How do you deal with people liking your work?

Not sure if this fits here, so feel free to move it ~

So, recently, I’ve been getting more into writing and actually released some of the stuff I wrote on the forums and on Dorian.
And surprisingly, it seems like some people actually like what I wrote (and it really makes my day because it feels like all the work paid off even if just one person enjoyed it :pleading_face::green_heart:)
However, I’m an awkward duckling and have no idea how to respond, because a simple thank you seems impolite and like it’s not enough, but I honestly don’t know what else to say without seeming weird… :eyes::no_mouth:

So how do you usually deal with people liking your work?
What’s the best way to respond to compliments in your opinion? :eyes::sparkles:

I usually say something like “Thank you, that is very kind”.

I’ve had one or two people who wanted to read more, but I pretty much said something along the lines of, thank you for your interest.

dude, um. I recently got told that someone liked my work in a DM on wattpad and I profusely told them how much I loved them. Unprofessional but eventually I got around to saying, “thanks for supporting my work!”
Lol. I really don’t get a lot of comments like that so when people do that it really takes me back and I’m just very appreciative and like loud.

I just say some type of “Thank you” and try to mention how happy I am that people like my work but it’s always a bit awkward because I’m so excited :see_no_evil:

I run and hide from anyone reading my writing. HAHAHA


Also, added tags and moved into a subsection.

i do the closest thing to an irl keysmash and cry to my friends about it sdkjbhdbv

as for responses… despite being a writer, i’m bad at words, so i just reciprocate the energy of the person and thank them

BAHAHAHAHA. Loving this.

Same, I just try to reciprocate their energy and hope it comes across how grateful I am

I also save every nice comment I get, whether it’s by screenshotting or bookmarking or anything else, because every single one means so much to me and I also need to cry to my friends about them when they happen
