Looks like a friend of kendwoods had some virus trouble with the are-you-damned quiz.

I seem to be clean, but I'm running a virus checker anyway, and I recommend you do too. I guess that's my last meme.

I somehow spent a very long time explaining 'fabulous reality (with special emphasis on The Man From UNCLE)' over here, completely taking over poor dinahmt's comments section. Er. Sorry about that.

And I might get to see Bubbahotep tonight. If all goes as planned.

The Disease has entered Stage 12--sore throat and sneezing. Such is life.

Thanks for the link to the MFU stuff...

It was a pleasure having you around, especially since we had such a fun discussion :-) It's really interesting to hear the views of a pro fiction writer. It would be so easy to dismiss fanfic as amateur rubbish - but why then do pro writers turn to fanfiction for recreation? I wonder how many pro writers started off as writers of fanfiction.
*g*

In science fiction and fantasy, at least, I most writers start off as fans. Not nec. writing fanfiction, but being fans. And I know I wrote fanfiction when I was in junior high school, but there was no internet then and I was totally unaware of 'zine networks and so forth, so I had no idea anybody else did it. I was just scribbling down stories about my favorite characters in spiral notebooks.

(I think there was a lot of hurt/comfort, if I remember correctly.)

And the SFF community has this great big tradition of teaching and bootstrapping and paying-it-forward, which reminds me a bit of the Algonquin Round Table and the Inklings and so forth and so on.

And is probably the reason that SFF is such a tight-knit bunch, as well.
