    I'm just happening upon this thread. Very well done spegs - I know how difficult it is to even get a book published much less have someone pick up the movie rights for it. Quite the achievement indeed. Congrats!
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    Oh, SPEGS!!! *jaw-drop* I can't believe I've been away from Gen. Discussion so long that I missed this!

    Brava! Brava!

    I'll definitely be buying tickets, along w/ the rest of the FoRT armada. The movie sounds like it's gonna rock my socks.

    I love to write, but I am horrible at grammar! This is how I write all the time, with many misspelled words. I now, it's really sad...

    I have written about 10 short stories, each one being about 5 pages. Many of my friends say they are very good and they should be published! As long as i fix my grammar! someday...

    This is really one of those forums that is pretty amazing to read over and over again years later

    I copied and pasted select posts of spegs' onto a word document and printed them for my middle school students. Big hit.
    Count your blessings!

    Yup. She used to be one of the staff writers as well.

    A young girl that I work with is a major Twilight series fan. I told her that Stephanie Meyer used to hang out at a site that I frequent and I don't think she really believed me. I guess I'll have to do what Gut did and print out a couple of her posts. She'll be so jealous!! (I won't bother telling her that during that time I was a very new member and still mostly lurking )
