UPDATE March 17, 2021: Another death. Waiting for a coffin to be delivered. Funeral the 21st. Unlikely to be streaming for a few weeks.


................



Update: March 27, 2021: It's not even been a week since the funeral, and now there is another death and another funeral.



............



UPDATE April 5, 2021: There are still no streams, as, we've now a another (a 3rd) funeral to prepare for.


And that is now 3 deaths in our family, in the past 2 weeks.


This 3rd death hits hard, because it was Pippi.


Our family has now had 13 deaths since March 2020.








April 10, 2015, 12 children were kidnapped.

May 15, 2015, the heads of 10 of them were nailed to my door.

August 24, 2020, one was found still alive. he was just 4 years old when she was kidnapped, but she remembered us, even though 5 years had passed.

August 25, 2020, Pippi came home, but her condition was not well. She had been tortured the entirety of the 5 years she had been held hostage. She was missing limbs and covered with scars, had broken bones many years not set, and suffered serious damage to many of her internal organs. That she was alive at all, in her condition, was a miracle. Doctors had little hope of her survival and she was sent home with Hospice care.

Pippi had cancer in her eye and needed surgery for it, which she was scheduled to have, shortly before she was kidnapped.

In the years they had her, not only did they torture her, but her cancer went untreated and spread to her brain.

By the time she was returned to us, her cancer had reached an inoperable state, so we knew she did not have much time left.

Had her cancer been treated, back when she was a toddler, she probably would have reach adulthood.

She died only 8 months after her return.

Another child, to cry out from the grave, for Etiole's vengeance upon her murderers. Another victim of evil men, who will stoop to no ends, to bury the crimes they committed 50 years ago.  Drug lords. Opium growers. Heroine dealers. Selling little girls 4 to 8 years old for sex to priests. They only care about money.

All hail the mighty tourist ass. Millions come to Old Orchard Beach every year, for one thing and one thing only: heroine. They sell their drugs to the tourists under the pier and off the balconies of that giant motel. Than drag little girls to the bedrooms of the condominiums on Smithwheel Road, behind the school. And any child who dares open their mouth and beg for help, gets tossed in the GooseFare Brooke Ravine.

Bastard drug lords. They've been doing this for 50 years, and the town hall and the police department, turn a blind eye to it, because they get paid $6million a year to not report it to the newspapers, when the body of another child washes down the ravine, into the gulley to be spit out in the ocean. No fewer than 5 bodies are found every summer, but how often does it get in the news?

The corruption of this fucking town needs to end.

Yet another dead at the hands of these criminals who run our town.

How long will the residents continue to turn a blind eye to what is happening in our town.

How many more children will you let them kill, before you stand up to them?

Another child is dead and no one in this town cares. So long as they get their money from the tourists. The blood of another murdered child screams from the graves, begging for justice. Tick tock, tick tock, so begins, yet another of Etiole's 7 year clocks.

This is why there were no/to few streams from May 2020 until now.

May 2020, after 4 years of not hearing from them at all, the FBI returned with a lead, which led to Pip's discovery a few weeks later in August.

Because of the nature of the situation, I could not talk about it, to tell you why streams had stopped.

The kidnappers, were enraged that we had recovered Pip, and that is when the attacks started up again on my home and family September 2020.

Pip's condition continued to grow worse, and she died April 5, 2021.

She was only 10 years old.

This is what it means, to not be white in America.

White men, won't even give a child the chance to grow up.

This is what white people do, to none white families like mine.

We are Gypsies with Jewish blood, for that alone we are hunted like animals.

What the men of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, did to my family, will never be forgotten or forgiven.




#If you have any information on the kidnappers or the murders...


#FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the of the April 10, 2015 kidnapping of my 12 children by 14 Ku Klux Klan men who invaded our home and the subsequent May 15, 2015 murder of 10 of the 12 whom had their heads nailed to my front door. If you have information about the case, give it to him not me. He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322 


Have you forgot the extent of the damage these people did, all because, they wanted to dig up my land and removed bodies buried there, before my house builders found that barrel of bones?

Have you forgotten that 7 town hall workers, 5 public works men, a blond woman, her bald son, and her red haired sister Kendra, and 14 police officers, all lead by a man they referred to as "Mark who needs no last name" were the ones 

I name every one of them, except for the ring leaders: blond woman, her bald son, her sister Kendra, and her husband "Mark who needs no last name". I don't know who those 4 are. I'd never seen any of them, other than the Kendra woman before, and I only knew her fro her attacks beating me up at Panera in 2009, 2010, and 2013.

I can name every one of the others, because all I have to do is go to the Old Orchard Beach town hall and police department website, and their are their faces.

With the exception of blond woman, her bald son, her sister Kendra, and her husband "Mark who needs no last name", every one else involved was government official who works for the state of Maine vis the Old Orchard Beach Town Hall, the Old Orchard Beach Police Department, or the Old Orchard Beach Public Works.

And what exactly did they do?

August 8, 2013 they drove a backhoe over my house. That same backhoe drove over my previous house on the same land April 2007. That same backhoe drove over my poultry barn and horse stables July 2001. July 2001 was the first attack.

