    Re: www.ubdegub.co.uk

    Esta:

    You claim that you came to this WritersNet because you enjoy writing and wanted to find people with like minds. Yet, the ONLY thread you have participated in is THIS thread. If you would have taken any effort at all to go beyond this thread, you would find a LOT of discussion about the writing craft, how to get published, friendly conversation. This thread is not indicitive of the site as a whole. It is only indicitive of someone trying to push their services through the guise of discussion, getting defensive, then deceiving everyone.

    Why not take some time to check out Writing Craft or Smoko...you'll find a lot of good discussions going on. :-)

    FOr now, however, I fear our suspicions are true.

    Anyhow, Patti nor Roy nor myself have to "prove" ourselves because we have demonstrated who we are through months of posting on this board, demonstrating consistantly who we are and where are passions are. :-)

    Al:

    You definition supports what Roy was saying. You can't write a book. 2a comes close...but substitute the definition, you and see it doesn't work:

    I wrote a printed or written literary work.

    You publish a book, which contains a literary work. You write a story, etc.

    I'm afraid Roy is technically correct...although, it is unnecessarily strict. Everyone uses the phrase "writing a book" no matter how technically incorrect it is to say so!
