Title: the last person to post here wins
Post by: fleamailman on March 30, 2010, 08:31:26 am
"...see, I've already won..." said the goblin again, who dearly wanted this thread to be a hotchpotch of everyones effort here, continuing "...come now, you win this just by posting something, but how you win this, or if you don't post here, is the benchmark of self is it not, but I have great faith in you, or I wouldn't still be here, double posts OK, reposts OK, beat the goblin if you want to play it that way too, anything, but post something then, and you have such talent mortals while life's clock ticks away your chance now..."

("...yay, it works, and we're in business again..." said the goblin again, thinking of the same conditions as last time, that is, trying to be entertaining on the one hand, while actually tapping into the lupusbots's courage with the other, adding "...well there are a lot more "live writers" these days so we might be joined by one or two of them here, if not I'll go it alone here as before, and remember, "anytime you post you win, so whose for winning then"...")

repost from elsewhere

the goblin's hopes were high, it was just his reality got in the way of those hopes again, saying "...the last post always belongs to the last poster here and the clock stops not...", somehow the goblin was reminded to a small bird who walks with a piece of bread too big to fly away with, where other birds form a queue behind him and where, when he finally drops it, the next bird picks it up while the first bird joins the back of the queue, "...oh well, it's still nice to win for a while then..." mentioned the goblin about it, adding "...after all, I made this thread for winners, where even the lupusbots had won on their thread now, and that was saying something..."

the goblin was thinking about that phrase "you can fool some of the people all the time, as you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all the time", saying "...just a reflection on my part, but surely no one would know that one has fooled all of the people all the time because they're fooled that is..."

Would that be legal or illegal drugs then

"...ah now, the media is the biggest mind altering drug of them all..." mentioned the goblin, continuing "...and let us ask ourselves how many people could survive without their television sets then...", in fact, the goblin was far too old for any illegal drug, and yet he saw the television as the greatest killer of old people going, saying "...if you put an elderly person in bed for too long, they will lose their ability to walk...", somehow the goblin remembered that phrase "the bed is the grave of the old" here, continuing "...and if you put them in front of the television each day, their minds will rot for lack of any real interaction too..." the goblin was simply thinking of the old age home where his mother had been, and the growing problem of dementia in old people now due to their newly extended lifespans then, where their participation simply wasn't required in their television viewing "...they succumb and drown in all this media viewing then, but here you can reply, this is where and why one wins here..."

repost from elsewhere,

the goblin was enjoying the replies here and would just read whatever anyone posted anyway, and yet somehow that voice in the back of the goblin's mind seemed miles away as if asking that one question again "...so goblin, what's it to be then, does one support "the south" here, well, isn't that what those americans are asking themselves too, ah but what is "the south" to them where it isn't what went before either, does one support "the south" or "the north" today, for where, and upon what, do they now rebel against that they should feel so fervent about it..."

("...to be honest, I don't where the old thread cut off, meaning you might have seen from page 60 owards, but who cares..." mentioned the goblin now)

repost from elsewhere

"...pick up the sword goblin, give me one good reason why I just don't kill you straight off then..." she wasn't joking too the goblin knew and as "queen of the Amazons"  she must have killed many men, and other women for that matter, and now she so resembled a tigress at this point, beautiful yet deadly, and as any true woman she either loved or hated,  "...I know that you can kill me easily o great queen but all that you've heard about the Eldorado ladies restroom, with that large stage sized mirror rimmed with those theater lights, where below it are endless bottles of hand lotions, creams, perfumes, crayons, lipsticks, all rested neatly above a marble wash basin to matching pink walls, where again a bookshelf filled to the brim with books by "Mills and Boon" and Babara Cartland, together with an uncountable number of catalogs of shoes, clothes, and fashion brands to browse and purchase await, yes o great queen, it's all true, but that's only part of it, there's a free telephone, a television, and the computer to do msn chat on, a "sound around" stereo system to listen to other women like Britney Spears, Madonna and Bananarama, even a kitchen alcove to stew jam and bake cakes in, oh and a catflap to let ones favorite pet come and go as it pleases, and so so much more o great queen if you would just care to join me that is...", which was, more or less, the way the goblin wooed his wife he remembers now, knowing that one had to truly appreciate a woman's priorities before one can actually approach one here

"...hi..." said the goblin, wondering if he'd even come to the right place is, his thoughts were more on the coffee machine at this point, but he just continued "...well there's not really much to say about me, married with kids I suppose, that's me then..." and then something crossed his mind  "...you see, the trouble in ones introduction is simply, if you don't meet the other person, there's absolutely no way to prove anything anyway since these are just words here, and the reader is blind, I mean anyone of us could be just anything then, who knows I could even be a human for that matter MYAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, no no just joking, thought it was funny though..."

repost from elsewhere, the "what are you thinking" thread

well, for example, the goblin was now thinking of the government's pension system and relating it to that illegal "pilot game" again, where the newer members simply paid their dues to the older one here, and seeing that, like that game too, it was only sustainable when new members kept joining in, till the pyramid eventually flipped upside down, so the question for the goblin now was simply one of how to word this idea in a way that was both amusing and clear, saying "...in fact, no idea is actually new in itself, nor is it really ones own idea either, as ideas are just inanimate concepts that anyone can hit on..." he paused, looking over what he had said, then continued "...no, only that, in wording out any idea in my way, the idea becomes both me and mine, doesn't it...", just it was as if the goblin followed the path of his thoughts with his pen now, and, regardless of what he actually wrote, it only returned him to his "the journey to self" each time

"...of course, you're our famous queen bot here, and my pen is yours o great queen, but guard your strength for we have a long haul ahead of us again now..." replied the goblin carefully, but  in his heart he had no doubt that he would build back the readership here, and queen bot would rein supreme then, saying "...as before then, it continues, just keep winning with me from time to time..."

"...remember, posts are the lifeblood of a thread here, if someone doesn't post something new each day, anyone turning up looking on will rightly raise an eyebrow, whereas if nothing new is posted in a week, he or she will think the site is sleeping, whereas if nothing has been posted in a month, most probably that same person will just presume that the site is dead then..." mused the goblin over his coffee once more, adding "...keep the site ticking over with posts then is my advice now, admins can't depend on members here, it's the captain who sets the course now and makes the pace..."

is there a place one belongs

"...no, there is only this internet, so wherever one goes, it's still only "oneself on this internet somewhere", for the forums in themselves have no meaning, they start up and fold like so many trees in the forest, they are only meeting places of personas, so whether it's here, there, or wherever for that matter, the forum just happens to be, and instead one must look to ones persona and the integrity of ones posts..." ventured the goblin, trying to bridge his feelings, adding "...so why do most adults hide, behind a persona that is, where most youths display all their personal details in full view each time, surely there must be a reason for it or else it wouldn't be seen so often..", maybe the answer is that, the less someone is known, the more honest he or she can be, so perhaps too, the choice for one posting life just falls between ones honesty and ones facebook here, adding "...so in reply, I guess I only belong to the internet itself, all else within it is a sideshow to me..."

("...ah now, that takes me back..." replied the goblin)

"...nah, you only fail when you stop, otherwise you're winning here..." said the goblin, adding "...why when I was your age, I couldn't write one line without missing a word, I still can't mind you, only that I have learned to slowly edit my texts, simply most of what you see of me here are reposts, where I have no shame in reposting, just I don't repost on the same site the same work twice that's all...", somehow the goblin remembered the eight versions of "the sun flowers" by van goth, and understood how sad it would all be now, if van goth had only done one of them then, for xxxxx was right, it's practice here

"...just, we don't know what this war is creating here..." ventured the goblin, thinking once more upon that portrayal of that man in the film "the dear hunter", whose final addiction to danger become evident through his constant exposure to it, somehow the goblin felt that the author had got his portrayal perfect here, in that, the goblin often saw this type of thing with extreme skiers here in the alps where the goblin lived now, where they too, had to venture off-course to "up the danger level" to reach some new feeling of intensity, heightened awareness, elated fear, or whatever it actually was then, so the goblin just concluded by saying "...both fear and stress can act like drugs where the body releases hormones to counter duress, and yet little actual study has been done to know who amongst us is susceptible to duress here, either as in "burning out under duress", or equally as in "becoming addicted to duress"..."

"...now that's better, though your heckles only betray you mortals, perhaps even more than this hitcount does, and i am flattered by it..." replied the goblin now, explaining "...so you claim that I waste my time in something which engages me to parry your barbs that i later finalize into "matched posts", hardly a waste of time since something remains of it now, whereas you don't do anything with your replies it note, and yet you still return here to see what i have written, so full marks, you'll make congressional speech writer yet for sincerity..."

Several weeks ago, Oklahoma passed a law, declaring itself as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives.  Joining Texas, Montana and Utah as the only states to do so.  More states are likely to follow:  Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi, Florida.  So save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once again.

the goblin was not surprised to read this, saying "...it only reinforces my gut feeling that slowly the country is decentralizing, much like rome did before its end in 410, where simply the regions became autonomous to the point that when the crunch came, nobody lifted a finger to stop it..." continuing "...I mean, can you imagine it was like some present day banana republic were to march on washington dc and sack it oh and yes, rome was still there afterwards, it still had its emperor too, just that dorothy's dog toto had slipped behind those curtains now and all could simply see rome for that wizard of oz it was, and no, this is not the end of america as an ideolgy or culture, only that is signals the growth of confederated america in my view, the south, or souths, have no need to break free this time, it will gain it autonomy de facto and without bloodshed too..."

"...what it's to be ceasar, sand or grain then..." remarked the goblin aloud to himself actually, surprisingly ceasar's voice from the back of the goblin's minds had quickly answered "...oh just get sand goblin, the plebs can survive this famine if they're distracted enough, besides what good is their bread to them without some circus to go with it...", and somehow, on hearing that, nothing seemed changed, rome was still "bread and circus", where sand for the arena took priority over grain for bread, "...so goblin..." ceasar asked back "...think anything has changed since my day then...", "...well not really ceasar, though these days it's called "media coverage" but it's sand all the same..."

from a british "last post" thread today

"...attention all citizens of our dear island..." came the young girl's voice over the loudspeakers once more, while the prisoner listened in, unconcerned though, it continued "...as you know this is "show concern for politics week", so remember to vote wisely in our forthcoming election, for I am sure you'll find the issues stimulating...", and somehow the goblin knew exactly what the prisoner was thinking, that it never really made much difference, since after all, the issues were divisive perhaps, though once in power, their decisions were identical, so there could be no real escape from the island

You really are totally unhinged aren't you flea. The reason you loose is the exact reason you think you win. If voicing your views and opinions to people, who care not, is what gives you pleasure then you are without doubt a very lonely individual, who could really do with getting a social life, and maybe even a friend or two that wasn't imaginary now.

"...well, you're the one posting back each time, aren't you just, so it seems that you can't be honest about it for all your words towards me..." replied the goblin, continuing "...more popcorn then, I mean look at it for what it is, since naturally one only has to not look at this thread, but you, like the others here, look on each time, nowhere else to go perhaps, or simply that we feed each other now where I am happy to admit it and you have yet to, look, everyone hungers for thoughts, the stupidity is to cloud the issue at feeding time..."

repost from elsewhere, the trolls site's "last post" thread

Quote
I think Fleabag is a secret Nazi.  He probably works for one of them Swiss banks that has sacks and sacks of gold jewish teeth in their vaults

"...no no no, we were only acting on orders..." protested the goblin, explaining "...most people were merely complicit in their acceptance then,  where their government was actually guilty of hedging its bets here, that is since switzerland has always been on the side of the perceived winner, so it played germany's tune till that tune was taken over by the allies's one..." , in fact, it was rather odd that whole battalions on retreating german troops could suddenly turn up in austria, field pieces and all, form northern italy, where a certain country, nameless of course, seems to be geographically between them then

[footnote: The Bergier Report criticizes two decisions by Switzerland that had a devastating impact on Jews attempting to find refuge there. The first, in 1938, was the country’s request of Germany to stamp all passports of Jews with a "J," enabling Switzerland to prevent large numbers of Jews from entering. The second, in 1942, was the sealing of Switzerland’s borders. By the time Switzerland changed its border policy in 1944, after no longer being able to ignore the extermination of Jews by the Nazis, it was too late for many thousands who had tried to cross. For those Jewish refugees who were able to enter Switzerland, conditions were often difficult. Many were imprisoned, sent to work camps, and separated from their families.

the goblin often wondered how kathy and the lupusbots could put up with him, but he liked it here, and them too, somehow the goblin needed to feel their courage, and take it for his own at times, for if they could "read on" then surely the goblin could "write on" with them then, "...well it's "the last person to post here wins" isn't it, and this site, together with this thread too is only for winners...." ventured the goblin knowing that winners needed something to win against, continuing "...and while one has this moment, which is after all, all that any of us really has anyway, one can't lose this game for one can always post back winning again, and again, and again, that is..." said the goblin ever sketching what he encountered, adding "...funny how this simple defiance of silence on my part, and of ones situation on your part, makes heroes of us all like this, who's for winning then..." asked the goblin as if already knowing the answer

"...a good editor, is just someone who knows about reader's likes and dislikes..." mentioned the goblin who often let the admin or moderator be that editor then, adding "...and in this sense, if one knows that the admin and the mods want content, then it's a great moral boast for the contributors here, where again if things are bogged down to some accepted writing style, everything twee, members infighting, site rivalry, etc., which funnily enough all have their parallels in the publishing world too, one can't rely on the site for the "contributing content" vibe that most authors live on...", simply the goblin was saying that a good editor plays mum here, to which the goblin laughed, joking "...how about changing it to "what makes a good mum" then..."

the goblin liked queenbot's photo very much, saying "...one would think it odd that anything could actually happen to a persona on the internet but if I start by saying that form those few "last post" threads before, came many many more, and yet, as much as I try, I cannot quite conquer the whole of forumland here it seems, though both the "live writing" scene, and my notoriety too, have advanced enough to have me wading through a jungle of notifications in my inbox, but that never stops me from coming if only to steal a kiss from queenbot now, saying "...who knows, you might transform me yet..."

Something within me then fears all that they call "organized religion" for the fact that it organized, and thus trying to organize one too, saying "...how often do I feel that religion is an excuse not to find out for oneself then, and that ones connection within, to that which has always been there, is just ignored because of compliant towing of the given line here, and no, I won't believe in, nor go somewhere closer, nor pay something towards , anything outside of me, when you and I know it to be just "there within one without those preconditions" then..."

"...true, perhaps if I could ever really get these posts right to myself I wouldn't need to continue here, since I would already know for sure what I am thinking...", so part of the goblin at this point was living his life normally, yes, but another part of him was watching the slide of the dollar under the largest debt in America's short history, adding "...so it seems that our distractions are wearing thin now, and yes, you and I might be helpless here, but I promise now that I won't look the other way while this happens, patriotism is, at its base, knowing by heart those principals that one holds to towards ones country, and holding one country to them then..."

Feel free to post in the fun section as long as it's relevant to the topic. But I'm afraid live writing is considered spam in the other sections, because we don't really know what you're talking about half the time.

