People pleading for author support and reviews from their friends need to stop.
Yes, I support authors and I support leaving author reviews, but getting riled up about these things is only hurting your progress as a writer. When you ask people to “support” you and they do, 99 times out of 100 it’s because they’re being nice.
What you should be pleading for are rejections and harsh criticisms. Those things will push you to get better at writing 1,000X more than feeling good when a friend “supports” you.
Okay, enough with the rant. Writing is tough. Super tough! And if you’re writing a novel, holy cow you’re amazing! You’re doing what everyone around you says they will do but never start. Keep pushing yourself. Keep writing. Keep improving
