Love to find the moral dilemma in every situation. What makes a good decision. How close can someone go to the dark side of their personality with out losing their soul? Just random good versus evil stuff.

GWHARGIS: We are the sum of our experiences. But a good writer embellishes some.

GWHARGIS: Where has the summer gone? Time to put it to rest. Welcome autumn!

    pipersfancy: As much as I truly love summer - this year, I do feel ready for autumn. Fall is actually my favourite season, but still... the relaxed, laid-back vibe of summer is hard to let go of! (Can you tell I work in schools? LOL!)

GWHARGIS: Writing is like heroin. I tried to stop to concentrate on my art. I found myself painting words on the canvas. I am back. I will review at least one day a week.

    Welcome back!

    giraffmang: Having never tried to shoot up a syringe full of words, paper and ink I can't attest to the veracity of this statement... I find it's more like Pringles (tasty potato snack treat) - once you pop, you can't stop...

GWHARGIS: What's wrong with the world when the tolerant are as intolerant as the ones they deem intolerant. Follow me?

    kiwisteveh: Well aren't you being intolerant if you deem the tolerant to be intolerant?

GWHARGIS: Sometimes my muse just sits quietly beside me and stares at the blank page with me. She complains that I don't pay her enough to work and that I buy store brand ice cream instead of name brand.
Anyone else have this problem?

    humpwhistle: Congrats. Well done.

GWHARGIS: I have found that using high dollar words in my writing will never make up for not putting my soul into it. I can go through my portfolio and I know which pieces are souless. The ones I'm proud of are like my children.

GWHARGIS: I am slowly trying to release my poetic side to the public. Problem is, I can't follow directions at all. I guess I will stick to freestyle and 5/7/5 format. So I will thank you to critique the heck out of my work. I never take offense at legitimate and constructive reviews.

GWHARGIS: Anyone out there have or had Lymes disease. I'm being tested. I feel horrible and am hoping to hear from anyone who knows about this stuff. Thanks

    flylikeaneagle: Look on the web sites. Mayo Clinic has information for you. Eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies, smoothies and energy foods. I'll keep praying on you. flylikeaneagle

    rama devi: So sorry to hear this. I have three friends wit Chronic Lymes. One is an expert. Would you like me to send her an email? Sending prayers...

GWHARGIS: Wondering if anyone knows how to respond to reviewers who tell you they don't think you gave enough backstory when they are randomly reviewing a mid point chapter in a novel. Pretty sure Stephen King doesn't give a character's backstory in each chapter. Don't want to get picky but why punish the author with a 3 star when you are just jumping in?
July 12, 2016 at 9:52PM
    nor84: There's nothing wrong with replying, "this was chapter X of a novel. You can find the backstory by reading the previous chapters." They might not like it, but that's not defending your work and it isn't arguing, so not against site rules.

    I am Cat: Smile with southern charm, and inform them it's part of a larger picture... Fan yourself coyly and saunter on. (Well, it works in the south) lol
