  1. Killing my darlings. Sometimes I think I'm so clever...I read it a few months later and realize it 1) is distracting or off key from the passage, or 2) just bad writing. Sometimes when I feel I'm really stinking it up, it turns out to be a fairly good passage when I go back for editing.
  2. I agree the use of profanity/vulgarity etc. shows a lack of vocabulary, laziness, lack of creativity, etc. HOWEVER, I find highly unlikely all realistic characters in contemporary settings would adhere to that moral standard.

  5. Greetings AJ. Glad to see another new fiction writer. I look forward to fellowshipping.
  6. Hello, Jess. I literally (pun) just joined as well. I look forward to sharing ideas with new and old (however y'all want to take it) members alike.
