Ok I got this idea for a two-book series and made an outline for it. I just started writing it. I've showed it to a few people, but no one really seems to like it. I thought it was a pretty cool idea, but now I don't know. Should I keep writing??
I am a pro writer and disagree with sethpato above. Yes, write for yourself, but remember that you write for others always if you want to be published. You must think of the audience, but as I've learned there is a market for everything. You may not sale 100 books, but someone will buy it. Check out keyword: weird fiction on amazon for my point. Keep in mind people like different things.
you never write for other people. if you start a book thinking in terms of 'will people like it if this happens?' then it will not be your story and it will not be a very good read because it will have no heart. I think you should definately keep writing. and write for yourself. poor all your heart into it and it will be a great story that people will love. good on ya mate!
I think you should! I mean, I've started writing my own book (but only my English teacher has read what I have so far, ha) and I think that it's pretty cool! Besides, there will always be people that will love one's work, and there will be people that hate it. Everyone's a critic... but it's not all bad either! What are they about, if you don't mind me asking?=)
Yes you should. To some people, it might be bad and something they don't like, but to other people, if you publish it, it will be a number 1 book of the year. Hey, you never know.
Hmm. I do quite agree. if you like the story then write it. but
only one question though. do they not like the idea or do they not like your style of writing?
I am related to a publisher and she told me only to right what you want to wright and you'll be much more satisfied even if no one else likes it
