People Flock To My Reviw Topics!
I find this interesting, considering I have been put off numerous times by a lack of reviewers. But I guess, to newcomers, I get a lot of good, constant reviewers. Really, I have had a really bad history for reviews. Only a handful of my epics really got anywhere, with about half of them dying out because nobody was really interested. I hit it big on TD, although for a while most of the posts were just spam. A few of my other, shorter epics got a few people reading them the whole way, but not too many. SoMN isn't really hitting it big, it's just lasting so long that the few reviewers that have stayed with it have posted alot. And MA, an experiment in a new writing style of letting reviewers answer questions that will drive the plot, is doing rather well. But short stories and comedies never last too long, and any MO or artwork topic die instantly as if they were playing with a Doom Viper.
Which brings it down to, I have had so many bad experiences that I feel I hardly get reviewers at all, and enjoy the ones I do get. However, based on my good experiences, I've got a weird reputation. Hmm.
How did this come by? Did my writing vastly improve so that everybody wanted to read my stuff? Well, maybe a little, but that's not the whole thing. I've found the best way to get reviewers is to review yourself. The first person who started reviewing my first epic was an author who's epic I started replying to. I don't remember his story being worth much, and he mentioned that quality was lacking in mine as well, but we got reviews from each other, and started improving. I have had many reviewers also be authors who's work I enjoyed. Right now, I am being a total hypocrite because I am only reading Kumata's stories, whereas I have a few other reviewers out there too. But I make up for it in blogs; I like people replying to my blog posts, and I spend a substantial amount of time in BZP's blogs replying to other people's work.
So, remember, it's a trade-off. If you review somebody else's work, they might just return the favor. Or not.
But out of the names GaliGee, Xccj and Takuta-Nui, one does not belong, and that is Xccj...
