These people really don't get it, do they? The point is that Jacqui writes really well which makes it so entertaining and has kept many people reading on - someone who writes well can describe a snail's journey across the lawn as rivetting. It is how the story is told.

I'd look at the posts and think "Whoa, that's alot to read", but I'd start and couldn't stop. I was laughing out loud at some of it. And to think she just tapped it all out in internet cafes - that sort of well written story would have taken me ages to think about and compose!

It was the story that kept me reading (and I don't even know her personally); the subject matter was secondary. And "If we all wrote about the trips we did, or comps we failed in, in a blow by blow fashion" in the same style as Jacqui has, I would read and enjoy them and not get any work done.

The criticisers are certainly entitled to their opinions, but perhaps you could also offer some musings as eloquent as Jacqui's, and then maybe others will be more inclined to read it and give a rats.
