So there is a recurring thing that keeps happening. I start doubting myself when I’m writing, I start thinking like “oh I suck at this nobody will like this I should just quit and stop trying” and I get insecure and think about giving up even though my story might not even be bad It might just be in my head. Has this happened to you and if so how do you deal with it? Any advice?
Just read some of the ratchet stories in the trending section and you will feel better about your story
wow you’re a genius
We all go through that once and a will. Just search something dumb on the app, like “pregnant by my bad boy grocery store clerk who kidnapped me” and read the first story that comes up. It will have like a million reads, but will be so awful you’ll realise that if they are apparently worthy of readers, so are you
I’ve had the same problem for the past two years, I’ve been restarting the same story for two years now because I kept doubting myself, some ways I coped and in which made me feel better was that I also read stories that aren’t so good and realize that I could do better and eventually I will publish a story(which hasn’t happened yet ), but I turned to art for a bit and it actually helped me alot, but their are very different techniques of how to get out of this slump, I’m still in it here and there, but I do suggest what other have said because that’s what I did as well I usually tey to get inspired eith other entertainment and when i do i start making up some ideas in my head and then I right them down, but someone did tell me too plan everything out first as to writing it down, and I think that helps alot. I hope this helps
thank u a lot!
even the biggest authors have setbacks at one point, but in the end it really just matters on if you’re having fun while you’re doing it. don’t stress yourself out for no reason if you’re not enjoying what you’re doing. just have fun with it, and the more you genuinely enjoy what you’re doing the more ideas you’ll have and the more your audience will love your story because they can tell you put time into your story.
If I hadn’t already written pregnancy and kidnapping parodies, I would absolutely write “Pregnant by My Bad Boy Grocery Store Clerk Who Kidnapped Me.”
(and to get back on topic, just write something you enjoy,)
