In which I am self-pitying

Do not click:

I suck, my writing sucks, everything sucks, and I understand why no one will ever want to read the suckiness that is my sucky work.

No, you don't.

You have a good story with a definite buildup, climax, and conclusion. It's a huge improvement over your last try; it doesn't ramble around and have the secondary characters take over the way the Raif novel did. It could definitely use tightening, but the cuts I suggested are "tightening the existing story" cuts, not "scrap this and start over" cuts. The problems it has are eminently fixable.

Also, macha thinks your suggestion re: Angel and Faith was nifty, and we're going to use it. So there. *g*

So what part of "do not click" do some folks fail to grasp? :-D

Some people with perfectly good grammar skills have trouble with the phrase "do not click," apparently... ;-)

Some people would, if rendered in a GURPS system, have at least the 10-point Curiousity disadvantage.

Besides, as we all learned in that class, "Mad Magazine's Guide to Madison Avenue," the number one rule of marketing, first deployed by the Creator Himself in the Garden of Eden: "Tell them they can not have it and it shall be irresistible."

That is, in fact, the same excuse Barb gave, and I suppose it's true. Nothing more likely to make me touch something than a prominently displayed "Do Not Touch" sign...

Oh, it is. I had the writer's blues, you know, "scrap it all!" It passes. (Fortunately! Or none of us would get any work done...) :-)
