A beginner loses his courage

India
June 27, 2007 12:34am CST
Alas! I thought I will find some friends here who are just a beginner like me and have courage to share their storieson myLot. But as it seems most are professional (I mean advanced) writers, and even those who are not like to post their stories on other sites, mostly associatedcontents. I have lost my hope and am not going to put my 'childish' stories here any more :(

It's right... but when it's storywriting one seeks for suggestions and criticism without which only confusion and self doubt arises. I've fell down several times in this area and that was most interesting:)

Don't lose hope. Cheer up. It is true that we cannot please everybody and you have to remember that what other person think may not be the same as what the impression of the other one. So do what you wanna do as long as it won't harm anybody and won't violate any rules here. Good luck!

Thanks but still I'm not cheered up :( I had thought to start a new interest in which one could post their short stories. But that seems inappropriate now. No?

What childish stories have you put here? I have not though anything you've posted was childish. Don't be this way. Keep doing what you're doing here. I enjoy it. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I had once put a story naming it 'childish' myself. No one else thought of it as such but again, no one saw it too. That doesn't hurt me as I know how discussions disappear here in seconds. But still, my story was really childish compared to some in other sites. And it's not that I'm going to stop doing what I do but putting a story brings shame to me :$

You love children? :P Well, thanks for the suggestions.... I fear I have lost the child-touch which used to be in my stories:( All I write is just sad endings of no worth. And that's why I am not putting anything new.... But time has changed now ;)

I wouldnt stop there are beginners out there. My dad in fact loves to talk about his garden on here (webeishere) and well hes no professional writer he doesnt even have a job except his garden. He is just an old guy who loves to talk. So dont lose hope just do what you think is fun.

Thanks for commenting:) I thought you are angry with me ;) I am no garden-specialist but still your dad has so much to share with me. I must thank you for bringing him here (I think it was your doing no?) Thanks for the encouragement... I really love to write even when I know nothing of it :P but a writer needs his readers. Having friends like you all, I don't think I will get short of them:) LOL
