You build a scene rather well, but I kind of feel like we're stuck in your head more so than the main character's head. How much showing vs telling you choose is more of stylistic choice, but I feel...

I'm going to go over to the fiction thread and try to find some actionable feedback for the latest story; that's what I'm going to do. If you'll wanna yammer about non-writing all day, that's up to...

You can't have a society that feminizes young men and have burly macho singers at the same time. Boys in schools these days are shamed for what once considered "being a boy". The end result is that...

He's probably the best editor on this forum, but he would get personal if you didn't go along with his SJW nonsense. I've seen him get unnecessarily shitty with people who are no longer here. Anyway,...

There's been a major effort over the past decade or so to dumb things down to reflect the level of viewership. Most news is written on a 7th or 8th grade reading level, because according to the U.S....

Noticed the deleted post. Wasn't sure what it was. I try avoid that kind of stuff. Arguing with people about what they believe/don't believe. Mainly because it's pointless. I don't really feel a need...

Everything's really amazing right now; it's good to take time and realize it. We haven't had an active draft in this country in more than 40 years and that's a good thing.

Well, either he's just taking a break, he quit, or he got banned. I think you'd know if he was banned (something would have happened). But I can't figure why his avatar would just disappear either,...

Maybe it's just the avatar. Looks like the rest of his profile is still there. He could have quit. Maybe.

Agreed. It's easy to dismiss Alex Jones as off-kilter, subversive, or brash, but no more than people who see crop circles in Indiana. It's absurd what's going on with media right now. First, you make...

Thanks. I'll revisit the second part. I had my doubts it--well the whole piece is a gamble truthfully, but the second felt off to me. I wanted to continue that dog-human mind-melt interaction, but it...

The yams, glistening
with coconut butter,
beneath the west-setting
sun attract chiggers.
Just a nip or at thee,
will dissuade such
sentimentality.

No, especially not in the United States. If you declared an emergency, requiring everyone to stay home, everyone would say "what about my rights?"
