I’ve not been feeling great for the last few weeks, so rather than a normal tutorial post I thought I’d do something simple and silly about writer comments and their translations. Hope you enjoy it 🙂
Would you like to read this chapter when you have some time? No rush.
Translation: Stop everything you are doing and read this. Now!
Tell me what you think and be honest, I can take it.
Translation: Oh my God, please don’t say anything negative. I sweated blood on this for like 4 years and if you give so much as an eye twitch will send me crying in the corner.
You don’t like my protagonist? Oh okay, no I understand, that’s fine.
Translation: What is wrong with you!? My protagonist is awesome and how can you not see that? You’re dead to me!
Yes, I have a little case of writers’ block right now, but it’s fine, it doesn’t really bother me anymore. It’ll pass any day now.
Translation: Holy Hell, this is never going to end!!! I will never write another word ever. I’m done, I’ll never be a real writer. *throws a tantrum on the rug*
I love every aspect of writing, yes even editing.
Translation: I think I have read this damn manuscript so many times it’s starting to blur and I just keep putting in words and then taking them out on the next pass. GOD, I HATE EDITING!!! When will this end?
Pfft, no I don’t mind if I never become a full-time writer. It’s all good.
Translation: Please let me be a full-time writer and be paid to do the one thing I truly love. I don’t know how long I can hold my crazy back in my “normal” job and I’ve already run through enough murder scenes for my boss, that I am seriously wondering if I’m actually going to turn into a serial killer one of these days.
Oh yes, book signings seem like a great idea. I would love to do one.
Translation: Serious!? People expect me to read aloud from my own book, then answer questions and make eye contact with readers!? Are you people insane!? *introvert overload*
Being a writer is awesome, it’s what I was born to do.
