Give me reasons
I was happy to start writing again and eventually share but as time goes by, I feel I should stop (even deleted some links I shared on FB because there is not point in sharing my stuff – my current thoughts actually). Why should I keep writing about characters people already wrote about and so much better than I could ever do. Yeah “keep doing what you like” but what is the use of going on if you don’t share your work? I feel lost.
There are so many amazing fanfic writers whose stories are stunning, creative and well written. Think I had an idea and start writing about it? Yay, good! Only to discover that someone had the same idea and wrote/posted their text… Scared of being accused of plagiarism/harassed.
I’m not a writer – never will be – but I now understand the feeling of some writers. So…
What is the use of going on then?
What is the use of going on when your work remains unnoticed?
What is the use of going on when you don’t know if your story/wording is good or crappy?
I miss the point here.
