hello your writing is really beautiful n you are such a great writer! I recently posted my first fic but the notes were kinda low and I honestly am just doing this because I love writing so I want to get more ppl to read my the fic that I worked hard on. I was just wondering if u cld share with me how many notes u had gotten on ur first fic when it was released (u dun hv to if this is too personal) or any tips for new writers on how to get their work out there? tysm
hello! thank you so much for the kind words!!! For my first fic, I had about 40 notes i think…maybe even less than that lol i can’t really remember but I remember being elated when I hit 30 haha. tbh I still am even to this day super happy when I hit 30.
First off, I want to say that tumblr is an odd place. Sometimes super well written fics with great vocab & an amazing plot line & etc etc etc barely get any notes while others that are in my opinion, not so well written with misspelled words, bad grammar and etc etc etc get a ton of notes so I wouldn’t worry about notes that much. Also there are a ton of silent readers. A TON. come on peeps show the fic some love if you liked it! I know when I first started reading I didn’t leave a like either lol bc… idk I just didn’t do it until I saw a post that explained how important feedback is. I mean I feel it even more so now that I write haha.
ok anyway, i’m going to put the rest of my answer under the break bc it’s pretty long and I don’t wanna clog people’s dash, sorry!
