This 'about me' will probably be updated when I have the time to edit every site-profile manually, and when I can be more active on the network.

Till then, this remains a placeholder account with all of my previous questions, comments, and whatever else is tied to my alias on SE.

comment Spiritual elements in a science-fiction novel
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Ghost in the Shell, Lake of the Long Sun (and the series), Star Wars, and Avatar-among others. I rest my case.

comment How can I reconcile the exposition of the three act scheme vs. starting out with a bang?
@LaurenI, Star Trek 2009, that's the one. I can't believe I confused 6 with 9! Oh, and ST 2 will have more lens flare; it's confirmed! (Note: FunMade!)

comment How can I reconcile the exposition of the three act scheme vs. starting out with a bang?
The 2006 Star Trek might have an answer. The movie basically followed a three act structure where the first act had two parts. The first part was highly action-packed/fast-paced but it was expository as well as to why the hero was destined to be a hero. It is essentially a Hero Journey, it just started a bit earlier than the hero was born. If your protagonist comes from a worthy/interesting family line, this start's even more fitting.

comment Is the following piece of text comprehensible and written in good style?
@JohnS, That was a good start! But seriously though, I think he meant the body text of the question. By critiquing the body text through which he presented the problem his problem, he wishes to see if he'd made progress at communicating his thoughts more effectively as it's a general process that doesn't pertain to a single piece of writing... How's that for changing voice?

comment Can a book be written without an antagonist?
It's my third, actually! The explanation's very appreciated. Despite reading quite a bit about the phonology and dialects of English, this never occurred to me. I think that's because "Imma" doesn't have an apostrophe...

comment Can a book be written without an antagonist?
@Aerovistae, I imagined "an antagonistic theme" as being a story where there's something to fight against but isn't necessarily conscious (like universally accepted morals even if wrong/natural disasters/anything you can't predict or expect with logic/etc...). Now about "Imma getchu!", I don't know what that means, I couldn't find out and I'm seriously curious.

comment Are there any specific rules to write Prequels and Sequels so that we don't end up with conflicting situations?
Strange it wasn't you suggesting Scrivener...
