Evil Author Day

From IndieWeb

Evil Author Day is celebrated on February 15th as a time to post unfinished drafts. It originated in the fanfiction community but was suggested in a post by Sara Jakša as an alternative to dealing with draft posts than Delete Your Drafts Day.


Sara Jakša notes that posting drafts is a way to overcome perfectionism and fear when writing, allowing others to enjoy creations, even if unfinished.

This allows the people to still partake in the joy of creation, even if it was not finished. It also allows the authors to not have to deal with perfectionism or with the guilt of why they are no longer interested in it. 2024-03-15

Why not

Evil Author Day can be celebrated alongside Delete Your Drafts Day if an author determines a draft is not worth publishing.
