After a night of "Kitchen Nightmares" playing behind me, I had this funny (and totally impractical) thought of what'd happen if you applied that kind of thing to writing and roleplaying. You could have the host visit struggling writers and try to turn their work around. Encourage new ways of thinking, suggest methods of getting around cliches, plant ideas.

I can hear it now:

"Your grammar is atrocious! Do you even READ your writing?"

"I've met department store mannequins with more engaging personalities than this character."

"First thing we're gonna get rid of: the lists. No one needs to know your muse's measurements and all their little details, ticked off one by one. It's boring, it's kind of creepy, and usually an indication that a character needs more work."

"Let's face it. Your writing is good, but your roleplay partners are dragging down your game. Something's gotta go."

"Hey, don't knock fanfiction. There are some very good writers who write fanfiction. Which is more than what can be said for you."

"You know the quickest way to spot a Mary Sue? They're always the ones that sigh loudly in the corner and then immediately tell you what a tragic backstory they have."

"You need to READ more, dammit. Something classic. Shakespeare! Arthur Conan Doyle! Jane Austen! Dashiell Hammett! Something that is not Christopher Paolini!"


[I shouldn't have to say this, but since I got worried messages last time I posted something like this, I feel I should mention that I am not specifically calling anyone out; these are merely examples, written for the fun of it.]
