      Thank you, Meteoraguy, for making a good story and thanks for the support you've given me, too. Write on, friend. Sincerely, Wile

    2. Re: What have you learned from advertising?

      Okay, so I wanted to thank everyone on this forum for helping me out and say that due to your help, I visited Shutterstock one last time and made an altogether different cover and ad.  By the time you (...)

    3. Re: The Fantasy Tavern

      Who you calling 'poorly enacted medieval banter'? If it weren't for your witty compliments/insults I'd kick you out! The tavern is whatever each person needs it to be. True, indeed.  Before such (...)

      I shalt recommend you attain a jar of soul juice.  It contains quite a fine zest.

      'Tis a jolly good show with wit, soul drinks, and poorly enacted medieval banter. :FancyDrakan:

    6. Re: What have you learned from advertising?

      Oh yeah, I actually don't have banner ads.  I did the rectangular ones, but from what I read, banner blindness is just a phenomenon of looking over general ads, whether consciously or not. It does stink (...)

    7. Re: What have you learned from advertising?

      Huh, that's interesting.  Not everyone was blind, but for the Oderria book, this could be more of the case.

    9. Re: What program do you write in?

      I use Google Docs as it is easy to use, free, and most importantly, its autosave actually works (unlike Microsoft Word).  The problem is, at over 80k words for one fiction, it has gotten laggy.  There (...)

    10. Re: What have you learned from advertising?

      Hello writers, so I found out something interesting.  Now, I have already advertised my A City of One story, and with only half of my ads used to this date, I got the fanbase I wanted.  However, when I (...)

    13. Re: New Cover, What do You Think?

      Hello all, after much searching through Shutterstock and hours upon hours of alterations and additions from yours truly, I finally have a new (temporary) cover for Oderria's Last Light and the Counterfeit. (...)

    14. Re: The Fantasy Tavern

      Compliments?  Why, roses art maroon, violets art navy blue, and thou art... a fellow writer?  Oh, no, this must truly be an insult.  I am acquainted with a writing fellow known as Wile.  He wast a deranged, (...)

    15. Re: Does a writer have to be popular to be good?

      Allanther, I have a simple counter for this.  Addressing your point on memorability, what's memorable to one person may not be memorable to another.  It's based entirely on personal preference, hence it (...)

    16. Re: Does a writer have to be popular to be good?

      Allanther, I like you playing devil's advocate.  It certainly leads to an interesting discussion. You're right about the factors I listed.  They are not perfect, but they get a decent scope.  On the (...)

    17. Re: Does a writer have to be popular to be good?

      I would say "good" is decided by character, style, story, and legibility.  I would not necessarily say it is decided by popularity for three reasons.  First, a story can deal with a difficult topic/a topic (...)

      You are correct, tolls are allowed in the room.

    19. Re: Quick Chess Game.

      Okay, I'll make my move now... with my rules.  I summon blue eyes white dragon, and then I'm going to take my Uno reverse card and give a sweet checkmate. :DrakanThink: Me'z berry smrt.

    20. Re: Opinions on Present Tense

      I love the present tense.  It's definitely not for everyone, but it can give urgency and it's just unique.  For me personally, it makes flashbacks work much better than they would in another tense. (...)
