THE RULE OF THE COFFEE SHOP By: gooduklady

Important Post

Since Bookrix has been revamped, we have lost some "Important Posts" - formerly known as "Stickies" here in the Coffee Shop.

For those new members who have recently arrived, we have only one rule that everyone must adhere to which is:

NO PROMOTING YOUR BOOKS.
NO LINKS TO YOUR BOOKS.
NO REQUESTING FEEDBACK ON YOUR BOOKS.

There are many other groups on Bookrix where the above criteria are welcomed. The Coffee Shop is a place where... Show more

Recently I started working on an old story and I have reached what is supposed to be the most exciting part of the story... a heist. Thing is I have never really written one of these before and haven't really read any books dealing with the subject matter. Any book or movie recommendations would be great, as would any tips on how to go about such a feat. I would love to finish up this draft, if at all possible. I know I can,... Show more

Paul Blart Maul Cop 2 might be a good movie to watch. The main character has to stop an art heist. Besides that, I can't really help ya.

Do you know this movie?
Made in 1991, but still one of the best and thrilling stories:

Do you have your book-in-progress up yet? It would be helpful to be able to go to the climactic scene and see where you are.

I'd like to make a suggestion to the site administrators. We need to immediately change the name to BlabRix, develop a new logo and associated marketing. One definition of "blab" is to talk or chatter indiscreetly or thoughtlessly, and I can't think of more appropriate name. I know I'm as guilty as anyone for not posting new works on the site, but "in the good old days" we were encouraged through lots of small sponsored... Show more

How come letters that have "T" in the middle make a "D" sound? For example "Battle" people pronounce it "Baddle" or "Settle" people pronounce it "Seddle"

What's the difference between "ancillary" and "auxiliary?"

1 Comment
davebccanada

Although both words describe something that plays a secondary, supporting role, to me, ancillary lays more emphasis on the "secondary" aspect, while auxiliary lays more emphasis on the "supporting" aspect of it. Paraphrasing, I might define the former as having a non-primary... Show more

Where are Avery, Laird and their likes? By: Bobby

Every Wednesday at senior center they have started having Pizza. People eat and walk away. That is not the purpose of Pizza eating. Coffee shop too has become more a place for quick greetings than a place to converse.

So many folks from all around the World are here but there is zero input in terms of posting a thread or some meaningful comment.

That may in part be true because the Coffee Shop wasn't necessarily founded for meaningful or heavy discussions, but a place to relax, let off steam, be light-hearted to counteract the stress of daily life. As writers, we also tend to stress ourselves out and it's nice to be... Show more

I'm here. Just busy - busy - busy.

I take car of my mother during the day and when I'm not writing- I'm either editing for clients OR I'm working with a client here in my own neighborhood who has a fabulous idea for what could be a dramatic novel-length book

Only he's really new... Show more

Ever watched a movie that was so real, even though it was a fantasy romance, where you needed to press the pause button throughout just to reflect on your own past and reminisce ?

You got it.

Finished watching '500 days of Summer'. Took me 3 days. (Evenings)

Watch "The Naked Edge". You will never be the same again.
