The books are already WRITTEN you talentless, leeching, nepotistic, insipit cunt. HOW FUCKING HARD is it to turn them into a script? It's not rocket scinence, you liberal women studies bachelor's monkey.

All they had to do was get a semi competent director and be faithful to the source material.

can't make any original story arcs in teh witcher's universe

Julian Foster

The worst is still ahead of us. There will be a point where literally nothing produced in any media is worth a damn because it's diversity before quality. But eventually there will be a backlash. People can only be fed shit for so long. Just feel like it might be at least another 10 years.

Evan Stewart

if they did this, assuming its an hour long show, we would get about 3 minutes of geralt per show. the books should have been called yennifer, ciri and some guy with a bum knee who complains about it a lot

Sebastian Butler

what did she mean by this?
Someone asked her on twitter how she copes with writers block so she replied with a string of tweets about a hypothetical situation. OP took one tweet out of context and now everyone in the thread’s sperging out over nothing

Gavin Parker
Gavin Parker

lol the creative part is by far the easiest. the polishing is the hard part that makes all the difference

how is writers block even a thing? do you need low intelligence to experience such things?

but yeah of course its a woman

Jace Gutierrez
Jace Gutierrez

worrying. you'd expect a professional and seasoned writer to not have these problems, or at least it not be this severe that she has to write it for the public to know about it.

Camden Wright
Camden Wright

Giving you a faithful adaptation was never the goal. Subverting each and every last bastion of white male culture is the goal. You really think giving one of the few video game franchises enjoyed by the "toxic" part of the gaming demographic to a female was a mistake? It's cultural genocide. The systematic erasure of all white art.

It's like she's setting up to deflect all the shit that comes at her.

Studio tells her to finish her shit, she can say she is being harassed for her mental block.
It comes out and everyone tells her it's shit, she can say she was suffering from depression when she wrote it.

Robert Reyes

i dont hate the books, its just Cred Forums led me to believe it was about a monster hunter dude going around and hunting monsters, when in reality, its him trying to find some 11 year old girl that got taken from him. i like them, just not what i expected. and dikstra is pretty cool, if i got the right guy, hes the spymaster right? there are about 200000 crazy names in these books, and they introduce a new 2 or 3 every chapter. dandilion and regis are by far the best characters though

Angel Gomez

Bentley Walker
Bentley Walker

It's just not her story. She should fall back. Step away from the computer. Never force it. Do some other activities. Meditate and clear your head to give room for new ideas. Or just go out and socialize and try not to think about it. Hopefully you'll experience something that will inspire a scene or a line of dialogue. Or just have fun with it, that way it's fun for the audience. Brainstorming is also key. Think before you write. Plot a course you are going to navigate so you know what beats to hit and when. When you finally come up with a scene, push it aside and come up with a way to do it better.
No excuses.
I agree.

Joseph Moore

Jeremiah Martin

Of course it's going to suck, they have a fucking woman writing the script. Geralt is about fucking bitches and killing monsters, she's going to turn him into a white knight cuck that gets dominated by femme fatales.

Owen Parker
Owen Parker

So much this.

Netflix should be sending someone to her house to immediately get and change all her social media passwords and from then on keep a fucking close eye on her work.

For a professional to announce to the world they are having this kind of trouble when so much other shit is already underway is not okay.

Cameron Powell

Colton Rodriguez

, Altered Carbon was created by woman for Netflix too, but it was her passion project she was trying to get done for 15 years

Altered Carbon was SJW propaganda. Every white male is either a villain or an idiot and gets murdered. Revoltingly ugly black girl is supposed to be ultra hot prostitute with kung-fu skills.

Brayden Miller

Luke Kelly
Luke Kelly

5 main saga books, 3 short story collections and a standalone novel. On top of the three games. Anyone who calls themselves a writer should be ashamed of themselves if they can't adapt any of that material.

Brandon Flores
Brandon Flores

90 percent of overcoming writers block is actually putting words on the paper. You need to write even if you won't keep much of the final product. Once you start writing and stop thinking about how to start you will get the ideas you need even if some needs to be rewritten or thrown out. Constant breaks and meditation are usually just procrastinating.

Logan Kelly
Logan Kelly

Did you read The Last Wish? That one is a collection of the short stories that mostly follows Geralt doing Witcher things.

Samuel Cox

ok, this was absolutely horrible
for me it was more of a dystopian scenario and warning of how terrible a world where all races are mixed would be

Oliver Lewis

you do the polishing after you are done with the creative, not at the same fucking time

you whet the sword after you have forged it, you dont fucking whet the ores while digging in the mine

Gavin Brown
Gavin Brown

Yea, but if you don't know the end result, how would you know what to include or omit. Before you start a scene you should know where the scene ends or your going to either go all over the place or in circles. You need to know what path you're eventually going to take because when the page is blank the number of routes to the final destination is limitless. She's a professional so I assume she has
actually put words on the paper
Starting is nothing new to a professional. She is obviously more concerned with the conclusion and how she is going to tie up all the things she would like to include in the script.
Constant breaks and meditation is usually just procrastinating.
So is sitting in front of a blank screen, worrying about what the next sentence is going to be. My point is to just relax. Mind, body, and soul. Find your focus, then write. If people think you're procrastinating, fuck them. They don't have to put their names under the title. Better to procrastinate and come up with something good than to just write whatever bullshit comes to mind.

Caleb Lewis
Caleb Lewis

I rarely get writer's block
What the fuck writer's block happens to everyone, if she doesn't get writer's block it's because she'll just slap anything on a page to pad the word count. Real writers choose every word with care, sometimes spending a day on single sequence. Why the fuck was she hired to do this?

