hiya! so i've been here on wtw for about 2 months now & recently hit the milestone of 50 followers! personally i try not to focus too much on the numbers as i just wanna be around this community & writing as much as possible. but i would be lying if i said i didn't feel happy about hitting that number - 50 people hitting that follow button is a lot! it always made me happy to see people leaving likes or comments on my pieces, it comforts me to know that there are actual people out there reading my writing and having opinions on it!
also, it would feel selfish and ungrateful to not properly show my appreciation for everyone on wtw, whether or not you follow me bc tbh, i've learned so much about writing through reading others' writing in the 2 months i've been here than the past 2 years. wtw has given me something to look forward to in the morning (and also something to look at while I'm bored during my classes lol) and the joy of finding new pieces that inspire me never gets old.
i wanna try to give back to our community a little more, and i have 2 main ideas.
1) Q&A i haven't really properly introduced myself on this platform tbh i just started posting so i figured a Q&A would be great if there's anything you wanna know about me! drop any questions you may have for me down below in the comments and ill do my best to answer them in a separate post! although fair warning, i do lead a very typical & privileged life here in Singapore, so not sure how much of my life would grant any unique or insightful answers to your questions.
2) want a like/comment/review? i haven't been doing so well with reading, 'liking' or reviewing others' posts here as of late - chalk it up to writers' block and general life events - but i desperately need to get back into the rhythm of doing so. it would be hypocritical of me to expect an audience for my work and not be willing to be an audience for others as well. if there are any pieces you would like me to like/comment/review (any or all options works for me!) drop a link to them below or let me know & i can just look through your account! you don't have to already be following me or anything, it's open to all! :)
above all, thank you. for being here, for writing, for inspiring me every day to get off my ass and write. i stopped writing 3 years ago out of fear and insecurities, sure that i was never going to write ever again. i'm eternally grateful for wtw and this community we have, that has emboldened me to write, to reflect, and most importantly, to create without fear.
ok im a little late on the 50 followers thing since it happened a few days ago but the past few days have been hectic for me, and i was too tired to write and post this then - doesn't change my overall gratitude for y'all, appreciate evryone who's ever liked, commented, followed, or just read my pieces. y'all are the best :)
