Well, recovery has begun apace. Writing my sword fantasy which I allowed to languish in the hard-drive for ten years. TEN YEARS.

So, a hour or so ago, I received the "feedback" from a (what I thought was) a trusted person. I received an essay-length email on how sword-fighting is supposed to be not. Classic mansplaining at its best. Needless to say, I actually blocked the person's email account - I was that annoyed.

Still writing the sword fantasy, even though it doesn't fit his world view.

Wait a minute... You're a trained fencer.
You're the only person I know (have ever known) who's knowledge of sword fighting didn't come from Hollywood movies. o.O

No wonder you were annoyed. :(

So I guess we can deduce from that, that the producers of the movies he watches pick excellent stunt folks and fight arrangers. :P

I feel like you should have responded with a picture of you with a sword, or a record of your training. XD
