Writers Hilariously Roast Bad Pieces Of “Harsh Writing Advice” (27 Tweets)

It only takes one bad opinion on Twitter to launch a mean-spirited but funny meme. Sadly, if you’re on Twitter, you will one day be ratio’d. (“Ratio’d” is when there are more (usually snarky) replies to your tweet than RTs and Faves, Mom.). Hopefully, though, when that day comes, you’ll take it in stride.

A since-deleted tweet giving people “Harsh Writing Advice” claimed that if you’re a writer, your fellow writers should be seen as competition, plain and simple. On the one hand, this perfectly sums up how to make it in any capitalist industry that requires standing out, finding a niche, and conquering your opponents who you want to “beat” through making more money than they do. On the other hand, it makes art into something akin to sports and will suck you into a vortex of envy that only depressed characters in Russian novels experience.


Frankly, “Harsh Writing Advice” that can end with “just saying!” or “sorry, not sorry!” is almost always bad. Fortunately, every single writer on Twitter immediately mocked and dismissed this idea, and in the process wrote their own funny advice.

Here’s the sincere (but bad) post where it all started:

It’s been an odd few years for writers. That one tweet wasn’t the only trend that sucked. As my friend and writer Lincoln Michel writes here, not everything you read about writing is a stratagem you should take to heart. You’ll go insane if you listen to everyone.