"...only one thread, where it is..." replied the goblin, adding "...and agreed, they're somewhat intellectual in nature, so actually not understanding them is nothing to feel ashamed about, promise, and besides, there are plenty of other threads more in tune with readers aspirations and abilities here, so it's win/win for all, is it not..."

why don't you post elsewhere on this forum goblin

"...very simply, I never tag a thread for the thread's sake, or for the site's sake, each post has to be worth my posting to me now..." replied the goblin in all honesty here, adding "...have you any idea, what it's like to be on fifty "last post" threads then, can you imagine even, the number of notifications, ranging form praise to outright hostility, both form creative writing on writer's forums, to dark stuff on goth forums, on to supporting courageous lupusbots on their forum too, etc., etc., and all of them asking me that same question then, where I have to then apologize to each in turn, that there isn't enough me to go round now...", in fact, the goblin only did about one post a day but that post then had to be reposted fifty times over, before it even came close to finished in his view, concluding "...the more you put into a post the more that will come out of it, so where is the muse in just tagging threads..."

Yeah, I'm half-hoping for them to deadlock, just to see what happens.

"...nah, it's best not to hold great hopes towards british politics now..." advised the goblin, continuing "...you see, in the states, it's more dynamic and decisive, like "shoot first and ask questions later", whereas in iran it's just "shoot and don't ask questions" but in britain it's "keep asking questions, row over this that and the next thing, tea and fruitcake anyone, questions anyone now, and how is aunt meg's lumbago"..."

"...I cried too..." replied the goblin, adding "...but I guess, what with you're nam-vet background, all would have been clearer to you, you knew well that for some families who weren't shown in that video, the outcome was so tragically different, simply, most viewers from civistreet haven't got a clue what soldiers and their families go through now, they only see media coverage of warzones, where they don't realized that the soldier their viewing on the screen is actually a man with his family, no, they see action, excitement, whatever, but not the real context then...", and with that, the goblin then pinched the video, saying "...ah, but we're not to be trusted, though you know me by now, I can't resist true beauty when I've seen it..."

repost form elsewhere, heavy metal site's "last post" thread

“...well, it just happened in an instant, and he was just there right in front all of them, it was like wow, he was absolutely electric, as this god like voice just took over from the music with a microphone that seemed to the capture both speakers and those onlooking fans alike, its unbridled words crashing into ones conscience like a wave of perfection, at perfect pitch, he sang “...I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...” as a primeval surge went up from the gig joint at that point, continuing “...just like the ones I used to know...”, I tell you this guy could do no wrong now, the fans were simply his as if transcended at this point, fed on an ambrosia that only a real artist like this could offer “...where the treetops glisten and children listen to hear sleigh bells in the snow...”, magic!, you'll be hearing a lot more of this guy for sure, just remember the name "Bing Crosby"  and that you heard it first here folks

("...a picture even, now you are spoiling me..." mentioned the goblin before going to bed now)

the goblin most probably couldn't even "think his way out of a paper bag" this morning, though whether that was the frost coated view that greeted his occasional glance outside, or more likely that the fact this slow moving into Winter physically reminded him too much of decline, either way then, those spells, cast by a punchy coffee and deep music upon the surface area of the bistro had lost their usual potency with the goblin grounded, saying "...a wave withdraws to crash upon itself each time, just like my posting now, so this too, will retract to the point where it all crashes out of me in a post again, and then, when it does, it'll seem as effortless as something even witnessed by me..." continuing "...to be honest I watched the google stream of the film "Zeitgeist" through the night, hence this retracting feeling within me at this point, a lot of it reminded me of those two extremes within American society these days, that of "blind belief" against "blind disbelief", but they're both wrong I feel, America is not an angel here, nor a demon either, she is just human in my view, like the rest of us then...", well, except for the goblin that is for he was only a persona

the goblin as always has been neatly arranging those deckchairs on the titanic, since he knew that the ship might not actually sink in his lifetime, so there he was,still working/living as usual, while ever more evidence of the forthcoming ice age just piled up around him, "...ah, but none of this can be true because the media would have told one by now, wouldn't they..." went the goblin in some self reassurance here, but the media was not in the business of seeding panic here, and besides, who would then arrange deckchairs if there was no time left now

Where did you learn to write like that???

"...on "last post" threads..." replied the goblin honestly for once, adding "...if you write, I will help you, that has always been my promise throughout...", which was true enough, for the goblin proofread many posts for others now, secretly somewhere, liking it to his way of to getting to the "live writing", saying "...not that I don't like books, I do, but somehow anything unpublished is an unknown here, that is, no clear idea of either its length, nor of the plot, nor even of the ending if it has one then, yes most of the posts on sites are bad of course, but sometimes one hits gold, one is reading something that is both gripping and has the author on hand too..." somehow the goblin felt that it was some written equivalent of that difference between the theater and the cinema then, in that neither were bad, only different then, just that "live writing" was more akin to the theater in the goblin's view, as if happening before his eyes then, very much more present then

the goblin was thinking that most people were more interested in the dual between Iran and America, "...ah but the circus had come to town..." mentioned the goblin who had walked down the shop fronts of Geneva where these riots had taken place, and where only the shops and banks catering for the rich had bullet holes to show for it, and yet, in the hight of all this, the goblin remembered the manager of Starbucks calmly pulling out the remaining bits of glass from the window frame, while behind him the costumers continued queuing up for their coffees, and now, two days later, little remains to tell anyone that any of this had happened, for gone were the contenders now, neither those armor clad policemen with their CS gas and rubber bullets, nor those masked rioters with paint guns, stone throwing types, so Geneva had just returned to what it was before again "...duals happen and then the circus moves on but that's just geneva for you..." mentioned the goblin in passing too

("...that's the spirit..." replied the goblin, adding "...this is where I prove them wrong, so very wrong in fact, for here all shall see that I not a bad soul...")

repost from elsewhere, yet another writer's site banning the goblin

so the goblin then clicks onto the link, where once more, up crops that rather familiar page now reading "you have been banned" then "reason: you have a google history goblin", to which the goblin simply remarked "...well that's true enough, trouble is I have so much google history by now, that I not quite sure which google history they're even on about, besides, shouldn't they be judging my posts for themselves then...", but that was the goblin for you, forumland was so fickle, where one was liked one moment, hated the next, what of it, adding "...they haven't stopped my posting, and perhaps if one is not worth being banned from somewhere on this internet, then it's rather a sorry reflection on ones posting, unless ones goal is trying to become the internet's "one and only truly invisible poster"...", so the goblin never tried to get himself banned but never minded when he was, thinking the line was "ban me, read me elsewhere then", like now perhaps

repost from elsewhere, a writer's site again

"...so how do you feel the thread is progressing then, it's at 250/1806, which admittedly is only seven hits per post but still it's early days..." mentioned the goblin adding "...but you were right in your assessment of me in that first post, my untrustworthy nature that is, but the simple truth is that writers hate livewriters for obliging them write posts on par with their books and reputations...", so perhaps for this reason alone goblins were not to be trusted after all as you say, for the emperor wears no clothes here, and what's more he doesn't seem to do noteworthy posts either, well then, isn't that the kind of retort that most writers fear form the lips of that little child now, whereas this livewriter does not worry about that comment because he is on stage here

"...how the gods punish us with what we want..." lamented the goblin who, having closed the lid, had simply placed the laptop on the bathroom toilet, attaching the plug into the shaving socket to be safe, setting the ripped flv stream to play "the clash of the titans", whereupon, undressing, he slowly enters into the hot awaiting bath, thinking heaven held no secrets now as both the film and pleasurable hot water worked to sensuous effect on the then happy goblin, till he then  explained "...well I was happy at that point, only I had forgotten one minor detail here, that is, that water, for all intents and purposes, if actually wet...", an hour later a waterlogged goblin is sitting on the cold bathroom floor waiting for the film to end, where not doubt the gods were just looking down laughing their heads off

repost from elsewhere

one point that still stuck in the goblin's mind, "the soldiers should not be made scapegoats upon their return", where and when it just seemed obvious that america can't afford all this ongoing expense here, and where, under obama things have not been wound down, no, commitment to the two theaters if anything has been increased dramatically now, where those motivations for doing so seemed unconvincing, explaining "...first off, iran's religion is radical shia, where surrounding it is the more relaxed sunni, save for the middle part of iraq, distrust between them both is deep and goes back for centuries now, simply iran's spare of influence is weak at best then..." continuning "...moreover, america is to all effects a besieger where the sheer cost of the besiegement is unsustainable, especially where iran, knowing this, just has to wait it out, moreover again, the money used to fight terrorism abroad drains the kitty form sorely needed money to fight terrorism at home where no doubt the social/economic/political situation of today's america is fast becoming a breeding ground not only to some islamic style terrorism but for umpteen other types too..." but then the goblin really thought about the main reason here, saying "...and lastly, where ken was right in my view, these returning young soldiers from this warzone will cause, and suffer too, those same problems within the greater community at large that the returning vietnam veterans did, not least because the american people, who having been sold yet another "impossible pipe dream" once more, are likely to hold the military accountable, where the demobbed soldier in this case is an easy albeit unfair target, because these soldiers, like their vietnam counterparts followed government orders, so surely nobody wants them to go through the same thing then, as in "taking the rap for those short sighted war policies of the by now forgotten hawks in that whitehouse"..."

"...well imagine, if you were to add a picture to each post you did, what type of illustrator's eye you would get after about a year of doing so..." ventured the goblin, adding "...three goals here, "a writer's way with words", "an illustrator's eye", and an "internetself" but, of those, where the internetself seems the most important one, I mean to actually create something that is beyond dailylife's grip, something both ageless, faceless, responsive, and mercurial then..." explained the goblin, who coincidentally lived next door to an old age home as if it were to underline the whole point to him once more, the point being that if one doesn't learn to fly like peter pan here, one is just wendy then

the goblin liked the rain in summer, those showers that burst out and fell with all its pent up frustration and vengeance to whip cracks of thunder and sudden shocks of lightning, where each droplet just bounced off the surface in a drum-call of excitement, saying "...ah yes, I always myself admiring this rain then, a rain that one would least like to be under too, like a dark girlfriend perhaps, one who's entirely wrong for ones quaint little world but still so unforgettably alluring in wildness that one feels ever drawn to her...", and how the topic brought back a ghost of a girlfriend past now, where sometimes the goblin just hated his own heart then, saying "...perhaps I should have followed my heart over the cliff with her, and fallen from grace now..."

"...life ends when one stops caring..." went the goblin borrowing M L Kings's words, "...if that's the case, my life should have ended before it even started..." came the reply from within now, so the goblin just replied "...oh that where we differ then, for there are many things I care about, just that these cares are on my terms, nor theirs, where certainly what they might call important doesn't mean that much to me..." mentioned the goblin who always tried to avoid the too extremes of either opinionated or unopinionated, saying "...simply I'm forming an ongoing opinion then, resulting in my caring perhaps..."

"...early days..." went the goblin, adding "...but soon will have a thread with 1000 hits here, where a year ago, who would have thought that this was even possible..." adding "...and why shouldn't we blow our own trumpets once in a while...", and with the goblin just borrowed a line from that gnostic gospels where Jesus says "show me the stone that the builders have rejected, for that one is the cornerstone."

repost from "what are you thinking" thread, elsewhere

"...well I'm thinking about that internet-self again..." mentioned the goblin, continuing "...where the question remains how to create an internet-self which counteracts the demise of one physical-self here, as summed up in that idea of "the act replaces the actor", where writers too, are replaced by their creating then"...", in fact, although the goblin clearly understood that no one could ever escape their dailylife, he wondered if someone felt their age while creating something, since creating was so engrossing, so the goblin just confessed his madness now, saying "...for me, everything remains possible within my ageless vivid imagination while creating something, and, since this creating has no age, then neither do I while doing it, well not until I take off this mask and return to dailylife that is..."

"...catch me if you can then, but I am not poaching you anywhere..." repeated the goblin, continuing "...just you're too good for any one forum alone, you should be on many now, for how else is forumland ever going to know of you if you don't post yourself across it, yet perhaps it's best to start off somewhat anonymous, you can blow your cover whenever you like, though I never will, for I enjoy my anonymity far too much to spoil it,  besides, forumland hates people who stick up all their dailylife details so you need to be a bit imaginative here, besides, I never thought that person in the mirror was the true "you" anyway, no you had to be an angel in the way you alone befriended me..."

"If I'm 'too good for any one forum,' then why would I want to belong to another forum world...?" asked the dark pixie faerie

"...today it's the first stage of zen then..." ranted the goblin now, his stomach still churning from yesterday's whatever, adding "...it feels ten degrees colder than normal here, so whether I have eaten something, or caught something, really makes no difference, in that, whereas normally I am "going through the motions" during work, today I am just "going through the non-motions" where possible for today the man in the mirror would pass for a zombie...", anyway the goblin's imagination was firmly grounded at this point, saying "...I promise to escape my reality to somewhere else tomorrow, but today it's just the first stage of zen again, the one where one makes ones mind as blanc as possible..."

You might grow old yes, but not for a very long time..."


"...longevity is not the point of life..." replied the goblin, continuing "...those stars are stationary, whereas this "journey to self" seems all that more wondrous for its short duration here...", the goblin was thinking back to all that he had loved in his past, those ghosts then, saying "...how I now understand that which I once had, where its loss has grown this sense of value within me, bittersweet perhaps but uniquely mine now..."

wow, this thread is interesting... I surely have an opinion somewhere...LOL..., it's funny, lately I have been thinking how offline is now taking up too much of my available online time... what a twist from 2007, 2008, and 2009, now I feel I need some balance the other way, while I am no longer a forum junkie, I am not 100% happy with the little time I have for reading and posting

"...one idea then is if one can't be on-line often enough, is to prepare ones posts off-line for the next time one goes on-line again, thereby blurring the notion of being on-line/off-line here, where for example someones reply might feed me now, resulting in my "feeding the slot" like this, but if not, there is everything that floats up while either going through my passing day off-line, or conversely born of the depth of my staring at the computer screen like now still off-line though, but either way, being on-line or not changes little as the post itself is merely the culminative discharge of that which I have digested previously, so perhaps then, when people say my posts are a load of crap, indeed they might well be, but they have shriveled digestive tracts for saying so, for life is this feast is it not, something should come of it then..." replied the goblin

repost from elsewhere, how to make friends on writer's sites, example number 1

the goblin just opened up a bit, saying "...I imagine that most people follow their own writing rules, where certainly I hide myself behind a lax grammar usage, which becomes an individual writing style as part of a recognizable yet anonymous persona here, anyway I'm happy with the advantages it offers me now...", it was as if the goblin understood that most categorizations came from seeing some gap between knowing how someone should write and the way they then failed to, a discrepancy that revealed the writer's benchmark to the reader here, something the goblin deliberately avoided it as a trap, concluding "...simply if the reader can follow, then tedious writing rules are for those who haven't got something better to write..."

I don't know how to post in the way you are writing.

in fact, the goblin could accept the loss of most things in his life, where simply the longer he lived the more likely that those losses would increase as they have now, saying "...when I was young I had everything though I didn't know it at the time, where their loss today has grown this awareness in me, and yet, I can accept all those losses, and others too, that no doubt "old age" will bestow me later, all except one that is, for I hope I will never lose my sense of humor then, for the show must go on, but as long as I can smile I can go on with it..."

Please tell me anything you know about or have heard about Queen Bodicca.

