AGREE OR DISAGREE?

Sat Dec 4, 2010, 12:11 PM


....a correspondent has sent me a note critiquing my writing style, claiming that I am incapable of composing a sentence without including some sort of "opposite", and quite frankly I'm somewhat taken aback by this affront....
.....well, gotta be going---thanks for stopping by!

That's nonsense. I totally disagree. You're amazing ! You have your own unique ways.

I disagree! I rather enjoy your writing style. It makes your journals interesting and fun to read (and I hope you know yours is the ONLY one I read...for that reason most likely.)

I think some people are just jealous because they're not you. So. Keep being you. And as *Ailfinn said, navigate around them :)

I find your writing style to be eloquent and articulate. I am non-plussed as to the meaning of "opposite" used in this context and can only conclude that this person must be indicating that you employ oxymoron and contradictions when you write. I, personally, have never found this and I believe anyone who chooses to criticise your writing ability to be a complete...

Wait... I think I just got it. Very clever Mr. Rick. You certainly had me going. Well done.

But it just proves your masterful ability to manipulate the English language! Although I must say your puns are truly awful and in very poor taste. ;P

....and a HUGE HIGH-FIVE to the girl from New Zealand---the first to catch on to my (apparently) obtuse idea of humor. I can always count on you to take me to task for my awful puns, Rowan, and I wouldn't have it any other way...

...it seems to me that people often don't get my jokes because they don't SOUND like jokes, and because I write them as though I am writing a serious sentence and so they aren't looking for (or expecting) humor. I thought I set it up the gag pretty well, but it would seem that because the sentence SOUNDS serious, it is TAKEN seriously.

...oh, well....the people that count (HEY THERE, Z-LAND!!!) get it, and that works for me....
