I admit I am guilty of asking you about updating series and stuff. Seeing how it has frustrated you, to say the least, has me feeling ashamed. I apologize. I should know that people have stuff going on in their lives, I mean I can barely keep up with school, sleep, and time on the internet, so I shouldn't have pressured you like that. Especially since you have like 15 series running right now. Anyway, once again, I'm sorry and I won't do it again to you or anyone else.
It’s alright, thanking for owning up to it and not doing it again! I feel like I should explain more what it’s like from a writer’s point of view because it’s understandable that some people just don’t understand.
For starters, writers do this because we feel the need to share our work. We don’t…we don’t necessarily profit from this like we do from jobs. Writing is not our job, but we still come on here because we’re motivated and as I said before, we feel the need to share. Most of us have full time jobs or we go to school. Fortunately, I’m still in school but I’ve been applying for jobs.
As a writer who updates quite frequently, all I ask for is a certain amount of notes. I try to stay on top of it but there’s been times where it was a day after one of my series hit the note requirement and like…people say ‘no pressure’ but it still pressures us. That’s like saying “no offence…” because most likely what you’re about to say is offensive.
The main point is….we don’t really profit from this, we use our own free time (in my case, instead of homework and learning Korean) to write. I, personally, have suffered from my grades lowering because I’m writing so much…3k word parts take so much longer than people realize lol.
We’re here trying to make people happy (or not so much in my case). We want people to enjoy our works but once people demand things from you, it kinda takes away from the fun of what we like to do. This isn’t a career as of right now, it’s a hobby.
I’m glad that now you understand and I’m sure there’s plenty of people who still will do this to me and other writers even though we’ve politely asked multiple times…shit happens my dude, shit happens.
I hope you have a good day and happy reading :D
