  1. Thank you all for your replies. There's plenty to think about there and i massively appreciate all of your comments. To answer a couple of points/questions: I don't know what kind of writer i am as i've never finished any of my major projects. Years ago i was part of a creative writing group so i was massively in to writing poetry (i'm not saying i was any good at it, but i did enjoy it...), but i've never finished an actual story that i've started. Most of the time i start to write and it flows until i get stuck. I've started three stories in different genres: '50s detective; sci-fi and fantasy and they all start the same way, in a bar/inn of some sort. I start them and have an idea for the endings... it's just working out an interesting/entertaining way of how to get from one to the other. I've got the audiobook version of the Stephen King book but only prt the way through it (don't hate me - i got a deal where it was 99p and i could have Audible for three months). But, i will investigate the other suggestions. And, yes, my Satanic side has softened over time, even though i still agree with much of it.
  2. Greetings, everyone Does anyone have any tips on how to progress a storyline? I've got loads of projects started but, after so long, I run out of inspiration as I struggle to come up with ideas, plot points and characters etc. I never seem to struggle to come up with an initial idea or a protagonist, hence why I have half a dozen things started, they just never get very far before I find it all too much and my attention switches. I also can't decide on the medium for a story - I might start writing it as a novel and, so far in to it, I feel it might work better as a script for a film. I've just come back to one that I thought was going to be a book and I don't know whether it would work as a comic book... I've tried looking online for tips and there are a million different people all saying different things, so I thought I'd put a shout-out on here for 'normal' people to help me. I'm happy if you want to PM me and we can have a bit of back-and-forth about it. Cheers in advance
  3. I thought calling people names was for kids... #bekind
  4. The problem is that it takes so long and costs so much for SCC to take back possession of a property. And there are people living in properties that are too big for their NEEDS, but they see it as their home so why should they downsize to allow people who need it to have it. The council receive a lot of criticism when it's actually tenants who need to change their attitude and expectations towards social housing.
  5. How else do you expect people to bid for SCC properties?
  6. I always use Martin Lewis' website - Money Saving Expert. Loads of info and advice. You can also join his free Credit Club which tracks your credit score and history. It's not perfect, but gives a good indication of how successful you'll be when applying for credit.
  7. He may disapprove of gay marriage and be all Christian and stuff, believing the crap in the Bible... But, what if he was actually able to put that aside for his job and help people whose lifestyle he disagreed with? I get paid to help people from all backgrounds, whether i believe in their life choices/religion/political leanings etc. or not. I personally disagree with the geezer's beliefs, as i'm atheist and everything, but it doesn't mean that, whilst on the clock, i don't think he wouldn't help those he has chosen to help.
  8. Answer that question and then we'll progress the point.
  9. Who is more advantaged - someone from the middle class or someone from a single-parent family on a council estate?
  10. Like a scenario where everyone is given £10... But 'positive action' isn't equality, it's discrimination against a group of people on the grounds of race and sex.
  11. Doesn't mention 'representation', though...
  12. So... why not bring them both back for further testing and questioning?
  13. How do they choose one of them? If it's the toss of a coin then how do you know you're getting the best person for the job?
  14. If they scored equally, yes! OK... two black people score equally - how do they decide who gets the job?
  15. But it depends on the group. Using your analogy of everyone being given the same amount of money: Group A live in an affluent area - they've gotten there because of the amount of money they have. A 'do-gooder' feels that this isn't fair and gives Group B a wedge of cash to make them equally as well-off as you. Suddenly, there's an influx of people to your area because more people can now afford to live there. This means that the shops can now raise prices because of more competition. House prices rise because of the popularity of the area and it means that your child is now no longer able to afford to live/rent in the area.
