    I've got a small, but growing collections of Walking Dead items, as well as some assorted horror figures/collectibles.

    What about you guys?

    I thought "The Talisman" was incredibly boring, and it pretty much destroyed my desire to read the sequel. I eventually did because I found it for a quarter at a used book sale, and it's a good thing...

    I started reading it last night. I'm not very far into it yet, but it's really good so far.
  4. Best Way to Care for your Collection?

    Any tips on keeping your signed/limited editions looking like new? I've noticed a few books in my collection have accumulated a little bit of dust along the edge of their pages and the boards on my...

    I've done Nano a couple of times, but never got very far. I guess I need to over analyze my work, taking my sweet time on it. I may give it a go this year as well, as I've got a couple "short" novel...

    I figured as much. I didn't read the preceding posts, though. Personally, I've always marvelled at those who say they supposedly do no planning at all. I get taken out of the mood to write...

    A mixture of the two styles also works; write down and organize ideas as they come to you, but don't actively go seeking them.

    Collecting Stephen King proofs...kind of a niche field in which to collect.

    Still a little envious though. I'm sure the sense of self satisfaction is immense as a result of such a compilation.

    I've never been too keen on most writing exercises, feeling that they are a little pointless. All that time spent on doing exercises to improve one's writing could also be used to actually write.

    I absolutely hate these Kindle/ebook exclusives. I had to wait until UR came out as an audio book before "reading" it. Hopefully it doesn't take too long to get it in some other format.

    I read the first two books and thought they were probably the best things Koontz has ever written. Of course, I'm not really a fan of his books, so it doesn't take much, but I thoroughly enjoyed...

    I read "Little Sisters of Eluria" last and I thought it was a fitting time to do so, though it can be reasoned that any time is right, just as long as you don't start with it. Even though it's a...

    I liked your response, srboone, and it may prove to be a wrinkle in my theory, but possibly not.

    Yeah, I think I could write it too; the culture in which we live can become pretty vulgar. I'm not saying that's good or bad, but since I am witness to so much of it from other people, not to mention...

    This was a good example of the many different ways to utilize P.O.V.

    On the negative side, it was a downright terrible book. I hate Faulkner.
