I have some other online credits, and have been printed by New Voices Press a few times in anthologies and Italia magazine. I have an e-book coming out in the middle of April. After that, I muscle down to writing my sci-fi/fantasy series.

Do you click on my links just to talk smack about the first line, or do you actually read the whole thing?

 

 

Go read some Mortal Instruments or something more to your liking :ack:

I can foresee many problems for you if you seriously intend to become an author and can't take criticism.

If you really must know, I couldn't bring myself to read much more. Your so-called 'stylistic choice' is so damn hokey and distracting, it's impossible to take you, or your writing, seriously. 

Sorry, but there it is.

And Helena's right. If you want to be a writer, you're really gonna have to work on thickening your skin.

ETA: And you really should be posting this shit in the Boarders Writing a Novel thread. This is a self promotion thread, and the way I see it, you've currently got fuck all to promote.

It's not criticism. Criticism is often well thought out and sometimes valid. What's occurring here is trolling.

I am already a writer, and I am already an author. Whether you have read my work or not is irrelevant. As for thick skin, this is obviously the effect you intended, otherwise you wouldn't have posted again with the exact same complaint. If your second grade reading level precludes you from enjoying what I write, so be it. And as for "f**k all", I think 35,000 words is indeed something, not nothing, champ.

My intention was a bit of good-natured joshing, until you went and threw your toys out of the pram. And look, if you're going to post stuff online then point to it and say, 'Look at me, everyone. I am writer.' Then you'd better be prepared for whatever gets thrown at you.

Thank you. Your "criticism" has been taken into account. :D

Clearly you haven't heard about his shit-hot concept.

 

In all seriousness, there's a difference between criticism and ridicule. Yes it always looks bad to defend your work when you put it out there to be critiqued, but it's not like the initial comment was really meant to be helpful. These threads are supposed to be about support, not mocking each other. Let's just drop the personal insults and move on.
