And here’s where you all hate me. I’ve come to a decision, that has everything to do with logic and nothing to do with schadenfreude. It occurs to me that, when I seek to get Po8 published (not far off, the draft will be finished within a month) it will be in many books (as in, eight). I do much like the idea of random people all over the internet knowing and even divulging major plot details, or even the ending. I doubt potential publishers would much like that either. Furthermore, fictionpress is no longer providing the benefits in feedback it once did. Therefore, I have decided to remove Pieces of Eight from this site. But if you check the Pieces of Eight google group, there may be something worth the while of a Po8 Fanatic.

Vestdan's rules of writing: 0) The single most important rule, in any form of narrative, is that everything has to MAKE SENSE, internally, with respect to the story as a whole. 1) Everybody is expendible. EVERYBODY.
2) If the audience is thinking one thing, that's the perfect time to prove them wrong.
3) Limit one ressurection per story. Offer void in Utah.
4) The world is NOT always saved by beautiful young people.
5) The world is NOT always saved.
6) Villains think too.
7) Whatt, me can spel goo?
8) Synonyms are my friend.
9) So is repetition.
9) So is repetition.
10) Every so often, it's a good thing to piss off your readers. A lot.
11) Grey and Khaki so do match, I don't care what anyone tells me.
12) Sometimes, life just simply sucks.
13) Some details are better left to readers' imaginations.
14) Some details, though indelicate, are better described at length
