On...holy fucking shit, the "Fight Club" guy just said I didn't suck
“Nice. See how good a writer you are?”
I may have peaked.

big congratulations, and big respect to you for subjecting your work to public line-edits from *anybody*, let alone somebody of Chuck P's stature. i'd need enough ketamine to kill a warthog in order to get through that.
Ah, brilliant! You can see some of the spots where Chuck P. is missing or misunderstanding context for the story at large, and I think he might have overapplied his own rules for artistic flair and imposed them upon a narrative/style that simply isn't his own--but that's the kind of risk you always run when looking to another writer for feedback. He's got some great advice in here as well, and (correctly!) he likes what he sees :)
