可以自己干的十种彩票app平台大全

加比诺·伊格莱西亚斯(Gabino Iglesias) shares his list of ten types of 彩票app平台大全s who can go fuck themselves and explain why some crime writers deserve such an insult. 

早在2017年,我为LitReactor写了一篇文章,突然意识到它肯定会获得的反应数量。您会看到,那时我已经从事专栏作家工作将近十年了。一切都从我回到波多黎各最大报纸撰写的每月政治专栏开始。

By the time I stopped writing it in early 2016, I’d received four death threats, thousands of “corrections,” and enough insult to last me a last me a lifetime. In any case, I tweeted this after finishing that column: “Everyone who’s gotten angry at 上 e of my columns should hear the stuff I don’t even bother to pitch.” The result was almost immediate; a bunch of 彩票app平台大全s said they wanted to read some of the stuff I didn’t bother to pitch to editors.

I’m all about making my friends happy, so I wrote the first incarnation of this list and it was published in a venue that’s now defunct. There were angry emails, insults, invitations to fight, blogs written in response, etc. Sadly, I see some of the same behavior that inspired that column still happening. So, 这里 we are. I’m ready to make some more friends. Let’s get started, shall we? Here are ten types of 彩票app平台大全s who can go fuck themselves (God I’m good at making friends!):

1.讨厌几乎所有关于写作的彩票app平台大全

There are a bunch of 彩票app平台大全s out there who are constantly complaining about how hard editing is, how much it sucks to not be famous, how the market is flooded with books, how much rejection blows, how dumb agents are for not thinking their work is outstanding, how lonely this gig is, how most editors are idiots, and how they failed to meet their self-imposed word count for the day. Listen, if writing brings you nothing but pain, then maybe this isn’t the gig for you.

上面提到的一切都是作为作家的一部分。您不必享受它,但是重要的事情(即编写自身)应该带给您足够的快乐,胜过其他所有东西。实际上,即使我花大量时间告诉人们继续,努力,加倍努力和继续写作,我在这里还是要告诉你,如果写作破坏了你的幸福并没有带给你快乐,那么也许你应该辞职。

There are a bunch of 彩票app平台大全s out there who are constantly complaining about how hard editing is, how much it sucks to not be famous…[和]这场演出有多寂寞…

Seriously. Everyone’s an 彩票app平台大全. We need more educators, honest police officers, taxi drivers, cooks, etc. There are other options. Editing is how you make your work better. Stop bitching about it. Rejection is part of the game. If you can’t take it, don’t play. I received a rejection last week. Did I complain? No, I thanked the editor for his time and sat down to read the story and try to figure out how I can make it better before sending it elsewhere.

没有人欠我任何东西,所以我忙着尝试着进入出版物。我赢了,我庆祝了。我输了,我努力工作,然后再试一次。如果写作是一项艰巨而艰巨的任务,而它给您带来的灵感只是抱怨,那就着眼于不同的事物并探索新的创意渠道。

2.是专业的长尾骑士的彩票app平台大全

Two things are bound to happen if you do the writing thing long enough. The first is that some good folks will reach out and help you. There are a lot of great people in the publishing world, and they take the time to help others out. The second thing is that you will meet big name 彩票app平台大全s at conventions or readings or 上 line.

We all need as much help as we can get, but what we do is mostly up to us. That’s why it makes me angry when I see 彩票app平台大全s out there befriending successful 彩票app平台大全s just because they think that being friends with them is a quick path to publication or an agent or a blurb. Stop doing that. Riding someone’s coattails makes you look like an asshole. I know many successful 彩票app平台大全s and the 上 e thing they have in common is that they are humble people who sit down and put in the work.

You should do the same. 唐’t ask for handouts. 唐’t ask for agent introductions. 唐’t befriend editors just so they’ll put you in their anthologies. Oh, and don’t put up with bullshit from famous 彩票app平台大全s because you think 上 e day they’ll blurb your book.

