The first page of this thread is truly formidable.

EDIT:
I disagree entirely.

Hey capn, is there any place I can get the whole rant in one word document or something? Just something I could print out easily.

A while back I took the liberty of compiling cap's essay into one document. I even added appendices in case the webpages ever stopped working. Here's a download link of the PDF I just converted the original word document to.

As I've said before, I'm no fan.

That was one long Capn'.

Here's something truly hilarious i found on Cracked... Matches the theme of this thread.

There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand Binary, and those who don't. Now 1/4th a Computer Scientist (or Computer Science Engineer, depending on my mood), i can safely say i fall into the first category.

capnnerefir wrote: A story is not just words on paper. It is not just the will and imagination of the author; not if it is a good story anyway. Perhaps it begins that way, but there is a point at which it becomes a real thing. Characters become real; if not in fact than in function. Characters (at least real, developed characters) have their own thoughts and opinions that may (and often do and should) deviate from those of the authors. I do not agree with every decision my characters make, but it is no longer in my hands.

The mark of a good author is a lack of control over his own work. The story becomes the domain of the characters, with the author having very little to do with it at all. The authors purpose becomes only that of recording the characters actions, not in controlling them.
This must be the manifesto of a true artist. Infact, I like it so much that I think I'll make you a present just for that. Bravo, Captain.
