Re: Corrupt a wish(not what it sounds like)

Granted. You're having a blast until someone's dog grabs the frisbee and runs off with it. You never see the dog or your frisbee again.

I wish I owned my own cable news channel.

Re: punctuation

I agree with the post above me. The tone of the work can shape the sentence structure. A third person narrator who is telling the story without any shade of characterization might work with the more formal tone, the first sentence with the commas. On the other hand, if the narration is reflective of...

Re: Fey/American Culture Conflict

Thanks for replying! I imagined the story being both a political drama and an action oriented. Main characters include the President, the leaders of the Fey, and various people caught in the conflict once it goes south, a US soldier, a Fey soldier, a human in the Fey desired territory and a Fey chil...

Re: US Combat Troops Leave Iraq

Amen to that. I'm sure we can all give a sigh of relief that this is all but over and hopefully the Iraqis can take care of their country and the healing can begin. Least I know I won't be sent to Iraq now.

Re: The human egg*

Scrambled? Sunny-side up? I want to know! Joking aside, I enjoyed this. Whatever the egg is it seems odd that the main characters would use it as a meal, but that makes it interesting and rather humorous as well.

Re: Is fantasy easier to write than science fiction?

I agree with the above. Science fiction isn't really harder to write than fantasy, but many people think it is harder. Fantasy writers do often have the habit of simply borrowing Tolkien, D&D, or classical mytholgy settings and charcters for their stories. It gives them a base to work from and it is...
