Maybe he installed it on the outside to keep her in ?

I know they write with parts of their anatomy that shouldn't really be used for writing, but you'd think they'd at least remember what crap they'd spewed. This happens in all my books. All of them! Censored

I absolutely hate that kind of inattention to detail.

Hahahaha... wait, why am I laughing? I actually have to deal with this crapWeeping

Good idea though. I'd so like to lock all of them in a rickety old house, throw in most of my writers, too, and then get my hands on a bit of petrol and a matchbox... Angel

Mom, don't even get me started! You should see me when I'm going good (or maybe you shouldn't...), I think I may have started foaming at the mouth on several occasions. It's unbelievable.

Not only do they forget the crap they've written 20 pages ago, but then their equally dumb editors come along, decide to cut something out and no one even notices that there is no logical connection between one sentence and the next anymore. All of a sudden people who've been kissing, have to cross the room to get to each other... How exactly were they kissing then only a minute ago? I have so many examples like this, truly boggles the mind how anyone can be so unprofessional!

Oh I totally understand. I've noticed errors like that in stuff I've read (especially in erotica with no real story) but even in mainstream novels. I'll reread something like 4 times and going huh?

One story a woman was on her knees and her legs apart. Then her partner fucked her. Not from behind that much was clear from the text...So...she's on her knees and her legs are apart..but she's on her knees...did he shimmy under her? Does he have a hose instead of the proper appendage? Then he just stood up walked away.

The story was actually kinda good...until that point.

How was it made clear it wasn't from behind without clarifying where exactly he was? Maybe the writer was talking whether it was anal or vaginal, an not so much physical position/location?

Dear god! I'm definitely suffering from an extreme case of professional deformation!

My sex scene are usually way too detailed for anything to be unclear. I do have some major doubts about how physically possible some things are, in terms of sizes and other stuff, but that's poetic - or pornographic - licence, I guess. Unless it's the dumb erotica which I'm doing now, where sex is described as hurtling through a particle collider [Image: facepalm.gif]

Well I suppose the character had boobs like deflated balloons she was able ro contort over her shoulders so he could manipulate them orally. Then after there was the obligatory rising on his part to present his member for her to expertly clean with her mouth after the action...which of course she needed to do.

Inattention to details...it killed an otherwise enjoyable little story.

Well, I guess it serves me right for asking... [Image: th_smiley-shocked035.gif]

On an unrelated rant - the forum has been excruciatingly slow and sucky on Opera this last week or so. Even after clearing my cookies No

RE: Ranting corner
So, is Roger Ebert dead or is someone trying to be funny and failing pathetically?

I think that being a critic is one the most useless, pretentious, self-important "professions", but still...
