    All of you are AMAZING!

    I love having you all here and seeing your posts.

    I want you to know I read everything you post.

    This may not be possible as we grow, but until we get so big I need to bring on help, I am staying up on everything you post!

    I am starting weekly challenges. These challenges are for all members at all levels.

    The goal of the challenges are for members to find ways to make the site work for them instead of working for the group.

    Last week's challenge was blog: Either create a blog post or comment on the blog.

    This week's challenge:
    Every member here invite five friends to join this site!
    Give them one solid reason why this site has the potential to do great things for authors, readers and author supporters!

    Thomas Weaver Questions for anyone who happens to see this: How much of a problem is it for you as a reader when you see "headhopping" (viewpoint switching between characters within a scene, usually without even a transition) in a story? Do you overlook...  more

      Danielle Ross Drives me insane. If I can't keep track of who's POV I'm in, it breaks me out of the story, and it makes it harder for me to read.

      Lucinda Moebius I can't follow the story so I usually give up and stop reading.

    Lucinda Moebius Beginning of the school year and taking on a new job has killed my writing schedule. Hoping to get back to my 1.000 a day word count this week!

    I'm sorry I've been absent from this site (and FB, and a lot of places) lately. Anyone who remembers the variety show with the tuxedo guy spinning multiple plates can sympathize. Some plates always fall and, for me, it was book...  more

    Lucinda Moebius Ok my friends. I have tried making this offer on FB and I have had no responses. I really need to get some reviews on Amazon for my book Hunter. It is a Vampire Hunter book.

    Thomas Weaver Has anyone else seen this: http://www.hackerfactor.com/GenderGuesser.php#Analyze ? (It's a computer program that's supposedly able to determine an author's gender based on writing style, word choice, etc.) Have you TRIED it? What did you think of the...  more

      Lucinda Moebius I've never heard of it. I have seen one that compares your writing style to other famous authors.

      Lucinda Moebius I just tried it on two of my pieces. The verdict for both was I am a male writer. While in one area it said I was weak, female.
      The interesting part is in one piece of writing the main character was male and in the other the main character was female.
    • Thomas Weaver
      Thomas Weaver The "I Write Like..." thing is overly simplistic, and I doubt it was ever meant to be taken as seriously as some people do/did. If the difference from merely changing the viewpoint character's name can change the result from "Stephenie Meyer" to "Cory...  more

      Amy Lehman Hi Merri. I am not as active on here either. I have been busy with getting my manuscript, query and synopsis ready for the query process. I am going to try to be better about stopping by as well.
