Advice, Being Alone, and Amazon: Positive feedback makes me write more. And writing more makes me a better writer. I've received a fair amount of negative comments, and EVERY one of them has simply made me give up writing for a while. Sometimes months Anonymous asked: Honestly I appreclate what you've been saying about unsolicited comments an fic b/c when I was small & first started writing fic - I didn't speak English very well my 1st language ls Hawaiian Pidgin which uses some English words but they're spelled VERY differently & the grammar is VERY different & anyways I was lke a tiny child getting roasted by grown adults In the comments of my fic for spellingigrammar & it wasn't helpful It just made me an Insecure writer.I dan't write fic anymore i have literally never had good I once had a "concritter" on ff.net fail to understand the difference between Amazon reviews and fanfic reviews/comments. She used the existence of the former to justify being harsh in the latter. And l could not get her to comprehend that Amazon reviews are not the same thing as fanfic reviews #stop hurting us for your own personal ego trip if you've ever wondered why i stopped writing, it's because of exactly this. i was in a highly emotionally fragile place, writing was one of my very few healthy cathartic outlets, and one person too many decided to be 'helpful in the comments #but the one time I got a lot of negative feedback on something I posted #it stuck #it hurt #it ruined my entire day Hand bled into the rest of my week #now this was multiple people writing paragraph on how I was wrong and #something that hits home this week an have #1 dont care if they think my writing sucks #but they didnt need to share it lose to home ause all theyve done is mad and made sure ill never touch tha delete arac or fear of the se people coming after me #ionly got a couple of negative reviews but i thought about them long after l should have yeah. It didn't drive me out of the Sterek fandom. But it could have, very easily Ten years previous it almost certainly would have, because belleve me, before I was on anxlety medication, that sort of comment would have left me in a spiral for weeks. #see actually this is why I'm not writing currently and like that really made me deflate and not wanna work on the next fic #idk #dumb petty problems #I'm still a little sad about it #I'll admit that I ta te harshly -even if it's worded well #1 was almost put off writing fic forever when the forst fic i ever posted got scathingly-picked apart and l was he #l thought I was a terrible writer and never wanted to post fic again #really tho #i didn't write more tsyl for months bc of one horrible review 've gotten very tired of comments #tired and leery eaction now is more on't wan #just #sigh -don't get me wrong! #1 leay hell alone #it's not fun at all like 98% of why I'm on a03 mainly now ere so many lovely people on fnet cause there were who seem in something because i enjoy writing #like #what #why #all of this -particularly the constructive criticism section #don't be a dick -fanfic problems #and things like that are why I barely write for that ship now very important #(and a huge reason i can't bring myself to keep writing a story I'm very #-because someone wrote a nasty comment on a couple of chapters and ican't get past that) #all of my fics have been beta read by 2-3 ppl on't want any unsolicited opinions ove #as much as i wrote this fic with my whole soul #if I'm happy with it then it doesnt matter -I don't care/ #actual criticism is har arranted its impossible to just appreciate it and being a beta fjust throwing in a sentence about how you didnt like one thing or one fact is wrong isnt actually helping most of the time #and forgive my arrogant ass but unless I specifically asked for your negative critique m not gonna trust what you say anyway always despis #1 en ad to pass our papers around the class for people to metaphorically rip apart #agreed #iam the same #if I dont ask for critique then dont do it pls even if you are being good mannered #if I want critiques i will ask someone spe #if I'm looki ing for constructive feedback # why are you telling me about a perceived plot hole in a 104k word fic #pst it wasnt a plot hole I did th npurpose cknowledge given that we've gotter having free fic #some don't want to improve! #maybe in a broad sense yes #if I knit a blanket and give it as a gift none of these autho you improvement #1 don't want the only thing out of the recipien ! #that's just shitty you were given a gift ay someo tiny comment alon in it wasn't that bad actually othered m #even if they specifically told me that they liked it #it took an 11 friend's comment about it for me to let it go and be at peace #they knew enoug different culture #someone might get 99 praises flame) that stays with them #1 have a pretty good ego about my writing eta readers sometimes an en ис #there's plenty of stuff i wouldn't share online simply because the criticism ould hu on away from my passion #this #this so much #i accept criticism from very few people #because they know how to tell it to me #even if sometimes it does sting #1 trust these people to know what is