"...britain was mostly conquered during the reign of claudius, the event happened in the reign of nero, meaning that the territory was relatively newly settled, the tribes were to be incorporated into the roman system, but in typical roman style, repression leads to revolt leading to suppression slaughter and final appeasement, unintentionally perhaps, native tribes were progressively culled like this..." mentioned the goblin noting how this system might have worked and flourished had not the "haves" and "have nots" become so clearly segregated and odious too,  that in ad 410 one of these same settled tribes finally sank the system by sacking the western capital rome when both the slaves and the poor actually opened the gates welcoming them in, in fact, the freefall that followed from there then was called 'the dark ages' but it was more like regionalism

"...nice post xxxx.." mentioned the goblin, adding "...I seem to live a famine/feast existence, where either I'm out of pocket at one end, or out of my mind at the other...", so the goblin's daily posting served as some safety valve towards that ever accumulating stress whenever things went too far in either direction , concluding "...no, infact I don't think I could live a life without stress, I would probably find it too stressful even as I have to fret about something..."

Your pictures are so cute.

"...thanks..." replied the goblin now, explaining "...you see, if I try to match what I write with a picture each time, then whenever I see some picture I am looking at its likeness to anything I have either written or intend to write about...", conversely it was the exactly the same for his texts too, for whenever the goblin wrote something now, his mind soon flicked up images, concluding "...for me this posting is all a practice then, but not to be a writer now, nor to be known even, no, only a practice to become more articulate and aware for old age if and when it comes for what else can I take with me..."

repost from elsewhere, on birthdays again

"...ah yes, those birthday gifts do help one to remember the giver long after its context has moved on it's true..." mentioned the goblin who looked back with a strange fondness mixed in with some regret too, explaining "...for example I remember flinging my school cap over the bridge into the river from the passing train, where I wish now that I had kept it, but also knowing if I had, I would just be sitting here regretting having not done that ritual as was custom then...", so that line reappeared again "perhaps we owe it to our past not to forget it, and to our present not to waste it, for who knows what future is owed to us in return", saying "...at night those dreams of my past dance before my eyes once more, as if their ghosts are called towards my pen, and amongst them childhood birthdays are ever vivid but isn't that what the ritual was about anyway, ones happy times..."

"...good posts on a difficult topic, I guess I am not really an honest person though it's not out of some wish on my part to be dishonest on my part, no, more a wish to retain the only thing I really have of myself, my own secrecy..." mentioned the goblin wondering if any of those things that made one happy actually made one think too, saying "...it's like being given the choice between being some happy sheep or an unhappy wolf as far as this dailylife is concerned, like knowledge at the cost of ones happiness perhaps..."

wins what?

"...well one wins whatever one puts into ones posts I suppose..." replied the goblin now knowing how writers took great care over what they posted for two reasons, first for the chance it gave them to get their ideas right to themselves, and second, for the chance it offered to pull readers towards their writings, while feeding off replies too, adding "...where now that other ludicrous idea of somehow becoming the last poster here is a serious no no, so best not think about it even for writers can type with a vengeance where utter folly is concerned..."

"...the best thing is probably "web cam" then..." went the goblin continuing "...having someone set it up for them then...", but either way the goblin saw a trap here and wanted to avoid solely depending on ones family by befriending forumland as well, saying "...so many families don't have time for the grandparents, where again so many grandparents make no effort to associate beyond their family now, so the real trap is that the longer they live on those ties to dailylife dwindle through natural wastage leaving them ever more dependent on ever fewer people, till finally tucked neatly into some merlin's cave the trap shuts tight upon them...", somehow the goblin remembered his mother again and then thought on saneca's line "ones plans are too late when in the arena", so he just promised himself that that trap wouldn't catch him without the fight of his life now, saying "...hail great forumland, we who are about to post salute you now..."

54 dammit, you tricked me.

"...ah but you can't prove it, as no one can prove it, one can only claim it to be true asking others to believe..." ventured the goblin whose age very much depended upon where on forumland he was, explaining "...well on writer's forums I look and feel younger than most there for I am not trying to uphold writing standards, whereas on troll's forums I probably seem older for there are limits I won't go over...", so perhaps what the goblin was getting at here was that "age" was only a mindset on forumland, where the mind itself was ageless

"The subject of anonymous persona again." laughed the vampire pixie faerie. "To me its kind of like a vampire. Being immortal and being able to do whatever you want because you want it. But it also has its major draw backs. Within being a vampire you have to feed. This case its on posts. But then again, vampires are great at keeping themselves anonymous."

"...you see, I have to keep myself anonymous..." replied the goblin now, explaining "...not so much out of some need for actual secrecy here, even if I did promise the captain to keep these two worlds apart now, no more simply it's because without anonymity one ages here, where nothing ages one quicker than being known and established...", somehow the goblin remembered greta garbo when at the very peak of her career she suddenly left hollywood and all that paparazzi behind, concluding "...well it's either that or dying outright I suppose, otherwise one is just compared to ones former peak and suffers the full indignation of clark gaibal's fate of being compared with something in ones past each time..."

For example the campaign adds they show. You don't know what to believe but they want you to believe everything."

"...love this thread..." went the goblin again thinking of something, explaining "...when some economic system fails, it is followed by a reign of terror where not only are resources confiscated but also knowledge is either suppressed or discarded, so it's only in those places with enough self-sufficiency and willpower that gain their actual independence but even there too, knowledge is a premium, for look at the fall of rome followed by the dark ages for example and just how grass root the regions sank to without knowledge, a few generations later they were unable to build even a three story building, where all that lost knowledge, on law, medicine, architecture, warfare, and the like, took a thousand years from ad 410 to the 15th century, to return via italy from the muslim world in the form of the renaissance...", simply if "knowledge is power" then its suppression, extinction, or replacement by something less powerful is a clear goal here that "the powers that be" can ill afford to overlook now, concluding "...today for example, from the media it's all either "news without views" or "views without news" resulting in either "ones not fully knowing about events" or "ones not fully understanding them", where simply the only thing one clearly understands, from what they cover on the news now that is, is that it's probably something else that they are covering up by it..."

Quote
Quote
"...ah but can one ever post back to a written book I wonder..."
Perhaps not directly, but ideas are born from what is read, and the reader can go on and write their own story or poem, or even blog, with a thought created by a single phrase. In a sense, it's a response, maybe not direct, but still a response.

"...that response is quite optional though, simply it can inspire one to react, yes, and yet that reaction is not necessarily noted down nor expected by others here, but posting is a different kettle of fish in me..." the goblin stopped for the words, then continued "...in that it shares the same constant "sense of audience" and self expectation yet is coupled with a need to respond directly on a daily basis, simply it creates a compilation of posts but, perhaps like these posts do, it creates the "precise ready man" if one were to think on lord chesterfield's famous line "reading makes a full man, conversation makes a ready man, but writing makes an exact man" for posting in my view is simply a written conversation here where one is waiting upon the reader to post something back, it's written rapport..."

repost from elsewhere, the  "promotion requires promotion requires promotion" thread

"...really, I don't have to promote anything at all..." ventured the goblin now, adding "...but I do have to find those forums that can advance my writing on, where more and more readers are turning up on this forumland now, for I would have thought that once one is widely known across forumland for interesting posts, then ones readership-base was secure, moreover, if one knows the direction the wind is blowing in, if you yourselves, along with everyone else in this busy internet age, are reading less books than before, then wouldn't it be wise to adjust to here then, rather than trying to call readers away towards your stuff by way of links and promotions...", in fact, the goblin never forgot when xxxxx posted somewhere "why are you just reading, you're writers, write something" for actually it was true, adding "...ah, but don't expect the reader to go to your blog, no your blog has to come to the reader here, conquer forumland is all I am suggesting, where the rest becomes plain sailing then, yet the days of sail are always numbered..."

I am so sorry. Where were you banned from?

"...well, by now the list is rather extensive..." mused the goblin somewhat practiced at it, explaining "...you see, joining some forum out of the blue is a bit like turning up at some venue and seeing whether ones act "steals the show" or "lands one on ones ear", where the outcome can go either way, resembling an interview in a way, in that one has to be polite, friendly, and ready with ones replies too, and yet one also has to remain true to ones views and beliefs here...", in fact, the goblin took the outcome in his stride each time, where conversely understanding that "to be universally accepted probably meant that one didn't stand for anything now", and therefore failing at times was acceptable where it was not ones actual goal then to do so

Anyway there are only a few livewriters about, but we always encourage a person to pursue their style and become better writers, to improve their style and correct their mistakes post to post. It's a chance to improve ones own self as a writer. Hope that helps.

"...very nicely put..." noted the goblin, adding "...it's beautiful to observe the effort involved in relating the love of your land, your family, your thoughts and views of nature and dailylife, all woven into the fabric of short illustrated precise posts on a thread that is clearly you to yourself now..." the goblin paused, then felt hard for the words he needed, continuing "...so if you feel married to the land, perhaps that I too feel connected towards forumland here, and "a post isn't a post until it's a repost" probably sums up this livewriting...", simply any site that bans one for reposting frees one, it becomes a badge merited on the simple understanding, that between their folly of "doing posts in some hap hazard one off way" on the one hand, and the sincerity of "finalizing ones post to oneself" on the the other, one has made ones choice here, or more precisely that choice has been made for you

It wouldn't be much use having multiple personalities if they were all the same, would it?

"...ah no, xxxxx is very much xxxxx, where admittedly there is a similarity in the writing style, but his posts are very different as you will soon see..." observed the goblin again not sure if he should be divulging concepts so soon after joining now, but adding "...basically there's an undercurrent within the published writing world that one has to write in this or that set way, in proper english perhaps, that then turns most writers on the internet into perfect clones of one another reflected in their need of a username, avatar, and signature to all tell them apart, but livewriters on the other hand need none of those props as they perfect their persona into something unique of themselves, which gives them the second advantage of anonymity here...", and with that the text was complete but the goblin still needed a picture here, no not so much for the reader now, more because, if he added a picture to the text each time, then an illustrator's eye would grow from it, concluding "...think of me as your friend then, not as an atheist towards the establishment then, more as a simple heretic towards it..."

Is it mandatory that your friends agree with you? Sometimes by being exposed to a different viewpoint, one can see another side to an issue.

the goblin only wanted people to agree with him when he was wrong, such was his weakness, otherwise he was wanting them to try and prove him wrong feeling his argument was sound enough, saying "...btw, I bought a sony ebook reader yesterday on the cheap, tactile, with mp3 player too, and 20hours battery life...", not that that the goblin had any time to read books, but for jotting down ideas in an instant it was just perfect, so as a notebook then, saying "...um, could you please agree with me that I did the right thing then..."

Your challenge today is to not be trolled into logging in any place you already decided was highly dysfunctional

the goblin noted that it was his dailylife, and not this forumland, that was actually disfunctional at times, explaining "...forumland is multifunctional, that is, ranging from any extreme one chooses on to it's opposite extreme then, whereas dailylife is narrowed down to whether one fits in with society's function or not, simply one can't be disfunctional on forumland because it is subjective to the self here, whereas in dailylife we are all disfunctional because none of us are ideal citizens in a society which tries to mold everyone into those that it wants, while institutionalizing that it doesn't..."

"...I never go back in person..." said the goblin now, enjoying the depth of of xxxxx's posts here, adding "...maybe when I am very old then, I'll want to see my roots again, but each time I return somewhere, the visit changes what I had of it, so perhaps my ghost are false memories even, but how often I'm just retracing my places in the past, for no reason then, like I'll walk around the garden, enter into the house, go upstairs, etc., visualizing consciously deciding my actions much like video game then, where the hardest part in these memories are the people, how they looked, the tone of their voices, down to the clothes and even the softness of the lose old skin, no the amazing thing is not what I remember still, more it's what I had actually forgotten by now until I made a conscious effort to retrace my steps in the past objectively like this..."

"...I am sure that many people would like to read your book..." started the goblin in earnest then, adding a few provisos though, saying "...but you have to ask yourself two questions here, one, "that what with the advent of the internet and moreover forumland here, do those readers still have the time to read books like they once did", and two "if everyone hated your books would you still publish them as a vindication of oneself to oneself perhaps, where conversely if they all loved your books, while you had grown to hate them, would you still churn out yet more of the same because it paid the bills...", and with that the goblin smiled, knowing that there were absolutely thousands of books out there, and millions of blogs too, and yet few could see the wood for the trees then, saying "...look, if you wait for your readers to come to your ebook eventually, you will have a long wait ahead, because at it's base and perhaps in spite of whatever they're telling you elsewhere, your ebook, your blog entry, down to ones humble post too, are part and parcel of ones persona as an author now, so perhaps if you do good posts, readers will go to your blog, and if you do good blog entries, they will go to your ebook then, simply readers recognize persona foremost is the point I making here, an author with no persona is a poltergeist perhaps..."

I am gonna write a little handbook, coz the ones out there were apparently written by
people who have never played in troll land so they are missing quite a bit of important information

“...well said xxxxx...” started the goblin, as if reading from her manual of “advanced trolling” here, continuing “...either way, to advance on forumland one is going to need to learn the dark side too, if only to deal with those self interested hecklers now, for one is ever on stage here, and remember too, that most forums are unforgiving when one first lands on them, simply one is alone with only ones wits and ones posts to win them over then, for livewriters defeat is the norm then, but the truth is that one is only looking for interesting people within their forum, where the general acceptances or rejection means what then, nothing, and more so if one doesn't meet anyone interesting there in the first place, so the livewriter is not a troll in intention but can resort to the troll's box of tricks where cornered, simply the dark arts are very effective against heckers..."

"...not quite..." replied the goblin, adding "...I think I was meaning that society socializes where it can, and institutionalizes where it can't , thus people wind up in prisons for their wrong doing, or in mental homes for their disfunctionality, or in hospitals for their afflictions or finally in merlin's caves for their old age, well those type institutions then, meaning that one is either socialized, or institutionalized..."

and with that the goblin somehow imagined that sardonic smile once more, true her beauty was unsurpassed, while her exquisite features and angelic voice only contributed to a sense of mystic tinged with danger here, "...so let me guess..." the goblin started slowly, weighing his words, then continuing over his hard black coffee "...I mean it was you wasn't it, that unexpected kidnapping of kathy from of her return from visiting facebook once more, no, only you could pull off a stunt like that, oh and then that masterstroke too, of leaving a coded ransom note asking three dollars for her safe return or five dollars to put her on the first boat to shanghai, brilliant, you see I know everything then...", outside, in the dark evening hum, the cold rain had abated for a while at least, as the night was closing in, somehow the goblin knew too, that she was right, there was nowhere to run to now, somewhere out there then, queenbot was counting her chances

"....like a drug isn't it kobold, where the hitcount speaks for itself..." smiled the goblin thinking back to places where his one post had received dozens of hits too,  adding "...nothing to it really, simply we write in posts here, we feed to read and read to feed, where people don't want to read our posts like some book now, oh no they want to jump up from their seats, much like when that all too ugly sister in the pantomime addresses them in person here, with that same old line "oh no you can't humans MYAHAHAHA" and they shout back "oh yes we can goblin" and how many times now, but that's panto for you, and everyone loves pantomime, and how I love it too..."

Are there rules to livewriting? Also a rather morbid question, ... when does it end? Does the goblin; not to offend; present as a separate character to you, or is it in fact the caricature of yourself?

"...ah, somehow I missed this PM then..." mentioned the goblin now, adding "...no rules to livewriting but simply you'll recognise a livewriter, they're much like the pied pipers of forumland,...", in fact, the goblin was just flea's persona where one couldn't write in third person without having one, adding "...or else it would be "said the person who is writing this" each time, so writing in third person requires a persona now, that's all,...", lying because there was so much more to it, but that was the goblin for you, simply one didn't quite know if one could trust oneself for ones caricature could well be the truth even saying "...but what is true in forumland anyway, and how does one find that out now, all personal choice then..."

haha, true. So do you write away from the forums, or is this what you write? ... Another q. sorry, but I have many, why do the mods have problems with it? It's creative and thought-making. Like, I got super confused at first, but now I like reading it... mind you I think I'd go insane trying to write it... but. Shouldn't the mods on here and other forums be open to ideas like that?

