Jesus Christ, I'm tired of people judging me befor they read things. Read this. It's something someone said to me, before even reading the thing I offered to them.
The Dumb Smartass: I don't need to read this to know it's not good. I know you, (I'm leaving my name out). you have a good life, and no conflict. All great authors had conflict in their lives so they could write the wonderful novels they have today.
Me: So you're saying my life has to suck so I can write good?
Dumb Smartass: Well, put bluntly, yeah. I don't know why, but I read somewhere--
This is where he got planted in the face with my fist. I'm tired of jackasses who think they know people because they read something somewhere that may or may not be true. If you're going to say I can't write, then you sure as hell better have read the freaking words I handed to you, and you sure as hell better have a good reason. None of this, "You're life doesn't suck, so you are a poor author" crap. Valid reasons.
I'm sorry, because I know no one here has even given me a bad review, let alone based it upon hearsay. It's just precaution more than a scolding.
Also, I'm now putting up The Source Chapter 1, Parts I and II. Sorry for the delay on that. I had it written for a while, but I needed to do some researching and editing.
