    1. Re: The Blue Box Is A Trap

      I don't normally reply to threads like this, but my story was mentioned specifically and I'm very tired, thus have impaired judgement. I'm going to follow Zogarth's lead and respond to the topic using (...)


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

      This is a very old thread that keeps rising from the dead, probably because the topic speaks to the insecurities we all share as writers. I created this when my story was less than two weeks old, with (...)


    3. 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 (...)


    4. 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 (...)


    5. 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 (...)



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

      It's only been ten or eleven days since I posted this thread, but it feels like longer as I crank out the chapters. I am officially no longer sad, having made it all the way to rank three, (shameless brag), (...)


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

      Bad ratings can certainly feel like a kick in the guts. You have the courage put yourself, your work out there and someone puts you down. I was like a raw nerve posting my story up, which I imagine is (...)


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

      I created this thread because I was new and nervous and kind of freaking out over my first rating, but the encouragement you've given me has been really nice. I'm really glad to have joined a community (...)


    9. 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 (...)


    10. 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 (...)
