      Oh wow. Well, I'm glad the owner trusted you to be able to step in and do that.

      The event was spectacular. A fantastic kick-off to what will hopefully be a few more years of annual amazingness. I'll be making journals every day, detailing the days, so keep your eyes peeled!

      Hey! I've got your RvBOR tshirt and your Epsi-Church art print stashed for you. Want me to ship it to you? Or do you just want to pick it up from me next time I'm in Bend? (I'm over there fairly often)

      So my memory isn't doing me justice at the moment... are you coming to RVBOR? Because I totally think you should if you aren't already planning to.

      Thanks man! I don't know about internet stardom, but it's always sooo lovely to come home to people saying congrats! Even if I didn't even see myself as FU this time! haha

      Full note is "Abstractions & wordiness can muddy the clarity." I wasn't really paying attention to the extra words when I took the pictures, haha.

      Oh my goodness, yes! Such a good song. I'm ashamed to think I only just bought it today when I listen to it on the radio just about every day. The mood, the lyrics, all of it is just phenomenal.

      No problem at all. We're all humans here (most of us anyway - I did just get robot spam lol) so we've all felt similar at some point in time, but I'm glad that I could be of some comfort to you.

      You're very welcome and I really hope everything picks up. smiley1.gif

      Ohh yeah, I was astounded by how vivid it was. And apparently, that's the game's real animation, according to the ingame screenshots I've seen. In that case, it ought to be an impressive game, and unless Valve surprises us all with Left 4 Dead 3 this year, I'm willing to bet it might take the cake for Zombie Game of the Year.

      Yeah, I thought, "Dang, that was a brilliant trailer," and the folks on Attack of the Show said it was Hollywood material, but even so, it was mentally disturbing. Considering I have three sisters... it struck a chord, that's for sure.

      Well, to be honest, nothing of mine has ever been published to a nation-wide audience. A lot of my writing is published through my Facebook page and is made viewable to my friends, but some of my older reviews were featured in a magazine. With publishing, it really matters what audience you want to reach to and what your piece contains. As a fantasy book, who is its primary audience? Is it tailored to your peers? Adults? Children? Once you've established who you're aiming it for, you can start the publishing process.

      Publishing, though, is a difficult thing to fully achieve. I've written books, yes, but considering I'm a Senior in high school with very little connections, I haven't gotten my inlet for publishing, not to mention my books are all Star Wars-based, meaning I can't do individual publishing. With you, though; as long as it's your material and nothing is quote "stolen" from others verbatim or thought-wise, you can pursue any method of publishing. If you have the funds, you can self-publish and only push to demand. If you have connections, you can go to them, have them do a review and get back to you. If you have even better connections than that, well... you probably wouldn't be asking, then, haha.

      I think your best bet is, for now, don't write thinking "I'm gonna get this published." Write a book to write it; continue to write books to become an author. A statistic Karen Traviss once told me was, "90% of books never get completed, meaning 10% is what you see on the shelves," and I believe it. Keep on writing, and keep your mind open to any and every opportunity that comes up. And make connections. Realize that nobody's going to come to you if you don't get your word out. I had to personally send letters to several authors, as well as call one, in order to get their attention.

      And you know, just keep writing. Sure, it might not become something, but you still will hold a completed book in your hands and be able to say, "I wrote that. That's mine."

      You make a very excellent point! And your quote actually made its way into my quote journal, as I found it very inspirational. Thank you for your words of wisdom! smiley0.gif

      Hey Squire; that image you're using was shopped especially for the Church of Church profile (Church_of_C)
      Since you're not actually a part of that, or had anything to do with the making of the image, we'd appreciate it if you didn't use it.
      Thanks
