The vast majority of the writing I have seen on this website is worth less than the change I left upon your mother's nightstand. That means that, by statistical likelihood, your writing probably sucks too.
  
  Not in whole, mind you, but when it comes to a few of the trickier bits, you find yourself staring at a blank screen and scowling like a madman. 
  
  I, on the other hand, am damned good at this writing stuff. So, out of the bottomless generosity of my heart, I decided to try and help your plebeian self. 
  
  Plot exposition, character development, show versus tell, and all the little things that experienced writers know already. These are the secrets I'll drop on your lap in a vain attempt to make you learn a thing or two. 
  
  I'm tired of reading all the crap on this site; don't let your work be part of it.

I appreciate your honesty, it's hard to find people who will actually just say what they mean.

Actually it's not a bad thing you want to be praised, we humans thrive to be praised. It's what it means to be human.

Can i ridicule the mistakes you made in this first *chapter? I get feeling and being high and mighty about the oh so serious art of writing but when you are that way, a self proclaimed jerkwad, then back it up with you own FLAWLESS writing! Just saying.
