It’s done. It’s probably not really done. I’ll probably tweak it twenty more times at least. But it’s now shared with the beta readers/editors. And they’ll probably come back with questions to which my only answer might be, “that will be explained in the previous story(ies) which I haven’t written yet.” 😛

I always get nervous when I send stuff off (or not really send, but share it), but not nearly as nervous as when I actually post a story. I’ve been posting my fanfic for some 18ish years now and every story, every single time, I fret over it. Should I have posted that? It’s not good enough. My writing sucks. I don’t have enough description. I don’t write emotions very well. I haven’t explained things well enough. Or I’ve over-explained. To all those voices, I say, “Eh, so what?” And I post anyway.

As I’ve always said I do this for fun, I do it because I enjoy it, I do it because the characters tell me to write their stories. I hope I’ll always find it fun, and I do hope my craft continues to improve, and that people do enjoy my stories, but if they don’t, I’ll be fine.

  1. It sounds like you have a healthy attitude toward it all. Always write because you enjoy it and you do it for yourself. If other people enjoy it (and they do!!), all the better. And working on your craft to improve your stuff is always a good goal to have. Definitely keep posting. The world always needs more Viv stories! 🙂