"...ah my bad then..." went the goblin knowing that it all blurred somewhat, adding "...well no, of me there will only ever be that which you read on forumland here, albeit that whatever I write bounces back between my laptop and forumland often enough with such remarkable ease too, perhaps so much so that one can't tell the two apart anymore, where to post is to publish perhaps...", where perhaps too, the goblin's focus on forumland itself as his mode of publishing didn't exactly endear him to those who would still have us believe that in order to be recognized, one had to wholly conform in both writing style and content to the publishing world, yet the goblin felt that one simply become another unrecognizable nonentity like that, so no, the goblin was actually happier conversing in the game-section rather than doing whatever in the writing section, adding "...so without my voicing it ever, nor their voicing it either, a heresy is born between us and sides are drawn because of it, that's all..."

How is it that your garbled writing makes so much sense? The other day I was sitting across from someone that was puzzling out a cursive word. Took me but a few seconds to get it, upside down. I enjoy your perspective. Be well

"...well that's probably because I can't write like you humans do, and perhaps that's what the posters actually want too, besides, where is there any anonymity where one writes on forumland as one does in dailylife now..." replied the goblin honestly enough, noting that his PM box seemed more active towards him than the forum was, adding "...you see, most writers are still trying to write for that publishing world, whereas I am a livewriter from the livewriting scene, you can google my username to find the others if you like, in that a livewriter's username is traceable like an authorname, whereas the persona bit is simply that which most posters will remember you by, so one builds up a loose association with some persona here, for example slinky_bas is a kobold, jats is a chameleon, giggler is the foolish, silentxmidnight is a spirit, etc., simply because few people will actually remember a username like fleamailman, whereas I don't know how many times I've read something equating to "oh no not that goblin again"...", "...well goblin she'll know you're mad now..." went the slot's voice in the background, "...ah no, she knew that even before she sent her PM, but now she knows the means behind the madness here..." replied the goblin hoping it helped her even if alas the goblin was well beyond help by now

on a day slightly different from others, the sun almost burns ones back from its brightness, and yet, the passing view from this village minibus is of a winter's cold frost here, where the goblin too, calmly holds on his lap his workday rucksack containing the plastic urn of what was his mother, and where the feeling is serene enough, surreal in its oddness even, with that same old slideshow of passing scenery without coupled with memories from within, where together they idled away the goblin's time aimlessly enough, "...first exeter bus terminal, a quick snack, and then that long leg down to london, then finding some cheap undemanding hotel in an old haunt, and then..., ..." but the goblin broke off form wording it now as if knowing that it wasn't really like him to think things through beyond their planning side, besides, his expectations were ever "well whatever happens, happens then", continuing "...and tomorrow, it's on down to felixstowe, that beach, and her sea once more, well perhaps it'll be our sea till I sprinkle her into it, then it's just my sea after that I suppose, so "so long" mum, you were ever restless during your lifetime, guess there's no point in my uttering "rest in peace" now, but would "so long then" do as some passing note between us...", but the goblin never did know how long that "long" actually was, nor how long it would be either, where no doubt that sea would seem an ocean of tears at the time

It seems like people are greedy and think of themselves more now than they used to. The politicians are corrupt and so is Wall Street. We were led into war by misinformation. People gave out false information to obtain home loans, etc, that is why they lost their homes. They could not afford them. What happened to honesty? Is it vanishing? Did we used to think people were honest who were not? Is character an issue anymore and is it taught in school?

and then, as if to spoil it, the goblin showed, saying "...well, at any rate, the world of adults is lying is it not, trouble is that is that lying slowly spirals out of hand in its continuation, for today has no american dream now, nor job for life either, so people have merely become a product of a harsh reality here, simply every man for himself then, compete with others and expect nothing less than to be lied to now, and the need to lie back in return, for these are our "fall of empire" times are they not...", and yes, the decline is well masked, and still the fanfare continues all around us too, but few people ever see an upheaval coming until it is upon them, because the world of adults is one of lies, and of our clinging to those secure lies that we ourselves so much want to hear now

"...alas, not a list but I have a wish that, that just perhaps now, and even just once too, if I could have a dream, and within that dream to suddenly find myself reliving some christmas day as a child once more, and in that dream too, just to be able to say "thank you" to all of them there, and have again those childhood senses of sight smell touch and sound that are so dulled in my adulthood today, and where too, all these adult calculations towards consequences could just melt away to some total childlike elation that just being part of my whole family again on a carefree christmas day that is..." mentioned the goblin, adding "...so now, if you ask me what I want for christmas, I would wish to emulate their benchmark then, because I can't go back to say "thank you" in person. ah but if I could now..., ..."

I'm not sure what to do, I kinda hate to let it fade away but I just won't have as much time for awhile ...and well, this forum is small already, which is actually OK with me coz it's easier to catch up on threads if I miss a day or two... but I don't know if it can sustain itself with just you and Jats

"...just post when you can then, remember, a forum lasts as long as the admin is happy on it, in fact, forums come and go anyway, where I have seen forums with far more members pack up shop, yes, but I have also seen forums with one or two members only, that are rock solid still..." mentioned the goblin, who too, always preferred small forums to big ones for the ease of which one could keep abreast of things, but the goblin hated tagging or posting merely the sake of others here, saying "... no, the question is simply why post, where a journey to self was my motive, but now it's mere habit, so much so, that I doubt I could seriously go long without posting something, for example, no one needs to have a bath, just they don't feel clean without one...", , whereupon the goblin just added "...so no, this is just how I cleanse that ever so indoctrinating dailylife out of my system each day, so I'm here but I'm here for myself..."

"...glad you see it that way then queenbot..." replied the goblin, who didn't care for those set writing perimeters either, saying "...mind you, it's not that I go out of my way to be wrong either, just I borrow machiavelli's idea here, that the prince must keep his word, ah but not any price now, meaning play the part, yes but remain true to oneself where one must...", hardly any wonder that the church then banned that book for being too subversive, and with that the goblin was just trying to remember how machiavelli had put it then, saying "...for the fox gets eaten by the wolves, where the lion falls into traps"was the concept then, for the prince must come across as a gallant lion to others, that is a man of an unflinching word then, and yet he must break faith where he has to...", whereupon the goblin just laughed, saying "...well, I keep faith to those who read and write with me, but goblin's are not to be trusted now..."

"...your best post yet, and so true too..." replied the goblin, happy to have someone smart feeding him now, continuing "...true that we think we are what we are, most probably because of how we see ourselves in the context of our dailylife then, but then again, that's exactly why too, I remain anonymous now, besides, since I can't prove anything about myself anyway, someone has yet to explain to me why I need to qualify my words here with some unprovable personal paraphernalia at this point, for here folks, both you and I are just as so many words written upon a screen, living books if you like, livewriters then...", and with that the goblin went over at the text he had written in terms of an image now, knowing how important it was to illustrate his texts, adding "...saying, well if every picture tells a story, then conversely every text must convey an image, but so what is the image of internet anonymity where it could just be anyone or anything..."

"...actually, I remember a lot more when making a point to recollect the past, than when I don't test my memory at all..." mentioned the goblin, adding "...though admittedly whatever I did at some point past has no meaning in my today now, just that it's best to not let ones memories go unrecollected too long I suppose, and yet, when I address my past objectively like this, lots of other memories that I had forgotten come to the fore, but however much I recollect them, it all means nothing to anyone else and is of no consequence to me, as it's just gone...", and besides, the goblin had long noted that there seemed some pattern in his childhood, carried on through his youth into early adulthood and beyond, summed up by that term the path of least resistance towards ones dailylife here, where one just repeats the same routine week in week out year after year, etc, so the goblin just laughed, saying "...amazing isn't it, that one dreams of adventure here, yet everyone actually prefers that little "nine to five" dailylife of theirs, with its security and creature comforts against that big unknown, that fear of death too, whatever, simply we all shelve the big adventure for some other moment to come, mine are memories of this shelving then..."

"...ah now, that is the world of humans for you then is it not..." went the goblin, reading xxxxx's post, thinking how important it was to render unto dailylife what was dailylife's, and unto the internet that which is more uncompromising here, adding "...when I was younger, whenever I wanted something, I would simply compromise for it, not so much as a deception towards her here, more as a delusion towards myself in believing such a compromise was at all workable in the long run, or that somehow today's gratification wouldn't come without tomorrow's consequence, simply "youth" for me was the folly of no foresight then...", where today, even if the goblin were to be given some time-machine, he couldn't really go back to his youth now, as his inner age has killed off his youth, just like his youth in its turn had killed off his childhood then, concluding "...so perhaps one day now, medicine will make one look and and feel young again, but it will never make me youthful like I was, no I would only hate myself for hurting her through compromise this time around..."

So that has me thinking, do writers really have the right to step into the cesspool of people's misery just for the sake of adding more "authenticity" to their works? Are there writers who have more license to access certain atrocities than others? Should there be respects given in some way or another, and how?

"...lots of hurdles to writing then but "by what right" has got to be one of the biggest now..." mentioned the goblin, adding "...and whatever one writes, someone is bound to raise an objection to it, where if one actually heeded each and every objection, nothing would flow from ones pen so to speak, so no, a writer has no more right than anyone else I suppose, just he's the one that ignores that fact and writes anyway...", simply the goblin understood that where one didn't name names, and where one remained anonymous too, then the internet was the devil's playground for news both true and false, adding "...but mind you, what with the standard media coverage being some muted joke of omissions, is it really any wonder that each one of us becomes our own journalist now..."

But...I'm a bit of an awkward person in real life. In the sense where it's not easy for me to relate well to just anyone who walks up to me, because I have a very strange mind. (Though what writer sees the world 'normally'?) I sometimes feel like when I make my characters, a lot of my awkward thinking pours into them, making them so unusual from anything that has ever been published, I start doubting any agent or publisher would want to invest in them. So I ask; am I wrong for thinking this way? Have any of you had the same or similar worries? And more over, how do I prevent this from keeping my self-confidence from dropping as I flesh my characters out?

"...ah now, you sound so unsure of yourself, but have I not mentioned elsewhere that a writer-type lives a shared life here..." inquired the forgetful goblin again suspecting that most musicians heard music in the back of their minds, whereas, more likely, artists would probably see images in their minds, and where again mediums would meet those spirits he supposed, and with that the goblin just continued "...all very matter of fact then, it's hardly madness in my view or something to fear now, and besides didn't seneca, in one of those famous letters put it everything one has, has you in return, so why not extend that same idea to everything one does, does you too, where alas the muse won't go back into her bottle, and where her little pact goes honesty, a shared life, and a thick skin, so accept it for what is, and yourself for who you are too, as one of us perhaps, for that wondrous journey to self is how she rewards those who share with her, promise..."

"...they're just a residue of those posts that one makes vis a vis forumland here.." explained the goblin "...for example this post too will follow that same process then, that is, I will first store it, and later repost it across many elsewheres in some air/edit/backup context, knowing that the airing got me feedback, whereas the editing improved it, and backing it up was due to the fickle nature of this forumland here...", in fact, the goblin was often doing his air/edit/backup of some post where the forum itself no longer existed, joking "...I'm a door to door blogger perhaps, rather than someone who just waits to be read then..."

Democracy is the greatest farce ever. That must have been proven to everyone by now. If we elect a government for four or five years, during that time they have the ability to do what they like within the bounds of the constitution. At best, they act in the in interests of the majority that elected them, virtually disregarding everyone else. At worst, they destroy the country for their own good.

"...well yes, democracy is a farce, agreed..." went the goblin, adding "...where dictatorship is for real then, but mind you, given the choice, wouldn't you prefer to to lied to, rather than being ordered about here..." , somehow the goblin's mind was first thinking about russia, where mr medvedev was president but mr putin was in charge, and then about america, where mr bush was president but obviously somebody else was in charge, concluding "...well there you have it then, the russians are more honest to their electorate than the americans are..."

christmas morning and the goblin was awake now, alone too, anyway at his age it simply meant that, like it or not, he couldn't sleep off those mornings like he once did, saying "...so the view from the window this morning is of windswept white rooftops, some bare trees too, but mostly it's of a grey featureless sky, and yet in a short while I will go for a walk within this painful scene, and with luck it'll spur my mind into gaining something worth posting from it for the surrounding adjectives will be fortitude, gratitude, and sobriety, ah yes bitter fruits compared with those of my youth perhaps but nonetheless mine for the writing about here...", in fact, the goblin wasn't looking back, nor looking forward either, no his present mind now seemed filled with a sense of foreboding towards those european economies in the forthcoming year, explaining "...the key to understanding all this musical chairs is an easy line sovereign debt does not have to be repaid here, where the logic is exactly as machiavelli explained in his book the prince, just to keep one's word till one can't...", so somehow the goblin knew too, that his christmas walk was going to be worth every cold hardship if the plot was evidently far deeper than anything the media was offering piecemeal and superficially in their coverage of it

So what’s it like on the other side? That’s the side opposite life, in case you don’t get my drift. Have you dipped your toe in, and returned? What did you experience? Have you communicated with someone on the other side? How did that communication take place? Can you recommend it as a place to go? Do you have any views on the notion that when a person dies, that person's soul returns to Earth to inhabit a new-born baby's body? And do we know we’ve been here before? If you’re wondering what I’m on about this time, I’m going under the knife in two weeks. The doc told me there’s a chance I might die. If that happens, I know you’ll breathe a collective sigh of relief and then throw a party, but in the meantime I want answers**    **erm, but not from Christians. Go annoy someone else.

"...does anybody have any more life than anyone else I wonder, where tomorrow is not promised even to the most healthy amongst us..." mused the goblin, adding "...and besides, where are those you loved in life if not within you at this point, so too, by that logic then, if someone loves you in the way you yourself hold someone dear within you now, then you already know where you will be, just welcome in the their hearts...", in fact, the goblin often wondered if the heart was not some portal to a spirit-dimension then, where perhaps the afterlife was akin to our internet then, just another sea of forumland perhaps

Anyway, so I've recently started a fantasy novel and am on my third chapter, but I'm finding it difficult to get the right balance between dialogue and description. At the moment it seems to be mostly dialogue, and whenever I try and add more description the plot seems to stand still... So my basic problem is: how do I keep the plot moving without leaving out the description entirely? However, there's also the problem of trying to find various ways of saying "said"

"...ah now, put it this way then..." started the goblin looking out across today's gray white winter's view of more whatever all this winter's snow was about anyway, not that it was actually cold indoors though, just that it was coldly dull outside, enough to make one feel cold everywhere, as the untrustworthy goblin slowly built up to his idea again, saying "...look, suppose one addressed any musician about what they need to do for some forthcoming concert, they probably reply "well first I'd look over the composition again, and then I'd practice my instrument till I got it fluid now", then ask any actor what they'll do for some forthcoming film, where they'd probably reply "I'd go over the script again, and practice my lines till I felt myself to be the part"...", at which point the goblin wondered just how many writers really wanted to write fluidly in third person within their books but spent most to the posting days here writing in that monotone unnarrated first person, smiling "...you see, there's nothing is stopping you now but it's does takes a bit of madness to do it, and more madness still to do it well, so what say you human, for practice's sake then, your transition awaits you now does it not, where you could become any persona you like, so why so first person always, can't I tempt you a little bit into my world then..."

