I'm on Tumblr/Twitter as millsdottir
I also have an account on Archive of Our Own.
I'm not a fast updater. I'm currently in the process of moving to a different province this summer.
The one thing I am determined to do is eventually finish all my WIPs.
Sun Kissed A/N: MAY 1: Good news, my dad is awesome. He's recovered a lot of files, and I'm hopeful that the fic is in there too. I won't get it until Wednesday, which is moving day. But thank everything I didn't lose it all!
Regarding Reviews: It’s not the amount of reviews that matters, it’s the content. When you read a story and hit that review button please give me more than “good story”. I find those reviews quite confusing as I ask myself why the reviewer thought it was good. I don’t know.
So if you take the time to press that review button I thank you, but when you go to write ask yourself: WHAT did I like? WHY did I like it? Was there anything that made you laugh? Cringe? Cry? What emotions did the chapter or story as a whole invoke in you? Did you have a favourite scene? Did you notice any typos? Did you notice any easter eggs? Heck, were there parts that you hated? Disliked? Thought would work better in a different sequence?
Those are the things that make a great review. Those are the things that give the writer insight into what worked and what didn’t. Those reviews help me to grow in my craft, help make me a better writer, fill me with motivation and enthusiasm. Those reviews make me think. They might even cause me to alter plans I had for future chapters.
Feedback and constructive criticism are the best tools a writer has access to. That and a good beta reader!
If you want to tell me my story was good, all I ask is that you be specific. You don’t have to write a 500 word review. It can be as simple as mentioning your favourite scene.
"Running a close second was the realization that stopping a piece of work just because it's hard, either emotionally or imaginatively, is a bad idea. Sometimes you have to go on when you don't feel like it, and sometimes you're doing good when it feels like all you're managing is to shovel shit from a sitting position."
