    I got stuck for ideas a while back for the second book of Granny Rainbow stories, so I opened it up to readers: the best idea would be written up by me and included!It seems a bit like cheating - to pick someone else's brain for an idea and then ...

    After the SE course, I took a month off to play golf in my spare time. I am now contemplating picking up the pieces of my WIPs and salvaging wrecks of sunken manuscripts. My book as simply exploded. I looked at my disk drives and I have chapters ...

    Ah, yes? I've not been but I'm guessing it's the Palladian style architecture. Bath's full of it. Thanks, Prop!

    I like that forgotten beatitude, Richard. But perhaps we should add something at the end? 'Blessed are they who expect little, for they shall not be disappointed. And occasionally, they might be pleasantly surprised...' ;)

    stephenterry I won! a signed copy of Things Gone Astray by Janina Matthewson - thanks to the generosity of Scott Pack, who is going to post it to me in Thailand. Sounds like a great novel - very different.

    Only a bit published Richard. As for weighing in the scale, I expect the only one doing that for me is me. But I tend to do that three or four times a day.

    For people to read it and enjoy it... That's a pretty big 'if'. Suffice to say it's much more likely for that to happen with the distribution network, clout and credibility of a mainstream publisher behind it. I hear a lot of people say that if they ...

    Old Fat Prop Back in Mudflat after a week away. New cider in the Duck & Dive ... Sui-cider... 7.3% abv.... Four pints down and half a gallon to go.. Not sure it was a good choice for cider of the week. It seems Killer Billy hit Doug'l Watson with the pool table. More flows...

    You've hit it on the head, Squidge. That's the validation that's more important than anything else: to know that people are reading it and enjoying it. The problem is how to make that happen. By the way, I seem to remember you were the first person ...

    Stoked
    Stoked Writer's Game: Can you tell a story, (beginning,middle,end) with only six word? Good luck, enjoy. Writer's Myth: While lunching with friends at a restaurant, Hemingway bets the table ten dollars each that he can craft an entire story in six words. After the pot is assembled, Hemingway writes "For sale: baby shoes, never worn" on a napkin, passes this around the table, and collects his winnings.