"...ah now, one can't write in third person without having a persona here, yet it always begs the question "yes ok, but who or what is actually writing this then", simply, since most readers being used to books, they expect it, where some blanc from experience annoys them whereas a persona played well amuses them..." mentioned the goblin who also knew that most people wouldn't remember his username, like they wouldn't remember most, if not all, of the other usernames on this forum now, but here again using a persona was the trick since he didn't know how many times he had actually read somewhere that line oh no not that bloody goblin again, explaining "...so perhaps the idea here is to have a unique username that people can actually find one by googling it, together with a loose association with some persona that people can remember you by, where I in return get the chance to practice writing in third person and to illustrate my posts by adding a picture here, so welcome to my world human, now I imagine the next question is either why in the off topics section goblin, or that other one why remain anonymous goblin, or why that writing style goblin or who are the other livewriters goblin, though more likely you probably just want to know what I've been smoking..."

As a budding freelance writer, lately I have been busy searching for lots of tips and information on the career that entices me. On my travels I have read about so many fabulous writers, how they came about, their style of writing, what drives them, etc, etc. However, it seems that every writer I come across has the same gene......they have been writing since they were little.... For some reason this seems to dis-empower me. It's so wonderful reading about their journeys, but....then I realize...I don't have one! I'm so new to this industry. I haven't been writing for years and years. I have been keeping a journal for years - but I don't think that counts lol. Just something that was cruising my brain cells.......

"...well the question is "what would you write where you had no motivation to do so now"..." mentioned the goblin, knowing that sounded like a trick question then, and yet he was dead serious in asking it, continuing "...well if you can answer that question honestly to yourself, then you will know how you stand as to whether you really are a writer by nature or just one of those people who use writing as their means to some end in life...", the goblin's own answer was clearly in his anonymity here, no external reason then, which lead him to ask a second question, daring "...do you store your posts ever, I mean as some proof of progress now, funny how we use the wrong things as our benchmarks, where bits of your journal for example, reposted here might be a better proof of actual readership, rather than unknown conjectures concluded by comparing yourself with others, and besides, even if you were the worse writer in the world, it's not their journey to self here, it's yours, so don't you want to know yourself by what you write regardless of what anyone thinks of it..."

all these years later, the plaque was still there then, unchanged since the goblin's childhood, even if the old green painted bridge, together with its dark almost motionlessly water beneath had changed, in that hammersmith has become measurably cleaner today, but this little plaque then, that the goblin had first seen in his childhood, went back to a time even before him, december 23rd 1919 in fact, so the goblin just looked over the metal railing down the short drop to the gray dull water again trying to envisage a ghost here even if the details were so few now, relating "...the sparkling dark of chritmas time perhaps, simply he had jumped in after her, and saved her too, only to die a few days later then of some infected injury...", where, in the absence of any more detail, it all seemed to spell attempted suicide on her part, leaving the goblin's imagination to fill in that blanc that the internet had drawn for all his researching, but perhaps the truth might spoil it even

"...well I'm not so sure..." mentioned the goblin, wondering about that human nature again, explaining "...you see on this internet people don't really appreciate, nor trust for that matter, anything that looks and feels free now, so because of that I suggest that you first add the price tag to set value and to align any doubts, and then just let them pirate it as usual..."

“….as long as someone never admits it, it is very hard to prove an identity on this internet for I always remain anonymous where even if someone found out my identity down to the very last detail now, I would just never confirm it to them…” said the goblin, knowing that situations often change, explaining “…so my email address remains fleamailman, where my ip address changes with each session, and where the mac address behind my ip address is a linux clone, so at best someone would trace it back to a laptop in some bistro in geneva…”, just that the goblin was repeating that on the internet anonymous is best, explaining again “…for imagine if the political situation, moreover the freedom of speech laws, were to suddenly change for the worse here, then all that you had written to date as someone known would then be held against you now, wouldn’t it, for example did anyone back in 1923, during their failed uprising that is, think that the very same bunch of thugs would actually come to power in germany 1933 under hitler, where obviously intellectuals were then targeted either to be corrupted or, when that failed, to be suppress then…”

"...yes you are quite right again, where I am well fed on your post, and where too, my being gnostic means that I am not allowed to blindly believe in anything, even god, no especially god, so instead I have a duty to find out what I know..." mentioned the goblin, splitting the two between the self determination, something which as a writer needs, and considering that reader, which can be blinding as rightly pointed out, so the goblin put it another way then, saying "...imagine your readers to be like a pack of wolves then, where one needs to keep them in view because one both admires them while they inspire one, but even so, one doesn't actually let them devour one through their expectations...", simply the goblin felt that the reader often ate up the writer in this way whereupon the writer then became trapped, much like arthur conan doyle hating his own creation sherlock holmes because that's all the readers ever wanted of him, so the goblin just felt the answer was keeping a safe-distance from the pack while writing with them in mind, a compromise of sorts

But it seems that US services, no matter what hat they wear, are more interested in 1) standing around making a lot of noise about what they intend to do, and 2) being paid for it when they eventually get around to doing it. Americans just don’t have that “let’s all pitch in now and help each other” attitude that we do. They simply don't understand the concept of mateship.

"...no it's just we're talking about those ramifications of size again, where, the bigger the unit in question is, the more its laws stifle self sufficiency to encouraging dependency..." mentioned the goblin, thinking of how each empire in their turn became so clogged up, by their own bureaucracy and red type, that they were either overtaken by someone else, or toppled in war, or just fell apart by on their own accord then, adding "...each empire, one after the other then, like so many waves on a beach perhaps, and each without exception too, where at the time each empire seemed so powerful that no one thought the crash coming, which is probably what most people on the planet today think too, about these western powers and of the present status quo now, where human nature always submits to authority pushing that wave along each time, so why should this be any different now, perhaps too, the autopsy will read death by waiting for instructions then..."

How important is originality and should the writing process be contrived or organic?

"...well now, if nothing is new then how can anything be original..." mentioned the goblin, who had somehow guessed that once one starts looking over ones shoulder in doubt like that, then one will only start all sorts of sillinesses just to prove to oneself that one is indeed original, saying "...if it is not natural then it is unnatural, and where it is unnatural it is unsustainable, but I don't know how to write, I just write anyway, where what I write leads me to what I write next, so nothing I write is original because I have already thought of it by the time I have written it...", simply all originality has its origins in something else, be that words thoughts ideas or anything, and then the goblin just concluded by saying "...so by this logic then, either nothing is original having its roots elsewhere, or everything is original because it sprang from ones own conception of it...", which was why the goblin tended to avoid philosophical questions that ever seemed to out-pace his simple mind here, "...lord forgive him for he knows not what he thinks..." went the chorus in the background of his mind again where the goblin was loathed to agree with them once more, though he just had to it seemed

I think this falls into the fame side of 'fortune and fame'. Sure, I'd love people to find merit in my comments, but not because it's me giving them. I don't much care that people recognise my posts or remember that it was me that said something specific. Oddly, I'm not sure I like the idea of people searching for my name hoping to uncover more gems of wisdom and wit.

"...yes I suspect we live the same contradiction here human..." replied the goblin liking that reply immensely now, explaining "...well, in that I too, have no need of being known either, and yet I still read to feed now, where feeding requires me to find those who would post content in return for being fed now, perhaps it's the difference between being known and being recognised...", but all that was only the goblin's personal motivation now, whereas this thread was more about self publishing, so the goblin in his last post was merely explaining here how to self publish on forumland, how to maximise the chances of a good feed by drawing posters towards ones unsername while having an easy to remember persona perhaps, adding "...for example, if one starts a new thread, it usually dies within a week or too, whereas if one starts a random thread of some shared interest, well they can go on forever it seems, as seen with those threads in the games section here, so creating one's random thread across forumland is yet another trick of livewriting..."

"...so what do you suggest then goblin..." agamemnon asked, but the goblin was just looking down at the map of troy now, until moments later the goblin looked back at the king and presented his idea here, saying "...well obviously to date force of arms hasn't worked, but you could try another tactic now, I mean what if you were to first pull back your forces and then build a big wooden horse, calling it the federal horse of troy of course, and inside it, you were to place printing presses, promising to underwrite all trojan debt by issuing long term trojan bonds at interest to cover them, and as long you weren't actually audited, and if they don't ask any questions, you could then unpeg the currency from the gold standard too, churning out ever more notes with ever less value here, taking it ever further form fiscal stability and soundness, until it reached at point where, even with high taxation and austerity programs, they wouldn't be able cover their mountain of debt, and thus the whole economy would simply collapse, whereupon you could then jump in and silently buy up those politicians, corporations and any other assets you desired, after which you could then tighten up fiscal policy again, strengthening the currency too while requesting a surrender of bullion act perhaps calling it "the new deal" while making sure that all gold is handed over to the horse once more by it, whereupon you would simply up gold's price by 70%, and let the whole process repeat until you owned everything by default, but the real joy of this would be that the trojans themselves would still think that they, and not you here, are somehow still in control and running their country by voting for some irrelevant distraction every four years MYAHAHAHAHA...", not surprisingly now the king was giving that goblins are definately not to be trusted look again

last night the goblin's bed had been restless, it just seemed hours had passed before finally he had drowned into that otherworld again, finding himself standing in the sitting room vaguely recognising that it was still his parent's house now, albeit with minor alterations, where those two decrepit armchairs, the ones the goblin himself had burned in the garden for their strong smell of urine or sickly white wine that his mentally failing mum had spilt herself often enough on, were new again each placed with backs facing the two windows that combined to give a decent unchanged view of the wet autumn garden and its stone gravel driveway, whereupon a car could be heard now, that soft distinct crushing sound crescendoing nearer by the long moment till it stopped as usual in view revealing itself to be a normal aluminium type car, where dad must have been either driving or at least had met her outside if simply because when they came in together, she was supporting herself on his arm, like so many time before that is, save that he was longer supporting her weight here, no, here the action was more symbolic in perfect control perhaps, and she must have decent thirty years younger here, middleaged then, as they walked together to the further of the two chairs now, where the goblin's mother let go of her husband to to sit down normally, and to simply look around herself too as she often did, while wearing clothes that the goblin clearly knew to be those he had seen many years ago, though whether not allowed to speak or not wishing to now, instead she gently adjusted one of the two enormous bracelets letting the goblin note that each rectangular matchboxed sized set emerald had six pearls set impossibly within them, simply she was thinking again, whole again then, and with that the dream ended but the goblin had imagined, when he woke up in present, that perhaps she had returned to show her gratitude for spilling her ashes in sea last november, where then the goblin too, had said nothing at the time either, sometimes silence says it all

What is your opinion? New Mexico State Legislator is submitting a bill that wants people who file for un-employment to not only take a drug test but pay for the test themselves, they say if a person is taking drugs they shouldn't get un-employment and pay for their own drugs !

"...nah, it's just a way to draw attention to themselves, they're so jealous of sarah palin who gets more attention than them with her mastery of zen approach here..." mentioned the goblin, wondering which state would be the first to come up with, and then back too, the "shoot them on sight unemployment initiative" that will most probably come soon, saying "...things are just going to get worse now, the deception has yet to clear itself through the system, subprimes were only the beginning..."

"...your majesty.." replied the goblin suspecting that he could only really speak when spoken to here, also, that he shouldn't look king george in the eye either, continuing "...if I may be permitted then, in that well, we all understand the need to root out subversion amongst your subjects, and your colonies merit no exception here, but honesty this new proposal now, allowing your agents to make their searches with self authorized warrants without prior approval nor deliberation, that then forces those who have been searched never to disclose that fact to anyone, be that legal representatives, family, or whomsoever then, on pain of a prison term of up to five years too..." the goblin paused for breath, then continued "...moreover, that contained within that same proposal now, the crown being allowed to hold someone indefinitely here, without redress to any legal representation whatsoever, nor even told the reason why they're being detained then, your majesty, quite simply your subjects would rise up against you if you ever enacted this, where I'm sure you'd rightly lose hold of those new world colonies...", the king asked his prime minister if this was so, that this proposal existed, quite perturbed that the goblin knew this much about affairs of state, and then in a slight german accent asked "...it seems you are well versed in our affairs goblin, so now, how would you go about it then...", "...um well..." to which the goblin picked off a bit of wax from the candle to buy time to put clearly then, and then explained "...no, your majesty I confess that it cannot be done in this day and age like that, but if it's any consolation to you, I've seen the future now, where there will be another george who will catch your colonists off-guard, by simply compiling in a three hundred page bill with exactly these same clauses, calling it the patriot act whereupon submitting it of their parliament giving their legislators a mere fifteen minutes to read it, knowing full well that no could of course, whereupon they will just pass it into law, whence a history of tyrannical rule will have gone full circle so to speak here, and their rebellion would have been entirely pointless...", which was when the goblin woke up from this dream here, while outside it was still dark, and yet, looking out across the rooftops of the great city now, somehow the goblin just wondered if he alone was the only one awake amongst the hundreds who slept on still

"...well what I found hard there was, that there would be something in inverted commas that then it turned out not be actual speech, because instead it was just someone's thoughts, so the speech and thoughts came across jumbled together..." mentioned the goblin who used inverted commas only for thinking, or for quotes, concepts, etc., whereas for speech he used something else, saying "...don't know, what do I use for speech then...", the narrator looked back at the goblin looking dumbfounded, thinking "ellipsises, that stupid dots system you cretin goblin piece of..., forget it, btw could I become someone else's narrator here please, well at least someone slightly more normal now", "...anyway, where was I then, oh yes, actually I can't remember what those grammar-naz*s call it now, you know something written between "... ...", there's a name of it somewhere...", at which point the narrator is trying to disown the goblin once more, thinking "cretin, I just don't understand how these writer's forums put up with him even, can't they hold some sort of sanity test or something, place a minimum mental requirement benchmark on registering, oh and another thing I'm not some dumb harlequin narrator here, besides, why is it always him that gets to talk anyway, you bet I could say something better than that goblin there", at which point the goblin was just wondering what picture, adding "...yes, my way of writing does seem bit odd but it has its method...", where the narrator simply thought "ah no, I've never met him in my life, honest"

Although menopause itself cannot be avoided, there are ways to make the transition much more smooth and comfortable. There are many resources available that can help you better understand and deal with the events that usher you into this stage of your life."

"...goodie, I'll tell the boss then, getting a day off work perhaps to have a chat with the doctor now..." mentioned the goblin in high hopes, adding "...besides, nothing wrong with me, I am just perfectly goblin..."

Hello Goblin

("...always enjoy your posts then, and I like this forum very much..." replied the goblin appreciating his readership here, adding "...I understand the impermenance of everything around me too, but that what makes it special for we only ever have this now between us, and yet we keep on at it...")

repost from elsewhere, writer's forum, the goblin's opinion not going down too well, the ban came later

Quote
I see your post as expressing your own unique view, flea. Helpful is questionable bearing in mind what the purpose of this site is. Primarily it's for workshop and critique and if those elements weren't here then no site would exist for you to post on.

