    Never sure about your musings, Prop but if Tony Bits ever existed, I'm sure he would appreciate your tribute. May he rest in peace; knowing you treated his demise as you would treat that of any other dear friend. I can't imagine a worse fate ...

    Watching this blog carefully for useful tips. I use Firefox - which seems most compatible with the Cloud - but always have difficulties copying and pasting from Msn Word! Aaaarrrggghhhhhh! Thinking my PC may be a bit like me ... too old!!

    It takes a certain strength to see that what fate dishes out is sometimes as absurd as it is tragic and that it isn't always disrespectful to laugh. Sorry about Tony and well done for telling us his story so engagingly.

    Nibs, there's another way around it. If you're after a serious crit of your script, why not put it in Crits on the Forum? Blogs, as far as I'm aware, are usually for more informal discussion. Why struggle with something that's not going to do the ...

    To be honest I did get the joke once you replied to my first message but by then it was too late. I'd forgotten all about it up until I read Prop's blog. what you wrote in your comment sounded familiar and I thought that you were talking about me. ...

    I thought we had. That's was months ago. I wasn't referring to in in my comment on that blog. Not even referring to people on here. Just people in general. To be honest, I thought you'd got the joke and was joking back. Didn't even realize there had ...

    NaNoWrMo is a perfect example of the kind of motivation that gets you over the hump, so to speak. Editing afterwards is the real joy :-)

    Dear Nibs, also if you mean by a "short script" something that contains specific formatted fields:~ I have to tell you that none of that will make it onto here. Even carefully re-formatting doc fields into a rich text (that looks ok) once here ...

    I agree stephen, 100%, I just meant that sometimes if you write when the heart isn't in it, you end up writing BS, when really getting a motivation booster would have been time better spent. Although I think Whisks has a good point too: being scared ...

    bdcharles Just revived a rather flat, tell-y scene with pictures of the Portland Japanese Garden. Straight to the top of the bucket list with you!

    Wonder if you're not frightened of failure and frightened of success. Both cause paralysis. Take the heat (importance) out of it and treat these two impostors just the same. No big deal, either way. Write a sentence - any old sentence - then another ...

    You could take up pie-eating, it works for many people :-) LOL. I am just the opposite to you, I have to discipline myself not to write. The temptation is grave, but sometimes I manage to do some work instead. Others, I just bang away at the ...

    Good points well made, BC. However, writing, like any other discipline - learning the piano; becoming a champion pie-eater; rowing the Atlantic in a coracle or swimming up the Amazon caked in lard, requires endless, interminable practice - even when ...

    As much as I agree with stephen mark, there is also truth in not forcing it. If you are writing first and foremost for enjoyment, then there's no point in turning it into a chore. I find that if I lose my motivation, watching movies or reading books ...

    dyslexic of dartford commented on Scarlett's wall:
    Just to be clear, when I took down the joke that I left on Prop's blog it was because I thought that you'd been offended by it. In the back of my mind I had a recollection of somebody writing a serious blog about a family member that suffered from a ...

    Thanks for the post, ST, it's great to get honest feedback on what the process was like with this company.

    Yes, do, Whisks. I recently re-read the three original Earthsea books, and they were just as fresh, moving and wonderful as when I first read them nearly 40 years ago. I believe they are her own favourites.

    Scarlett Reading Rachel Abbott's 'Only The Innocent'. Been up half the night, couldn't put it down. Highly recommended read! Unless you want a good nights sleep.

    It's not often that I make a serious comment in Prop's space but I just might. I think it was on the BBC web site that I read about disabled business owners who are tired of being labelled Inspirational. They would rather be seen as business people. ...

    I enjoyed reading this. But I have to say I am deeply offended that you mentioned people being deeply offended. Psychiatry is a very SERIOUS mental illness and those practising it should be handled with care. When they tell you not to do what the ...

    Fabulous, Prop! I very much enjoyed reading :D I imagine there's not many pubs in England where you don't have to duck to enter! As for Noah, it's just a case of accepting that we are all different. Go, Noah x

    There is a story there Prop. The Thing takes on a life of its own, searching out its next stump. Another transformation; shortening, lengthening - or a non drinker maybe. The arm going to a hairdresser perhaps? Yes, here in Benin there is a ...
