So I just wanted to start a discussion here because I noticed that I wasn't the only one with this problem and I wanted to know if:
- Anyone else does this
- Regardless whether or not you've done this, what are your opinions on this topic?
- What is your advice for those experiencing this?
So basically, long story short but I often look at my comments section and a majority there are good comments but of course there are a few bad ones. I tend to apologise a lot to those with complaints.
For example, I've had a lot of readers (on another platform) where they demand I mass release 10+ chapters in one go, update the very next day or update longer chapters. I ended up having to put a disclaimer at the bottom of the first chapter where I explained that my schedule just doesn't allow for it. Half of them said it's fine and I should take my time. One of them spammed me across multiple platforms saying that if I'm too busy, I should just abandon the project entirely and do a shorter story instead Some of them just don't read my explanations at all and continue their demands. At this point, I'm wondering whether I should keep putting disclaimers at the end of the chapter all the time as a reminder.
Anyways, I've seen plenty of creators apologise for their work whether it be because of their webtoon art, their anatomy, or in the case of writers - their slow updates, their short chapters etc. What do you guys think about apologising for your work?
