    What do one's words, spoken or written, really mean to the receiver?

    I recently wrote some comments down on another thread and the experience got me thinking. What do one's words really mean to another? Why do some people's words, verbal or written, seem very direct and others' words require more careful listening or viewing and more thoughtful interpretation...

    "Twenty Year Review" A short, scaly story.

    I needed to take a break from my novels for a while. Here is my latest short story, to add to my collection. It's 14, 8-1/2 X 11 pages long. So rather than break it up, I decided to attach the PDF (Brief moments of implied sexuality [nothing graphic] and brief moments of violence.) I hope you...

    Some thoughts on arguing the facts, and social media.

    In a classical argument form, to put it simply, the person or group making the claim must also take on the burden of providing proof of that claim. Here's an exaggerated example of an argument, face-to-face: At a party, Jim Slim claims that he owns a 1964 Cadillac. Sandy Clipswitch decides to...

    Looking to hire an artist for illustration work in my next novel. $500 set aside.

    Once again, I am looking for an artist. I would like to commission a full color, two character illustration for my next book cover; a detailed background is an option. I'm also considering having some black and white illustrations made as well. Edit: My tastes tend to lean toward realistic or...

    If it pays the same. . .

    The answer's easy, if hard to quantify. Give me a plausible answer and ask your own either/or question; beginning with, "If it pays the same, which is better?" Its easy to go low; aim higher: If it pays the same, which is better? Feeling brilliant 80% of the time, while being brilliant 20% of...

    Taking a break from the forums.

    Though I have learned a lot here on this forum, and have met a number of likeable folks here as well, I feel that I'm spending too much time away from other things like my writing. Taking a break from here and a couple of other forums, for an indefinite period. I'll drop by once or twice to pull...

    Things instead of boredom

    Not a recent thought, but a recurring one: People claim to be bored and I don't get it. So I decided to start a thread with this question? What did you do or experience today, instead of being bored? Let's see; cleaned the kitchen, took a soak in the hot tub, finished up some work on the...

    Just something I picked up a while back, from the author...Otternot 1

    the author's page On my last trip down Arizona way, I briefly met another author; selling his book on the big steps in the center of Jerome. I was in a hurry, as I was in a car with friends and they wanted to get home. I got out, we exchanged a few words and exchanged our novels. I have since...

    Reviews, what do they really mean in today's market?

    Just a heads-up for those who may be following the same path: I published my first work through BookBaby. I'm satisfied with what I have received from them in return for my money. A while back, BookBaby sent me a promo offer from a company called Readers' Favorite. In a cooperative arrangement...

    Questions involving current sales practices, not art/furry specific

    Is this becoming a new trend that I need to take into consideration when conducting a sale? Case in point; a small sale, 1or 2 books. The setting, a strip mall store in the Seattle metropolitan area: I enter a business and proceed with my transaction. There are no other customers in the store...

    Referring to reference sheets...

    Genuinely curious. Character reference sheets seem to be a big part of what is discussed here on this forum. Back during the pre-computer dark ages, when RP games were played using imagination, paper, pencils and dice, I used reference sheets for characters. I understand their function in this...

    I'm older than most here on this site. I have seen, and experienced, quite a lot over these many years. Here is one observation concerning current human behavior: Disclaimer: I fully understand that there is evil in the world and that the truly innocent can become victims of many crimes. Let us...

    Another teaser from book two...fresh from today's writing.

    First draft of a new chapter. Still fleshing out the next two books in the series. This came to me today, for book two: ...The prey was below them again; running for its life. Joy had missed her opportunity twice now, and Tonsrit was getting impatient. His blood lust had taken over and he...
