After several months, I have found that Area51 was an interesting idea destroyed by too many questions that should never have been asked. Since there doesn't seem to be a way to stop being a member, I'll just stop answering questions.

Eventually this site will die. I won't miss it.

comment How many words/hour should you aim for when writing your first draft?
Enough words to convey your message- unfortunately this question does not meet that criteria. You want a number? 500,000. Now since you probably don't like that number pick one of your own that you can meet. BTW, 500,000 bad words is not as good as three good words. If you are an accountant setting an objective goal might work, Are you.?

comment What are the challenges of converting blog content to a publishable work?
Books as a format might have advantages... it is the information contained on the pages of a book that sells. There are a lot of books I read at the library (anyone remember those?) rather than buy. There is lots of information I get from the net rather than buying a book. Publishers and self-publishers must determine whether their material has a ROI. Try to query say a dozen publishers. If the response doesn't have a hint of interest I think you have your answer.

comment What is a log line, and why are they bad?
The question was NOT about what QS said. Refresh:"...but I'm still not sure what they are, and why are they bad for writers / queries?"
