Explain to me why you write. And why writing is important.
The class size is pretty small there would be around 6-10 students so it's easy to spot the weak one. My knowledge of Shakespeare is pretty weak however I am very interested
I had a bad issue at work and have been offered money to squash it. However, I'm a writer and want to write a book about it. If I take the money I can never talk about it again. I do need the money too. Should I take the money or write a book?

*the romance subplot was cringey
*the over saturation of pop culture references
*that weird tirade against religion that is out of place in the book
*that even more bizarre masturbation passage
*Wade's Gary Stu status
*the book abandoned the framing device in the prologue (Wade explaining...
When I look for book to read on Amazon I always look at the bad reviews and ignore the good. 1 or 2 star reviews I find to be more truthful since authors can buy people or bots to leave good reviews just to hype up their book. Anyway, most of the bad reviews are people saying the story was full of cliche stuff....

I'm in my late stages of college, so that entails A LOT of homework. Back before college I read slowly but I did like to read.

Basically, my story is meant to be silly and random. In one chapter, I want to include a lesbian scene, but I'm worried it might put off my readers. If you were a reader just looking for a short, funny story, would you mind coming across a lesbian scene?

I would read it sounds like something original. Not only that you will have readers who can also relate. Not everyone is going to like the same thing especially if they are close minded. Its good to push the bounderies it keeps people from living in a bubble. Good luck with your book I hope it comes out good.
In a state of fury, Belly pushes Lilly against the wall of the classroom. Bella cages her in between her arms to stop Lilly from escaping.
I know it sucks! I hate it. Can you please improve it? Thank you.

Don't get me wrong, I like romance books. But why can't any of them be about normal guys who don't look like models? Maybe some who are nerdy or awkward or just some kind of variety. Maybe a guy who's nice and funny and goofy or something. They always do the same things too. Football player,...
I’m trying to come up with the powers for my antagonist? She’s supposed to be the epitome of beauty and elegance, but is terrifying at the same time. Beautiful chaos I suppose
