By Apparently not a writer - United States - Hockessin
Today, I uploaded the first chapter of my best writing yet to a popular writing website. After ten minutes, I was thrilled to already see one review and five comments. Each comment was telling me to immediately delete the story because of how horrible it was. The rating was half a star. FML

God why is everyone being rude? OP needs more inspiration. Ya know OP, I love drawing but I truly suck at it. As long as its fun, enjoyable, and interesting to you nothing else matters.

Harry Potter was rejected from dozens of publishers before someone decided to give it a shot. And now the franchise has made more money than the GDP of Bolivia (seriously)

53, That's not true. Rowling was so poor she could only afford to print out two copies of the first Harry Potter book. Miraculously, one of the two submissions got accepted. That's is otherwise unheard of, though. It normally does take dozens of submissions before a book is published.

Everyone is an evolving writer. Just keep at it, take their feedback as it comes, and use it to improve you skills. It's a process, not a natural occurrence. Everybody has to work at it :)

You just need to suck it up. Look back at your story and see what people did not like about it and improve it. I am sure that was the reason you publish in that website. Also anything you create will always be subject to people's opinion so get use to the idea someone will not like your writing.
