Topic Do you get pleasure from reading your own writing?
Posted 19 Dec 2012 05:31

This is a good question.

I certainly do enjoy reading my own work. Especially after some time has passed.
The more I cringe at the "not so good parts", the more I eventually learn.

Topic My first ever newspaper interview mentions a very famous story site...
Posted 23 Sep 2012 04:11

Congrats, DD. We're all soooooo proud of you. An interview like that is always a plus and, in your case, to have it appear somewhere other than the 'crime' section is very positive. :)

Nice work Jankowski. JFK, huh!

Topic What do you think about erotica writing?
Posted 26 Jul 2012 05:41

I choose the sexual fantasy genre because I have several fantasies that drive me wild and I figured; if they are driving me wild, hopefully
even a poorly written fantasy would drive all the sex crazed people out there wild as well. As long as I used clever cuss words and picked some sexy
characters names.
I thought; If my audience is half the pervert (pardon my choice of words) that I am, they would over look my poor grammar and just get caught up in my little sex crazed mind.
Boy did I learn a fast lesson.
I never even thought of describing my work as erotica, it was pure porn. I love writing on occasions, and in the erotica field, there is always something to talk about.

I think erotica is a great starting point for many writers, but only a select few have the talent needed to survive.
In most cases; in order to obtain that ever elusive "serious writer" status. Most must move on to the things we really wanted to write about in the first place.
All just my opinion.

Topic What Would Your "Thing" Be?
Posted 28 Jun 2012 02:18

I guess I would have to agree with several people above, like having my computer with me, as I write all my stories on it. However, I do write my poetry with pen and paper, then transfer it to the computer when I am satisfied with it. One comment that I don't agree with is the one about being awake. A number of stories and poems I have written, and which are the ones that come the most easily are the ones that I wake up with already fairly formed in my head. So I guess my "thing" would be to wake up with a new story in my head every few days.

How long would you be awake after you post these stories,

every few days?

Topic Goes into a bar
Posted 01 Jun 2012 18:12

A duck goes into a bar, takes a stool, and the bartender says; What will you have little ducky?
The duck says; got any grapes? Bartender says; No duck, this is a bar, we serve beer, mixed drinks, that sorta thing. We don't have grapes. So the duck leaves.

Next day the duck comes back and the bartender says; What will it be duck? Got any grapes? Says the duck.
The bartender screams No duck head, I told you yesterday; we have no grapes, we sell beer and stuff.
If you come in here tomorrow asking for grapes, I'm gonna nail your little webbed feet to the floor.

The next day the duck sits and the bartender ask him; What will you have Daffy?
The duck ask: got any nails? The bartender near blows a gasket and yells "No"
So the duck says: got any grapes?

Topic Why Do You Write?
Posted 31 May 2012 02:58

Hey thanks DM,

But writing a story merely to get an Editors Pick seems a bit,,, well challenging.
As far as a golden star, I now think I'd like to have a silver one, or blue.

I agree with Bad Company on this one, Give me silver,, blue and gold...

To be honest though,
I think my best quality would be; making excuses.
I should of been a hired "excuse maker" for rent

Topic What Would Your "Thing" Be?
Posted 19 May 2012 04:08

I don't have a particular object or need to have coffee at hand, but I do need to have peace and quiet so I can write without being interrupted. So perhaps a closed door with a "Do Not Disturb" sign on it would be the "thing" I need.

I have to second this one gypsy.
I have a similar problem. I like to call her my wife.
Although she understands my addiction to writing, I swear she must be a bit jealous.

I'd like to add "time" to the equation.
I could have all the peace and quite in the world, but put a dead line on me and I turn to mush.

That's my things.

Topic Got a book out? Big deal, so does everyone these days...get it reviewed...:)

Thanks DM,
I signed up for class, bought a two year membership and everything.
I'm gonna play hooky on my first day though...(:

Hi VanessaFinaughty,

I envy your talents and determination.
How ever, I don't envy the task of trying to keep writers from annoying editors and their readers.
By all means, please keep up the fine work though,
it's one of those jobs that some one has to do.

More power to both of you.

Too funny Alan. I swear, some folks have way too much time on their hands when they think of stuff like this.
I'm glad they work so hard at it though.

I'm confused again though Al, I don't get #5 ?

I haven't written anything in a while. I'll have to do something about that.

I've added you to the critique groups so they should appear for you now. It'd be good to see you in there. :)

Topic Would you like more constructive criticism on your work?
Posted 07 Apr 2012 04:02

I'm guilty of giving too much praise at times. Especially if I don't know the writer.
Many writers misinterpret criticism.
I would much rather encourage a writer.

If I do criticise or give extreme praise, I try to do it privately.
