  1. Yeah... I uh... kinda went there. I ended up somehow, someway in the Supernatural fandom... if anyone is wondering what happened to me over the past few years. Someone donk me on the head. *clears throat* Anyway, if anyone is interested as I have bumped into some old Dukes cronies in the Supernatural Fandom, About a year ago, I wrote a Supernatural Dukes of Hazzard Crossover. It's not one of those new fangled reader insert stories. It's as clean as anything else I've written. It's family oriented. Basically, Sam and Dean Winchester end up in a Modern Hazzard County, probably takes place around 2010. The story is the first part in a Supernatural Series, I do admit to that. I am planning on doing another crossover.... or two... or three... unrelated to the aforementioned. Anywho - the story is titled Days of Future Past. https://kcswritingroom.wordpress.com/xo-ff/days/ And if anyone is interested in my Supernatural Fanfiction - It's all there ( www.kcswritingroom.wordpress.com ):-) Well, except anything i messed up too much to post... and yes, I did set up a link to my stuff on MaryAnne's site with a disclaimer that I do not own that site and it is an external website. ~Enjoy Scoot PS I more go by the pen name KC now a days, but hey... times change.
  2. I think it is too. I'm still catching up with some of the changes that have taken effect over the past year during my latest absence and I was unaware of the rating systems that you have implemented. I had thought the harassment had stopped with my year long absence this most recent time that i was away from the forums, but the second the person noticed my username at the bottom of the page, they immediately shot me a message asking me once again to participate. Prior to my absence, I told this person six or seven times that I was not interested in participating in round robin stories and why. It happens every time they catch me online. I have considered closing off my inbox to avoid it but there are people I do communicate with on here and that would close the lines of communication. I have also considered a hidden status but again, those people i still communicate with sometimes wait until I'm online to message me. I'll message you the name Mufn, but don't be too harsh on them. I was MIA for about a year, although I ain't too certain due to previous behaviors that they forgot my previous requests not to be messaged about stories like that. I mean, I have seriously considered critiquing the stories publicly to get it to stop, but I REALLY don't want to start a war. The first warning should include 20 lashings with a wet noodle LOL. Embarrassing, yes, but it's not painful!
  3. LOL. You're funny. But no, seriously, those are two or three things that just really irk me. I don't know how many times in the past I've logged in and found messages in my in box from people begging me to participate, and I go to read the stories and it's like... I just get a headache trying to read one paragraph, which in and of itself takes over an hour trying to understand. My least favorite requests are the ones where people message me and the only thing I can reply is.... "What did you just say? I don't follow your writing format." I will say this however... Hazzardnet, in the past (i'm not a hundred percent sure of the current author writing situation because I've stopped reading most of it), has had less problems with the "Chat Speak" writing than some of the other websites. The phenomenon of lack of proper sentence and paragraph structure has been something that has evolved and gotten out of hand on most websites over the past five to seven years... and it does occur on here in the stories section. I tried to read one story last night, which shall not be named, where I didn't get past the first paragraph before I gave up due to lack of punctuation and delineation of ideas (See my last post for an example). I enjoy reading the works of children, especially first or second graders because it is simplistic. You need not use long sentences or big words to write a good story... but even a first or second grader knows how to write a sentence, something many authors I have tried to read works by have forgotten somewhere along the way. I adore the little four year old who lives downstairs from me, and yes, even he speaks in actual sentences. If any of this has insulted you, you may write like a two year old. If you write like a two year old telling a story, I will tell you so if you ask for my opinion on your writing. I will not post it publicly, but I will tell you the truth and be brutally honest with you.
  4. I am sure that many of you have noticed I stopped participating in round robin stories a long time ago. I have many reasons for doing so, and I am going to try to politely explain them because there is more than just me that stopped for the same reasons, but first, i am going to make a simple request that is not hard to abide by that I am sure multiple authors will appreciate. Please, do not message authors, especially multiple times, begging them to participate in round robin stories, especially if they have never posted to them. It reeks of desperation, and can be considered kind of rude. Really, some of us are flattered you are requesting us to participate, but unless we have shown an interest in the story, or are someone you have spoken with in the past about writing, please, do not ask us to participate if we've declined you before on the same story. Please, you may invite us to participate in the round robin, especially if we've shown interest, but to ask us to post without expressed interest... please, be cautious in how you ask. If we have declined in the past, don't ask again. I am requesting this because multiple authors have begged me to post to their stories, multiple times. Sometimes I can't even read the request because I have no idea what is being said due to run on sentences and lack of punctuation. This brings me to my next request... please, think back to elementary or grammar school when you learned about