3.忘了谦虚的彩票app平台大全

上一类与此相关。你们中很多人都知道,我也是书评人,让我拒绝您的书本的最简单方法是一封电子邮件,告诉我您如何令人兴奋,伟大,令人惊奇,体裁重新定义,杰出,独特,精湛和特别书是。你花了很多时间写小说。我明白那个。相信我,我愿意。我也是作家我希望人们阅读并欣赏您的作品,并对它说好话。

发生这种情况时,您可以引用它们。我不想让你告诉我你的工作多么出色。不要告诉我您认为您是下一位史蒂芬·金(顺便说一句,这很可悲,因为我们已经有了史蒂芬·金,我们需要的是第一位您)。自信(“我想你会喜欢这种叙述”)和混蛋(“这是这十年来你读的最好的书”)之间有一个很好的界限。真的,去他妈的你自己。伙计们,保持谦虚。

4.不懂社交媒体的彩票app平台大全

在线上有大约一万亿篇文章告诉人们使用社交媒体作为平台来展示您的个性和品牌,与他人互动,建立社区并出售书籍时,什么可行,什么无效。但是,我仍然看到人们每天都在Facebook和Twitter上发送关于他们的书的DM,第二个人接受他们的朋友请求或开始关注他们。停止。在做。那。拉屎。这是不专业和烦人的。

您可能会很有趣并且引人入胜,这将带来更多的销售,人脉,友谊和关注…

Yeah, too many people do it and this is probably the entry that’s going to lead to the most hate. I don’t care. Pay attention to what people say about 彩票app平台大全s who do that and you’ll see I’m right. Sending a DM with a link to your book is the literary equivalent of the unsolicited dick pic. 唐’t do it.

您可能会很有趣且引人入胜,而不是在您参与的每个线程中都粘贴指向您的书的链接,这将带来更多的销售,人脉,友谊和关注。此外,当人们提出建议时,请勿提及您的书。试着花更多的时间谈论别人的工作,而不是谈论自己的工作。再者,在与他们进行互动之前,请勿使用DM来出售您的书籍。社交媒体可以是一个很好的工具,但前提是您正确使用它。

可以自己干的十种彩票app平台大全

5.压倒人们阅读和谈论其他流派的作家

我不看漫画。我读的小说不多,幻想也很少。你做?太棒了!如果您提出了一些要点,我什至会检查您推荐的内容。放下别人,因为他们喜欢你不喜欢的东西,就像把某人当作白痴,是因为他们喜欢沙拉上的其他调味料。我喜欢恐怖,犯罪,怪诞,诗歌,非小说,黑色,文学小说以及许多其他东西。我喜欢花时间分享对自己喜欢的事物的爱,而不是讨厌浪漫和历史小说。

我不喜欢某件事并不会使事情变得糟糕,也不意味着喜欢那件事的人就不那么聪明了。根据自己的爱侮辱他人而不是分享自己的爱的彩票app平台大全可以自己操蛋。

6.想要“破坏叙事”的彩票app平台大全

Let me explain this 上 e before you react. I’ve seen too many 彩票app平台大全s who made their name with traditional narratives say that they now want to destroy narrative. I’ve also seen 彩票app平台大全s who have never sold a story say that their main goal is to destroy narrative. I’m all for destroying shit. We can start out by destroying patriarchy, racism, or transphobia.

However, when you say you want to destroy narrative, I have to stop, sit down, and analyze both your discourse and your work. Every time I’ve done that, the result is the same: usually it is an 彩票app平台大全 who sucks at storytelling, or a known 彩票app平台大全 who made his or her name writing traditional narratives, and is now out of ideas.

