With a theme like that I guess I have to join. I'm in.

If it helps any besides maybe continued issues with proof reading in general, I wouldn't say I really have much of a unique style for you to miss. That's at least what I think. May actually explain some things. Kinda hard to stand out if you don't have your own voice might be worth trying to improve.

Sounds good to me

My bad I meant Sur and ant. Fuck those two in particular. Only issue I have with you is I still want that rematch from you beating me in that short story contest.

You could end world hunger and I would still pray that both of y'all get Alzheimer's and force your families to watch who you are as a person slowly fade into oblivion.

What do you think about "death of the author"? on 4/8/2023 7:53:42 PM

I think the main thing is death of the author (DOA) shouldn't be used to directly contradict the author. If the author says a flood is a bible reference it's a bible reference, not some esoteric reference to Walmart or some shit.

It is true that authors do lose some control in how there works are interpreted, but if we can prove that they are making bible references that should be the line of thinking.

I also think that who the author is should actually be the base of any interpretation if possible. A lot of people don't seem to realize that some of what makes it into a work is more subconscious.

It is just being a pretentious ass to say that the human behind the art doesn't matter.

On the flip side a author shouldn't be judged as a human purely based on their work. Maybe provide a insight into their world but not define it.


Sorry if this came across as a jumbled rant but just some thoughts I have 



Your approach to story writing, research, choices? on 9/1/2022 10:21:20 AM

My writing style is very 'moment' based. I'll have characters and I'll want them to go through certain things. For example my 'Angel' series of short stories I've published here. One major scene I wanted was to have a fallen angel choke slam someone. The rest of that was making it happen and the reaction.

Most of my research is remembering something then looking to see to how I could apply it. Like I could go oh yeah I want a mythical horse in this, doesn't Celtic mythology have something like that? 

I actually don't recommend my method, it just works for me. I wish I could sit down and fully plan but I just can't.
