Thinking about the similarities between the Narnia series and the bible itself makes me so happy :’) Yessu.
C.S. Lewis was such an amazing author, asldkghdklg I just can’t… all of the books were amazing. They are so profound and full of meaning and just… wow. I honestly think the best one is The Last Battle.
…I must read them again. I simply must.
Writing is weird.
One minute you are telling a story.
The next minute you are researching the average amount of snowfall Edinburgh gets.
or how to kill someone with a piece of barbed wire and a tomato
Or how much force it takes to dent a human skull with a can of Pepsi.
what the hell are you guys writing?
Today, Amazon announced the imminent launch of its newest endeavor, Kindle Worlds, a publishing platform for fanfiction. When I read the announcement, I was horrified, then angry, then sad. I want to take a moment to explain why this is such a tragedy.
This is important for ANYONE who writes Fanfiction. Read this now and beware.
This is some seriously important shit guys, absolutely read it.
i am gonna help you all get more followers
i will promo in groups of 10 :)
(so basically every 10 reblog i’ll promo)
Amazon Debuts ‘Kindle Worlds,’ Where Your Gossip Girl Fan Fiction Can Earn You Cash Sometimes a writer creates a universe so compelling that others feel the need to join and help flesh out that world with their own tribute fiction. And sometimes you make something crappy like Gossip…
What in the hell! Damn, this makes me hella uncomfortable. I’m torn between deleting all my online fanfiction or… hoping that this madness passes. This is so not a good idea.
People would be stealing shit left and right. Hell, they do that now and fanfiction is for free. Let’s not get into the authors who are going to be fucking pissed at this as well they should be because they won’t be getting any of that money based off of their characters.
I’m not here for this at all. I need people to profit from their own creativity, not just jumping off of someone else’s.
the biggest problem with this is that, even if you do decide to sell your fanfic through them, you won’t get much protection. once you publish - according to the details of this program - they own it. they can republish it in an anthology or in another country/language, and you won’t see an additional dime.
furthermore, the owner of the original universe and characters can take your idea and turn it into a film/book/tv show/etc and not have to compensate you at all. it’s typical Amazon bait-and-switch. on the surface, it seems alluring, but you have to read the fine print. the only way property rights’ owners would agree to this is if Amazon promised them a deal they couldn’t refuse. “you’ll get a cut of the profits AND have an endless pool of story ideas that you don’t have to pay for!” the fanfic writer will get screwed. twice.
fanfiction isn’t new. hell, the Star Trek novels are basically authorized fanfiction. at least there, the authors are properly credited and compensated. this sounds like a really, really bad idea.
I know, right. This will not end well. *headdesk*
Everyone who reblogs this will get the title of a book to read based on their bio/posts.
Everyone. I mean it.
THIS IS THE BEST POST
I HAVE EVER SEEN
they really do mean everyone
