I hope this isn’t true but..

Just saw this post over on Reddit from a writer sharing their experience about other writers in writing communities. What they had to say was so sad that it makes one think twice before sharing work online.

Other writers being mean to each other and putting each other down. I mean why would you even do that and how could you do that to another person? I don’t know how people online full of malice, hate and anger can do what they do. I imagine it must get so exhausting hating everyone all the time.

But as for writers online, I still don’t know how people can do it so easily. I feel uncomfortable about sharing as it is so whenever I do I’m fighting with the other part of me that’s yelling “Nòoooooo!” in my head.

When I share, it’s from the heart. Otherwise, what’s the point, right?