March 2015 was the the massive attack, with an entire fleet of trucks, and drove over the Church of the Holy Rhinstone, a church that stood on my land, my garage which is why I no longer have a garage to put my car in, my 2 sheds both of which had my tractors and other garden/crop machinery in them at the time. And of course the razing of the land, the cutting down of the apple orchard - the VERY apple orchard planted in 1530 that this town was named after... he actual "old orchard" of Old Orchard Beach... the very original trees - huge massive apple trees over 400 years old. The grape vineyards, the cherry trees, the pears trees. 

April 10, 2015, they returned, 4 police officer held me a gun point, while 10 other police officers held my children down with long poles with metal wire strangle loops on the end, and beat their faces in with cinder block bricks, knocking out every one of their teeth, breaking their jaws... POLICE OFFICERS DID THAT... while men they referred to as "Mark who needs no last name" and "Dan" stood there and told the police officers what to do, how to beat them, while "Mark who needs no last name" boldly bragged that he paid the Old Orchard Beach police $6million dollars to do this.

May 15, 2015... the heads, hands, feet, and intestines of my children were nailed to my door. Later that same day police officer W. W. came to my home begging for forgiveness and claimed that men he referred to only as "Mark and Dan" were holding his beloved mother-in-law hostage and torturing her, and he helped in the April 10, 2015 attack, only to save her life and get her back. He claimed he had no prior knowledge of what was going to happen, claiming that he'd been told they were only going to "scare" us. He said he had not expected anyone to get hurt, he had not known my children would be tortured and kidnapped, he had not known they were going to be murdered. He said he was scared for his life and lives of his family. And he said: "They form a small army, our department doesn't have enough man power to stop them, and every one in this town is too scared to fight back. You don't know what's going on. And I think they mixed you up with someone else. They didn't know you were the owner of this land. They didn't know that was your motorhome. They thought someone else owned this place. It wasn't even your family they were after. You were the wrong target. You don't know who these people are. What they've done to our families. This is the actual Mafia. The real deal. I'm so sorry. This is the address they sent us to. But they had a different name as the owner. This wasn't supposed to happen. They were after someone else. I'm so sorry. I couldn't let my family died. And now yours is dead instead. This wasn't supposed to happen."

June 19, 2016... I did a very specific livestream. You see... A., D., B., and T. in the 1970s and 1980s, were in the habit of dragging big black trash bags into the forest, crossing my land to do it, and dumping those bags into the Goosefare Brook Ravine. In 1983, 3 snuck into Etiole's swamp and planted 3 acres of Marijuana. Someone found it and called the police, I don't know who... it was Maine's largest drug raid for decades. Many, many millions in plants where dug up and removed from Etiole's swamp. A few weeks later A, & D,s 10 year old daughter ran into my yard, touched my car on a dare from other children - the 1964 Dodge 330 former Old Orchard Beach police car, known by Stephen King fans as the REAL Christine, The World's Most Haunted Car... than jumped her bike, and sped down the road, as fast as she could, head on into a car coming the other way. She died instantly, he brain shattered all over the end of my driveway, and her mother A responded by the Battle of 458 - the biggest mass shooting ever in Maine history, that ended up with 3 Gypsy clans and 2 police departments, in a shoot out between 70+ adults all armed with guns. One of my cousins, an 8 year old boy, standing 3 feet from me, had his eye shot out by one of the bullets. While A ran around the street screaming: "FOUR! FIVE! EIGHT!" than shot another child. 

"FOUR! FIVE! EIGHT!" than shoot another child. 

"FOUR! FIVE! EIGHT!" than shoot another child. 

THOSE are the 31 children, whose bones were sawed up and tossed into the GooseFare Brook Ravine... yes, that DOES mean, police officers KNEW those children were there and covered it up.  And I witnessed that entire event.

And THAT is WHY... when police officers murdered my family in 2015, I did a livestream, walking to the ravine, to show the world, where those bones were... because I'm sick and tired of the police corruption in this fucking town, and those sawed up bones of 31 children are PROOF of what this town government is like.... as are the heads of my children that were nailed to my door.

At the end of The Battle of 4-5-8... A. took 2 gas cans and poured them all over the big dome house, than set a match to it, and no one knew, why when she did her brother B., started running, jumped in his robin egg blue truck and backed down the driveway, hit Portland Ave doing 70 and didn't stop driving until the high speed chase caught him in CT... oh but we knew before he was out of sight, why he started running... the dome house went up like Hiroshima into a mushroom cloud that could be seen across the entire state... turns out there was a Meth lab in that house.

June 19, 2016... the livestream of the bones went viral, it's what made my YouTube channel suddenly explode overnight... and police officer W.W. upset, by the fact that, the livestream included the entire police call and response, and that response was to laugh and do nothing... fed up with the corruption in his department, he forwarded that livestream VOD to the FBI, and the FBI arrived in Old Orchard Beach, to dig up the Reclaim Blueberry Plains, and all hell broke lose in this town, as most of the police officers suddenly found themselves arrested. An entire new police force from out of state was brought in to replace the long time officers who had proven they could be trusted to uphold the law. Many town hall officials and public works employees also found themselves arrested by the FBI.

