.. in love with their own words??
"kill your darlings" I believe our very own Wreybies said that, or may be he said "hang on, let me grab the lube." It was definitely one of the two. I think it was the latter. But his lack of foresight should be ignored. Just because he preferred lube to words is not a big deal.
Well, the lovely Minstrel, despite all his beauty would happily put me out of my misery. Such a shame because I have always found him a pretty fellah. But rules, dame rules, how they rule us.
I'm in love with some of the words I create. Other words that I create cause me frustration and face-palmage. The proportion of the latter is higher than the former.
Oh Definitely, there are worse countries out there, you could be American.
At least you know what can be
Love is fleeting that way *sigh*
I do feel that I can see potential for improvement in my writing. My fear is that I will get to a point where I can't see what I need to improve, even though I need to.
Well, seeing where you are shit is all that is important. That is the only hurdle. If you think you are good your are destined to mediocrity.
That is exactly what Alphas and Betas are there for Of course, I can also only seldomly see the shortcomings in my own work. But with diligent attention to the places Alpha and Beta make their comment, I hope to get the right instincts with time. So far it works.
@Chinspinner that is only true if you are, in fact, mediocre and no, I don't think I am brilliant!
ahahaha mad shark monster is eating your words.
It is ok, no-one thinks you are brilliant I heard the phrase "scraped by" and "Oh my God no, get me away, he is fucking useless".
No one has said that to me so far, but I look forward to getting my ears trimmed back sometime
Did you just eat my courgette? I do not find that funny, I was looking forward to my courgette.
Ups sorry.. I am non-native speaker and sometimes I don't get the joke. Unpack, please? *blush*
What's going on with this thread? Some very confusing replies... (And Lifeline just posted something similar - I'm a native speaker, @Lifeline, and I'm not following it either.)
Anyway - I never really feel satisfied with my words. Characters and scenes I sometimes fall in love with, but I'm not a very poetic writer. The most I strive for is clarity.
We all have our own strengths and weaknesses, I guess!
There is no joke, I was being a tool.
Oh good, I thought that I just had not gotten it..
This is not about poetic words, but about feeling you made the scene as close as possible to what went on in your head. That suffices for me
I'm in love with the articles and prepositions and am just friends with the rest.
Sometimes that is good enough
Friends help each other, do they not?
I'm in more of a love-hate relationship personally.
ooohhh, should give good idea-explosions when opposites collide
Separate names with a comma.
