Woah woah woah. This thing fairly exploded in, like, 2 days.
Ok, I don't have time to read it all right now, but lemme just throw something in about an issue you guys seem to be having...
Perhaps the "horror movie description" paragraph was a bad example of my writing. Most of the other stuff (essays) seemed too long. And yes, I like BBDino's thing. But he (and you guys) misunderstood, kinda. I basically did "Thesaurus-ize" the original text. Except I mainly used my head (= claim to fame) as opposed to an actual Thesaurus. :P
I couldn't provide the original to you, which is a shame. Basically, I didn't want to cut any of his sentences out (the original author's), so yes, I agree, it's too long and wordy.
(Although I tend to be too wordy also... :P)
Perhaps I will get to the rest of this later. Bleh, you guys are fast.
