I think this applies for serials, novellas, novels and shorts.
How do you feel about character death?
For me, I don't like character deaths where they are plain senseless. For me, character deaths add to the tragedy/sadness/pathos. I don't like doing it - but sometimes, it's an essential plot device/tool.
Called perhaps the greatest writer of the post World War II generation, he died after living as a recluse for fifty years. As writers, no matter the stripe, if you were a fan or never touched a word of his, it's a moment to acknowledge.
"We're freaks, that's all. Those two bastards got us nice and early and made us into freaks with freakish standards, that's all. We're the tattooed lady, and we're never going to have a minute's peace, the rest of our lives, until everybody else is tattooed, too." -- Franny and Zooey
Having some difficulty with my home email, so anyone who has emailed me, I apologize for the delay in replying. So, Mei, I will get back to you, I promise. Also, I'll be reorganizing my web blog a bit, as things will become better... organized. >.>
All Black Mask and Pale Rider adventures, plus related tales will be under BM&PR. This will also include the cast of characters short description.

So... when I go directly to Weblit.us by typing the URL into my browser address bar, I arrive at the site already logged in. However, when I'm on another DigitalNovelists site and go to Weblit.us by selecting it from the DN dropdown list, I arrive at the site as a guest, not logged in.
Is there anything I can do so that Weblit.us remembers me even when I'm coming in thru the DN bar, or is it just One of Those Things and I really should learn to remember my password? Has anyone else noticed this quirk?
I know that several of us are UK residents, so what about a UK meet-up at some point in the next few months?
So, as alluded to in this topic, I'm up to my eyeballs in poetry. I currently have 18 more acrostics to write, and since I want to get them done in a timely manner, I'm putting most of my creative energies towards that. Add in a site I'm designing for a coworker, no less than three papers I need to critique for friends, my day job, life's typical nuisances and I'm not left with much time to write poetry not related to the chapbook or to work on weblit resources articles.
I'm crossing my fingers here that an introduction isn't really needed, but I'll have a short go at one anyway.
Ergofiction.com is a magazine for webfiction fans. We're still finding our voice a bit, but the main idea is to become a central hub for all things webfiction. Currently we're very much focusing on the basics, but soon it'll get a whole bit sillier.
