Hey, we all evolve into different things - I think Tony's found something he's passionate about and is pursuing to good response with his film/TV blogging and podcasting, and prose is something he and I are both looking to get back into after a long absence.

For me, I still enjoy the structure and unique storytelling language of scripts but I'm somewhat out of touch with current trends and practices so that's what I want to get back into. I want to run more screenwriting advice on here but first I need to refresh my own skills to make sure I'm not giving people advice that's five or more years behind the times.

it's true. it's good to do stuff that we are passionate about. as well as good with. starting to get back into things a lil bit. least so then don't go insane from work. which could very well happen

There's a good bit of advice from Neil Gaiman to apply here:

“Remember: when people tell you something’s wrong or doesn't work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.”

If people say they don't like a character, see if you can find out why. You can't help[ it if some people won't ever like certain types of characters, because others will and you can't let that kind of thing change your approach. But if their issue is something more tangible, like 'they have no role in the story' or 'their dialogue is too confusing' or 'they're too Mary Sue', that's when you can step back and take a second look. Maybe there's something you haven't observed before now about the character you can start to adjust?

The important point is YOU get to decide how you approach an issue with a character. Nobody else can tell you how to do that. They can make suggestions, but it has to be your call on the action taken.

Writer Chit 'n' Chat / How To Handle Someone Not Liking Your Character
« Last post by worldbreaker on Thu Jul 30 2015, 20:21 »
Ever had a situation where someone would say that they don't like your character for whatever reason? It happened to me on a few occasions. One of them being is back when I used to post at a Marvel RPG site and a fellow roleplayer there commented on how he didn't like the character I was roleplaying. the reason being was that he found the character boring. I was young back then, sixteen to be specific, so I wasn't as tolerant towards constructive criticism then as I am now.

Finding out that someone didn't like a character that you are writing is like finding out that someone doesn't like you. Sometimes you'd be like"Howcome that guy doesn't like my character?"

Some writers wish that their characters are perfect to the point that everyone will like em but it doesn't always work out that way. Just like in life, there will always be someone who doesn't like you, you'd have someone that doesn't like a character that you write. If the reason is constructive then it wouldn't hurt to examine the character and find a way to fix said character. If the reason is mean spirited then"F**** that guy" Don't let him bring you down.

If a person doesn't like your character then its not the end of the world. Don't let negativity derail you, move forward and continue building your story and the characters within. I say take the negativity and use it as a tool to help make you a stronger writer.

I think my days writing script fic are well and truly behind me now personally. I get much more satisfaction tinkering with prose & mainly film/TV writing, blogging & reviewing.

Say it ain't so Tony.

Think I'm just going to use City of Adventures as a template to making my very own web series than promoting it here. The question is what web making sites would be the right method in making one? Some say Wordpress but I've also heard some good things about Blogger. Which is what I'm using as a development site. What would you guys recommend?

Good golly gosh I need to write something again - scribbling in notebooks about the things I'm going to write does NOT constitute actual writing
It doesn't? NOW you tell me! :(
