"The book's setting appears to be what some of us call "high entropy." Basically, a *lot* of magic and power and miracles and magic items and gods -- lots of gods! -- all at a very high level of magical energy. This is tricky! It…"

"Grin! If ever you have a *need* of a reader, I'm game. (I've done this for others, including some who have indeed gone on to become published!) But I'm betting you'll never have any problem finding readers among your friends and…"

"My thinking is... I could do this with a project that I wasn't "in love with." It would be something I could approach abstractly and professionally. After all, in the American work-place, we're all well-accustomed to having to do…"

"Follow-up: the subsequent chapter, with D'Molay and Mazu visiting Glaucus, is intriguing! I like the "sunken living room" Glaucus has in his temple! Some people take the notion of an indoor swimming pool seriously! Okay, jokes aside:…"

"I've never worked with a co-writer! How do you subordinate the individual need for expression to the collaborative need for -- well -- collaboration? Does "ego" get in the way? Or is it easy to get past ego and work…"

Hi Jefferson,
welcome to the group! Your are yet another author who has joined our forum!
Why don't you tell us a bit about yourself and the stuff you have written. Ken St. Andre, Paul Brown, Jason Crawley and Randy Lindsey have also written games, scripts and ficton of various types. Hopefully we'll get some of them to give us a bit about themselves as well. (Ken already has)
We're hoping that this can become a place were we can all share tips, ideas and suggestions for how to improve or skills as wordsmiths.
