Weeeelllll, you do. Or, you don't.

Here's the thing, guys! This is Wattpad. You're going to get haters telling you that your stories are trash, or just not very good, but I want you to keep your head up.

The number of times I've been told my stories are trash has been so many that I've blocked it out. I mean, sure, they're probably right for the most part, and I try harder every time, but I've become used to it.

However, you might not have. And, that's what this is about, encouraging you!

Don't let the haters get you down.

Remember why you're writing. 

Is it because you want fame and money? HOPEFULLY NOT... because chances are... you're not gonna get it here.

Hopefully, it's because you just like writing. Hopefully, it's because you love writing.

Keep that in mind when people come for you.

And, think about this: 

We all have different tastes and ideas of what we consider good writing. 

EXAMPLE:

People really like Agatha Christie, and she is a literary icon for the mystery genre. However, I cannot get into her books. They are really dry for my taste and I prefer more description in different ways other than what she offers.

Also... she expects her reader to know French. LIKE, I AM SO COnFUSED, WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THIS BOOK?? THE REVELATIONS ARE IN FRENCH!

Now, does that mean she's a shit writer? NO.

But, people (hellish, abhorrent people) on this site like to take their likes and dislikes as gospel. They will throw insults your way because they don't relate to the way you write. Like it's your fault you don't know how they think writing should be done.

Don't let them get you down. People will like your style. That particular person might not, but that doesn't mean it's a problem with you.

Keep your head up.

It's summer! Do what you like, and fuck the haterz.
