Man, I love flouncy writer wank if only because it acts as a reminder that I should keep my own flouncy writer tendencies in check. I think a lot of us have been there, getting defensive at crit, being upset when SOMEONE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND OUR PURE GENIUS SOULS, emoing when someone gives you less than stellar feedback. But the trick is to remember that those reactions are flouncy writer tendencies and are not to be listened to.
Also, I got to listen to Fareed Zakaria be smrt today and sat around in a nylon solar panel. With a hat. No, I'm not officially graduated yet.
