Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Welcome, Stryker, Ben, and Muri! And wow, Strycher and Stryker... I foresee all sorts of confusing fun here. But still, how to remember... ::starts chanting to self:: "Stryker with a K! Wants to hide in a cave! Stryker with a K! Wants to hide in a cave!" Of course, it rhymes (somewhat), bu...

Re: The dhooooooooooooom scammer

Although, actually, on second thought, maybe their evil plan is just to fill our heads with the "Doom! Doom!" line from Moria in LotR. Because that's definitely what's stuck in my head now. =P

Maybe they're hoping that we'll click on the many links in their sig?

Who knows. wotf005 The Benedict Cumberbatch gif is very apt, though, Strycher. =)

Re: File Recovery

Strangely it has sometimes happened before when I've been forced to re-write a piece that I've lost that it turns out better than it was. Being a seat-of-the-pants type of writer I'm not always sure exactly where I'm going and I have to edit quite vigorously when I've finished a draft. This time I ...

Re: Getting Ahead.

Kudos, Steve! Sounds like your new strategy is working well! I was half-expecting for the "story ending" to be that you were considering giving up the writing. So glad that's not the case!

Very inspiring post, and best wishes to you!

Hello, lovely people! So, intro: I decided that I wanted to be a professional writer when I was in high school, but I got discouraged pretty quickly. (Ironically, the "last straw" for me was getting a personalized rejection, which I didn't know was a good sign.) Writing and I have had a sp...
