Re: The Coffee Shop - JULY

I only know how to make a few things (I'm not Indian, and only started eating Indian food a few years ago, but yes, good Indian food is something that I must have on occasion). I'm Indian (but I can't cook bacon let alone a full dinner of any sorts.) For some reason I love Chinese and Italian (not ...

Re: J.K. Rowling's new book - The Casual Vacancy

I think most hardback adult books when they are first released are between $25-29. The price comes down pretty quickly though after a few weeks-months. Yup. $27 is the most common. And a lot of times if you pre-order a book or get it on a first-week-release sale a hardcover will cost you $16. $35 i...

If writing was a person....

What would you do to him/her? Would you shake hands, give her a hug and thank her for all the joyous adventure she has given you? Personally, I think writing and me are in a bad place. If I saw Writing right now I would probably strangle her and ask why she makes my life so difficult. And then run h...

Re: J.K. Rowling's new book - The Casual Vacancy

The cover for the book was just released today. I think I'm becoming a conspiracy theorist after all. The cover is kinda "meh" and the blurb remains so..."blah." They've confirmed the e-book will be 19.99 and the hardback 35. Everything about this release is so weird . It almost feels like an exper...

Re: The Coffee Shop - JULY

The Percy Jackson series is one of my all-time favorites, no matter how many times I read it. Mine too! I just bought them all from Amazon as a birthday gift to myself :D Urgh, hands up, who wants to rip up their first page, toss it out of the window, then in the middle of the night sneak out, set ...

Re: Characters with accents

bloke, git, knickers, bloody, etc. as well as some more complex phrasing. I didn't even think about how these aren't something a typical American says! But oh my gosh, Joseph the Yorkshire gardener in Wuthering Heights. I was literally skipping his dialogue when I first read that book. And I unders...

Re: The Coffee Shop - JULY

Being a writer is a very manic profession We are all certifiably insane to do it. You're right: we all just need to push through it, and keep going, and remember why we write in the first place. (For the money.... :lol: ) It is something we love doing. We love it. We love it. In the same way you lo...

Re: Family interference

That happens to me all the time. I'll be sitting in my room, writing away, and someone will come in: "What're you doing?" "Writing." "Still? Haven't you been working on that for life a year? Are you not done yet?" *Bites back comment of "I would be done if you could leave me alone!"* My family knows...

Ha ha so do I! It'll be really late and everyone else will be asleep, and I'll be fumbling around trying to write all of it down

Re: The Coffee Shop - JUNE

And writersink, was it you who linked to the Pub Rants post? I'm sorry, I don't remember. Either way, thank you. I'm absolutely putting the cart before the horse. Back to writing I go... Ha, it wasn't me, it was wilderness! You were close - we both start with W! LOL. That's it, I'm getting an icon!...

Re: National Novel Writing JULY - Word Count Challenge

I'm determined to get my WIP edited by the end of this month. My progress won't be on word count but will be on the amount of editing I've managed to do. It's a weird one, I know, but I need all the motivation I can get. Goal 1: Fix all plot holes Goal 2: Get some major rewrites done for the entire ...
