Re: An Analysis of The Simpsons

Hmmmm . . . an interesting analysis that actually pinpoints where the Simpsons went "wrong." I'm more interested in the IMDB graph since there were a few seasons after the HD switch in Season 20 that were actually pretty good, albeit not as good as the early seasons. As for the humor bit, the video ...

Re: Short Story writing tips

Boy, do I struggle with #3. I guess I shouldn't have started writing novels first ;P I do agree with most of his points, but I'd add something to #1: critique the stories you read. If you can figure out what you liked and did not like about these stories, then these are the things you'll likely want...

Re: Fonts!

Re: 2017 Anthology Topic Discussion

I still think "Space Samurai" might be an interesting topic that could have some potential in a variety of genres.

Fonts!

As anyone who has created their own promotional material will tell you, there are two things you need to be aware of when creating something for commercial use: 1. Do you have the rights to use the photograph / picture? 2. Do you have the rights to use the font? This second one might not be as obvio...
