I'd like to start doing some fairly regular #WriterEncouragements
The idea is not to pressure or judge in any way, but to make writers feel validated and happy about their writing habits, and to encourage self-care and confidence
Feel free to join in on the hashtag.
Some of the best writing nobody is being paid for is fanfiction, and some of the best writing somebody IS being paid for is fanfiction.
The point is, fanfiction is awesome, and you should feel proud if you write it.
Everyone feels terrible about their writing at some point, and many of us feel terrible about it *all the time*.
Your writing isn't terrible and isn't irredeemable, and you should keep writing if that's important to you!
