A kind of rant, in the style of a poem.
- There is nothing wrong with constructive criticism, and you have the right to say whatever you want. But people also have the right to be upset by what you say, even though you are completely allowed to say it. So just because you CAN say something, think, do you really need to?
I love reviewing and giving constructive criticism if I can, so I understand why you'd feel... bad? Unappreciated, perhaps.
There is something else I'd like to say but I won't because it could be upsetting for you. So I'll just leave it there.
Author's responseYou can say it if you want, I don't care. I got music on so I'm alright.
(#) atomickilljoy 2013-07-28 02:22:56 PMI agree with Poppana. There's always state of opinion, but there's a way to go about saying it.
Some things are better left unsaid, too.
Not everyone's stuff are gonna be catered for you to read, and I think it was a bit rude to call it 'cliche'. How do you think Christy feels, reading that? I imagine she's hurt, because I would be too, thinking that a story I wrote is terrible or "cliche"
You can say these things, okay? But try to be more polite.
Just because you say "No offense or anything" doesn't make what you say polite. If that were the logic, I could say, "You're a fucking whore, no offense or anything" to just about everyone.
Constructive criticism is used to improve someone's writing, correct? It's not used, then, to cater it to your standards. It's not used to dictate what plots can and cannot be written according to your standards.
The plot is not as cliche as you think. Just because you wrote a bunch of self insert suicide/depression stories doesn't mean the whole entire site has. I mean, I have but it didn't end in suicide.
Anyways, I'm done here. Take my advice or leave it, I'm just not interested in starting any arguments. I've never been in a FicWad one before, and today is not my day.

But honestly, over the time. You don't really have a right to say "oh I can tell you constructive critisism get over it"
Because I remember someone who got mighty pissed over someone correcting something in their fic. (I get its the past, but the things you were ranting about being able to say, are honestly things you got pissed at us about because someone told you)
...Again, I'm not trying to be a complete cunt
(#) RyanCyanideKiller 2013-07-28 02:38:20 PMThere's a funny thing about opinions. Just because you have one doesn't mean people want to know about it. Constructive criticism is meant to be polite. Think about what you're saying for a moment. Would it be hurtful if someone said it to you? Is there a chance it would be hurtful?
