Critiques


This is gorgeous. This piece really captures the mischief-logic of kids, and I love that. Sometimes people (even in nonfiction) manage ...

Sometimes I try to give constructive advice.

I usually accomplish being a jerk. A jerk with jargon.

Uhg, even worse.

Warning: "I-Statements" ahead!

I try to make up for my lack of genuine genius with a lot of obsessive work on my writing. I think it's turning out to be a pretty good plan so far. I tend to think anything that lets me sit hunched over my computer chain tea-drinking as the sun beams down outside is pretty good.

I will critique any writing, you just have to ask me!

What is Shakespeare had actually know anything about ancient Athens?
There is a dream in which I am a woman and I have lost myself: I am she.

She does not distinguish between myself and herself because we are the same self. I am not parasitic, or just a fraction, nor is she these to me, but we are separate only enough for me to understand it.

Soon she forgets, though. She has a day to attend to. There is hair to be forced back and a road to walk to the next destination. She cleans herself in something bigger than a puddle, with a stream flowing from it. She follows it with her tent on her back, picking berries from the side of the trail. Her destination is clear in her mind, and her goal is to meet you.

You left a day ahead of her, out of stubbornness. It didn't turn into a fight, you were too careful. You know she isn't happy with you though. You can tell by the way she chews the seeds of a boysen berry as she overtakes you on the loose shale. The sky is bright. It's light almost ambient and almost blinding. You look forward to the sunset, when she will be talkative and forgiving, even though you know sleep comes shortly after. There is a dream you have every night, and you're never quite sure you have woken fully from it.
The teeth of a dream
What if I stopped trying to ruin everything?

It doesn't seem likely. Here I am ruining point of view.

Huh. I haven't even been artistically active for six months. Thanks for the DD, everyone!
One of my resolutions for 2015 is to keep a food blog that does 12 recipes minimum for the year. That went live today! My basic aim is to leave people with a bunch of recipes that are easy to intermediate skill level, answer cooking questions to the best of my abilities and hand out cooking tips. I eat everything I make, and in most cases the recipes are not copied from anywhere except my own brain. It should be a fun ride!

I'm pretty excited about it, and I've been considering cross posting some things here. I'm not sure if anyone is interested though.

Thoughts?

This is embarrassing, but I was poking around and my touch screen went a little wonky. I'm not actually watching you. Sorry. :( (Sad)

I don't think we get to decide our own greatness. Greatness is defined by what is built on our work well after we're gone. Only the fortunate see greatness in their lifetime.

DEAL. I just need something to critique, now. Feel free to help me out there.

Hello! Life goes. I have been working so much that I haven't really been finishing anything writing related. Also who knew commercial fishing vessels were so against having blueprints on the internet? How am I supposed to know what they do on the inside? I can't keep basing these things off of Haven. I did finish reading Embassytown by China Mieville the other day though. IT WAS FANTASTIC.

How's things for you? What are you reading?

Anything by SgtPossum should be an interesting read: this fav.me/d6v8x0r might be something to look at :3 

I've never really considered commercial fishing blueprints, but you know what can be a pain? Working out the schematics for a country-sized skyscraper. Absolutely maddening. There's not enough non-complicated engineering data out there. I don't want to take a degree in civil engineering, I want to know if it's feasible to turn the Vatican State into a skyscraper! *flails wildly* 

Life is hectic, as usual. Moving down-country soon, next few weeks. Leaving my tropical lair behind me, sadface sadface. 
Plowing through the final chapter of The Talisman by Straub/King. It's a heck of a read.

I wish I had a tropical lair. I wish I could wear a sarong all year round and have little lizards on my wall instead of little spiders. Or conduct a lizard and spider war on my wall. Or that.

Now I'm thinking about being woken up by a bird eating spider and I might like my temperate climate again.

Slightly more relevant; if you can bullshit your way through the weight distribution and stability issues I think you can probably make any superstructure convincing. I mean, they put Great Britain on top of a space-whale in doctor who. That was a good episode. That was a convincing episode. I mean, what about the crazy new space metal (not unobtanium because that's awful) that has all these science-fiction properties like being the best alloy ever in partnership with aluminum. Make sure it's a cheap and plentiful metal that it's good with. Something on meteorites, maybe. Lets get freaky with the periodic table of elements. We're making shit up as we go along like incredibly less scientifically informed Isaac Asimovs.

I kind of took a gamble in assuming the genre here was sci-fi. I need boat blueprints for way less exciting genre problems, but turning the Vatican into a skyscraper has a distinctively sci-fi feel to it. I'm assuming you're not secretly Dan Brown.
