But to see such utter disdain and contempt for what I love most, because it's furry, while pretty much all of furry visual art gets money and adulation is kind of a kick in the balls. It's hard to be a good writer. I work really hard at it, and I know a number of other people do too.
Even though, as I said, I sympathize with why people don't buy furry publications... I agree with this. And I don't even have balls, technically speaking.
People say things like "well, most furry writing is crap." Yeah, most of it is. So is most of everything. And there's a ton of crappy art on FA and everywhere else, too, but I don't see people lumping all of furry art together quality-wise. It's just easier to find the good art than it is to find the good writing, I suppose. But I'm still disappointed at how much more support good artists wind up getting in the fandom, compared to good writers. *shrug* But that's the way it is, and if anyone's got any ideas as to how to make things better...
