9 Chickweed Lane
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! The stupid unicorn is back!
One thing I've noticed: if you can't write that well, stick to dialogue instead of third-person omnicient. Having a narrator tell your story, as I learned in a several years of creative writing seminars, is actually a lot harder than it looks and makes your writing talent more transparent. First-person voice and dialogue are easier because they're less abstract - the writer only has to think about how people would actually say something, not the best way to say something - and can be blamed on the character's voice.
That might explain why I've been so critical of this storyline in 9CL. That and the fact that I have no idea what's going on.
