Writing Horrors & Health Horrors

March 16, 2009 at 2:30 pm (Uncategorized)

As we speak i’m attempting to work on a Ruby Gloom Lemon as a collaboration with a fellow Artist. Problem is that it may be delayed by quite a while. For some reason my body chose this week to completely fuck up for no reason whatsoever. Just brilliant – just when the University Work gets intense as well…

To people interested in my work, I can confirm Three are in the works. One just needs a rewrite (Beta), the second is halfway done (Alpha), and the third is still in planning. I can confirm the Ruby Gloom story will hit Beta (re-write required) – hopefully sometime this week so long my health improves somewhat.

My health is maybe a big factor – been big and slow may be the reason I run out of energy easily. Hopefully after I join the Gym this week, things should improve (and i’ll slide into an XL-size shirt just fine)…

Also, a tip from Kitty. DON’T BUY A PSP RIGHT NOW. Rumors state a UMD-less PSP 2 will be released later this year. If it does, PSP 1000, 2000 and 3000 prices will drop to rock bottom (£34.99 or so) as they will be obsolete. As will the UMD games – £4.99 per UMD doesn’t sound too far-fetched. Sure, i’ll be getting angry email from Sony fans from this statement, but its just a buyer’s tip to save you money.

Review: “Death From the Skies”

March 15, 2009 at 9:54 am (Uncategorized)

Recently I wrote a damning review of a story on a Forum which was absolutely terrible. Because I haven’t posted for a while (and the review in question is rather humorous), i’ve reposted it here for your enjoyment.

I must first say well done on the basics. Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation is perfect, and now the paragraphs have been properly inserted, its easy enough to read.

And that is all that is good about the story.

This piece really is the “Battlefield Earth” of Erotic Stories, and is ultimately one of the worst pieces of fiction I have read. The reasoning? It is just so goddamn boring. There is no pacing involved at all: paragraphs are spent harping on about a person’s autobiography before any events take place (within a short time frame). The descriptions are over-extended and read more like a Chemistry Textbook than a story. The storyline itself is made up of random anecdotes sewn together. Characters interact with each other without warning, and explanations have been left out entirely.

I referred to “Battlefield Earth” as I placed it in comparison to L. Ron Hubbard’s Science Fiction disasterpiece. It simply makes a statement for itself through what it features rather than the structure itself. What we are in for is a incredibly boring read-through where it takes ages to get to anything remotely exciting or interesting. The story is almost as long as Battlefield Earth itself: the entire size of it is way too big to make itself known as an Erotic Story. Most of the space is wasted, with details and bullet points pasted in just to increase the page count. Listening to a Used Car Salesman speak for 3 hours about Fuel Economy is more enjoyable, and just as intellectually motivating.

So in review? This is without a doubt the worst Erotic Story I have ever read. Sure, it may have better language than the horrors written in Script seen on the forums, but at least those are more interesting.
