    From Panster To Outliner In Nine Months

    Yay! As long as you pronounce it: Fool's. Cap. It's the one thing about that show that gets under my skin... But, I prefer to think of it as growing up and getting a backbone instead of drifting like a dead tree down the river. BTW I'm getting excited to see what happens with Jesse's world. I'm planning to have my library order it ASAP!

    Sad To Say A Former Member Has Passed Away

    Death is a fact of life, but we all hate to see someone go, but it is much easier when you know the departed one is a Christian, and truly sad when they are not. The Irish look at death differently, they cry when they are born, and rejoice when they die, believing they have moved on to a better place. One of my favorite songs is "Christians never die, they just move to their home on high." Praying for peace for the family.

    Your Areas Of Expertise!

    This poor thread has almost been forgotten. Maybe there's someone who could add to it.

    I would be willing to read it. As for foul language, I have been told that is a deal breaker with many Christian publishers. Personally I'm not offended by course language. I'm editing my first novel, it is fiction based on real world events, it deals with psychics, human trafficking, serial murders, and covers almost forty year period beginning in 1968. There is no foul language, orl explicit sexual content, but it definitely isn't a children's book. I have worked on this book for almost three years now.

    Write From The Deep: Serving Your Reader

    I love when something the Bible emphasizes gets translated into the everyday world. Sometimes it's marketing (generosity), last night it was diet (live in grace), and it is so true about how we consider our readers! i'll have to check these ladies out--they have a podcast!

    Cumulative Sentences

    I have learned something new!

    Cumulative Sentences

    Steve here is the two definitions. A cumulative sentence is an independent clause followed by a series of subordinate constructions (phrases or clauses) that gather details about a person, place, event, or idea. Contrast with periodic sentence. run-on sentence. A grammatically faulty sentence in which two or more main or independent clauses are joined without a word to connect them or a punctuation mark to separate them: “The fog was thick he could not find his way home.”

    Uh, no. The other kind. But I think I'm running out of space as well!

    Cumulative Sentences

    The course I referred to is produced by The Great Courses and is actually twenty four lectures not twenty two. They are inexpensive and obviously non credited courses.

    Cumulative Sentences

    That's exactly what it is, if not done well.

    Cumulative Sentences

    Wow! Thank you for that. I've never heard of a cumulative sentence.

    Cumulative Sentences

    I'm not referring to run on sentences. One of the course I took was building great sentences by professor Brooks Landon, University of Iowa. Basically when you create a sentence and add modifiers to it you create a cumulative sentence. The course is a series of twenty two lectures. As some of you mentioned, I think a hundred words sentence in dialog it a bit much, and not consistent with most conversations, unless your listening to a long winded preacher. That is a cumulative sentence.