June 26, 2016... barely a week later... the blond woman and the red haired Kendra woman showed up at my workplace, Scarborough WalMart, and tried to kill me, yet again... these are the same 2 woman who attacked me with golf clubs at Southern Maine Community College November 14, 2013... they left dead in 2013, I was paralized for 5 months. It took me 18 months to relearn to walk. I was out of the wheel chair, and I was without a walker, I was without a cane. I had almost fully covered from their November 14, 2013 attack with golf clubs... June 26, 2016, this time they attacked with shopping carts, and I'm now crippled for the rest of my life. They shattered 3 vertebra this time and it can't be operated on. I had to relearn to walk a second time, and I'm not yet recovered now in 2021. In 2013 they drove away in the 4 door white pickup truck. In 2016 they drove away in a gold Volvo SUV station wagon.

That blond woman and her red haired Kendra sister, they are wanted by the FBI for attempted murder of me and they are also wanted in questioning for being suspected of also being the murderers of my children.

I don't know who these 2 women are.

The blond woman shows up my driveway frequently, screaming and yelling, sometime accompanied by a small child, about 5 years old, that she pulls behind her in a red radio flyer wagon. She looks to be about 60 or 70. She often wears a denim button down shirt and jeans. She's prone to yelling at passing cars, while pointing up my driveway, and saying: "There's EelKat, she tried to kill my husband."

I've never tried to kill anyone, so accusation is baffling at best.

She seems to think I know who she is, and has made the claim, that "I was that brat in school"... the red haired Kendra woman, sometimes with her, claims to be her sister, also appears to be 60 to 70 and also seems to think I know who she is, and frequently says: "You bullied me in school, but no more, I'm Kendra SilverMander it's my turn to shine."

They BOTH make the claim they went to school with me, and yet, I never went to school, a well documented fact... because I'm the child the FBI rescued what the news media called "Maine's House of Horrors". I was locked in a cage when I was 8 years old. I was let out on Sundays, to go to church, and not allowed to speak or make eye contact with anyone, and this was only done infrequently, whenever church goers asked what happened to that girl you had". I was 31 years old when the FBI arrived, because of Heaven's Gate having killed 39 people, and my uncle being one of the members and self proclaiming himself as the leader of Heaven's Gate after Applewhite's death. The FBI was investigating the murder of 39 people in California, and had no idea they'd find children in cages in Maine as a result.

So you see, when the blond woman and her Kendra sister, make the claim they went to school with me and I was the class bully who beat them up, this is easily proven false, because the time period when I should have been in school, I was locked in a cage, being tortured by my sadistic uncle Bruce.

Also, they are in their late 60s to mid 70s... making them older than my parents, so how could I have been in school with them, even if I had gone to school? At best I would have been starting pre-school the year they would have been graduating high school.

These things they say about school, only further agrees with what police officer W. W. said May 15, 2015, when he made the claim, they had gotten me mixed up with someone else.

July 2016, a month after the shopping cart attack... yet another Old Orchard Beach police officer arrived, this one accompanied by 2 Biddeford officers, who had been former OOB officers... these 3 officers, had a vastly eye opening story to tell me.

They had been called to Old Orchard Beach, to my farm, to arrest me, a call made to them, by a man named Mark, whom one of these officers, claimed was his brother in law. This Biddeford officer, said he requested to transfer ot of Old Orchard Beach department years ago, because his sister (whom he claimed he suspected, but could not prove was the blond woman whom had attacked me at WalMart) was quote "trying to control the town" he said "treats Old Orchard Beach like a dynasty, thinks she's a duchess, has severe mental disorders, and thought she could buy the police department". He went on to say, she got in with the real Mafia years ago and went to her head, and now she thinks she IS the Mafia and most of Old Orchard Beach's business owners, especially the motel owners are scared shitless of her, because they believe her claim to be Mafia. He went on to say, she's not Mafia, but she's good at convincing people she is and stated "I wouldn't murder beyond her. She'd do it just to prove she is Mafia." He said he transferred out of OOB department to Biddeford department because he was fed up with how easy it was for her to get every officer to do anything she asked. He said "the corruption in that department runs deep; don't cross her or any officer she controls; they WILL kill you and every around you. You don't know who her husband is. He doesn't just control that town, he controls half the state."

What he was telling me was bizarre on extremes, but even more bizarre was the live feed radio call, that he had me listen too, as it was happening, on my farm in Old Orchard, while I was at my dad's house in Biddeford.

He said: "The Old Orchard Department called me, asked me to come over here. Buddy Will wanted to prove you were not in Old Orchard and that Mark has you mixed up with someone else. That fucking bastard is crying wolf and trying to frame you, we can prove it right now. We are fucking fed up WolfBoy."

He turned on his radio, so I could hear. A what I heard... a man whose voice I do not recognize, yelling at a Officer W.W. and saying: 

"That is Wendy, arrest her now! That is EelKat. She tried to kill me."

While officer W.W. and another officer, told the man: "his isn't Wendy. We have officers with her right now. Who tried to kill you? Wendy? Or THIS woman right here?"

"This woman right here! This is EelKat I tell you! Arrest her! What do you think I pay you for! You aren't allow to defy me! I own this town! You are my slaves. I command you to arrest her!"

