I can work with this.


That seems a bit extreme, which I'm sure is the point. wotf001 'The Gift of Dust' would actually catch my attention as a reader, though, as would 'The Monster's Awakening'. wotf011

Re: Story Titling

I think titles are supremely important--but I may be biased because I love coming up with them. Like Dustin, I feel like the core of the story should be in the title. A great title should also set the tone and at least hint at the genre for a story before you ever even start to read it. I was also ...

Re: Story Titling

Titles are always hard for me. Always always always. A friend of mine sent me an image ages ago that I actually have as my desktop background despite its simplicity, simply because it does such an accurate job of describing how I feel about the writing process sometimes. http://img.photobucket.com/a...

Re: Anyone else on DeviantArt?

I have a deviantART account I haven't touched in ages. I'm nowhere near good enough to enter the Illustrator's contest, but I am a huge fan of art in general. :)

Re: Short story collections

I'm a big fan of 'Maps in a Mirror: The Short Fiction of Orson Scott Card'. I've got two different Neil Gaiman collections I love, and while I can't list off specific collections Ray Bradbury amazes me whenever I find his work. Those are the authors that stick in my mind.

I finally learned how to post avatars. Now I'd like to learn to post pictures and gifs. It's all part of my continuing education. wotf001 It's all a matter of putting the image link in between those wonderful img tags. wotf008 Example! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v223/disgruntledpeony/houseca...

Re: Science Fiction and Fantasy on TV.

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hi! I'm a newbie. I haven't actually submitted to the contest yet, although I am *strongly* considering it. (By that I mean that I fully intend to submit a story I've been working on but I'm not sure it's 100% ready yet. I'm still in the giddy "I just finished!" stage.) If you're looking f...
