Enter a deep dark hole in the soul of a happy writer.

In the heart of a weak commaful writer

by dahreejayne

I am struggling. I can't help but be disappointed with myself. Empty notifications? Oh. My stories are not good enough.

It hasn't been that long since I started writing out my thoughts and feelings here freely. Some, I regret publishing. So I delete them.

I delete them because they represent and remind me of my failure. The failure to connect with people. It's one of the worst things an amateur writer like me could go through.

Soon enough,I'll be getting rid of this one as well. It reveals too much of who I really am.

A writer with low self-esteem yet composes pieces to motivate other people. A person who can't inspire herself.

I want to cry, but I ran out of tears. I'll end this dramatic episode of mine here.

I completely understand. Don't stop writing though. You may never know who your writing impacts. It impacts me. Thank you.

You are not alone, many writers lack confidence, we hide in our own little world of words.

I feel you :( . But don't stop writing, actually, your stories are really amazing. Don't mind the notifs, it's just a phase. Trust me... I've been through those times. Don't delete your works... be proud of them instead. :) Great work~ And if it makes you feel better, you've earned yourself a follower :). Don't stop writing :)~

"Sometimes the happiest faces hide the darkest souls" I read some of your posts ( and I plan to read more after I write this) I'm kind of selfish in that I don't really read others stories but when I saw the title to this story, well obviously I read it. I get it not being noticed, hell I get sad when I don't get more than 3 likes! (Grr) But believe in your writing because you are the only one who matters. (My thoughts are scrambled now sorry!)

Ohh I know this feeling all too well. Publishing online is super nerve-racking. This is really well written.

I know it is hard, but please try to not take it personally when there are few responses. Write for yourself, pour yourself on the page, and let it go out into the world. You may be writing it for one person. They will eventually see it and it will touch them. Most of my poems on here have gotten little response, but I'm okay with it. They are deeply personal and unless the reader knows the backstory, they will not mean much. Above all, keep writing.

Same goes for me it just happened a while ago only. I wrote a story and I wasn't satisfied with it. My inner voice said: You can do much better than this. That's how that last story went in trash. I agree, a comment or a like can give make you happy. Write for yourself to escape the reality. Great post!
