I like fanfiction. A lot. I used to read it before one day I said, “Screw it, let’s write a fanfic!”
It got little no page views. I had one loyal reviewer. It felt like I was writing for that one person.
Occasionally, I would get a new reader who’d leave a review.
I wrote one story in Spanglish and someone commented, “We can see that you’re obviously not bilingual.”
It bothered me for a little while. I just replied, “Grassy ass,” and moved on.
I still haven’t finished that story.
Not because of that stupid comment but because I didn’t receive any other comments afterward.
I felt as if the fic was as good as gone.
I still think about finishing it. For myself.
But it’s hard looking at your old writing. I do that and think, “why did I write that?”
