see, problem is that this small review was not written for you. So the fact that I have lost your interest does not bother me one little bit as your interest is of no interest to me Have a good day.No, I grasp the concept. What I meant was, you lost my interest.
Run those 'lingvo stylistic tools' on Burroughs' The Soft Machine. See what you come up with.
I truly do appreciate the support of Steve, but it's not as much fun for the mods trying to keep the peace if it gets personal....wish I hadn't been tied up doing some radio producing work yesterday...it would have been fun to keep poking this badger...but, so I leave him to his overwhelming audience of one....
I behaved myself.
I'm a reader who would be quite happy if SK wrote a ton more Talisman type books.It
's not about likes or dislikes. It's about pure professionalism and respect to the reader. I am the writer myself (of course not even nearly that well-known as SK) and yet, it is VITAL for anyone who is doing literature to respect the reader.
Oh, by the way...funny as it is, I loved Joyland
I've deleted it now but I'm going to let you know that your other comment was deleted because I thought I'd made it clear that I didn't want any more personal remarks and will continue to do so going forward.It's really funny how the moderator works. The comment abt Ukrainian assheads was left without any changes while my hmble reaction to this comment was erased. I believe my opponent fm ohio would have never said a thing like that looking in my eyes, beware of the consequences. But of course, internet allows rudeand cowardish people to do whatever they want.
Sorry, Ms. Mod, but shame on you.
I'm currently reading BoBD. In the intro to UR, Stephen wrote:A writer may write for many reasons....but the only reason to publish is for money. I do not begrudge him or any other author for publishing for money.
I believe there is no way to prove it... unless he wants to continue our little discussion in private. So, let's agree to differ on that one.I've deleted it now but I'm going to let you know that your other comment was deleted because I thought I'd made it clear that I didn't want any more personal remarks and will continue to do so going forward.
Trust me, GNTLGNT would have absolutely no problem saying it to your face. You might keep in mind that your comment about internet courtesy runs both ways.
