Re: Five Minute Rant

You're never going to catch everything. Even published works still have typos. With my last two stories I had: -11 people read before the 12th person noticed I had typed "marital" and meant "martial" -6 people read before someone noticed an affect/effect confusion (and by "...

Re: Five Minute Rant

It's not Mishoe; it's MLShoe, as in Martin L. Shoemaker. It's my usual nickname on boards that don't encourage full names. And I'm sorry if it came across as damage. There was a lot I liked there. Oops, But I should say that the damage was done to my mood at the moment. Sometimes it doesn't really ...

Re: Five Minute Rant

Thanks for the suggestion Rebecca. I may have to try it, nothing else has worked. Well, one story had hardly any nitpicks but when I tried to copy what I did for that story it left a bunch of stuff in the next story. I look like I have even tried to proofread it when I worked over time on it. Of cou...

Re: Five Minute Rant

Shoemaker: Are we talking about the Universe Annex stories? My quote you use is from that part of my post. I just checked and unless you go by another screen name there I didn't see a post form you on the story I'm referencing. But most of the damage was done by Edith, DrCrispy and Mishoe even thoug...

Re: Five Minute Rant

Hopefully there's only one of these that show up. I think I tried Bullspec once. Didn't seem to have any problems--took a while, if it's the one I'm thinking of, but some others online do also so that didn't bother me too much. But in the last couple of weeks got some rejections back with my best wr...

Re: Five Minute Rant

I'm not sure about certain days of the week, like Saturday, but there are specific dates I feel a rejection worse on. Probably more mental and/or emotional but there it is.

Re: Five Minute Rant

Interesting idea, that's one reason I put up a blog to vent and/or rant at times. I know sometimes I feel that way. Sometimes I just shrug and begin thinking about where to send the story next and what other stories need to go out but sometimes... That's an interesting UML model but part of it is co...

Thanks,

Finally got on the board...took getting a new computer to do it. The board didn't want to recognize my old computer even after I registered.

Thanks, but I've been writing all along. At least for six years or so, lost count on exactly how many.

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Okay finally found this thread...had a feeling there would be one someplace. I write under the name of L. E. Doggett, older with a wife of 33 years and a daughter who is 22 years old. Been writing most of my life but seriously for the last six-seven years. One story published in a pro market. Had a ...
