This is My Psychosis

Anybody Who Can Help?

Hi! I’m being ambitious with my writing and I have been really plowing it out on Wattpad with my story “My Dearest Sofia” 🙂 

I kind of have my moments when it all flows and then moments when I just stare blankly and forget everything- yes, even some of the characters names. I know it’s normal and all. Yes, I do battle so much with tenses and sometimes grammar- although, I have not gone through the bloody battle that is called “editing” but as soon as I finish the whole thing, I’m going to dive right into that boiling vat of ache. Woot!

Anyway, I just thought that perhaps there are some people here on WordPress who can give me advice in terms of writing fiction and the likes. I don’t really care if you are published or not. I just want to get my head wrapped around this… 

Andddd… I’m looking for inspiration. 

I already have around 2,710 reads on my story and it might be small but the surge I got from advertising really helped. Unfortunately, the readers leave no comments so I don’t know if they like it or hate it.

It’s just like the word “Okay” or the phrase “it’s all right” – you don’t really get much from that. If they say “It sucks” then that would mean it isn’t turning out to be as good as I feel that it is… or if they say “This is great, keep writing” then that simply implies I’m getting somewhere… BUT, not getting comments is like hearing them say “ahm- yeah..it’s fine.” or “it’s okay” which does not really give me direction or the drive. 

I know at this point i’m writing from the heart and disregarding the rules of grammar etc… however, I would love to hear about your own experience in writing and again, hearing a good thing or two about it.

Any advice is greatly welcomed!

Thanks!

    Hi there. Your right getting no feed back is as good as getting something and nothing. I suppose if you love writing, and you do it to amuse yourself because it gives you a sense of purpose and meaning then should it really matter what people think?

      well, part of creating is to know how your creation becomes part of the circle of life… plus i do want to know that i engaged people… ü

      and if i plan on becoming an author someday and see my book on a shelf where people get to buy it, i definitely should pay attention to what makes or breaks my writing, right?

      but in a way i agree with you and thanks for the comment! i appreciate it a lot!

      blessings!

    I am still yet to publish any of my creative writings online … poetry has been my “poison” so far online. Although I am hopefully to publish a story within the next week. I found a good way to get comments has been to look at other blogs, and find bloggers who give constructive comments on their blogs. Then I navigate to their blog, see if there is anything I like, and then leave a constructive comment myself. I find a lot of the time this leads to them then visiting my site and leaving a constructive comment. I think it is important to realise that you must leave constructive comments to get such in return. I am not overly familiar with wattpad, but I would imagine you could do similar … that is find a author you like, leave a constructive comment (or follow those that have left such comments).

    That’s about all I can recommend (other than paid schemes). Hopefully it gives you some help or ideas. Thanks for sharing.
