Re: Writing Status

3dsad    Sad news for us, but all that one can do is what one can do. Good luck in your life. Hope it gets better soon. It's been very quiet  for a while around here.

Re: Writing Status

I first found CAMP on Usenet.  While your writing has definitely improved over the years, I think it is easier for people to imagine something like CAMP happening to them, which boosts its appeal.

And people should ease off Wesley Crusher.  He is a fellow homebrewer!

Re: Writing Status

i found camp on igrrl (a sex stories site) in about 2001 or 2002 that led to emcsa then to ewp then here while not perfect it still holds a high place for me
I even have a copy of Taking on the World - an insanity fic by Enterprise and Net Wolf a camp crossover fic (not sure if you actually co wrote or not)
I've been a fan for awhile and will be for a long time to come

Re: Writing Status

We will not be discussing Taking on the World.  Yes, I was part of the project.  Yes, it contributed to my supposed departure from public life from 2002-2004.  No, I don't wish to relive that period.

Re: Writing Status

Oh yeah, you should also burn your copy of TotW.  If this means burning your entire PC, so be it.

Re: Writing Status

Well, you're not going to.  Even if I was stupid enough to release it, there were only I think two chapters ever written.

Re: Writing Status

Taking on the World was a story in which the authors' fictional characters came to life in the real world.... that was also a crossover... with an author who had created characters so powerful that they made Ron & Co. look ho-hum.

#1. I loathe crossover stories, unless the characters can actually be said to live in the same universe (such as my Justice Seven and Paladin characters).
#2. I have learned through hard lessons that characters that powerful are not useful in storytelling.  Life is too easy for them.
#3. The process of writing with another author was not successfully executed in this case.  In fact, I have attempted collaboration more than once.  It has never worked out for me.

Re: Writing Status

#2 can be very bad (in another world with my smart phone) they can also be awesome (one punch man)

Granted the 'awesome' tends to be the exception to the rule... because im sure i could find many more examples of the bad.

Edit:
Had to include the following example
Good: superman comics - he is protrayed with normal human problems, hella more interesting then the
Bad: superman movies
