here, storms too. When I'm not swimming into town I'm huddling in my house for fear of flying branches and tornadoes. Fun weather, but at least I like the windstorms. It's kind of an endless circle. Same for me, but rather than drawing/writ...

Re: Writers and Being Lonely

I'm finding balance really hard to maintain right now. It seems like the days of writers being hermits who get to spend their days writing and being eccentric are long gone. Now there's so much pressure to get out there and promote not only your books, but yourself, to the entire internet. I spend ...

Re: Do you have a new blog post?

Today we return to Hrym and Rose as they experience the darker side of the world they're on, but at least they have the fortune to run into...wait, I can't tell you yet. Find out here: http://harbingercodex.blogspot.com/2011 ... valry.html

Re: What Do You Write For?

That, and all their vices are attributed to humans. For instance, one is an alcoholic, but he never would have drank if humans didn't give him liquor as offerings. They wouldn't have started a war if the humans didn't create the concept of war. Stuff like that. Interesting...so humans make their ow...

Re: Do you have a new blog post?

A bit late in terms of posting today, but it's up. Today's story focuses on Storm again, a minor antagonist from Harbinger, and shows us a bit of the light behind her darker demeanor. Read more at http://harbingercodex.blogspot.com/2011 ... g-lie.html

Re: What Do You Write For?

So its kinda like humanity is influencing the gods and not vice versa. That's an interesting reversal. I suppose it could be explained by that trope that Gods Need Prayer Badly, so are willing to change to suit the humans in order to receive worship, though there are certainly other ways of accompl...

Re: I have a blog. Now what do I do with it?

That's good to hear because I've only been blogging for a couple of weeks (i try to post something every weekday), and I was starting to worry if it was really worth it. Sounds like we're in the same boat, then. I have the same worries every now and then, but it really all comes down to time. Our b...

Re: What Do You Write For?

BTW...I'm sorry if it seems we've hijacked this thread to anyone that may be offended. Not a problem, we'll just steer it back! So one reason I like having Christian themes and characters in my writing is so that I can explore my beliefs through my characters--kind of a variation of inner demons, t...

Re: What Do You Write For?

They also tend to put agnostic in the same grouping, which I feel is different as well (I was agnostic for a long time). Well, from what I've heard (which may be wrong), atheists simply do not believe in God, but agnostics are kind of on the fence and might be willing to believe if someone is able ...

Re: Writers and Being Lonely

My characters keep me company. However, if your question was "do you ever just feel the need to gush to someone else about your story," then the answer is yes. But I find that incredibly frustrating because whenever I do explain to someone one of my unfinished ideas, it invariably falls apart/goes i...

Re: Curious on opinions in writing styles

I realize at this point I'm kind of just adding one more voice to the clamor, but I agree that whatever POV works best for the story is probably the best choice. And if there is no reason to change it, then don't. However, I'll add a bit of my experience here (such as it is): a book does not have to...

Re: What Do You Write For?

Most people that are totally against it aren't necessarily athiest, but more anti-thiest (yes there's a difference). You're right, there is a difference, and I think your term "anti-theist" captures it better than my "hardcore atheist." Looking back at my earlier post I think I could have put it be...
