I'm supposed to be critiquing a fellow student's story for workshop tomorrow. But I can't, because a) I hate the word 'critiquing', including the action it inveighs and b) I've recently come to the conclusion that one learns nothing from others picking apart stories they themselves would rather wipe their dimpled asses with. Reflexive nouns abound. Reflexive verbs exist.
I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't? I can't!
Yet I can type "I can't" until it starts to look like "Ishtar". Anyone else?

I'm not a writer.
