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.

Oh man, so sorry that took so long. I hope Anzaleth is still interested in contributing, the last two weeks have been insane.

A little bit more of the Reed Richards strand of the SSSL/latex stripper storyline. All comments and contributions are welcome! :)

ES, I have stuff. I just have been roped into extra shifts this week for work and need better net connection than my phone to post.
ESchorcho - 6/24/2015 9:43 AM
gothamalleyviper, I'd like to see some more Rubber Queen. I'm loving what is happening with Selina, especially.
DeMonic - 6/24/2015 5:21 AM
I started calling Jessica, Jenifer for some reason, and that mistake as rolled over into your post too :-(
DeMonic - 6/24/2015 5:20 AM
Hi, Anzaleth. Sorry this is my fasult half way through my Hazmat post tpc
gothamalleyviper - 6/24/2015 12:19 AM
Not really an idea for here, but what if Batman was forced to take custody of Helen Wayne-Kyle and Damean Wayne-alghul at the same time? A 13YO street Princess and a 13YO pycho prince. Could that be a funny series?
