This is a short post, and it will be more about how I'm learning and growing as a person than a rant at other people :)
When I first started looking for feedback on the internet, it made me incredibly frustrated when my requests got ignored. It was similar to the frustration I felt when agents didn't respond to queries, but I understand why agents don't get back to me all the time. They're busy. But the forums are FILLED with thousands of people just bursting to give their opinions...and I mean that in a good way.
Anyway, as I started blogging more and commenting on other people's blogs, I got less and less frustrated. I do still get frustrated when I'm ignored, but it's not as intense, and I don't care for nearly as long. The people who don't have any desire to help me are more than welcome to just pass me by. I've developed a base of people whose writing I can read, who will point me in a direction to get help with my work, and who (hopefully) know that they can rely on me to do the same for them.
It also helps that I'm making a lot of progress these days, so I feel like, despite a few roadblocks like a lack of feedback, I'm still moving forward :)
Have a great weekend!
P.S. I'm looking for some un-published writing to read, so if you want feedback on your work, let me know and I'll take a look at it :)
