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 :)

GAV, can't wait to see what you come up with for Rubber Queen!
Cal512 - 8/30/2016 9:41 AM
@bambucea09, you know redketchumashsbro has added a lot to symbiote stories. And even if he hasn't, spewing insults is hardly endearing.
colleem - 8/30/2016 5:21 AM
So working on a new ssat chapter, then afterwards a new chapter for masterplan and then maybe bliss. Depends on were or when solar eschorcho will take their chapters??
bambucea09 - 8/30/2016 12:13 AM
@Regret you did a very good job with Lauren's Rise to Dominance chapter.
bambucea09 - 8/30/2016 12:02 AM
@redketchum.ashsbro if you don't know how to post something, then don't post you idiot! Why you need to do this!? Ate you retard or something like that?
gothamalleyviper - 8/29/2016 4:34 PM
ES am working on another chapter of Rubber Queen
ESchorcho - 8/29/2016 3:45 PM
buffyvamp, thanks for adding to the Bacchus Rising storyline. Very well written. You nailed the dialogue!
Cal512 - 8/29/2016 3:20 PM
sry for double post. It was a browser tab-restoration.
Cal512 - 8/29/2016 3:20 PM
@bambucea09 Isn't "Wasp: Devilish Woman" pretty much what you want? Why not add something there?
bambucea09 - 8/29/2016 2:14 PM
To Cal512. Good idea but isn't what I mean to say. I want to read not to write...I'm upset because I can't find one good to read and be my type...