W.W.: "This isn't EelKat. This isn't Wendy. I've known her for years. And right now, she's on the other side of the state. With 3 officers, listening to you right now. You are NOT the law. We've had it with you. You don't own me. And you've mixed her up with someone else. You've been harassing the wrong damned person. You dare call us about Wendy ever again, and I will personally arrest you for false reports, than I'll tell them everything. You'll never see the outside a prison for the rest of your life when I get done with you. You fucking leave this woman alone. You destroyed her life, because you couldn't tell her apart from someone else."

I used to aqua jog, mountain climb, horseback riding, and I hiked 13 miles a day. And in the blink of an eye, that lifestyle was taken away, and every day was struggle, just to sit up and breath, with no hope of ever walking again. I defied doctors. It's been 8 years and I can move around the house by holding on to things and I now can walk again, at the moment only short distances outside with a cane, and the hope is to continue to improve. I still have a long road of recovery ahead. But I'm walking again, something that 8 years ago, doctors said would never happen. 

My farm was razed.

My family was murdered.

I was 5 months paralysed, and had to relearn to walk. It was 8 years ago and I'm not yet fully recovered due to 3 inoperable vertebrae and hip dysplasia. November 14, 2013, 10PM, at WalMart, while putting bags of groceries in the back seat of my car, I was attacked by 3 rapists armed with metal golf clubs, who left me parallelized, in a wheel chair, broken spine, broken hip, broken pelvis, broken knees, serve nerve damage to my left side limiting the use of my left hand, my bladder incontinent from nerve damage, they left me for dead, and I had doctors telling me I would never walk again.

There's more that has happened. A lot more. The thousands of gallons of sewage they pumped into my motorhome in 2015. The cats. the Ptarmagin cats. World famous groups of cats. You remember them. If so, you remember what these people did to those cats. Poisoned. All dead the same day. 12 cats. Dead to what the vet described as: "enough poison to kill a great dane". My horse, she had her head beat in with a rock. My bantam roosters... 70 pet roosters, hung by their necks in rope nooses in my rose bushes.

All because this man, this mystery Mark, whose last name seems to be known to the police but is still unknown to me and man whom I've never seen or met - he keeps his face covered whenever he shows up... mistook me for someone else... and police officers and town hall workers and public work employees.

Welcome to Old Orchard Beach... this is NOT the way life should be, you know it.

What these people did to me, should never have happened, and according to the police, it's been happening for 50+ years to hundreds of people, hundreds of families, in this town, and every one is too scare to talk about it or fight back to stop it. That NEEDS to change.

The corruption in our town, needs to stop... but it won't end, until every last person who is being harassed by these people stand up, put their foot down, and say enough is enough, we ain't gonna take this any more.

We the people of Old Orchard Beach need to take back our town.

Using caps lock to signify a character shouting in a story, Yes or No?


Using caps lock to signify a character shouting in a story, Yes or No? from writing

>>I don't really know where I should stand, do you think writing in all caps is a good idea or not?

I don't use all caps for full sentences.

The only time I use all caps is when a character is frustrated and annoyed and yells out a single word, in this case used to show their frustration.

For example:

"No," he said yet again.

"Why?"

"Because I said so."

"That's not a reason."

"Yes it is."

"Tell me why?"

"I don't want to talk about it."

"Why?"

"I said no."

"Why?"

"Will you leave me alone?"

"Just tell me."

"No."

"Tell me."

"No."

"Tell me."

"No, damn it, leave me alone."

"Tell me."

"NO!"

The word no is short and in all caps is not difficult to read. But a long word or a phrase or a sentence, is difficult to read in all caps. I know as a reader, I always get annoyed when I see an long line of all caps ad, I can't see well. So I end up skipping those lines ad guess what they were, because my eyes don't focus well enough to see them.

Because of this in my own writing, I only ever use all caps for words like "No" or "Yes", very small words, and used in the manner like what was shown in the example above.

As for your specific example, I strongly suggest you get a 5th grade grammar book and keep it on hand. This is very, basic elementary grammar rules that are taught in 5th grade.

Let's start with correcting the following sentence...

"Sarah! Where are you?!", he shouted.

Basic grammar rule: NEVER use more than 2 punctuations in a row. (Caps here are used to highlight important words. This is the correct grammar usage of an all cap word. It would also have been correct to bold it instead. Please note that is correct, proper grammar, all caps DOES NOT mean shouting, but rather means "to emphasize importance". Any one who ever took high school grammar is going to know this and is going to be annoyed at any author who doesn't know grammar well enough to know that all caps DOES NOT mean a character is shouting. Worse, wait till you get hate emails from a reader who has a college degree in English... like I do and can quote the grammar rules off the top of their head.)

NEVER use more than 2 punctuations in a row.

?!", is 4 punctuations in a row.

The correct grammar is this:

"Sarah! Where are you," he shouted.

In this context he is calling someone. An exclamation after her name is the correct grammar. Exclamation points are self titled to explain their meaning: "Sarah!" is the shortened form of: "Sarah," he exclaimed.

You only use an exclamation point at a place where you would said 'he exclaimed'.

Exclamation points are like contractions. (can not = can't) They are used to shorten. An exclamation ends a sentence. Like a period, a new sentence must be started after using an exclamation. Same goes for a question mark.

