Re: Share Your Summer Reading List

I love these lists, I use them to look for things I want to read. I'm about to start on Meg Cabot's next book. I'm in the middle of Susan Quinn's debut YA novel, which I'm enjoying. I've decided to re-read Asimov's Foundation series. Flat Out Love by Jessica Park was recommended by Bezos (Amazon's C...

Do you ever sleep on it?

I've noticed something recently. I'll be struggling with a tough line, or a tough transition, and then I'll go to sleep, or even take a nap, and I'll have some new ideas when I wake up! :) Sometimes it takes a really nice direction. Good to know my unconscious is looking out for me. Anyone else have...

Re: Any M/M erotic romance writers in here?

No, not M/M.

But maybe M/W. Under a pen name. In the distant future. I've thought about it. Seems like it would be pretty fun to write! :)

Re: The SQUEE GOOD NEWS Thread

Ryan, that is terrific news! Congratulations, both on finishing your I-pad version (yay!) and reaching #43. And I don't think Travels with Pets is all that obscure. :)

Enjoy moving forward - it feels good. :)

Re: Breaking down a published novel's story

Great question, not silly at all I really like polymath's answer. I want to add that there could be great value in doing this yourself, but you would probably find that many people have also done this. There are probably also tools already in existence for breaking a novel down. You might do alittle...

Re: Other Forms of Expression

Great question.

I'd do graphic design. I love to layout things and add clip art to them.

Mega-fun. :)

Re: When can you tell the gender of a writer?

Wow. What a great thread. I want to chip in my 2 cents. First, kudos to you, Hillsy, for asking this question. It's a really good one. Btw, I also assumed you were male. But I've heard that every writer has a voice, and that voice can be either feminine or masculine, but it doesn't necessarily relat...

Re: How do you know if your writing is any good?

You guys are fantastic. I've been reading these as I go along, but I haven't had a chance to come back and thank everyone for the feedback. I really appreciate everyone's wisdom, and Hillsy's analysis, which had my head spinning. And Ryan, you're right. Because some things I write are personal, that...

Re: Weird google phrases for your blog

delorfinde, you bring up a really good point. People type some very strange things into Google.
Just imagine someone typing "I'm going underground" and why they would type that?

Charlee, LOL. I like 'welcome to the jungle'. I can't imagine the post that relates to! :)
