Relatable and Not-So-Relatable Rants

Things that personally just get on my nerves and I thought I should share, more the less I needed somewhere to get my anger out before I blow up. Hope you can relate, because right now I feel like I'm the only one who's bugged by these things


8. Silent Readers

Silent Readers

You know what annoys me? When you look at the number of views on your story and the number is sky high yet you have what? Only four comments? 

All of those people who don't comment are silent readers. They'll read all they want but leave no feedback whatsoever.

Silent Readers cause some serious damage to a writers self-esteem. And don't go saying, "You should write for yourself and not care if anyone comments" okay, no. Let me explain something to you.

If I wanted to write for myself I could easily keep my work stored on my laptop, only viewed by me. Hell if I didn't want any feedback I could look at my computer screen and talk to myself.

That being said, we all want some kind of feedback. Why else would we put our work up on here? So it can be seen!

And then you wonder why the author hasn't updated. Maybe if you'd be gracious enough to leave a little comment saying, "This is an awesome story! I love how _______________ Please update soon!" Giving the author that little push might, no it will make a difference. They will realize that people actually like them! And you know what? You could possibly get something out of it. They might say, "Oh that's so nice! Maybe I should check out some of their movellas!" 

So, what I'm saying is don't be a silent reader! Authors love feedback!

And if the story wasn't all that great, give them some tips. Don't be mean, just say something like, "I like the idea, just maybe correct your grammar by ___________ or _________________" because odds are, that's a kid about 10 years old and if you say it nice enough you could possibly be saving their whole writing career! Nobody was born a perfect writer, they need that one person to maybe help that out a little.

Feedback makes a big difference to every writer, so please, be kind and leave feedback. And not "Update" as your comment, leave some real feedback.
