Hello People, I want to know how do new writers like myself or even writers that been doing this for a while, maintain their self-confidence when negative feedback hits you all at once?
I recently wrote a story which I was so excited to put out there. I knew it wasn’t the best but after a few negative reads for reads review, I now think it’s probably bad. I know the reads for reads are meant to help and improve writers but for some reason, I feel like I hit my breaking point. The only positive feedback I received is that the plot is good/interesting however everything else is poop, such as my directing, grammar/spelling, and character development. From my reviews, I got an idea of my story faults and I do plan on fixing them. However, my mind doesn’t feel like it’s totally in it and even though I do like reading, writing, and coming up with new stories I have had moments when I believe maybe I should just give up. I know I shouldn’t and even though I feel pretty alone I know I’m not and I simply need to know are their others out there that had a similar situation? When they felt like giving up but instead coped and fix or coop the problem.
