They say that when a writer isn’t writing he is reading. Reading other people’s work, or probably his own. Such will be one’s dedication to this craft when he understands that he writes for all, not just the majority.
I love writing. It’s a beautiful art. It’s hard. But beyond reason writing is an ally for dreams and unspoken words. I never judged anyone’s write-up before, even if they have bad grammar and they confuse “you’re” with “your”, even if I don’t fully agree with what they believe.
Writing is a form of freedom and with that comes the responsibility of the writer to write what he feels without the influence of others, without the fear of being judged. Writing is the extension of the writer’s soul and I really think it’s bad when people instead of saying their “opinion” about a writer’s judge it, like they’ve already won a laureate in writing.
I’m writing this because a work of a fellow-writer was judged unjustly. People are saying, “We freakin’ want this to happen not that”, “No, you should do this” blah, blah, blah. If you people don’t like what he’s writing, don’t read it, or better yet write your own version of the freakin story. I can accept rational comments/opinion but an illogical opinion? Please.
I understand that emotions play a vital part in your rage, but please, a little respect. Don’t let your emotions get the best of you. At least give comments that are 50% emotional and 50% rational. Give suggestions not demands.
You fell in-love with the story but in the middle of all the turmoil and tragedy, you flee away paving a nightmare of remorse brought about by your inability to accept a writer’s happy ending. What’s more tragic than that?
