Ever notice how it’s the biggest fucking hacks that claim that criticism is only useful when filed by a close associate whose undergone at least one background check and drug screening and submitted their criticism in the form of a 13 layered compliment cake?

They'd be more aggravating if they weren't so predictable.
Chucky has a huge block list and probably uses shared lists too yet all the mean, harassing people and posts he doesn’t want to read still come through. Then he bitches and moans about them publicly vs just ignoring them and continue writing shit books for mediocre paychecks. It’s because he as Jessica Price’s mental disease and feels compelled to respond like a child.

If you think everyone around you is an asshole, maybe it’s not them. Maybe it’s you, Chucky.

Looks like someone wants to challenge Chuck Wendig for the title of worst SW author.

I initially thought this was written by Chuck.

The whole present tense thing is, for reasons unknown to me, wildly popular in Young Adult fiction, to the point that a lot of younger readers are turned off by more traditional past tense narratives.
My uneducated guess is that it sprang up from the success of The Hunger Games, which is written in present tense and (I thought) actually made it work most of the time, considering the type of story it's telling. I'm sure there's other books that helped inspire it, but that's the one I know about.

For people like Wendig, they think the sense of urgency and immediacy it provides will mask their dullness, though. And they are incorrect.

The problem is that constant energy in the story pace doesn't work to keep you hooked unless what the energy is applied to is interesting to read.

I've seen samples of his work, he blows a lot of energy on setting up scenes but little on executing them, which is not interesting and is the literary equivalent of watching a giant bomb's fuse go off and getting a faint puff of smoke instead of a massive explosion afterwards.

...this explains so much about how he got picked for Disney Wars.

Someone used the term 'getting laid' in a Star Wars book?

Imagine if at the end of Ol' Yeller, they didn't shoot the dog. They just let him run around being a dangerous, gibbering Cujo and hurting the people who once loved him. After a while, he slowly succumbs to the sickness, dying in agony on the porch of his former family, drawn back by a niggling memory of love that the dog was no longer capable of feeling. As Ol' Yeller drowns in his own diseased foam, his family huddles away in the darkest corner of their house, too horrified at the monster their dog had become to recall the friend he once was.

Draw your own comparisons with the Star Wars franchise.

So let me see if I understand this:
Golden Bikinis and Hot Girls: No Way
Jedi having their own Catamites: A-Ok!

I guess Qui-Gon really DID explore Obi-Wan's outer rim.
Highly offtopic rant incoming:
I highly doubt this Rule 63 Cuck Wending knows this, but the Japanese Samurai (Which is what the Jedi was based on) did have their own variation of Catamites. However even if Rule 63 Cuck Wendig knew this, she still got it wrong because
A) The reason for Samurai Catamites was to have a closer bond between the Master and Apprentice (So it was not just getting laid for the hell of it)
B) It was done away with towards the modern era
C) Most Samurai wouldn't go around talking about it or making it sound like casual sex.

I have a feeling Rule 63 Cuck Wendig wrote this to try to get the crowd who writes War and Peace length stories about Dean Winchester getting John Watson pregnant. If Jedi aren't allowed to fall in love, there is no need for them to have Catamites.

Recall Chuck Wending was making his bones as a writer for White Wolf in the early oughts, when the prequel trilogy was going full force. Recall also that the interwebs were beginning to kick into high gear. Recall images like this one were all over the place back then.

Chuck's garbage is just the fruition of many years of horrifying crap, finally infecting the franchise itself rather than the fringes of fan nuttery.

Chappelle show once did a sketch on that https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2ecx6q

Also "getting laid?" god does that sound completely un-star wars.

While I can't say where it started exactly, from what I understand a lot of workshops and writing circles advise writing in present tense because it supposedly gets the reader more "in the moment" if the text is phrased as though the events are happening at the exact moment the viewer is reading it as supposed as to some vague unspecified past that's been documented, and thus is a more engaging or "dynmaic" read.

Personally I think it's a load of hogwash and it doesn't matter all that much what tense is written in so long as it's written well. Although it's a little funny when talking about it in the context of Star Wars considering the opening line has always been "a long time ago" i.e. in the past tense.

Didn't see the rambling posted but Chuck's been losing his mind over the Sonic movie because they're tweaking the design. He really dislikes the idea of creators changing their work because of the fans and then insults people who do that as feeding into fan entitlement which makes writing worse for other people.

Is that what this is about? It felt more like a Game of Thrones meltdown.

Fans not only have a voice and a vote, they have a fucking veto and it's called their money.

You'd think this shit-eating cuck would have figured this out and that maybe there's a reason he no longer gets to gnaw on the corpse of Star Wars like a nasty little maggot of a man.
