I found this image on another blog and I thought it was worth sharing. Recently, I was on Wattpad discussing in a thread about getting noticed online. Online or offline, writers still want comments and feedback. Sometimes, I feel that readers don’t understand how important it is to tell an author you like their work. Letting the author know you like the story can lead to the following:
1. Encourage the writer to write
2.Help improve the story
3. Help the writer get published, which would make the story accessible to others.
So please, next time you find a story you enjoy, tell the author. I always try to promote reader-writer relationships, because after all, we need each other. A writer writes to share a story, and a reader reads to enjoy the world the writer created. Tell your author you appreciate them, and I’m sure it will bring a smile to their face. 🙂
