How the Writing Process Works...

Thanks to all of you wonderful authors out there. I have enjoyed reading your stories about the Trek Universe and I look forward to more in the future.

As most of you probably deal with editors, writer's block, timelines, etc, etc... you may appreciate this.
Made by yours truly.

Well. That's pretty damned funny but, sadly, my experiences thus far have been pretty smooth and awesome. Still, I'm kind of a noob with this crowd. Maybe it gets worse later.

Re: How the Writing Process Works...

Yeah. I don't know what writing for a publisher feels like however I certainly felt this during grad school when I worked on my thesis and had to go in front of my committee members. lol

I don't write fiction but my favourite story is how one of my books was published with the world busness on the front...

Marco can react to varying degrees, depending on the writer in question, but it usually boils down to some version of this:

Which can be a good thing, considering the time difference for non-US writers

Nor does it necessarily matter if the writer has been reduced to ash or not.

What?

No, really.

That's a perfect reenactment of the plot development meeting Marco and I had for A Singular Destiny.

My negative experiences have gone more like the scene from the first episode of Black Books, where Bernard's accountant flees out the office window with all his money...

Except that I'm pretty sure I've never told either of you, "You're the one with the talent."
