The Big Thrill

The Big Thrill asks a number of writers "What Can Thriller Writers Learn from the Movies" this week, and I'm one of the writers who weighed in. Although belatedly. I'm lame.

Check it out. Neil Plaksy and Charlie Cochrain among others are bringing up some very interesting points.


  1. Random: So, I can't actually comment on your blog - I get the spots to fill in my name and email address, but no box to type a comment into! :(

  2. oh oh. Thanks for telling me. :( I'm looking at the so-called 'Dashboard' and I'm thinking of banging my head on it...

  3. Aw, I love WordPress! But it's a BIIIIIIT more technical than Blogger, if I remember correctly (Blogger was 5 years ago for me).

    So, in the Dashboard, on the left, select Settings, then Discussion. I have the following selected:

    Everything in Default article settings

    Other comment settings: Comment author must fill out name & email
    Enable threaded (nested) comments to 5 levels deep
    Break comments into pages with 50... (this is a default setting, I think)

    Email me whenever: Someone posts a comment
    A comment is held for moderation

    Before a comment appears: Comment author must have a previously approved comment

    Comment moderation: Hold in queue for 2 or more links.

    Does that help?!??

  4. something was broken and the lovely person who designed the wordpress thingie fixed the broken whatsit. and now you can post comments.

  5. I'm not sure but I think I fixed the thing. wow. Wordpress is a lot more complicated than blogger. I couldn't have ever gotten it working at all without someone else doing the heavy lifting.

    Okay, off to pay the taxes. argh.
