Random Quote
The power of the priesthood lies in the submission to a creed. In their onslaughts on rebellion they have exhausted human torments; nor, in their lust for earthly dominion, have they felt remorse, but rather joy, when slaying Christ's enemies and their own. [Brooks Adams, The Emancipation of Massachusetts]

2. Fanfiction Writers Turning Pro? National Novel Writing Month
I couldn't think of another forum to post this in! Hope it's okay. This has been on my mind a lot this year. Do you think being a fanfiction writer helps or hurts you in that

3. TURNING 60?
Freelance writer about to turn 60, inviting those who have or are about to enter the same decade to share their thoughts and wisdom learned over the past years.
TURNING 60? An Invitation to Share Your Story ~~~~~~~~~~WHAT WOULD YOUR STORY TELL?~~~~~~~~~~
What do YOU believe is important now that you are at or approaching this milestone? I invite you to simply think about how it feels to be where you are today and what you have gone through to get here. Ask yourself what is important - what are the lessons learned that you would like to pass along to someone else? Would you put this collective knowlege in the form of a letter or a short story?
I wish I could claim this quote, but some anonymous person beat me to it!
Now that I think about it, with my 60th birthday a little over a year away, my life does seem to resemble a bunch of short stories. But if I put them all together - these mini novels that show me evolving, learning, and growing more comfortable with my Real Self over the past decades - would they make for a good read? In retrospect, would my stories help me figure out why I am the way I am today at age 58 and counting? Would they help others understand why I did what I did along the way when I was still blazing a path toward my own maturity?
Aging is not something we usually look forward to yet how many times has it been said that going back to our 20s or 30s wouldn’t be so bad as long as we could take along what we have already learned? This is where those little novellas of ours might come into the picture, don't you agree? Each one would account for life’s lessons - the stuff we would like to “take with us” should we have the opportunity to go back and do it all over again.

    Squick and squee
    Posted by Teresa at 12:03 AM * 279 comments Ellen Fremedon, in her Live Journal Cenelice to ganganne hwaer gegan hafde naenig man aer , gets right in there and wrestles with the embarrassingly shameless heart of storytelling; also good fanwriting, bad prowriting, and what she calls the Id Vortex. (And where are my manners? Belatedly: Thank you, Debra Doyle, for the original link.) Further thoughts next morning: Handling that material is a real issue for a lot of writers. Few of the strategies they use for dealing with it are wholly satisfactory. F.I., DIY One of the things you see most often is the narrative collapsing into formulaic language.

    The South-East Asia Earthquake Please help. This is dreadful beyond words. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the entire island of Sumatra was moved 100 feet to the southwest. In the lightly populated Andaman and Nicobar islands alone, there are three thousand confirmed dead, 30,000 missing, 15 villages still under water, and several islands nobody can raise on the radio. The extent of the damage around the shores of the Indian Ocean is like thousands of miles of 9/11, in some cases stretching miles inland, from Sumatra to Somalia. Children were hit hard. So were the small indigenous fishing fleets, which would have been out doing early-morning fishing when the waves came. This is world-class bad. The South-East Asia Earthquake says: How you can help: 1. Please pass this
