re: TENSOR ZINE #2
Though I'm not as harsh as roganize usually is (We do love ya man), I agree here.

This post is a good example of bad formatting. I could name about 5 or 6 people and most of their posts look like this.

Formatting is important. Use punctuation. Use propper grammar and caps. Don't put a single word on a line by itself unless it breaks that way before a paragraph. For your education, in AP Style, that's called a "widow".

Maybe I can code a "proofing editor" mode that goes in and makes tons of red marks on stories ;)

Seriously though, we need to improve the quality of the formatting. As for quality of the content. That's what feedback is for. We will make formatting rules more strict. And we'll also encourage you through feedback to improve your content, quality of writing et al.

The goal of the site, after all, is to help you improve your writing, and that's what we'll do!

You have a choice
A great opportunity has befallen you, Mr. Kickflip. You probably just don't realize it yet.
Have you ever seen interview with singers or athletes who say that when they started out everyone told them they sucked? Well, now that can be you depending on what you do from here. You can walk away from lit.org and never write again, or you can flip everyone the mighty one finger salute, and work hard to improve.

I hope you choose the second option, and if you do I hope you take this advice. First, don't use capitals to separate people who are talking. Use quote marks--ya know those things you've learned in english class. Or you can use the interview format commonly seen in Playboy, without quote marks. Example:


TZ: (magazines use intials to represent themselves) How did you become a pro?

Elemental Boy: I worked real hard to win contests and competitions at different skate parks.

TZ:How would you encourage small skates?

Elemental Boy: I'd teach them tricks.

Do you see how that is more coherent?

One more thing about writing. You have to assume you're readers are complete idiots, because...well... we are. That means gives us detail. You may think that everyone knows the sky is blue, so why do I have to say. Because the sky isn't always blue. Sometimes its grey, and black or sometimes its blue with a little or a lot of clouds. You see, if you don't tell us, we can't know.

I hope that helps, and I hope you don't give up on writing. It takes great courage to put something in writing, and post it to a site where everyone in the world can read it. The downside is you're going to face criticism. The upside is you can develop a skill that can bring you and your readers alot of pleasure.

Now its up to you.
