If you’re writing about a character, if he’s a powerful character, unless you give him vulnerability I don’t think he’ll be as interesting to the reader.
–STAN LEE, interview, Mar. 13, 2006


Dylan submitted a story to torque press. They refuse to admit his existence.

Ciuin is winning.


From the LA writers group, what’s in it for the critiquer?

An article on agency agreements.


First: A huge thank-you to Dylan for taking over the website from George.

Second: Starting next week, we will be going to 2 critiques a week. This is in response to complaints that we are hitting high word counts some weeks and low critique requests for the last scheduling session. After a couple sessions at this pace, we will reevaluate and decide how to tweak the system. Maybe we need to go back to three and set a lower, definite maximum?
