Re: Yeoman's Poetry Repository

Freeform Reform Roses are red. Violets are blue. These kinds of poems, make me want to spew. Forget the rhyming scheme, maybe add some lines that make sense. Then throw in some metaphors, so that words become substance. I'd like to use this poem as a critique to what I think of a few poems around h...

Re: Experienced Roleplayer taking "Students."

As great as this sounds, how true can it be when you couldn't even find your own mistakes in your introduction? Believe the most fundamental rules is: Double-check your posts before posting. Though, guess it is kind of cool that you're available. >_>

Re: Discussion: Good 'Ol Days

There were even better days before Surrealchat. Quite a bit of irony in what's happened since then.

Probably the best I've read from you. I mean, it's cliche and short, but in this case it hits a harder topic than most.

Then you probably shouldn't be offering much advice based on that statement alone, or be selective in what you're advising.

Helping the community is great, and I commend you for it, but don't forget to help yourself along the way as well. Be sure to re-read your posts thoroughly and make sure that you, yourself, can understand what it is you're wanting us to comprehend because if you can't, then we probably wont be able ...

Re: Helpful Ryu-hints for roleplay romance

Not that informative, really, and that is bad. You gave one(horrible) scenario of four that are listed. This could probably be better understood if you wrote a detailed scenario of each, with their own separate post. Maybe brush up and fine-tune this thread a bit more to help better understand, or, ...

Re: Come Stay A While: Poetry

Co-writing with a friend. Tipping The Pail The last orange moments of the day catch rides on the backs of dragonflies to menace my path with their fleeting shadows. “Chirra chirra” sings the Frog King hypnotically from the long grass stems, “Won't you rest? Won't you rest?” But the woodpecker drums ...

Re: Thoughts In The Dark

Personally, despite the rhyme scheme, I loved the poem overall - or this first part. Second line, first stanza, I find reads better as,"your embrace, my delight" but that's nothing major. There were a few good lines, but I wasn't completely hooked on wanting to read a second part until com...

Re: The Dark Dragon Ninja, a story i wrote awhile back

I'd suggest not centering any part of this, portrays poorly, and the font color doesn't make it any spiffier.

Re: Come Stay A While: Poetry

I yearn the simple profound of my hand reaching, received and in return, tightly grasping. So that I am here knowing that I am to sense, formulating. Of my uncertain summing, until in my equation you are adding to my x its value determining, analogies for this hearts tender conceiving. Surely, never...

Re: ...

Do you like this poem, truly like it and wish it could be better? Are you still in the progress of revising it and if so, how many times do you plan to do this? Would you revise even further, or at least, play with the structure if a critique was given?

Re: I write;; I draw;; I dream;;

Seated front row, we're all gonna fall


Your best line in both poems, in my opinion. However, you need to work on punctuation and in turn, that will make both of these a far better read with a more complete impact.

Re: Training Hall-Arena OOC, Advice, Opponents and Camaraderie.

Why write a history for any character that isn't meant to be roleplayed with? I mean, when you're looking at a fighter's character bio are you really going, "What the fuck did they do seventeen years ago?!" It's a waste of time. <_<
