09:59 pm: Eventual novel
I've started a novel journal (my first one unique to InsaneJournal) that will begin posting in November. (I'm going to use NaNoWriMo as a lift-off, though I doubt the novel will be completed in a month, and I probably won't keep to that exact posting pace of 1667 words a day). It'll also be public, and available under a Creative Commons License, as soon as I can figure out which one best allows for any use except a) someone else claiming they wrote it and b) someone else selling it for profit. I'm doing that because I want to.

If you want to take a look at it, a post summarizing the bare bones/beginning of the plot is here: Fortune Favors the Bold Its profile may also prove informative.

Yay! I'm very happy to get to read some more of your work. :) Is there any chance that I could create a RSS feed of your new journal over on LJ? I don't browse IJ as often as LJ, and it makes it easier to know when you've updated. :) (This is assuming I can figure out how to make a feed, of course! :P )

Of course you can make a feed! Paid members can do so by going to the FAQ; that's where I found the information about feeds when I was trying to learn how to make one.

I went ahead and created the feed for this one, since I was able and it hadn't been done yet --

Thanks so much! I ended up not being the one to do it, but I really appreciate that you're letting us feed it. :) I got a permanent account before the whole blow up over at LJ, and dammit, I'm gonna get my money's worth - and make them pay for my bandwidth. :)

I really look forward to this one! I was intrigued by it when you first started talking about it. I'm definitely keeping an eye out!

Thanks! Here's hoping you enjoy it (and it makes a minimum of sense).

The plot-summary looks intriguing. Your MC sounds like someone I'd like to read about. Her life-philosophy is certainly bound to inspire some interesting plots. :D

Thank you!

And yes, it does. She's mostly a product of her culture, but she puts into practice what remains theory for most of the rest of them. :)

Could you let us know what license you decide on? I'm more than a little curious about Creative Commons but never really seem to have the time to research it to my satisfaction.

I am far from being a lawyer, but I think you want either the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/) licence or Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/) licence, depending on whether you want to let others modify your novel/create stuff based on your novel. The "ShareAlike" means that derived works must be distributed under the same licence, a good idea IMO.

Sure. I'll want to look around carefully before I decide on one, though, so it might take some time.

I'm really looking forward to seeing some of your writing. I've been reading the rants for about a year now, but I've yet to see major piece of your writing, and I can't wait to see how your general hatred of fantasy tropes weaves into your narrative.

Thanks!

In this case, some of the tropes will be hated on by not being present. There's no quest to save the world, for example; the action stays focused on a small area and a small group of people. And there's no destiny, no royalty, no prophecies. And the religion is one that the majority of the characters either believe in or can't just dismiss outright (I get irritated when it seems like the gods' main purpose in a fantasy world is to hunt down the heroine or dispense almighty powers to her).

Parthenogenesis

Well, the parthenogenesis explanation didn't work for me in high school, but hey -- this is fantasy. I look forward to reading it.

Thank you!

And it doesn't really work here, but Laiskaiss finds it perfectly reasonable, because it happened when the world was created. She doesn't know why other people can't be persuaded about it.

Only quite vaguely related: Are you familiar with the works of Jane Lindskold? If so, what is your impression of her?

I ask mainly because I started reading your Splendor's Shadow at about the same time that I started reading her Through Wolf's Eyes and was struck by some of the similarities.

I tried to read the first book of the series, but the infodumping annoyed me. That was after I wrote Splendor's Shadow, though.

I'm looking forward to it already. Is it all right if I friend you?

(By the way, I've been going back and enjoying a lot of your old rants and I've made a comment on the telcom rant and another comment on one of the earliest heroine rants. I'm just about to make a comment on your abused characters rant. Would it be possible for you to respond to the telcom comment? Your rants rock!)

Completely irrelevant, but I read the title as "Fortune Favors the Brave" initially. Too much Aida. >

At the moment there are 23 variations of the traditional 38mm Bell Ross available: white ceramic, black ceramic, white with diamonds, black with diamonds, pink sapphire, pink gold to name just a few. Then there are two types of a larger 42mm GMT Bell Ross Watches , a Superleggera, which is a certified chronograph plus an array of exclusive editions and custom versions of timepieces. The materials applied to make a Chanel J12 Replica Bell Ross are exquisite and high-tech. Ceramic is a nice and bold move away from the usual metal and leather world of Replica Bell Ross Watches .
