The Lure of Easy Money in Publishing By: L. Avery Brown

Important Post

Hello, Serious Writers.

I know I've not been around a lot but I do pop in from time to time to see what's going on. Also, I like to clean up the main thread line where people post promotions and advertisements. Typically, I do this by informing the person who issued the post <why> the post has been deleted while letting them know that they are more than welcomed to repost in the proper thread.

And that, as they say, is that.... Show more


I read it. It looks very futural. And yet...who knows. It might be the future. Or simply a way to post and get hacked. As you said...need to wait to see where this leads to.
Personally. ..I feel that it's another way to be controlled by 'Big Brother'. First of all, using bitcoin... Show more


The future is wonderful...and scary.

No, you are correct in both assumptions. But not the paranoid part.

First, Bitcoin IS a way to get around not only the US government's way to collect taxes but also a way to get around the taxes imposed on digital purchases within certain US states and municipalities. As well as... Show more

Do you see the blipping vertical line that follows every letter you write in a post (or document)? What's it called?

The cursor is the arrow! The I bar is the vertical line with a top and bottom...a capital I I guess you'd say. The little dude without a top or bottom has to be something. He Blip. Blip. Blip. Blips all the time! I have to know what his name is.

There he is, following every... Show more

I Did Not Ask For Solitude By: Tushaun4

Important Post

Unwanted noise hammering away on the window pane outside my bedroom. Inside, an almost unbearable annoyance shadows over my existence. It is almost as if, they are mocking me, egging me on to lose control of myself. My home, although brimming with laughter and cheeriness, I find myself comforted by that that is my own solitude. I did not ask for this solitude. However, for the sake of my own sanity, solitude was a complete... Show more

And to know about your life, about yourself, keep floating with moments, stay awakened. Learning is a force, knowing is second-hand. You are using other's knowledge and making it yours. That is false. Instead of learning from other sources; either from your religious books, from your priests, from university just look within and witness the light…

"An incorrect use of words--particulately replacing one word with another word that sounds similar but has a diffident meaning - possibly fuelled by a deep-seeded desire to sound more educated, witch results in an attempt to pawn off an incorrect word in place of a correct one.

In academia, such flaunting of common social morays is seen as almost sorted and might result in the offender becoming a piranha, in the Monday world,... Show more

Hi all,

I'm new to BookRix! I've just published my first short story here, with one or two more to come before I also publish the Novella I'm halfway through.

Any tips or critiques from those that have read my short story The Hand That Life Dealt You?

Happy to provide the manuscript.
