I've been a little bummed lately because I can't seem to find a job. Just feel sad. On one hand I don't want a job, on the other hand I don't have much money left in my bank account.. *sigh* I think I'll just lie here on the floor for a while and watch X-files... why is Reyes obsessed with the Brady Bunch... and why is Scully doing it too? *shakes head* On second thought, maybe some fanfic would be better.

I always feel so bad giving people I don't know criticism, because I'm not quite sure how they'll react. I mean, a lot of people write fanfics and want to get better and, well, maybe don't like, but appreciate the comments. But other people just write for praise... Ah! So stressing sometimes.

;_; I need a job too.

Well, you're right, some fanfic writers just really don't like constructive criticism, which is why I never give them unless they specifically ask for it. The way I see it is that giving criticism takes a lot of my time and energy, but if they don't want to see them, why should I bother at all?

Unless I see real potential in the writer and REALLY like what they write.

Yeah... that's generally how I feel... but I'm on this mailing list and I really liked this girl's story and so I told her that, but I wanted to say the part where the lovers meet up again seemed to rushed...

I think you should email her privately (if you are giving criticism), instead of posting it on the mailing list.

Or have you already done so and she reacted negatively? Aiya.

That sounds like a good idea... Thanks!
