The Official Guide to Cut-Downs and Comebacks: Words Edition

by Billy Barnwell

Have you ever been in a situation where you needed to defend yourself, or others, but just didn’t have the right words to do so? Of course, a few hours later, when you replay the situation in your mind, the perfect response comes to you. “If I had only said that I would’ve been a hero!”

Yes, we’ve all been there, and it’s a helpless feeling because you know that the moment has passed for good. For all intents and purposes, you lost.

In this book, you’ll get a full breakdown of the ways to come right back to those individuals who are attempting to cut you down. You’ll discover clever ways to instantly dominate any situation where another person is trying to insult you or your friends. You’ll quickly become a master of the craft and be able to call upon these comebacks, or come up with your own using this proven formula, at any time. No more regrets, no more shoulda-coulda-wouldas. No more losing. Consider this comeback system as your compass that allows you to navigate the rough terrain we call social class and order.

I wrote this book because you needed support from someone who has been there before. Know that I have a personal stake in this and have tapped back into my own childhood and current everyday life to try and understand both sides of this natural phenomenon. The defenseless need defending. The common person needs armor and weapons when it is their time to attack. You are my inspiration for this.

Here’s how it works: At the top of the page there will be a cut-down, directly below will be a brief insight into the cut-down, and at the bottom, there will be several different comebacks to the cut-down.

The following pages will change your life for the better. The time for lying down is over. The time has come for a shift in power. It’s time for a new hero-story to be written. Is it your time? Will you be that hero? It is yours for the taking if you are ready. Are you ready?

Inducing Reality: The Holy Grail of Storytelling in Video Games

by Ken Ramsley

This Kindle book is an updated, expanded, and thoroughly re-written version of several fragmented online editions that were originally produced to help my fellow game designers build stories into their own video games. Nonetheless, since that time, students of writing began to notice how the book also offers a complete, concise, and thoroughly useful introduction to the basics of fiction-writing in any media. If the topic of fiction-writing is important to you, and if you are looking for a tightly-written soup-to-nuts handbook rather than a rambling 500-page tome, you have come to the right place.

By nature we are all storytelling consumers, yet this does not tell us much about how to write a story. A consumer of stories is much like someone who excels at navigating a busy city – whereas a writer of fiction knows exactly how to design and construct subway systems, bridges, roads, and sidewalks. Even though most people can recognize a great story when they see it, the rules for building a story are far from obvious and few of us are skilled at constructing fiction from scratch.

In this book, I’ve laid out the essential rules of storytelling and how they are applied in well-known examples from movies and television. Based on an understanding of human nature and its rules for storytelling, and with dedicated study and practice, anyone can learn to produce stories that ebb and flow according to the naturally hardwired expectations of our audience.

Me-devil onions

by Dean Moriarty

And then a different bandwidth, not quite a security breach came around the corner of it all as I was writing my prayers on the wall of my indisposition, and recognising me somehow, called out my secret name.

Disappearing down a hole I’d dug for just such an occurrence I left everything I’d built over the years behind me and wondered how they’d found me or if I’d been betrayed.

Well maybe I’d find out and maybe I wouldn’t but I wasn’t sticking around to ask questions.
