Reply So now we know where E.L James success came from? P.S. that silver phallus in the background did not hurt either Reply Enable subtitles, I dare you. Reply nice talk Reply No, I don't care to disrupt my readers' home life; that is moronic. I merely wish to entertain myself, and if others are also entertained, fine. Reply awesome Reply That was a fantastic talk. Lots of great things to think about. Wonderful thoughts and clear presentation. I will use this, especially the advice about readers, in my own work. KYM Reply I like to give let my friends read my stories first. My only problem is that one of my friends is awfully mean in her critiques (she doesn't tell you what's good, only what's bad and uses words like awful, horrible etc.) and I don't feel that she's helping me to progress in any way. Does anyone know if I'm supposed to accept her comments (that never seem to change, no matter how hard I try) or should I just stop letting her critique my stuff? Maybe I'm just very bad at writing? Reply is this a sign language course or a reading course? just playing of course…good advice from a successful author. all points taken, thank you sir.

There's no book that good, unless your wife is a hag. Reply ooooh a rocket! Reply I started to get a little bored at 5:30. LOL. j/k. 😉 Reply I thought you said (about the Shamans) 'They were fat'. I had to watch it like 5 times omg xD I found that way too funny. Great advice by the way – thanks!! :') Reply @ZachClooney Because the actual knowledge of what to do is easy. Everyone can learn it in one afternoon. The tough part is execution. Reply "Want the reader to be so engrossed" Yet he rambles on for half the movie before actually getting to a point.
