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 :)

Solddate (and any other fans of HHH), in case you don't know already: the next couple installments of Harley's Heroine Heist are good to go.

Hello Superstories. Is it Possible that you can change the Message Board so that the newest Post will be on the Top when you open it? Some of them are very long now and so we have to scroll down very much :)
ESchorcho - 1/17/2015 11:45 AM
I have about 5 Mephisto chapters that I'm cooking up and will post on Sunday. Got writing and couldn't stop, so if everyone can hold off on adding. Sorry it's taking forever to get done.
exidor455 - 1/17/2015 5:13 AM
I've added a new chapter to the Mephisto strand of SSSL, in the hope that it will get it rolling again. As usual, feel free to add ideas, chapters, etc. :)
chinky_natasha - 1/13/2015 6:20 PM
I tried with one chapter of the famous SSSL, it is roughly based on Captain America 2 : Winter Soldier with Hydra infiltrating SHIELD premise. Feel free to give me some feedback. Enjoy.
izenrann - 1/13/2015 4:54 AM
Added more to Medieval Madness! Check it out!

GAV,I remember reading the Leather, Latex, with Rock and Roll storyline when it came out. It looks like a great start to me. I love the concept.
