Zasulich’s Guide to “Making It” as a writer

June 22, 2011

How you know you’ve made it: fan art, slash fiction, hate mail

  • Rule 1: you can’t write the slash fiction yourself
  • Rule 2 : you can’t do the fan art yourself
  • Rule 3 : writing yourself hate mail is okay. You really do need to work on some stuff. And you probably ARE “a gay”

    I wrote the ‘hate letters’ for the first two issues of Gupter! There’s no hate like self-hate!

    I have received genuine hate mail.

    Nobody has written slashfic about me I don’t think.

    I once had a boy at school write complex classical music dedicated to me does that count as fan art?

      We ran this by the committee. You are a borderline case. We will reconsider your application after you create fictional characters who can have sex with other fictional characters.

    Have you made it when you get published by Zizek Press? Do you have to send them hate mail/slashfic/fan art in order to achieve this?

    does the slashfic have to include members of Zizek Press?
