Xerxes Break(Vivian Ephona) (ephona) This question is mostly for Roni, Brigid and Kenzie:

How do you get so successful in your stories?


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

lolz, I honestly don't have a clue.

T.O.L.I. (taleoflostink) | 1770 comments i know!!! its just so many ppl go to read it and they love them all!


message 4: by Daisy (new)

Daisy | 1074 comments thats a good question


message 5: by T.O.L.I. (new)

T.O.L.I. (taleoflostink) | 1770 comments hmmmmmm


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah, well I wish people would review on mine . . . XD same as other people's too. It might be the fact of advertising or something.


Xerxes Break(Vivian Ephona) (ephona) Yeah that's what I want to do ^-^ I just want more feedback like they do cause they get LOTS of it but I don't want to be annoying and 'READ MY STORY' in ppl's faces


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

lolz yeah, me either.


message 9: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments Hmm ... I really don't know why people read my stuff. I don't get it, honestly. Most of my stuff is terrible! I just let people know if I've added something new, and they read it if they want. *shrugs* I don't really advertise mine.

Paige Miller %^&^@#$$*(@*$%

YOU DON"T THINK YOUR STORIES ARE GOOD??????????? I'D DIE TO BE AS AWESOME AS YOU!!!!!



message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

lolz Tink. I AGREE WITH TINK!!!!!!!!!


message 12: by T.O.L.I. (new)

T.O.L.I. (taleoflostink) | 1770 comments i know!!! they r amazing!!!


Xerxes Break(Vivian Ephona) (ephona) Lol I TOTALLY understand that Kenzie! I'm just having trouble with ppl reading my stories PERIOD


message 14: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments Hmmm ... well, I guess I'd just say to advertise a little. People won't read what they don't know exists. I tell everyone I know when I add a new chapter, and hopefully they'll read it. One time I started a post asking people what they thought of it--since no one ever tells me things to fix--and people found out that way. *shrugs*


message 15: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments Well, it's not that I don't think they're good, it's just that ... I feel like I could do better, and am so mad at myself that I can't. I try to stay away from cliche things, and throw in a little humor. *shrugs* But some of my stuff has been TERRIBLE, like Runaway. Gosh, I can't believe people used to actually read that. I've filed it under, "stories written that suck".

I wouldn't know- I never read it! *is curious* *decides to go check and see if this is on GR*


message 18: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller hmmm....nope....


message 19: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments *shakes head* No way. I took it off a long time ago, and don't intend to put it back up.


message 20: by Brigid ✩ (new)

Brigid ✩ | 5857 comments Mod
yeah, idk either. i really only tell ppl to read my story in this group, and i have no idea how other ppl find it. lol. i guess word gets around somehow ... i really don't know.

i think it's partly about posting the right story, u know? it's like, some of my stories have only attracted like ten readers while others have, like, a hundred. it depends.

like the first things I posted were Destiny and The Chosen One, and only like two people read them. then when I posted Soul Stealer it was suddenly like BAM!!! 200 PPL LIKE THIS!!!

*shrugs* it's a mystery.


message 21: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments Yeah, I know what you mean, Brigid. I posted Finding My Father and not a lot of people read it. And then I posted Reawakened Soul--I'm constantly bombarded for new chapters. It's crazy. *shrugs* I guess it's all about finding the right one, like you said Brigid.


message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

lolz, yeah maybe . . .


Xerxes Break(Vivian Ephona) (ephona) That actually helps. Maybe I just need to not be so dense XD

Ah shut up Kenzie. It was really good. XD Don't worry, it's just you- I hate some of my early writing too. I don't hate outcast and star soul yet, but I think the morte's really bad, even though ppl tell me it isn't.


message 50: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments I dunno. It just seems SO badly written. If I look at how I write now, and compare it to then ... GAH! I keep thinking, "Did I actually write that?!"

Guys, it's not about getting reviews. Really, the amount doesn't matter. If you have a good story--and you both DO--then it doesn't matter how many reviews you get.

And the only reason I get so many reviews is 'cause I write such short chapters, not 'cause the story's good.
