3. How To Treat Your Readers

HOW TO TREAT YOUR READERS

Be grateful to everyone who reads your work- no one has to read if they don’t want to.

 

Don’t continually beg for readers and their comments. A polite and simple request at the end makes a reader feel validated, but a whole paragraph about how you’re going to delete the story because no one is reading it makes you sound like a ([please excuse the profanity) whiny bitch.

 

Be respectful and kind, but firm - don’t take any nonsense. Accept constructive criticism, but stop bullies in their tracks. I have had a couple of people incorrectly allege  that I am plagiarising another person’s work. I reported these people without hesitation.

 

Dealing with comments that constantly say ‘update!’ - don’t get flustered because others are impatient. That is their problem to deal with, not yours. Take all the time that you need to get a good quality piece of work ready. Don’t update for the sake of getting an update out to please the readers.

 

Having said that, don't be cruel either. Take the time to listen to what readers have to say - especially if you are getting a bit of constructive criticism from them. chat with them every once in awhile. Thank them for their comments. A reader really appreciates that you made the effort.