"...no, I think it's getting people to actually write, period whether that be fiction/nonfiction/poems/prose/posts or whatever, is the primal motivation on this forum, where nowhere is it mentioned that the sole purpose of this forum is solely to would be writers to write novels here, especially where the fragmentation of writing techniques due to this internet is upon us..." replied the goblin, seeing clearly now that if he followed that old model then he, like most of his writing contemporaries here, would soon be facing the law of diminishing returns again, especially when more and more people were replacing their reading time with online time, so if anything, rather than trying to gag the goblin for stating some rather obvious fact, if you could come up with counter argument against the one that books are fast being sidelined here, someone reading this, would benefit, and then the goblin thought he had better clear up the other inept poorly hidden barb of "own unique view", which tried to infer that those views that were plural, merely because the were plural then, somehow made them correct, saying "...any view is one's opinion, where all views should be uniquely one's own reached through reason, where no opinion regardless of however many people believed it to be so, actually made it the truth, so I should be thanking you for your compliment then, btw as someone entrusted with the buttons, you hold it within your power to warn me again, to continue to delete my posts and lock my threads too, even to ban me outright now, where all I have is a mind that thinks for itself, a voice that speaks outs, and a pen that writes honestly, I simply accept my fate form you each time, because you'll read this again I promise..."

("...it doesn't matter, facebook is one type of readership where forumland is another, simply I prefer the anonymity of this forumland here..." mentioned the goblin who had no face nor age, adding "...I guess a livewriter simply builds his readership around him regardless of where he is, and besides, I need this forum as a place to air/edit/backup my posts...", in fact, the goblin went slowly here, perhaps one post every few days but always in some continuous dependable flow, for pace was just one of those things one learns through the practice, and yes, being anonymous this became a practice so to speak)

repost from elsewhere, part of the learning curve

and then the goblin turned the focus on himself a moment, and jokingly said "...me, I am suffering my internetself now, knowing that I am caring about the wrong sites for the wrong reasons, in that I like posting my better stuff to friendly forums like here, yes, but I'm also posting to on near hostile ones, my biggest stress comes from a writer's forum where my point is proved and my readership gained, and yet, it doesn't endear me to them for all their reading it, where if I were to retreat from there now, my work would be undone with that barb of "see, he ran out of posts so he left", so I feel a victim of my success and shunned by it too, the readership prize going to usurper there, me as king troll then, hardy what I had in mind when I started out..."

Fleamailman... I don't understand half of the things you ever say. But you are awesome. Just sayin'.

"...whoops sorry, I was being intellectual there, got carried away again, my bad perhaps..." replied the goblin somehow forgetting that most people on this save munchkinland support forum, smf here, were either diehard gamers or long dead mommies, adding "...no, what I need to do is to come up with posts that accommodate both types of posters now, perhaps writing about some kick-a*rse cut-throat housewife that can choose between hurling fragmentation fruit jars, or stung grenade soap-powder packs across a detailed supermarket map, together with hacks to extra lifepoints and credits on purchases then...", yes, in fact, the goblin would do anything to be more accommodating to readers tastes here

In the case of Egypt, recent events are in reality beyond the influence and control of the White House admin.

Oh I don't know, the U.S. pays for 1/4 of the Egyptian military. That's quite a bit of leverage. Could have been an important factor as to why their military decided to no longer support Mubarak. And no, Mubarak did not hand over power to the military, the military was his power.

"...trust the monkey to use the cat's paw to get the hot chestnut out of the fire..." replied the goblin borrowing that maxim to press his point then, adding "...the 1973 oil embargo has already shown who calls the shots here, and yes, I would like to see what would happen if america went against the saudi's wishes in this matter, besides america is as good as bankrupt now, so the egyptian military only has to side with the saudi's, for simply it's follow the money time where he who pays the piper with petrol credits..., ...", in fact, america is conveniently claiming that it has been caught off-guard again, yet true or false though, it's mindset is always appeasing and balancing isreali/saudi requirements here, something that translates into votes on the one hand and petrol on the other, it's oil/vote dependence is like obvious

Forums are for fun. Getting published is for serious. I don't see evidence of the publishing world being in deep decline. Writers will always be needed to bring information to the masses. As long as I think I can do that, and be paid for my trouble, I'll work it.

"...one click on the lupusbot's forum soon nips that forums are for fun conjecture in its bud..." replied the goblin, where there were many very real and serious forums out there too, adding "...forumland is still in its infancy so of course most writers are still oblivious to where readers are flocking to, but given the choice between being offered a downloadable pdf file as an ebook, or actually conversing with the author here, readers like myself too would rather go with the flow exploring the growing potential of forumland, against that declining publishing world that is, so please don't shoot the messenger just because I'm pointing out what so evidently is, and of course I wish it was otherwise, but they're here now, we're here too, why, because you want to converse, and you can't converse with that book, no, at best you can converse about books on forumland...", in fact, the goblin had never met a writer who didn't know that the publishing world was in sharp decline, saying "...look, if you don't write for forumland, your readers will read someone else's works here in your place, it's that simple..."

Goblin, you're missing the point. Yes, serious subjects are discussed on forums, and yes, they're interactive, which a book isn't. So? It's not either/or. I don't get paid for posting on forums, and I don't get off by posting in a particular style on hundreds of forums, as you obviously do. I don't care if I make an "internet presence" -if I did, I'd put my name and links to my books in my sig. And I'm not going to find whole, great information and stories like what I recently bought below on any forum. I don't count free chapters of fantasy crap on some unpublished writer's blog as worth reading. If that's all we end up with because publishing is on a decline, the velocity of our dumbing-down is going to increase with lightning speed.

"...ah now, I like that post, proves you've been holding back on us, even if I feel the truth to be the opposite, in that, walk into any bookshop and it's the publishing world has lots of fastbuck books by crap authors, whereas forumland, because it has no financial incentive, leaves readers to make their own choices upon the merit of what one is reading, and so no, this is not dumbing down, for you only have to look at the posts on this thread alone to see if anything our minds are sharpened by our mudslinging, whoops, correspondence then..." mentioned the goblin, adding "...but you are right though, I did see my mother, for all her wealth and ability, go mentally inactive and socially disengaged just like so many other old like her, till she drowned alone in merlin's cave, simply, "livewriters feed" and I will be known by my posts now, promise, or at least I will know myself by those same posts then..."

where did everyone go? we used to have a big bunch of regulars coming in here and chatting and carrying on, now I come here and no one is ever here.real boring and not motivated to try to keep coming here . sad, used to be fun and you could vent and laugh and help each other. I have asked several times where is everyone and no one says anything.all the work done to put all this together and now no one comes and stays long enough to say squat.just plain sad....

"...if you want this forum to succeed, make one thread and take responsibility for it, feeding it slowly with one's own posts..." suggested the goblin, adding "...you see, everyone is too busy, meaning most new threads will probably go unviewed anyway, whereas any post to an established thread will be seen by each person who has previous posted to it, and a high hitcount becomes another pull too, so you'll know where to find me and I always reply there too, but in my selfishness I post on, in that thread, regardless of whether anyone else posts period, as my motivations are clear to me, so why do you post on forumland where forumland is but a profitless wilderness, and where the others around you are really not here at all, for in effect we all post alone with our thoughts to a slot on a screen where the rest can't be proven, but if you know why you post then you have found your purpose within this wilderness then, and the wilderness is yours for the posting on, that's why perhaps..."

Facebook is a form of modern madness:

What do you think?

living next to an old age home, and still haunted by those memories of his mother surrounded by a bunch of lone silent old folk parked forgottenly in front of a droning television, the goblin's attitude remains one that normal socializing ill serves the old here, saying "...and perhaps facebook is not the answer either, since facebook too is very dependent on visuals such as one's looks and status, etc., so just give me forumland, let me hide my age and looks for their superficial irrelevance to our communication now...", in fact, since the goblin was the only one in the bistro this wet dull gray morning, he had asked the owner to turn off the pop music for once, whereupon a silence reminiscent of a library had taken over from there then, yet within this silence his mind eagerly raced across those written words typed upon the open slot once more, saying "...so why shout when you can talk, and why talk when you can write it down, and why just write when you can readily communicate it across forumland, yet I can still shout where need be, but do I really need to shout where you can hear my voice clearly through these words you read of me..."

You should've joined the Diplomatic Corps.

It's wonderful, instead of being taken at face value. An idea is created to answer for what appears, and while it's easier to speak simply. One hides behind a poetic nature in attempts to reveal the meme, why not simply ask for the purposed intent?

enjoying the post, the goblin turned to xxxxx's question, explaining "...well the trick is to store one's posts each time, that's all I guess, so one turns this transient nature of forumland into something more meaningful and reflective of oneself, where perhaps too, if one does store one's posts somewhere, an outline of who one is can be glimpsed through those posts then...", in fact, the goblin had noted the way many an author had used narration and illustration to bring their works alive, and had simply felt that the same thing could be done in posts too, adding "...you see, one's persona is not fettered by dailylife's considerations here, simply innerman is allowed to grow from posting on like this, while one's outterman still has to deal with whatever its aging fate holds in store for him, but they are both facets of oneself where neither owns one entirely..."

the goblin appreciated xxxxx both for his astute observations, his quick mind and for his compassion too, saying "...well actually anything to get a reply now, not that anyone would ever accuse me of being an attentionwhoxre or anything, just that I like to do rather inconspicuous posts under some cloak of anonymity for posterity's sake here, while failing miserably at it, that's all...", yes, somehow the goblin bore this mantle of prestigious posting with fortitude and foreboding hoping that readers here, and normal people alike, would excuse him his indulgence here

"...depends..." replied the goblin, continuing "...I mean wouldn't that be kind of letting the side down, and betraying one's own latent intelligence now if one confessed it, so no, I imagine the best thing would be just be to say that one's finger somehow slipped under the words followed by a sudden yet overwhelming urge to just pronounce syllables out loud for no reason at all, but that no, in fact you weren't actually reading these posts here, only doing what writers do best, that is actually admiring at the pictures each time, it'll remain our secret if you like..."

repost from elsewhere, mummy baiting again, never fails

noting that the furtive mind had now scampered off, the goblin, aware that the show should continue still, somehow swallowed his pride and accepted from the mommies their comments once more, saying "...look, I'm on your side here, I know you've been holding back on me just because you think I'm new and all that, but somehow I can tell when you're just dying to tell me about which washing powder can save the world from those dire stubborn stains, and, since I do try to accommodate all posting levels here on my "last post" thread, no doubt I will relish the prospect of both that topic, and that other one of course of how the height, type and color of a pair of shoes that can actually change one's world outlook now, as acceptable topics in our future conversations, in fact I can assure you that you'll have my unwavering attention at all times..."

I can't wait until tonight, although I'm tired.

"...yes, that's definitely the kind post will make sense to those who understand it..." replied the goblin, adding "...the rest of us will just use our imaginations intuitively...", where images of tall sailing ships burst romantically though undulating waves of passion to the return of hubby from work, he goblin imagined, saying "...yes I was young once too, and to know what it was to have a wife that awaited me..."

what got you first interested in writing

"...well I guess one just fights past defeats I suppose..." mentioned the goblin ever as a dyslexic still, where all those repeated failures, of youth and before then even, had left him ever in need of a bitter coffee and a cutting pen perhaps, saying "...guess one can't change one's spots and run away from habitual writing now, any more than I could be someone else at the time, that's all, so it's thank god for forumland at least...", in fact, the goblin had been clearing out the cave today, more precisely a collection of books that no one seemed to want, real classics that he couldn't even give away to anyone at this point, adding "...so I guess the question is not how I became interested in writing then, which is ever "no where else to go I suppose, I just was habitual as in me to begin with", no, the question remains, how do I interest an increasingly non book-reading reader to read me still, well that's what actually interests me now, and what I'm up against too..."

Do not post comments that contain bad spelling, or Grammar. This practice becomes the norm after a time. Making comments on others work sharpens your own skills. Steel sharpens steel.

and then the despicable goblin showed up, read through the posts, agreed entirely and just said "...um, well you're right of course, but then again, it's such fun being forumland's best example of "how not to write" now, where too, I seriously doubt that I would have my present readership if I had actually written well to begin with, no, more likely I probably would have just published a novel like everyone else does, and then seen myself in terms of books alone like most writers do, but no, this way, remaining anonymous that is, I am forced to put my all into my posts alone, where I also understand that books and posts are two mediums apart requiring adaptation towards their respective readers, and in the case of posts their disrespective readers...", at which point the goblin just went "...ok, hands up all those whose heart sinks at seeing a long post like this one then, um, well folks, you're not going to hit it off with writers if you think like that, why, because they actually write volumes..."

"...hard to say what my happiness is any more, not that I am unhappy, only that it always seems something in the context of that which is around it..." mused the goblin at least happy to have found this thread then, adding "...perhaps one of my happinesses is a build-up I see within myself, how during the day my posting seems all clever, attentive, and responsive to others, and how just it continues into the evening where at some point something else takes over now, and the slot in front of me seems to become a path where I'm slowly walking within these written words, at times retracing my steps perhaps, but going somewhere all the same, this then is my journey to self, till finally at some point just before the sandman shows, the clock slows its ticking, and in that moment one knows that this is it all that it is, but one also knows that this really is everything too, for here is the self that was trying to reach all along..."

and with that the goblin showed, read through the posts and felt he was onto something, saying "...on forumland the choice is a simple one, that of either becoming an anonymous peter pan, or of being some known wendy, where wendy grows old that is..."
But my dear friend, isn't growing old growing at least?

"...a friend I am, yet I see you've been talking to goblins again, steady now, bad idea, they're not to be trusted you know, but, whereas in dailylife one has no choice about it, on forumland one has that choice, so for me, I'd like to grow something other than simply old..." replied the goblin, adding "...and since nothing here can be proved at all, what is the point, and where is the need, of one's dailylife mask now, one's mask by fate perhaps, but a mask all the same...", the goblin guessed that any self portrayal was unlikely to be as objectively honest as perhaps how others around him would see him, so that just saved the goblin from drawing the line about himself, by having no line at all, observing "...it's quite simple, an ageless faceless goblin on forumland, masks an old fart in his dailylife, who in turn masks an ageless faceless goblin within him too, so now, do you judge something by its appearance or by its contents where perhaps both are the two sides of the same coin here..."

Should society expect you to work all your life?

"...no, I don't know what society expects..." replied the goblin, continuing "...only that I do know that it becomes a growing problem within it, in that most people are living longer, where often their minds can't keep up with their bodies, and where generally the two ideas of mentally active and socially engaged are not address enough by them during their working years, hence the two biggest killers of the elderly are a maladjustment to retirement, and a surrender to lethargy...", simply, to the goblin work was far more than mere matter of finances here, it was a social network of sorts, and hopefully a mental challenge too, whereupon the goblin just added "...ah no, I repeat that I have no idea if society intends one to work all one's life, yet somehow, through its lack of spelling out this problem clearly, one might be forgiven for thinking that it doesn't mind your dying in your maladjustment to retirement now, so it's this forumland or those social networks to the rescue here, for are we not kept mentally active and socially engaged by this..."

morning, and the goblin's wish to be ever on line is matched by the pulls of dailylife, saying "...everything bows to this internet now, less television viewing, less book reading, less social engagements, etc., all done on line now, this is the direction in which things are going and yet, if one looks across forumland, it's still very much "read here about stuff elsewhere", that is many posts are about books or television or social events in dailylife, but forumland is not as yet a respected entity in itself...", so perhaps it was with this understanding then, that forumland was perhaps misconceived, underrated, or ignored, that the goblin had decided to write directly in posts now, knowing that the potential readership across forumland rivaled that of a publication, where as it was, the goblin could do a post on some forum and receive a hundreds of hits to it, not that the readership in itself changed anything to the goblin who was ever anonymous, no, but even under his cloak of anonymity he still felt a sense of audience that encouraged him on by it, saying "...so I suppose my role on forumland is just to wake people up into seeing their posting as actually something worthy on their pens now, not here about elsewhere anymore..."

