Blocked - The New Yorker “Yesterday was my Birth Day,” Coleridge wrote in his notebook in 1804, when he was thirty-two. “So completely has a whole year passed, with scarcely the fruits of a month.—O Sorrow and Shame. . . . I have done nothing!” Coleridge is one of the first known cases of what we call writer’s block. After the English Romantics, the next group of writers known for not writing were the French Symbolists. It is curious to see this writing inhibition arise in the nineteenth century, for many of the writers of that century, or at least the novelists, were monsters of productivity. Had this advice been given in 1850, it might have been gratefully accepted. In the United States, the golden age of artistic inhibition was probably the period immediately following the Second World War, which saw the convergence of two forces. In today’s psychology of writer’s block, as in today’s psychology in general, the focus is less on the unconscious than on brain chemistry. We will not hear from Ralph Ellison.

OneBookShelf Pricing Data OneBookShelf Pricing (Part Deux) Scott Holden, Just a little over a year ago, DriveThruRPG's CEO, Steve Wieck, blogged about pricing strategy for your RPG and RPG-related products. For the past few months, I've been spending a lot of time slicing up all sorts of sales data from our site to get some insight into best practices for our publishing partners. Pricing Basics First off, some things to consider when looking at this data: It is derived from combined sales on our RPG marketplaces from all sales in 2012 and 2013. Anyway, on to the good stuff! Sales by Price Point One of the most common questions we hear from new publishers, and one of our perennial issues for debate internally, is how to price products optimally. Clearly, there are spikes at each of the $5 increments, but that makes perfect sense since those are also the most common price points for products on our site. But of course that doesn't tell the whole story either. Of course there are outliers.

OFFSET vs GRAPHIC DESIGN 10 Geeky Debates That Had To Be Settled By Federal Courts "But, fans were not mollified, including Chuck Austen, who, one year earlier, had become the writer of the 'Uncanny X-Men' comics. He had worked hard, he said, to emphasize the X-Men's humanity, to show 'that they're just another strand in the evolutionary chain.'" And he did that by turning Polaris from slightly mentally unstable to fully pants-on-head crazy, turned Nightcrawler in half-demon, shipped a Mary Sue with Havock, and made She-Hulk sleep with the Juggernaut, who was her client at the time. Chuck Austen is pretty much the worst writer to ever write X-Men.

GenCon Writer's Symposium Word Count Definitions DISCLAIMER: This post was written in 2008, and revised in 2010. The publishing industry has changed drastically in that time, and word counts aren't nearly as rigid nor as important as they once were, especially for writers who are now producing e-original content. Additionally, novellas are now routinely being published by larger publishers, whereas in 2008 they were not. So if you are using this very old post, please bear in mind that at best, these are suggestions only, and suggestions from 2008 at that.Also, I am no longer an agent and haven't been for many years. Something I saw a lot in queries as an agent were word counts that exceeded 100k. Somewhere out there a myth developed - especially amongst science fiction and fantasy writers - that a higher word count was better. The exceptions are usually authors who've already had an established track record of sales with previous - shorter - books, like George R.R. Publishers want to make money; bookstores want to make money.
