Hey there!

Just thought i'd start another topic for everyone to dicsuss lol


I was just curious about everyone's posting patterns so even though it's a poll, i'd also love for you guys to explain why you picked what you picked.

I like to post chapters soon after they're finished.  Not RIGHT away, but within a couple of days, once I've had a chance to let someone else read it and get their opinion, as well as skim it over myself.  I'm too impatient to wait any longer than that.  I like to get feedback on it while it's still fresh and exciting to me, and I find that I'm more motivated to write the next chapter if the one before it is already posted.

I post as I write, unless it's old... Then I attempt to set a day and stick to that. :)

As soon as I'm happy with where the chapter's at, up it goes. :) Because I'm too curious to see how everyonw feels. :)

Post as soon as I'm finished and done editing. Usually my friend Lucky kind of looks over it for me. But yeah, I don't wait much longer than that. Too impatient

I could never pick a day and stick to it... I'm way to chaotic for that. I guess I usually write and then after I've had the chance to read it over a couple of times then I post it.

I voted for posting as soon as you're done writing and editing. I used to have posting days when I found myself posting regularly and chances are in the summer I will go back to that lol but for me I usually finish it and then give it a day to edit and reread before posting it up.

I post as soon as I edit it. I'm very impatient, so the moment I finish I'm itching for feedback on it. Usually as I go along 'm havin friens beta read the critical parts anyway.

My posting ways kinda vary. Sometimes I'm just posting up stories that are already finished & elsewhere. Sometimes, I'm writing & posting as I go. And other times, I write a chapter, then let it sit for a while [usually, I forget about it or am trying to get another written] & then post it. Or, I write a chapter & don't post it until I've one or two after it finished or at least started. All kinda depends on what mood I'm in really. And sadly, right now, unless the fic is already finished, I'm not really in the mood to update anything. Sorry y'all! You may hafta wait a while longer for Elliot's Girl & Little Sister.

I post when I'm done editing and writing the chapter. With AIL I was already done with the story once I started posting and posted so quickly. SWIB is more like what I do now.

Roflmao!!!!! I always figured the "messing with Brian" bit would be him telling you off - though, he DOES look extremely hot when he's ticked. Lol.

Oye, impure thoughts.....o ooh! Thank-you! Now I'm thinking them too!!!! Whoot!!! Lol.

And yes, it is a promise [I wish-lol].

The second the chapter is finished I post it, otherwise I'll forget (kind of like how I forget to write) and it'll never see the light of day. Of course, then after I've posted it and read it on AC I end up editing it a thousand times.

I have a really bad habit of that too lol. And now with 00Carter lol once Julie posted the first epi I read through it and had the urge to add on, knowing I couldn't lol. It did me some good cause I know once its up...its done. And it keeps me from tweaking it 743897584320 times lol :D

I have a bad habit of posting the first chapter of a story when it comes to my head... then I'll be okay for the next couple of chapters... then I get stuck! Grrrr...
