Hello, everyone, it's me again.
Something we all see on this wiki is the periodic surges of stories that don't meet the Quality Standards.
It can be disheartening to have something you worked on for hours or days get deleted, I can understand that.
But what if I told you there's a place you can upload your draft without worrying about it being deleted, AND you can get feedback on how to improve it?
The writer's workshop is what I'm talking about here.
"But Zug, we already know about the writer's workshop!"
Yes, which I'm getting to, and I'm also aware that this probably has been drilled into you many, many times if you're new here or haven't had much experience writing on here.
But hear me out.
Some of you might feel that putting your story in the Workshop is somehow not as respectable as just uploading it straight away. This is absolutely not the case. I can imagine that after typing up your story, you just want to get it uploaded and that creative drive is hard to stop, however I'd like to remind you that the writer's workshop is utilised by ALL of us, not just new and inexperienced writers.
I've used it, and several of my fellow prolific authors on here use it for their drafts. It absolutely does not say anything about your writing skills if you use the writer's workshop for draft feedback. It's just a deletion free draft feedback tool, that's all.
So if you're hesitant about posting your draft into the workshop for whatever reason, don't be afraid, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by doing so. There are plenty of users willing to give you feedback on your draft to help you improve.
I hope this helps, keep writing everybody.
