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.

And any hero that tries to stop them unintentionally gets added to their ranks.
Gorel - 2/22/2017 7:27 PM
As for Strange Appetites I was going with the idea that the four and their family become giant monsters that go King Kong on the city.
gothamalleyviper - 2/22/2017 7:22 PM
Interesting Gorel.
Gorel - 2/22/2017 7:17 PM
there we go, link is on the message board
Gorel - 2/22/2017 7:13 PM
Eh... M/M isn't really my thing. But like I said the comic could be good inspiration. I'll send you a link.

For the Big gay furry invasion, I was thinking that the Furries would spread turning earth's men into submissives butch gays and women into gay men.
Gorel - 2/22/2017 7:01 PM
You could make it where the cowgirl invasion does this also, where the ladies are turned into cow girls and the men into bull boys.
Gorel - 2/22/2017 6:49 PM
Horses perhaps? There's actually a comic by mamabliss and written by wyraachur called "Curse of the Werestallion" that might inspire.
gothamalleyviper - 2/22/2017 6:45 PM
so, what kind of furry alien would be best for a big gay enslavement of earth's men?
