      Oathbringer Spoiler Policy   11/13/2017

      Oathbringer is out! Let's make our policy on spoilers clear! 1. You must preface topics with Oathbringer spoilers with the prefix [OB] in the front 2. You are only allowed to post spoilers and spoiler topics in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board, Cosmere Theories, and some select work-related forums. 3. For posts in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board you do not need to use spoiler tags inside a topic marked [OB]. For Cosmere Theories, you also do not need to put spoiler tags inside your topic if the topic has [OB] in the title. However, for Cosmere Theories, if you are adding Oathbringer stuff to an old theory without the [OB] tag, those must go in spoiler tags and you must make it obvious outside the spoiler tag that the spoiler is regarding Oathbringer content. 4. For select things that do require talking about OB spoilers, in Events, Coppermind, and Arcanum forums, those are allowed but keep OB spoilers in spoiler tags 5. Avoid and minimize spoilers in topic titles--even though those two boards will not appear in the Recent Topics ticker, topic titles still appear in Recent Activity and the forum home.  6. You aren't allowed to post Oathbringer spoilers in places other than listed, even with spoiler tags.  It will be nine months and then the Oathbringer board will be re-merged with the Stormlight board and you will not need to tag these spoilers. If you'd like to move something in the Stormlight Archive board to the Oathbringer board, to update it with new Oathbringer information, Report the post and we will happily move it to the Oathbringer spoiler board. Part-by-part Reactions Though the Oathbringer Spoiler Board will be very spoilery, very fast (maybe don't come there until you've read the book, as people do have copies that bookstores sold early), you'll have these five topics for reactions if you want to nerd out: Part 1 Reactions
      Part 2 Reactions
      Part 3 Reactions
      Part 4 Reactions
      Full Book Reactions For parts 1-4, they will not include the interludes immediately following it. On Discord All Oathbringer spoilers on Discord will be exclusively in the #oathbringer_spoilers channel for the nine month spoiler period and nowhere else.

Soo... NaNoWriMo is coming up. Anybody here going to try for it? 

Was originally looking forward to it, but I'll be skipping again this year. I'm currently working three jobs; attempting to participate would be masochistic.

Besides, it's been hard enough finding time to work on my current WIP. I owe it to myself to get the novel's second draft wrapped up before the end of this decade. :D

I think I'll go for NaNo this year. The month has enough leisure time for it, and I'm thinking about doing a loosely connected short story collection. Want to partner up for some back and forth updates, Robinski?

Hey Marci, great to hear from you. I still want to read the rest of that story, you know, and I'm not sure I'm willing to wait another 3 years!! If an alpha/beta/delta... whatever-read would be any help to you, drop me a line.

Having you as an alpha reader would be incredible, and it's kind of you to offer. You'll have an email from me soon. :)

I know I'm not around very often (or at all), but I might take NaNoWriMo as an opportunity to get back into serious writing. I've been working on a lot of experimental side projects that I don't think will ever see the light of day, but I'm feeling compelled to finish them and they always go longer than I expect. D: 

Although I do feel @Mandamon's point about getting bad writing when I go too quickly. :) Although joke's on me because I always get bad writing no matter what.  Heh, heh...*smile slowly slides off of face*

But yeah, I hope to give it a try and see how it goes. I have several different novel ideas in mind but I don't think that any of them are as fleshed out as I want them to be at this point... and then there's always organic chemistry to keep up with. *Tears hair out*

Best of luck to everyone else trying NaNoWriMo. :)

If a lot of people are doing it here on RE, we could have an accountability thread or something? Special NaNo thread? Cheer each other on?

Yes, let's do that, @kais - and always happy to friend up on NaNo, where I am R0BINKSI (that's a zero, apparently, there can be only two...)

Hope everyone is doing well! Just wanted to let you all know that while travelling I've finally found my life's calling. I've given up writing and music to start an underwear shop.

Discounts for everyone! *

* Note: I have no ability to actually offer a discount at this random bra shop

Err, isn't it a restaurant (brasserie)? Or is that a play on words (bra-sserie)?

...Huh. You know, I was quite convinced it was an underwear shop, but I honestly don't remember if I actually ever looked in the windows and saw underwear, or if I've just been misremembering the sign this whole time. *rolls eyes* Let's just go with "underwear shop" anyway, because it's funnier. :P
