Appalling.
 
So. There's a dude somewhere on the Internet who believes (truly really) that White Wolf/Onyx Path writers actually pays Rich (Onyx Path owner) for the 'privilege' of writing for him. 

Obviously, this is absurd beyond words. What professional writer would pay for the 'right' to write for someone instead of, dunno, being paid as fits the definition of professional. 

Or is it?

Here's the deal, I have run across (small) publishers, real fly by night operations offering to help new freelancers 'break in' and all they want is a small fee to get into their book. This is a thing that happens in all writing industries, not just gaming, but it happens in gaming to. So here's the deal on that: 

Money flows TO the writer. 

If you want to be a professional* you get paid. You don't pay to write. These companies are predatory looking for desperate talent to take advantage of. IF you are trying to get started this is not how you do it. Exposure... there are ways to build up your exposure. PAYING to be published is not exposure. It's a con job. 

*If you're writing as a hobby and want to pay for a vanity book of short stories or poem, that's on you, but that's not the conversation I'm having here.

I have an Android now. One of the first things I downloaded was security software.

He went out in the middle of the night to grocery store for milk and mead, then tripped in the parking lot as they were resurfacing.

Introduction
Probably better known as Wordweaverlynn. Not the Unitarian pastor, not the photographer, not the real estate seller nor the British maker of jewellery. Although I'm sure they're nice Lynn Kendalls, too--nicer than me.
