Thank you, Jim

Custom avatar, anyone?

A while back I started fooling around with a couple digital art programs and a tablet to try to make some stuff. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to give me a shot at designing a custom avatar for them. My resume is the avatar I'm using at the moment. If you want me to, give me an idea of ...

Isn't that obvious?

In order to stop it, you'd have to run in a straight line at the equator. Anything else would just throw off its spin.

Why would Santa live at the north pole when there's actual landmass and penguins at the south?

will agree

There would definately be an important distinction between plot and character driven. If it's character driven, I would have to agree that it's a very bad idea to kill off the main character, as they are the reason for the story. It's about them. If they die, it's usually obvious that it's going to ...

I'm so boring

I paid my rent with Monopoly money today!

No, not really. I didn't do a thing.

clarification

This story will be following the life of John and the price he must pay over the course of the centuries that he lives. The demon plays much more of a background role. I do have a great deal of work to do as far as nailing down the characters and fleshing out the plot. This is all good though. The c...

my not-so-humble opinion

I think that plots should be built in a way that any character, no matter how important, can be killed and still used to make the story better. As soon as you know that a character is 'untouchable' you cease to feel any suspense.

Unfriendly

Granted! Unfortunately, this board will have nothing of you standing on it. It flies around, refusing to let you clamber aboard.

I wish I had more chocolate syrup.

point, point and point.

I can see the point about the 'damned if you do, damned if you don't'. The demon wants the man to pay the price for a longer life though. In that case, I don't think it would be best for the demon to hold out false hope that could foil his plans. I think I'll have to clear that up somehow. When I wr...
