Re: Almost Success - The "Mixed Feelings" Thread

Re: Five Minute Rant

Grr...and now when I just went to sumbit my story to Daily Science Fiction...I spent an hour fixing up the paragraphs. Then I click submit and it tells me to log in again. So I do...and I get sent right back to the submission page, and all that time fixing it up was for nothing. Never again am I go...

Re: Science Fiction and Fantasy on TV.

I'm with you. To me, more Star Wars is a good thing!

And we have to remember, the internet "experts" will pooh-pooh on anything. How else would they be able to convince people that their opinion mattered? wotf007

What's pissing you off? Is he pointing out issues in the stories? Or is he not pointing out anything and just saying "It's fine"? Or is it just the way he does it?

Re: Five Minute Rant

Happens to me, too. I've found that if I save my word doc as a .txt file before I copy and paste, it generally preserves a more readable format (but I still have to make tweaks by hand). I ran into the same problem and did the same thing. Doesn't get it exactly, but it's closer than .doc formatting.

But this is a speculative fiction forum! Trolls should be as common as dragons, zombies, aliens, and robots around here. (And at least as hungry as Gators!)
