If your parents don't understand why you stay in your room all day, they probably don't know you're a writer. If your friends don't understand why you can't go out all the time, they might not know you're a writer. If your parents understand why you stay in your room all day and try to get you out, they probably don't realize how serious writing is to you. If your friends understand why you can't go out all the time and get mad, they might not realize how important writing is to you.
If you have been writing for years and no one will give your work the time of day; you're most likely a forgotten writer. If you've asked your family and friends to read your work time and time again, but they won't; you're most likely a forgotten writer. If you've posted one of your works to a writing site, and it only got 25 reads within a year; you're most likely a forgotten writer.
Being a forgotten writer is hard, especially when all you want is to be discovered. I've been writing since I was ten years old, and while my family would read my work when I was younger, it was really hard getting them to read it once I was fifteen. I think they only read the older stuff because of me being this fragile child or something. You'd think they would remember that I'm still the same person I was, just older. It still hurts and while I can take constructive criticism, I'm still fragile when it comes to friends and family.
Which brings me to why I created this Wiki, and why I feel it was important to make.
I want all of the forgotten writers out there, to know that someone out there cares about their work. We may not know you, but we care, because we too, are forgotten writers. I want to create a place where there is support everywhere, from everyone. A community for people who feel invisible in their writing, a place where no matter what you're feeling, you can come here and feel supported and loved.
If this is the place you're looking for, come on and join.
