Nah. Internet drama happens even when everyone is trying to get along, so why show up to the debate with matches and gasoline?

Unless you're talking about good pulpy fiction. What was it, every 50 pages something or somebody needs to be shot, stabbed, set on fire, hit, or drowned?

Every 50 pages? I wouldn't have any characters left. Wait, that might just work.

I'm the ultimate procrastinator, so I voted for "tomorrow."

I see that team is winning, so tomorrow I'll be in here yelling "Fight! Fight! Fight!" You better follow through.

I guess I'm doing it right then (more like every 25 pages though).

What this poll has shown me is that the majority of us are procrastinators.

I beg your pardon, I'm not a procrastinator, I'm just lazy.

Thank you, Mercia. But out of compassion for the mods, I'll get my snout fully inserted back into my latest book project and leave the fighting to those who think they can handle Betsy's fearsome prod hammer thingy.

Tell me, Christ, how you feel tonight.
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you feel that you've had the breaks?
What would you say were your big mistakes?

The fact that none of the options include a reference to Pink's "So What" song is a crime.
Exactly what I thinking. . . I listen to that on my way in to work (day job) most mornings, too bad I never follow through.
Na-na-na-na-na I want to get in a flight  :P

I told my husband about the fight over the Oxford comma in my writers' forum. He snorted: "Nerds."

How often do you wake up in the morning wondering if today is that day? ;)

I'm betting she gets up and sits down at the computer and says, "Alright, someone make my day."
