Holiday Love Meme 2012  
holiday love meme 2012

(Stealing this from dante_s_hell)

my thread here

And not to sound too needy but this comes at a perfect time. Since I've been considering deleting my LJ and all the stories I ever posted.

Hello, crushing self-doubt. Is that you again?

*raises eyebrow* I know I did not just read what I thought I read. It was surely a mere moment of insanity on my part (or your part) where I saw that you were thinking of pulling a disappearing act on us.

I know that life is hard right now, it's hard on us all, but by leaning on each other we will get through it. Don't erase your stories. You have put your time and heart into every word you have written and it would sadden many people to see it go.

Don't let the holiday blues get you down. Smile and remember you are loved and we do care about you. Please... I know my words are petty... but please don't leave. I would sorely miss you if you left. *hugs*

Thank you so much!!

There is a lot going on and when I get overwhelmed, I over-react. Your beautiful words are very much appreciated!! More than you can know!

(((hugs back)))

You shouldn't delete your LJ. Why would you want to delete your stories? If writing makes you happy, continue!

I write because I don't have any choice. The stories demand to come to life. It's when they are met with resounding silence that I become discouraged. My level of self-confidence is minimal at the best of times. It's when the amount of feedback, or lack of it, equates in my brain to the quality of writing, I am convinced I am wasting my time posting anything.

There are people who say they don't care about feedback. Reviews/comments mean nothing to them. I envy those people.

And that's why I periodically consider deleting my journal.

That's hard not to take personally, I know. Sometimes a lot of people don't comment to my posts, either.

I haven't been reading all that much fanfic lately; if I do start reading I often don't continue for some reason. I'm either out of time, or sometimes the interest just isn't there for me.

*grabs on and holds you tight*

Writing is something that you enjoy and you shouldn't give up something that you enjoy!

You make me smile with your posts and you're an amazing friend!

((((((BIG HUGS))))))))
