  1. No. The other forum is called Critique Circle and isn't religiously affiliated at all. As far as how I'm doing, thank you for asking. A bit anxious for it all to be over. The surgery is this thursday. also, I was pretty glad with the relatively even split. In researching this topic, I found that most surveys that were given online were terribly skewed towards democrats for some reason.
  2. 5 Republican, 7 Democrats, 4 Libertarians, and 5 others (two independents, on apolitical, one 'christian' and one undeclared). From what I could tell, most of the Democrats came from the other forum.
  3. Interesting results... though it's only a preliminary finding and should not be read into deeply, requiring much more in-depth study and research.... but democrats scored statistically lower in spirituality measures than all other political affiliations. (Average score of 4 out of 10 compared to other affiliations that averaged 6-7 out of 10). That may not seem like a large difference, however, it is an average. Democrat participants were more likely to list zeros across the questions. (A second writers forum was used as well as this one, so many of democratic participants came from that forum...) - That is NOT to say that Democrats can't be spiritual. It was a correlation study, not cause-effect, so it only measured tendencies... it had a correlation coefficient of 27%, which is a weak correlation effect, however with such a small sample size, that could be either over or under inflated. All that to say... preliminary results of my study suggest that spirituality, or having a personal relationship with God, could be related to the political affiliation we have.
  4. survey complete! Thank you so much for everyone who helped me with it!
  5. Thank you so so so much for everyone who's filled the survey out. Only takes about a minute, if that. Just need 8 more to go. Again, thank you for helping me with this endeavor.
  6. Just posted an urgent request in the job section of the site. For a class, I have to get 20 participants for a survey. Please consider taking a look at it. won't take but a few minutes, if that, to fill it out. I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
  7. Update: The surgery is set for the 1st, next thursday. It will be a two part surgery. They say I'll be in the hospital for 2-3 days but recovery will be between 4-6 months, then they'll have the second part of the surgery after around 6 months after the first. Not sure what it will look like, but with trying to balance two masters classes with it, not sure how much time I'll be able to be on the site for a while.
  8. Update: unfortunately, Oct. 5th is the earliest possible date for surgery. I'm currently home, the meds seem to be helping with the symptoms so far, but still very weak. thank you all so much for your prayers. Please pray that my UC won't put me back in the hospital before the surgery and that things will go smoothly as things progress.
  9. Finally sat down and finalized the edits from this and another forum I'm on, fixing and updating all the critiques graciously given to me so far. I think it may be ready for beta reading now. I have a number of beta readers on it right now, but they are from friends, and not writers themselves, so it's more of an audience read for me. I would love any further help that you are willing to give toward the book. The easiest way for me to share the book would be to share it through google docs, which I would only need your gmail address for. In that format, you would be able to directly message me through the webpage. But if you do not have a gmail account, I can also do a similar sharing method with your general email, but i would be providing you with a URL, privately published website from which to view the manuscript. If you do prefer a different method, please let me know, and I can see if I can't oblige you. I don't have word on my mac, so it can be cumbersome transferring between the systems, but it can be done. I have yet to write a synopsis for the book, but here's a brief attempt: Abirami, orphaned and ostracized, struggles to survive with his adopted family of outcasts. Hiding from the tyrant upon the throne, he quickly finds his past throwing his present into chaos and clouding his future. In this original fantasy adventure, filled with different races that can fly, transform, and even manipulate nature itself, the imagination is inspired and the sky's the limit. I welcome you to come and explore this brand new world in the Adventures of the Last Aygiff.
  10. Update: Out of the hospital today. Since I was only there to get stronger IV meds, and we decided to go ahead with the surgery, it was decided I could just take the pill form of the med at home, which is nice. I hate being in the hospital. Especially when no one can visit. I think it drove my mom madder than me, though. Not sure what surgeon or what the schedule will be, and insurance may be an issue with pre approval, if it's needed, but I hope I can do the surgery this week. Schedule wise, it would probably work best. but won't know anything more until Monday.
  11. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - "Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius."
