By the way, exactly what cliche do you see as the problem here? Could you identify it more clearly?

comment How to become a productive/accomplished writer?
Well, admittedly, I can't say I'm not hinting, as John Smithers says, but I think that's valid.

@CraigSefton I'm glad you made that comment. But note carefully: I'm not in any way making any kind of judgment call about his dedication, drive, intentions, motivations, or attitude. I am, in fact, pointing out to him that it's essential for HIM to make that call!

comment Roadblocks in my story: The Gladys Tribe
Well, Lizzy, of course I could give you MY answers, but those would simply be things I made up, and that would be how I would write it. It would be MY version of the story, not yours. The questions are posed by story itself, and you, the writer, must answer them yourself.

See how much work it can be to write even a single sentence and do it well? :D ;)

Yet you did change the syntax around "pertinacity," thus improving it. Think carefully about using a word with such an effete and outdated feel, but at least now it's not exactly wrong. And you've changed the syntax around "reject" to make it correct as well, so now let me be your demon once more. Don't "try to" reject; you ARE rejecting; unsuccessfully, yes, but saying "try to" merely robs the locution of power. And in exactly the same vein, just forget "seemed to." It's useless, nothing but hot air. And lastly, consider making the clauses parallel: "The more this, the more that."
