- Someone: Are you ok?
- Me: I'm fine
- Me(internally): It just really bothers me that fan artists get so much more respect than fanfiction writers. Like it's crazy that these two art forms aren't seen as equal. People just think that everyone can write but to make an actually good story you have to work really hard. Writers slave over every piece of work we make. They have mental breakdowns just trying to get this one sentence right. But still a lot of times they're just seen as a joke. Not trying to downplay how amazing artists are because honestly they are amazing and I can't even fathom what it's like to actually be able to draw because that's amazing. But people need to understand that it's also difficult to write. Also it's just accepted that artists should be paid for their work, which they should, but writers are expected to just constantly write for free. I know that most of them don't mind because they enjoy writing but I feel like they should be compensated for their time and efforts. Writers are out there writing like full length novels and I feel like it's taken for granted that you have access to all of that hard work for free.
My birthday is coming up and I really really love your drawings of Bokuto. If you're not too busy, could you make my day with a Bokuto drawing? Thank you!
