I just started getting interest in writing web novels. So I decided to write one, after all my life motto is "it never hurts to try." I wrote one short story book, at first it was really cringey but after a few second i enjoyed it. I hope I can improve in the future
Welcome. I understand the 'cringe' reaction.
I actually posted my first story here, then panicked and deleted it, before finding some courage again to 'restore' it. (I know, the mods must be annoyed :))
Anyway, wish you luck, hope you find readers here.
Good to know you are one of the relatively few brave enough to give it a go! My personal opinion is no one starts out perfect or ever achieves it. But the only way to get close is to enjoy it and give it a go. Well done on taking the first step and I like your signature!
Anyways, hope you are doing well and that you enjoy your time here.
I don't know any author that doesn't have at least some stuff they feel is "cringy". I go back and read some of my old stuff and think "oof", but it's how you get better. Like an artist that looks at their first drawings, you can see how much you've grown. (And also *fix* the cringy parts of those stories when you are ready). Writing is one of those things that will improve the more you do it. You can read books and read forums, but until you really start putting ink to paper (or pixels to screen nowadays) and truly begin to try and build your world and characters, it won't be the same. Good luck to you and have fun with your writing. It's the best part about it.
