    I'm interested to know why I'm single. And I'm interested in men who...Oh shit. I thought this is a dating site.

  1. I'd like to find a story with a cute animal companion with ADD or alcohol problems. An opposing character flaw has to juxtapose the fluffy or cute appearance with said animal companion that's relatable. Not everything is cute in actual life, so why can't I find an adorable cat with anxiety issues and have a habit of taking catnip to extremes now and then?
  2. I guess there's a vast difference between erotica in fiction for the sake of getting off, compared to writing erotica as part of the storyline. For example: Compared to: I mean, if I wanted to get off by reading a narrative, I'd go to nifty and waste my time filtering stories with a good storyline, plot, narration, and grammar...to pop the cherry after an exhausting read. But if you want to be intrigued by a good sex scene, crafting sex scenes that don't seem jarring, but intriguing, is the challenge. Writing about two men humping each other for the sake of letting the readers know that they're having sex and they're good at or they're bunny rabbits hammering each other day and night without the context to the readers why they'd have to read through such parts, annoys me as a reader.

    I'm not really in the business of being a grammar nazi douchbagger, but this one is triggering me. I apologize in advance. It's impossible to use 'slitted' in the context when used as a verb. Slitted means 'to make a long narrow cut'. Unless you're using it in a context where someone has just scalpel'd his eyes or slit his eyes, like in a reference to someone slicing one's throat--then yes, it's possible. Slit-eyed/slit eyes is the adjective used to describe the narrowing shape of an eye. ...the accompanying spray forced my eyes to keep squinting. ...the accompanying spray forced me to keep my slit-eyed gaze. or ...the accompanying spray forced me to keep my eyes narrowed to slits. And if slitted-eyes are an adjective, it is to describe reptilian, cat-like eyes...like the vertical slant of the pupil of felines or reptiles. I think owls have them too...not sure. (returns to the shadows) 
  4. Sometimes writers purposely create epilogues so they won't need to continue the story. Because the force is real when they need to stop themselves from creating book 100, on stories that have several series. Sometimes it's like...Listen to Elsa damn it: LET IT GO. It also applies to certain book genres: you can't expect books dealing with drama or loss to have an epilogue. "Sarah finally got her kidneys via a black market donor. Jimmy finally sold his kidneys to a black market specialist. He died 7 weeks later. The end." "After boarding the flight to see Gary, whose flight would crash on the 18th of July, Michael took off his ring and said, "I'm getting a divorce." Michael got remarried 8 weeks later after Gary's funeral. He got dysentery on his honeymoon in Africa. The End." But of course, it really depends. Unless it's a dramatic novel speaking about hope, a story about a certain cause or driven propaganda that helped a situation--an epilogue would be ok. . Adventure books are filled with epilogues though. We just want frodo to have a happy ending, don't we? I guess, it's natural to have that need to have closure from going through the character's adventure. It's that happily ever after sentiment we get from feel-good stories, or even movies. Epilogues for forgettable characters based on plot driven novels. Bad idea. A reader would be like, "Who the hell is this again? Didn't he die from an airplane crash? Geezus...he's only mentioned in one sentence. It's not even a complex sentence." *cough* wattpad *cough*
  5. My mom lives in Sunnybank Hills, Brisbane. I'd been keeping tabs on her everyday. I can't believe what's happening down there right now. I can't believe so many horrible things have been happening just this year. The start of the new decade and we get this for starters. 
  6. I personally prefer to write with no distractions. Although sometimes there are songs that resonate with what your writing. I just can't focus if I'm in a busy crowded place--tried the Starbucks route, I ended up Youtubing and googling random crap unrelated to what I'm writing. I get distracted easily that it's not healthy, specially if I'm googling information. One thing leads to another. Let's say I'm searching for a skipper boat in the Mediterranean. Skipper Boat > Greece > Holiday Destinations in Europe> Malta > Hotels in Malta > Wiki Malta> Axis Siege > Phoenicians > Byzantine Rule > Alexander The Great > Alexander Bisexual?... Although I have a screenplay writer friend who cannot write...I mean, cannot frigging write without action music blaring in his ears. You know 24 (The series) type of background music that gets your adrenaline pumping. That's his thing.
  7. Trust me. If you're quitting smoking, your brain is recalibrating the hormone levels as it adjusts the loss of nicotine. Think of the chemicals in your brain as a weighing scale. By quitting smoking, you've tipped the balance of your brain chemicals by taking out nicotine as the source of a primary booster for dopamine--the mood elevator. So anything that you associate as pleasurable will be re-tuned and readjusted by your brain as it resupplies itself with a more natural source for 'happiness' that you'd once gotten from smoking. When I quit smoking in 2016, the first month, I was drinking 3 to 5 litres of water a day as my body flushed the nicotine out of my system. 2 months later, it was hard for me to get boners...I'm speaking of forcing myself to jerk-off in order to get off for the sake of getting off paired with semi-hard erections. I was dating someone working in the field of medicine at the time, and he said it was normal for those suffering from any addiction to undergo physical and emotional changes. And yes, I even had a 2 to 3 week phase where watching videos about owners reuniting with their pets, wedding proposals, animal related videos, soldiers coming home always made me cry. It was so random...I think I even cried from watching a car commercial. And that lasted until the third month when it was the complete opposite. I was getting boners almost every single frigging time. Supermarket--random boner at the produce aisle. Picking my dry cleaning--random boner while waiting for my turn. Walking to the mall while texting a friend--random boner that I had to readjust and I don't wear underwear so it was troublesome. At a meeting--I'd cross my legs while discussing work. Eating dinner outside--I'd cover my lap with a napkin. And then a few months later, it subsided. I'm not overgeneralising my experience with everyone's experience--but I did quit smoking as in 0 cigarettes from day one until now. It didn't quit in moderation, I stopped cold Turkey. I also had a bet with a friend that I wouldn't last for a month without cigarettes so...challenge accepted. Going back, I understand what you're going through. The highest likelihood is that whatever you're experiencing right now, I'd bet it has to do with your body adjusting its brain chemicals. You'll like dick again--pinky promise. It'll come back with a raging vengeance...bonerfied.
  8. My early 2020 goal is to finish the story I'm writing and have it published here. But I may have bitten more than I could chew.

