Ugly sweater verse just got me through one of the hardest weeks of my life <3 thank you for that!!

Sometimes when you spend a year writing one work of fanfiction and you still haven’t written anything of merit in the eyes of the rest of the world, haven’t published a book or written for a paper, anything like that, you start to wonder why you’re still writing fanfiction. You wonder what the point is, y’know? Why put so much time into something that has no apparent “real world” value?

Messages like this are what make writing, even just silly stories for strangers on the internet, worthwhile. Messages like this make me feel important.

So thank you for sharing this with me. I’m sorry you’re having such a hard time. I’m glad my words could help you, though, and I hope next week is much better.
