But aquarium gravel is tough and gritty! If your novel is a mystery, I think that was a great compliment. Wait a second...it's also really disgusting and slimy and smells like dead fish...

maybe op just struggles to write a novel when they cant come up with the ideas? I was one of the better painters in my art class, but one I the least productive students (info from my art teacher, also I had never taken art prior)

OP- wow. If you where a girl and lived in ( place that I won't describe), you could have been a teacher of mine One thing is different about hers from yours: her friends liked it. Sorry, OP.

There's constructive criticism and then there's being a douche. I'm pretty sure OP's friends fall into that second category. No need to be that harsh - while it was funny it was really mean. Believe it or not, it is possible to tell the truth with a bit of tact.

That sounds like a poor excuse for critique. Critiques are typically detailed and specific, as well as analytical. Comparing something to aquarium gravel when asked for a critique is just mean and not at all honest.

I think good friends would have worded it better... They were kinda being dicks. GOOD friends wouldn't compare it to aquarium gravel, they would tell OP it needs work, or that they don't think being an author is OP's thing. The way they put it was just rude and pretty ignorant in my opinion

I too have written a book. It's bloody hard work, but wow what a total buzz writing is! I loved writing my book!! Problem is - getting it published. That's even harder!! I think you should maybe get an agent to look it over. Your friends comments were not very helpful. Don't give up!!

25 - Drugs are bad. Mkay? Not too difficult to understand that fucking simple logic. Some people don't mind them, some people can't abide them. I don't mind them, but I stay the fuck away from people that use them. They are bad, bad people and as Uncle Touchy always said, bad people do more then just "touch".

43, not all drug users are bad people. Some ate sad looking for happiness and a lot are just regular people who delve into that side of the world. I don't use drugs, but I think it's very stereotypical to say they're all bad people.

Shannon - CryMore was speaking in hyperbole. Can we PLEASE not start another weed war? I'm still fighting the same war from last week with some asshat stoner over PMs. I just done have the energy.

I personally don't like that bastard number 4. I never use any 4s when I'm doing maths because I don't like them. They think they're totally the shit with their pointy end and their corners. Pretentious little pricks. So I use a 6 instead.

I see your point but thats why my logic doesnt work everything but in this case a comma does the same thing as ... Both make you pause for a second ....

Lol, commas and ellipses (or dots, whatever) do not fulfill the same grammatical role. Ellipses are used for an omission of a word or section of writing, or used to understand a continuation of thought.

Not how im using it .. Guys just stop it your wasting your time.. Its actually just sad how many people really want it to be 100% correct ... Just relax

If you're going to try and make the point that you're using ellipses correctly, you should at least know that there are three dots. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out.

Wow, this was the dumbest argument I've read all day. We've narrowly avoided another angry weed war, and instead went head-first into an education course for someone vehemently defensive of being illiterate.

Gentle ribbing? I have like 30 people fighting me. Excuse my rudeness but, i just had enough already. I think i might start purposely write like an illiterate son of a bitch just piss people off. Only thing is i wont fight with people about it so i dont cause problems, i just want to see how many people have a stick up their ass. :)

And your stupid. It's sciencetificly proven weed is not harmful to you body. Okay retard check up on your facts. I've never smoked weed but some of my family does. BECAUSE THEY HAVE GLAUCOMA! So not all people who smoke weed are bad people

43 You're a fucking idiot. Don't talk out your ass, people who do drugs aren't all bad people. I used to be a heavy exctasy taker and people loved me. Half of them had no idea till I told them. Don't be a dip shit or close minded.

Hey, according to 94 it's 'sciencetificly proven' that you don't have to smoke weed or be an 'asshat stoner' to make a blundering fool of yourself, online or otherwise. I know plenty of idiots who smoke, true. But some of the most brilliantly hilariously creative people I know also smoke. The reality is that it's not 'good or bad'. It depends on the user. I'm not going to speak for any one side; I can't advocate inhaling anything into your lungs other than air. Here's a chance to grow as a person: do some research, and make an educated decision for yourself. And Alan, Henry Rollins is a hot bitch - and so are you!

PrincessPesa - how much research have you actually done on it? Really, how much? Why don't you and forever_born go look at some medical journals about the subject. Specifically read how it has NEVER been "scientifically proven" to be harmless, as forever_born idiotically claimed. In fact, it's quite the opposite: do bronchitis, membranous glonerulonephritis, coronary vasospasm, emphysema, depression, spontaneous pneumothorax, and anxiety sound harmless to you? Go look them up. YES IT HAS SOME MILD BENEFITS, but it's not as harmless as the pot advocates want you to believe.

Uuuugh, just link them to the FML with the weed war. Plenty of educational info to be found from both sides of the fence. This fighting is just fucking retarded now, and it's not even relevant to the FML.

It's okay CryMore. You can't expect fools to understand hyperbole any more than they can grasp the meaning of the words, "weed is bad" and "grammar makes you look like less of a dumbass, even if you feel like one on the inside". And for the angry potheads getting all riled up because CryMore said all people who take drugs are evil, hyperbole is a purposeful exaggeration not intended to be taken literally. That means it's a joke.

Doc, I have have been misunderstood. I never claimed any of the specific benefits or ills that may result from using marijuana. Maybe it's because I said it's not "good or bad"? I meant that the issue clearly isn't black or white, based on all evidence available. I'm not here to demonize or laud marijuana or anyone else's opinion on the matter. I'm not fighting any weed war, for or against it. My point is that judging a person based on whether or not they use marijuana is closed minded. (Please, no diatribes about legality or health issues). There is no true measure of pot's cultural impact. Many well-loved and quite popular artists have been "pot advocates" at one time or have claimed its benefits in their creative endeavors. There are also many who smoke themselves into oblivion. My comment about research has nothing to do with my own opinions and was not intended to argue anything specific. I was just encouraging people to use their own brains and learn about what they so vehemently defend or oppose.

Okay, I was also using 94 as an example. She doesn't smoke, but her post is a mess- and I was making fun of her saying pot's harmlessness is "sciencetificly proven". So, sorry for all the words but I felt I needed to clarify.
