Great topics above. We can handle them next week if need be.

Also a good topic when we have people around - when September hits we'll be going back to Fall Chat time (whatever that might be). Wednesdays are summer schedule. We try to mix it up so that different members can come. Looking for suggestions on days / times for the fall.

Um... we could talk about being careful using pics on your blog that you don't own?

We definitely could. Are others interested in discussing?

There were a few thoughts in the chatroom last night. Querying in general, more about editing (we've done recently, but maybe a new twist?), dealing with rejection ...

Maybe an overall combatting depression theme including "Dealing with those negative or outright hurtful book reviews-and how to live with them"
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Revo - we kind of covered dealing with negative reviews in the chat two weeks ago, but I think dealing with negativity (our own and other's) would be a good topic.

ok, time for my weekly borderline dumb idea:

Flash fiction: Does it hone skills, utilize important aspects to be applied to your MS, or is it just glorified, ego-feeding goofing off?

Alternate: FB pages for writers, why they should be separated from the family/friends page

Alternate #2: Exchanging MS's with people you don't know that well; the perils and the perks

I always feel awkward when I come into the Wed. chat. I don't know why, but I feel horribly out of place, so haven't participated in a while.

Cat names: we got our first cat when I was in high school. I was (and still am) a HUGE Trekkie (STTNG) and wanted to name the cat Data. Mom disagreed, so we settled on 8Ball (anyone wanna guess where my username is from?). Then, I got my own cat and he's called Hamlet (he's my fur kid). I almost had a second cat named Macbeth, but he died before I got to bring him home =(.

Most girls are made of
sugar and spice and everything nice; they
screwed up the recipe for me: I'm made of
bat wings and broken things.

Chat is out of commission for the time being, all. It's always been a tech problem (I'm sure most of you have suffered through scrolling issues and double posts) so the bugs are currently being worked out. We'll let you know when we're closer to a fix!

RC and I are looking to get a feel on how when we want to continue running the "official" chat nights (complete with CAPS moderator and a topic ahead of time). Right now we're doing Wed at 9 PM EST

Is there another night and time that would work better for others? We like to shift it around occasionally to allow all members to participate in chat as their schedules allow. We've been doing Wed. evenings for the past three months. Any shift change suggestions?

(also would love a topic suggestion for this week)

My suggestions were made (see above). Wednesday or Thursday work for me, but a Friday or Saturday at a later time might appeal more to the left coasters and still include the easterners.

  • Publishing Experience:My work first appeared in Divine Dirt Quarterly and Oysters&Chocolate. Sadly, these are both out of print now. Most recently, my short stories have appeared in two anthologies (The Spring and The Fall) from Elephant's Bookshelf Press. I have self published one novel and a short story collection.

Posted 03 September 2012 - 02:46 PM

I'll probably be more sporadic at chats now that I'm working full time (meaning getting up at 4:30 EVERY. MORNING. lol) So unless by some miracle people want to do official chats on a friday or saturday night, I'll probably be heading to bed around the same time chat begins each week. :-(
