Nice to meet you! Yes, I understand wanting to read the 'printed page.' In fact, in time, in the near future, we will offer our books in electronic book format which you will be able to download in its entirety and print out; those books will be lower priced that their traditionally printed counterparts.
Marie reads each and every post, and let me tell you, I am glad to find supportive ones. Writing is her 'calling,' it's her second nature, and I believe she writes it directly on the computer. Though as you might well know, when the muse comes to you, any old pen and paper will do.
I do not see any problem with you printing out to read. You know it is copy written material, and it is OK if you pass it along to a friend or two, as long as they, too, respect the author's right to her own material, as you do.
Keep visiting our Reading Parlor, we have a good selection there which you might well enjoy.
: We haven't met, in fact I don't know anyone here. I am quite the little lurker. However, I would like to say that I have read all of the posts here, especially the ones re EW. I did read the first chapter and can see that Marie is indeed a talented writer. I had to print it out though. If I am going to read a "book" type thing (hows that for descriptive writing? :-/), I like to hold it in my hands, kick my feet up over the back of my couch, smell the pages (in this case, a fresh ink jet smell is present), relax and read. The first time I read it, I read it right off my computer screen. I found it (and other writings) less enjoyable on the screen. If I print them out, I can sink into them a little easier.
: Anyway, what was I saying? OH!
: Marie is most certainly a talented and imaginative writer.
: One question for her though, perhaps you can ask her for me? Does she write by sitting down with pen and paper in hand? Or does she use a computer/laptop? I am always curious how different people get into their writing "groove".
: p.s. I only printed it out for my personal enjoyment. Was that o.k.? I wont share it.
