tygermama asked: I write fanfic because it’s fun, makes me happy and it was one of the first things I ever did that was completely my own and that I got praise for. Now, I am thinking about trying to freelance but I’m very aware that professional writing is completely…
As I got a few questions in my box this morning about “could you not think of a good response” I actually responded to a question about why I did not respond(and am now responding about it—which sort of makes it mote in a way). If anyone else has that question—please feel free to visit my blog and check it out there. Also feel free to ask further questions or quietly dislike me. However, the short and sweet is that: I felt Gail’s response didn’t negate my own opinion and felt no need to respond. However, I now have. Oops. If this does continue I do hope its more of a discussion than an argument.
Huh. I really didn’t think we were arguing. Are we arguing?
I thought you wrote a nice, thoughtful post that I responded to honestly from a different perspective and experience. “Negating” your post wasn’t really what I had in mind, but rather expanding from the position of someone who has actually worked both sides of that fence.
My honest apologies if it came off as argumentative. I am obviously pretty blunt when it comes to writing ABOUT writing, because I always feel it’s best to be honest, even if it sometimes seems harsh. Best for both parties.