  • This is correct: "Sarah!"
  • This is also correct: "Sarah," he shouted.
  • This is also correct: "Sarah!" He shouted.


  • This is incorrect: "Sarah!" he shouted.


  • This is incorrect: "Sarah! Where are you?!", he shouted.
  • This is also incorrect: "Sarah! Where are you?" he shouted.
  • This is also incorrect: "Sarah! Where are you!" he shouted.


  • This is correct: "Sarah! Where are you?" He shouted.
  • This is also correct: "Sarah! Where are you!" He shouted.
  • This is also correct: "Sarah! Where are you," he shouted.

The reader will know he is shouting by the exclamation point and the tags can be removed, thus:

  • This is correct: "Sarah! Where are you?"

By changing the exclamation point you change the character's tone of voice.

For example:

  1. "Sarah, where are you?"
  2. "Sarah. Where are you?"
  3. "Sarah? Where are you?"
  4. "Sarah! Where are you?"
  5. "Sarah! Where are you!"
  6. "SARAH! WHERE ARE YOU!"
  1. The first one with the coma, is said quietly, calmly, as one looking for a child playing hide n seek.
  2. The second one with the period, is said more curtly, they are losing their temper, but trying to control it. She's been hiding too long and he's getting annoyed.
  3. The 3rd with the question mark is starting to worry. It's now louder. He's wondering if she's left the room. The fact that it's now a question means there is panic rising in his voice.
  4. The 4th with the exclamation, is him now panicking. He can not find her and she's not answering so he's yelling her name.
  5. The 5th with an exclamation after both sentence is him becoming frantic. Panic getting worse.
  6. The 6th with the exclamation and caps, is him in full on panic, now screaming hysterically. He can't find her anywhere and is now terrified she is hurt. He's running around looking for her and now about to call the police.

This is the correct textbook grammar for use of exclamations.

Hope that helps.



EDITED TO ADD THIS SECTION:

When I started writing my answer, you had not yet replied to the 56 other responses.

You have now replied to them, and in reading your responces, I must say I'm rather apauled at your level of trolling.

Sadly, you are quite clearly a troll, seeking only to attack people who tried to help you. Your viciousness in lashing out at them (one of whom I know or a fact is a literary agent who scouts reddit for new talent, and at least 3 of the others are rather big names authors who actually do know what they are talking about, and you are coming off as a childish, cry baby, no good trash, peice of shit who just wants to start a fight

Your writing just in what you have said here, is childish at best, bordering on gibberish. It is painfully obvious that either English is not your first language, you flunked out of grade school and was expelled long before high school, or you are about 8 years old and have not yet been taught, basic, simple, 3rd grade grammar.

I'm sorry, but a primary school English teacher would have a heart attack just trying to get to the end of your question, and I don't even want to begin to try the count the grammar errors in your post. I can see more then a dozen. And they are very basic mistakes. 

VERY basic. 

They are mistakes a 10 year old with a D grade average wouldn't even make.

I'm sorry if the truth seems harsh, but you really are in need of taking very basic Grammar classes. To be an author, you need to know grammar. You'll never get published if you don't.

Something to consider: You may have the talent to come up with a great story and wonderful characters, but if you can't convert them in legible English, it won't matter how good of a story you can tell, because it'll never see the light of day, because no publisher is going to take the time to edit it for you.

You are making a fool of yourself in this argument, and I am not going to reply to you on the forum directly as you have made it very clear you are not seeking an answer and are only looking to start a fight. You already have 7 authors pssed off and fighting with you right now.

As I refuse to feed trolls, I will answer no more of your posts here on reddit.

I will instead answer the rest of your hysterial ravings over on my website, in the article I am now going to write about this situation.

Thank you and have good day.




Using caps lock to signify a character shouting in a story, Yes or No? (self.writing)

submitted 23 hours ago by tae_ka_pre

I recently saw an argument someone gave me when it comes to shouting dialogue a character can say.

For example:

"SARAH! WHERE ARE YOU?!"

"Sarah! Where are you?!", he shouted.

In these two cases, the first one may sound right. Since once you read it, you automatically shout it out.

The second one, the reader will only know that the person shouted once he reads the tags, this will lead to the reader possibly reading it again to convey the character's emotions when he said that line.

The thing is though, although the first one is quite fine, it's not widely accepted.

I don't really know where I should stand, do you think writing in all caps is a good idea or not?

Seriously though, shouting is rare. Obviously, we'd use it sparingly. It wouldn't be used Everytime a character coughs.

What about this:

"Hey!"

"HEY!"

The first one seems like the character just slightly raised his voice as to call out another character.

The second one seems as if the character is angry and shouted at another character.

Ever watch that disappointing metal scream in YouTube? It sorts of feels like that.

Ben was enraged. His hands were trembling of anger. Everything he worked so hard for was just crushed in a matter of seconds. It felt as if he wanted to break every single thing present in that room.

Suddenly, he stood up and decided to call for his butler.

"Tom! Come here!", he shouted.

It feels as if he didn't even shout. When I don't put it all in all caps

I think it's infrequent because characters rarely shout.

