Why did nopony tell me this was a thing? Because it's a thing.

The VAs nailed it and it's great, give it a listen.

I mean, I would love to continue writing, because I truly miss it; being able to take ideas from my head and build something from them is a great feeling for me.

I just got caught up in the "popularity race" on the site, and lost sight of why I started writing in the first place.

>>1515680 It's a pity that turned you off horse writing but like 90% of writing is weird psychological tricks to convince yourself to write anyway. My whole foray into spirituality is purely so I can keep my shit together when writing.

Sadly, a majority of writers on this site are merely here to see if they can make it onto the "top 50" list, which is quite sad. I personally would love to be a popular writer here, but I have realized (and have sort of made peace with) that I'll never achieve that goal, because I don't write the "deep" and "smart" stories that a majority of the site's users want to read.

I used to have fun with writing horsewords, until I became obsessed with wanting to be the next Pen Stroke, Gardez, Eakin, etc.  That's why I no longer read or write any pony fanfiction; I stick to reading my favorite published fiction because I'm not intimidated by those who write as a career.

Write the stories that you want to read. Never write for fame, fortune, glory or praise. Those things will come automatically as you grow. Write for you, or your very close friends.

Every story I've written for the wrong reasons has been terrible. Keep your motives pure.

>>1467455 I'm glad you've taken the time to write them for people like me.

Any tips for a fledgeling writer like myself?