    Wow. He just spotted a model whilst in the middle of a shootout in a zombie apocalypse. 😁
  10. It's supercalifragilisticexpial-ecstatic Even though the sound of it Is something quite ecstatic. If you say it loud enough You'll always sound ecstatic. Supercalifragilisticexpial-ecstatic. I imagined my uncle singing the ecstatic parts. It's deftly atrocious.
  11. "Late one evening toward the end of March, a teenager picked-up a double-barreled shotgun, walked into the forest, put the gun into someone else's forehead, and pulled the trigger. This is the story of how we got there." - Beartown by Frederik Backman. That's his prologue. It was short and interesting; it got me hooked to be honest. I always imagined prologues are like the 5 second start to a movie or a minute intro of the story to an investigative crime-drama series. Not every film has it, but most likely if the plot involves some mystery, it will have one. Just like the first episode of House where the teacher was scrambling on her way to school. And then, she has this brief interaction with a co-teacher about her tryst with a guy the previous night (yes--horny faculty exemplified). And seconds after starting her lecture, she falls down and undergoes an anaphylactic shock and starts seizing. Then insert house opening soundtrack plug-in credits blah blah...then the screen pans to Dr. House. I've always felt that if that first episode was written as a novel, that intro would be the prologue. It's related, but not the meat of the story. It's like the hook to the main plot or to a bigger plot.

    Chapter 1/1

    Wow. The writing is impeccable.
  13. The English Patient by Michael Ondaajatje was written in both Present and Past tense. Live events in the Italian villa were written in the present tense; and when one of the characters was having a flashback to a previous memory or event, it was written in the past tense. When I read the book for the second time, I was too young to understand how complex the story and narration is. I read it when I was 14 and reread it out of boredom while waiting for a friend at a coffee shop. My second read-through required slow and careful attention to rhythm. I got a sense that every word was straining and bursting with every meaning. The physical descriptions were sensuous and very intimate, and Ondaajatje's gift for using well-timed silences and ellipses to speak volumes was in candour to his tense structure that everything, in short, works. I have no qualms with books or stories written in the present tense. There just has to be a sense of reason and rhyme to the way it was written. 
  14. There's this story set in Australia about this guy named Matthew Kingston, this surfer bloke named Brad. It's probably one of the most thoroughly articulated stories here with excellent writing. But I can't seem to find it anymore from this site. And I can't find the author either. I read it back in 2017. i want to recommend it but I can't find it unless someone has the link.
  15. 50 shades of Gurrey would like to know your address. Hahaha.
