This guy is getting his ass roasted openly on Twitter right now. Way worse than what many of you have subjected me towards for the past few years now.
(And yes, I do agree with a few of these rules–particularly #8–when dealing with most writers on Wattpad and other sites. Yeah…they aren’t exactly “the pick of the litter” when it comes to good writing.
Granted, some will improve over time (that’s my hope anyways), but others will just meander on, stop and then start, then stop again, rail at the world about how hard writing is, why they can’t stop going to school so that they can write “full time”, or why they can’t do any kind of effective time management with their day to day needs/requirements along with writing (It’s a not a state secret boys and girls!), or feel like the world “owes” them something because they can write, but write what is the question, and whether or not it’ll pass muster with the rest of the world.)
I love this Twitter user’s comment: “It’s cool to me that Jonathan Franzen , who is indeed the American novelist of his generation (an insult, to be sure) pops up in the news only because he has revealed a new type of stupidity he has mastered.”
