"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." Today leftists claim that being judged "by the content of their character" is "racist" which is ridiculous.

  • Can you have two different plotlines in the same novel?

    I'm considering finally getting around to writing out a story I've built up in my head for over a decade. It's a fiction Sci-Fi/Fantasy. It's also a really large scale story, as it takes place over various planets. My question is whether or not one book can effectively tell two separate stories.... show more
    I'm considering finally getting around to writing out a story I've built up in my head for over a decade. It's a fiction Sci-Fi/Fantasy. It's also a really large scale story, as it takes place over various planets. My question is whether or not one book can effectively tell two separate stories. Both storylines take place in the same universe and at the same exact time, but they take place on different planets. Because the overall story is so large in scale, the main characters from both storylines don't know each other, but eventually do cross paths down the line. Would dividing a single book into two simultaneous but separate plotlines be a bad idea? Thanks.

  • Is proof reading the same as editing and if it isn't how much should you pay someone for doing it for you?

    Best answer: No. Proofreading is finding mistakes; editing is fixing them. Proofreading looks for mistakes in spelling, grammar and punctuation, not anything that's at a higher level (poor word choices, inappropriate tone or style, factual errors, continuity errors, and so on). There are several types of editing. Copy... show more
    Best answer: No. Proofreading is finding mistakes; editing is fixing them.

    Proofreading looks for mistakes in spelling, grammar and punctuation, not anything that's at a higher level (poor word choices, inappropriate tone or style, factual errors, continuity errors, and so on).

    There are several types of editing.

    Copy editing fixes spelling and grammar (the same mistakes that proofreading finds). It normally costs around $5 per thousand words.

    Line editing fixes word choice, tone and style, and may include fact-checking and continuity checking. It costs around $10 per thousand words.

    Structural or developmental editing looks at the big picture - the overall structure of the book. In a novel, that would be plot and character arcs. It costs around $25 per thousand words.

    The rates I quoted are professional rates. If you find someone who's willing to give it a go, you could probably get away with paying them less than that. A professional editor will have his own price list. Don't ask for a discount unless he owes you a big favour.

  • Since liberals say a wall won't work, why don't they support ending sanctuary cities and birthright citizenship instead?

    Best answer: You want consistency from liberals?

    Walls protect Israel. Walls protected China. We already have walls and are just expanding their length and technology.

    I think liberals are so full of crap that they no longer smell themselves.

  • Why does the phrase "God can't.." exist?

    If God exists, then the word "can't" should never follow. I don't care how illogical, absurd, or unquantifiable the premise is, God is God so He should be able to do it. Up, down, all around, now, then, never again. All at the same time and never existing existence housed in a sort of infinity... show more
    If God exists, then the word "can't" should never follow. I don't care how illogical, absurd, or unquantifiable the premise is, God is God so He should be able to do it. Up, down, all around, now, then, never again. All at the same time and never existing existence housed in a sort of infinity type parenthesis. Logic- a weak obstacle to the powers of God.
