Unfortunately earlier this year I received shame by someone close for reading and writing fanfiction. I felt awful and didn’t even want to think about writing. Every time I went to write I would remember what my friend had said and feel horrible embarrassment and shame. I was depressed and isolated and it was only getting worse.
Until I realized that I can write my way out of the depression episode. I wrote self indulgent mush that only totaled up to about 1.5k word count and uploaded it to Ao3 where it’s been fairly well received in just the day. I’m very happy with it and I’m happy to be writing again without feeling hurt or shame! I miss making people happy with the sappy reader insert fics I write!
