A Writer's Hangout (The Original) A Place to Share Stories and Hangout!!

WELCOME!

This thread is for all of you who felt your stories were ignored and passed up for something pointless! Here we share, read, give advice, or just hangout! This is the Original thread! The one Bean, an Original and one of the first supporters of this thread, made was deleted apparently. I am so glad to see that regulars have come back to this thread! You guys, thank you so much for supporting everyone!

Minor Rule

If you share your story, please do others a favor and read theirs too! Not saying that some of you don't, but I've notice lately that I haven't seen any feedback comments or advice giving, which is one of the main reasons for this thread! We all love to read stories and legacies!

Your creator of this thread,

Swishy

    Those premade custom pictures drive me insane! I totally understand what you mean! :evil:

    Wow... I posted the above like a bizillion years ago - but at least it gives me a front row seat in a venting thread! Well - usually I don't feel like venting - but like SwishStar has said - I am getting really ticked off how someone says the word 'VAMPIRE' and suddenly they get 300 or so views and no recommendations while I am running my Darkdawn Legacy and hardly anyone looks at it... :evil: :(

    Thanks though to all that do! Your awesome! :)

    Arg. Honestly. Thank you for responding to this post. I thought people would just pass it up for something that actually looked "interesting" for them. >_<

    I usually use the story thing to make displays for houses I make. The sad thing is, my new computer isn't hooked up to the internet, so I can't upload anymore, and I can't upload the current house I made in my story-display!

    I understand your pain, My recent stories have not been neglected but when i first started out it was hard to get anyone to notice them.

    At the moment the story board is worse than ever with two members spamming the board with their argument, it's definitely hard to get anyone to notice good well thought out stories these days when most people are more interested in reading arguments and gossip on the story board.

    *Goes off to read your stories*

    Thank you for reading.
    And yeah. It is rather discerning when people would rather read an argument than a story. Has anyone tried to stop the bicker yet?

    I don't even know what the heck it is all about. I honestly don't.

    Now now, simmer down! *haha, play of words. Simmer, Sims, haha.*

    I know its frustrating. And seriously, why hasn't any of those girls been taken down from the site?
    I honestly don't understand.

    I reported and what not. I don't pay attention to stupid things up on the story boards anyways. I look for legacies and stories. but lately all I see is JUNK. People going "lawl, do this and this and rec or you will die in seven days."
    arg.
    It does tick me off. D:

    I know what you guys mean. Not only is it frustrating to have your own creations buried under junk, but you have to dig through all the flame stories and such to find the good stuff! I wish they would clean up the site a little.

    I checked out your story, Inner Universe. It looks like you put a lot of effort into it! I want to say that Chapter 2 is the most successful so far, for the shots and the gray story background thing. I'm not sure if it's just on my computer, but in Chapter 2, the white background with the black designs makes the black text a little difficult to read. I think it also takes attention away from the images, whereas in Chapter 2, the viewer's attention is drawn to the pictures instead of the background. Anyway, I hope this helps. :mrgreen:

    If you're looking for a decent non-legacy story, you should check out Solace. It hasn't received many recommendations, particularly my most recent release, Episode 2. I have a website for it, though.

    Here are some links:

    Vera's My Page
    Solace: Episode I
    Solace: Episode II

    Spark Stories
    Episode I : A New Beginning
    Episode II: The First Day

    Let me know what you think! 8)

    Vera...I am just in love with your story.
    I love the way you did it! And the school, the background. The effects! You need to give me some advice on the effects that you did. Completely dying to read more! If there is anymore.

    If you could tell me how you did those effects, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Also, it gives me sort of a movie/anime/manga feel. Which I love. Chapter 3 will be out tomorrow, by the way. So keep an eye out.

    And I'll fix chapter 1 back ground so it can be easier to read.

    Once again, I just love Solace. I haven't read the other stuff, though. But I will now.

    P.S. Your story is the best read I have seen on this site, when it comes to fantasy.
    The best Legacy has to be "A Rotten Legacy" By Clairezy018

    Are you going to continue Solace?

    gemini, I loved your newest chapter! Amazing :)

    Im so glad I found this thread... I never noticed how my story was going downhill until I looked at the views... ranging from 70 to 40.
    I hate putting in all the effort and time just to see my legacy get thrown away with less than 100 views or so.
    I know it sounds a lot, but I'm beginning to wonder if there is any point in carrying it on...
    My newest chapter got just 2 views... I only uploaded it at around 4, but still :cry:

    Would you be interested in reading it? I'll post links to each chapter;

    Chapter 1

    Chapter 2
    http://www.thesims3.com/contentDetail.html?contentId=120477

    Chapter 3
    http://www.thesims3.com/contentDetail.html?contentId=121197

    Chapter 4
    http://www.thesims3.com/contentDetail.html?contentId=122387

    Thanks if you do :mrgreen:

    Swishy! you know I love your story and I totally agree. I actually do a lot of publicity work for my story I'm part of a couple websites and I try to promote it. But my last chapter saw a big drop in recs which makes me sad because you think your audience should grow but then less and less people read :<

    Skimmed your first chapter, Jake. It had some amusing dialogue in it. I rec'd it.
