Well I've tried to cover all the usual questions in here but I'm sure I've missed a few along the way.
My stories are listed in 2 or more archives, is
that a problem?
I require a valid email address or ICQ number, preferably your real one, I don't care if its a remailer that goes to your real one, as long as I can contact you quickly should I need to do so, ICQ is even better. I DO NOT give out your address to ANYONE without your prior permission.
I highly recommend you include an email address for people send there comments to, its a great feeling when someone emails you and says great job! I cant wait to read the next one!
Please make sure you add in the Title and a 1-2-3 or 4 line preview summary of what the story is about, if I don't know I'm not very likely to read it. besides if you don't do it, I will have to and you may not like what or how I wrote it. Here's a sample of what the pages will look like so you'll understand why its important to have the summary.
Feel free to send me a short bio or what ever
you want people to know about you and I will put in on the index page where your

The E:FC soundtrack is now available to order from sonic images for $13.99 US. They say clips of the music is available to listen to but they forgot to include the links. Shipping is a bit on the expensive side for a CD. $4.00 for shipping to the US and Canada and $6.00 elsewhere. I do believe those costs are in US dollars and you may use cash, check or money order.
I'd like to share this site/image/story with a friend. How do I?
I'm flattered that you liked it well enough to want to share it, just send them the webpage address and let them know who did it.
That would give a direct link to (in this case) the image zoortele.gif which would result in several problems namely the author/artist never gets the credit they deserve for taking the time to create the image you so enjoyed and you are in essence altering their work in some cases as the web page may contain explanations or other images that go with it. I personally find it highly annoying when people do this. Doing direct linking also interferes with tracking, if a page is getting low traffic I am going to remove it to save space and with it that image you enjoyed because I saw no traffic on the actual page. I would assume its not worth its space.
At current I no longer have any plans on writing, I'm tired of the few people rude enough to bitch about my punctuation or this or that or something else. I write as I speak and frankly I don't give a dam about punctuation anymore. I did when I first started and you know what? My story sounded like sh*t and I nearly gave up right then and there. I finally decided to do it my way and I ended up with a pretty good story and if the elite "You need a period here and a comma there" know it alls don't like it then don't read my stuff but for now I'm no longer writing.
I'm just someone out in cyberspace who got a little bored. As for my real name, I don't give that out, sorry.
Find the show in your area.
oops! I sent someone something you did and they
posted/emailed it to someone else and.. and, now what!?
kidding=) I'm flattered that you liked my work so much you felt you had to share it.
I added this because 3 times this month I have found my own works being posted in places I
never intended them to be such as mailing lists and other websites. Sometimes my own name
not being included or the story/skit being altered a bit, one person even decided to
change the title, which annoyed me to no end, especially since it has stuck! I only allow
my work to be posted here because sometimes what I write causes problems, you wouldn't
believe the flack I got for Vengeance and I didn't even post the thing! As the copyright

No part of this story may be posted in part or full without written permission from me. If
you want your friend/spouse/lover/whatever to see it just send them the link address
please. I've found that just emailing them a portion of it usually gets me into trouble
for something I never did and I rarely get the credit for my own work, not to fair don't
ya think? Now if you did what I just said not to do: DON'T issue
an immediate public apology, I don't need people thinking I'm some kind of ogre or
something, especially when they've already seen several people apologize to me in the
past. Then I get yelled at by others because they think I made you do it. What you should
do if this does happen is 1)email me 2)email the person you sent to to explaining what
happened and request they not send it to anyone else and give them my web site address

public apology will be necessary, only once has this been necessary. Usually a private one
works just fine=)
