Re: Analog Submissions

Don't get your hopes up for a fast response from Analog...I subbed on March 2nd and it is still just registering as "received." I basically forget about it for weeks at a time. Response will come when it comes I suppose. wotf017

Re: WorldCon Roll Call

Alas, I won't be attending. But I went to Renovation a few years ago, and it was my first WorldCon. I was way too shy. I couldn't bring myself to approach any writers or editors and was way to chicken to attend any parties. Don't do that. By the time I loosened up on Saturday night after the Hugos a...

Re: Quid pro quo

Hi Mike! Not sure if you know this already, but the law protects your work even when it is not officially copyrighted. As soon as you write it down, you are safe. You'd obviously need proof of when you wrote it, but that should be easy enough to pull out of your word processor if it ever becomes nec...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Welcome all! In a similar vein as the above comments, Orson Scott Card wrote once that all writers have to be crazy, because to be successful, you must believe two contradictory things at the same time: (1) that your work is genius, and (2) that your work is crap. The belief in genius lets you write...

Re: Five Minute Rant

I heard once that if you want to know if a chef is really good, order the simplest thing on the menu. It is hard to cook simple dishes super well. There is no sauce slathered everywhere to cover up the over-cooked meat, for example. I think writing linear, "simplistic" stories is very diff...
