I am watching these I don’t even care
It took me longer, I think, than most fans to fall in the love with the Sherlock series. I liked it, but didn’t love it as much as others I knew. Now I think part of my problem was that I watching episodes in pieces instead of all at once (each episode is an hour and a half). Today, I love it, and here’s my review.
Who is it For?
Then, there’s the humor. We get to watch the day-to-day or case-to-case humor of solving crimes with a genius sociopath, someone who keeps body parts in the refrigerator and shows up to Buckingham Palace in nothing but a sheet. We get to see Sherlock with his parents, who are utterly “ordinary” and hear him bicker with his brother about who is more brilliant and even see him and Watson try to solve a case while drunk after Watson’s bachelor party. We get the funny one-liners along with the run-on jokes of people assuming he and Watson are gay (because Sherlock is antisocial and for the first time has someone, a man, living with him).
Many writers, at some point or another, have been closet writers—they don’t tell anyone they write, that they want to write, or that they are actually writing. If you find yourself in this situation, you’re normal.
Writing can be very personal, like our story and characters are our own children. Or maybe you’re a closet writer because you fear what others will think about you if they saw what you wrote, or because you fear you aren’t good enough. Or maybe, you’re just not ready to share your work yet.
Some of the best writers have been closet writers, and there are wonderful perks to being one.
So here is a toast to closet writers.
Successful Closet Writers
New York Times bestselling author David Farland admits to being a closet writer as a teenager. He’d hide his manuscript, fearing someone would find it. Now he has over 50 books in print (several of which have won awards), has worked in the movie and video game businesses, and is also a writing instructor.
But there are different levels of being a closet writer. Perhaps you aren’t a full-fledged one.
While I don’t know if Rowling actually kept the fact she wrote a secret, she kept what she was writing secret. She never even told her mother about Harry Potter. And even after publication, she was still somewhat of a closet writer: she showed no one her manuscripts. The first person to read them was her editor.
The Perks of being a Closet Writer
If you are a closet writer, you have something beautiful.
As a closet writer, you can write what you want without pressure. It’s your story. It’s your world. No one else’s. People aren’t bugging you about what you are writing, asking personal questions about writing, or asking “When’s that book of yours going to be on the shelves?” You can set your own pace. If you want, you can write entirely for yourself and forget all about the audience. You can forget about marketing and pitching to a publisher. You can write whatever you want, however you want.
Outlets for a Closet Writer’s Writings (Or the Writing Hobbyist)
If you’re a closet writer or a hobby writer, and you still want readers, but without the professional pressure, you can upload your novel, chapter by chapter, onto a social writing site.
and, if you’re a closet fanfiction writer, many of these sites allow fanfiction, but you can also try FanFiction.net
Note, however, that I don’t recommend doing this if you actually want to take that same book to a traditional publisher. But if writing is more casual for you, these sites can be great. I know because I spent a lot of time on one of them as a teenager.
I recommend using a pen name like Wayne Hardy or some cool username like CloakWolfThirty, so, if you ever do decide to actually go serious with writing, people (and pros) won’t google you and find all your interactions and stories uploaded there. I’m sure some people would argue against my advice, but that’s just mine. The stuff I uploaded as a teenager was pretty craptastic in some ways (I can see now). I don’t want to be “known” for it.
Here are the perks of these sites: you can get readers and feedback (and from people you don’t know personally). It feels good to have someone eager to read the next chapter of your story. And if you aren’t a pro writer, don’t sweat it. Most of the people on there aren’t. If you are, you’ll find praise. Some of these sites even hold writing contests.

I would like to talk about something that is a huge problem In the world these days. Insulting people on the internet, see it wasn’t every funny and your not cool for doing it and there’s really no point to it at all! The result is teenager’s killing them selves, sure we could go on and on about..
My follower asked me to reblog this because it’s pretty important to him. I hesitated because the title had the f-word, and I’m not really into f-words, but the message had a good point, so here it is. I hope you don’t mind I revamped the title.
I have to agree that insulting anyone is kind of a problem, and that we need to avoid cyber-bullying.

If you want to be great at writing, you have to do more than just write. You have to develop an “eye” for it. If you aren’t developing an eye for it, you’re not progressing very far. You can’t become a better storyteller if you can’t see how to. Right?
Your writing eye should always be ahead of your writing abilities. Read that sentence again: Your writing eye should always be ahead of your writing abilities. Why? Because that’s how you learn and grow as a writer! If your eye is always ahead of your abilities, you always have something to strive for. If it’s not, you can’t improve your storytelling abilities.
Whether you’re a beginning writer or a seasoned one, there is always more to learn.
Here are three ways to strengthen your eye for writing.
- Read books, blogs, or listen to podcasts on writing from professionals.
- Read and watch fiction, not just as an audience member, but as a writer. Pull the story apart and see how its parts are working together. Look at how the writer created the story.
- Get personal guidance and direction on your writing. Have a professional, a writing instructor, or a peer critique your work. Let them tell you what you can improve on.
Patience is often a cure for frustration.
