General info: if you see a post tagged #NEISvoid, this means No End In Sight void. It means the post is from someone with a chronic illness or disability that isn't going away. They're venting or seeking to connect with other people who also exist in this void.
Avoid responding to these posts with unsollicited advice or generic 'get well soon' messages - I know you mean well, but we know more about our conditions than you and the tag tells you that we're not gonna get well soon.
What's the worst #writing advice you've ever gotten?
In university I once went home in tears because a prof I had, who was a published author, told us that "real" writers have just an insatiable need to write all the time, and if you didn't feel a deep, constant need to write maybe you just weren't a "real" writer.
Now that I'm an adult and I talk to other writers, every "real" writer I know is a procrastinating train wreck that prays for the sweet release of death like 90% of the time they spend writing.
So like... idk about that one, prof.
