    Re: Crit Groups

    Thanks, Dan Z, for pointing out my math error - good grief, 6 X 500 and I get 6,000. Don't I feel sheepish.

    Don't worry, I'm horrible at math too.

    We had MAT testing this week, and today was math computation. 1 hr and 45 minutes later, and only 30 problems, I had a headache afterwards.

    =O And I didn't even have time to check over my answers...

    Also, I think I missed something again (I'll not use any math this time)... I haven't seen anything to insinuate Ronto is being direspectful or insecure in any way. In fact, I think that for his age, he's shown higher level of maturity than many others we've seen come through here. I agree that he's looking for validation, but I think he's using tact in regards to the feedback he's received - both good and bad.

    I could hug you, but since you're a total stranger, I'll just say "Thank you!" for pointing that out.

    I'm not TRYING to be rude or disrespectful.

    Like I've said before, yes, my tongue is a bit sharp and my wit and humor is a bit uncalled for (or is it? =/) but I don't think I've said anything that could be classified as 'rude' 'disrespectful' or 'pugnacious'. Right?

    That said, Ronto, you did post way to damn much as far as sections of your book. I read some of the first posting and actually thought it was written well, I was pleasantly surprised. As you've pointed out, you've got some work to do, but I think you've got talent.

    =D

    Best feedback I've gotten on the actual story all week!

    But I've learned my lesson- post less than 1,000 words for an excerpt (at most) and only the bits you really want people to see/judge by.

    I'm very glad you thought it was written well, because it tells me I'm on the right track. =D

    Do the work. Follow the good advice you've received on this board. Finish the book.
    ---

    I've recieved a LOT of good advice here- and I intend to follow it. I don't know how long it'll take to finish the book, but judging from the replies I got here, finishing the book is only the beginning, isn't it?

    ^_^

    Well, Ronto, if you are a 14-year-old who is actually listening to advice...
    ...then, Wow!

    I'm impressed. And we're ready to forgive your impatient foot-tapping thing. :-)

    Mrmpf. rofl.

    Sorry, it made me laugh. Every time I remember the foot-tapping thing, I'm remembering this thing where someone says "Come to the dark side- we have cookies."

    But yes, even if I don't like taking my parents' advice (like drinking my milk) I'll take yours on writing.

    Because I did ask for it after all. =D