missing/lacking/bad about my writing ince i have asked for it ont wa m when i finally post my stories #1 just wanna know if people have lik #1 don't care #clearly it wasn't written for you #the improvemen one reason only #because I've kept writing- and reading) #I've honed my skilled by myself ed them #ifn ot #don't tell me ar een made for ou can say something nice about thi for a friend and spent years of my life on for you can shut up i feel like these are the pe writing workshop #they need to grow the fuck up are forever stuck in their creat #and get out of our comment sections #well i am glad someone thinks this way! #1 always feel bad for wanting po sitive feedback #1 don't mind people asking me questions #and I don't always mind comments about how i've improved #but god it pisses me off when you point out typoes y own editing bc i don't always use a beta -and that's it #fin e?? #I'm doing this for free fuck off ffanfiction #i get that people want to be helpful Abut you're supposed to ask if your help is needed for wait for your help to be requested hank you #im so shy abot my writing and then i got a comment that started hmmm dove into all the things they didnt like and thought ishpuld an change Hand genuinely i wasnt sure theyd even read it because this stuff was so backward ho did it make me feel shit #It's true #1ike if you wanna give it to me then ask and I'll be okay probably but someone else might not be #and goddamn it's for fun #THANKYOU #slow clap e number of time pent all day obsessing over mean little #mood #im dealing with this rn and it's pissing me off Hunless you're someone I Actually Know #then fuck off in # agree so much with this #and I get shit over it occasionally #but honestly #I'm not a published author #this isnt my job it's just a bit of fun #and I am not about that negativity #let me play in peace #some people think their opinion or correction is SO to be said great that it just HAS as i #as if they are fucking experts on antic #1 don't care if you are an editor in real life #if you aren't my beta #keep your mouth shut on concrit #it's simple #really much #people can tell me all they want about my spelling errors at opinion is somehow (because there's always one or two) #and i-don't care #im not tDing it #especially not spending hours writing #yes this #i'm not a native speaker and I already know i make mistakes #so give us a break 1 still posted the thing for you #fanfiction #I'm honestly probably never going to write fanfic ever again #you'll never catch me writing TW fic ever again #I've learned my lesson I have peopleI take my work to for critique. Serious critique. I want that criticism, and to be better. If l post something and don't say it's in some level of a finished form or hey let me know what you think, probably best to assume I'm not looking for your red pen insight in my inbox. literally like, I got my first comment on a fic a while back that wasn't just keysmashing or compliments or wtv, it was literally just advice, but it hit me like a sack of bricks to the face and lost the will to continue the fic I was working on when I read that comment my mood plummeted off a cliff in the span of a couple sentences. This is pretty Rich actually, because l have had my life destroyed by online Critics on stories I just posted for fun Thank you, Kedreeva. This is also how I feel when my partner tries to give me concrit on my Overwatch game play. I didn't ask you for concrit. Please leave me alone. You're ruining my fun thing by turning it into homework. Unsolicited concrit is entitled wank #honestly keep it to your damn selves # constructive criticism is a huge part of why I don't fucking write anymore ck off with that shit #I've seen too many writers give up tAnd stop writing few a ss holes who thought they needed to tell these people that they didn't like their story for some reason #1m sometimes still thinking about that one Concrit comment I got years ago #important #fanfiction #writing #criticism #that's one of the reasons I never write sterek again #whereas with my writing? Dont -please #even if y #1m going to remember the one inconsequential bad thing #AT MOST you can point out like a spelling error or two #but honestly don't bother if I missed them on the proof then I probably don't care enough to edit it again ou leave the nicest comme nt otherwis NOW #as someone who writes #i hate hate hate concrit on works that are posted unless I've specifically asked for more bad that im s ometimes way too much of a wimp when it comes to concrit #Tbh I'm very wary of criticism #I've had most people do it in a way that negatively affected the way I see my work #Asking first is a wonderful way to go about it! kedreeva: When I say “writers don’t want your unsolicited criticism” and “leaving unsolicited criticism on fanfiction hurts writers” THIS is what I mean. This isn’t even all of them, this is just from a FEW posts on the subject. Read through these, and then look me in the eyes and say you’re ~helping writers~ by leaving that criticizing comment on someone’s fic when they didn’t ask you to. You’re hurting or, at best, annoying us. You’re hurting fandom. You’re not helping us.
Alive, Bodies , and Facebook: IS IT REALLY JuST YOUR BODY? Facebook.com/OnlineForLife truckyousasha: thekaraokeninja: fandomsandfeminism: generalmaluga: albinwonderland: fandomsandfeminism: betterthanabortion: “My body, my choice” only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake. Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to. See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.  Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.  To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.  You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.  reblogging for commentary  But, assuming the mother wasn’t raped, the choice to HAVE a baby and risk sacrificing their “bodily autonomy” is a choice that the mother made. YOu don’t have to have sex with someone. Cases of rape aside, it isn’t ethical to say abortion is justified. The unborn baby has rights, too.  First point: Bodily autonomy can be preserved, even if another life is dependent on it. See again the example about the blood donation.  And here’s another point: When you say that “rape is the exception” you betray something FUNDAMENTALLY BROKEN about your own argument. Because a fetus produced from sexual assault is biologically NO DIFFERENT than a fetus produced from consensual sex. No difference at all. If one is alive, so is the other. If one is a person, so is the other. If one has a soul, then so does the other. If one is a little blessing that happened for a reason and must be protected, then so is the other.  When you say that “Rape is the exception” what you betray is this: It isn’t about a life. This isn’t about the little soul sitting inside some person’s womb, because if it was you wouldn’t care about HOW it got there, only that it is a little life that needs protecting. When you say “rape is the exception” what you say is this: You are treating pregnancy as a punishment. You are PUNISHING people who have had CONSENSUAL SEX but don’t want to go through a pregnancy. People who DARED to have consensual sex without the goal of procreation in mind, and this is their “consequence.”  And that is gross.  ^ THIS. This is this this THIS THIS THIS. THIS!!!!! This is probably the strongest and well worded/supported argument for abortion that I have ever read.

That’s the worst analogy ever. </p> <p>You know what we say when we get bucked off a horse? Get back on. Control the fear, don’t let the fear control you. I’ve almost died many different ways, and I learn from it and don’t let the fear control me.</p> <p>I especially don’t go out trying to dictate laws that will affect 325 million people without actually understanding what I’m talking about. This kid and people who support him are making a complete and utter mockery of the anti-gun stance by not knowing the first thing about guns, or the laws that are already on the book.</p> <p>Being almost killed doesn’t make someone a good advocate for a thing. 325 million people have every right to criticize someone who knows nothing about the thing he’s trying to ban. He can certainly talk all he wants, but we all have the right to tell him how and why he’s wrong and shouldn’t be dictating more useless laws on everyone else.</p> </blockquote> <p>Some of what you say I can see your point of view, but the way many people are dealing with this is very distasteful. The people bashing traumatised 17 year olds online are doing nothing but displaying how the world has become viscous, toxic, and immoral with only concern for political and financial gain. We’re all entitled to our opinions when they do not hurt others, whether anti gun control views are hurtful to others is still up for debate so I won’t be hypocritical and in turn bash you for your opinions. But if you agree with or participate in the harmful jokes towards minors, which the one above is skirting on this, then I absolutely will defend these kids regardless of their politics because violence of any type should not be used to prove points, especially considering it does nothing but prove there’s no actual point to be made.</p> </blockquote> <p>I don’t see any harmful jokes in this thread, nor do I agree with harmful jokes. People should focus on facts and evidence, not attacking someone.</p> <p>I live in an area that has very strict gun laws, and very high crime rates. Those criminals are not using legally gained guns, most of the time it’s a felon with a firearm. In the past 10 years, an average of around 8 children (18 and under) per year died in school shootings. More children are killed riding the school bus per year, yet the media makes school shootings seem like an epidemic, when it’s not.</p> <p>They are driving fear needlessly into people. Should we have precautions and safeguards? Of course. We protect government officials with firearms, we protect banks and courthouses and many other buildings with firearms, yet we don’t protect our own children.</p> <p>Around 400 children every year are shot in gang related drive by shootings just in Los Angeles alone, by illegal firearms. There is no law that is going to stop that. The laws that are in place that should have stopped the Parkland shooter failed because law enforcement didn’t do their job, on many occasions. They were warned, multiple times prior to the shooting, and during the shooting, they stood outside the building and did nothing while children were killed.</p> <p>Marching to ban firearms from citizens is not going to stop the law enforcement from failing again. Those people who failed at doing their job must be held accountable above all else, the corruption within the district needs to be addressed and put into the open and destroyed. Focusing on guns will help no one. People need to stop looking at the tool, and look at how to fix the actual root of the problems. </p> <p>For crime in general, this means working within the communities, going after corruption in the government, in the school districts, fixing the education system, helping people stay out of poverty. Poverty and education are key factors in solving crime, but also population density, diversity of culture, neighboring countries, and the ability to trust law enforcement. These are huge problems, and when people focus on the tool, it’s like they’re too busy looking at a mole on someone’s leg while they bleed out of a massive wound in their chest. </p> <p>And when people not only focus on the tool, but obviously know nothing of what they’re talking about, it makes it worse. It’s like someone claiming that if a woman gets pregnant from being raped, she wasn’t really raped because they think women can only conceive if they enjoyed it. It’s a blatant and dangerous form of ignorance, where they don’t care that they know nothing, they’re going to try to push for more laws against things they know nothing about, and that is a serious problem.</p> <p>It’s not right when either side goes for cheap shots, insults, ad hominems, etc. People should stick to the facts, especially when it comes to dictating a law that will affect hundreds of millions of innocent people. They shouldn’t spread fear, they are causing little kids to be terrified of something they are statistically probably never going to experience. Life is dangerous, anything can kill us, why should children be made to fear something like this? Why should someone who experienced something traumatic be considered an expert on it?</p> </blockquote> <p><a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mXOOgaC6jNRYdkvE8EDH5Kg">@writetheworldyours</a> What specifically have I said that was abusive to the victims? You’re the one who said what I posted warranted an “immediate unfollow”. This post was not a “harmful joke”, it was a picture of a fucking headline and an expression of my exasperation with this person trying to punish law-abiding companies for existing. There was literally nothing abusive here.</p> </blockquote> <p>When these “traumatized kids” start using the source of their trauma as a sledgehammer to force through their political goals, I start having problems.</p></blockquote> <p>Okay, quick question: I remember hearing something on here about Hogg not even being there during the shooting? Was there any truth to that claim?</p></blockquote> <p>^</p></blockquote> <p>Pretty sure that was a misinterpretation based on an out of context clip where he talks about bringing his camera from home after the initial Shooting. It’s the uncertainty of the accuracy of that claim which has stopped me from even making it because I don’t want to use any information that is false. Y’know because I’m so “abusive to the victims”, right <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mXOOgaC6jNRYdkvE8EDH5Kg">@writetheworldyours</a>? 🙄</p>

But if you agree with or participate in the harmful jokes towards minors, which the one above is skirting on this, then I absolutely will defend these kids regardless of their politics because violence of any type should not be used to prove points, especially considering it does nothing but prove there’s no actual point to be made.</p> </blockquote> <p>I don’t see any harmful jokes in this thread, nor do I agree with harmful jokes. People should focus on facts and evidence, not attacking someone.</p> <p>I live in an area that has very strict gun laws, and very high crime rates. Those criminals are not using legally gained guns, most of the time it’s a felon with a firearm. In the past 10 years, an average of around 8 children (18 and under) per year died in school shootings. More children are killed riding the school bus per year, yet the media makes school shootings seem like an epidemic, when it’s not.</p> <p>They are driving fear needlessly into people. Should we have precautions and safeguards? Of course. We protect government officials with firearms, we protect banks and courthouses and many other buildings with firearms, yet we don’t protect our own children.</p> <p>Around 400 children every year are shot in gang related drive by shootings just in Los Angeles alone, by illegal firearms. There is no law that is going to stop that. The laws that are in place that should have stopped the Parkland shooter failed because law enforcement didn’t do their job, on many occasions. They were warned, multiple times prior to the shooting, and during the shooting, they stood outside the building and did nothing while children were killed.</p> <p>Marching to ban firearms from citizens is not going to stop the law enforcement from failing again. Those people who failed at doing their job must be held accountable above all else, the corruption within the district needs to be addressed and put into the open and destroyed. Focusing on guns will help no one. People need to stop looking at the tool, and look at how to fix the actual root of the problems. </p> <p>For crime in general, this means working within the communities, going after corruption in the government, in the school districts, fixing the education system, helping people stay out of poverty. Poverty and education are key factors in solving crime, but also population density, diversity of culture, neighboring countries, and the ability to trust law enforcement. These are huge problems, and when people focus on the tool, it’s like they’re too busy looking at a mole on someone’s leg while they bleed out of a massive wound in their chest. </p> <p>And when people not only focus on the tool, but obviously know nothing of what they’re talking about, it makes it worse. It’s like someone claiming that if a woman gets pregnant from being raped, she wasn’t really raped because they think women can only conceive if they enjoyed it. It’s a blatant and dangerous form of ignorance, where they don’t care that they know nothing, they’re going to try to push for more laws against things they know nothing about, and that is a serious problem.</p> <p>It’s not right when either side goes for cheap shots, insults, ad hominems, etc. People should stick to the facts, especially when it comes to dictating a law that will affect hundreds of millions of innocent people. They shouldn’t spread fear, they are causing little kids to be terrified of something they are statistically probably never going to experience. Life is dangerous, anything can kill us, why should children be made to fear something like this? Why should someone who experienced something traumatic be considered an expert on it?</p> </blockquote> <p><a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mXOOgaC6jNRYdkvE8EDH5Kg">@writetheworldyours</a> What specifically have I said that was abusive to the victims? You’re the one who said what I posted warranted an “immediate unfollow”. This post was not a “harmful joke”, it was a picture of a fucking headline and an expression of my exasperation with this person trying to punish law-abiding companies for existing. There was literally nothing abusive here.</p>
Apparently, Bad, and Bored: Woman Asks Why A Guy She Turned Down Didn't Try Harder, Gets The Perfect Response Like Bored Panda on FB Like 13M 4 days ago by Rokas A guy invites a girl on a date, tries all of his best moves, but she says no. A guy has to move on, otherwise, it's harassment. Unless it isn't? Recently, a girl surprised the internet when she posted a question on Quora, asking why her date wasn't a mind reader. She wrote, "A guy asked me out today and I told him "no', but I wanted him to try harder. Why didn't he try again?" Naturally, a question like this deserves something more than a simple answer, an answer that's written in the same language. Luckily, Ron Rule typed a response the inquirer should've understood. Scroll down to check out what he wrote! Someone surprised Quora with a strange question A guy asked me out today and I told him "no", but I wanted him to try harder. Why didn't he try again? Luckily, this guy responded with an example the inquirer had to understand Ron Rule, CEO @ As Seen On TV L+ Answered Feb 3 A girl asked me what I wanted for lunch and I said "pizza", but I really wanted steak. Why did she bring me pizza? CS. Do you see how stupid that question sounds? That's how your question sounds. Amused by the exchange, people started sharing their own experiences Malovus 5 pts I had a girl dump me once, a month later she started sending me angry texts about how I didn't fight to keep her and she was only testing me FriendlyNeighborhoodUrologist 1,153 pts Same scenario happened to me a year back. She freaked out "what do you mean 'Ok' don't you want to keep me?" BobLeeSw4ger 20 pts I asked a girl out. Was declined. She told my brother i took it like a gentleman. Little flirt later guess who got that date. MrFnortner 336 pts My wife does that. Her: You want chicken or salman? Me: Salmon. Her: Well I need to cook the chicken before it spoils. Me: Well, why did... Icommentandpostmypets 4,516 pts Play stupid games, win nothing of value. Had a ex do this. Dated a month, asked me to just be friends. Said sure. Got mad I didn't fight. MakingYouReadThingsInSamElliottsVoice 15 pts "No means no, except when a guy is supposed to read minds and know it doesn't, but it may later mean no, unless the girl changes her mind." intaglioguy 9 pts "I wanted to play games. He didn't play along. I've de- cided to blame him so I can avoid personal responsibil- ity for my actions." TheGirlInTheFireplace 7 pts No, sh't like this pisses me off. My last gf of 8 years left me on the day I was going out to buy a ring for her because she 'didn't feel wanted enough'. It tore me apart inside but I learned to move on. Kinda. A few months later she texted me and told me the reason she left me was because she wanted me to chase after her. I WANTED TO SO BADLY but I thought "It's over" meant it was over. No one will <p><a href="http://the-memeblades-chosen-one.tumblr.com/post/171072958064/celticpyro-eeveelutionsforequality" class="tumblr_blog">the-memeblades-chosen-one</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="http://celticpyro.tumblr.com/post/171069509284/eeveelutionsforequality-someoneintheshadow446" class="tumblr_blog">celticpyro</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://eeveelutionsforequality.tumblr.com/post/171057059312/someoneintheshadow446-apparently-this-isnt-a-bad" class="tumblr_blog">eeveelutionsforequality</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://someoneintheshadow446.tumblr.com/post/171056525840/apparently-this-isnt-a-bad-stereotype-from" class="tumblr_blog">someoneintheshadow446</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Apparently this isn’t a bad stereotype from sitcoms and that real women who do this exist. </p></blockquote> <p>It’s not just women, I’ve dated women and guys who do this. I’m not the kind of person who “fights for” anybody - if they say that they’re leaving, of course I’ll ask why and talk it through with them, but I’m not going to buy a bouquet and appear at their door at 3am to try to get something from them that they said they didn’t want to give. The amount of times that I’ve heard “If you really loved me, you’d fight for me.” and I’ve been like “Well, if I really respected you and cared for you then I’d want you to be happy, rather than wanting you to do whatever it is that I want you to do.” and they come out with “So, what, you don’t want to be with me?” and I’m like “It’s not about what I want. If I wanted somebody’s watch and they didn’t want to give me the watch, I wouldn’t just take the watch. This is no different.” and then they push and push like “Just tell me that you want to be with me and I’ll stay.” and I’m like “I’m not going to do that, I want you to do what will make you happy.” and then I get called a heartless psychopath who never loved them and will never love anybody… so that’s fun. </p> <p>~ Vape </p> </blockquote> <p>Just…don’t do this. This is bad. Communicate clearly, some people will think you actually mean what you say and others are struggling with social skills enough. If you want to stay, stay. Don’t say ‘no’ and expect someone to not respect your answer. Heck, why would you WANT someone to not respect your boundaries?</p> <p>Stuff like this ruins the legitimacy of ‘No means no’ and #MeToo. <br/></p> </blockquote> <p><i><a href="http://the-memeblades-chosen-one.tumblr.com/post/170364684149/maybe-heshe-is-just-playing-hard-to-get-ok">throw back to what I said about mind games/“playing hard to get”</a></i></p> </blockquote> <p>I knew someone in my church girls small group when I was a young teenager who bragged about how her mother purposely cut off all communication with her father (before they were together) in order to see how hard he would work to contact her. I distinctly remember saying I thought that was stupid and everyone else in the room shooting me down and saying it was romantic and great that she was “playing hard to get“ to “get him to pursue her“ and honestly screw that noise. Life‘s too short for head games and in this climate especially guys would be a whole lot less inclined to keep pursuing a woman who declined them for fear of being accused of something insidious. Just be honest, people.</p>
