| Although I do have a certain fondness for Ustalav, and a certain forest kingdom has been making eyes at me. |
21/11/2011 18:24:17 ‹Erik Mona› He didn't make a single mark on the manuscript!
21/11/2011 18:24:19 ‹Bill Ward› GameMaster's Kip: I'm currently rather enamored of Varisia.
21/11/2011 18:24:20 ‹Erik Mona› Ha ha ha. Just kidding.
21/11/2011 18:24:28 ‹xellos› Thanks, all.
21/11/2011 18:24:32 ‹weirmonken› Erik Mona: Can you share any information on the future of Planet Stories, or if there is a future for Planet Stories?
21/11/2011 18:24:37 ‹Richard Lee Byers› Justin, the aspiring writer should read and write, definitely. To that I would add that he should read both inside his chosen genre and lots of other things, too.
21/11/2011 18:24:39 ‹JC Hay› I am really fond of taking Bill Snyder's Beat Sheets to books and Movies, just to see how the same moments are used differently
21/11/2011 18:24:45 ‹Erik Mona› Justin: Nex is a little too hot for Ostog.
21/11/2011 18:25:11 ‹Erik Mona› Weirmonken: We've got Robert Silverberg's CHALICE OF DEATH coming up in the immediate near future.
21/11/2011 18:25:16 ‹Kevin Andrew Murphy› Galt is supreme. Since the Revolution, there is equality, liberty, and fraternity for all.
21/11/2011 18:25:20 * Eelario quit
21/11/2011 18:25:24 ‹JC Hay› GameMaster's Kip: Geb. Obviously. If you can overlook the farms, at least.
21/11/2011 18:25:27 ‹Howard Andrew Jones› Kevin -- nice!
21/11/2011 18:25:29 ‹Justin Sluder› Erik Mona: but it would give him an excellent chance to show off is abs.
21/11/2011 18:25:35 ‹Wes Schneider› Kevin Andrew Murphy: Ha!
21/11/2011 18:25:41 ‹Erik Mona› We haven't announced anything beyond that, but I may have a trick or two up my sleeve. Ask again after the holidays, and I should have a better answer on Planet Stories. I'm working on it presently.
21/11/2011 18:25:43 ‹Gulo› No Taldor love?
21/11/2011 18:25:49 * _tombxoom was consumed by the Chatbeast (NOM!)_
21/11/2011 18:25:58 ‹Justin Sluder› Taldor sucks!
21/11/2011 18:26:01 ‹weirmonken› Erik Mona: Excellent, thanks.
21/11/2011 18:26:02 * Justin Sluder is joking
21/11/2011 18:26:07 ‹Howard Andrew Jones› I hate to cop out, but one of the things that inspired me to want to write in Golarion was how many cool places I wouldn't mind visiting.
21/11/2011 18:26:08 ‹Bill Ward› I don't like Galt, it gives me flashbacks to french class
21/11/2011 18:26:12 ‹Erik Mona› Justin: Ostog goes shirtless no matter what the occasion.
21/11/2011 18:26:17 ‹Sir Wulf› Gulo: Evereyone loves Taldor... It really goes without saying.
21/11/2011 18:26:19 ‹Richard Lee Byers› Planet Stories has brought such a wealth of wonderful books back into print. I hope it does continue.
21/11/2011 18:26:19 ‹Erik Mona› Bien sur!
21/11/2011 18:26:29 ‹Erik Mona› I hope more people start buying them.
21/11/2011 18:26:32 ‹xellos› James Sutter: What do you think of the responses to Death's Heretic so far?
21/11/2011 18:26:40 ‹Justin Sluder› Erik Mona: He wouldn't be Ostog otherwise.
21/11/2011 18:26:40 ‹Thursty› Erik Mona: I see you're using my language now, buddy.
21/11/2011 18:26:44 ‹Howard Andrew Jones› I concur. Loves me the Planet Stories?
21/11/2011 18:26:45 ‹James Sutter› The best thing a writer can do is write regularly. Waiting for inspiration will kill you. Sometimes it's like pulling teeth, but I'm almost always happy with what I produce once I get rolling.
21/11/2011 18:26:53 ‹Erik Mona› If more people who supported the _idea_ of Planet Stories actually supported Planet Stories, there would be a lot more of them.
21/11/2011 18:26:58 ‹Howard Andrew Jones› I mean Planet STories!!!
21/11/2011 18:27:35 ‹Erik Mona› Thursty: I am a bit of a Francophile, but my French is weak.
21/11/2011 18:27:44 ‹Erik Mona› I agree.
21/11/2011 18:27:51 ‹ElaineCunningham› I have a question for readers. What length do you prefer for web fiction? Four installments? More, less?
21/11/2011 18:27:52 ‹James Sutter› Xellos: I'm incredibly flattered! It's exciting, and a little surreal. I'm waiting for the first crushing review, but trying to add each positive one to my little mental drawer of happy things.
