TheMarySue Casually Smears Romance (REBLOG Heidi Cullinan)

Craft of Writing Admin

Heidi Cullinan nails The Mary Sue for a lazy, unresearched, hetero-only smear piece on romance writing. Not sure how I missed it, because it is good reading! It reminds me all too-vividly of the piece I protested in Canada’s National Post for Valentine’s Day about how surprisingly hard it was to make money writing a romance novel when they’re so cheap and bad. Confess This: Envy and Loathing Get You Nothing. Do click through to Heidi’s blog because she has resources and research, plus appendices, all things of beauty. The next time someone insults your readers you know where to go!
