I keep meaning to post something. However, that would mean finishing something....

And then I'd have to critique it...

Hey, at least I'd have a guaranteed reader!

What sucks is that if someone posts and I don't going an look, I don't know they did it. I don't get notified of original posts.

Do you get notified of all comments or just ones on your posts in the community? because I read my flist every single day - it'd be easy enough for me to comment if that'll notify you.

I only get notified if someone replies to my original post or if I reply on someone else's. I can you that little stick pin now....

As soon as my current story gets back from my lovely beta, I'll send it over here.

Thank you!

Buffy/Angel goodness by chance?

Hurry up!

I know! I posted a question here a couple weeks ago, more than half because I just thought that something seeded to happen.

I've got a drabble-length prologue for Hope on Top of the Piano (which may end up called End of the World News) that I don't know if I'm going to use, maybe I'll have moss6886 look over it and then post it here. And the second chapter may be almost finished.

Hmm... maybe I could talk to Moss about breaking Heaven & Earth into chapters and posting them...

See, I don't get notification and I don't know when someone posts something new! I hate that.

Guess I need to make a point of checking out the community even when I haven't logged on in a while.

Thanks for keeping it alive.

Thanks for keeping it alive.
No problem. Of course, I'm doing it for entirely selfish reasons, as I think this is the best idea ever for a community. I love having the ability to put my fic before an audience before the final draft, and I write more when I'm getting feedback.
14th-Sep-2006 07:09 pm (UTC)
Feedback is always good. How do you know how you're doing? You know?
14th-Sep-2006 10:08 pm (UTC)
Exactly. Especially since my beta a) isn't much of a writer, so she can't give much feedback with stylistic problems, etc., and b) has been known to finish my sentences in conversation (and vice versa), so a something in a fic that makes perfect sense to both of us might still be very confusing to someone else.

This community is helping me branch out too. I'm typically BtVS and AtS, and now I get to read other interests. I like it!

I've had issues with grading and not having time to look at people's stuff (damn cnty office didn't get our internet out to us until little over a week ago). Also, I've posted unbeta'd ficlet thingies (shoot me, I know!) just to get them on out there.

After progress reports on Friday, I'll be posting more stuff here, cuz I'll have time to write more. Gah! who knew teachin would be so...so...time consuming!!!
14th-Sep-2006 12:18 am (UTC)
Time is always an issue. I hate it when that happens!

And yes my dear... I saw you were posting. I was reading. I even commented :o)

Sorry, sweetie. I haven't forgotten the comm... my RL is just insane atm and looks to stay that way for a while.

I think its the same across the board. No worries and thanks for letting me know.
