Gibran's Writing Tip:

Vodafone remain the most rlilabee voice calls, but consistently the worst data providers with the highest data charges and slowest data speeds: compared to Orange, T-Mobile and 3, tested on a variety of Android and Symbian handsets in London, Surrey and Herts I've seen so many people with poor O2 reception that I didn't even consider them: O2 regularly claim multiple bars of reception , but are unable to receive calls at all and and unable to make the calls without switching to a much lower signal mast.After moving off Vodafone Corporate, I had tried 3 as my main phone brilliant, 4G rivalling download speeds (slower than 4G on upload), but unable to get the phone to connect a voice call a lot of the time, especially at home (zone 4 London), both in/outbound or receive a text message, sometimes for 2-3 days at a time. Mobile data might be the future , but Skype only gets you so far!Then I changed back to Vodafone so I could make and receive voice calls (my wife was expecting!), but the noticeable thing was the sudden loss of data features I had taken for granted on 3 e.g. video streaming, listening to albums straight out of Google Play, internet radio. Even with the slow data, I was regularly blowing my 1Gb data limit and being slapped with punitive surcharges.I'm stuck with Vodafone for another 12 months, so I've got a 4G MiFi from EE for now on a rolling 1 month contract which costs me a third of what I was paying in monthly data surcharges, for more data and at genuinely fast speeds! As much as their line rentals are excessive, the reception and consistency of signal I've seen thus far makes them top of my list of contenders for my next contract even better, my work Blackberry has just been changed from Vodafone to EE, so I'll get a chance to test their voice carrying capacity for a while first . and I'll hopefully get a corporate discount :)Posted 02/08/2013 at [url=]abqwmpfs[/url] [link=]kohzuppc[/link]

Your boys are absolutely gooeurgs. Like, now it makes sense why you live in such a stunningly beautiful location- it's the only place on earth that could possibly suit such boys.

Ginger Gelsheimer's Writing Tip:

If you are struggling to get reviews for your latest book, join Book Review Depot, a community of indie authors who share experiences in writing, marketing and general support. We also have a program where you read and review 5 books from a list and then you get to post your own book to the list until you receive 10 reviews. Beware, there is a waiting queue that is around 90 days to move through the queue-so DON'T WAIT! Join us at Google+ Communities or at Facebook! We've generated almost 800 honest reviews since we started at the end of July 2013.

Aliit Vodeson's Writing Tip:

Don't drag on a story for the sake of dragging it on. Sometimes you may want to have it go on longer, but the plot simply falls flat. At that point, let it go. Wrap it up and call it down. Plots that the author makes drag on lose the reader's attention.

Darth TalonIII's Writing Tip:

When your writitng an original characters fic and your original characters meet classic characters stay true to the classic characters personality and don't try to connect your character to the classic characters through kinship

Artooie's Writing Tip:

I find that when I'm writing, playing Path Of The Jedi helps to get me in what I like to call "Star Wars Mode."

HateAndGreed's Writing Tip:

Try to plan your characters before you write. Nothing fancy as you can also come up with character twists and flaws as you write. What you need before you start is their name, general appearance, and basic history.

Master Senya Analandi's Writing Tip:

Try not to put too many "ly" words in your story:

lightly, softly, sadly.

Of course, there are some words that have the "-ly" ending that you can't avoid, but try to avoid excessive use of them and come up with more descriptive way of saying the same thing.

Anonymous's Writing Tip:

Stop with the constant quotes and referances. Make your own fresh and interesting material.

Sure, they sometimes fit, or are just too classic to pass up "I've got a bad feeling about this", for example but reading "a wretched hive etc." over and over again is kind of irritating.

jarogue's Writing Tip:

Don't put "he" or "she" at the begginning of every single descriptive or action sentence;
"She closed her eyes. She was worried about gettting caught, blah blah blah." Boring!
Try this: Sqeezing her eyes shut, she retreated to the solace of the darkness. It would all be all right; she told herself. That is, provided she wsn't caught on the way there."
