I haven't seen an episode of it yet, but I'm a bit leery after seeing how Torchwood turned out.

That's half-true, the Stephen King one. He, discouraged, through it away. His wife found it, read it, and encouraged him to continue (helping him a good deal with the ins and outs of high school girl society). After that he sent it out (and, presumably, accepted, as I don't recall offhand any storie...

Technically speaking.... 50,000 words and above is considered a novel. 30,000 - 49,999 words is considered a novella. 10,000 - 29,999 words is considered a novelette Anything below 10,000 words is considered a short-story. Although individual definitions will vary. A lot of how it's perceived also r...

I think I wasn't irked by what you said so much as the way you said it. It just rubbed me the wrong way for some reason. And I've grown a little tired of the debate over the 5-7-5 format, although that's not really your fault. It's no problem at all. I understand where you're coming from on that. I...

Also, a favorite quote of mine that I think that you should consider:

I did not mean the comment that it wasn't a haiku in a derogatory manner, but simply did not realize that haiku's can have less than the maximum number of syllables per line. It was meant as a comment, and not a critique, which you've already highlighted was ill-informed. If you can't take a simple ...

Okay... I just realized that this wasn't a haiku due to the syllable count... and it's definitely not a hokku or a haikai. So I assume that it's very simply just a short poem? If you want examples of short poems that I feel are more engaging and evocative, you should take a look at A.D. Hope's "...

This honestly didn't really do all that much for me. I understand the limitations that you've placed on yourself in writing a haiku,but at the same time I don't think that you understand the form as it was intended, and just see it as a framework for a poem. A Haiku was a very high art, and their au...

Good luck with that, RHFay! I hope it all goes well. Yeah, Blake, especially as of late, is a literary figure of some interest to me. The Rossetti was a fantastic artist, but definitely was less of a poet than he was a visualist. I also read my brother's copy of the latest issue of Jubilat, and ther...
