I have been here on Wattpad a very short time. Less than a week, I think.
I wish I hadn’t put this off so long, because it is THE SINGLE BEST THING I have ever done for myself as a writer.
I have been so, so, so, SO depressed about writing and my chances as a writer, thinking I was awful, thinking nobody would ever give a living shit what I wrote, thinking if it didn’t find high plaudits and a gazillion readers yesterday it meant I was no good, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
In something like two nights just lurking around this place, I have stumbled on things I really needed to know. Some on this board, and some on links that took me off this board to links that took me to other links. None of which I ever would have found if I hadn’t joined here.
It’s turned my whole perspective around, which, since my entire life has been in the toilet since I was widowed five years ago and then got my heart royally STOMPED on, I really really reallyreally needed.
Appreciate it, y’all.
