Writing a Novel: A Change of Thought

Published May 11, 2010 by Iniysa

After much thought and a lot of talking to another writer here on VOX, I have decided that I am going to spend this year planning and mapping out my trio of books instead of full out writing. With creating new planets and all that entails, all the people on those planets my main characters will run into, I have found that I have a daunting amount of ground work to cover before I move forward in my writing. So with that in mind I will plan to begin writing the first draft of my story next year, which of course sounds like forever from now, but when I look at every thing that needs to be planned out…I might need more time then that. LOL!

So wish me luck and feel free to write your advice I can use all the help I can get. <G>

VOX Problems

Published May 1, 2010 by Iniysa

Is anyone else having problems with VOX? A good amount of my blog links have stopped working. I click on them and they take me to an error message then give me an e-mail address to write to. I have sent e-mail after e-mail after e-mail with no response, at all. Not even a response that says that there will be a response. So I have written one last e-mail. If they don’t respond soon then I guess I am going to have to find another home. 😦 In the mean time, running on little to no sleep here was my last e-mail. I might have been to harsh, but then all my other e-mails had been nice, very nice in fact. You just don’t mess with and angry, tired Scorpio.


VOX,

Okay, now after several e-mails, I am really beginning to be seriously fed up. I’m questioning how wise it was for me to start blogging on VOX. I’m really starting to feel like an idiot here because apparently the staff could care less about it’s users. More and more of my blog links are not working. Other people seem to be able to get into them sometimes as I am receiving comments, comments I can only read the first line of because I cant get into the blog to read them. And heaven forbid my comments also went someplace like my messages or was fully written out in e-mails. But then again, I seem to only receive e-mails for every three comments or so. I was not even going to bring that issue up yet. So now I have all these people commenting asking questions I only get part of and waiting for me to comment to them back. But all I get when I click on the link to go to a lot of my pages is an error message telling me to e-mail you.

Did someone tag them as inappropriate? Is it standard procedure is to take them down right away without looking at them to make sure it is? Because I have gone through them on my Word and none of them are against any rules that I can tell. One talks about me, my hopes, what I want to to use my blog for. I talk about my volunteer work, how I have becoming a vegetarian etc. Nothing inappropriate. So why are my pages not working? Should I go ahead and find another blog while I don’t have so much to transfer over? Maybe there is a blog site out there that will answer your cry’s for help.
