You missed the where.

You know, I don't like plain old analysis. Drives me nuts. And there are bad memories regarding essay writing and poem analysis that seem to be rekindled from reading this.

I agree wholeheartedly when it comes to opinions...

And by the way, (you probably already know this) but there's a typo in...

"Know what you’re reading and no what’s going on."

Where it's supposed to be "know".

I think I may need to look at this to improve Scum of the Universe.

"Tragedies are comedies . . . if you think it is funny." I liked that line a lot. It speaks a lot about things in human nature.

That's the idea why we write!

A lot of "hence" in there, concon. ^^

"how it turns out anyway,"

Skip the anyway, it really has no use and only proves excessive.

Anyhow: I loved the psychology in this chapter what with people writing to see what they can't have realized ^^ Very nice. I wish you dug a bit deeper and said, for example, what horror writer's motivations are as opposed to romance, and such things.

But thats just because I am naturally nosy ^^

Good to see that you updated this! Keep it up!

I enjoyed reading. There were some parts that made me think - Chapter 2's Introduction when the phrase "First impressions count" were highlighted. I was like, OMG I think I need to change my story now! I agree that first impressions count, alot. It had always been a niggling thought at the back of my mind, but never fully actualized.. So yeah, you made me really realize that.

The teachers' advise were golden. I particularly liked the part about using the words "a" and "the". I learnt something new today - the difference between tragedy and tragic! (: Why do you get the good teachers!

I'd be following this if there's going to be more updates..

Very good! Hear ye, hear ye!

It's a bit wafty at places, but I guess that's probably part of your appeal. The guide is easy to follow (setting out is great, I like the bold and italic lettering when you're trying to hammer in a point) and it makes some pretty valid points. I especially enjoyed the once sentence paragraph section - it's true, words that stand alone feel stronger.

It's certainly a favorite.

I particularly liked what you said about some stories/textbooks/books having the preface, intro, about the author etc etc. The truth is no one really reads those sections, heck some people don't even read prolouges although they should because it gives you something to wonder and predict upon. If stories are going to have that stuff they should have it in the back, after the book has ended.

Wow, your English teacher is definitely right about the whole "Praising is hard, but critque is even more challenging" because the fact is it is easier to say "Good Job" than pick out everything you found wrong and critque them about it.

Well, I am taking a liking to this so I think i will keep reading, though i can't promise back to back reviews.

Its definitley a good and interesting start and so far I like it. I'll get around to reading the rest later as well as leaving longer, deeper-minded reviews/opinions. XD

"Do no construct typical "

missed a 't'

"Even typical modern day drama can transform into magic, even given the right formula."

Even, even. Repetition. Skip the latter one

"Not everything bit of dialogue"

I think "everything" is the wrong word choice here

But yay, yet another chapter! :D It's good points you make, and like you say, many people fall into forgetting them easily (myself included ^^)

Hmm... Not much else to say. Still enjoying it. Update whenever you can!

Could you give some specific examples for these? I'm not really sure what you mean with repetition...
