    Default So I figured out why I'm a bad fanfic writer.

    It's because I post my first chapter, and then I don't get any feedback, and then I just get all MY WRITING LIFE IS END and I don't finish. So I thought of maybe just finishing the thing before starting to post it. What's your take?

    It depends on how long your fic is--that might work for a one shot or something with a few chapters.

    Also consider how far in you are and how long the story is ultimately going to be--so if you are currently working on, say, Chapter 38 out of a 50 chapter fic (for example), it would probably be a good idea to start posting the completed episodes.

    Yeah, no need to complete the whole thing but it's often helpful to stay a few chapters ahead.

    The thing is when you eventually do get feedback it can help you improve if you haven't written everything yet. I have found that when I write I generally improve the later stuff much more than my earlier plans for it and that it's just better in quality thant he earlier stuff.

    Yeah, I would revise the chapters as per feedback before posting them.
