Is that what "Jesus is the reason for the season" means? Huh. The more you know.
Oh, hey, you, btw... you posted a thingamajig in General Writing that I want to turn into an Article in our Articles section. Cool with you?
Um, sure. That thingy about a writer's responsibility? Gopher it.
Well we do have post move powers - perhaps Wrey needs to start a quarantine area and we can all dump the spamalopes in there for later culling - although tbh the mod team are all over the spam anyway, the only time I've seen much is in the early hours when the european mods have gone to bed and the american mods are yet to wake up
My suspicion is that this isn't the great migration come early but rather a last fling of the summer as baby spamalopes born during the vacation breeding season are encouraged to leave their parents territories and strike out on their own. Fortunately being juveniles they have yet to learn the advanced camouflage techniques and are reasonably easy prey for Moderatus sapiens to sneak up on a bash firmly over the head with their hammers of doom
Done! Thank you. One of the Volunteers pointed it out as a good candidate for the Articles area and I agreed. Articles get their primary button up top and General Writing (and the section wherein General Writing is located) is really intended for questions or queries.
The above read in the earnestly posh diction of Sir David Attenborough.
@Tenderiser I think you should give it a go. It is fun to write
in other genres. Never know unless you try. But I will understand
if you choose not too, cause people slip into comfort zones that
are hard to leave. So it is up to you if you take the chance.
Good Luck Senorita.
Thanks! It's more that I don't want to go through the learning curve again. I've spent 2 years learning to write good romance, and I don't want to go back to the beginning.
It's not going back to the beginning because there are things about narrative that you've learned in your pursuit of romance that will translate to other genres. Sure, genre conventions and all that, but if you can write a narrative, the learning curve for crossing genres is substantially less than going from not knowing how to write to knowing how to write.
You got this shit. Give it a shot; fuck those other genres up.
Variety is the spice of life, you know.
Keeps things fresh and interesting.
may be you could write a romance with elements of another genre ... a romance between a mob assassn and a police officer ... or between a member of landed gentry and a serving girl...
Hard-boiled noir detective, GO!
A romance between primitive cave humans. No, wait - that's a cromance. Even more primitive would be a neandromance.
A romance between snails? A slowmance.
Between fireflies? A glowmance.
Between unbaked cookies? A doughmance.
Between enemies? A foemance.
One that doesn't exist? A nomance.
Between unspecified things? I suppose that would just be a mance.
In an alien world millions of years ago, two glowing bugs fought viciously. Slowly, the bugs are forced to work out their differences as evolution takes its toll, transforming the seemingly immortal creatures into slow ground-crawlers. As the world transforms around them, they learn to rely upon one another, allowing their love to grow as they change into indescribable creatures. After eons of change, they awake one day to find they have evolved into something human. Finally, they begin to age, but they discover fire, and the wheel, and the joy of baking together.
At long last, these creatures fade into eternity, until...what's this? Our true hero opens eyes, ending yet another strange dream of romance that he'll never have in the mental hospital he calls home.
A glow-foe-slow-mance-cro-nomance. Pixar's talking to Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks for the movie.
I swear my neighbors shop for furniture at Bed Bugs & Beyond.
I just received a parcel in the mail from someone I don't really know.
It's a rather nice feeling.
Marckus just learned an important lesson. Don't talk shit to the
people torturing you for information, when you can't move.
Not a wise choice even if it is factual, they will wreck your day.

@Iain Aschendale that is pretty funny.
Unfortunately for Marckus he is stuck with
A pro and her student. Please isn't in their
vocab. Up side is the two are going to meet
rather nasty ends themselves.
Some people make some weird concept videos.
Was it a horse's head ?
