Re: So...Star Wars or Star Trek?

Star Wars.

I can appreciate good Star Trek (even though I haven't seen the latest movie yet) but in an either/or situation, gotta go with Han Solo all the way.

Re: A question for outliners

There was another Forum post on outlining vs. out of the misting, and I do a combo of both (and do them both poorly!). However, I have a couple of questions for you hard core ouliners.

Re: Writing. What's your favorite part? Your Hardest Lesson?

My favorite part is planning a story out. Discovering characters, setting, how the ideas all fold in together. So far, the hardest part has been letting those planned out characters thumb their noses at me and do whatever they want. They do wind up being more intriguing but it goes against my nature...
