Tech question ?

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Author: 

I have a question involving the internet and there are people around here who seem knowledgeable. The small business I work at has been having trouble with the internet, being unable to bring up a page or access different things. We called the company that provides us with internet to find out what was up, and they said we were starting to max out our bandwidth. It seems what we have with them is a T1 and they said our company must have out grown it's original needs when it was first installed, and would we like to buy some more?

Thickness of an image

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Author: 

People don't interact with each other, not really. We interact with an image we have built up in our minds. We see each other but we don't. We build this picture of what and who a person is and every action of that person, every word they say, is filtered through what we expect. Dirty Jew, stupid black, arrogant cracker, nasty queer, stereotypes are the foundation of these images. Large brush strokes we impose on people and of which we expect them to adhere, even if we must change the facts to make them do so.

I probably should have said this already but I'm working on another writing project right now, so 'A Boy and his Dog' is on hold. I have every intention of finishing the story, and I have not lost even a bit of interest in it, it's just that this other project is taking precedent at the moment. I don't want to give anyone the impression that this is another story that will go unfinished.

Like the title says there might be some delay in the release of the next chapter of "a boy and his dog". My grandmother has taken a turn for the worse again and I have been spending my free time (and not so free time as well) sitting up with her. She is doing better, and we expect her to improve but I haven't had much time for writing. I have been hearing some pretty interesting family stories though, and we have both agreed that we need to run for president in 2016 since we know all the answers when we are watching the news. My Nanny is going to be running as my VP. :P

A Boy and his Dog, Chapter 14

When I woke up that morning I thought my life was normal, Little did I expect that shortly I would have to deal with kidnappings, evil cults, assassination attempts, mutant rock stars, strange powers, mud men, and my own body doing a flip on me, and that doesn’t even touch on my dog!

Man, I should have just stayed in bed!

Dialect Survey Results

I found a interesting interactive site while reading the news on the web. Its from NC State University and it's a survey of dialect and usage from around the united states. there are 122 different surveys, about half of them are how words are pronounced and half are what kind of word or expression are used, like Coke, pop, or soda. It is all shown on a map with shads of color matching the degree in which it is used. The maps have a composite view and a individual view.

ringtone?

Forums: 

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for what a sixteen year old boy would have set as the ringtone for when his mother calls. He gets on pretty well with his mother even if she is a little strict. I'm hoping to add a bit of humor here but I don't really know music that well having never really been all that into it except for a little bit of classical.

Is it just me or do some blogs disappear before their time from the 'newstuff' page. You know, the page you get when you click 'more' under the recent blogs on the front page so you can look at older ones than the newest seven? Are people deleting their own blogs or do they get shuffled off before their time some how? I have noticed this happening to a number of different blogs in the past. Is it just me? am I going crazy?

Well I'm back to writing again. I'm taking it really slow, only a few hundred words at a time. Since my writers block morphed into a since of distaste anytime I tried to write I am trying to supplant this emotion by stopping my writing before I get to the point of feeling too frustrated. Hopefully this will help to get rid of the negative emotions by only feeling the pleasure of writing. I plan to keep adding more to my daily word count until I am back to where I was before.

sense of repugnance

I tried doing some writing again today and didn't get very far. Just sitting down and looking at the word document gave me a gut deep sense of revulsion. Like looking a mountain of house work when all you really want to do is something fun, only stronger. A real sense of repugnance for the whole thing. Has anyone else ever had that kind of feeling when they tried to write?

Fight the block! Fight it!

I was wondering how other authors handle writer's block? It is something I am experiencing a bit of a problem with now. I'm using the old trick of skipping ahead to another scene that is easier to write and hoping that after I have my creative juices flowing I can find a way through the part that was giving me trouble. Of course some times the writer's block is a bit more unwieldy and it is blocking any kind of writing. I usually resort to either just powering through it or taking a bit of a break from writing to see if time can take care of it.

So how about it, what do you do?

Some constructive criticism, maybe?

I am new to writing so I might regret this, but can I get some constructive criticism on my story "a boy and his dog" from a few people? Your going to have to be gentle since I'm not used to getting critical feedback. Also don't worry about spelling or grammar mistakes, those are going to happen and the reason I make sure to get editors to read it over first. (I have dyslexia, though not as bad as when I was young.)

Maybe you could also include some things that I did well or that you liked in the story to help get down the bitter pill of criticism?

A new title for A Boy and his Dog? any ideas?

I have decided in changing the title of my story "A Boy and his Dog" due to the fact that there already is a book and movie with this title and with similar elements in the story that I had not known about until some people brought it to my attention. I don't want people to get the wrong impression about my story or go into it expecting something based on false assumptions, or god forbid, not read my story because of prior bad experiences with the title. :P

What to expect with a magical gender change?

Hey guys I'm new to this site and I'm new to TG fiction as well (I'm also new to writing fiction in general) I was wondering I y'all could give me a little help. What kinds of changes (physical, mental, emotional, social, and situational) would a teenage boy face after magically turning into a girl? I understand of course that some of the ways he is effected will depend on what kind of person he is but if y'all could help me with general ideas of what he would face I would be very grateful.
