Anybody else wonder what score Fifty Shades would have if submitted to Lush?

I suspect if it included some cliched incest schtick it would be the biggest thing this site has ever seen.

Topic RIP Margaret Thatcher
Posted 10 Apr 2013 17:45

Whoever is 'in power' is never ever going to please everyone - it's just not going to happen and I still think that I prefer her to our current 'leaders'...

Our parties are led by political pygmies whereas she was undoubtedly a giant. She was an idealogue whose idealogy I largely despise, but history will judge her as one of our country's most significant leaders. The big shame for me is that Blair had two massive landslide victories with which to force through a similar scale shift in our country to Thatcher's but he was too concerned with popularity to do so. A wasted opportunity to build on the good things Thatcher did and redress the bad.

Now look what we are left with. Cameron, Clegg and Miliband. :(

Topic RIP Margaret Thatcher

Single handedly she transformed the economy and world wide respect of UK. Her policy of "some must suffer such that the majority can gain" will be hotly debated in coming weeks and possibly into years.

Her policy was more "your class must suffer so that my class can gain".

There are plenty of towns that over 20 years after she left office have still not recovered from her rule.

And yes she did transform the economy. At the 1979 election when the Tories used the famous 'labour isn't working' campaign showing people queuing for the dole there were 1 million unemployed. She took the total past 3 million. She decimated our manufacturing and heavy industry base. She destroyed the mining industry (with Scargill's help). She deregulated the financial sector and we've all seen how that worked out. We are now a service sector economy.

But she grew the middle class and moved politics in this country to the right. That is her true legacy. The current attacks on the welfare state and the NHS would have been unthinkable before her time in office. That is her legacy and we will suffer for decades to come.

Agreed. It's great :)

Something I've asked other authors before who say they don't get many reads/votes, do you read and comment on stories here?

I'm going slightly off topic, so a mod can feel free to delete this. I think in general there is a real advantage to having lots of friends who vote quickly when you first post a story. I rarely look beyond the first page or 2 of new stories and my eyes are naturally drawn to stories that have a high number of votes and a high average, as well as an enticing title/premise. Who wants to waste their time with a duff story? The scores can be a good guide if you want a quick fix.

If others apply a similar philosophy then it is easy to see how some stories gain a momentum, while other stories that may be great, flounder and sink.

In my case, by posting at the wrong point in the week I have had stories disappear from the front page before either of my friends have had a chance to read them. Once it is off the front page it is out of sight, out of mind. It won't get many readers and it won't get many scores. And then faced with a choice between a story that has 35 votes (Avg 4.88) or 2 votes (Avg 5), it is natural I think for people to read the former story. I'm as guilty as anyone of that when I'm in reader mode.

I'm not saying I'm a great undiscovered author. But if I friended 300 people and asked them to vote on my new story. I reckon 10% would vote without reading it. That would in turn draw many more people to my story. It wouldn't make it a better story, but it would give it momentum and in turn would give me a higher profile.

However when I first joined Lush I did the whole friending many people thing, but I got tired of people who only contacted me when they wanted something. They weren't actually interested in me, getting to know me, or chatting to me. In the end I defriended more and more until I got down to two people who I am lucky and proud to class as proper friends. So although I may add more friends in future, I won't go down the route of collecting dozens and dozens again. It's my loss in terms of my story rankings, but it is my gain in terms of quality time spent with wonderful people.

Ramble over.

Something I've asked other authors before who say they don't get many reads/votes, do you read and comment on stories here? Have you read and commented on any of the comp entries? Support other authors on Lush, and they will be more than willing to support you. It's a great way to get additional reads if you don't want to collect a bunch of friends. You're also supporting other authors, and as an author you know how much you appreciate it. Take the first step!

Good luck everyone. I've read some really funny entries.

Funnily enough I received your comment on my story, and in turn read, enjoyed and commented on yours before I read your post above. So yes it does work. Certainly in the competition environment at least (I'm not so sure it does the rest of the time).

As a first timer with only two lush friends I tend not to get many people give scores on my stories. So I suspect I may struggle (based on past experience) to reach the 10 vote threshold even though I do tend to have a high average. So if anyone would be kind enough to read and vote on my story (Fairy Fairy Quite Contrary - link below) I would very much appreciate it. It would be a shame to miss out on that potato simply because I don't have enough friends to vote me into the reckoning.

I should also say that I have received some lovely comments from fellow competitors and I am warmed and encouraged by the camaraderie they have shown.

Topic How Many Famous Stories?
Posted 04 Apr 2013 15:27

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 adore marmite. On buttered toast or crumpets, or cream crackers or or ........
I just love the stuff.

But I can't stand twiglets. They taste like over-cooked or burnt marmite.
Nor do I like the marmite flapjacks and marmite chocolate that I've been bought in the past. Some things are best left in their pure form.

Vegemite is a poor subsitute

Topic Terrorists or Freedom Fighters?
Posted 11 Feb 2013 06:15

This is what Mandela said at his 1964 trial about his organisation's adoption of violence as a tactic:

"Four forms of violence were possible. There is sabotage, there is guerrilla warfare, there is terrorism, and there is open revolution. We chose to adopt the first method and to exhaust it before taking any other decision.

In the light of our political background the choice was a logical one. Sabotage did not involve loss of life, and it offered the best hope for future race relations. Bitterness would be kept to a minimum and, if the policy bore fruit, democratic government could become a reality. This is what we felt at the time, and this is what we said in our Manifesto (Exhibit AD):

'We of Umkhonto we Sizwe have always sought to achieve liberation without bloodshed and civil clash. We hope, even at this late hour, that our first actions will awaken everyone to a realization of the disastrous situation to which the Nationalist policy is leading. We hope that we will bring the Government and its supporters to their senses before it is too late, so that both the Government and its policies can be changed before matters reach the desperate state of civil war.' "

Terrorism as can be seen from this is a tactic, and those who use it are terrorists. Governments can be terrorists. It is not the cause that determines whether you are a terrorist but how you try to achieve your aims.