This is a weird analogy since everyone's saying don't use it too much when characters almost never shout at all. You can go through ten chapters and a character only shout once.

I read some books and it really just takes me out of the experience. It's like when I read something like:

"YOU KILLED MY FATHER!"

but instead it goes like:

"You killed my father!"

Of course only a few authors use it and it's not used frequently, that's because shouting isn't always used.

If you read some books, movies, stuff like that, there are some cases where the characters never shout, of course it'll be infrequent.

It feels as if the character builds up in rage but instead of shouting with anger, he just went and said it normally. You then see the tag that says ', he shouted' and that's when you realized 'oh, he shouted?', you then go back to the sentence and try to convey it how the author wanted it to happen.

"Hey!"

"Hey!"

The character shouted in one of these sentences. Guess which one

The only time time a period follows after hey is when a character is in a gloomy mood.

"Hey."

When you call on someone you say:

"Hey!"

It's just, for example, look at this:

"Hey!"

It would seem as if a certain character just called out someone.

...but if you made it all caps:

"HEY!"

It would seem as if he shouted at the character. It looks like he's angry at the character and calling him out.

I feel different. Whenever you see all caps sentences, I sometimes forget that the writer made it all caps, and instead just shouted at me.

Ever had an argument with a friend or a loved one in chat or something?

They suddenly speak to you in all caps, but you don't think 'oh they're using all caps to signify they're shouting', you think 'oh, they're mad'.


With your entire conversation now here, let's get to answering each part.


Seriously though, shouting is rare. Obviously, we'd use it sparingly. It wouldn't be used Everytime a character coughs.



I'm sorry, but what world do you live in where shouting is rare?

If your characters do not bicker and argue and fight over the course of your novel, I would say your story is something I personally would find rather dull and bland.

Any one familiar with my own books, knows my characters fight... A LOT.

The 3 main characters are in constant petty battles with each other over everything and nothing. Their fights are worse when the three of them band together and fight with someone else.

Quaraun, obviously is the main character. He is a complicated and difficult person to get along with. Few people can tolerate being around him for very long, due to his whiny, bitchy, sharp-tongued, hissy fits, his constant complaining about everything, and his assumption that everyone exists solely to serve his every whim.

Unicorn and GhoulSpawn, likewise are each as difficult to get along with in their own ways. All 3 of them are generally looked down upon by society, not well liked, usually excluded from social gatherings, and generally get along with other because each of them is a hard headed egomaniac that gets off on the challenge of pushing each other around. The 3 of them are each well aware of the fact that they are annoying as hell, but none of them is willing to change, and each of them is willing to accepting each of the other 2 with all of their flaws.

All 3 of them are hot headed, each has strong personalities, each has strong (and often fanatical) belief systems, and each are often in stark disagreement with the others. They often break out into fist fights. Quaraun is daily bitch-slapping Unicorn only to end up on the ground with a bloody nose after Unicorn punches him.

They are often in taverns drinking and once drunk, lunge at each other's' throats. They near daily start barroom brawls. Their fighting goes far beyond just yelling at each other, with their fights often getting bloody. Multiple occasions Quaraun has pulled a knife on Unicorn and stabbed him. Several times both Quaraun and GhoulSpawn have suffered broken bones from being beaten by Unicorn. 

Unicorn is a predatory monster, who eats Elves, and when angry enough, will bite Quaraun, pinning the Elf to the ground, then drinking the blood from his wound until the Elf passes out from blood loss.

Their 3 way relationship is brutal and violent. They do hurt each other. And yet, each one loves the other two. When they are not fighting, they are prone to cuddling and coddling each other. When one is sick, injured, or hurt, the other two are quick to care for him and hover over him like a mother hen. While they fight with each other, they will quickly band together and gang up on any one who tries to harm one of them. They are fiercely protective of each other.

This means that there is a LOT of shouting, yelling, screaming, and over all being very loud going on.

And yet, that example I showed you above, that came right out of what of the Quaraun books. It's an argument between Quaraun and Unicorn, and you can see how often exclamation points and caps showed up.

Here it is again, with name tags added.

"No," he (Quaraun) said yet again.

"Why?" (Unicorn asked.)

"Because I said so."

"That's not a reason."

"Yes it is."

"Tell me why?"

"I don't want to talk about it."

"Why?"

"I said no."

"Why?"

"Will you leave me alone?"

"Just tell me."

"No."

"Tell me."

"No."

"Tell me."

"No, damn it, leave me alone."

"Tell me."

"NO!"

~From "The Journey Begins" (Volume 4 of The Quaraun Series)

Punctuation is there for a specific purpose. Each coma, period, question mark, and exclaimation adds meaning to your story. When carefully placed, by obeying the rules of grammar, your reader knows exactly how your character is feeling and at what level their voice is.

Punctuation is that specific.

When someone, like yourself, has no clure what the grammar rules are or the meanings behind those rules, they do exactly what you are doing and throw punctuation in all over the place with no rhyme nor reason.

Because they don't know what each punctuation point means or sounds like, they have no clue where to put them.

When called out of their errors, they can choose to do 1 of 3 things:

  1. Learn the rules and correct their mistake.
  2. Ignore the rules and pretend they were not informed of the error.
  3. Act like a spoilt brat and throw a temper tantrum on a forum running around screaming and yelling at every one while making a complete and total jackass of themselves and proving they are an illiterate idiot.