"Goblin!" shouted xxx as she recognised this wonderful writing technique. It was a sad day for her when she realised that the goblin had escaped the world of xxxxxx forum without a goodbye. She left him with thoughts of wellbeing and hoped he would continue his talented writing journey. "It is wonderful to see you. I hope you are well?" she asked. "Why did you leave us", she questioned, hoping he would understand that his writing is missed. "Take care my friend, I am sure we will meet again in the land of words."

"...yes xxxxx, I got told that my act was graffiti there, given an ultimatum to conform or else, and then removed without trace when I didn't, something that happens often enough with me on writing forums, so it's a good thing that I always backup my posts and PMs elsewhere beforehand, where anyway I simply challenge anyone to find a malicious post of mine, it's just not my style at all..." mentioned the goblin who often rubbed those narrow minded writertypes, together with their declining writing establishment, the wrong way by merely pointing out that the literary emperor wears no posts and has absolutely no hitcount to prove it, saying "...you see, we are all equal here, simply on forumland one just is one's posts, so should I really give some credence to something that one doesn't actually see directly within these posts, I mean must one always be writing on forumland for their declining elsewhere, can't I just livewrite here instead, after all, after facebook and twitter forumland is the third growing sector in reading now...", at which point the goblin just flung the whole memory of that silly misadventure to the back to his mind on a pile of other misadventures, concluding "...ah no, parthian shots and subplots are for the small minded, for I am both happy and welcome here, so my graffiti continues, simply it's lights camera and goblintime once more, forumland is just amazing isn't it..."

"...do you remember the film where the two bounty hunters shoot at each other's hats, when clint eastwood first shots the old man's hat off his head, so the old man goes to pick his hat only to have it shot further away the moment he reaches down for it, so the old man goes and tries to pick up his hat where repeatedly it just shot away again, till finally the hat lands out of range, whereupon the old man picks up his hat and is able to do multishots at clint eastwood's hat..." mentioned the goblin arriving at the point, saying "...well let's just say that which was begrudged me elsewhere is now what you see here, and if you like what you see, where no one is asking you to see them, then know too, that I have barely started editing something which must run into thousands of posts by now but imagine if I had actually lost hope and given up with those tedious comments, deletions and final ban then, or caved in and conformed to his requirements of me, simply I signed the pact with the muse's, my promise is to her alone, so now I pick up my hat, dust it off, and place it firmly back on my head today..."

"Ah... perhaps..." the salient observer said whilst still remaining hidden behind the shadows that shielded him, "perhaps, though I'm not sure yet, perhaps... the Goblin's ultimate goal after all of this is... WORLD DOMINATION! Yes! Indeed! That can be the only logical explanation!! After all this posting the Goblin would've finally succeeded in brainwashing the weak minded denizens of the internet into believing that he was some sort of God amongst the mortals by posting relentlessly and showing to the world that he, and only he, who could according to some previous posts also be a she, is the one and only person's whose voice must be heard." The observer observed this and decided that he must be the one to warn the others. He set out on his arduous task immediately. The world must know the truth! It's not too late as of yet.

and with that the goblin welcomed the salient observer back to the land of insomnia, saying "...missed you actually, whereas if you had been the remotest bit normal I wouldn't have I imagine, nor noticed your absence either, but no, world domination sounds like too big a responsibility for me, so no, let's just settle for world recognition of my anonymity instead, I mean becoming some real known unknown sounds cool doesn't it..."

"...mostly correct, but then you must asks yourself why, I mean, could it be that the username fleamailman is purposely left unique making it easy to find when googled, that the writing style hides one's identity while stopping others from claiming one's works as their own, could it be too, that a uniform persona across forumland gains one a better readership, aka feeding pool now, not forgetting that the persona of a goblin is actually remembered, whereas no one will remember you because you haven't cottoned on to product marketing yet..." replied the goblin who felt this rapport to be lively enough now, something like being on stage perhaps, adding "...I'm not here agreed, but the difference between livewriting and bookwriting is that in bookwriting it's one way from author to reader, where in livewriting it two ways, as in that you are feeding me my post here, but the old goblin had appreciated the post thinking xxxxx had talent..."

"...I know it's important to face the slot like this, where one improves with the practice of it.." mentioned the goblin, very appreciative of what he had read this evening, knowing too, that this edit thread was just that, a chance to finalized one's posts into something while one still could, where his editing would just continue again in the morning, adding "...I guess I'm just like you then, trying to write my lot out of me, trying to do justice to these ghosts of the past in a court of one's own conscience, yes, endless deliberation to finally settle it for good, witness against counter witness then, trial going on to retrial, well that's our past isn't it, where the sentence was carried out long ago, but where the queen of hearts from somewhere within one is shouting to the king "ah no, sentence back then, verdict now"...", and with that the night had caught up with the goblin once more, whereupon the court would simply adjourn till it caught the goblin in his next unguarded moment, where it would all restart once more and then the goblin laughed, asking "...ok, so I wanted to become a livewriter, so now, how does one unbecome being one..."

"...ah no, that was some other goblin now, where this goblin doesn't know him at all, promise, where if you leave a description now, I'm sure I could keep an eye for you just in case I ever come across him..." ventured the goblin moments before the sandman showed with a big sack marked goblin on it, adding "...anyway, first you'll need to talk to moddy to get that frying pan, afterwards you join the queue I suppose...", and with that the goblin felt that he was making progress, yes indeed, anything to help the advancement of literature on forumland he felt, saying "...am I not on you side now humans, for do I not in my humble way keep reminding you all, that you're actually here amongst your readers now, and not writing for them elsewhere anymore..."

the goblin, unable to use his intellect to better intent, does the laundry observing that those few flakes of snow, that flutter, which the goblin hoped had passed this afternoon, now turned themselves into a full blown storm, the house echoes to gunfires as his son shoots people on the playstation while the goblin himself, trying to be out of jittery earshot, types somewhat shell-shocked in the bedroom, somehow the goblin knows that, on seeing this text here, he will look back with fondness at yet another poignant moment on his journey to self, so he quickly wrote this reminder to himself, writing "ah no goblin, you're actually miserable now" somehow knowing it'll never work then, and that this moment however awful will become yet another fond memory to him

Hello, Everyone. After looking at myself within this forum for the first time it seems like a nice fit! I am a writer, hoping to get so many works out of my head and onto the page, well not page but uhm... well you get the point I also enjoy reading. I am looking forward to spending many hours in here!

and with that the goblin showed, saying "...well, you've done the right thing human, for there is much here for all types now, where your progression, from that of some simple potted plant stuck in front of a keyboard, might indeed progress into that of a lampshade with its light on full even, yet a lot depends upon your diligence and imagination here, so come post with us then, for the road to becoming an accomplished daydreaming lampshade is a long and arduous one but we are here to help you in your transformation from being normal into being more like us instead..."

repost from elsewhere, the writer's forum, goblin doing a welcome

"...ah, I like your writing style already human, much originality it seems, so welcome to our forum/venue here..." went the goblin looking forward to yet more to read perhaps, adding "...you see, at first, everybody wants to practice their writing here for that publishing elsewhere, until slowly they see that it's actually here in fact that everyone else is turning up to read their works directly, so the username becomes synonymous with authorname where each post one does becomes yet another work by you to those readers, save that there aren't any those reader here, no, they're all these readers now as in us perhaps...", merely the goblin imagined that more and more readers are coming to this forum to follow their preferred author or build up some rapport with them now, adding "...so no, this isn't some bootcamp forum to practice ever so correct writing niceties for that publishing elsewhere, far from it, it's the battlefield itself, so good luck with your posts now as your readers surround you here where you are very much these posts to them..."

repost from "trumping the writer stereotype" thread here, finished

Quote
I've worked with a lot of writers, and the one thing they all have in common is that they're nothing like that. 99.9% of writers are ordinary people. 0.1% make headlines.

the goblin agreed since he imagined that both psychopaths and schizophrenics shared that same normalness with the writertypes here, where to all intents and purposes, indeed they looked and acted quite normally, and yet, under certain circumstances their true nature would suddenly burst through resulting in dead bodies and inexplicable behavior in the former, and write-ups about dead bodies and inexplicable behavior in the latter, yes those thrillers and mystery novels then, in fact, the goblin often had difficulty trying to picture what was the norm amongst humans anyway, saying "...somehow the more normal it gets the more surreal it becomes..."

repost from elsewhere, the "introductions" here, where someone whose post had held the goblin to her penmanship

"...welcome to one of the best forum/venues on forumland then..." went the goblin weighing his words slightly, knowing that something misunderstood was often worse than actual silence, whereupon the goblin carefully continued his conjecture, saying "...isn't the nature of writing changing, where the readers of books are increasingly seeking out their authors on forumland, something more as a challenge than threat, and where many an author might have to hem their posts away from that mindset of serious bookwriting against frivolous posting, simply the forum/venue becomes a back stage-door to the author here, where the gap, between the author himself, his works, and the readers around him, is gone with rapport between us...", whereupon the goblin, checked the number of lines to keep the post as concise to the eye as possible, and then finally said "...my bet is that a livewriter can journey across forumland in an amazing adventure, using each forum as his venue then, well I felt that you could be one of them, thus I welcomed you here, and yet perhaps too, a livewriter is just one poster amongst the many amongst the millions out there, I mean that the odds against one succeeding on forumland are so wondrous that they alone make this challenge somehow all the more worth it..."

hi there.. what is it that you like about it. I don't know it...must look it up

"...ah now, that might get me in hot water for my heresy here..." replied the goblin, adding "...but it turns life into a journey to self within one rather than all that external go to church, pay your tithes, and blindly follow cause he says so...", as the goblin then remembered the line If you bring forth what is within you, what you have will save you, whereas if you do not have that within you, then what you do not have within you will destroy you, whereupon the goblin just added "...so I always harp on about the difference between me and my dailylife in my posts but that's simply because I know that it is within me still, where the romans would have me build a church or something, and o how they must have hated the gnostics then, for what need have gnostics on a journey to self for that which they leave behind them..."

"...ah but no one actually dies on forumland, only that they stop posting..." mentioned the goblin, while outside the bistro the evening's snow had continued since morning-time as a blanket of white firmly besieged the village of chamonix, where naturally the biggest fear, written upon everyone's minds, was at what point would all this snow conjure up that christmas carol music, yes, even one false thought or innocent recollection and the scene would be awash with bing crosby singing "I'm squatting in your brain mortals", the goblin vetted his thoughts carefully now, saying "...it's the time of year that we all live in fear of our sanity going christmushy...", and yes, somewhere out there too, in the looming darkness now, cunning santa was once more beginning to turn those humans into christmas zombies where his subtle extraction of their brains continued apace, unnoticed perhaps but more likely unmissed now

“...odd isn't it...” started the goblin going through the list in his mind once more, continuing “...so, the spanish empire, for all its new world silver, still ended up spent and listless by the end of that long dutch war of independence, and where too, the french royal empire had emptied its coffers by supporting the colonist's in their war of independence, and yet again when the european empires became totally indebted during the first world war, and when the soviet block too fell apart both penniless and spent after afghanistan, and now finally it's america turn after iraq now, where seems enslaved by a financial usurpation from within and a humbug of own self serving rhetoric...” mentioned the goblin not proposing for a moment that any of these bankruptcies, nor these bottomless debts, nor wars either, actually ended the empire outright, no, more simply that they underscored their end of prominence here, their lack of any real motivation, and that they were all but discredited, concluding “...well, in the end it's probably this same discredification of the old way/s, and slide from prominence too, that bodes ill for all those if any who would dream of some “new world order” for mankind here, where each empire in its turn had been like some great tower of babel, one that had simply collapsed under its own discredited weight...”

and with that the goblin had somehow guessed that by now that everyone had forgotten that this was in fact xxxxx's introduction here, saying "...welcome then, look, I'm awfully sorry about the others here, no, they mean well I'm sure, only that they're writertypes, where I suspect the writertype too needs to be introduced to you newbies here, well then, a writertype is rather like a troll, save that the big difference between him and a troll is that the troll actually knows he's a troll, whereas the writertype has yet to stumble upon that self-realization, resulting in his invariably going off on long tangent called a soliloquy, leaving the rest of humanity, moreover other creatures too, completely amazed that anyone can write this much, and worse, that others, perhaps to their better judgement even, actually read this far too, where of course you're thinking that there must be something wrong with the reader now, and where probably you're asking yourself too, why o why has no one ever come up with a sign marked don't feed the writertypes...", "...well perhaps goblin, that's because those writertypes know how to feed themselves by now..." went the muted chorus in the background

“....so the federal reserve, which isn't even american then, agrees to buy the toxic debts of the banks on condition that the banks in return then buy back the same amount in treasury bonds, a simple swap it sounds, well not quite is it...” mused the goblin seeing this repackaging of a debt under a different name meant that instead of the banks defaulting through their own debts now, it would be america who either defaults or devalues in their place, so the goblin just sighed “...war is on the cards, and who wants war, no one I guess, and yet how else can these powers that be hide this theft without such an intense distraction here, where who actually wins doesn't matter as the banks always hedge their bets by lending to both sides, and where whoever gets killed in throwing the dice of war is not really their their concern neither as their goal is to control the state by controlling its finances, the age of bank control was just de factto now, meaning that the sovereign state was what then, and meant what exactly, where and when just a handful of banks controlled the finances within the system of that state today...”

Hey, fleamailman, I have a question for you.  How much time did you invest in this thread?

"...very little..." replied the goblin, explaining "...the reposts are simply air/edit/backup now, where each time I repost something it gets feedback, while I get to edit it too, and where it becomes a backup should something happen to the original...", yet nothing actually mattered by it, in that he was anonymous and had been banned and so many times with his threads/posts had been erased too, that he had arrived at an understanding now, a madness perhaps, that it was not so much what resulted form posting as gaining the ability to do post in itself that counted, saying "...think of this as the reader seeing the footprints of a creature that the author sees, the author writes hoping that his pen will capture the contours of the creature knowing that the creature is never caught by it, just it's that practice of capturing that the author is trying to perfect within himself each time...", and that was all it ever was he supposed, yet that all was everything too

If it does decently I will go on and write another book. I am here looking for any advice, opinions etc... Feel free to contact me with ideas.

"...perfectly understandable..." replied the goblin noting how fewer and fewer people wanted to read at length anyway, where the goblin seemed no different from anyone else then, or at least no different from the majority of humans he came across in dailylife out there or upon forumland here, adding "...so if you yourself don't want to read where most people don't want to read neither, doesn't that kind of leave a threefold choice of giving up, or continuing bookwriting, or this livewriting then...", where the goblin's being a livewriter meant that he wrote upon a medium that everyone was increasingly reading, for his posts were short enough not to demand too much from the reader though with enough substance to merit his writing them, and becoming quite known anonymously in the process, concluding "...I mean if you want to spend months writing something that you'll then sell on amazon for 99cts, then surely flipping hamburgers would pay a better return for one's efforts, moreover, that ebooks world is saturated with ebooks already where today one can simply become known by one's persona upon forumland here, plus forumland is the growing readership between the two readerships isn't it...", whereupon the goblin smiled tapping hard upon the red welcoming carpet turning it green for a far as the eyes could see, completing his welcome then, for all he tried to do was simply to draw those readers towards his pen by way of his posted now, smiling "...nothing to it really, but so overlooked too..."

