You should be afraid... very, very, afraid. posted 25 October 2005 in Author Q & AYou should be afraid... very, very, afraid. by Lucimay, Subdidact

VERY interesting perspective, echoex! you're so lucid and articulate that i'm forced to consider!!! <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post

NOOO! not at ALL!!! i'm absolutely serious!!!

Consider this thread, even. It's fear-mongering. Guerrilla marketing. You're appealing to our basic need to privacy. This incites fear. Fear is an emotion. We agree with you because you've scared us. You've essentially manipulated us into agreeing with you. Now, if this was true, true marketing, you would have provided us with a 'call to action'. Some 'rise up and fight' statement to rile us against The Man. But you're a writer and I'm a marketer and we are where we are because of who we are.


i thought this was good reply!!!! i should have just said "good post" but i am having trouble with posting, something running slow, don't know if it's my machine (i'm at work) or this site or what. anyway, i was definitely NOT being sarcastic. i thought it was a good post!! <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> that's why i smiled.

(HEY! *pout* i need to work on my reputation!!!! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> )


marketers will only offer you what you want, then you become susceptible to being told what it is you want by people who don't care whether you really want it or not


are you saying you think marketers don't already tell you what you want, Murrin? i thought that was their JOB!! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

(as an aside Echoex, have your read Wm Gibson's Pattern Recognition? it's sort of related to this conversation.) view post

i recommend it, especially given your profession! and here's a little book marketing aside...i am WAY more likely to buy a book, be it hardback with dust cover, trade pprbk, or pocketbook, if it has a MATTE finish cover!!! bizarre, huh? i have no idea why this is, i just noticed that i like matte finish better than gloss. weird. but i think this might be the case for a lot of people as i have seen an increasing amount of matte finish covers over the last few years. view post

Will Esmi Cause Mandati/Warrior-Prophet Drama? posted 14 December 2006 in The Thousandfold ThoughtWill Esmi Cause Mandati/Warrior-Prophet Drama? by Lucimay, Subdidact

Isn't it funny how we can dialouge about people who aren't even real? <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->


We all realize that these characters are fake



how are they &quot;not real&quot; or &quot;fake&quot;?

oh. you mean they don't live in bodies?

so...if you don't inhabit a body you're not real?

oh. wait. you mean they are &quot;constructions&quot; of the author.

but...author, persona, character.

if the author, who lives in a body, uses a persona to create a character, isn't the character real?

gotta get nit-picky here cause i think they (the characters) are worth talking about, in a real sense. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

not being a smartypants...just validating the conversation as a real conversation about real things. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

don't forget, when you're talking about them, that they all have purpose.
character function.

if you want to know what Esmi is going to do...figure out what her character function is. who is she? how does who she is serve the story? view post

thanks Harrol...how's it goin?

looks like you guys got hit with some spamatazoa action! urg!


you know what...i haven't been around because of school reading lists as long as your arm, last semester it was myth in literature and this semester (which is over but turning in my last 3 papers) was two lit classes with the same professor with TWO reading lists as long as your arm....everything from dostoevsky to confederacy of dunces in one class (including some de Beauvoir, Neitzsche, and Camus) and the other one was detective fiction so that was fun...

so i GOT TTT when it came out, BUT I STILL HAVEN'T READ IT!!! arrrgh!

i will get to read it over this break between semesters hopefully.

anyhow...thanks for the welcome back. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post
