Its alright c.y.b.
If I were speaking with an amateur athlete who wanted to be an Olympian sprinter, but who couldn't run ten feet without tripping over his own shoes and landing face-first on the ground, I would think it would important to recommend that before he worry about the Olympics, he first figure out how to not fall over. Being encouraging by saying, "No, dude, just keep at it and you'll be fine; you'll get there if you just keep trying!" seems both cruel and counterproductive.
A writer who cannot properly compose sentences is not, as far as I can tell, much different than a sprinter who can't stay on his feet.
I'm not telling monsterguy to give up writing. All I mean to do is suggest that if he wants to do it professionally, he has got to learn how to do a better job than what he's shown us. And it would probably be to his benefit to not toil over something he has no legal ability to sell, too. I don't see how it's discouraging to say that, or snarky; it's just realistic.
Anyways, if monsterguy is the kind of person to give up based on little old me being honest with him, then he doesn't have the drive it takes to be a pro writer in the first place.
E.L. James notwithstanding, it isn't something just anyone can do.
I never said i would give up on writing altogether, i said i was ceasing the scriptwriting until then
I will have to check it out
(For example, your very first post was spot on, IMO--initially what made me respond, was what came after that.)
Anyhooo... it looks to be all sweet n sorted, so I'll take my wee two cents and put it towards a block of delishy chocolate.

John, never give up. I mean it. Go write until your fingers ache.
Thank you lily