So I can read your posts goblin, among other things. I mostly just observe..said the prophet of recursions. My rare posts are mostly just to stimulate more for me to read. I agree you can learn a lot about yourself on message boards, especially by how others construe your comments and in thinking about whether to respond and how. I've learned I have an unfortunate way of turning a phrase that annoys many, and my inability to care about their reaction annoys them even more. I find it all both comical and sad that I suspect most perceive their own cyber-persona far differently than others do, and that most seem to be seeking a social context they lack irl. Like the inordinate affection people commonly invest in cats and dogs, I see a certain pathos in this phenomenon but only time will reveal the damage done versus advantages attained. So what have you learned about yourself posting, the prophet asked the goblin. Have you made any real friends along the way? Might there be a better way to enhance your self realization than posting? eta: What movie is the picture you posted before your reply to me from? Know I've seen it but can't recall title.

"...friendship within anonymity is a hard one to prove, but I do befriend those who are not hostile and I encourage anyone who wishes to post to do so, plus I respect and admire those whose posts feed me, where for example when xxxxx described that other forum as being a real party but on one's best behaviour now I knew it not only to be true but also that that analogy was new to me and perfectly put..." mentioned the goblin, adding "...back to the photo from "death in venice" in my previous post, I guess the goblin is the young man in the background who happens to be looking at the old man in the foreground who is writing this text now, the dailylife wendy against the an ageless peter pan if you like, so the persona is a projection, an ultra ego by default then, yet still a fictional me for the knowing, perhaps it's all about the mes here, me and other me..."

what can my livewriter persona be!

"...just start writing in third person, where after a while when you'll get so fed up with writing said the person who is writing this each time you'll come up with something that feels comfortable with and personifies you to others here..." mentioned the goblin knowing that no one would remember a username and yet for example who could forget meeting a goblin, explaining "...so the use of an easy to remember persona frees one from needing an easy to remember username meaning that instead that one's username could be used to bring up your other threads when googled, but I don't know, perhaps you don't want to become known by your posts, perhaps you don't believe anyone can pull it off, nor even that it is possible neither, whereas me, I don't care, I'm just go down trying for I've only myself stopping me now..."

"...oh the usual stuff, I was plotting the downfall of humanity in the bistro as usual only to realize that, to all intents and purposes, they didn't really need my assistance being perfectly capable of their own demise without me now..." mused the goblin rubbing on his chin while downing a coffee and admiring the sunny day outside, just trying to think of something intellectually awe-inspiring worth relating to the very readers here whom he also imagined probably didn't really go in for those sort of posts anyway, saying "...ah yes, you see how I suffer don't you, but I guess it's only human after all, I mean you are probably human aren't you, unless you're one of those writertypes who do look very similar indeed, but whom, I very much suspect, have taken some evolutionary misturn somewhere, where they're all waiting to rediscovered I imagine..."

"...basically, either I reply to a post, or come up with something to post, like everyone else here does I imagine..." mentioned the goblin, adding "...but then if I like what I have written I store it away elsewhere too, replacing any username or forumname with xxxxx or xxxxxforum in it place just to keep the work anonymous, after which, I then look around for a picture that either underscores or contrasts the work, and finally I repost the work again to a different forum's edit thread rewording it as I go along and ironing out those typos where spotted...", just that the goblin took his posting life seriously and understood that forumland was like a forest, where being a forest, if one didn't have some strong sense of direction within it one would soon lose one's way, those years would pass and many thousands of discarded posts later, one's being here would have meant absolutely nothing with nothing to show for it too, saying "...if one writes, one polishes one's texts and exacts one's ideas to oneself in doing so, storing the external result upon the forum itself and the internal lesson within one being as if on a journey to self here perhaps, but either way then, the time passes and the muse does not forgive those who discard their posts here, for their fate is well deserved..."

repost from elsewhere, goblin doing the welcome on a writer's forum

"...so good luck with your book there human..." went the goblin in his welcome, adding "...but while your at it you'll write for us won't you, I mean there are more readers here looking for their next read than most other places online and it would be a pity not to entice them towards you by your posts...", and with that the goblin snapped his fingers together to reveal a red carpet lined with snapping paparazzi leading to a black limousine whose awaiting door was held open by the man of her dreams who had promised no doubt take her shopping for those very shoes that other women would just die for but more likely kill for, "...yes but what if xxxxx turns out to be a man goblin..." intervened the slot upon hearing the goblin's intro here, "...well I don't know slot, how about we just offer him coffee and donuts instead then..." retorted the goblin, adding "...no, let's play safe then, we'll offer the human coffee and donuts together with those shoes now...", "...brilliant, but don't make the post too long goblin, you know how, what with this internet here, their agitated state means none of them can read books like they used to...", whereupon the goblin in compliance to the slot's request here just hit the post button again suspecting that nobody in their right mind ever read this far anyway

repost from elsewhere, new, a music forum

"...nah, it gets worse humans..." started the goblin asking to be excused for the way he wrote, then continuing "...in that, due to obamacare most corporations are reducing their low level staff to a 30hours a week employment status, thus avoiding the insurance bill to cover them, resulting in unemployment figures that might look better with less actual work being divided up between more people, yet for the individual concerned it couldn't be worse because often that person then had to work two jobs where the two separate employers who might not wish to share their employee between them...", yet either way then, everyone knew that the american unemployment figures were a farce, where being dropped off the register after two years regardless of whether one had actually found a job could hardly be reflective of the true unemployment figures, whereupon the goblin just sighed, saying "...the only reason why no one sees this as the greater depression of the 2010s as opposed to the great depression of the 1930s is that the media has been corrupted by its paymasters to turn a blind eye towards it and its moral obligation to speak out, not forgetting the fact that those all too obtrusive soup kitchens of yesteryear are now neatly replaced by the unobtrusive food stamps of today, moreover back then it was 1 in 10 who lived in the cities whereas today it's 1 in 10 who doesn't...", simply, it had come to the stage where ourdearmedia was without conscience here, and that something that had started out as too big to fail had then become too big to prosecute and was now too big to mention even, where the goblin felt that the excuse of war would be their next tool to suppress even more unreported dissent at home, that america would in effect move onto a war footage against an enemy, imagined or otherwise, if only to hide the depth of its own shortfall and corruption, so the media would in effect offer the audience what amounted to that audience itself then, while hiding behind that media would be that which actually was that audience's reality without coverage

Since her and I are good friends he asked me to talk to her about it and see what her deal is or to at least try to talk some sense into her since she won't speak to him. Do I help? Do I talk to her?

I know it pretty much sounds like your typical 'military people got married like idiots' thing, but these 2 were crazy in love and it showed and her husband still feels this way about her. But it's like she hit a light switch and changed overnight.

"...and besides, what can you say to her anyway..." inquired the goblin, adding "...aren't you just another voice in their orbit, for your words change nothing in the long run where the truth will out regardless of whichever way you play it then, so instead you should just be cordial without becoming a doormat, listening but without judging or scheming, and above all don't discuss them here if either of them know who you are on this forum...", at which point the slot just interrupted the goblin, saying "...ok, do watch out goblin, you sound much like polonious advising hamlet, where no doubt hamlet will take all your good advice to heart only to then stab you to death for your pains..."

repost from elsewhere, the "I have been hitting my ketchup bottle for 1 hour now and cant get any on my ice cream" thread

What am I doing wrong?

"...nothing wrong at all, my dear friend..." went the goblin welcoming him back from the brink of sanity, continuing "...but then again, clearly as of yet, you haven't contacted those homeland security people to report your suspicious activity there, in that although pouring ketchup upon ice cream is not a misdemeanor in itself, it's hardly normal neither, and thus by being abnormal in the absence of normalcy, it becomes highly suspicious of you doesn't it, perhaps containing some hidden subliminal message for some as of yet unknown terrorist activities elsewhere...", just that the goblin was building up the the idea that the poster, in his wish to aid the homeland security people that is, could offer his icecream to judge napolitano at this point thus keeping america safe from the subversion of this apparent type of suspicious activity, whereupon the goblin went "...now hands up all those in agreement with me then..."

repost from elsewhere, the "what are your views on god or not god" thread

"...I know god..." ventured the goblin, adding "...and yet I don't know what it is I know, just that I know it anyway, and besides I suspect that the nazis were antichristian then in their might is right idea, where one only has to look at the creed of the waffen ss to see where extreme paganism goes, for they too thought themselves to be some chosen people of a master race, so the problem is not whether you know god or don't know him but whether you can maintain your humanity and moderation in either accepting him or rejecting him outright, where alas the voice of moderation within one, as in toleration for alternative views is proof of one's humanity, is a voice that increasingly falling upon deaf ears around one now, for an open mind is a receptive one, blind faith is no faith but blind denial no better neither, so a little bit of doubt is a beautiful thing, why, because in truth no one knows what they know, yet see what happens when they claim to know it all for sure

repost from elsewhere

up before the sun, the goblin sits in the cold room as if accompanied by a small insect that beats against the paper lampshade attracted by the light but lost really, and so it is then, that a pair of shoes in the hallway entrance now announces the final end to hope, the goblin's plans dashed, and although such things were not the goblin's choice anyway, he knew that he would miss his son's ex girlfriend now, suspecting too that she had been too good for him anyway, sighing "...the world of adults is one of lies, thus for the sake of appearances I will welcome his new one with open arms not letting out my true feeling of disappointment, and no it's not the new one's fault as he broke up before her and restarted anew, just time to move on, but perhaps just perhaps this will remind me of my place as a parent where my ephemeral hope is now replaced a solid fear that my disappointment might show and my deception not deceive, just "pain to open the eyes" as they say, she's in his past now...", the goblin turns off the light letting the insect find its own way out in due course

Maybe most writers do this, write in different voices for different purposes I mean. A little while ago I wrote a short story in the first person from the pov of a postman, I once wrote another from the pov of a tree - it wouldn't be very easy to respond on this thread from the pov of a tree. I've long thought that fleamailman's voice is that of a ventriloquist, as if the goblin was a puppet in the hands of a puppeteer. A ventriloquist's dummy can be more provocative, more outspoken, more adversarial perhaps, than the ventriloquist himself could ever be. For some strange reason we do not fully associate the dummy's utterances with the ventriloquist, and so it is with the goblin in some way. I respect fleamailman's choice of this voice and I understand that having chosen it he must then persevere with it or the spell would be broken - much as an actor addressing the audience directly can breach the 'fourth wall'. And so he cannot reveal himself and still maintain the character he has created but he could maintain, and may indeed already maintain, alternate identities on this and other forums. But what seems odd to me is the way that some moronic types expect a writer to somehow emerge from the persona they occupy, as if, underneath, there is some different intelligence lurking. Of course there isn't, you idiots - don't you know that when you address the dummy you are really speaking to the ventriloquist?

musing upon xxxxx's words, suspecting that it was just how xxxxx had related it then, the goblin also understood now that his dailylife self too was a dummy of sorts, sighing "...just I do what is expected of me, either because at my age one can't do otherwise, or just because in my position others are dependent upon my doing as expected, so it's just the role that one acts out in dailylife the for most part, a real compromise if ever there was one...", so it was to this forumland here then that the goblin came for his escape, and yet he knew that if he wanted to write in third person, giving his alter-ego full sway by it, he would have to choose some persona in his stead where this goblin persona originally came from his computer workshop days, even if it had later lent itself adiquately to his temperament while writing here of a creature rebelling against its dailylife self, smiling "...perhaps then, when looking at ventriloquism, one forgets that the ventriloquists too is the second dummy in the act, as in the dailylife self and virtual self, and where perhaps both dummies were ever just representations of some alter-ego who remains elusive behind them of both..."

repost from elsewhere, the "what are the benefits of writing" thread

"...well I suppose it's just passing the essence of one's existence through the focus of one's pen then..." replied the goblin suspecting that sounded slightly better than daydreaming away over a laptop in a bistro to a coffee, and then the music started where that solemn captain kirk unmistakable voice commenced "...imagination, that final frontier, to boldly daydream where no other goblin has ever daydreamed before...", the music together with his coffee propelled his now warped mind at warped speed, just the goblin's imminent escape opened up before him once more where the nigh impossible conquest of forumland was there too, smiling "..ah no, the futility of it is never an issue where one's escape is concerned, for all that ever matters is one's trying to escape still..."

repost from elsewhere, someone announcing their birthday

the goblin felt somewhat envious at this point because he had mislaid his birthday somewhere some point before, saying "...tell you what though, if you can take a little out time why not make a mental note of those birthdays presents you received to date, just that which you got from whomever whenever, and see if you feel inside if you still want to say thank you to them once more, where you do then say "thank you" under your breath and I promise you they'll hear it, more I cannot offer really for more there is not..."

repost from elsewhere, a writer's forum, the "what is the benefit of a writer" thread

"...well, the benefit of a writer has got to be fact that, once placed firmly in front of a computer, there's really very little after care needed, which admittedly can't be said for most other animals from the pet shop these days..." mentioned the goblin showing just how much he cared for the welfare of those around him now, adding "...so then, if you're still thinking of pleasing your spouse with a timely gift, and haven't as yet quite made up your mind as to which one would be most appropriate, then may I just suggest a little something here, something that is more or less house-trained, stays very put indeed, and that writes stoically away for peanuts even, for here would be a great chance to become the proud owner of your very own writertype thus becoming nothing less than the envy of the neighbourhood I imagine..." concluding "...so for all further inquires, please do not hesitate of contact our dear and friendly admin here, who no doubt would be only too happy to unload herself of a few of them at a price now, where I suspect too that a mere twenty dollars would suffice to cover both post and packaging, or would that be asking too much I wonder..."

repost from elsewhere

the goblin in this predawn time posts to hold back his reality still, that of one more looming workday now, but it, like the all too rub-it-in rain too together with that bus-load of miserable captured commuters, followed by the rest even, is still going to happen anyway, save that they warn the goblin, they warn him of what his life could be reduced to if he ever lived life without due reflection upon it and without that imaginative escape too, "...ah but I am not some materialistic machine who only does dailylife's bidding for the sake of those trappings and trinkets..." the goblin retorted to his reality without restraint, continuing "...so keep your "I think therefore I am" for all those short sighted philosophers there, for with me it's "I dream therefore I'm far more than I am"..." for that was the truth of it he felt

Anyone else think religious people shouldn't have the right to breed?

"...and who amongst us gets to decide those fit for life or death now, just that there has always been that might is right mindset of each epoch, whether it's an unmaned flying drone, or some ghetto called the gaza strip, or just burned out churches, etc..." mused the goblin, adding "...ah no, actually I'd rather have someone trying to convert me, than having myself fall short of their base benchmark that spells out my death under lebensunwertes leben...", simple there were corrupted minds in all ideologies, something not exclusive to the religions alone, where communism, fascism, atheism, racism, and capitalism too, have all found it expedient to cull their undesirables, whereupon the goblin just reiterated his standpoint, saying "...blind faith is no faith, utter denial is no better, yes there should be a right to death, but it should be coupled with a right to life too..."

Our files indicate, goblin, that today is your birthday. Congratulations in having survived another circling of the sun.

"...well, I'll never admit it to you that it was my birthday but that could well be the nearest to the truth of all the days going..." smiled the goblin who had bought himself a navibot robot hover, where the captain is a purist and feels that the machine is a threat to her line of command now, and where her goblin just steers the robot back and forth with a remote control in some childish glee, explaining "...yes, I think I decided to buy it when I saw the ad that went "eight out of ten captains said that their goblins actually preferred it to hovering properly"..."
