  1. Boarders Writing A Novel: Volume 14 A Memory of Civility

    Who is/are the point of view characters in the story? Whose eyes are we seeing the torture? Victim, witness, or torturer? What's the result that will impact the character for the rest of the story? Physical and/or psychological? I'd use that as your guide for how much to show and how.
  2. Wise Man's Fear XI

    So, I looked up Rawn. Books 1 and 2 of Exiles came out 1994 and 1997, with the last of the trilogy still MIA? With 6 other books published in the meantime? Wow. I write, so I get writer's block, self doubt, procrastination, etc. It sucks. I know. I've had version of this manuscript on my computer for more years than I really want to admit. But that's just sad. Different thread, but I'm firmly in the camp where if someone presents a product as being part of a series, they should feel morally (not legally) obligated to fulfill that promise. Things get canceled; that's life. But the dragging out and dangling hope is just unprofessional. Apparently Rawn is working on it. Hope she can finish it, for her own sake as much as for her readers. Feel free to dig this up in the distant future if I'm ever published and am throwing out excuses why book X isn't finished yet. People found my 2008 Hodor prediction/joke, so this post should be as easy to find..
  3. Wise Man's Fear XI

    Rothfuss has chosen the Martin path to missing deadlines. Forever will it dominate his destiny. Someone will pop in with (or already have) "Rothfuss is not your bitch" but I think it's just as stupid to apply here as to Martin.
  4. Deadpool v SkullpoopL: Dawn of Spoilers

    I'm not sure I see Kyle as Cable... Maybe if I see a photo where I can barely see his puny feet and where he's wearing clothes with 37 pockets, then I'll believe it.

    Excellent angle, Leofric. I always liked the Cancer Man from X Files as a descriptor both physically (smoking) and as a character.
  6. ROBOTECH

    Fantastic news! By the way, Amazon Prime (at least in the US) now has all of Robotech available to stream for free.
  7. New D&D movie(s) on the way

    To be honest, starting from scratch avoids the problems Warcraft had. No preference either way, though. I just hope they can figure out how to tell a good story.
  8. It's official. Benedict Cumberbatch is Strange. The Doctor.

    Right!?! Rand: Strange! Dr. Strange! So surreal seeing you here in Greenwich. Remember me? We bumped into each other at the tea house near our respective monasteries. You went on about some out of body experience and I shared this energy thing they're teaching me. Strange: Never seen you before. That would make my unique life experience less so. Wayne: But we said we'd be friends even when we got home. Chandler Jarrell: I, I, Want the knife.... Please....
  9. It's official. Benedict Cumberbatch is Strange. The Doctor.

    I wonder if the Tibetan temple Strange was hanging out in is just across the valley where Iron Fist has been training...
  10. Well, with the Avengers aging, Marvel could introduce X-Men in Phase 4 and let them drive the stories Phase 5 and forward. We're talking nearly 10 years from now.
  11. Harrison Ford to return as Dr. Jones...

    Fountain of Youth + Time Machine = Rebooting Franchise in late 1920's I'm still not sold on Indiana Jones running around with a fedora in the 60's or 70's. The character works so much better pre-WWII.
  12. Infidelity

    It breaks my heart hearing this, Z. I think you're doing the right things and add my small voice to the chorus. Stay strong and see the process through, regardless of the outcome. Trust can be rebuilt, though it takes a long time and the other party has to be doubly committed too, as one sidestep that was within the margin of error before will now break any rebuilt trust. And prayers.
  13. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    Something small, perhaps? Like a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port?
  14. 12 Monkeys

    That has been my assumption for awhile. But then after he was abducted, that feels like the obvious "twist" so I'm hoping it's someone else.
  15. Boarders Writing A Novel: Volume 14 A Memory of Civility

    There are tons of books with time jumps within the same book. Do what the story requires. Just don't feel like you need to info dump the gap events. Treat book two as you should be treating the beginning of book one: in medias res
