I do understand what you're saying. In order to improve, there has to be a definite want
there. But seeing as the majority of story and poetry writers on dA write because they are passionate about it - to not receive comments at all, or even to just receive positive comments, can make improving your writing a very difficult feat. I mean, why take the time and effort to improve your writing, when you can just keep writing the same way and maintain the personal enjoyment of it?
Thankfully, in my group, Deviant-Writing
, we are trying our best to overcome this 'fave and run' habit that everyone has got into. We do offer our folder which is the Feedback Loop, where in order to submit one of your own pieces, you need to comment on at least 2 pieces of literature that are already in that folder. That being said, there haven't been many submissions there in a while...
Alternatively, you can send a note to MEHERmeher who is our critique specialist, and always will strive to comment and critique on pieces of literature. If you send her a couple of links to your work, she will get back to you ASAP.
Lastly, there are our advisors of the group, who are BlizzardBlitzer and BowtiesAreCool15, and you can always talk to them about your struggles (and accomplishments) in writing and they can offer ways to help and improve, or even just take the time to chat with you to help raise your spirit a little.
I hope this helps?
Just know that whatever you are going through, in Deviant-Writing
, we are all writers, and we have all experienced the same or very similiar things. Now that we have upgraded to Super Group status, we are going to host a number of chat sessions in our new chatroom to help members get in touch with eachother, and also myself and the other admins, to simply discuss our writing and help one another. We may
also start offering points (among other benefits) to those who comment on pieces of lit in our group. All I can offer is to keep going, and you should definitely have a chat with MEHERmeher, BowtiesAreCool15 and/or BlizzardBlitzer as they are brilliant people and I can guarantee that they are more than happy to help you.
