Kiss my ass.

Okay, really the collective ass, but whatevs it doesn't read as well.

So. Anyway. I've been noticing a more than usual amount of 'you have to help me with this,' where 'this' is anywhere from a vague potential idea to like a 300-page manuscript (which, btw, that's a good 100+ minutes of my time and probably like 200+ of someone else's).

NOBODY "HAS" TO DO ANYTHING FOR YOU.

Or do they?

Is there some part of being in a community that obligates people to help each other out? Is it shifted because writing is way more time-consuming to critique?

And how much groveling is needed? I mean, a lack of self-respect is a terrible thing, and at some point I'm thinking it slips into that realm.


I think it's pretty obvious what side I'm on but I'm inviting you to change my mind.

PS. If you try claim age is a reason why anyone should give an extra shit, -150000.

Saving the planet doesn't require helping a single person, though o:

I'm not much for spoon feeding someone their storyline but if they have at least an outline and just want to know how it can be improved or what could be added then i might try and help

No one is obligated to help ANYBODY, but it's the kind thing to do, to help someone out of the goodness of your heart. I don't believe that you should write their story for them, but if somebody asks for help, then by god, you should help them! It surprise me how many un-giving people there are here. Why must we be like? Why can't we spend our time giving? What better things are there to possibly do then giving to others? I certainly can't think of any.
