Are questions about the development between world building and creative writing off topic?
I wanted to post the following question below, but I was not sure if it is off topic.
I encountered an interesting distaste from the creative writing community. At least some creative writers do not support beginner writers world build their first story. The shocking truth that I am told time and time again, the first written story will fail, because it is the first piece ever created by the author. This goes beyond the practice of creative writing. Even if the author practices writing short stories for several months to even years, the first story will still fail. Once the failure is complete, the author learns from the mistakes to make a better published piece.
How do world-builders move past this scary colossal truth?
