So :) lets finish it here because i am no member of yahoo :) dont tell me about to long chapters^^ i think most of mine are way to long :)

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.

It is only sad that in the Time where we post on Chapter others post 30 and ours get under in this "spam"
For some reason i feel like i have to say Sorry. I don´t want to attack someone for writing short stories. It is just my Opinion. I don´t want that anyone get´s this personally :)

gothamalleyviper, I'm working on a new Rubber Queen chapter. Look for it in the next few days.

CC, the fix I found was to go back in Internet Explorer and re-do the breaks.
CorruptionCentral - 11/30/2015 8:57 AM
Had the same issue GAV noted posting in Chrome. Tried MS Edge too with same result. Finally copied text into Work and changed font to Times New Roman. That worked, kinda

Using Firefox to upload chapters is deleting line breaks

It's really hard to find certain stories among the adventures. The Categories and Characters make it somewhat easier, but maybe something more can be done about that?

It happens to the best of us Burke, don't worry about it.
burke_rakers - 11/23/2015 3:17 AM
Well, I did my best to remove my busted starts. I know it's far from perfect :>(
burke_rakers - 11/22/2015 12:55 PM
Could someone remove a couple of those starts? It didn't seem like it was working, so I kept trying...
colleem - 11/21/2015 5:46 AM
okay :) Then i will wait with my Chapter until you have yours online :) like the Idea to bring back the Masterplan story
Solarsearcher - 11/20/2015 10:58 AM
Don't worry. The police scandal will be addressed in the next chapter.
