This is not where you submit your published WebLit samples to AntholoZine - that thread would be here.
We're gonna need these ready soon, editing and layout's gonna have to get done before mid-December and November is NaNoWriMo! Anybody got any ideas for these? I'm considering writing an article about Visual Novels to help introduce both readers and writers to that neat little world of reading and writing.
I'll just go ahead and make a submissions thread for these.
I guess this goes here?
A new "social network" has been formed with the aim of being a nexus or "umbrella" to tie together the various strands of the "eWriting" community.
Originally conceived because the existing writing websites don't have sections for online literature and such, New Media Network is hoping to become a resource and connector for those who write for these new forms of expression.
What the title says. We have not only our own skills and those we can borrow from each other, but our wonderful kin and kine. How can we best exploit them?
~Lyn, shamelessly using her friends.
What can we take from traditional publishing? What can we leave behind?
@AmandaPalmer does music, yes, but that's another big industry that's taking a huge hit from the onset of the digital apocalypse. You may have heard that she's found a lot of ways to make money that doesn't involve making her label (and not herself) millions of dollars. She's done a lot of special promos on Twitter and such and sold tshirts and run auctions and basically found more and more ways to convince her fandom to give her money just because she's Amanda Palmer.
I guess I'll take the dubious honour of writing the first tale of woe.
I have a readership that's dropping (this month compared to last) for the first time in the seven months I've been posting. It's not dropping hugely, just a percentage point or two, but because it's the first time after solid growth, it's freaking me out. I'm afraid it won't start growing again and will just never get to what I need it to be to stay serious about this.
Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do about it? Any suggestions? Am I freaking out over nothing?
I admit that Melissa is a good friend of mine--she was my roommate for three years in college--but that's how I know how talented she is! She double majored in art and theater and is very talented in both areas. She is a weblit reader (she introduced me to it by linking me to ToMU!) and would love to do voice acting for podcasts. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org, and do check out her website to view her art.
It has come to the attention of several of us that Andy Fanton, writer of Lord Likely and general top-hatted man about town, is in need of some assistance. Times are hard for all of us, but especially right now for Andy. If you can throw a few quid in the top hat, you're throwing bread upon the waters; some day it'll come back to you. It has to me. See the giant blue box on the top of the page, and if you can, post it on your own site.
