    A New List Of Old Words

    SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK             It wouldn’t be another year if we didn’t come across lists of new words, something I discussed when the year was new. But what about old words? Now I’ve also found a list of words that at least one expert (insert air quotes here) believes should be retired. Next week, maybe I’ll find a list of annoying writing habits (such as the overuse of parenthesis).            One that made the list is the word “huge”, not because of the word itself but because of the way…See More

    Consultation regarding creating audio book and effects

    HiMy post is maybe non-topic consultation. Can not find a more appropriate place I can't decide how to create it. I mean artistic wise not technical wise.should i make whole story in one voice of a narrator? Or make some voices of the various characters. There is a father and mother, and their son. Of course with the dialogues between them. On the one hand it feels very nice, and will interest the readers audience (children) to hear the text with different voices and characters. Just like radio…See More

    Cowboys & Indians - Melody D. Scott

    I was in a movie one time.  All our neighbors had horses for their only form of recreation, as we did.  One of the guys had a brother in law who lived in Hollywood and knew a lot of people who had access to film, cameras, projectors, and sound implements.  This was at a time before digital cameras, so all of this equipment was rare to the average person. One day the brother in law decided we who lived in this neighborhood (about 20 of us counting…See More
