I totally feel you on everything you said! I understand that people don't always have time to review, or they are too scared to review, but when they do... By Jove, it's one of the most wonderful feelings knowing that someone appreciates what you worked so hard on! That is also why I always try to leave reviews anytime I go onto any sight and actually read a fic. It's sad to say, but the past couple of months, I've mostly only been coming on to post an update (& rarely at that). But when I actually read things, like today, I make sure to post at least a 5 word response.

Kudos to you for writing this because you really encapsulate the importance of reviews to writers.

Wouldn't it be ironic if I favourited this without leaving a review? Heh. XD

In all seriousness, though, I loved everything you said here. I don't usually like 'imagine yourself...' scenarios, but yours were surprisingly effective. (Maybe it's because I got to picture my really badass dream chair?)

I also appreciate the opportunity to better familiarise myself with your strangely hilarious brand of humour. (I shouldn't have smiled so widely at the kitten part. I like cats.)

I wish I'd found this sooner! I feel both amused and enlightened. You did a fantastic job with this.

(Sorry this isn't as profound a review as it could have been. I'm all out of wise words at the moment.) ;)

Bless you, my friend. You wrote you can't get your point across through writing, but believe me, you just did.

You're right on every point, and your humor is an added bonus.

I know the feeling of not being acknowledged for your work well, so I always try to let others know I appreciated theirs. :)

Oh my gawwwwwd. You seriously said everything that I wish I could have ever said about this! You got everything spot on. I really hate making it seem like I 'beg' for reviews...and it's not like I need them to feel better about myself or to see the count go up; I honestly honestly just want to know what people think of my stuff! As you said, it takes SO LONG to write and think of things and to get no recognition is just...dejecting. So it's nice even to get a few words here and there of someone saying they enjoyed it. In fact one of my stories I said I wouldn't even mind a smiley face to know that they liked it...and lo and behold I actually got a few of those lol So even if they weren't actual words, they still made me happy! It's just nice to know that someone enjoys the work that I've done and appreciate the time I've spent. That in itself is rewarding :)

Thank you so much for writing this brilliant rant! I tried ranting once about reviews myself but got totally flamed for it lol DX Oh well. At least there are a few others like me out there! Thank you for the work on this and thank you for putting my thoughts into words!

Thank you so much for writing this. I know, I myself are awful at reviewing. Most times because, I feel bad for just writing something like: 'Wow awesome written can't wait for more.' Or stuff like that, but at least it is something. I know for a writer that is enough, since I myself write ( in german... :P) when I got some free time and my lazy-assed muse started working again. But you are so right!

And since you are one of the most "famous" writers here (Don't deny it. Whenever I mention you, everyone is like: I love her works,too. She's awesome.) I think some readers will start to think about reviewing again. I mean you always should find some minutes to write at least a few words, right?

Thank so much for taking some time to write this much needed wake-up call. ;)

I never thought of it that way, there are so many authors that I respect (including you, you're honestly one of my favorite authors on here) and every time I get on any fan fiction site I immediately start looking up those same authors. The first mental exercise hit me hard, because I had an abusive step father, and my mother just sat back and watched while he put me down for everything I did, as well as make sure it didn't happen to my two younger sisters. With two daughters of my own now, married and going to school full time it is really difficult to concentrate long enough to even get a few paragraphs in at a time, let alone try to remember to review. I can assure you that I will try my hardest to change this habit, although I can't guarantee that I will always be successful. Thank you for writing this, and I hope it helps other people realize the same things I did.

P.s. I'm not normally this sober, I actually like joking around a lot, it's just that the way you described things made me remember how I felt growing up and put me in an extremely serious mood.

Author's Response: Aww, I'm sorry it went somewhere personal for you. No one should be put down for anything they do but this isn't a perfect world, sadly. That's another reason why things like this are important because there are others out there just like you, who deserve the encouragement , who brave the insecurities behind the safe wall of the internet to express themselves through creative outlets. Not everyone has the same tastes but meeting people who do, who appreciate you, is the best feeling in the world and we all deserve that. Even if our special thing isn't perfect. Thank you for opening up and sharing that. It's never easy to do. Not always being successful is fine, lovely~ The fact that you care enough to try was why I wrote this. Writing shouldn't be a chore and neither should reviews. We're all real people and sometimes that gets forgotten. Even one review can put a smile on someone's face and that's the best gift you can give over the internet, yes? Words can be weapons but they can heal, too.

