Re: Yes...

>>One of my more recent challenges in writing is a town in an interdimensional dumping ground, which is full of extremely diverse creatures, all with different languages, abilities, and social mores, and with so little in common, they have to keep the place from going kaboom.<<

Settings like that can be so much fun. My Apex Station -- where the doorknobs are -- is similar in terms of being a meeting place of many, divided by lots of factions.

>>The one-handed people would totally have the best prostheses too.<<

Quite possibly. The Duurludirj make the best ones in Torn World, because so many of them are warsailors and tend to lose body parts. They're an exception to the Southern tendency to disrespect cripples. You respect a mangled warsailor, or else.

>>Seriously, the more I hear about this crowdfunding model, the happier I get.<<

Yay! I have a whole resource archive on my website:
You might enjoy browsing that if you have online time. crowdfunding is a good place to find projects, too.

>> Though I think you would have a good deal of sharp words to say to the author of "Cult of the Amateur"...<<

1) Amateurs who practice a lot tend to become experts. Yay! Yay!
2) Learn to filter. It's a necessary life skill now.
3) If you don't like it, you can't have any.
