I know it's a vague question but here's an example:
two or more characters are having a conversation, one says something questionable and the author goes "Bob looked at Ted for a few minutes".
HOW?!? Do they know how long a single minute of staring at someone is? Now i have to picture this guy awkwardly staring at the other for an uncomfortable amount of time...
Even 10 seconds is a lot during a conversation.
I don't know, maybe i'm weird.
PS: well this exploded. If you're a writer new or experienced i suggest you take a dive in the comments, i see a lot of useful tips.
"How many applications did you write this week"? "Around 30". "OMG thats not enough - you have to make Gazillions of applications and flood every firm with so many applications that all other applications get buried under your application to get a job"!
Sadly this sums up the current trend - and it is absolutely wrong and unsustainable. If one sends out 30 applications, one should expect some 5 interviews and one job offer - this was the norm 50 years ago. Nowadays if people send out 30 applications - they get perhaps 1 interview. If they send 100 - they get perhaps 5 interviews and most likely no job offer. Some people send out 200 applications, get perhaps 10 Interviews and still no job offer. This is insane and absolutely not your fault - it is the insane requirements and picky corporations that are at fault.
I can not STAND (in books or movies/TV shows) when characters call their family members stuff like “sis” or “big bro” to their face. It seems like the most absolutely ridiculous way of speaking to a sibling. I call my sister by her first name! Her name is too short to have a nickname but occasionally she calls me by a silly nickname or just my first name.
Ugh, the worst was this book I just read where a character literally said to her sister’s face something like “well of course not, twin sis.”
Like what??? Who talks like that? It’s also not like it was the first time establishing that they are twins. The entire first chapter explained that in plenty of detail.
Remember that the system was made to benefit the market. If you are an American Tax Payer. Capital Gains tax can be something you are worried about. But you also have Capital Loss Dedications. If you are married and filing jointly or Single (like most retail investors are), you can claim 3k deduction. For married but filing separately folks, it's 1.5k. Best part about the system, losses carry over till the amount is fully used as a deduction (15k loss in a year translates to 5 years worth of 3k deductions).
Example. If I lost 15k on my plays before the end of the taxable year (December 31st 2020) and I'm married filing jointly. I can get a 3k deduction from my taxable income or capital gains for my 2020 taxes. This then drops my capital loss down ammount to 12k. Next year for my 2021 taxes, I can use another 3k deduction from the 2020 losses to drop my taxable income. This again drops my capital loss from 2020 to 9k. You can continue to do this till that capital loss amount hits zero.
Key point, no matter how much you gained in a year in trading, it doesn't just make your capital losses just disappear. Even if I gained in 2021, I can still use the 2020 capital losses to offset all taxable income sources. So make sure you claim those losses WSB. You didn't lose trading, you simply made it so your taxable income is offset in the years to follow.
Edit: Just to clarify. It has to a be a total lose at the end of the tax year. This means that after gains and losses. You have to lose money. This can only be calculated on closed out positions. Holding assets if they depreciate in value, doesn't mean it is considered a loss. "It's only a loss if you sell".
Edit 2: Someone brought up Gains. If I lost money one year but gained money the next. My 3k deduction gets applied to the Capital Gains tax first. If I lost 15k in 2019 but made 15k in 2020. My 2020 gains will be taxed as making 12k. Now if I made only 2k in 2020. I don't pay taxes on that 2k and that 1k left over goes to my taxable income. Consecutive year losses doesn't just make it compound either. It just make a different deduction pot later down the road.
Edit 3: Something I forgot to mention but another poster did. Losses on wash sales don't apply. Look up Wash Sales if you don't know what it is.
Edit 4: I attempted to make it clear but failed to do so. The Capital Loss is a deduction, not a credit. This means that it isn't exactly a 1-1 solution. What I was trying to convey is that a Capital Loss... keep reading on reddit ➡

For the last year I have been writing extensive pieces on a variety of cases. Those write ups can be found on my profile. The case I wanted to highlight today is the case of Kelsey Emily Collins who disappeared in 2009.
Last seen on May 9th, 2009. She was born on 04/30/1991. She was 18 when last seen and she would be 29 today.
Height and Weight: 5'5 - 5'7, 155 - 165 pounds
Clothing: A white, black and red Echo athletic jacket, a pink t-shirt, blue jeans and black Jordan sneakers.
Description: Kelsey has light brown hair and green eyes. Collins is of African-American, Caucasian, and Native American descent. Some sources say she is simply biracial- Caucasian and African American. Her hair was chin-length at the time of her disappearance. It's naturally curly, but she normally uses a straightening iron on it. She may dye her hair another color. Collins has a two- to three-inch surgical scar on her lower rib cage, a surgical scar across her lower abdomen which developed into a keloid, and a two-inch scar across her left hand and index finger from a box cutter. Her ears are pierced one time each in the lobes and the right side of her nose is pierced. Collins may go by her middle name, Emily; this was her legal name until she was seven years old.
