I need some for Danger Close. The review topic has basically died on the second page, and it has six replies in it, three of them if I'm not mistaken my replies to the measely three reviews in the topic. Guys, I know that I shouldn't force people to read the story, but it'd be nice if people did. I've worked a year on that one story, put in almost over 30,000 words, and 74 pages in it, not to forget eighteen chapters. I've worked hard and long on it, and I'm not about to give it up just because people aren't interested in reading stories on here anymore.

Writers like myself love the criticism, the praise, the simplistic comments - we love it because it reminds us that people really like what we write. It gives us the pleasure of knowing that what we are writing, the emotions we put down in words are read. Even if it's a few words, we know people read our stories.

I don't understand why people don't enjoy looking at the stories the writers put out. The only people reviewing our stories our fellow authors, which is always comforting at most because they can point out the small flaws we have and tell us how to improve on those imperfect portions. But others reviewing tells us other people besides the other authors read our writing.

But I really don't understand this: Why do people care to sit in one topic for over hours, posting the same thing over and over? Now I'm referring to the games in CoT. How is that interesting? Maybe it's a different in interest. Maybe it's because people aren't always interested in writing. But try something new! It can always be a refreshing change.

Maybe this is just me, but I haven't really been motivated considering the constant lack of view on my stories. I write because I enjoy it, and I write so others can have the pleasure of enjoying it, too. When nobody reads it...it disappoints me. It makes things a little more bleak for me, a little less motivating. When nobody reads, why should I write?

Well, maybe this is just my version of a rant about writing. I don't think it's ever been writer's block stopping me at this point, but I think it's just the lack of my stories being viewed.

I think the problem is that not everyone has the interest or the time to read and review. I know I would love to get two pages of reviews for my short stories, but because I don't have a ton of time to review others', I can't really beg for reviews; that would be hypocritical.

I do hope to review more stories during winter break, though. Maybe we can bring the Library forums back to life -- assuming they're dead, of course. I think I can hear them breathing. :P

I used to be a frequent reader/reviewer of epics that caught my eye. I just don't have the time and/or patience to read so many now, though. I try my best to keep up with my friends' epics, but that's all I can handle these days.

I'll see if I can't find some time to at least read a chapter or two of your epic.

Sadly, that's the case. And that's my case, so I'd typically be a hypocrite. Despite the fact I don't want to be that type of person, it's the case because life gets in the way. =/

Heh, just barely, though. :P

Thanks. I really appreciate it: I'll get to your epic whenever I can, because I recall you asked me to review it. Remind me to look at the stories needed to be reviewed. >_<

I'd look at stuff, and maybe also write stuff myself; but I keep getting distracted by other things, not even on BZP. D= I'll have a ton more time this week, though, since I'll have effectively gotten rid of half the potential distractions, so I might get to reviewing stuff then. =)
