Incentive to write a better one? Maybe, I dunno, just maybe consider tusche aping it and starting over?
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...
That's probably the best and your only chance at an honest critique.
They're probably just jealous. Have faith in yourself OP! If it's actually not very good, just change it, but don't give up
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!!
Idk why people are thumbing you down... I dont smoke weed oftenly but people thumbing you down have only heard of bad affects of weed ... Thats probably what it is.... I have smoked weed like three times so i cant really say much.... But i do know weed is bad for you but its not horrible... People need to calm down about it...
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".
Lol omg you guys have nothing to say so you correct shit you understand... I use dots because i just dont like commas... If you understand my point then dont correct me ... You are all just pathetic nazis that think they are the shit because they can spell and be grammaticly correct all the time... Unless im writing an essay i dont give three shits how i write
............... You are all dumb asses ........................... Like i cant even explain the intensity of all your stupidity ,,,,, im sorry i dont use commas,,,, im sorry i dont live to please you,,,, but i honestly believe you have turned this small case of me being lazy and hating the comma,,, to a fucking lesson ,,,, move on with your life but go see a doctor and take that stick out of all your asses ... Uptight snobby bitches who call out people for fun.... What a shame
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. :)
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.
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.
