Ask them what they’re writing about.

Tell them that their characters need more physical descriptions because apparently you’re too lazy to use your imagination.

Say that their writing reminds you of Twilight.

Tell them that their typing is distracting you from your T.V. watching.

Now turn on the T.V. REALLY loudly.

Call them an awful person for killing off one of their characters.

Whine about how you didn’t like the ending because “OMG how could you???”

Get mad at them for writing instead of doing something productive.

Rant about how much you hate your English teacher for forcing you to read.

Always use improper grammar and never punctuate your sentences.

Never. Use. Paragraphs.

Ask them, “What’s so great about writing, anyway?”

Then ask them why they want “to be” a writer, like that’s actually something you can achieve.

Call all writers antisocial, depressed, weirdos. Because, of course, all of them are!

Remind them of how books are a dying species.

Share this joke with them:
“What’s the difference between a writer and a park bench? A park bench can support a family.”

Now laugh about your clever little joke while they try not to strangle you.

Claim that writing isn’t a form of art.

                                   
                                                  Now go do it. I dare you.
This isn't in any way meant to be taken seriously. These are just things that personally annoy me as a writer, and I'm interested to hear what other people think about these things. :)

EDIT: Wow. I am still in shock that this got so many views. I loved reading all of your comments and opinions, and I greatly appreciate everyone who read this! :tighthug: 
Anyway, thanks again, and have a nice day! Or night. :)

OMG, if anyone even one of the those things, they'll found themselves in deep, deep doodoo. And if anyone dared compare my writing to Twilight, well, that's an insult that won't go unpunished--watch out, angry writer coming through!Rage

Only the Twilight thing bothers me.
I can make a comeback for everything else! BUT I HATE TWILIGHT SO MUCH! I HATE IT WITH A PASSION!

Hahaha we're on the same page then! :)

My friend told me that a short romance story I wrote reminded her of Twilight (it was NOTHING like Twilight), and so I told my creative writing teacher that and then he completely disagreed with her.  Devilish

I've been on the receiving end to almost all of these. Thankfully, over time it has been just made me to work harder on things and try to prove them wrong.
Awesome list tho, really funny~ :3

Good for you! It's best to not let little comments stop you from doing something you like. :)

Thank you! :hug:

Very funny.  You really get under the skin of a writer, although being one probably helps;D Can I say this to you?
