Central within the depths of BigUrban City is a tall ominous skyscraper. This building is the home of the powerful tech giant Dotcom. Within this building thousands of software engineers, programmers, bookkeepers, hardware engineers, and every other type of business professional you can imagine work endlessly to keep Dotcom in the top of their field. But deep within the recesses of this building, up on the 29th floor to be exact, an entirely different story is being told. The men and women who work on this floor are all special. They are top elite hackers out to take over the world. Follow the story of four of these hackers and their misadventures in the new webcomic Dotcom.
We are looking for an artist and a webmaster to help us with this new venture. If you are interested for either, please get in touch with either [RiverStar] or [Font]
Both artists and webmasters should submit a sample of their work.
CHILDREN NEVER CEASE TO AMUSE AND DISTURB ME!
At work today, one of the children, a nine year old girl, had brought in one her most prized possessions. This seemed like a normal school assignment to me, until I found out what she had brought in. In a small brown plastic treasure chest, was her pet hampster. Which had died a few months ago!!!!
New Idea Alert!
I decided I wanted to try writing another novel. A story following a group of friends...no more details yet
So I decided that I would start a workshop for novel writing that I could use my novel as an example for.
Come and participate! It will be great!
Novel Writing Workshop
Oh my god!!! True looks like Lance Bass!!

(True doesn't want this picture here, but I don't care because it's funny! That's right True! Funny!)
Just to make this clear, True absolutely objects to this and has done all in his power to make this blog entry go away. But I win!
Finally getting around to mailing out a special package for my boyfriend containing his christmas, valentine's day, and birthday presents....ho
He has been trying to get me to write a sappy romance story for awhile now, since he thinks that is what is stunting my ability to write anything else lately. I finally came up with an idea I want to try. It's actually going to be a stageplay about a young couple courting.
Hmm....Still trying to finish my entry for War Diary. Will hopefully get that done on time.
I saw [Nell]'s contest, Chapter Contest, and with his approval have started a sequel with a chapter of a story I wrote awhile ago. Chapter Contest 2. I know, I know, very unoriginal title.
Now all of this sounds easy, but next week is going to be hell. Creative project due Wednesday, essay due Thursday, two midterms on Friday. *sigh*
Alright. Personally I think this is a greay source for story ideas. Can you write a story explaining each one of these somehow...
I love that we have new staff coming in. It's great, but you know what. Try doing things around the site first, before applying. We want proof you are a good addition to the team. Participate in contests, try different things we have to offer. Also follow instructions. Really most are not that hard, so read first before you do things. Thanks to the new staff who have been great. To anyone we don't accept, try building up your profile. Make sure your house follows the rules and get involved. If we see your name all over the place (in a positive manner) then we are more likely to say "Wow this person is really involved. They would be a great contribution to the team."
My rant is done....
I found a crazy new contest. For anyone who participated in Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month), this is something similar, although possibly alittle more insane.
It's called the 3-day novel. It takes place over the Labour Day weekend. Check it out at:
I don't think I'm going to officially participate seeing as there is a $50 entry fee, and I'm not in the mood to pay that, but I'm going to try writing something anyway. See if I can actually pull something off in the weekend.
Woot! Verbal Combat! Go there and compete!
Make up a funny character and try to battle your way through the challenges!
I think I went rule happy today. I check every single members house for inline images. WritersCo is inline image free for one day! Yeah!
Oh my god! So funny! Thanks, Elmo, er, I mean, [Mr. X]!
Read this, all of you! And if you dare do any of those in any of your stories, may you be cursed with the Un-originality Bug!
Geeze! I really need to start getting some work done. I have soo much time on my hands, but I'm being so unproductive. *pokes herself* Off to work!
To: All Emplyees
Re. New Retirement Plan
As part of our continuing cost reduction effort, we are going to reduce our number of employees by means of a new retirement plan. Emplyees are being mailed a packet containing all of the details. The highlights are presented here.
Under this plan, older employees will go on early retirement, thus permitting us to retain the younger employees that represent our future.
The program, which will go into effect immediately, will phase out all of the older employees by the end of the current fiscal year. The program shall be known as RAPE (Retire Aged Personnel Early).
Employees who are being Raped will be given the opportunity to seek other jobs within the company, providing that while they are being Raped, they request a review of their employment record before actual retirment takes place. This phase of the plan is called SCREW (Survey of Capabilities of Retired Early Workers).
All employees who are being Raped and Screwed are eligible for a review by higher management. This will be called SHAFT (Study by Higher Authority Following Termination).
The provisions of this plan dictate employees may be Raped once, Screwed twice, but may get the Shaft as many times as the company deems appropriate.
Employees fulfilling the above requirements of the plan are entitled to get HERPES (Half Earnings of Retired Persons Employment Service). Herpes is considered a bonus plan since employees who have Herpes will no longer be Raped or Screwed by the company.
However, if management is not satisfied with your performance after you have been Screwed and given the Shaft, you will be put on AIDS (ACtive Immediate Dismissal Status). If you are put on Aids, you will not be entitled to Herpes.
It is now, and always has been, the policy of this company to insure that the employees are well trained. To accomplish this, a new program called SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) will be put into effect. With this program, our company will be able to give out employees more Shit than any other company.
If an employee feels that he or she is not being given enough Shit on the job, or that they could advance to another position by taking more Shit, please see your spervisor.
So. I spent most of the day working on my Butcher of Hannover project. Minus, of course, the minor distractions. I have also begun to think about turning it into a web-comic instead of a film. Would be alot more interesting. However I'm not sure on this yet. And I would need to find an artist willing to take on this rather twisted tale and work with me (which I might add can be difficult at times, being the perfectionist that I am).
I also got some wonderful work started here. I started building up the Business of Writing wiki. Feel free to add to it!
I also posted two more pieces of writing!
WOOT! Productive days are good!
Point 1) I am now a member of the crew here! Yeah! Work for me! Must keep busy this summer.
Point 2) I must find a job!
Point 3) I'm working on getting some stuff for my screenplay up.
Whoa! I'm finally here! Yeah!
Now to explore and learn how this place works!
I must also start writing some new stuff to post here. Hmm...
*runs off with an excited little giggle*
