 #honestly keep it to your damn selves
 # constructive criticism is a huge part of why I don't fucking write anymore
 ck off with that shit
 #I've seen too many writers give up
 tAnd stop writing

 people that they didn't like their story for some reason
 #1m sometimes still thinking about that one Concrit comment I got years
 ago
 #important #fanfiction #writing #criticism
 #that's one of the reasons I never write sterek again
 #whereas with my writing? Dont -please
 #even if y

 #but honestly don't bother if I missed them on the proof then I probably

 #I've had most people do it in a way that negatively affected the way I see
 my work
 #Asking first is a wonderful way to go about it!
