Re: Hooked on the Dragon

I can't imagine why it would matter how the words got on the page in its original manuscript. I would have guessed the reader would never know in the end and so it wouldn't matter. As long as you have given the text its hard core edit the result should be the same. Is there something about the act o...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

Some advice a friend of mine once told me:

Trying to write with small kids is extremely difficult. You should almost always try a pen instead.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

Wow - an everything at once wave! A Super Thursday, as it were. I think I like that as it stops me from trying to read into things to discern if there is a difference between a quick "R" and a delayed one. With enough rejections, I start looking for flavors. Today's was vanilla, I think, b...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

This might be jumping the gun a bit, but seeing how a lot of forum members have already turned in their Q4 stories and are working on Q1, I thought I'd start this thread. For Q1 I'm writing a Fantasy. My last three entries have been more science fiction. I love science fiction, love to read it, but...

Appreciated! I admit, for a moment I was suddenly back in the third grade and I was the first kid knocked out in a game of dodge ball.
