#abuse tw I have a question.. I used to be rlly into writing fan fiction until my abuser made me write them for her and now I associate writing with her.. But I don't want to.. I want to write more. But when I do I feel sad.. Any advice?

dutchbag:

Ohh, this is hard…. Maybe try writing something completely different from what you would write for her, or think only of yourself when you write, what it is you want to accomplish with this writing. Does anyone else have advice? Sorry mine is no good.

Is it only fan fiction that triggers you like this? Are there any activities you associated with writing then that you still do (i.e. listening to music or watching a tv show while writing)? Have you tried writing non-fiction for yourself (journaling, etc) to distance the act of writing from those specific circumstances? Things like smell, touch, sound, all conjure memories powerfully. Try writing a completely different way - use pen and paper instead of a computer, or use a touchscreen or a typewriter. Go to a different location. Try recording yourself or using a program like Dragon. Light incense or an aromatherapy candle. Change the sounds you hear while writing. Write to another person, or write with the intention of never letting anyone else see it. You can try joining a writing group and using that as motivation. You can even change medium - write poetry, or draw, or write music. 

Hope something helps!

I love these new "type these words into your tags box and post the first tag that automatically pops up" thingies, so fun. Let’s do another one:

  • can’t
  • don’t
  • first
  • help
  • please
  • one
  • my
  • will
  • stop
  • get
  • honestly
  • I’m

I swear I haven’t actually used some of these—or I used them, like, once, but they’re listed before tags I use frequently. Tagging is weird.

#2. =)

I have actually never thought about what I’d name my kids … as things stand, I really, really do not ever want to become pregnant and give birth, given the HUGE RANGE of life-threatening complications that can ensue (as well as the horror inherent to even the most banal of pregnancies), so I’m really only ever planning on adoption if I ever decide on kids. And given that, I think the naming process would be very different from naming an unborn child with no known personality, if I were the one to think of a name in the first place.

I need to learn how to draw a decent Batman pic.

So what you’re trying to say is that women people prefer well-drawn pictures of their favorite superheroes over really shitty indie comics about boobs?
Sounds right.

Are we supposed to feel sorry for the person whose humor comic featuring a disembodied pair of breasts on the cover is getting passed over?Incredible.

this feels like it should be a parody but it isnt and that’s hilarious
maybe try not being sexist unfunny douchelords next time

HEY, WE DO A HUMOR COMIC ABOUT [SOMETHING THAT LOOKS EXTREMELY SEXIST] HEY WHERE ARE YOU GOING

No, no way is this a serious complaint (I said to myself). No one’s that un-self aware. This has got to be a parody about gross “indie” comics skeeving up the con atmosphere, and the schadenfreude we’re totally intended to feel at their failure.
So I went to the OP’s tumblr to check context and.

This was just supposed to be a comic about how hard it can be for the unknowns to find their audience. Anything else you see is your own interpretation of the page.

They are serious. 
That is more hilarious than any punchline actually in the comic. I’m honestly crying with laughter right now.

wow cry me a THOUSAND tears about how hard it is for white men to get into the comics industry by drawing tits

I can think of very few female comic readers who wouldn’t choose the Green Lantern image over a comic with nothing but boobs on the cover :P If the OP wants female fans as their target audience, they need to make some changes or expect not to get any of their money.

Oh god… he edited the original post to “Apologies to anyone offended by the cover.”  … Not “Apologies, I made a really gross and alienating statement.”  He does this in another post, as well trying to justify it all.   /facedesk

Wow, this is a perfect example of the creative blind spots I’ve been talking about. This comic was not intended to be satire. The OP completely missed the significance of having just a pair of boobs on a magazine cover and its effect on a female audience. In the OP’s own words: “In the original script I said there was a comic being held up without specifying what was on it, so Paul just drew a pair of breasts and I put the page up because at the time I saw nothing wrong with it, and when I put it on tumblr, the unfortunate implications never crossed my mind until they were pointed out to me.”
There was no sexist intent behind this comic (or clever expose of sexism), but this clearly illustrates how so much offensive content gets released in comics, games, and other media. It looks okay to the people making it.This is why we need women, PoC, and LGBT people in industries that are dominated by one POV. We need to start viewing content through more than one lens.I talk about it at length HERE.

(emphasis mine)
Complete and uncensored, the reason many people take issue with the comics world (and other media dominated by homogenous culture). Straight from the horse’s mouth, unintentionally.

Also, let’s be real. Yes, I have found a lot of great indie comics to read just by browsing for comics, specifically, but also by wanting to buy an artist’s prints and taking their card to see what else they do. You CANNOT win at a con only selling one thing, especially in a comic-con type atmosphere. You go to a comic con to celebrate the comics you read. The only con I’ve been to that would be kind to a couple of guys with a humorless booth marketing a humor comic is SPX, a convention TAILORED to indie comics. The other cons I’ve frequented (Otakon, BCC, and 221B Con, to be specific) were much more focused on fanart and crafts, and in fact I bought mostly prints at those venues. I mean, let’s face it — I’m way more willing to drop twenty bucks on a quality print of a character I already like than on an unknown comic that may or may not be a heap of sexist bullcrap.
