If you know me from Wattpad, then you know Wattpad is filled with amateur writers. And I don't mean that in a negative way. I mean it as Wattpad is where a lot of young writers are just starting out or even trying to get better at writing. And as a website of writers and also readers, should we not be helping each other out? Not everyone is fantastic the moment they start writing. That's why we provide positive feedback with helpful ways to improve. Not negative comments that make the writer feel bad about themselves.
First of all, this isn't a rant. I've received many negative comments, even hate comments in the past. And after reading through the author who wrote the above comment and all the other ones she's written on my story, I actually find it hilarious.
How are we supposed to improve if people are putting us down? Why do people leave such rude comments in the first place? Does it make themselves feel better? Do they want to put us down? I honestly have no idea.
As writers, we should stick together and help each other. We all have different struggles in our writing and different weaknesses. But that doesn't mean we should pick each other apart. Everyone has to start somewhere, and even if that somewhere doesn't feel very good at first, it does get better.
