This is the aesthetic I'm after. This is such a wonderful time of year.

When I say "I can't deal with conflict," most people hear, "Conflict is a minor inconvenience at most and I can totally deal with it if you ask me enough times." What I actually mean is "Given the choice between writing a strongly worded letter and sawing my own arm off, I choose the former only because I lost my saw and asking who took it would probably lead to more conflict."

I've been reading a bunch of books from G+ authors recently, and these are some amazing books. I can't wait to start writing reviews. I'm surrounded by such skilled people. (I know I've been slow; my to-read pile at one point was taller than I am, not including all my digital books.)

Oh, now this is a design I love! Plus it's not super tall so I can actually reach most of the books. I don't know how people do those.

Heck if it's sturdy enough I might even stand on that little ledge about two rows up. >.>

Ugh. Is there a name for the trope where one person knows the truth about something, but no one believes them and everyone calls them crazy, even as mountains of evidence are punching them repeatedly in the face?

Down with miscommunication as a plot device. I need something more compelling than "The entire reason this conflict exists is that they could have taken like two minutes to talk to each other but didn't." Sigh.

Oh yeah, it can work sometimes, if done well. I just don't think it often is. +Kymberlyn Reed is absolutely right about romance. So often I see it forced into the plot like the writers are trying to push a square block through a round hole. It comes up out of nowhere and makes no sense contextually, but suddenly you have conflict to drive the story forward. It drives me nuts.

I don't mind it nearly as much in comedies. I'd still like to see it done well, but at least with a comedy I go into it with the expectation that silly things are going to happen. :P

That's the kind of sound that makes me go from 0 to "I want to stab you" in no time, so I wish peeves like this were tangible just so I could punt them as far away as possible.

This rages me as well. If I can see the person (yes, situations arise when they can be heard but not within sight, double ugly) and they are also man-fisting the fork or spoon, I really have to wonder.
Interestingly enough, I read then posted about the new crop of adults who weren't raised in settings of polite customs, way back in the beta days of G+. The issue came up when talking about college grads, new hires to good positions in good companies. For many years previously, HR didn't have to worry or wonder about the personal social habits of it's hires. Now, after much embarrassment, they must. Lunch/dinner meetings, with clients or higher ups, when the new folks, have no table manners are awkward! People honestly need to be tutored in social skills to advance.

Sometimes I like the warm, cozy places, and other times I like those sweeping rooms with lots of space and natural light. This is perfection in the second category. (Except maybe change the couch to face the trees so nothing can sneak up on me. You know something lives in there.)

Hmm. I could see how that might fit. I thought it might be a little too modern, but after another look, I think that'd work. (I'm torn on whether I like the smell myself, but weird, nahhhh.)

+Bob Lai Yep, I remember the truck thing. I woke up to a text from my friend going "Someone stole a big rig full of explosives and they're in a high-speed chase right now." The results were anti-climactic compared to that.

I do like those guidelines. Having worked with multiple papers, unfortunately the emphasis was on getting the story out first and having it be the top story. It sucks.

Introduction
Hello! My name is Kay Solo, and if I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked if I’m related to Han, I would have a lot of dollars.

I’m just someone who writes for a living, enjoys gaming more than is probably healthy and occasionally takes photographs. I edit, I do other stuff and now I’m blogging on WordPress, though my activity is anything but regular. I love exploring psychology, dreams and sleep, which is part of what inspired one of my book series, The Dream Sanctum. For work I ramble about politics and current events, and I have gotten a surprisingly low amount of hate mail as a result.

You can find me on Twitter, my personal website and my Amazon author page.

If you're interested in my editing services, you can find my website here.

I live in Southern California, which means ten months of complaining about the heat, two months complaining about the cold and twelve months complaining about the traffic.

My dislike of the Oxford comma has earned me more enemies than any other opinion, but I hope you like what you see. Thanks for visiting!
