    The "Complain About Writing" Thread!

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by g_man526, Apr 23, 2013.

    This thread brought to you by the need blow off steam every once in a while.

    And who doesn't have to while writing? Everyone I'm sure has things they wish they did better. At this particular moment, for me it's I wish my dialogue was sharper. I realize that it's because I don't have a ton of practice, but I wish I could come up with the quality of some of my favorite books, movies, and whatnot. But hey.

    And what is getting your goat, Writing Forums? Tell the world!

    My playwriting teacher always told me that I have the gift of great dialogue.

    But...

    I need to use punctuation better. I'm always adding in too much or not enough; I need the happy medium people! I also need to work on detail...I suppose that's where the use of punctuation lies...

    We have a Not Happy thread in the Lounge for blowing off steam, and we'd rather not proliferate gripe threads.
