Topic: Did writing…
Posted: 13 Jul 2012 06:53

I can't remember what the first book I ever read was, but the first really good one made me want to write the way that author did. I was lost in their world and so disappointed when the book ended, and I had this urge to draw people into another world that just never went away. Plus, there are too many ideas in my head trying to dig their way out. I'd go mad if I didn't write, quite literally, and it's been that way for as long as I can remember.

Great thread! Wish I'd thought of it first for my site :-"

Topic: Do you prefer one long story, or multiple shorter chapters?
Posted: 10 Jul 2012 23:22

As reader I do prefer the ones that were broken down into short chapters because my eyes won’t get tires of reading. But sometimes if the story is interesting a don’t care whether its long or short as long as it eats up my curiosity and my excitement is boost.

When you don't care how long it is, it's a sign of a good story. I believe that if a reader grows bored or tired of a story 'because it's too long', the real problem isn't that it's too long, but that it isn't interesting or well-written enough - at least, not according to that reader's tastes.

Topic: Do you prefer one long story, or multiple shorter chapters?

I think that there should be a category for novels, maybe even subdivided into genre. The chapters could be posted separately on the main page and in order starting with chapter one on the novel page. For longer short stories I would rather have the whole story posted together.

I like this idea. It might be a good idea to add it to the suggestions board too?

Topic: What do you think?
Posted: 10 Jul 2012 23:13

Most of my books/stories don't include a love affair of any sort, because I'm just not into all that soppy Mills & Boon type stuff. Someone told me a long time ago to write the type of stories I enjoy reading, as those always turn out better, with more passion behind them. Over the years, I've found that to be excellent advice. So if you feel like including romance, include it; if you don't feel like it, don't include it.

I'm not sure what the rights are here, so please double check this with them before entering - don't ever sign your rights away completely (that's my advice, anyway).



Don't ever sign your life away...great advice...and thanks for sharing this with us...<img src="/images/emoticons/happy8.gif" alt="happy8">

I found a detailed post about that a while ago, now that I think about it. This is some great advice: http://www.epublishabook.com/2012/04/23/3-nasty-tricks-to-look-for-to-avoid-being-conned-by-writing-contests/#axzz1t2ul1BxK
