I realise I am critical of my work. I also realise that I am defensive of my own work too. I experienced a imediate deletion request to a story I posted. A story I had workshopped elsewhere and believed was complete.
It isn't. It is still rough. I should delete or move it to the workshop thread if possible. I see this now.
I did not see it when I had posted it. All I saw was a deletion request 4 minutes after it had been posted. Which seemed far too short a time to have actually read it.
I still have room to grow as a writer. It is why I continue to write. *sighs*
