I was at the BBC Sherlock meme and some Anon-idiot is posting prompts like crazy. Only they add a rather horrible addendum; "Good Writer's Only, Please!"
As if the "Please" makes it al BETTER!
I posted in the meme's rant post about this. Apparently, it's okay for me to be as mean as I want so I do expect some backlash and name calling. It doesn't bother me. because of this.
We have bad writers.
We have good writers.
We have boring writers.
We have crazy writers.
We have brilliant writers.
And any other writer you can think of.
No one has the right to tell other people not to fill their prompt if the anon thinks they are a bad writer. No one has the right to tell other people that their writing is shit. Oh, don't get me wrong. It's okay to say that there are a few things that need to be fixed. But, the bottom line is, telling a bunch of people not to bother to fill a prompt because they're horrible writer is a troll-like thing to do.
I have read a lot of writing that, to me, was bad. And maybe I'll make fun of it sometimes. But seriously, I'm not going to say that person is a bad writer. Only that they need to practice. I need to practice. I know for a fact my writing isn't perfect.
This anon-idiot needs a lesson in accepting how other people write.
I mean. I hate Twilight, I don't think Meyer's can write at all. But, there are a lot of people out there that EMBRACE her writing and love her for it. A lot of people think JKR can't write either, but I love Harry Potter!
Good writing means different things to different people.
That doesn't mean someone has the right to go around and DEMAND good writing.
