I have to EDIT in DETAIL in everything I have wrote XCCC I sticky note the word DETAIL onto my computer screen XD So I can't update for a while least I feel iffy about previous chapters, it's so hard XP

New person, have we met?

Blazn: Never, ever, ever, ever, EVER, EVER, EVER edit the living manuscript. You're going to wind up focusing on details and little mistakes instead of just telling the gosh-darn story. Things like plot holes and missing details should be fixed after you're done telling the story.

But that's just how things go for me. Whatever works for you . . .

Lol, I mean seriously Nate, out of 3,000 words you may find 5oo adverds, I COMPLETELY forget about detail, in 21 chapters I had never once explained a character, and finally after enough complaints got to it in chapter 21....How I get so many faves and alerts on that thing I have no clue...

Working with freshmen? Eeeeek...lol. Doing what exactly?

@BlaznFangurl No we haven't met, but you can call me Nor! What do I call you..

Nate I agree, but only if you have a good number of chapters done. I just got done editing and detailing my first two chapters because I didn't flesh out certain parts enough. In my third chapter I wanted to throw stuff in that seemingly came out of nowhere..had to backtrack a bit.

"Lol, I mean seriously Nate, out of 3,000 words you may find 5oo adverds, . . ."

That's GOOD. Too many adverbs makes a work seem fluffy and awkward; most hacky authors (I'm thinking of one in particular, but there are bunches . . .) use them as a crutch. To quote Stephen King, ". . . the road to Hell is paved with adverbs."

Adverbs can be a useful tool, but sticking to descriptive adjectives about 60-70 percent of the time will give things a less awkward, more poetic flow.

quick question... how do you check on privite messages on fictionpress? the reason i ask is that i cant seem to find a way to check up on them.

I took some martial art that I couldn't spell the name of for the life of me (I think it came from Korea . . .) when I was alot younger, but sort of fell out of it.

Now I want to learn old-timey boxing. Y'know, white guys in leotards with big moustaches. Starts with a p?
