Hey, so during my time on Episode, I’ve seen a few people leave this community because they didn’t get a lot of reads (which is a silly reason to pack your bags and go) or felt like they had no support or more recently I’ve seen someone comment about how they’re upset with authors not recommending their story. Also, there are other factors but I’ll leave it here.
SO I made this as a support thread where if you’re feeling down and not encouraged, you can talk about your feelings here, and other authors will try to comfort/inspire you. Maybe you will end up PMing each other and gain new supporters from this.
Go ahead, share how you feel, and please note that you are never alone
Just to re-iterate, if it wasn’t clear, this is a thread to talk about your writing woes and get advice/tips from people. I’m not sure if we have a thread like this but I hope it helps ^^
DON’T GIVE UP!
P.S Here’s a thread that contains so many helpful resources: Helpful Links From My (Episode-Related) Website (thank you to the wonderful @ShanniiWrites ) And check out her other thread: Shannii's Fantasy Writing Prompts - Come here for inspiration!
