And probably pretty much nothing else will be either. Sorry.
Just, I think I’m about done with writing stuff, and trying to helpfully put it different places for people, and then just getting mean shit back. It hurts, and it fucks with my confidence about writing, and it just isn’t healthy caring that much any more. And especially with Smashwords, between the odd rules and the revolting weirdos it attracts, just, fuck it. If people can’t be a bit supportive when they get something for free, then I can’t see the point bothering.
Probably Wattpad has raised my hopes or expectations or something. But, well, it has.
Um, this is about a bad review, obviously.
So basically, I think I’m done putting free stuff on Smashwords, and sorry to those of you who actually use it, but I’m just getting less and less able to deal with this kind of shit any more. As in, why bother when I’m not being paid anyway, and when I can just put everything on Wattpad, where people are normaler. Normalish. Whatever. Polite, anyway. And also because how I’m just a little bit icked by an obvious man nastily reviewing a story like Anonymous. Without wanting to make too much of that, and offend everyone else who isn’t like that.
Anyways, fuck it, if people are going leave pointless mean reviews on free books… well, they’re free books, and its only Smashwords, so what the fuck do I care.
And the same has gone for ARe for a while now too, just in case that wasn’t obvious.
So yep, I think I’m done. Smashwords probably still gets the pay stuff because afaik its the only way to get to the Apple bookshop, but the free stuff, it just isn’t worth the misery of bothering any more. So I won’t.
Sorry to rant. That’s just what’s been going on today.
