God you are such a whore I mean really...
I'm joking. Like I said, I appreciated your criticism, at least on my work as a whole. I realize that I've kind of fallen into that archetype, but those are usually just the ideas that pop into my head. And I've never really thought about repeat readers, so the newbies always compliment it and connect, lol.
I WOULD like to argue against the whole gloom thing, though. I've written numerous pieces that don't really have any gloom in them: bounce bounce bounce, beep beep beep, peer pressure, ambushed, professionalism, 'didn't really stretch my imagination', and 'what is this I don't even' are all pretty much cheerful pieces, with professionalism being a possible exception.
