OMG, Bella. Your life does not need to revolve around him.
And you guys don’t need to nit-pick at someone’s writing style. For fuck’s sake, if you don’t like the books then don’t read them and shut up about them. Read something else. When people do this, it makes me terrified to write. “What if nit-pick at my writing like that? What if I screw something up? What if it sounds awkward?” I’m terrified. I hate how all these people loathe Stephenie Meyer just because they hate Twilight, the books, movies, and fandom. She did what she wanted to do, is that so bad?
- "If you don’t like it, don’t read it, wah-wah-wah…” — THIS
- Oh, honey… I understand where you’re coming from, but I’m probably one of the last people on the planet who will be influenced by the idea that this kind of criticism paralyzes your ability to write. You’re worried about being a shitty writer? GOOD. You should worry. It shows that you give a fuck. Edit your writing. Try to craft your writing instead of mashing the keyboard. Become motivated to write bullet-proof prose.
POTENTIAL LITERARY CRITICISM DOES NOT MAKE YOU A SHITTY WRITER. YOUR SHITTY WRITING MAKES YOU A SHITTY WRITER. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING A SHITTY WRITER, TRY HARD NOT TO BE A SHITTY WRITER.
