    1. Re: I got my first 0.5 rating and now I'm sad.

      I'm kind of surprised that this thread is seeing some activity again. I feel like a completely different person from when I created it. My story was still a fledgling, and that first 0.5 that tanks your (...)


    2. Re: I got my first 0.5 rating and now I'm sad.

      I originally posted this thread days after I started posting on RR, and looking back at what was only a few months ago seems very strange. It certainly comes across as a little whiny, given the success (...)


    3. Re: I got my first 0.5 rating and now I'm sad.

      I've come a long way since I started this thread, with some ups and downs. There was a stretch there where it seemed like every review was a bad one, to the point that people were mentioning it to me in (...)

    7. Re: I got my first 0.5 rating and now I'm sad.

      Thanks for the support. I think I just needed to hear from people who copped it themselves. I know what voices I should be listening to, but there is something about those negative responses that just (...)


    8. Re: I got my first 0.5 rating and now I'm sad.

      I started putting up my fiction a little under two weeks ago. Things are going well and I reached rank 139, but then I got my first 0.5 rating and it dropped me forty spots. I know lots of people rack (...)