And don't apologize for being serious. We could dissolve into terrible puns if it helps. I'm honored to be among your favorites, madam.

Wow. I honestly have words. This was very well written and there's just so much emotion *wipes tear*

I'm guilty of both not reviewing and discontinued writing. I'm not very great at reviewing. It's not as bad as leaving the dreaded "PLEEZ UPDATE NAO LOLZ" reviews but I can't seem to be able to write ones in (my opinion of) an acceptable length. And then there's stories. If I don't get many reviews, I think my stories are unpopular or go unnoticed. So if I don't update frequently, or at all, it won't really matter. Right? I can get away with that.

But reviews make me feel all warm and fuzzy. Both giving and getting. So I'll be getting on that from now on :)

Author's Response: Ah but see you just answered your own fear. How many other reviewers who read your works don't leave one because their afraid it won't be good enough? There is no 'acceptable' length and the fact that we've come to feel that way is silly. We think that the longer it is, the more they love it. I'm guilty of feeling that when I write mine. And I shouldn't. No one should. If you sit down and write a chapter out of your busy life and post it and someone else takes time out of their busy life to read it, both things are equally amazing. If they review, we writers have to make sure that they understand how much it's appreciated, even if it's just a word or two. If they left something that means they cared enough then they're interested enough to do so again. Open up a dialogue, make them feel as loved as we do when we get that e-mail notification. And if you let it kill your writing, then you'll definitely receive nothing. And that's not fair for your passion, your talent, to go to waste.

Thank you for writing this. The way you explained waiting for an opinion is right, and I do feel like this most of the time as I really don't get that many reviews on my stories anyway. Not getting an opinion on them doesn't really help you to improve on anything if you can. But anyway, end of rant on my end :)

Author's Response: Don't give up what you love to do. Even if they aren't that vocal, give the shy ones a chance. Let your ghost readers know you appreciate them too and let them know you'd be happy to discuss the story with them, even if it's something small. Encourage each other. Appreciate the small things so they don't feel left out or not as important as the ones who discuss in detail. Love and appreciation comes in all shapes and sizes. And try to remember that they have lives and insecurities, too.

I don't wanna have to bust down the internet and start singing "I Will Always Love You". No one would escape undamaged. :/

I'm glad you wrote something like this :) I've been wondering myself if the world of fanfiction is dying down and whether people are interested in it anymore. I'm ashamed to admit it's made me want to update less. Just to back you up on the writing front, I do pretty much feel like that every submission. Reviews are special to me because I don't actually share my work with anyone I know and most of the time the feelings I try to put into my fics are usually ones I've experienced. So to those who don't think a line will make a difference it really does. I picked up an old fic the other day because I got an out of the blue review saying they really wanted more and I'd thought there was no interest out there for it at all. So yeah, that's my attempt to encourage peeps... Thanks for posting this though! I hope it helps. :)

Author's Response: Yes! Those out of the blue love mails (as I call them) those are just the bestest. I'll guarantee that even our favorite published authors still doubt themselves so small timers like us don't stand a chance and a random word of love can mean the world. It is hard to continue pouring yourself into a story if it feels like no one cares, and it's just the saddest feeling. I think we all have to take a step back. Us writers have to remember times we didn't leave a review and why. There seems to be a growing disconnect between writers and readers and it needs to be fixed. We need each other and somehow that's been brushed aside. As sappy as it sounds, one person reaching out will lead to another and so on. We can't hope that someone will do that for us.

Damn! You seriously captured the spirit of fanfiction writers and the problem with reviews/wanting reviews/giving reviews right here. Funny how it becomes very obvious that a lot of us stand at both sides of the "exhibition table" if you put it like this. Also, in my opinion you got your point down as well, though you claim to suck at doing that.

Author's Response: Thank you, yeti~ I'm glad I did well. Sometimes it doesn't hurt to be reminded that both sides have actual people behind them. You get used to something being there and one missed review turns into two and so on. And authors do wrong by expecting them or expecting a certain length and dialogue from them and that's wrong, too. A little give and understanding, and some well placed appreciation can help so much for both sides. It's not ultimately a reviewers fault that writers doubt themselves and we writers have remember that they might be nervous or unsure of what to say and we can help each other~
