View Full Version : Maryn Takes a Bow

Besides spending way too much time here at AW, I help writers (mostly teens) at other sites when I can. I give the referral link to AW to the ones who seem open to learning how to write better, or market their work, or avoid scams. (Which is not many, to be frank. Maybe fifteen percent. The rest are either open only to praise or so hopelessly bad with written language that I just don't see it happening.)

I don't know that it's a major accomplishment, but I hit 100 referrals today. If even a quarter of them give Mac as little as five bucks, that's $125 for AW, which is cool.

Maryn, bowing [uh-oh, my hat fell off]

That's a good reminder. I haven't chipped in lately.

I think we should all bow to you.

Only carefully, so we don't bump heads.

SP, bruised.

There's a witticism lurking, about one of us skewering the other with demon horns, but I can't quite make it work. So let's pretend I did and it was hilariously brilliant.

I'll donate $30 if scarletpeaches will use an avatar of Carrot Top for a day.

Oh, wait. I'd have to look at the damn thing.

I'll donate $30 if scarletpeaches promises to never use an avatar of Carrot Top.

Well I've never heard the like!

Maryn, I'd bet that's a record.

(I used to think those referrals were given to members who got into trouble and were written up and sent to the principal's office.)

I bet you say that to all the boys.

Congrats, Maryn. That's impressive.

You don't want me referring people from elsewhere on the Internet. Those other people are filthy. ;)

Congrats Maryn!

Congratufabulations!

Ordinarily I'd make a joke about bowing and 'going down'.
But I don't seem able to come up with the punchline.

Sorry

I hate you.
I lurve you.

Well, well done, Maryn!

Maryn, I've just looked. That is, in fact, a record--and by quite a comfortable margin. :) You rock, woman!

(This is how she's managed to avoid the shock collar all these years, in spite of my best efforts to sweet-talk her into it.)

Cliff Face

*I* never get offered the shock collar... *sniff*

Perhaps it's because I'm a rascal with no sense of justice? ;)

You have three. Only ninety-seven more to go before you catch up to Maryn, so get busy.

Cliff Face
11-20-2010, 03:35 AM
Or perhaps it's because I just used the word "rascal"...

Eh, I'll never be offered Modship. This is my way of coming to terms with my distinct indistinctness.

we're supposed to refer people here? I thought we were supposed to keep it our little secret.

Well... not leave... But at least not use that sort of pidgin-speak again.

I keep handing out AW referrals cards at strip clubs instead of dollar bills. Has any of the strippers joined yet? They have very interesting comments...

Cliff Face

So that's how I wound up with an AW referral card in my hand last year!

I mean...

Carry on.

Congrats, Maryn! Well done. I refer AW all the time, but my cats can't log on...

Wait...

we're supposed to refer people here? I thought we were supposed to keep it our little secret.In a way, I do. I could just post the link all over the place, but that would swell our ranks with people who aren't serious about making an actual effort to improve. So I screen.

I don't see a lot of the people I referred staying for a long time, but a handful are here years after arrival, clearly benefiting. (Why does that have only one 'T'?)

Maryn, who has no T's at all, but can be a tease

If this were a video game, you'd probably just hit level 80 right now.

... good going :-)

With me, I don't know any writers outside of those here. Guess I could refer people from here to here? Let's give that a try ...

Hey, Regdog. There's this site AW that I think you'd be interested in!
Hmm, that ain't happening. Sigh :-(

The only referrals I've gotten have sent me straight to Mac's office for detention.

AW, you say. I'll have to check it out

I do all my referrels by word of mouth, so I don't get any credit for them. But I'm sure I'm right up there at maybe 3 or 4...if not 5.

Good job, Maryn.

Great work, Maryn! I still remember when I was first referred to AW... I was 16 and kind of confused about this whole writing business. I don't know what I would've done without you, guys!
