"I much prefer the sharpest criticism of a single intelligent man to the thoughtless approval of the masses."
That's the attitude I take when I choose to review someone's "work" on this website. You can of course debate how meaningful my critiques are, but I do my best. I lament that the readership on this website is composed mainly of mindless dullards who don't even know what a good story is, let alone have the ability to examine what worked and what didn't. People who will praise you for anything you write no matter how insipid or trite just because it includes a romantic pairing they like. It's not insightful, and it's not helpful at all. There are people here who want to improve, yet all the feedback they get is "update soon pls." Pathetic. I do my best to point out areas of weakness. I am sometimes blunt and sometimes harsh, but reviews like mine are the kind that some authors here desperately need. It's the kind I would prefer to have gotten back when I was a writer here. That's why it pains me so to see how defensive and downright vitriolic the response to some of my reviews can get. I've heard it all before.
- "I'm not trying to get a book deal, I'm just having fun, so shut up!" I'm not saying you have to write like a professional here, but would it kill you to want to write a better story for the people who do enjoy your work? It's a selfish attitude where they don't care about the enjoyment of their readers, they just want to be praised for everything. It's a total lie too. If their story really was just written for the fun of it, why post it publicly? Why not just write it on Word and email it to your friends? Oh, right, the reaction. You're not in it for the fun of writing, you want the reaction. And you got pissy because I didn't give you the kind of reaction you wanted. Poor baby.
- "Don't like, don't read, that simple." You hear this one a lot. Well, I had to read to know whether or not I liked it in the first place, dumb kid. What you mean to say is "don't like, don't criticize" but I'm not gonna do that. I have as much right to leave my negative reviews as anyone else does to leave positive ones.
- "You have made me want to stop writing forever." Ah the guilt trip. Well, my intention is never to make someone want to quit. I want people to improve. But if one less than positive review is enough to make you stop writing forever, you weren't going to get very far anyway.
- "English isn't my first language so that's why my grammar, vocabulary, diction, etc. is subpar!" No excuse. There are several simple work arounds. This website has hundreds if not thousands of willing proofreaders. Employ them. Or, you could simply write in your native language, crazy thought. That's the real kicker, because if English really isn't their first language, the only reason they'd write in English is for, you guessed it, the reaction again. If neither of these are up your alley, then try using the millions of resources on the internet which will help you learn English better. If you're unwilling to do any of that, then don't blame me for harshly criticizing you.
- "I don't even care what you say!" Clearly you do if it motivated a response, right? But there's nothing you can say to this. These people are committed to never improving themselves, they are dedicated to stagnating.
It's sad, really. The community on this website is just depressing, writers and readers alike. No one's here to read anything of merit. All they want is stupid romance junk. It's pathetic, right? What other word is there. Like it's so vitally important to them that Eren and Mikasa from Attack on Titan fall in love or some trash. Usually, such stories exist to make up for an unfulfilled love life, and this is the case for readers as much as it is for writers. Why else would these stories be popular? Why else would anyone care about the romance of two fictional characters from a cartoon? They're projecting their own fantasies into this world. That's why so many of them involve blatant self inserts, which is even more pathetic if you think about it, and why so many stories don't even have realistic portrayals of how romance works.
Even when it isn't romance, the content here is usually awful, and I mean dreadfully so. I search now and then for that diamond in the rough, but I never find it. No one here can write. But what should I expect from a community of high school girls? What experience would they even have to draw from? I guess that's the real problem isn't it?
Well, this ended up being a bit of a rant, didn't it? Well, what can you do? My profile. "Don't like, don't read" ;)
