I know and that was the very intention behind the initial narrative of the story. You know just as much as MC does.
I would love to have one. But the question is, who will pay for him? You? If yes, reply to the comment and I will hit some of the good ones I know up. And if you want to slap me with "eDiT yOuRsElF" then I will have you know I have 3 other ongoing projects that I write daily for, and this novel is the only one I have absolutely no profits from at all. Not going to invest real money in it (or the time that directly translates into money) before I see it's worth doing so. I know it sounds awful and coldhearted, but I have this quirk that I don't really like being hungry or sleeping under the bridge so I have to take financial aspects into account.
Because his current situation fits his purpouses? Because by selling it, he can obtain more than he would be training himself? Because he doesn't want to draw attention with sudden and unexpected growth? Pick one
Hey mate, I tried everything to somehow recover this review, but no matter what I did, it didn't work. If it wouldn't be too much of a problem, it would be lovely if you could repost it (just delete or leave the old one), since it appears to be the easiest solution to the problem, and I don't want such a great review to be bugged out.
Sorry mate, never heard of it.
Initially, I was going to bother responding to it in any way. Then I remembered why I stopped responding to that Weezyf guy comments and even went to the church (surprisingly rare for me now to do so) once he claimed to drop the novel. I really don't have the power to answer the questions about the paragraph that were answered in literaly the previous sentence, and that's the level of the points this guy brings. While I won't force you to read nor claim you will like it (since everyone has their own tastes so I cannot judge that) but please, do yourself a favour and read the story yourself instead of relying on the opinion of someone who came to my novel expecting linear and simplistic, obvious from the first look type of plot. Because this novel is not like this and it pains me to even mention it as it should be damn obvious by this point.
I just checked and even asked a friend of mine to do it, but it does not appear on the page. I will ask the editors to fix it.
Allow me to ask, did you delete this review? Because it seemed implausible for someone to put so much effort into writing one only to delete it right after. If not, then for some reason it does not show on my page, and I'm only capable of viewing it through my notifications. I'm asking because it's one of the best reviews I could ask for - accurately pinpointing the struggles that I didn't even realise I had. And for that, no matter what its score was (I don't see it in notifications) I couldn't be any happier with it. It might be true that my attempt at keeping the deeply realistic perspective in 3rd person simply failed. This novel was my first attempt at writing in third person instead of the first one ever since I basically started writing for serious, and even with my newest novel returning to the trend. Either way, if you deleted it, then whatever your reasons might be, thanks for pointing out the stuff I can work on! But if this novel wasn't deleted (or, for example, posted on Ficoll which is my only other guess at what could be the case) then I will make sure to try to solve this problem.
Dang, potatoes xD But while it doesn't work as the figure of speech, its possible. You boil some water, put the tomatoes in it for a while and then just kinda rub the (fore)skin off (xD). Usefull when you are doing your own sauce for the pizza.
Everything on the surface is wiped out, but the ruins remain. And now that I see which chapter you commented on - there was a mention that Martha and her people left the place because it was dangerous due to that huge explosion of the fuel generator that Krist caused.
Basements are basically rooms that are put below the entire house - as such, you need to climb down the stairs that lead to a room underground. With everything at the surface smashed to the bits, the entrance to the basement itself is hid in the hmm... You know, kinda tunnel? Bunker? A long but narrow hole in the ground where the stairs are.