当然,我会检查您的实验性作品,但是如果您的宣传语是“我的小说没有故事,人物,情节或对话。基本上是用逗号在页面上拉屎。我也在那里放了些涂鸦,”好吧,我要在那张照片上通过。此外,这条线几乎总是来自将他们的工作描述为“聪明”,“大脑”或“叙事后”的人们。亲爱的,我以前被骗过,所以现在骗我真是太难了。您想杀死叙述吗?也许我们需要坐下来谈论您的讲故事如何。

7.比写作花费更多时间的作家

你知道你是谁。您每天写2000字,讨厌别人,捍卫您以前的评论,拥有图书馆,胡说八道。我环顾了大多数成功的朋友,找不到他们浪费时间这样做的一个例子。你生气了?写。您想提出一点吗?写。您想花所有的时间在线战斗吗?前进!无论如何,我们可能不想阅读您没有写的书。

8. s who don’t support other 彩票app平台大全s

If you think every other 彩票app平台大全 out there is your enemy, you can go fuck yourself. We’re all 上 the same boat regardless of our level of success. Retweet stuff. 分享 links. Write reviews. Protect those starting out against predatory presses. Give praise when someone deserves it. Be a good literary citizen and your grain of sand will help us construct a nice little beach free of hate and stupid nonsense.

If you think every other 彩票app平台大全 out there is your enemy, you can go fuck yourself.

试图伤害他人或竭尽全力压低他们或破坏他们的职业,这会让你变得毫无礼貌。不要做不要与做这件事的人互动。业力是一回事。您知道的,除非我们在谈论偏见。如果我们在谈论偏见,销毁它们会使您获得cookie。

9.太咸的彩票app平台大全觉得有必要回复这篇文章 

哦,在那上面对您进行了一些修改,不是吗?哈哈严重的是,如果您对其中一种感到内and,并对我非常生气,您必须写一篇博客文章告诉我我错了,和/或您觉得有必要在社交媒体上发表严厉评论……为了它!

意见和混蛋,对不对?好吧,这些是我的观点,您不会改变它们,就像我很可能不会让您停止向与您结识的每个新朋友发送带有指向您的书本链接的邮件一样(他们将取消与朋友的联系) /顺便说一下,让您不再关注速度)。无论如何,我都很讨厌。我不在乎大多数人的意见,尤其是如果他们是陌生人。

我不在乎陌生人对我的观点的看法。我称之为无忧你讨厌我,这件作品真想打架?真?好吧,快来看这些手,或者自己操吧,发芽!祝你今天愉快。

10.认为自己所做的是对世界的礼物的彩票app平台大全

You’ve met them. They share chunks of their WIP and want all of us to thank them with tears of joy running down our cheeks. They ignore all other 彩票app平台大全s because no 上 e can surpass their greatness. They talk about writing all day and you have no idea when they actually sit and write.

我们写信是因为这是唯一的选择。即使我们写的东西没有发表,我们也会写。

Oh, and their last published thing came out seven years ago in a defunct magazine. They use words like “craft” and “polishing a gem.” Here’s the main things most 彩票app平台大全s need to internalize: if you stopped writing tomorrow, the 上 ly 上 e you’d really hurt with your decision is yourself. Yeah, even if you have thousands of fans. Trust me, they’ll find something else to read. We’re lucky to do what we do. We love to do what we do.

我们写信是因为这是唯一的选择。即使我们写的东西没有发表,我们也会写。我们抽出时间与朋友,宠物,伴侣和家人在一起,独自一人坐下来,聆听脑海中的声音,写下来,然后阅读,讨厌,重写,编辑,并希望与他人分享世界。

这是一件美丽的事情,我们需要为此感到感激。当您忘记了这一点并开始认为每个人都需要关注,因为您在做自己喜欢做的​​事,而他们欠了您的那一刻,就在您开始思考人们欠您的时间和精力时,世界就变得更美好多亏了您“赠予”的故事,然后……嗯,您可以自己动手做。

奖金回合!这是基于问题的: 

Are you a racist 彩票app平台大全? Go fuck yourself.

Are you an 彩票app平台大全 who harasses women at conferences? Go fuck yourself.

Are you an 彩票app平台大全 who thinks reading fees are great because it keeps some folks from submitting? Go fuck yourself.

Are you 上 e of the 彩票app平台大全s who has threatened to kick my ass because I write about diversity in publishing? Go fuck yourself.
