I am a writer,
I am God,
I am Satan.
I am a writer,
I am a mother,
I am a murderer,
I am insane.

I am a writer,
I do what I want,
Your opinion means nothing,
It’s my world only.
I am a writer,
So what if I killed him,
He’s not even real,
Get a life.

I am a writer,
I have my own ideas,
I have an opinion.
I won’t turn my stories in to crap,
So you’ll enjoy them.
I won’t put your ideas in my novel,
So you can feel special.
I am a writer,
This is my story,
Write your own.
Written for the contest belonging to: anothercontestgroup.deviantart…
I know this may not be 100% clear, so basically the thing that inspires me to write freedom. I don't have to use people's ideas if I don't want to and the worlds I create are mine alone, this poem says that, only in a poetic way.

ERGH! You have no idea how much this hits home for me! (Well, being a writer, you probably do :giggle:)

So many times, I've had people on my back saying "Oh, can you put my OC in this story?" "I think you shoudl do this," "Oh no, MY OC is soooo much better, I'll send you the info, my OC NEEDS to be in this fic..."

newsflash: I am not here to please you! Pleasing everyone is pointless! Go and get a life!!

*fume* sorry for the rant, thank you for this :nod:

Its okay, I feel the same way. It annoys me when people think that I'd love to turn there ideas into a story for free, or ruin a current story I worked hard on with some crappy idea.

Exactly! And I get that some people feel they 'can't' write, but honestly, give it a go yourself, y'know? I think they'd be surprised

I must say, writing what you feel and telling the world that you don't care, is a very inspiring and amazing. Keep it up, and don't let others tell YOU who you should be, because I see that you know very well, who you want to be, in this life :) Good job.

I've always hated these passive-aggressive stories about what it means to be a creator. It's like saying 'I am a master and I can't take any alternate opinions or criticisms!'. I'm certain that wasn't the intention, I get it's more aggression to people forcing their ideas down you because you're a creator, but it always sounds so high and mighty it's painful to listen to. It's more groan worthy to listen to writers call themselves 'God', I'm more for the thought that writing is a flow; Characters are God's of their lives, sort of concept.
None of my personal opinions on writing is really criticism to your poem, though. My issue with this poem is even more petty, haha. I just find it needlessly repetitive and vague. It's not personal, it feels like anyone's thrown away idea, actually. I also feel it's too forward, it doesn't have any sense of leading on. You're just telling.
In many ways, I can respect the attitude of "I won't change for anyone," but in many more ways I support a less stubborn approach to creating. I empathize with your frustration, not so much this poem.
(Although, on a side note, the "Get a life" line made me giggle. People take fictional deaths way too personally, huh?)

Thanks, and it fine if you think my poem is too repetitive, everyone is entitled to an opinion here. I just wrote this as sort of a rant about how I hate when people tell me how to write my stories.
