it’s really frustrating, as a writer in fandom, the way fans on a platform like tumblr consistently undervalue fanfic

to post things we’ve labored over, things we’ve put our hearts into, to share these things because we love the characters and the relationships and we want others to engage with us and our feelings for them—and then to watch our labors of love die out with a mere handful of notes, while we see beautiful fanart and gifsets go viral, thousands upon thousands of other fans sharing and resharing and expanding upon our works with their own thoughts and feelings…

it’s really discouraging

stop just liking fic posts. reblog them more. show writers that you care, and show them how much. share their work with everyone else, so they can experience it too.

I share this feeling, but I don’t see how this is a problem exclusive to writers in fandom, and even less a problem exclusive to to this platform. Fanfic writers regularly feel discouraged from lack of comments/reviews on ff.net, ao3, and what have you.

And it’s the fame for us fanartist, not all fanarts go viral, and there are plenty of artist (in this platform specifically) who have extremely high technical knownladge and skills, but they simple haven’t been as exposed yet. Save for the “viral hits” it is rather hard to find fanartists for specific fandoms. And again, even for the arts that go popular, those dont nescessarely get good, insightful feedback (and it’s the same in every other website like DA and etc).

All makers of fan-content always wish for more insightful feedback on their work, this is not a problem exclusive to writers.

I always feel bad when I see an artwork that clearly is stellar only get a handful of notes.  It’s a shame, really.

But I do think that tumblr is a completely horrible avenue for fic posting.  I absolutely never read fic on tumblr.  (I’m an AO3 person, but probably others read off ff.net or whatever.)  It’s an extremely visual place that involves seconds of attention given to each post, and gifs and drawings automatically have a leg up.

Maybe a solution for writers would be to put clear headers and AO3/ff.net info above a “read more” and any actual story text below a read more.  Not sure if it would get you more tumblr notes, but it might get you more readers overall.  I know I naturally tend to scroll past any large blocks of text, and I love to read.

#tumblr is difficult for a writer #while I agree it's probably this way also for other creators #I think the writers in particular have it hard because it's easy to scroll past words #but the thing about AO3 is that I feel like I get even less feedback there
