thread is a dead medium

Anonymous 85788

I wouldn’t say dead is the right word. I don’t like the effect the market has on fiction but it’s certainly still alive

With an actually cool art like drawing, music or acting/movie making.

No medium is dead until no one knows how to perform it anymore.

go crazy with writing, don't hold the writing rules, write sideways, change languages mid way, add some scribbles sometimes, perhaps a riddle or two in there

Writing is not too dead, I am writing a story and I get some good feedback on it, it's not even fanfiction

What are you talking about? People read books everyday. Hell, even shitty zines have cult followings.

Don't get discouraged my darling, if you feel like you are writing for other people's approval for doing it for the wrong reasons. Remember that writing is an art and a self-improvement type of hobby. Write something that makes you feel good or makes you grow, or both.

No sane Anon is going to spoonfeed you on what's going to be the next thing, OP.

1. Find an indie game in the making.
2. Join the team.
3. Write the story for their functioning game.
4. Game gets cancelled duo to lack of deadlines and passion.
5. ???
6. Profit.

Russian novels are great :^)

Have you ever read a copy of writer's market?
My mom destroyed her life trying to be a writer, but she never once went to a legitimate publisher or tried to create a marketing writeup.
I think any creative work has to be viewed as a product unfortunately.

the question is how do I cope with my stifling writers block

>happily working on manuscript on rooftop
>moid comes up and starts trying to flirt with me
>be polite so he doesn't murder me, hope he goes away
>comes back next day to bother me
>comes back next day and sits himself next to me for 20+ minutes trying to talk to me, have to stop my music and awkwardly sit there and humor him until I can naturally fit into the conversation that I have a bf
>see he gets the hint
>he still talks another 10 minutes trying to play it cool before he fucks off
>haven't been to roof since
>lost the roll I had been on, can't get the magic back
how a moid ruined my novel

>>be polite so he doesn't murder me, hope he goes away
Sounds like mental illness. If we was going to murder you it doesn't really matter what your response was.
