Hey, onision, I figured that since the very first sentence that your wrote has three or four “I"s in it, that this may help you. Same with the "show, don’t tell” thing. But… since you take any actual criticism with a grain of salt, you’ll prob'ly ignore this.

And, really, there are a multitude of writing blogs and programs and what have you out there that you can follow and actually learn from. Here, let me give you a list (since I appear to be a habitual list maker, though there are blogs that I follow that are missing from this list, I will add them at another time) and, having this list, there should be no excuse why you can’t be a better fucking writer, Gerg:
