It’s a blog that tries to tackle the worst of fanfiction! We’re gonna start updating regularly now, please follow us!
I’m not going to start with some bullshit lead like “one of the hardest things to do in writing is to anticipate how your audience will react.” That’s bullshit because there are a lot of hard things about writing and it’s ridiculous to number them.
But from my own experience and from the responses I read from my peers, it seems that new writers have a lot of trouble figuring out how their readers think. It’s a skill, and a tough one to get the hang of because there’s no easy way to tell you where to start. Still, if you can get the hang of it, you’re writing will be able to do a lot of really cool stuff.
It’s nice to float. The capsule I’m sitting in is about six inches wider than the fartherest I can spread my arms. The walls are white, the various buttons and switches are silver and labeled in blue LEDs. Nothing takes away from the window, and I just sit there and watch the Earth, wishing I had brought Tang and wondering things I can’t articulate outside of my brain. Until my view is obscured, a shadow across the window, eclipsing the earth. A TV. It flickers on and I see the face of a friend.
I also have two other blogs that are, at the moment, seldom updated.
The first is Abandon the Ship, which is a blog about terrible fan fiction and the writing process.
The second is Goddammit Bronies where I mock bronies for all the weird and gross things that go on in their fandom.
So read those, and be happy!
If you happened by cracked today, or haven’t yet, make sure you check out my new article! It’s about some of the strangest My Little Pony fan art that’s floating around out there on the internet. A fellow writer who is ten times better at me with writing was a huge help in putting it together, and in fact it was his pitch originally, so he deserve most of the kudos.
Still, it’s always nice. Now I’m going to waste the rest of the day pretending to be itnernet famous and reading comments. I’ll share my favorites on here.
Today, I got to be underwhelmed. A few days ago CD Projekt RED teased a new game, Cyberpunk 2077. And even though CD PR’s Witcher series is pretty damn great, I have almost no desire to play this game at all. And a lot of that has to do with the name, and the rest of that has to do with how boring the teaser is.
But first, let’s start with the name. For context: Cyberpunk 2077 is an off-shoot of the pen-and-paper RPG Cyberpunk 2020. That means that the generic name is just branching off of a franchise with an equally generic name.
Here’s a jump
A new poem
Today was just like before
But with better music
Cold and hard, like wind
But shows a world through diamonds
But could you go there?
Even though I failed the challenge, I’m not going to stop writing these Haikus because goddamn it failure is never an excuse to stop.
Don’t get angry yet
Time will never be your friend
Make peace with your mind
