When I say this, I don’t mean reading it to find errors and such. I mean reading it to enjoy it, like reading it as if it weren’t your book. I do this a lot, especially with old completed books of mine. Like, being your own beta reader, I guess…? I just wanted to know if I was the only one who did this.
I’ve read my Les Miserables fanfic a ton of times because I think it’s so good. I’ve been reading my work in progress to try and keep track and see if it flows ok.
Yep. Whenever I try to fix it or upload it, I end up reading it and never get anywhere.
Oh, gosh no. I feel like if I did, I’d want to delete it.
Usually after I let it sit for awhile. Then I can come at it like a fresh reader.
Some of them. I was really tried once when browsing through AO3 and clicked on a fic that sounded interesting. I was halfway through it before realizing it was mine.
Wrote a fanfiction years ago. Do I read it? Oh hell no, lol. It was SO bad
of course lols, it’s how i find errors
also my fic can be interesting at times even
Yes, I can reread myself to get into it again x)
Also, after a long amount of time, I forget most of what I wrote, so I can easily enjoy reading it again !
I think… enjoying your own books is the first step on having the other loving them too
Usually I find my old books pretty entertaining, even if they aren’t the greatest things on the planet they’re passable, and its clear how much passion is on the page It’s honestly kinda fun
I have a habit of reading my fanfictions especially the one I’m writing at the moment
Heck yeah, all the time. My fanfics have all the tropes I like and precisely in the form I like them. And it’s uncanny how the funny bits are tailored to my sense of humour.
i’m so glad i’m not the only person who does this dsflf mostly i read my oneshots about certain situations, or i’ll re-read certain chapters that i’m thinking about.
Yes, but I usually do it to either check something or fix something and sometimes I get caught up and just read a couple of chapters before I remember that I wasn’t supposed to. lol.
