I personally have never called you a genius if that makes you feel any better, but if I do, I promise to read your work first.
Genius comes in many forms. Got to agree with, Cardisa, though. When in Rome do as the Romans....engaging with the HP community more will help to spread word of your particular brand of G.
1. Never trust the opinion of friends, they are never going to say anything negative about your work.
2. Bear in mind that many people will say a piece of artwork, poetry or performance is "genius" merely because they don't understand it, and they're afraid that could mean it's brilliant and they're stupid. Even though the reverse is more like the truth.
I read... even quoted. I'm not seeing genius.
HOW about this one Melissa? ill be fine with intellectual
Cold Bright tunnel then POP, abyss or mountain view ahead.
Who knows, when forward and behind are yellow lights.
Old sayings but untold stories are the ones that turn it red, dead.
I'm laying here spoiling myself thinking a spares in the trunk but fight.
It was British racing green, like the Spanish fucking flu, meant to be.
I could give a shit less. Worn out or police spikes, anything in between.
I’m an artificial robot building myself up, strong rooted tree.
Tank pumps hate from this half hope, complete demise.
Hell is right here, that halfway point in the race to lead.
I used to, it was great, that neosporin breeze outrunning shame.
I've galloped and sang, I've triumphed, but for more I plead.
Just waiting to take my claim.
Comedy bit, maybe....definitely a work of G. Practice your English and lines like 'girls like small things like babies and big things like d*cks' might be found offensive by some. You might want to excise that one and other similar lines. Just sayin' as they say.
i put in bad stuff mostly out of hopelessness but also to make the other stuff look REALLY GOOD thanks, you know its funny though, i could have easily gone with houses
He might also want to remember that the stage directions in a screenplay really aren't meant for artistic endeavors. That is, of course, unless his artistic endeavor involves having to have his screenplay surgically removed from whatever convenient orifice an actor/director/set designer chooses to place it in.
I agree but you sound contrite or jealous... I say sound to not sound like you.
Not contrite or jealous. Sorry.
I've noticed working with other writers, especially poets, that there is an occasional tendency to overestimate one's talent. Not saying you don't have talent, I'm saying that it's not really genius level. The fishing for complements thing never works out well either. What you are essentially doing is saying "Tell me I'm a genius or I'm going to get defensive."
And what the hell is a neosporin breeze?
OMG herbal remedies for cancer, that is really effing sad, people pay up to 20 thousand a month for chemo i can not believe they havent read your page about stuff they could grow themselves
Nor, apparently, did you. If you don't want critiques, don't ask for them.
If you just want people to tell you that you are a genius... I suggest asking your friends their opinion.
1 nor is used incorrectly
2 i did, my father actually wrote THE book on alternative medicine, and he doesnt believe it himself
3 i didnt ask for critiques i asked for input
4 im open to critiques
5 Ive already been called a genius
6 I dont have friends
7 you are ugly inside and out
sorry the entirety is poor english "Nor, apparently, did you."
LOL, OK then. Well, good luck with that whole genius thing. Let me know how it turns out. Have a good day.
'Surgically removed' is a scary thought for a man of G.
not as scary as someone who dedicates their day to a website
Confucius say...any man not scared of the term 'surgically removed' is not a man of G.
Keep on writing, foemeno, your really pretty good and quite interesting.
winters are uninspiring follow me back ill be working again in no time, thanks
If you can't be bothered to spell-check and capitalize your comments, I cant be bothered reading your articles. Genius? Huh!
How dare you say writers are uninspiring, when some of the best writers on this site have responded to you? We could assume you are referring to them. You can't see outside your own ego that others might be more capable than you.
I suspect you are what might be termed in the UK, "care in the community". Good luck!
Self analysis tells me recently that once i started writing that the winters are always tough, smoking doesnt help. I wouldn't care if it were true or not either way I feel I am an outcast and it wouldnt help you to say i wasnt because I am, But from what I remember thinking in the summer is that words have many different meanings, to me an immigrant who can barely speak his own language let alone english fixes my car with a wad of gum he just so happened to have been chewing is enough to call him a genius, he wouldnt care what the word meant just that i had a smile cause i could now drive home... see
Well I wouldn't say you weren't, anyway. It's not my place to judge you. If you think you are, then maybe you are.
I am an outcast too, so I know how you feel, maybe. Good luck on your writing, I will check out your hubs later when I have a bit more time.
Have a nice day:)
Being called a "genius" or not is of no importance at all. What matters is whether you are happy and whether you are doing good in the world.

When people call their Hub a "blog" do you comment on it?I see people writing about how they are starting a blog here on Hub Pages, and I am tempted to leave a comment that Hub Pages is not a place for blogs, or to send them an email that this is not for blogs, but Haven't. It...

I was looking at some forum posts tonight and I've come to realize that no one seems to notice the second 'L' in my name, as in WRYLILT. I am repeatedly referred to as WRYLIT.(With the exception of Misha. )So I'm just wondering, how do people misspell or mispronounce your name that really bugs you?

Does it bother you when people call any short poem a haiku?As a haiku poet, does it bother you when people write a short poem, usually one that follows a 5-7-5 syllable pattern, and call it a haiku? Don't you wish people would learn what haiku is? I love the form, but I'm usually let down by what...

What does having an IQ above 145 mean? Are these people really 'genius'?
