  • There are two issues of concern to QuotesChimp discussion: cancellation of an existing policy, and refusal to renew a policy once its term has expired. First, let's look at a typical insurance policy re�garding the issue of cancellation.

  • I am so excited to hear that there is still a tieckt for this conference! I have never been to a writing conference before, but I have been informed that conferences are a great source of networking and great mentorship. I missed the Writer's Digest Conference in New York and was later set on attending the San Franscisco conference when I discovered that the TICKETS were sold out! Looking forward to the San Franscisco conference gave me an opportunity to further work on my book chapters, so it would be a great opportunity for me to still attend this conference in 2012.I am currently several chapters into my book after overcoming some of the writer's block that comes with recalling and sharing memories that may not be as easy to share in a non-fiction book, but easier to share in a fictionalized account. I am also learning to better incorporate humor into my writing to help with some of the tougher parts of my book. My goal is to publish this year!In the meantime, I also hope to enter my work in the Writer's Digest Annual Competitions this Spring.Thank you for informing us all on this opportunity, and may the winner have every advantage at the San Franscisco and other conferences this year!(I am also posting on Facebook).

  • Well-meant, but not the best advice. Simple just doesn't apply to plorepry working a mic, and each has its own unique characteristics that must be factored in. For example, what's the pattern? Are you using a condenser-cardioid? Most of us do. Where's the sweet spot' ? Each mic type tends to have a similar sweet spot or the place on which the resonance is strongest and the sound the cleanest but each individual mic will vary slightly. It's all about experimentation. So, again well-meant, but over-simplified. A hand's length might work for certain rooms which have proper anechoic material in place, but in general, I suggest for a more quick and dirty home living room setup a table covered with a thick blanket (my husband and I used velour) in a smaller, carpeted enclave of a larger room, near a corner to ensure correct cancellation. When I'm singing, and I don't feel like dragging my pro stuff out, I'll plug in my USB Yeti and shove a throw pillow between it and the monitor. Trick came straight from my dad, who's been a sound engineer since before I was born; worked with Clapton, and was on American Bandstand himself. In closing, I suggest accepting that sound engineering is about experimentation, and not the application of a one-size-fits-all method. It's less fun that way, too.

  • I've been a reader of Writer's Digest for years and have aawlys been impressed with your magazine's (and website's) editorial ethos of trying to be as useful and practical to its readers as possible. Hence, I'm not surprised that you're offering something as valuable as a pass to the SF Writer's Conference for one lucky reader. It's completely in line with how I view WD a resource to help writer's turn this insane pursuit we have all chosen into a career. I know you'd prefer that we not fulfill the social media component of the entry requirements via Facebook, but I will add you and/or send screen shots. The reality is, the two biggest writer's communities to which I have access are on Facebook. (If I tweeted about this contest, it wouldn't get nearly as much exposure.) The first of these two Facebook communities is Babylon Salon, a 5-year-old reading series in SF that I run with a few MFA friends. Over the years, we have hosted many well-known (including five of The New Yorker's 20 under 40 authors) writers, as well as lots of emerging writers in the community. I am posting a notice there. The other place I will post is to my personal Facebook page (450 friends, many of whom are SF-based writers). Hopefully, I can help you get the word out!You can get biographical details about my writing in my profile. Thanks for the chance at the free pass! I would put it to good use as I continue to try to shop my novel.
