a rant about pretentious male writing

I came across a rant i went on in an IM conversation a few months back.

 

he writes like he is trying to be a less aggressive Bukowski
Every troubled young man tries to write like fucking Bukowski these days
“In THIS format, my faults will be praised as “gritty” and “honest”
ugh. fucking addicts
thats all they can talk about
whats the point of doing all this to live your life if the most daring and creative aspects of your life are still connected to the substance?
“when i found her almost od-ed in the bathroom floor”
So this protagonist will find solace in another equally fucked up being
“Fade to black. Fin”
*rolls eyes*