Guess which one you are doing?

56 different people, all of them published authos, have responded to your question, all of them sying the same thing, and look at you. Look at how you are reacting.

You do realize that being an author is a profesion business career, where you are expected to act like a profesional business person when dealing with other profesionals in your profesion, right?

You're NOT acting very professional right now. In fact, you are acting like a 2 year old holding their breath to get their way.

I'm sorry, but you can kick and scream all you want, it isn't going to change the fact that grammar has rules and they aren't going to change just to kiss your royal silver spoon ass.


What about this:

"Hey!"

"HEY!"

The first one seems like the character just slightly raised his voice as to call out another character.

The second one seems as if the character is angry and shouted at another character.



Once again, I will repeat myself... in correct, proper grammar, all caps DOES NOT mean shouting, but rather means "to emphasize importance".

Any one who ever took high school grammar is going to know this and is going to be annoyed at any author who doesn't know grammar well enough to know that all caps DOES NOT mean a character is shouting.

The fact that you think all caps = shouting, shows point blank that you are completely clueless about basic grammar rules and are someone who does read, anything.

The grammar rules apply to ALL writing.

If you believe that caps=shouting then you are seriously lacking in basic education and either didn't go to school at all or were a really shitty student who didn't pay attention in class, skipped classes, and overall had your head stuffed too far up your ass to learn anything.

I'm sorry, but I have very little patience for someone who displays the level of willful, defiance based ignorance that you are displaying right now. It's one thing to be mistaken about something and not know the answer, but it's another thing entirely, to be given the same answer by 56 different people and then, you go off in a hissy fit and screaming and yelling at them because they aren't bowing down and worshiping your ass.

You came to authors asking for clarification on a basic grammar rule that you admitted you did not understand, and were given 56 different examples of the correct grammar rule, and now you are running around in a total bitch feast melt down because oh, boo-hoo-hoo, every body is picking on you... GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS! No one is picking on you. That's all in your head. I don't what your problem is, but get off the internet and go deal with it. Obviously you only came here looking to start a fight, and you've done a good job of that. You never see fights break out on this subreddit. It's one of the most peaceful places on the whole internet. And look at you, working yourself up into a frenzy, bitch challenging everyone. Being a whiny little brat.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself, the way you are acting. Go take an ice bath and calm down.


What about this:

"Hey!"

"HEY!"

The first one seems like the character just slightly raised his voice as to call out another character.

The second one seems as if the character is angry and shouted at another character.



No. The first on his him shouting loudly, and we know that because of the exclamation point.

The second one is him having a total meltdown, running around like a hysterical, crazed raving lunatic, shrieking to the point that he's about to pass out. 

The second one is not anger, it's a mental patient raving lunacy and about to be straight jacketed and carried away.


Ever watch that disappointing metal scream in YouTube? It sorts of feels like that.



I'm sorry, but what the hell?

What?

No clue what in the heck you are talking about.

Earth to crazy person, hello, please rejoin the conversation.

Are you even listening to yourself? You're not making any sense at all. You are throwing out these random meaningless nothings, expecting us to have any clue what you are talking about.

No.

I have no clue what it is. I've never seen it. Maybe you should go back and try actually completing a thought. You are so worked up that you are not even typing full passages of conversation any more and are just tossing these wierd random, meaningless nothings at everyone now.

No one here knows what you are talking about, because you are thinking 90% of your conversation in your head and only typing out the last couple of lines.

Can any one say schizophrenia?

I know schizophrenia well. I grew up with adults who had it, and were very unmedicated when they seriously needed to be, and you Honey, now that you are angry and flipping out on a forum, your schizophrenia is showing big time. 

Please go see a psychiatrist and get some medication for it. You very much need it and it's becoming more and more obvious with each new post you make.


Ben was enraged. His hands were trembling of anger. Everything he worked so hard for was just crushed in a matter of seconds. It felt as if he wanted to break every single thing present in that room.

Suddenly, he stood up and decided to call for his butler.

"Tom! Come here!", he shouted.



Uhm... so now what are you talking about?

Who is Ben?

Who is Tom?

What butler?

No on on this thread has mentioned a Ben, Tom, or butler, and you not replying to any one specifically and just tossing these comments out all willy nilly, no one here knows who you are responding to and what the heck you are talking about.

Can you at least TRY to put a full complete thought into one of your comments before commenting?

And since you've tossed this one in, I'll correct this one too.

This is incorrect: "Tom! Come here!", he shouted.

This is what it should be: "Tom! Come here!" He shouted.

Or else it could correctly also be this: "Tom! Come here," he shouted.

You learn commas in 2nd grade, by the way. You are posting dozens of wild gibberish posts, tossing commas in all willy nilly. You've not used a single comma correctly yet. Normally I don't bother correcting a person's grammar, but you are running around bragging your perfect grammar and, I'm but, your grammar isn't anything even close to correct, let alone perfect.


It feels as if he didn't even shout. When I don't put it all in all caps



Who?

What are you talking about?

Who are you replying to.

No one knows, what you are talking about or who you are replying to. Have you never used a forum before? Do you not know how to reply to people?

