Possible?


Hmm, sounds like a romantic comedy. In which case my chapter will have the sassy yet sweet space dragon to dole out the love advice.

Forewarned is not necessarily informed. At least not enough to make a decision.

There over 4,800 informative examples of my nonsense in these forums. If that isn't enough you might be a bit indecisive…

Mr Piggy,

I've been thinking (not sure how I keep doing that given the lack of brain encasement), if the muse won't … muse … then can the writer {i]create[/i]? Isn't the author/muse relationship much like that of life/oxygen? Maybe not for real writers, but for those like say … me.

:(

Well, you can't force someone to give you a good musing; that's illegal. I understand automusing is a popular solution if you have no alternative. I'm pretty sure there are websites you can browse to help you with the process.

Depends how small that grouping is, I suppose.

I'm pretty small the "like me" group is best expressed as "0 < X < 2"

At least for the sake of all humanity I hope that is the proper expression.

If you're real, then it is. If you're natural, a better choice'd be "0 < n < 2" :lol:
