If I could write you? I would request to be a proofreader for you. Not an editor yet, no experience. But I would also hope to be able to try that later for you. But you do not ever allow feed back SO?

If you mean Pars001 - go to the Authors page, select letter P, find his listing, and there's an email link there to send him a message through the SoL system. I can't find a Paroo1.

I don't know if he recently changed it, but currently Pars001 accepts feedback. So you simply can respond to him using the link below his blog entry.

Thankfully that is one habit I don't have. Although I can and do make up for it by having a ton of other bad habits.

I will take this time to thank you for the good reading materials you have shared however.

How many of these gifts are there? What kind of benefits does being a gods gift convey? And is there a sign up form or application process? Just Kidding!

As far as I know, every poster on this forum is one of 'Gods gifts to the writing world'. Except REP and awnlee jawking, they confessed to own mere average skills. Of course, humility aside, I'm a tremendous gift as well.

Average writing skills. However I like to think I'm above average at editing and proofreading. Except my own work, of course ;)

1-bombers undoubtedly consider themselves to be the Gods and Arbiters of the Literary World.

Undoubted only by themselves. I say, they are heretics and should be burned alive on stakes! I miss the good old times.

Damn, I forgot the smiley.

"What's your poison?" is local vernacular asking someone for their preference. It's usually invoked when buying a round of drinks in a pub but my implication was 'What writing gift would you like from God?'

However, 'gift' is allegedly the German word for poison. So my question was a twofer.

Why would you desecrate a perfectly good piece of meat like that?

Crispy isn't desecrated; you just have to preserve the meat from drying-out.

Anything past medium rare is heresy.

I have found that Gifts as considered by some. Can also be considered as a Curse by the recipient of the gift. It seems there is always a cost attached to the gift. Not always obvious but a cost non the less.

I am I the only one starting to feel like this thread has fallen into a Dolcett universe?
