Artistic License

January 25, 2010

Status Update- January 25’th

Filed under: Editing — Joana @ 11:31 pm

I’m tired.  Physically and mentally.  But mostly I’m tired of people on inkpop automatically assuming Cameron’s a girl because they’re too close-minded to see the signs that he’s a gay, teenage male.  I’m tired of people reading half a chapter and going in for the kill with overly harsh critiques that wouldn’t even happen if they paid attention or actually read any of it.  I know I’m not the perfect writer, but if you actually READ you wouldn’t fill a page-long review with how awkward my prose is.

I guess what I’m saying is, I’m not looking for tons of praise, I’m looking for people that will actually READ.  I want people who will read my story.  If you actually read through it, paying attention, then I don’t mind whether your opinion is good or bad.  Artistic License isn’t on a bookstore shelf yet, and to get there, I need help with ALL of it, not just what you can read in the span of one minute.

That is my rant of the day.

  1. it’s hard when there’s such a huge community of young writers who are out to get their own things critiqued & they’re just doing the minimum to get you to look at their stuff. i would hope that more mature, invested writers & critiquers will be able to find each other on inkpop. you just have to wade through all the crap first 🙂

    just so you know, i’m juniwolfspirit on inkpop, i just joined today & you messaged me so that’s how i found this site 🙂

    • Yeah, I guess, but those ones are mostly the ones who will leave one or two sentences amounting to “I LOVE IT!”. Those aren’t nearly as frustrating. Blah.
