    Jesus Christ, you guys really HAVE to start digging at me on a day when I'm already incredibly irritated, don't you?

    Of course human beings are social animals. But notice that not everything is quite a social activity. Porn's a huge example, when you really think about it.

    First off, I don't consider writing to be a strength of mine. I do consider music to be a strength of mine, which is why I do occasionally show off at school (okay, so I'm vain about it :() but that doesn't really detract from the fact that my primary purpose in studying music is for my own enjoyment, not for my parents', my friends', or teachers'. I don't do it to win competitions or praise. This is an indirect side result of me studying piano since I was 4, plus all the really good people live in Phoenix (a city north of Tucson in Arizona.)

    The same applies to my writing. Its primary purpose is for my own self-expression and enjoyment, because writing is one of the few activities that I consistently enjoy. Whether I choose to share that or not with friends is my own choice and more importantly, my own business. I really have no idea why you two are intent on trying to get on my nerves when I'm rather upset as it is over my novel's file being corrupted.

    In other words, say something useful or shut the **** up because I'm really unable to deal with it today. I'm sorry.

    Aren't you all chewing at the same argument but from different directions? You're either drawing or writing for pleasure and self-expression. You're then sharing it either with your friends or a wider audience because they've asked or you'd like a bit of feedback. If you're not careful you'll end up fighting over the last scrap of argument and sharing slobber *shudders*

    Could you please quote me on such things...

    since youve already proven to be callous and cold hearted i wouldnt expect you to understand, but some of us actually use their powers for good.

    In my way thats using my ability to annoy the crap out of you to distract you from a distraught situation to one where there is a candidate to yell at catharticly.



    But yeah, fine, whatever.

    No I didn't. What I said is what you read. I specifically said that if I posted every person who I thought had amazing art this thread would have a lot of pages.

    There is no implication of any such hatred towards posting other users. You're seeing things that are not there. Plus I'll clear it up for you now: I don't hate it.

    This is "cathartic" yelling?

    I put two years of my life into the rewrite. Four, if you're counting the original.

    And now it's gone.

    Maybe you might understand why I'm not in the mood to argue if you think about that for a bit.

    No, it really isn't.

    @ Met: Please just shut up. No one wants to hear a "I told you so" when 2-4 years of work has been lost.

    Well fine, if you dont appreciate my attempts to reconcile you through distraction and catharsis then a simple

    I hope you can get your book back,


    will have to suffice.

    I swear word files also have auto backups of files that have been corrupted and stuff. I'm not sure the exact detail, but some corrupt files of mine have been "recovered" through some random shit the computer did.

    Alas I'm not an expert on that topic...