Do you even know how to convey a full, complete thought?

Your posts are so mixed up and disjointed. You are just throwing random, unconnected sentances out here and there. Clearly, you've got a conversation with yourself going on in your head and you are replying to that and not replying to anyone here on the forum.

We can't help you like this. No one can.

Calm the fuck down, you are having a freaking melt down over nothing. What the hell is wrong with you? Are freaking drunk or something? Damn, Honey, you're messed up big time.

If you want anyone to reply to these comments, put some context in here so we know what in the heck you are talking about.


I think it's infrequent because characters rarely shout.

This is a weird analogy since everyone's saying don't use it too much when characters almost never shout at all. You can go through ten chapters and a character only shout once.

I read some books and it really just takes me out of the experience. It's like when I read something like:

"YOU KILLED MY FATHER!"

but instead it goes like:

"You killed my father!"

Of course only a few authors use it and it's not used frequently, that's because shouting isn't always used.

If you read some books, movies, stuff like that, there are some cases where the characters never shout, of course it'll be infrequent.

You then see the tag that says ', he shouted' and that's when you realized 'oh, he shouted?', you then go back to the sentence and try to convey it how the author wanted it to happen.



What's infrequent? All caps?

And again, as I already asked... what planet do you live on where no one shouts?

As for authors using caps infrequently... that's because most authors actually know grammar and how to use it and use it correctly. Unlike yourself, they know how to take their head out of their ass and actually find out what the rules are and use them, correctly and properly.

And... how often do you REALLY read movies.

Again, you are coming off like a drug peice of shit right now.

You never went to school, you don't know grammar, we get it. Are you really sure you want to continue this little multi-post feast rant of yours? You're just making a fool of yourself you know.


"Hey!"

"Hey!"

The character shouted in one of these sentences. Guess which one



Both of those sentences are shouting, you're just too ignorant to know that.

And... again, you are just tossing random rant posts out into thin air. Where you intending to be replying to somebody here? Was there another side to this conversation. Who exactly are you fighting with? Are you aware the people in your head aren't real?

You are becoming more childish with each new post.

I think you need a time out.


The only time time a period follows after hey is when a character is in a gloomy mood.

"Hey."

When you call on someone you say:

"Hey!"



And... is this supposed to be a continuation of that last post? Where you trying to convey a full thought and almost succeeded but posted each one 5 minutes apart?

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to reply to you when you post like this?

"Hey," he said.

"Hey," she replied.

Neither is gloomy.

Remove the tags and you get:

"Hey."

"Hey."

Again, neither is gloomy.

How do you see gloom here?

This is just basic standard, proper English. Where's the gloom of which you speak?


It's just, for example, look at this:

"Hey!"

It would seem as if a certain character just called out someone.

...but if you made it all caps:

"HEY!"

It would seem as if he shouted at the character. It looks like he's angry at the character and calling him out.



You're just gonna keep posting like this all night, aren't you.

What are you doing... do you leave, have a donut, then come back 10 minutes later to finish typing your thought in a new post?

You are so manic. You know that.

You must be a nightmare to live with. But moving past your inability to post a full thought in a single post and excessive need to post bits and pieces of thoughts, in a random mish mash of dozens of posts every 5 minutes...and let's try to answer what you are actually attempting to say.

I'm am so baffled as to what kind of parinoia you got going on in your head, that yo are so, completly convinced that all caps = shouting, anger, and calling someone out.

All caps does NOT mean anger and as I've already pointed out, any half-brained idiot who got anything above a D in high school, knows that. 

Basic grammar.

We are talking basic, simple grammar.

How do you not know basic, simple grammar on these levels of absolute ignorance?

In writing, you capitalize a word to EMPHASIZE it's importance.

This is why you often see a character's name in all caps the first time they appear in the story. It denotes that the character is important, and is not just some minor character. It alerts the reader to pay attention to this particular character because he is important to the story.

It's why in murder mysteries, a clue is always put in caps.

For example:

  • He looked around the room and saw a RED SCARF laying crumpled on the floor.

The narrator is not shouting "RED SCARF" at the reader. The reader knows when she sees a word in all caps that that word is important to the story. It is for this reason all caps are used infrequently.

How did you get through school and not learn these very basic grammar rules?


I feel different. Whenever you see all caps sentences, I sometimes forget that the writer made it all caps, and instead just shouted at me.

Ever had an argument with a friend or a loved one in chat or something?

They suddenly speak to you in all caps, but you don't think 'oh they're using all caps to signify they're shouting', you think 'oh, they're mad'.



Again... your schizophrenia is showing.

If you think an author is shouting at you, you have a serious mental issue that needs checking out. Please go to a psychiatrist as in likely treatable with medication.

I have better things to do, then spend all night waiting for your next post every 5 minutes... you know like writing a novel, because I'm an author and that's what I do.

So, I'm not checking back after this to see what else your insanity has to say.

Please, do everyone a favour, and go see a psyciatrist first think in the morning. You've got some serious parinoa issues here, that go far beyoung your inability to grasp basic grammar rules.

Authors, characters, people on the internet... none of them are shouting at you. That is not what all caps means. Get help. You need it very badly.
