I think at least 10 campers are working on sci-fi/fantasy novels during the summer here, and many of them ask for feedback from me. After a lot of time spent reading about intergalactic colonial wars, sexual abuse between orcs and fairies, and bumbling-yet-valuable sages who dress in silver lycra, it's fun to look at my notepad to see comments like "Clarify what Crystalline Wormhole Engines do" and "Is Terrentiarius a planetary god or just a spaceship commander?" and "It's unclear why the goblins were banished to live in Amsterdam" and "Explain more about how the activated galactic plasma gel converts manure into carbon."

Massachusetts wants Anne to stop moving from scenes in slow motion.
Why can’t people be mature when they run into walls?
Love makes couples tiny.
Funny that lions never yell.
Funnier that hands always try to break other hands.
Liars can’t get answers from the honest places that sting.
