I’m WRITING. I like the story I’m writing so much that I’ve actually plotted out where the story is going and what scenes I have left to write, with actual notes. I do not normally do this. I write in one of two ways: I either dive straight in with a vague idea and see what happens, or I write it in my head for a few days then I put it down on paper. I never make notes and if my stories turn out to have a decent structure it’s just luck (or good beta-ing).
Blaming the racism in fandom on the racism inherent in the television shows you watch is not an argument I have much time for. They’re two different problems--not mutually exclusive I’ll grant you--but you don’t get a get-out-of-jail free card if there’s possibly-racist content in your fic just because there’s possibly-racist content in the source material.
And now for something more light-hearted.
WHICH TYPE ARE YOU? I really want to know. (I am the first type.)
