Be Proud of (Your Writing)

I think most writers has been in the position where they post a story and find that it is not getting the attention they desire. However, you shouldn’t despair, and here’s why:

First of all, getting noticed takes time (unless you are insanely lucky or know somebody already famous) It doesn’t matter how well written your piece is, you’re most likely not going to get a lot of attention from it.

But that is not what you came here to find out, because, we’ve all been there, and I know the feeling of inadequacy.

That aside, one should always do their best, because it is the only thing you can control. If you publish something and you find your viewership low, you will still have the pride in that you did your best.

One method I use whenever I feel down is that I go back and make sure that there is absolutely nothing I can do to change how the story currently is. Simply put, I’ve done my best with the level of skill that I had at that point in time. And that feels pretty good, regardless of the audience.
