    Then you rule!

    One of my books has a dragon changling, makes one wonder, if one could chose, would they chose human(oid) or dragon women, or both?

    Ah... Sometimes I wonder if people on these forums are mildly psychic. :)

    I was going to reply to your "Then you rule!" comment with something like, "Yeah, whether I want to or not. :( " And then you went and expanded on your post...

    I think that someone who could go back and forth between dragon and humanoid forms would be attracted to both dragons and humanoids. On the other hand, a human woman who'd been dragon-ified and got stuck that way would need a time of adjustment before her new physiology started asserting itself and she started thinking that some of those male dragons were really, really sexy.

    I recently found that my stories, as does my life, contain too few otters. They are really something otter. Almost otterworldy.

    I just figured out why thunderclouds are so dark!
    Thunderstorms are so much more awesome when it's dark. Makes sense when you think about it.

    Ever notice that angels fall, but demons never rise?

    That's because they have no inhibitions about farting. If only they kept their gases in...

    Do you know of any (not in a video game) that have? It would be good for my research.

    Someone on this very site (Devora, I believe) wrote a story about a demon who rose... at least I'm sure he must have, in order to have fallen in love with an angel.

    No, that one didn't. He just fell in love with an angel, had a baby, and then renounced being a demon, but he was never made an angel.

    Fair point. But even renouncing demonhood could be seen as a step upward, no? If demons are morally 'black' and angels are morally 'white', he seems to have edged up into the grey area.

    Very true. I'm not a black hat/white hat writer. I just think it's interesting that something considered so "pure" can go so dark, but it doesn't seem to work the other way around for them.

    Educating someone has a tendancy to make them less uneducated.

    The true power of a bard is to draw energy from a crowd, returning it back them in an emotional and meaningful way.

    I have found there are four stages to a writer's opinion of their writing.
    1: My writing's good, I can do this.
    2: My writing's terrible, I can't do this.
    3: My writing rocks! I-am-awesome!
    4: (Usually follows a submission to agent or publisher) My writing sucks! What was I thinking?!

    In the frustration of trying to explain to my 17 year old son how the things he wants today will not be the things he wants tomorrow, I see myself having the same discussions with my father, 23 years ago, at the same age. The future was an impenetrable wall. I can remember 17 year old me. There was not enough time behind me to see far enough before me.

    Random thought for the day:

    You can teach knowledge. Wisdom can be found or realized but you cannot teach it. Trying to teach someone wisdom always sounds to the listener like foolishness.
