I totally feel you on that.
This has been a practice in my own anxiety as well. I keep telling myself, that it's not important. It's great, it's sprinkles on the cupcake, but it's not important.
I have a smol little handful of people who read it and seem to really enjoy it, and at this point, I'm writing the story for myself and for them.
Hell, two months ago, my thing didn't exist, and now I have a couple people who aren't my family and friends reading it every release.
Do I want it to do well? HELL FUCKING YES, but I know I want more to write something that I LIKE and am PROUD of, than doing well.
I think the numbers will come. Maybe it's not tomorrow, or even next month, but I am of the firm belief that if I keep at it, one day it will happen.
I'm still really new to this format and the idea of posting online, but I'm learning something new every time.
My webnovel now is my trial-run. This is my practice before I break out the actual babies, if that makes sense.
So, yeah, take a deep breath and tell the Anxiety-Demon to shove it and piss off!
