Don’t Hate Authors Part One

Sunny, why this? Because I am tired of people believing that an author stole a famous author/movie idea. Like the Eragon by Christoper Paolini debate. Did he copy and paste The Lord of the Rings? No. So he didn’t steal it. He was inspired by Tolkien. Like I am inspired by Tolkien, doesn’t mean I am going to copy and paste it. Good grief, people.

Mini Review of Eragon: Epic story because my favorite mystical creature is the dragon is in it. Take How to Train your Dragon, Dragonheart, and Tolkien and combined them together. I don’t understand the hate towards this book. Yes, the author uses elves and dwarves. I just don’t understand it all. It’s not like he completely copied and pasted the story and just changed some of the locations’ names and characters’. You can see the elements of Tolkien in it but some people. Other than that, I plan on reading the next book in the series.

Writers get inspired by stories but they have a unique writing process. Like right now, I noticed one of my stories may have been inspired by The Clerk’s Prologue/Tale in The Canterbury Tales. I am not copying the characters/plot. No. If anything, writers are writing clichés. Don’t point out the famous author’s names in your review, if you are going to hate on a writer.

Writers work on their projects for days, months, and years maybe. And next thing you know, you hate on their book. Sure, you can point out the true audience for that certain book such as rating the violence, romance, or etc. I do that. I am not hating the author. I am just pointing things for when a younger reader decides to read it. Aka safety warnings, nothing more. Nothing else.

Next time, you review a book. Rate the violence, language, and romance. Not rate how an author copied a popular idea. Please. Less hate. Readers are to support authors not to create graves for them.

Thanks for reading!

 

What not to write/read

Greetings, fellow writers, and bookworms. I give you things that you shouldn’t write/read. These are opinions are mine and are based on my Christian faith.

 

Lets me start by pushing a very common trend in books today and like forever. The need to discuss inappropriate scenes. What is the matter with people today? Nobody should read scenes with so much unbecoming behavior. Especially if teens or younger are reading it. Umm, no.  Or if the chapters of the books feel it necessary to describe every little detail. I am pointing at you, popular young adult books.

Next up is the profanity in books everywhere. Recently I have been reading Christian fiction trying my best to avoid this. But in today’s books its hard not to find a book with no language in it. Why do people find it necessary to write, read, or say it? Just saying. The world would be a lot better if we zipped our mouths.

 

The belief that writing an abusing relationship is good somehow. Like why is that good? Hmm. Those books give off a negative side that influences the younger audience. Showcasing that an abusive relationship is good. And sure, its fictional but books influence people.

Then there are books’ themes that are either depression or suicidal thoughts and basing it off as a positive theme. I am pointing at movie producers/writers right now. Let’s make books that have these issues so people think it’s a good thing that people should kill themselves.  Or have people start hating themselves causing self-abuse or eating disorders. Like why do you think that is good? Can we not write like that? Sure we could share those problems with the world but we could at least show a disclaimer in the summary of the books. The right way to write this: Show people the negative sides of this. The reasons why you should love yourself. The reason why you shouldn’t follow the world’s standards in life. That would be a start, people.

That wraps up today’s post up. Hope you enjoyed. Please comment down below, what people shouldn’t read/write it.
