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:

Follow This Blog: Total Rewrite

Next up, Total Rewrite! Total Rewrite does reblogs and original content, much of it focused on editing. Which is awesome, because editing is hard! And I feel there is not enough focus on it, and isn’t it totally cool that there’s a blog out there to help you out with just that?

Anyway, they don’t have nearly enough followers and are quite lovely people, please go follow them! You won’t be sorry!
