not for the first time in my career, i am entirely thankful that my time and experience in writing fanfiction taught me so much about delivering constructive criticism.

odd to think that years of writing magic, bullshit, and dicks developed a skill i'm now using to fire someone, but you know, life is weird, she moves in mysterious ways.

Oooooooo. Sorry you have to fire someone. Dealing with that kind of situation and wrting that sort of thing is tough.

But as for everything else you said, so much truth. I wanna slap 1997!me, who used to believe that "fanfic is stupid and a waste of time" because that brat had no clue how much /more/ she could have learned had she jumped into fanfic back then. Fanfic writing, betaing & concrit, co-writing, receiving unsolicited crits, all of it. So much education for free about more than just merely writing crack stories about dicks, magic, and embarrassed Basch.

Firing people is *the worst* -- I only had to do it once, and even though it was 100% the right thing for everyone, it was awful. I hope it goes/went as well as possible under the circumstances.

Totally agreed on the value of learning how to give and accept criticism as a valuable lesson from being in fandom. I also credited fandom with helping me learn how to participate in and manage group projects.