Jayden Evans
Jayden Evans

What a retard. This is why people shouldn't be allowed to adapt ANYTHING if they don't even read the fucking source material. And if you're struggling to adapt something that's already written, than you shouldn't be writing it. Give the reins to someone with a combination of skill, and love for the material.

Fucking hacks.

Jace Wood

Never said they do. But the video games took this obscure polish fantasy series and introduced it to millions of eager /v/edditors. There would be no audience for this otherwise. How many other eastern european fantasy universes can you name?
more to the west than US and UK

Like everyone else pointed out, this seems awfully early to get writer's block. There's like 7 or 8 books worth of material and lore, and even the games can give inspiration for which direction you can take this setting and its characters. I thought the issue would've been trying to keep it down in the first season.
Granted I'm not a screen writer so maybe there's something I'm not getting, but this really does make me suspect she's not entirely in to the setting if this is already an issue.

writer's block isn't just about "what" to write, it's also "how" to write it, you're adapting the source material into a different medium that has it's own set of rules, if you were to just copy the books 1:1 you would end up with a long and horribly paced show that is mostly narration and exposition

Brody Bailey

How many respected male writer/directors have twitter accounts?
Lots but they're probably heavily curated and run by their publicists interns or some shit

you can post your non sequiturs all day, and you will still not make sense to anyone but yourself. are you mentally ill or autistic? have you ever really tried to communicate with anyone in a meaningful way, or do you just condescend constantly because you have such a low opinion of others?

She was asked for advice on how to deal with writer's block and she provided it. OP took one post of the reply and posted it out of context because he knows how easy you retards are to bait. She doesn't have writers block at all.

I think she really had no idea what she was in for. She probably was really eager to be the cool showrunner that interacts with the fandom they're inheriting and excited about adapting. She never anticipated a lot of bait posts and SJW crap coming up and that's like half of what gets tweeted at her now. Hopefully she learns how to ignore it. If she doesn't then bad things are in store.

Luke Thomas

Well they should just make that anyway, it would be better than babbys first political drama like the games. The only interesting thing about the Witcher is dredging up the lesser known folklore.

The difficulty is the first two books are a bunch of short stories that are only quasi-indepentent. The framing device of Geralt recovering from a recent hunt and recounting all these important character developing moments to a mute girl is kind of hard to make work in Netflix's usual format and I'm curious how they'll do it.

How is anyone even excited for this? Why even make a thread about it? Just act like it doesn't exist. I absolutely love the Witcher, but I realize that the series is done and was, for the most part, adapted perfectly into a videogame that was actually really good. I'm content, as I'm sure everyone else is, with the current state of witcher in media. I have fond memories of the books and the games and I would hate for them to be sullied by a mediocre series with actors that are imperfect for the role and dialogue and screenplay that is half assed.

there is absolutely no reason for this show to exist. how ANYONE who is a genuine fan of the witcher could want it to exist is beyond me

Yes. The books are not video game tie-ins. The first stories were written before the fall of the USSR. The games are sort of sequels that undo a bunch of shit that happened in the books.

So this writer Saprowski from the novels, is he involved in the games at all?
They consulted with him a tiny bit on the first one it was even his idea to just bring Geralt back, because he didn't give a shit. But other than that he wasn't involved. He was apparently slightly more involved here and felt positive about this show but he's also an angry old Polish drunk so who knows how long that will last.

Juan Morris

Nope, The Jewish narrative must put in the show. That's why the writer having a hard time to cram this shits in the witcher show without ruining it.

Different kind of shit earlier on. But yes, people will eat almost 100% shit for a long time if they were conditioned to it.

Not even close, just not as good as the first part of the season. And of that she mostly just wrote Elektra, who was good. The Hand stuff was established from the start and crap that had to be dealt with as part of their big dumb crossover build up.

He thought the game series was going to be trash and thinks all video games are like pac man or mario world. Hes extremely bitter about the games and talks a lot of shit about them and insinuates that CDPR owes him money because he sold them the rights for a single sum of money, instead of a royalty deal. Even though he refused the royalties and would only sell for cash up front.
He kind of sucks and the show would most likely be better off if he only has a small amount/no input

I'm not saying he didn't create an awesome world, but the short stories were what he was best at.

eurogamer.net/articles/2017-03-24-meeting-andrzej-0witcher
He thought games were stupid, had done ever since shooting Martians on an old console plugged into a TV. "OK let's play cards or let's drink vodka," he said back then, "but killing Martians is stupid. And my standpoint stands: it is stupid."
"I was stupid enough to sell them rights to the whole bunch," he says. "They offered me a percentage of their profits. I said, 'No, there will be no profit at all - give me all my money right now! The whole amount.'

This is from 2017, I guess he's a little less pissed now. There's been few times in other interviews he calls the games basically fanfiction and non cannon. He also constantly denies that his books are only popular at all outside Poland thanks to the games

Gavin White

Oh, I wish the TV series was just politics, rather than hunting. Do the books elaborating on differences in hunting, because the games are basically just 'use the right oil' and quick attack spam. Or delving into some of the crazier magics of the world would be nice, but that's not geralt's thing. And watching the lodge try to take over the world is again not geralt. So much of the world doesn't involve MC because he wants to get the fuck away from it, but Ciri is is tied to it.

I don't think this project will satisfy anyone, the books != games, so you can alienate one group if you follow the other. If you go original, you have to be very clear about that from the onset, but then borrowing too much from either annoys both groups. MotW makes politics annoyed etc. I enjoyed the games more for the world/politics/characters, not the monster hunting or endless camp clearing. Just an ill conceived adaption to ride on franchise name.
