A friend of mine on another site has had a serious medical setback over the past year or so. A condition that should have required simple surgery and a brief hospital stay turned into 5 month's worth of infections and complications, and he is still recovering. He and his family are financially exhausted and need some help.

Even if you can't help yourself, please help spread the word about his gofundme. www.gofundme.com/f5orco

Thanks, all.

I'm just here to show off my writing and to stare at the pretty pictures.

I don't usually thank people for faves, even though they're much appreciated, just because that's a conversation that never really goes anywhere. But I almost always reply to comments!

I just noticed that I've reached an age where most of my favorite media is created by people younger than me. It was inevitable, I guess.
Still don't know if I should post this rant. It's more personal than what I usually share.

A full 41% of likely voters for Donald Trump favor bombing the fictional city of Agrabah from the Disney film Aladdin. Only 9% opposed the idea; a cautious 51% put themselves down as unsure.

Republicans in general compared more favorably, as only 30% of Republican voters overall favored bombing a fictional medieval city back to... well, medieval times.

Unfortunately for Democrats, they do not get to claim the title "smarter than Republicans", but merely "not quite as blindingly stupid", since 19% of them supported using the full aerial might of the United States against this non-existent target. It's unclear whether this is because of a more pacifist streak in general, rather than actual awareness that Agrabah isn't a real place, since the poll didn't ask if respondents knew that.

American voters are clearly dumb as bricks. If Trump somehow manages to secure election, he is arguably the President we deserve.
Literary Review has awarded it's annual "Bad Sex in Fiction" award, and this year's nod goes to Morrissey for a severely un-erotic scene in his novel List of the Lost.
Eliza and Ezra rolled together into the one giggling snowball of full-figured copulation, screaming and shouting as they playfully bit and pulled at each other in a dangerous and clamorous rollercoaster coil of sexually violent rotation with Eliza's breasts barrel-rolled across Ezra's howling mouth and the pained frenzy of his bulbous salutation extenuating his excitement as it whacked and smacked its way into every muscle of Eliza's body except for the otherwise central zone.
I have to admit, "bulbous salutation" is a new one on me, and I don't think I'll be incorporating the imagery of the "giggling snowball" into any of my own sex scenes. Ever.

The only trouble is that I think the Review only gives out this award for professionally published work. Any examples of worse from the amateur or fanfic world?
... and then whine when their posts get locked. And then start a complaints thread about it, only to lock it while I'm typing the following reply:
You don't post digital art in the Digital Art forum. You don't post photography in the Photography forum. And no, you don't post literature in the Literature forum. If you'd bothered to read the forum rules -- you know, that post at the top of the forum with the title in boldface that says in allcaps "READ BEFORE POSTING - Literature Forum Rules" -- you'd have known that. Or if you'd even bothered to read the description on the main forum page, "For all literary discussions - poetry and prose" you might have figured out that, yes, it's exactly a literature discussion forum.

The regulars there might get rude from time to time, but we get just a mite tired of people who can't be bothered. Writers don't read, apparently. But no one was even rude to you. You got zero snark, and had your post locked with nothing more than the standard polite boilerplate. Stop being such a fucking speshul snowflake.

do not reply to this, ignore and hide if you want, you asked for proof, here is some. I am not saying that it is flawless, but at least I got you some, your proof for Atheism also has some er... issues, but I don't know how to say it without sounding like a jerk so, I'll leave that to someone else.

First, I don't recall asking for "proof" of anything at all.

Second, none of this proves what you want it to. Much of it is circular, or begs the question, or presents "proofs" long since discredited. The rest is either explicable by known natural laws, or amounts to, "We don't know, therefore God" which is among the silliest syllogisms the more ignorant of you believers try to cram down people's throats.

Third, I didn't "prove" atheism, nor did I attempt to. You assholes keep trying to reverse the proper burden of proof. All that's needed in support of atheism is to point that out. (And I'm not an atheist.)

Fourth, you already sound like a jerk for posting this nonsense to MY profile and then ordering me not to respond. Go fuck yourself.

The thread regarding aliens was closed. Would you like to continue the discussion? It was rather interesting, even though we disagree on a lot. You are fun to debate with

On this forum.deviantart.com/art/liter… my problem is that my ideas, even ones I see as my own, are usually too close to something I've seen before without knowing it. Now, I don't ask people to write for me, other than coming up with names (I'm really bad with names) but um, yea... I feel like sometimes, it's just hard to find that inspiration you were looking for, without your resulting work seeming too much like it. But that's just me.

Ideas are always going to be close to other ideas. As I said in the note, they're the foundation to a story, nothing more. What makes a story unique is what you do with your ideas, not the ideas themselves. This is less about inspiration than about work. If you put enough work into a story, it's not going to much resemble its inspirations.
