Continue to write no matter what. Save everything you write, even if you never finished the story. Do not stop writing or get discouraged and please, by all means-- Never give up! If writing makes you happy, keep doing it even in the face of ridicule and negativity. If even just one person read my books and I only ever had one review...it would make no difference and it will never deter me from my passion. I can't remember who said this but it's very fitting. "You only fail when you try to please everyone and give up."
