Most of us want readers and reviewers, right? I've devised a pretty flawless plan that's quite simple. There are two options:
1. (Quick Question, how many of us use Facebook regularly?) We could make a group. As for the title of the group, I haven't thought through that far
but if you think about it, and like the idea, we can come up with one together.
2. For every update we post up a new chapter for our story, we could put in our Author Notes, how we should check out this other person's particular story. You can see an example in my story, latest chapter.
Let's be real here, how many of us want more reviews? Working together seems profitable to me. Heck, if it goes really well, I think our readers would love to see us work on a collaboration in the future. For me at least, I'd love for the idea of a collab.
Anyways, if you want to participate, hit me up with a reply here.11/15/2011 . Edited 11/21/2011 #1
Sounds like an interesting idea to me!11/21/2011 #2
My internet home is facebook and I like the idea. It would really help keeping up with who all are active writers on the site. And if you want a collab with anyone, facebook would be a much easier place to make that possibility a reality because it's simply easier to hash out generics without going on long speals and creating whole documents, in my opinion.
And I actually do love the author note idea. Reading through others works and seeing a reference to your own is an ego burst as much as a review (to me anyways).11/22/2011 #3
That's pretty much what I was thinking. I notice not too many people come on FP. And if they do, it's to FanFic's or slash. Not to say there's anything wrong with it. I just mean to say it's harder to tell one story apart from another when they have so many stories on the same thing. My own story is very hard to not set in the norm of RomCom's. I'm trying really hard to keep it original but also have the comfortable edgy feel to keep readers interested. Witty banter, unexpected plot twists, cliffhangers, and the whatnot to give the readers a sense that this could develop in any way and still shock you if it's what you thought may happen.
But getting back on gear, I'd like to make a group yet there is one troubling or nagging thought creeping in the back of my mind, what if no one joins? Even if we get a few people, word needs to be spread out. Honestly, how many people know about this forum and were left in vain because no one bothered to read these topics? How many people would join the group on FB?
Thus, the more I think about it, we'd need more updates for our stories and more advertising used in our Author Notes to promote others works.11/22/2011 #4
So, in my last chapter update, I recommended your "90 Days of Polar Normalcy" I thought it was interesting and held promise, so I wrote about it in my author's note. I guess we'll find out if it works or not. In the next one, I'll make sure to recommend other stories as well.11/25/2011 #5
