  1. I just took a look at your site and the Writer's Room. Both are very nice. The site has a clean and uncluttered look, and the posts in the Writer's room are well done and interesting reads. You have an excellent start on a web presence (and good job on your post Alley ).
  2. I agree with carolinamtne, and since my training in school said "always go back to the sources if you can and find out what was really said", I did. The article referenced, has this quote: "Former Vice President Joe Biden – who will never be elected president, by the way – has a message for American Christians: If you don’t defect from your faith and embrace leftism, then you’re going to be added to the government’s terror watch list." But, in the next paragraph, the author linked a video snippet from the town hall. So I followed the link and watched the couple of minutes of video. Here is what Biden actually said with respect to terrorist groups - that the government needs to: "be able to follow, without violating their 1st amendment rights, to be able to follow what they're doing and follow up on threats that come forward." There was no indication that Christians were to be considered terrorists. His emphasis was on those who threatened others. I'm not suggesting Biden is the right answer. I am suggesting that everyone look at the original sources of comments when possible and make up your own minds. There are a lot of people out there with agendas who will mis-quote and willfully misconstrue to sway people thinking. Johne is right on in his post above: "It would be good for all of us here to pray, take a deep breath, and recognize that bad actors from both sides (from many sides!) are trying to whip Christians into a frenzy. It would be good if we didn't fall for that."
  3. Happy Birthday, Lynn. And thanks for all you do for us on this forum.
  4. Sarah, You can certainly send a copy of your book to beta reader via email as Zee suggests, but you can also use Google docs to upload a version that you can then point a beta reader to. The advantage of the google.doc route is you can put some controls on the document so the beta reader(s) can comment, but they can't download your document. So it is a little more secure - they don't get a complete copy of your work. I'm sure piracy would not be an issue for any of the regulars on this site, but if you have outside beta readers it might be safer.
  5. I'm really sorry to hear of your data crash. I think most of us have been there to one extent or another. But, I suspect, given that you feel you have made many positive edits in the rewrite, you will find when you do recreate the scene it will be better than the original. You did it once and that is still in you (or in your muse); plus you have grown as a writer since then. Good luck.
  6. Excellent work, Zee, thank you. Now all I have to do is finish my book...
  7. Happy Birthday. Hope you are having a great one!
  8. Johne, If I promise not to tell the other seven, who would be your recommendation among the editors you know on the list to line edit/copy edit a middle grade and up, fantasy novel? I am close to ready for an edit of my WIP.
  9. Sarah, Call your book, Not That Heidi. 😀
  10. Happy Birthday, Accord. May we now call you Accord65? 🚗
  11. Yeah, Accord64, but what do you do if a band of chimpanzees shows up and does the musical?
  12. Suspensewriter, you are truly an inspiration to me. From the first time I experienced your wit and wisdom on this site, through your stroke and your remarkable return to us here, I have admired your contributions. I have had nothing like your challenges and I barely have 2 stories finished. 😀 Congratulations, your novels are now of legal age (at least in some places). Someone should write your story (if you haven't already done so).
  13. Rebecca, I've been off site for a bit, but I hope you had a great birthday. And Happy Birthday next March 21st, just so I'm not late for that one. 😀
  14. Rasman, thanks for the comments. I wasn't completely clear in that the characters in each case of the dungeons are different, so your "recall" comment doesn't quite apply. But, it turns out they do get out in a very different way, so I did have fun with that.
  15. Congrats @EBraten, very nice looking cover. Bad news though, someone else put their name as author on your book 😉
