|You are not equipped to make use of the advice you're getting. |

I am serious about taking criticism that people offer in this forum and as another poster in this thread has pointed out, there has been some excellent criticism provided by a number of posters. I also appreciate the rather brutal honesty that this place provides. I've completely rewritten stuff on the criticism provided, I'm trying to shift my sentence structure and paragraph lengths towards simplicity and generally implementing the comments I've received from other stories.
Read Aristotle's Poetics. Read some Chekhov stories. Focus on the basic elements of storytelling (esp. plot and character). The stylistic advice you've been getting about sentence structure, etc. is all valid, but you aren't ready to tackle those issues yet (not directly, at least -- developing an ear for good writing takes time, practice, and READING).
And seriously, don't write while you're stoned. Or if you absolutely must, read and revise your work afterwards while sober before you show it to anyone. Smoking weed is fun and can sometimes be helpful, but you're using it as a crutch, and it's only exacerbating your existing problems.
