Re: Writers homes in Japan for almost nothing

Interesting article - thanks for pointing it out to us. Makes me want to uproot and migrate...

One thing though - even if you do manage to buy a house for next to nothing, you still have to spend a fortune getting it fixed up and into a condition where you can actually live in it.

1) Accurate information about the target

3) More weaponry than your target
4) Luck

Re: Write from Vietnam?

What do you think? If you've lived in or visited Vietnam, I'd be interested in what you have to say about Vietnam as a locale for expatriate writers. I can't comment about living in Vietnam, but as a holiday place Hanoi is stunning. (Ha Long Bay in particular.) Just about everything over there is (...

Re: How many fiction writers do we have here?

motivation - i even underlined it and put it in bold. sheesh. and trust me, the speed with which you went from your first thought to your second thought is a very good sign. hell, you might even be a writer with thick skin like that.

Re: How many fiction writers do we have here?

Hi Floss, My first thought was "Wow. That was f**king brutal." :shock: My second thought was "You have a damned good set of points there." You've given me a lot to think about - most of which I hadn't even considered. I think that some rewriting is in order. Now all I have to do ...

Re: How many fiction writers do we have here?

You won't be forced to walk the plank if you regale us with a few more hundred words. They'll give the sharks, piranhas, and barracudas, something to get their teeth into. I would post something, maybe. I keep meaning to get stuck back into writing but life keeps on getting in the way. It's the pre...

Re: How many fiction writers do we have here?

Randomly reading forums I'm subscribed to beats doing work on a Friday afternoon... Here goes with my attempt: It isn't easy to explain or describe what happened to me.
