Uncommon monsters 7 Writers 9/16/14 2:47am
Klaark
I don't think enough has been done with changelings. That's fertile ground. The only monsters I know of which scare the crap out of me are skinwalkers and wendigos. Wendigos make me so uncomfortable I don't even like writing the word out. Both are Native American monsters, iirc -- wendigos are more northeastern and skinwalkers are more western.

Discussing the impact of a poem on the reader? 4 Writers 9/14/14 5:45am
Sassy Sol
Pinpoint some words or phrases and/or techniques which impacted you in some way. Are there moments in the poem which you can relate to in some way? One place I always look is at the line breaks. When you isolate lines from the poem, where does where the line ends change the meaning of that line?

Cat People is definitely in my top 5. If Lawrence of Arabia is on TV I always sit and watch it.

I like the brown. Personally, I wouldn't recommend you go lighter than that. It'll wash your features out.

Why wouldn't you take the time to proofread it? Is the writing the point or strangers patting you on the back? Come on, guy.

I really need help with a short story assignment... 1 Original Stories/Prose 9/13/14 7:59am

Well, you want to write a romantic tragedy. That means at least two characters, or one reflecting on events after the fact. You need a vivid setting -- so where does it take place and why? Plot in its most basic form is conflict + resolution. A romantic tragedy's most basic plot is conflict = someone objects/some reason can't be together + result of that (Romeo + Juliet can't be together because t ...

What was your reaction to "lord of the flies" 14 Books 9/16/14 5:23am
northnut
It was one of the first books I read which worked for me both on a story and allegory level. Eye-opening in nearly all the ways possible. Anyway, apparently William Golding was a visiting professor at my university decades ago, and they had to employ a grad student walk around with him at all times opening doors because he was so aloof (and/or drunk all the time) he'd just walk splat into them. ...

Post your Before & Afters! 41 Success Stories 9/16/14 6:16am

It took about three years. I kept a food journal, making sure that I was eating around 1200 calories a day (which is the absolute minimum. I can't lie, I often ate less, but it's terrible for a woman to go below that). Keeping the food journal really opened my eyes about how I was eating and what the right portions of food looked like, but even still I didn't learn how to properly eat (whole grain ...

Longshot: if you go to Hollins, you were one of my students because I've read this exact story before. That said, multiple students have turned in stories like this. That said, multiple people from a very small pool of students have turned a story with this exact premise in. Original? Not as it is right now. As a reader, I'd like more world-building. Is this where the story starts? If not, wher ...

Smooth reading. Just a couple thoughts: I don't think any responsible surgeon would smoke inside a hospital. The reason it's prohibited is because the oxygen levels are raised, not just because it's unhealthy -- easier explosions. Second, I've never seen anybody carry an ashtray on them. I have seen smoker friends whip out an aluminum soda can. He could pick an aluminum can out of the recycle ...

Books that Changed Your Life 15 Books 9/14/14 6:35pm
mandygate
Hey, her first husband is one of my professors. He's ******** rad (also he was her professor. That's how they met.) A Moveable Feat by Hemingway changed my life twice, seven years apart. I think there's stuff in there for anybody who gives it time to work on them. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is the one that made me feel like my world had spun apart and reformed. Seriously, every few paragr ...

Two methods, so far as I understand: start at the end and work your way back (know the ending and then figure out how it happens), or start at the beginning and see where it goes (editing process is largely making sure all the pieces solidly lock together.)
