Community Guidelines

Published by under Superhero Nation

I provide advice about how to write novels, comic books and graphic novels. Most of my content applies to fiction-writing in general, but I also provide articles specifically about superhero stories.

Hello. Are you interested in getting professionally published?  We’d love to look at your work, but please keep these guidelines in mind.

  1. Writing talent is not required, but a good writing attitude is.  Please don’t get defensive or angry about comments you receive.  Apply what you want and move on.
  2. If your post is longer than 500 words, please try your best at spelling, grammar and punctuation.  If we’ve done multiple revisions of your work and yer stil wriing lyk ths, we’re probably going to move on to prospective authors with more potential.   At that point, I would suggest taking a basic writing class or hiring a book-doctor.  (At $10-12 per hour, I’m a distinctly cheap book-doctor and Cadet Davis charges about $15-20).
  3. We have a fast turnaround time, usually about a day.  If no one responds within a day, feel free to leave a reminder post.  Please don’t leave more than one reminder a day.

Jeopardy!

Published by under Jacob Mallow

I just took the Jeopardy test. I don’t think that I did well enough, but I did better than what I imagine was an abysmal performance last year. There was one science question (“this plant reaction rhymes with soto-synthesis”). The many questions on literature, the theater and movies were the trivia equivalent of a kick in the teeth.

Americans living west of the eastern time zone can participate on Wednesday and Thursday. Central/Mountain states at Wednesday at 8:00 PM CST/7:00 PM MST and Pacific Coast states (including Alaska and Hawaii) on Thursday 8:00PM PST.
