  1. COUNTDOWN DAY 2: Who do you write like?

    So I did this ages ago and depending on the story that I put in I got a wide gambit of results. Now when I do it most everything consistently comes up Agatha Christie and that makes me quite giddy, to be honest.
  2. COUNTDOWN DAY 4: Nano Playlists

    Pandora is a godsend and for the past several years NaNo starts as it will this year with Halloween Party Radio. This will last me a week at least. From there I pick the music that pleases the Dragon muse the most and that typically is either my AC/DC rock station, or I'll switch over to my YouTube Asian Pop playlist, sometimes the Dragon demands Darker and that is what Skillet station is for. As an aside, I will occasionally write with the song Acapella by Karmin playing on loop. The steady beat just helps to keep the fingers moving sometimes.

  4. Site Suggestions and Feedback

    Hey idea that bubbled in a chat that I thought I'd put out for all. Is it possible for us to have a "To read list" Like a way to mark a story and 'need to read'? That would be really nice. If not could we maybe have a small corner of the forum of it?

  6. Book Recommendations

    Title: Ready Player One Author: Ernest Cline Genre: Sci-fi/dystopian Year Published: 2011 Summary: Welcome to the OASIS, a hyper-realistic, 3D, video game paradise. It's 2045, and pretty much everyone logs into the OASIS daily to escape their terrible lives, lives affected by overpopulation, unemployment, and energy shortages. Eighteen-year-old Wade Watts is one of these people, and he has a mission: to find an Easter egg hidden inside the OASIS by its wackadoodle creator, James Halliday.* Why You're Recommending It: This book is AMAZING, if you are a sci-fi geek you will be sure to recognize something from the book. If you remember or know anything of the 80's you will recognize a lot in the book. The easter egg hunt set forth by James Halliday requires one to be familiar with the pop-culture of the 80's. You follow Wade in his hunt for the eggs, his fight for survival, as a corporation is after the eggs as well, to make a profit. The corporation will stop at nothing, including murder. to get what they want. The geekery, the 80's, and the action all combine for a really amazing and fun read! That I would recommend to any geek out there! Also, a movie is soon to come out, and you know the books are 99% of the time better. So, you wanna read the book before seeing the movie! Oh, and if this adds an incentive to the fact that the book is awesome, the audio version is narrated by Will Wheaton. *Summary borrowed from shmoop.com

  8. Hey! I just wanted to ask whether you have any suggestions for the quote for Babylon 5 when I add the tag on the archive. ^_^

      Is this too long?  "The Babylon Project was a dream given form. Its goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of call – home away from home – for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers. It's our last best hope."

      Hmm. Is there any part that sticks out to you? It might be a tad long like that.

      "It's a port of call - home away from home.  It's our last best hope."

      If it can be longer than above but needs to be shorter than the first.

      "A dream, given form: where humans and aliens can work their differences peacefully, a port of call - home away from home. It's our last best hope."