21/11/2011 18:27:52 ‹Erik Mona› The best writing advice is: Write.
21/11/2011 18:27:55 ‹weirmonken› Does Planet Stories sell less than PF Tales?
21/11/2011 18:27:57 ‹Howard Andrew Jones› Alas, I tracked down many of those Planet Stories in their original form, so I haven't bought as many as I would have just ten years ago.
21/11/2011 18:28:01 * Jerpdog joins PFTales
21/11/2011 18:28:11 ‹James Sutter› Seriously--finally seeing this book in print is rocking my world on an hourly basis.
21/11/2011 18:28:16 ‹Bill Ward› hey Nathan!
21/11/2011 18:28:17 ‹Erik Mona› I remember Warren Ellis once said that everyone has a thousand pages of garbage they need to churn through before they can do anything good, and I think there's a certain amount of truth to that.
21/11/2011 18:28:34 ‹NSpicer› How do you guys settle on what part of Golarion to bring to life via a novel or web fiction? Do the authors get to pick and choose some area that inspires them? Or is it more pre-selected by the editor? Or a collaborative effort?
21/11/2011 18:28:46 ‹Howard Andrew Jones› Erik -- oh yeah. I think that's pretty true.
21/11/2011 18:28:50 ‹Gulo› I like 3 personally; beginning, middle, end.
21/11/2011 18:28:56 ‹Erik Mona› Weirmonken: Planet Stories sells worse than anything we do, probably including promotional posters and PaizoCon shot glasses.
21/11/2011 18:28:58 ‹James Sutter› Erik's right. The longer you wait to start writing, the longer it'll take you to be good.
21/11/2011 18:29:01 ‹Bill Ward› James Sutter: Should be a review of Death's Heretic on BG this week, btw
21/11/2011 18:29:02 ‹Gulo› er, to answer ElaineCunningham.
21/11/2011 18:29:05 ‹Justin Sluder› It could just be my imagination, but I think my writing has improved since I started running some play-by-posts on the Paizo boards. That, and working with some really cool people on freelance projects.
21/11/2011 18:29:08 ‹Richard Lee Byers› I'm in the same boat as Howard. Because I'm tragically old, I read a lot of what's in Planet Stories back in the Pleistocene Era when publishers like Ace reprinted the material in Double Novels and whatnot.
21/11/2011 18:29:12 ‹James Sutter› Bill: wooo!
21/11/2011 18:29:40 ‹ElaineCunningham› Thanks, Gulo.
21/11/2011 18:29:43 * _Ogre was consumed by the Chatbeast (NOM!)_
21/11/2011 18:29:43 ‹JC Hay› I'm not quite able to touch the original Gord the Rogue novels from my chair...
21/11/2011 18:29:43 ‹James Sutter› Neil: We decide based on author interest, but we also try to keep things moving around.
21/11/2011 18:30:04 ‹Justin Sluder› Erik Mona: really? Planet Stories doesn't sell well? That....sucks.....
21/11/2011 18:30:05 ‹James Sutter› I've only once told somebody "hey, you should do a book in X nation"
21/11/2011 18:30:10 ‹Erik Mona› Justin: I'm sure it's not your imagination. I ran a play by post Greyhawk campaign on AOL years ago, and I had to churn words like you wouldn't believe just to keep up with the players. That process, while not always pretty, definitely improved my writing skills.
21/11/2011 18:30:11 ‹GameMaster's Kip› I like nice even numbers, Elaine! So four is a pretty good number for me.
21/11/2011 18:30:13 ‹xellos› James Sutter: I mentioned on Google+, I was impressed with your treatment of atheism in the fantasy context.
21/11/2011 18:30:18 ‹Bill Ward› James Sutter: no, I'm wrong -- next Monday for th ereview
21/11/2011 18:30:32 ‹Rathendar› elaine: i don't have a specific number of installments, it can be few or many as long as at the end it feels like the story was "done" loose ends and threads are fine, but i don't care for them if they feel rushed or drawn out far too long
21/11/2011 18:30:36 ‹James Sutter› I'd much rather have an author get really excited about a place and pitch me on it.
21/11/2011 18:30:38 ‹Erik Mona› And being a literature and English major in college, where I routinely had to write 10 and 15-page papers over the course of a few days, burned away a lot of my deadline anxiety.
21/11/2011 18:30:42 ‹Wes Schneider› Justin Sluder: That's great! You don't have to be writing novels or epic poetry to become a better writer, you just have to do it. Feedback, and a mind receptive to feedback, also always helps.
21/11/2011 18:30:59 ‹Erik Mona› Having a $25,000 penalty for missing a magazine ship date did wonders for my deadline sense, too.
21/11/2011 18:31:18 ‹James Sutter› Xellos: Hey, thanks! I'm honestly pleasantly surprised that everybody's seemed to have a positive reaction to that.
