She’ll post OOC about how she sucks at writing. I’ll post uplifting message about how great she is, a solid paragraph or two of encouragement. She’ll post a simple thanks. Then a few replies later she’ll be at it again.
It’s the same cycle, and it is a constant struggle for me. My partner is a good writer, but either she doesn’t see that, or she’s fishing for compliments. Either way, I’m kind of getting sick of constantly having to shower her in praise and try to raise her spirits about her writing. It’s gotten really old, and no matter what I say she still pities herself and her writing.
I hate to admit it but this really bothers me. We’re all entitled to hate our writing at one point or another. We all have our own definition of ‘quality’ whether we are a paragraph rper or simple chat rper, it shouldn’t matter. Sometimes you can do both and other times you can’t and it’s fine! We all have our moments when we just need that little encouragement for someone to say. “Hey, you’re doing fine and you don’t need to worry about your writing because I think it’s great.”
But can you please take the compliment? anons or your rper aren’t going out of there way for nothing to lie to you just to make you happy. 99.9% of the time they genuinely like they way you write and rp.
It’s incredibly annoying to be given the “Thank you for input but you opinion doesn’t matter to me” kind of response and then later see you rant about how “no one cares.”
Learn to take a compliment and try and have a little more faith in your abilities. You’ll improve over time. We all can’t write shakespeare on the first day and most of us never will. Just have fun with it because that the whole point, isn’t it?
