@darklydeliciousdesires made a fairly good point today about readers not showing their appreciation on writer’s fics.
Every writer puts a lot of thought and effort in creating content for y’all. Lack of interaction bothers authors more than you could imagine.
I’m not saying interact with every single fic ever and everyday. (I mean it would be alright but, we all are pretty busy with our lives and we all understand that!)
But if you’ve genuinely liked the writing, leave a like, a comment, a reblog. It takes less than a minute of your time to do that on someone’s work that has taken hours, days perhaps months even. Do not shy away from that! Don’t just read a piece of fiction and move on.
Trust me you’re going to make someone smile and make the efforts we take to post content worth it. If you wish to remain anonymous, that’s fine too! Most writers have the option in their ask box, I know I’ve received some of the sweetest comments and asks & it makes me truly happy!
Anyway, I hope this ted talk helps bring about a positive change and I hope all of my writer friends (and I, lol) receive all the love and appreciation we deserve! May we continue to post awesome content on this free website and may you all read and appreciate it.
Have a great day!
