But I wasn't talking to you. And you've already said that. Must everyone conform to your personal views?

What good does it do to "finish" a manuscript if, because you're not aware of the craft of writing that's been centuries in the making, you're still using the book-report writing skills we learn in school? The structure will be wrong. You'll be head hopping, telling, and in general, writing something that will be rejected before the end of page one, just like over 95% of what's submitted. Seems a waste of time.
