I'm variable on content focus. If it's of interest to sf/f nerds, then it's of interest to the site.

as for content, we do have our roots in down-home mormonism. I think that we should stay PG-13 rated.

SE,

I have my column idea. I'm going to type up the official proposal soon, but right now NaNoWriMo is my focus, so I'm slightly distracted. Just didn't want you to think that I've forgotten about it.

i keep meaning to post here. I will be happy to post articles, but I can't corral people. I just accepted a job offer -- it was a lot shorter period of unemployment than I expected. I will set up some notification so I get an email when something is submitted, then I'll take care of it.

Congrats on the job offer!  What is it?

Thanks!

I'm going to be working as a technical writer for Serco on their long-term contract with the PBGC. Gonna be along the lines of things that interest me, but also looks like it will stretch me. I'm not going to pretend that I can get NaNo done let alone run this website while I'm learning my duties. and the new systems. I can do a little bit extracurricular, but not a tones.

Congrats, SE!

With NaNoWriMo over, I have a slight chance to breathe, and I've finally got a solid column/blog idea for TWG. Here's my proposal:

TWG Column Proposal

Title: Chaos Theories
Author: Eric "Chaos" Lake
Update Schedule: Saturday by 11:59pm

This article shall delve into issues in speculative fiction writing from the lens of mathematics and physics. I am currently an undergraduate with a math major and a physics minor. The first two columns planned are "Logic", and "Magic Systems and Conservation of Energy". Math and scientific principles can be an excellent seed for stories, and the goal of this column is to educate people with concepts they may not be familiar with, as well as lessons I learn through my writing efforts.


I'll also email you about this, SE. I know you're busy.

The first one will come by the end of Saturday.

This sounds like a very interesting idea, actually. As I said, I don't have time to actively promote TWG, but I can definitely edit/post a regular column.

I'm glad you like it. I assume I just submit it using the normal "Submit Article" button on the homepage, except putting the Department as "Blogs"?
