Oh man I just had a complete panic over mine.

I feel like my words aren't adding any new depth to the original like I've just parroted it straight back out.

I do not like this feeling at all :S

DEEP BREATH. *holds your hand*

I cannot quell your panic but I figure it's like misery in loving company, right? So maybe me saying I felt/feel (depending on the hour and my emotional state) like this too will at least make you feel less alone?

Also. Remember that 1) as writers we will inevitably feel like what we've done is utter shit at some point (unless you're a far more enlightened being than I), and that we should only listen to this voice insofar as it helps with practical edits, and 2)
the 15th is just the submission deadline, not your posting date, so odds are you've got plenty of time for said edits, should you decide you need them.

Oh yes, I feel that often, I guess I'm feeling it more with this because I'm trying not to mess up someone else's idea as well.

That does make me feel a bit better, there is one passage I am definitely going to edit..

Thank you!

When I saw your post I selfishly thought - OMG, I'm so happy I'm not alone. I FEEL EXACTLY LIKE THIS TOO. <333 Besides, one of my betas pointed out a fundamental flaw that I'm not sure I have the time to fix - or even know how to fix,


I'm SURE it's not true that you've parroted it! Whatever you've written, it has another angle, and that in itself will add something new.

And like [ profile] malu_3 says above, tomorrow is only the submission deadline and I'm sure we have time to edit.

It's definitely reassuring to know you're not alone.

Ewe, you can fix it I believe in you. Just take it a small but at a time.

I suppose. It just feels like it is when what that character says is exactly the same.

Really gonna need that edit time *nods*

Hey hey hey, you're gonna be alright. *hugs you tight*

There is no pressure okay? None. Don't think of the deadline. Don't worry about anything.

Everyone judges themselves more harshly than other do.
I want to say that everyone will love it, but I don't know if that'll make you feel better or make you feel more pressured. I can say that I've always loved your stories and I will be here if you need anything.

Do you have a beta? Most betas are always brutally honest and maybe that will help?

*hugs you tighter* I can be with you every step of the way if you want it so. I'll cheer for every single word you write. Okay? ♥

That's a really lovely thing to say. <3

No, I don't have a regular beta. :/

Dear writers! Despite all your uncertainties or whatever, I'd like to point out that I am soooo proud of all of you to participate and write for the Merlin fandom! I will always read your stories, if you're satisfied with it or not. Thank you again for your participations and hope to read all of your stuff for a very long time to come! <3<3
