i-should-just-work-out

anonymous asked:

Being a writer who gets no kudos, likes or reblogs, it's hard to believe all these positive "your work matters" posts. It feels more like "You suck and no one likes or cares about your work."

I’m assuming you’re sending me this in reference to this post.

The post, as I understood it, was meant to be encouraging for people who struggle with feeling like their work isn’t worth the effort. I reblogged it partially for myself, because I rarely find my work making rec lists and other stuff. I won’t lie, that bums me out because I work really hard on what I write, just like everyone else. Sometimes it feels unfair that some fics are way more popular than I think mine will ever be. But I’ve only been here for a year, and I like to think that that means someone will read my stories someday.

I also like to think that if one person can read one of my stories and feel impacted by it, then the effort is worth it. Even if the story is not shared, liked, or given kudos, the thought that one person might smile because they like my gay stuff is exciting. I reblogged the post to remind myself of that personal motto. I wanted to give myself the reminder that even the smallest of audiences can take something away and have their own private reactions. 

Someone really loves your work anon, even if they struggle to show it. 

lol let me never try to open people’s eyes to peer reviewed scientific studies on facebook ever again. like, if ya wanna fuck with pseudoscience be my fucking guest. but damn all these ppl wanna be woke but don’t wanna do any research, jeez.

Do you think it would be horrible to write a short story collection or short story books and get it published while i organize and work on my bigger books. Or should i just work on my novel and get those out?

I think it would be great. Whatever you can publish that puts your name out there shows credibility and helps building a loyal legion of readers! Short stories, blogs, collections…go for it!

Like my advice?

I love Taylor but I'm to the point where if this relationship doesn't work out for her then I think she should just stay single for a while. It creates less drama and gives people less to talk about.

I don’t think she should “have to stay single” just bc the public can’t stop gossiping about her personal life……….

That wouldn’t be horrible at all!

That would actually make more sense, objectively, to go ahead and publish your shorter work while perfecting your long term work.
