Daniel Mihai Popescu52,356They are the Survivors, a circle I'm going to share more often, because it has its own dynamic :)I hope you receive the notification this time, and if you receive it, it means you are in the circle, so you are not required to do anything. Just a "+1" from your part will be greatly appreciated, there's no need to spend your precious time with sharing or commenting.For non-members, I think you have to figure out on your own what to do, because usually I don't promise anything, I'm don't barter my circles membership. If you add the circle, it's definitively your gain, so I strongly suggest you to do so. The circle's title is not in vain, it really suggests the circle's dynamic. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  This, like all of my other circles, is an homage to you.Thank you very much for being my friends!2014-06-26 14:46:19412442853

Word Question

Alright, so I'm editing +Carissa Braun's book, and I'm looking for an answer as to whether the word knight works to describe one (and only one) soldier in the context of the world.

In brief, Carissa's book is set in a world based loosely on fairy tales in which the stars of the show are dragons and faeries, with the social organization being pseudo-egalitarian, the technological level being pre-industrial, and the military structure largely professional and organized along modern military lines with room, board, training, and equipment provided by the state.

There is no feudalism, land ownership is privately distributed, and while a nobility exists it appears to be supported largely from the royal coffers rather than large estates. Thus, there is no knightly class.

So! My question is this. 

If a soldier is useda... more »

You know what's interesting? They never use fat fat girls on these. It's never your 250+ girls. It's always the 'big' girls, the ones carrying a bit of fat but retaining an hourglass figure. 

The fact that these hourglass girls are always used for these things belies a subconscious(?) bias towards people the makers find attractive - a limited crop which does not include "every body". 

Ed; Nor do they use the very thin girls on the opposite end, for that matter.

Dear NA writers,

If you seriously remember 20 as "Wait, what? How does love and business and life work?" I feel deeply sorry for you, but maybe don't foist that on the rest of the world.

Most people weren't as shit at 20 as you apparently are now, let alone as you were then. 

Love,
Gabriel

Just, everyone completely buys into it, nothing happens, and the next day we just see where humanity stands.

The ability of living organisms to "survive" trauma does not make any one in particular unique. People talk about how "strong" someone is to have made it through whatever trials they've had in their life. "Making it through" is precisely the definition of the human experience. it doesn't make you special, it just means you're human.

We're all tied up with twine and stumbling along. Some just have more twine than others.

I never figured Tyson for a radical anarcho-primitivist, but I'll support a society in which every single person finds a way for their actions to affect only themselves. 

I mean, assuming he has a way for that to happen without it affecting anyone.

Cover Designers! Question!
How much money would it take for the 'potential' payday on "spec work" to be enticing enough to do it as compared to your normal rates?


I know there's plenty of upset over "spec work" in the graphic design field. I know you're not supposed to do it. But surely a $100,000 maybe would outweigh a $500 definitely, no? So where's that line? 10x? 30x?

So, like... when people list off the damaging effects of global warming, I definitely believe them. Science, and all. The thing about that is, their descriptions of the consequences always sound so epic that I start buying tires just to burn in the streets.

Hopefully I'll start a trend - I don't really intend to be here when we hit Cretaceous-level warming at the rate we're going.

So... not judging, but people who cuddle with their kids weird me out. Like, my family never touched for 30 consecutive seconds in my entire life. If I'd asked my mother to cuddle, she would've had me sent to therapy and read me Oedipus Rex for my bedtime story.

So... right now, you tax based on how much someone makes. The amount they give to support the authoritarian nightmare state is proportional to how much they make.

And... you then change the percentage based on how much someone makes, such that not only does someone who makes more pay more, but someone who makes more pays a larger relative portion of their income.

And... you're upset that they're not being taxed enough more? Is that about the size of it? Their "fair share"?

Of course I can write something that isn't tragic. It just can't have a hero in it.

Heroism, like ambition, is inherently tragic because it is inherently adirectional. It has no conclusion, no final victory.

If it has not failed, it is not the end.

So true.

If there's a particularly important or poignant scene coming up, move towards it not away from it. Don't throw in random flashbacks or weird introspection, you'll take away some of the anticipation and build up, thus taking away some weight from the actual scene. ___So true.

This is an interesting question.

For my part... I have the Librarian's way with words, the Creature of Names' dismissive charisma, the Centurion's mental flexibility, Adela's ability to direct adrenaline, Britney's bubbling attractiveness, Nathaniel's effortless intellectualism, Tyre's ability to fabricate a purposeful fiction, the sergeant's idealism, the neolith's tenacity, and of course Catherine's ability to fall into interesting situations without any plan or placement ;)

My first thought was "do I have positive traits? Does she have positive traits." 
+Michael Keenan said that I share Thalia's resilience. I said I shared her fierce loyalty.

So, what's the one positive trait you share with your protagonist? 

As you can see, this was stolen from Twitter ;-)___This is an interesting question.

The key to using a linguistic trick to end an argument the easy way is to be able to end it the hard way should someone call you on it.

If the trick works, the problem is solved. If it doesn't, their burst of confidence in having 'beaten' you leaves them to be blindsided when you have a logically sound argument, which is to say when you're actually right.

