So, because Writers Block decided to hit me hard...:

Nex Ventus
I've decided to make the worst fanfic ever. And the reason I am coming here is because... Is it healthy to actively pursue making a truly horrendous fanfic?

I wouldn't say it was unhealthy, although writing something bad deliberately doesn't appeal to me. I actually prefer to take something generally considered to be bad and see if I can make it work. A well done parody is hard in itself, though, so good luck!

There's a trope for this.
This is a signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

[up] Well, there is a slight difference: Most troll fics go incognito, with the intention of trolling a fanbase; this, on the other hand, seems to be more an exercise in the most extreme Stylistic Suck, with no disguise put upon the ultimate intent.

I like it. Go for it.

I think that already exists. It's called My Immortal.

On a serious note... Done well, those kinds of fics can be hilarious in how bad they are. Just don't go too overkill though, because then that disintegrates any shreds of fun that could be had from reading a bad fic.

Put lots of intentional Narm into it:

Is strike-through allowed on the forums yet?

Yes. And be drunk while writing.

[up] I see what you did there! :-)

Polite smartass.
It could make for a good satire, if done right.

Yeah. No.

...And when something's been done THAT much, your chances of succeeding in doing it better than all those people when you have no experience in it are lottery-esque.

May I suggest you find another genre/medium to Stylistic Suck-ize?

So... just somethings I should tell you all...

first... I do NOT remember making this WHAT-SO-EVER. First time I've ever had a drink in my, eighteen—- Twenty-one years alive and most of last night is a complete blur. I am sorry for this.

Second... To the last poster, I have no intention to give up on my writing. Ever.

Third... I did not know of Troll Fics, nor Stylistic Suck. Just kinda proves I'm still a TV Tropes newbie.

Forth... Has anyone seen where I put my Dream Journal- er... a book that has a picture of a cat on it? An orange cat specifically?

All the books ever written aren't the same genre, though.

And anyone who seriously thought they could write the single greatest book in history would be stupid.

But I'm not saying the OP is stupid, of course. Badfic is nowhere near as large a category as books, and someone who's not an experienced internet writer probably wouldn't know It's Been Done so many times.

Unfortunately, you've got yourself a paradox. The worst fanfiction ever is going to be the worst fanfiction ever completely unintentionally. Because you intend to make the worst fanfic ever, you're going to go the way of the Producers.

Nexio, if you want to try, go ahead. writing parody is a time-honored tradition, and that's really what you'd be doing — parodying fanfic.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
