Scope of articles. Gems are the cutting-edge for more-or-less
experienced readers, recipes in a cookbook are simpler things for new

Also: you want to say that there was a call for articles for Lua Gems
2 that I missed? I do not think so.

Please read the discussion.

I have an itch to write (technical articles). I'm an amateur writer,
but some people say that my articles are not all garbage. I like
writing about Lua — that is the subject that, I, probably, know best

To scratch my itch I will write about Lua even if Lua Cookbook
initiative will not work (that would be in Russian though).

But I believe that participation in a book should result in a product
of better quality and public benefit than if I wrote some random stuff
all by myself.
