No idea, it would be nice though.


#1885

Agreed, just knowing that somebody is trying to help me grow is the best kind of support I can receive.


#1886

Same, homie. It’s a struggle fishing for specific kinds of feedback on this site, though, I tell you wut. You can usually find people willing to give feedback, but so often it’s (inaccurately) spelling and grammar focused, and that shit is not useful in a first draft when it’s sentence-by-sentence based. Like bruhs, those sentences might not even survive into the second draft, y u gotta be focusing on my wording line by line? :unamused:


#1887

same, I am more excited to see a new comment than have a new read


#1888

XD That’s where I am at though, I need the nitty gritty kinda feedback for my first book. It’s almost done with it’s editing stage and I am going to be moving on to the editing of the others. I need those people you don’t want. X) I had one person say that I needed to delete a whole section because it didn’t work well, (Even though every other person said that was basically their favorite chapter.)


#1889

I’ll send them your way if I get them again. :joy: I’m all for generalized grammar advice if there’s something I’m consistently doing wrong like overusing em dashes or just flat out using them wrong #CoughCough #NotSpeakingFromExperience, but hoo boy, no-fucking-thank-you otherwise, amirite.

That’s why you get lots of opinions before making a decision. xD If only one person is in one camp and the other 90% of people are saying the opposite, the one person’s opinion doesn’t really matter.

@ithappensatnight Right? I find voluntarily interacting with other people’s stories often yields some courtesy reacharounds in that regard, too, but getting those organic, out-of-nowhere comments is the best.


#1890

True that. If I am just trying to get the words to page, and people are nitty gritty I just say "okay, thank you for your feedback. Then later that night delete the comment. X) I don’t know if that’s going to be a problem or even in the book when it’s done. X)


#1891

Mostly data entry


#1892

That can definitely be a mentally draining job. Do you enjoy it, or was it just sort of a job of convenience?


#1893

To those of you who were around when I went on that tangent, I am making a tortilla española, we’ll see how it turns out, mostly going off memory and instinct regarding the recipe :sweat_smile:


#1894

So it’s delicious, and I’m happy with how it turned out. If only my mom liked onions, then maybe she’d give it a try… :sweat_smile:


#1895

Just doing it for the money honestly. I don’t enjoy it much at all


#1896

HIII!!! :slight_smile:


#1897

I am not even close to 1k . Lol i am a rookie. I have been on here for a couple of years, but I have to say be proud you made 1k. It may not be 5k but the views shouldn’t matter as long as you are happy with your writing in the end!


#1898

Hello, I am here now 8 hours later lol


#1899

Guys how do you stay motivated and keep writing?


#1900

For me, it was that my friend wouldn’t read my book til it was done.


#1901

Shoot my friend has already seen my boooook


#1902

Y’know, that’s a hard question. I think it’s just that I’m keeping my personal end goal in mind, and it helps to come up with these crazy stories that I’ve just gotta tell.


#1903

Well I had experience after I finished the book, I will gain more readers, than I did when my book was ongoing.
