I was just wondering, outside of the general struggles of being a writer, that people treat writers so badly. But like, why? I'm genuinely wondering why some should suffer for their art. Fanfiction writers have to deal with their communities being too small to be noticed as an accomplished writer to begin with. Then fiction writers who create things out of nothing seem to get no attention outside of critics and naysayers. I could go on and on about the pros and cons of both, but my angst is still unanswered. Why does the human population feel the need to critique everything in writing?
