Relatable and Not-So-Relatable Rants

Things that personally just get on my nerves and I thought I should share, more the less I needed somewhere to get my anger out before I blow up. Hope you can relate, because right now I feel like I'm the only one who's bugged by these things

Pushy Readers

Last topic brought me to this one. Being pushy.

I haven't come across these that much because, well, no one comments on my story! But I have seen these out there. Now, some readers don't write, therefore they don't understand how long and how much energy it takes to create a visual image with words. Do you think we, as authors, just slap a bunch of words together and call it a book? 


Not only do we have to make sure it makes sense, we have to work on transition, voice, tone and tense. Do you think it just flows effortlessly from our fingertips? No, good work (GOOD WORK) takes time and effort (yes, EFFORT)

Constantly pushing people to update their story the wrong way (there's a right way, then there's the wrong way) makes them NOT want to update. 

If your favorite author hasn't updated in a while, maybe they're constructing a nice long chapter, maybe they have another book they're busy with, maybe their mom died. You see, pushing them for your convenience isn't the right thing to do. If you ask nicely like so, maybe they'll feel more obliged to write in this particular story. 

Hey! I love this story, I like how ____________, but I see you haven't updated for a while, are you okay? Please update when you have the time! xo

But people have lives, yes LIVES. We have school, just like you (well, most of us) We have families, friends, WORK! We can't just sit around the computer all day writing stuff to make you happy, sorry to brake it to you but we don't live to please you, we all have a life purpose, we have to get through school for starters, we can't sit here at all times of the day to make you happy. We have to do stuff for ourselves, too. Stop being so selfish! I'm not saying don't leave a comment because look at my last chapter, I obviously want you to leave a comment, but you don't have to be mean or pushy about it. 

And if you don't want to wait then why the hell are you still reading the story?

That's all I have to say. Goodbye.
