  1. Strong words coming from a horrible and green writer, but better than trying
    to write like someone that I am not.
    I don't write to pander to anyone. My grammar sucks, and dialogue is imperfect.
    All the things that make a bad writer. My style is mine, and not trying to be anyone
    So tell me my writing sucks, at least it is mine.

    I write with a passion driven by the desire to write, not to be the next big commercial
    success. Not going to emulate what is trendy or popular, because that is not what
    interests me or captures my imagination. So to the pompous and the waspy crowd
    that looks down on people like me, I don't care. I know I will not be the next Rowling,
    King, or any other literary giant of popularity and status. And neither will you.
    So don't compare me to others, as I am not them or trying to be them. Some may
    want to be them, but that is their prerogative. I walk my own path, and it is not
    the main road that others traverse. So turn up your snobbery to my raw rough-cut
    style and storytelling.

    At least it is not the same thing as the one next to it on the shelf.

  2. Well I figured since I am kinda stuck on my own WIP currently, and that
    my sister was so kind to send me a 50$ gift card to Amazon. That I could
    get in some reading, something that I haven't done enough of the past six
    months. Might possibly find something out there like mine, that is sitting
    on the digital shelf collecting dust waiting for some love. :)

    And to make this adventure more fun, I will be looking for your (fellow forumites)
    books. Sounds scarier than it is (that and I have already read one of the worst stories
    that I think made Bet Me look like a masterpiece in comparison), so I think I have
    my harsh critique out of the way. Though I am the hardest on my own work, that one
    was definitely winning the WTF and this is Batshit all over the place awards.

    Since I know that you are all way better at writing than I, there will not be any
    disappointment. Spread some love and support back to you guys for putting up
    with me, and helping me along the way.

    (PS: Don't look at my dedication page. It might make you smile.) :p

    So here I go. Off to find the next set of fictional adventures. :)

    And there is nothing you can do to stop me.

  3. It is complicated to write being a bitter lonely bastard, that puts on the illusion of chaotic humor. Perhaps why I can find much enjoyment in graphically detailing a body being hacked apart, shot to hell, or enduring slow and methodical torture. Perhaps pain writes pain well. I don't feel the need to end things on a happy note, just that they end the story in the most fitting way.

    Then there is the humor laden ass that tries to push things a little to far for a laugh. Even stooping into the gutter if it fits the moment.

    It is simply much more difficult to not give in, and give up when you know you are not very good a something. Even more so when you put a lot of effort into it.

    I am not popular, and I don't have someone to be there and support me when things get crappy. But this has made me a tougher person, because I don't have any support to be lost, only the sense of failure should I simply abandon the whole ordeal. I don't want to feel like a failure and loser, and that is why I still write. Who the fuck am I kidding, I am loser. No matter how many times I lose, I know that I didn't fail.
