Ever notice this?

Have you ever noticed that when you tell someone about a story or book you're writing that they almost always automatically ask, "So, what's it about?" This is a natural question, of course, but it's the answer to that question that piques my interest.
If what I'm talking about is not of my own creation, I can easily decribe it, but whenever I try to tell what my own book is about, I always have to go back in order to explain something. For example:

Hope for the future

Posted 1st July 2010 at 08:20 AM by Ronanida

As an aspiring novelist and a bit of a perfectionist, I have been working on my novel, Tal'mokor Chronicles, for over three years. I have literally forced my friends to read it over and over again, begged my literature teachers to do the same, and they all give me good feedback. But I want something more, a stronger assurance that I am on the right track.
Here, on this forum, I hope to hear criticism that is unbiased by any relationship to me. Here, I hope to meet others like myself and perfect...

New projects

Posted 29th June 2010 at 04:02 PM by Talysia

About this time last year, my sister asked me to make the centrepiece for her wedding cake. She wanted the little bride and groom figures, in full wedding garb, sitting on my now-brother in law's motorbike. That was a challenge!

After some sketches and a lot of time studying photos of the bike, I was able to make a little model out of air-drying clay, complete with figures (and "just married" on the number plate), painted it, and it went down really well. Looking back,...

Things go slow...

They always do, in summer. For a few days I got a decent boost from AltFiction (authorised geekiness! I was almost literally bouncing off the walls! And excellent to meet some Chronites at last!) and I veered back to the Curse, hoping to make some serious headway on that for the first time this year. But, two weeks and barely two thousand words later, I'm remembering why it was such hard work in the first place.

It's the Voice. Not quite as flowery as Janny Wurts, but still waxing...

My Dvorak Duvet

Posted 25th June 2010 at 01:41 AM by Lenny (Lenny, Ineffably So...)

I sit before you, wrapped in my duvet (sporting a lovely maroon cover that goes particularly well with my green bedsheet, red curtain and yellowing walls) as Dvorak's Sixth keeps me company like an old, comforting duvet (the one I'm physically wrapped in his been with me since I escaped the cot! As has my primary pillow - also attired in maroon).

Ah, the Sixth has bowed out and the Seventh has sidled in.

Literature Surveys are so dull! If it were real literature, then...
