Similar to the EVE Blog Banter, which occurs once per month, EVE Blog-a-Day will pose a short simple question for EVE's bloggers. It's meant to give bloggers a jump start into posting. You want to post something, but you're stuck for a subject? EVE Blog-a-Day can help. Feel free to use it every time a new question is posed, or only when a new question piques your interest.
Even though it is called EVE Blog-a-Day, questions won't come daily. Probably around four to five per week.
Do you read any EVE Online fiction, either player-created or CCP-created? If you do (or do not), why? Do you have a favourite piece of fiction? If so, what is it? And if player-created, post a link to share.My Response
-- question by Darth Skorpius (@skorpion352)
I haven't read any of the novels. Have not read any of the stuff put out by CCP Dropbear. I have dipped a toe into the fan fiction pond, just in the last month. Small amount due to participating in a writing contest being run by Darth Skorpius (more on that later), and listening to a story-telling showdown on the VandV podcast between Seismic Stan and Mord Fiddle.
If you've not engaged any EVE fiction, I'd at least suggest listening to Seismic and Mord's Throwdown Showdown in Blogtown on Episode 29 of the VandV podcast. Both stories were quite good, and their voice acting equally so. It all starts at 39:45 of the podcast.
There's only one week left in Darth Skorpius' fiction contest. The task, to help him expand on his character bio. He makes writing about his past quite open-ended, given his character has amnesia. There are two Plexes up for grabs.
I also call on folks to send me their questions to ask the community. I'll post them, crediting you for the question, as well as a link back to your blog (give me your blog address too.)
When posting a link to your blog entry on Twitter, use the #eveblogaday hash tag, as well as the usual #tweetfleet hash tag.
If you partake in a particular question, please post a link to your blog entry in the comments. I'll compile them all, and every 25 questions, I'll post a big recap.
