I can pretty much tell you, though, that if/as you become a serious writer, you're going to be throwing this silly "I gotta be perfect" nonsense out the window. Because you never will be perfect (especially given the sliding scale of those around you on what "perfect" is). And that's OK.
And if you stay around here for any length of time, you'll discover the silly emptiness of Elfin for yourself.
I can't believe the pettiness and childish behavior of some of these writers...not all post here on the board. My thread just proved that point. But its ok. You've made your point of "losing control" of the thread. But I just check back for any new suggestions.
I've come to realize some people here already have long standing issues with the other. I just need to keep my mouth shut, which isn't always easy. Lol
The source issue I referred to were the good comments of flight time and my long winded rambling s I need to curb. Punctuation not so much. So going down the wrong path doesn't bother me too much. I may not always take their advice but I've had the same questions to myself, so the fact they mentioned it validated my concern.
I give myself another two months and I'll no longer post here anyway. I will post somewhere else. There is too much negativity on Lit and I'm tired of dealing with it. If I defend myself it just fuels the fire. So I can't win either way.
But I'll write because I enjoy it. No one can stop me from doing so. I just need to grow a thicker skin.
