Side Note To Fan Fic Authors

bootsnblossoms:

twobirdsonesong:

Here’s the thing.

I read a lot of scripts.  A lot.  From professionals to aspiring writers to complete newbies.  Features and pilots.  Specs and treatments.

And 8 times out of 10 the fan fic that I’ve read over the last, oh, 15 years is leagues better than this stuff.  It’s more inspired.  It’s more compelling.  It’s genre bending and creative and heartfelt.  It’s well-paced and intense and funny and sexy and meaningful.  It’s smart and thoughtful and good.  It’s novel-quality.  Better than, sometimes.

Rare is the script I don’t want to put down, but how often have we stayed up until 3am to get to the last chapter of a 100k fic? And it’s not even a fan fic author’s day job.  This is what they do on the side.  In their spare time.  For free.

So my point is, fan fic authors, you’re good.  You’re good writers and great storytellers.  I know it doesn’t always feel like it, especially if you’re one of the authors who’s not a BNF and doesn’t get the notes/hits that a few do.  And  because some people still view fic as “not real writing.” You guys know the shit that gets made into movies.  You’re better than that.  So be better than that.  If writing is what you think want to do, then just know you’re already doing it.   You’ve already started.

And you’re more talented than you might think.

To all of my writer friends. This is so fucking true. <3

Writing in my brain: Beautiful flowing sentences full of powerful phrases and enigmatically witty dialogue. 

Writing on the page: They did the thing and said some stuff. There was snark. 

THIS.
ABSOLUTELY THIS

Do authors cry when they kill the best character or do they smile, laugh and have a cup of tea with satan

some authors could really use a “plot twist limit” or a “you’ve killed too many characters already” notification you know

I feel like this targets George R. R. Martin specifically
I remember being traumatized after the Red Wedding.

There are 3 types of writers.

klarolinelannister:

xkanyeinterruptedmex:

1. Writers that unrealistically don’t kill anyone.

2. The right amount of death.

3. LETS JUST FUCKIN KILL THEM ALL BANG BANG BANG

so, in order, stephenie meyer, jk rowling, george rr martin.
