So, yeah you're a good writer and all. you've sold god knows how many books and they've been made into movies blah blah.
but everyone has different tastes, and S.M. just happens to cater to those people!
I personally don't
enjoy your books.
But I love S.M.'s.
just because you don't like her writing doesn't mean she's bad. that's YOUR opinion.
who gave you the power to tell people if they're good or bad?
I say, it all lies in your ability to tell a story.
if you told a story, captured and warmed millions of hearts and sold a gut-busting number of books (and made into record breaking films), i'd say your story has to be pretty good. i think this power is what makes a good writer.
but that's just me. some people who write stuff that seems like incredibly boring drivel to me, may be a good writer to someone else.
if S.M. weren't at least a fairly good writer, her books would never sell and her stories would never have been told.
And don't compare JKR and SM.
SM never wanted to BE a writer, whereas i'm pretty sure JKR always had.
and JKR's writing is simply phenomenal.
and they also write DIFFERENT stories.
JKR chooses adventure, magic, friendship.
and SM chose romance.
totally different categories.
so it's not fair to say that SM can't write worth a darn.
because her books have their own different spell-binding appeal. the story draws you in, and it's not only pre-teen girls and mothers who enjoy these books.
her's is a story loved by millions of people.
and that's something you can't take away.
now i've said my piece.
off to bed now.
