Topic: Incest stories all removed
Posted: 20 Apr 2014 07:44

I love investing hours into well-thought stories and having them be deleted just as much as I love clenching my fist so tight that it might actually bleed. But, I guess this is a wake-up call telling me to stop writing illegal and quite frankly, disgusting stories about brothers boinking their sisters. Actually, the biggest pain about this was clicking all the deletion messages so they are marked read. But yeah, I just want to congratulate Lush Stories into pissing off 40% of their writers who spend hours of their times writing stories so readers can inadvertently and unknowingly view their ads. Thumbs up.

I think he believes volunteering takes some kind of sacrifice. Because they said they enjoy it, I think he perceives it as not being sacrificial.

Like, I wouldn't say I'm volunteering to get a blow job from a supermodel.

But say the only way to save the planet or something crazy would be to get a blowjob from Edward James Olmos...then someone would definitely have to volunteer as tribute in my stead.

Finally, someone with intelligence!

I note that while your "intention was never to make to make this become public" you posted it not to a private message, but rather on the public forum. Your actions are at odds with your words. You have been responded to by a number of people, story mods, as well as contributing writers.

The reason so many have responded, is your original message was essentially an insult to the mods, who volunteer time out of their busy lives to help writers (I know for a fact all of them are more than willing to go above and beyond to help those who ask for help. Note I didn't say they do the work for you). You also insulted the writers who do put the effort in to hone and improve their craft. Writing requires effort to produce a quality piece. By saying it doesn't matter what you write, you essentially said that those other writers wasted their time. No wonder they became upset. You also insult the readers when you say it doesn't matter. I write because I liked to read first. So I consider myself a reader. Grammar and verb tense do matter. A lot. Nothing is worse then being speed bumped by a poorly written sentence. If I have to try to figure out what you are saying, I can't enjoy myself.

Finally, here is the official forum statement regarding the removal of threads:

That's fine, so long as nobody can see what I initially wrote. And what I meant by my intent was that I didn't purposely write this so I could insult moderators in public, in fact, I don't see how I insulted them and I won't admit to something I didn't do. I did admit that I was a bit harsh, however. And it isn't necessarily volunteering if they enjoy it, so I don't why you're on the defense. And insulting readers? If I insulted my readers what is the point of submitting stories on this site! What audacity you have! You like twisting words, fine. But don't twist mine.

I am a senior story moderator on this site. Publishing stories here is a privilege, not a right. The owner and the moderating team have made an effort over the last two years to raise the level of literacy of the stories published here. We have provided many writing resources and advice with every story rejection as to what to do and how to do it. Along with that, writers have learned and improved their skills. Part of that process is putting in time to edit and perfect their stories. Moderators are here to help you do that, not do it for you.

If you are unwilling to learn and improve, I suggest you take your stories to another site where they will be posted without requiring further work from you. Of course, that would display your problems with written English in public, but with that audience, it may not matter.

I am aware of your communication with the moderators who have tried to help you. If you put that time and effort into improving your stories, they might be published by now.

My intention was never to make this become public when I created this thread; though, my intent seems irrelevant considering the thread is still up.

Yes, I appreciate having the opportunity for people to read and rate my stories. But, the way I see it, if you told all your writers to go somewhere else, you'd longer afford to keep this wonderful site up unless you started paying out of your own wallet. It's co-operation not a privilege. I co-operated, but not as politely as I would have liked. I need you, and you need me. I'd rather put this mess behind me.

Oh yeah, this place doesn't work like that - especially when you start slagging off the only people who can do it for you.

Evidently, I can't express my opinions either unless it's in the form of stories. I didn't intend for so much hate in this thread which is why I asked (not commanded) this to be deleted.

Well.. If you write stories yourself, it's probably a bad idea to post a comment on someone's story telling them you hated it. That's how society functions... What you give is what you get.

Topic: Where do you come up with your story ideas?
Posted: 11 Apr 2014 16:07

My mind. I like drama, so I write it. I don't write mindless and generic sex scenes like most people do because it's boring. Think about it. If those stories were put into a television show, wouldn't you being clawing your eyes out? It's like trying to watch True Blood... Makes me shutter. When you're bored, you might as well write something to interest you; maybe people will like it too.

People got hurt with my original posting so I removed it before anyone else got mad.

Cheerleaders, Jocks, and Geeks

"You just got rejected! Rejected! Rejected!" the cheerleaders cheered with their pink pom-poms . The jock hung his head down as one of the most popular girls, and hottest, walked away. You'd have to be living under a rock to not know who Cindy Traynor was. That blond-haired, blue-eyed, pink-faced girl was in every man's dream, even mine. All of the popular girls were in my dreams, and most...
