Aye, but it allows for detail and action, which is what I want to see. To me the extremely short chapters are just people trying to dictate where the story goes without adding anything themselves. I know this isn't always the writer's intent, but that's how it feels.

I write long chapters to try and coax someone into wanting to read and thus write more of the storyline. I hope people will expand on my ideas, but I'm always happy to see theirs if they take the time to flesh it out slightly and make it fit with what's been included before. Unfortunately, I can never really enjoy my own work and very few people add to what I do.

Maybe times have Changes Solddate. Try out a new one and maybe others will write something to your stories too :) 

But i understand what you mean and have the same Opinion about it. A story doesn´t have to be 10 sides of Word or so but it should have charakter and a good story :) then i like to read it

I am a fan of details.  It is what draws people in to the story.  If everyone writes short clips, then it is more like role playing.  That being said, even in role playing there is someone that is setting the stage or it gets boring fairly fast.

Now the people that write short clips have their place too.  Sometimes they offer great ideas. Sometimes they jumpstart a story that reached  a crossroad without a clear vision.

I also over write.  I do have a theory as to why I do.  Frankly when you have a vision of where you want the story to go, you take it there.  If it is a reasonable next step you don't leave it to others who may or may not share that vision.  However, when one lives in the details, some very simply stated chapter options tend to lead to lengthy set up to get there. (That and as a child the 'good sisters' beat me with a thesaurus until I couldn't say hello without a full soliloquy)  Just my 2 cents.

Yes, and I don't know any way to fix it :-( Hopefully @superstories can delete the bad entry?

Two ideas posted in Boards. One on Addvenure and on by accident on site.
gothamalleyviper - 8/28/2015 10:09 PM
I couldn't decide so I did both. Let me know what people think. And feel free to use either or both...

I like the sound of Pink Bat personally... though Batgirl is one letter off from Badgirl... just saying <-< >->

First off, thanks LesLes. High praise from you. Viper, I actually have no idea what might happen to Babs (I at least have ideas for the others), so more than feel free to run with whatever you have. I'll be glad to see it.

So Wonder Woman with a Flip, I had an idea for Barbara (no latex involved) and I just saw a Halloween costume at the store that has me rethinking it. So Pink Bat or Black Cop?
