Writers, once they feel comfortable sharing these precious parts of their souls, live off of feedback for their pieces. It’s fantastic whenever someone praises your story while it can be disheartening to hear critique.

I found my oldest piece of fanfiction the other day and, dear Lord, it needs to be killed with fire.

I won’t destroy it, though. As horrendous it is, it proves how long I’ve come as a writer. That, and I remember my 14-year-old self getting some of the best feedback due to that story.

I forget what exactly the feedback was since it was so long ago and the fanfiction website ate the feedback, but it was my first encounter with constructive criticism. I was touched that someone had taken the time to craft such feedback on my story which, at that point, had gotten some trolls and out-of-proportion praise from other young writers. The constructive criticism helped thicken my skin and made me want to improve my writing.

What more inspiration could a writer want?

What about you? What’s your most memorable feedback?

    Was this from your Zelda story? I think I know which piece of feedback you’re talking about!

      Yeah, it was. The review didn’t stay for very long thanks to the site glitching!
