Topic: When is a story 'finished'?
Posted: 03 Dec 2016 06:46

As someone once told me "Your writing is finished only when you are totally fed up with it."

Topic: Question for authors ...
Posted: 03 Dec 2016 06:36

I write fiction all under one pen name, but my non-fiction is technical and written under my 'real' name. The problem with that was persuading the bank to open an account under my pseudonym so that I could bank royalties separately from normal income.

Topic: Is equality such a difficult concept to grasp?
Posted: 01 Dec 2016 08:34

The idea of equality meaning the same laws apply to me and you and everyone else . . . this makes perfect sense and is entirely plausible.

No, it neither makes perfect sense nor is plausible with the self-contradictory laws we now have.

In Europe age discrimination is illegal, yet it is apparently OK to have different rules for different ages in many fields, driver's licence is the most obvious, or buying booze.

In the UK discrimination on religious beliefs held is illegal, but the courts have ruled that a lifelong honestly held Christian belief that sex is for one man and one woman who are married is now to be over-ruled by the honestly held lifelong belief that two men may indulge in sex in private wherever they wish, even in a hotel room owned and rented out by holders of the first belief. Clearly these two positions are incompatible, but the older, less noisily pursued view has had to give way.

The Roman Catholic church has had to close its adoption schemes because it refused to allow adoption by unmarried couples, on pain of being forced to hand children over to such couples or pay them compensation.

Another aspect of this is that all should have equal opportunities in education. That does not mean that mixed-ability teaching works, anymore than a mixed ability sports team would. It does not even mean that co-ed schooling works better than same-sex schools. It has been shown, in the UK at least, that girls do better when educated in an all-girls school, but anyone who says this will be shouted down by the "equalists".

The answer to the question is " Yes , equality is a difficult concept to apply ".

Topic: Where do you write and save the drafts?
Posted: 01 Dec 2016 07:07

Maybe this sounds paranoid but I save two copies on separate external drives attached to my own desktop, both password protected.

I wouldn't use the cloud, or any internet site's facilities for work in progress because you have NO guarantee that other people can't read your work. Furthermore you have no control (or even knowledge) over where any of that is stored as back-ups.

It isn't that I have had a bad experience, but until I retired my job was computer security, and I know how much power I had to access other people's work. I know that “XYZ Inc.” are a reputable company and only hire trusted people, but in my forensic work I saw so many crooks ...

Topic: Sprite's Pet Peeves - writers should check this out before submitting stories - it's just go
Posted: 29 Nov 2016 05:52

Good job here, sprite.

Might I add:
Then and than, too and to, there is a difference.
Be careful with breath and breathe.
To make a word plural do not use 's; it's either s, es, or ies. (stories not story's; 's refers to possession)
Read your story out loud to someone. Their ears or yours will likely pick up some issues.

I actually take the 'laundry listing' ban a little further, (though I call it 'forensic pathologist's report') in my thirteen published novels about Kobekistan the main character, the Emir, has only one reference to his physical appearance, and that is that he is not so tall as his principal bodyguard, but Maktum is also described as almost seven feet tall, so that does not give too much away. The reader will always see someone in their mind's eye and that image will always be exactly right for them . I do describe clothing, however.

As to reading aloud, there are products on the market which will read your work aloud automatically. Microsoft had a product which read .lit format aloud to you, but I don't know if it is still available. A word of caution though, some technical terms can be mispronounced - as JKR found out when Hermione was pronounced Her-my-one.

Agree a safe word.

Then gag the slave.

Then say, "You can use the safe word any time you want me to stop."

Nobody Planned It

The problem with a Christmas Party for a company that works deep in the defence industry is that there are few personal contacts between employees in different parts of the organisation. It is clearly illegal to discuss one’s work with anyone not assigned to your particular project, so each Section tends to socialise as a group and don’t really get to know people from other sections. This...

Bedroom Antics

Chapter the First In which businesses prosper, families meet and a marriage is arranged, but no improprieties occur. It was a large house, set in a small park, but it could never look like a house of the gentility. It shouted aloud to anyone of sensibility, in this year of our Lord eighteen-fifty, that this was the home of a tradesman. A very rich tradesman, it must be admitted, but not...
