I write because I enjoy writing. But I also love it when I know people have appreciated my work.

I guess I could be more tactical or cynical (depending on how you view it) and friend loads of people to increase the number of readers and votes. I think some of my stories have been pretty darn good and it is a little irksome to read some poorly written stories with high numbers of views/votes. But I made a decision a while back to only have people as friends who I actually talk to.

But as with everything in life I think you need people close to you who will be honest with you. People you trust to give an honest opinion and not flatter you. Theirs are the only opinions that really matter. I'm lucky to have two such people on here.

I would imagine as far as views go that the majority of views come from non-members. Only members can vote and comment. So yes the analogy of friends would work there.

I think the true verdict of whether a story is a success or not makes up a concensus of a lot of factors....views, comments, ratings, how the author feels about the story, etc.

Somewhat disturbingly, anything in the incest category with the tags "daddy daughter" gets a shit load of views. Hey - give the public what they want I guess. I've never read one myself so I won't pass comment if they're actually any good.

Apparently 603 authors on here have the Famous Story badge - which is about 1 in 10 authors.

But that doesn't really tell the whole story. It's getting much harder to become the author of a famous story. Those who have joined Lush in the last 3 years have about a 1 in 20 chance of being the author of a famous story, that rises to 1 in 100 if you joined in the last 12 months. For authors who joined over three years ago, about 1 in 4 have the Famous Story badge.

If symptoms persist, consult a psychiatrist.

Why not read some stories instead

Certain categories definitely have more of a chance of getting one.

Stories in some of the niche categories I doubt have any or at the most just a few. Haven't really looked to see.

I would be interested in seeing a list of how many Famous Stories are in each category.

Wondering, out of how many Authors? How many total Author's do we have. Of course I'm sure that counts people who have left Lush and no longer write either but their work still is seen.

I just joined six months ago, and have hope of getting a famous story soon. Regardless of the section it's in.

There are 5487 authors on Lush. 1396 of which have joined in the last 12 months.

Only 17 of those have managed to get a Famous Story.

Only 2 of those have managed to do it with stories that weren't Incest or Taboo: Kinky_becky and Nawtygirl7 who wrote Wife Lover stories

I have 17 (seventeen) stories here that are "Famous"; that is, with more than 30,000 views each.
Is this very high? Do any other folks have more "Famous" stories than this?2407_group_hug


Well done on your achievement, Buddy. That's a LOT of famous stories.

I haven't even written that many stories in total. Three of mine have passed 30,000 views with a fourth coming pretty close. It's only two months old and in the straight sex category so I'm very happy with that one. :)

I suggest a new Badge called Legendary Stories for 100,000 views.


Buz is the trailblazer for the new badge. I just noticed it on my profile! It's interesting to click on it - there are quite a few Lushies that qualified!

There's a few as well missing off that list. If you do a member search for people with the badge it comes up with 60 lushies instead of the last 36 you see if you click on the badge. [MEMBER SEARCH LINK]

A fantastic achievement and a huge challenge for anyone to get on that list - just two authors joining in the last two years are on it.

If you have, thanks for reading. It's always appreciated. I know I don't have a Recommended read, or Editors choice for you to choose from, but I think you'll be happy with any story you choose. I write the way I write, and try my best. I know a lot of you like my stories that was in the removed category, but I hope you can appreciate the rest of them. Check this one out.

3 Items up and my first story ever written in general has over 60,000 views and is well on it's way to becoming a legendary story.

Yes it's in "that" section but for my first time putting pen to paper with the intent to write a story I am extremely proud of myself.

Under construction
Currently writing: His & Hers Secret CHs 2 & 3 (Trans)
On Deck: My Dark Lover Ch2 (supernatural)

I'm achingly close in the Milf category with Boned, closing out year #2 at the end of the month.

28,502

I look in on it every so often to see that it's crept up another 500 or so, slowly edging it's way there.

There are some amazing writers on this site.

My quickie sex comp story has just under 3600 views. I've only recently started writing and I hope I can improve my skill as an author to the level as some of the writers here.

Please take a look at my recent stories. More to cum soon

I am blessed to have one "Famous" story in the Taboo category and another one with nearly 22,000 views in the MILF category. I am still amazed at them both!