So! My question is this. 

If a soldier is used as a sort of supernatural guardian, can you describe him as a knight and have it not seem anachronistic and off-putting?

It kind of comes off that way to me, but at the same time I'm in the nitpicking industry so it's hard to say where that line is, particularly for the historical layman.

This means that I am gathering people who're interested in Urban Fantasy and would like to review Wyrd Calling. I'm hoping that the release date will be November 7th but that won't be in stone for a while. 

I want to be very clear that I'm looking for honest reviews, if you feel the book's worth 3 stars then give me that review. =) Interested? 

If you're interested then I'll send you over the blurb and put you on the reviewers list =) Thanks.___Looking forward to this... won't lie.

Do you know when they stopped seeing us as liberators?

Starting edits on the last book in +Carissa Braun's faery tail epic! I'll be sad to see it go, but I do so love to watch it walk away...

And, hey, still more books and more rounds to go ^.^

PS. It still needs a title... who has suggestions? I'm thinking The Fae Anomaly

Do-wop has arrived in Prague. It's in bars. On the radio. Bursting from open windows and passing cars.

There is a hell. And we live in it.

So, this. 

I do not write reviews. Not ever, under any circumstances, do I write reviews unless I absolutely adore a book and want to recommend it - we're talking 1% of what I read, tops. Partly that's because I find the whole process tedious and unrewarding, but partly it is because any attempt to criticize indies results in mindless, reflexive backlash.

Writing isn't a business for me, but I do like money and I do like to be read and attempting to write reviews in anything approaching an honest fashion is career suicide.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:

Indies deserve precisely the reputation we get, and exceptions do not and cannot change that fact.

A lot of people advise that authors do not review books. Just don't do it. Why? Because there's a high chance that if you dare leave anything below a 4 star review, they will do their best to tear down your book. Is anyone else seeing a problem with this? 

Now, a lot of people will tell you to just write happy reviews, but that doesn't solve the problem, does it? That also doesn't stop the larger problem that those petty little fools have created. You see, a lot of the reason that indies struggle to get reviews from book review blogs, and struggle to get respect, is thanks to those people. Indies are thought of as unprofessional, petty little fools who get aggressive and dramatic when someone dares even think about being critical. 

The answer to that problem is not to reward their shitty behaviour by stopping giving them criticism. No. The answer is to stand up to them, as a collective, and to stop them from ruining it for the rest of us. We need to stand together to prove that we're professionals. We need to stop shying away and allowing those idiots to control our actions. 

I will not be giving in. I will continue writing honest reviews. I will publish my books without fear and I will do my best to help indies. Yes, I am gathering as many people as possible to give me honest reviews to counteract the issues, but is that such a bad thing? 

Who will stand with me? Who will fight to help improves indies as a whole and drive back the idiots who ruin it for the rest of us?___So, this.

My conscience is like an absentee parent:

"Say you're sorry!"

"But... I'm not sorry. I feel great about that."

"Well, you shouldn't!"

"Why not?"

"Oh, whatever. I don't have time for this."

Pascal's scheduling prowess aside, DISCOUNTS!

I nearly forgot to mention that my first novel Potus Goes to Washington is on a countdown sale which ends in a few hours. That is to say, I've negated any positive effect of setting up a sale by not announcing the sale and then letting it nearly expire.

Better late than never.

Potus Goes to Washington is a political satire that details the first 100 days of a mostly-fictional president who is elected on a platform to abolish Daylight Saving. Along the way, he inadvertently sexually harasses his maid and fights with congress. The climactic ending displays something that I think has never been documented before about the inner workings of Camp Davis.___Pascal's scheduling prowess aside, DISCOUNTS!

This post is going to appear to ramble a touch, so here's your takeaway:

When I have a lot of money to spend, I am happy. When I do not, I am not. I do not believe I am alone in that.

I've considered it fully, and I can chart my happiness right alongside my funding levels. If I'm in a position of needing money (even if we define that as 'needing to work to live comfortably') I am distinctly, undeniably less happy than I am when I'm flush enough to spend freely. Not a little bit, not a "better to cry in a Lexus" sort of thing, closer to a blissful and fun-loving vs. morose and intractable. 

The bottom line is, pleasure and happiness are distinct, but closely connected enough that the distinction becomes academic. When I can afford to party 6 nights a week and spend the 7th in bed all day (ideally appropriately accompanied), I am... more »

The bottom line is, pleasure and happiness are distinct, but closely connected enough that the distinction becomes academic. When I can afford to party 6 nights a week and spend the 7th in bed all day (ideally appropriately accompanied), I am happy. When I can sit at my computer and write indefinitely without even thinking about my bank account or calendar, I am happy. When I can travel wherever I want whenever I want, I am happy. When I cannot, I am not. Whether that's living below the poverty level (done it) or simply having to work to live (done it) the contrast between indefinite clear calendars and mandatory labor is clinically observable.

Does money buy bliss? No. Does money buy the freedom, the existential freedom needed to get bliss?  You bet your ass it does.___
