      new-bee-author Cor, yeah! I imagine you wearing a double-breasted 1940s suit, with your dark hair slicked back (a bit like Al Bowlly) and sipping a cocktail while casually balancing your cigarette holder in the other hand.

      new-bee-author JD, is this it? “Keeper of the Clockwork Queen” by Scott Hamilton? I was looking for something under 'JD whatever' but are you Scott Hamilton? Or, if not, tell me how I can get to your story, please!

      Daedalus I suspect it's this one http://fantasy-faction.com/2017/monthly-short-story-winner-find-the-story-in-the-picture - great story, really atmospheric.

      new-bee-author Wow, JD! It was fabulous! My favourite JDism - **Rustbucket hulls drifted by with magisterial slowness** lots of other lush word pics. Know what, you're a darned talented fellow, BD Charles! Is that your real name, then? I'm guessing it's something like 'Beverly Darcy Charles' or 'Benedict Dameon'?

      JD Love it! Beverly Darcy it is. Maybe I should continentalise it a bit: Beverley D'Arcy.

    "JD" commented on Caducean Whisks's Blog ""It's only a sin if you feel remorse"".
    @ Whisks - indeed. My thinking tends towards Daeds' and Emma's here. Guilt is pretty low level evolutionary stuff, and things that make us feel guilty do so because they carry a risk of being ostracised from the group. In our genes seems to be a ...

    "JD" commented on Caducean Whisks's Blog ""It's only a sin if you feel remorse"".
    But surely if you feel remorse that's a step toward atonement, forgiveness, or the righting of wrongs, be they religious, moral, or personal. It doesn't mean the transgression never happened, just that its effect has been negated somewhat. What was ...

    "JD" commented on Squidge's Blog "Pandering to male readers?".
    Readingwise I can go any way - male-by-a-male, female-by-female, and any mix-and-match thereof - but I tend to write female characters. Why? I honestly don't know. I was raised in a house of women, have two daughters, many female friends and just ...

      Athelstone This is the "custom" 403 notification with a Writer's Workshop background? The way that the Cloud displays these messages is part of the Cloud's own programming and not necessarily a genuine internet error. Might be worth having a word with the WW

    JD I love the email spammer names. Addison Berrington? Sherman Kerns. Autumn Bradberry, for God's sake?! Who wouldn't want to read a book about them? Some sound like pen names: "I Miss You" by Kalani Farrell tops the readers' charts. "Experiments In Bed" makes Booker shortlist for newcomer Brielle Creighton. "Xenical" by Hershel Banks to be made into screenplay starring Shia LeBoeuf.
