Writing's Cool

So yeah.... discuss.

If your posting/writing contains explicit sex or erotica, please note that in the post title or the first line of the post. All discussions on A/N are open to all members, including minors and some prudes like me who blush too easily. Thanks in advance.

I've written a piece regarding Humanism I'd love to get some comments on - anyone interested? I don't want to post it online yet (or perhaps ever - I'm expanding it into a book!), but I'd attach it to a PM or an email.

Wow, 91. We should all ripen so well on our respective vines!

Shoot an example to me, and I'll speak with the other editors!

James, how do I submit some articles? I'm a member of two humanist organizations here in Sarasota, Florida.

I'd just like to point members of this group toward, a collection of writing by atheists on questions relating to Humanism. I'm one of the editors and a contributor of articles.

I'd like to offer my essay, "The Meaning of Life without God" as an essay for consideration. It describes what life could be life if our leaders lived for this life instead of the next.

Russell, Susan Blackmore changed my life. I still have to get to Don's The Errand Boy. My reading list is over-extended but your book is also on my "get-to" list.

If you like my essays, consider Mirror Reversal. Susan Blackmore played a key role in coming up with ideas for the plot. Memetic theory is allegorized into a zany story.

Second that - thanks Russell!

Folks, let me self-promote a little. My new book, 50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists is co-edited with Udo Schuklenk. It's published by Wiley-Blackwell, with October 9 as the release date in the UK and October 26 in the US.

The book contains fifty new essays, by a total of 52 authors from all over the world and widely varying backgrounds, and with very diverse viewpoints. Each of the editors has contributed and essay, and we've also written an introduction to explain what motivated us. Among the other fifty contributors are Michael Shermer, Peter Singer (writing with Marc Hauser), Prabir Ghosh, Greg Egan, Margaret Downey, James Randi, Graham Oppy, AC Grayling, Ophelia Benson, Susan Blackmore, Peter Tatchell, and on and on ...very high calibre people.

Watch for news about my current writing project: an annotated edition of H. P. Lovecraft's story, The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.

Don’t dismiss this outright as the work of some raving lunatic. There’s some sense to this story, if you’ll just hear me out…

Look, we all wonder if time travel is possible, right? Well, let me tell you something… it is. I’m from the future, actually. I know you probably don’t believe that, but seriously, I’m from the future. It’s a really great thing; getting to see the past, watching events unfold… stuff like that. We know more now than we ever would.

Behind all the fun, though, there’s a more serious aspect. We aren’t supposed to go in our own lifetime, and we are never allowed to contact our past selves. Let me tell you, I’m breaking that rule right now. Yes, kid, you’re talking to yourself. Your future self. I’m going to be executed for this, but you know what? I accept that. I’m preventing something by talking to you that is worse than death. I can’t tell you outright what to do, because the filters would catch it. This is the closest I can get, trust me. I can, however, send a little message.

You should probably read the first word of every paragraph, now.