punctuation and sentence structure. I stopped reading fanfiction outside a select few authors years ago because there is no sentence structure and I cannot follow the stories. This goes on across many fandoms, many websites, and is done by many authors... including here on hazzardnet. If you want to take your writing seriously, and you want people to read your stories, not to mention if you want people to post to your stories, please, remember sentence structure. A long, run on sentence that incorporates multiple thoughts is not a sentence. An example of this writing, so I am not calling any one individual out, would include: Bo drove out to the dairy and picked up a carton of milk but it turned out to be cream but he did not want cream so he called Uncle Jesse and asked if he wanted goat milk or cows milk and uncle jesse said he wanted cream for his coffee in the morning which he doesn't usually drink cream in his coffee so Bo decided just to get some milk And yes, I just cringed writing that example out. Anyone who wrote an English paper like that, especially come junior high or high school, would not have received anything higher than an F. You do not speak like that, so please, do not write like that. It makes you seem uneducated beyond the second grade. Scoot
  5. Ms. Bach is an amazing person who doesn't care what others think. She has helped me a lot by doing the two Dukes of Hazzard Reunion movies made during my childhood. She showed it's okay to gain weight, that we're all still beautiful. She gained quite a bit of weight after having her two kids, but she showed me it's okay and to hold my head up high when I ballooned up from medications (I went from 120 pounds at 5'5" at 17, to 200 in a year or two, only to lose 50, at the age of 22 and then ballooned up to 300 in about six months at the age of 23... and the doctor who prescribed the meds wouldn't listen! Needless to say, i'm at about 220 now at the age of 27). But my point is, she showed me it's okay, that even though I gained a ton of weight, I'm still beautiful, even if my brother says my weight is disgusting and puts me down. If she weren't a confident woman who is secure in the knowledge that she's beautiful, she would never have made the two reunion movies.
  6. Go figure. The heat breaks again, and where do I end up again? In the hospital... where I would have rather been during the heatwave part II... oh well, looks like I might be here for a few days (they don't want to release me without anyone else being home to keep an eye on me. I can't get help if I can't breathe with my behind on crutches).
  7. The heat has returned... and I sprained my ankle so I can't exactly get out of the house to go to the mall or my mother's to escape the heat. I'd have to take the bus, and getting to and from the bus stop would be an issue, as well as getting out of my house. I can barely navigate the steps for my bedroom. Good luck with staying cool y'all. And keep praying for rain!
  8. Ah well, I was close. I knew it was named after a president. I posted about it some time after I read the story, and my room was hot as hades... please forgive the mixup. Yes, rain would be nice!
  9. I believe the actual name of the airport is JFK, but I could be wrong, I just know it's the international airport in DC.
  10. There have been several broken records across the country due to a heat wave, not to mention severe weather has accompanied it, with more due to occur tonight... It was just a few years ago Europe went through a heat wave like what we are currently experiencing on the Eastern Seaboard. While I have been suffering due to the heat, because I don't have air conditioning (I've been trying to visit my mother at every chance I get for the AC), there is an interesting tidbit that occurred during this heat wave that has put a smile on my face because it was funny... You know it's hot when a plane gets delayed at the airport... Why you might ask did the plane get delayed? Because the tarmac got so hot it turned into butter! The wheels literally sank in the soft asphalt, and got stuck. This occurred, I believe yesterday, at the Washington DC International Airport! Conversely, it makes me wonder why all the road crews are still laying asphalt on the highways... it's too hot for it to harden properly, and more likely to crack in the winter due to the asphalt shrinking.
  11. I didn't know that Hotmail was banned on the site. Very interesting... and yet they have the option to list a windows live messenger. Some things make no sense to me what so ever.
  12. Hey M.A. I'm in the chat now if you want to return. If you're still in there it's not showing you. Also, JPB is having a few problems getting into the flash chat.

  13. Sorry I'm late! Chat is going on now! I was late due to eating dinner. So sorry!
  14. Thank you JPB. Unfortunately I have an illness which has me in and out of the hospital constantly. Missing last month's meeting due to the illness is nothing new. There is another chat scheduled for tonight.
  15. Sunday is the 1st. You know what that means. Sunday, July 1st, 2012 6:00pm
  16. Your email is posted with the story for feedback purposes. Just letting you know about that. It's something required of authors for the submission site.

  17. Let me know when you have a chance to check it out :) Let me know what you think.

  18. That last one looks pretty cool... but I think I prefer a mower with a mulching blade - less cleanup.
  19. Hey chickadee,

    The story has been posted on MaryAnne's site.



  20. Uh Hoss... I have no idea what you sent me a few moments ago, but I cannot access my private messages now. I keep getting a database error. Please post it on my visitor messages or meet me in the chat rooms?

  21. so sorry guys. I was in the hospital yesterday, and when I got home, all I wanted to do is sleep. If anyone wants to hold the chat tonight, let me know.
  22. Alright guys, today is the 26th, which means, this upcoming week is the monthly chat! Remember 6:00 PM EST Friday, June 1st, 2012.
