You were simply too smart for me.
FRG is the most logical poster on this board. You guys just don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.
I'm sorry about the vitriol but I take the language seriously and I don't suffer incompetent pedants well at all.

Ha Ha! I think I found the person who gives me one star-ratings on my stories! Seriously the reader does make some good points. There are a few little things that I should have caught. There is one part where our admin system actually deleted a couple words in a sentence. And also the very first intro paragraph design is formatted funny. That again shows we have some bugs in the system layout program.Every organization chooses a writing style that they try to stick to. Some indent each paragraph, some use quotes inside paragraphs, while we start new ones beginning within quotes, etc...Writing styles can be subjective. There are times that I think a sentence structure sounds good but SR will change it, same with me.I will be the first to admit I am not the best self-editor, I, like most, can edit others' work much better than my own. But we always have at least one staff member read over the stories before they are published. I admit with my newspaper background I was spoiled. Having copy editors, sometime several before something is published, look over and edit your work can make you a little careless. I am much better than I was when I started in July but still can and will get better. I DO appreciate Bucs FTW's suggestions (just maybe not the forum in which he chose to use or his tone) but he is correct in some of his critiques. But as AXXon pointed out not it all of them.And sometimes after writing two or three thousand words my eyes are popping out of my head. Still no excuse for basic errors.I hope readers can overlook the mistakes for the most part and accept the content. That isn't an excuse for poor grammar however. It is important to us to be professional. I personally read some sites or others blogs and cringe at the grammar sometimes. But we all make mistakes. My father is famous for using a sharpie marker when he reads one of the two daily big papers, circling errors.Again I will continue to get better and appreciate the critique and the support.MC
With compliments like that you are earning points very fast BucsFTW ... Seriously I need to get dropped a notch ego-wise every once in a while, or so my wife tells me on a regular basis. Thanks for the feedback again. In the words of The Office, you can be the assistant to the assistant. (The BBC version was the best).
Trueblood is the worst starting right tackle in the league.
