Pinker's book looks interesting and fun. (How sad does that sound!?)
I just wanted to say something... Please do.
Congratulations to you both on a job beautifully done.
I never quoted a published source verbatim; the example I posted was my own work. Yes, it was. And a very fine example, too.
The preposition "onto", as one word, is acceptable if we are referring to something "to the position of", or, "on the surface of".Examples: "He fell onto the floor." "His mouth latched onto her nipple." However, if we want our preposition "onto" to mean "onwards and towards", we write it as two separate words. Examples: "Let's move on to the next question." "I hope to go on to university once I leave school." This is an excellent explanation. And yes, it works the same way here in the United Snakes. On a general side note, those quoting examples verbatim from published sources really need to cite them.That's how I was taught in England. If the US rules differ, please elaborate. This is an excellent explanation. And yes, it works the same way here in The United Snakes.On a more general side note, anyone quoting published sources verbatim really needs to cite where it came from.
Eyes stare hard is perfectly fine. It's just not the most effective writing. As something to throw out to illustrate a grammatical example, it serves its purpose just fine.To say "eyes stare" or "eager hands" is called synecdoche. A glare is hard, but a stare is only when you look at something (or nothing) for a long time.What Chrissie says here is all sound, although there's some confusion in the last part between participial phrases and progressive verb forms.But fuck it. I most appreciate that Chrissie approaches a topic that to most people is about as pleasant as shoveling mud with your face, yet she does so with a light and positive attitude to make it seem less threatening. The vast majority of people learn to hate reading and writing because they're mistakenly taught that their technical errors are more important than they really are and diminish what they're trying to say. Yeah, yeah, yeah...this isn't to say that something can't be written with total incompetence and end up being incomprehensible. Sure. Good grammar and good writing may overlap to varying degrees, but they are distinctly different creatures."A language is not a logical set of scientific formulas or rules; it is a complex, flexible instrument of communication based on traditions and preferences." Betty Azar
In order, lol: visioneer, FrankLee and Cleo el Gato. All extremely close though! Thank you most kindly, Ms Doll. :)
It works perfectly now. Thanks very much Gav. And adding on another note of thanks to Gav for all that hard work and perseverance. Your work is a benefit to us all.
a few things - we don't do fan fiction.also, i don't recall if i meant to suggest it and forget or if i actually did suggest it, that we do a comp where past winners and mods are exempt? i think it's something i wouldn't hate seeing, honestly. If the idea is to make it a "new" talent comp, then why not even limit the time contestants have been members. Open to those who've been members no more than a year by the date of the comp deadline. Maybe even Liz will think the fresh meat angle will have that sexy zombie appeal.
We were eating on the same side of the table again because she likes it like that but I like the other side because I get to see more of her face but I never say this and sit where she asks me to because of how she gets this smile that makes the air feel like something else but still made of air like air you don’t mind being inside of And I never talk about ...

“Show me.” She looked at her knees without talking. Her earlier confidence was gone. Sitting on his kitchen chair, she could’ve been a whole other girl. “Cannot.” Her accent was less pronounced in short replies. She’d been studying English half her twenty years, but it was only her first week in an English speaking world. “You can. It’s simple.” “Not simple.” Despite...

The way she was breathing kept her tits heaving under their own excessive weight. Her eyes were hooded to slits. She might have looked furious if she’d had clothes on. He wanted to scoop her opulent mounds into his hands and squeeze until she whined he was squeezing too hard, but his hands were planted on her wrists against the mattress and his arms were fencepost straight, holding...

All twelve stood at the bank trying to gauge the drop over the ledge to the river in quarter moonlight. Lashed together wrist-by-wrist, they’d only drag each other down and no one would make it out alive. But the dogs were getting closer, and so was the time to either jump or wait and be taken back to the compound. Jagger, the one who’d convinced the others to run when the rare...

Empty brick factories were falling down around her. Glory days abandoned. Hungry souls watched from every broken window. The black thigh highs were balled up in the same hand with her clutch. They were only a couple shades darker than the tone of her bare thighs. The spikes she’d been wearing dangled from the other hand. It was a couple more hours to sunrise, and the cement still...

“Mina. Come in here, please.” Although he was in the next room, his tone was soft and low, as if he’d been standing beside her. He’d called her to the living room with the same words numerous times by now, and she was almost always apprehensive. So often, it seemed she’d done something wrong and he’d recite instructions with soft patience while she stood before his easy chair in whatever...

She walked in the house without speaking a word, her pneumatically pumped hips and tits rocking in a counterpoint of viciously quivering girl flesh. In a thin, tight, tank style t-shirt dress – neckline cut nearly to her deep brown areolas, hem a scant couple of inches past her flexing round ass – she was an almond skin, chocolate brunette fuckdoll. Fallon stood in silence against the...

He was thinking about that rickety set of wooden stairs going up the side of the house. Rickety house. Rickety love. Then the train banked at speed and Bill listed sideways into a much bigger, dark-skinned man sitting a space away. The man hardly budged. Bill was sure he was the only one in the entire car who swayed as far as the train. He mumbled a garbled apology and righted himself...

The jet black Z3 was eating up shoreline like a ravenous hawk, but Hayden decided to pull off the highway. Cutting his speed and easing onto one of the winding side roads, he stole another glance at Diva. She had the passenger’s seat reclined half way while she stared at the roadside in silence. She was close enough to reach out and touch, but the rest of her was somewhere far away from there. ...

Jimmy was flat on his back with his head under the front end of the Fairmont. He was trying to loosen a rusty bolt at an odd angle. “ Fuck .” As soon as he spat the word he spotted a small pair of lime green sneakers in front of the car. Lime green sneakers, white socks and the sapling-like shins of a child. A ratty looking teddy bear was hanging down beside the shins. He put down...
