Just so thrilled Larry's awesomeness has been flagged up! Nice one, Rach. :)

So whatever Larry likes from the bar is on me, and I might as well fork out for you horrible lot too then. *starts to count through small change* ;)

Coffee for me, good barkeep!

Welcome Jenny!

I'll read your story ASAP. The folk here are sick of hearing about my ongoing lack-of-computer saga!

Hannah your new avatar is most elegant! <3 Not at all at odds with your terrifying threats, I mean encouragement for comp entries. *runs*

Beer please, bar keep. It might be my last.... ;)

I was just catching up with everyone's news and popping on to wish everyone a Happy New Year, then I saw Hannah's post and nearly ran for my life. Especially as I'm not on The List so far. Not that having no computer at the mo would be seen as an adequate excuse... ;)

I've told you before, pressing 'capslock' takes it back off again too evil4

I assume you found someone to deal with them? If not, I could be enticed with the right ... payment. evil4

Thanks Scott and Jen - I think! evil4

No, not sorted yet (despite pressing Caps Lock repeatedly)

And at this point, I'd pay *almost* anything!! help

Annnnnd it's up. hello1 (see sig)

Thanks to my favorite mod (for today, at least), the lovely curvygalore. I owe her a drink, Rump, but if I'm over on my bill, just slip it onto Jeff's.evil4

I'd ask for champagne but the last time I drank champagne here, I woke up to find I had written an underaged non-consensual mind controlled incest story.confused1 So I'll settle for a rum and coke.

Glad I'm your fleeting fave, Scott! drunken

Snowing here, so just a cuppa for me. Shouldn't add too much to anyone's tab... evil4

Topic What's your favorite Christmas movie?
Posted 07 Dec 2017 15:03

I love It's A Wonderful Life. It is perfection. It is beautiful. It is unsung heroness. It is beautiful and I love the actors and Zuzu's petals and the ending. Oh the ending!! crybaby

I couldn't agree more, Hannah. It's A Wonderful Life is sheer perfection

Mind you, Scott and V have a point about Die Hard. Not only Brucie's creative swearing and heroics in a vest but also the peerless Alan Rickman giving an acting lesson on how to play a bad guy with elegant panache and a consistent accent.

another good way to get lots of votes/comments is to change your name to Sprlte and simply threaten people with imminent destruction unless they leave something for you. drunken

Topic feedback from readers
Posted 05 Dec 2017 09:22

Thanks for your replies. From what seeker4 and Buz say this is a pretty normal level of feedback so I guess I shouldn’t take it as any reflection on my story.
Rumpleforeskins advice is a little surprising to me ( and seems to contradict the other 2 ). Is getting feedback on a story really dependant on making lots of forum posts ? Surely writing stories and taking part in forum discussions are 2 completely different things .
The tip about adding a link to the story when I post on a forum discussion might be useful however. Although I can see that it may get more people reading it, will it get a higher proportion of people giving feedback ? Anyway your replies are appreciated.

Hi Rob, just to clarify, Rumples' advice is very similar to that of Buz's and Seeker's, in that self-promotion really helps. Seeker was talking about one kind of self-promotion in terms of posting, and Rumpleforeskin was suggesting a more social kind.

So, what Seeker was suggesting is the excellent idea of posting in Self-Promotion and Marketing sections of the forum. Perhaps our Rumps was being over-modest, but a lot of authors hang out at Rumplations cyber bar in The Pub section of the Forum. Mingling over there and posting a link when you have a new story is encouraged, and authors here are very generous towards each other in terms of reading and commenting. So he wasn't just suggesting random forum posts!

Does that clarify things a little? :)

Topic Is it normal for a story to "get away" from the writer's planned outline, and sort of write itself?

I suppose after bringing up two daughters, I should have expected this with characters in the stories, they seem to act kind of the same.

This really made me laugh! Why are all our creations (both real and imaginative) so wretchedly independent? Blast 'em! dontknow
