8:30am: Another Fanfic Etiquette Question
How long after a fic is posted do you consider it acceptable to leave feedback of any sort? Whether it's positive, negative, a mix or both, or even just a quick "loved it"?

I myself think that if it  is positive, there's really no time limit. I love having people read my things months after I've posted them and comment on them then. Positive feedback really only encourages the monster and that is important when it comes to writing.

If it's a quick "loved it" and you don't really have much more to say, I think after a while it maybe isn't necessary but again the positive reinforcement can only encourage.

With concrit and negative feedback in general, I would say there is absolutely a time limit. I just am not sure what it is. I think it probably depends on the author. Is it someone who has written a lot of fic or is this the only thing they have ever written? Is the problem you had isolated to the one fic or does it occur in all their fics? Is it someone who has gotten negative feedback before and responded poorly? I'm not saying that should or would stop a person; it's more a case be prepared for the reactions your comment might engender.

Just curious to hear what others take on this might be. Have a good one, y'all.

7:58am: SPN RPS Fic

Title: The Thing About Jensen
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG-13 ish. I stopped before the really good stuff started.
Length: Only about 1000 words.
Warnings: Slightly cracky. Not really betaed. I've gotten into this bad habit of writing things and then never posting them so I'm hoping to kickstart the posting process for my backlog by just getting something out there.

11:44am: Fanfic Etiquette Question
Okay, I've been going through the archives of one of the communities that I follow and catching up on stories that were posted previously. I found one that had an interesting premise but the execution was not the best. The writing wasn't the greatest in my opinion but what really bothered me was the beta job was awful.
I had two main issues. The first is there were numerous instances where the wrong character's name was used. I admit I've typed the wrong name before a couple of times but this happened a lot. My second problem is there were numerous instances where the author obviously couldn't decide what verb to use so had put both in and forgot to take one out before posting. There were points were this all but made the fic unreadable.
Here's my question. The fic was posted back in August and no one has commented on either of these issues. Do I leave a comment mentioning these issues now or do I stay quiet? Like I said, the writing style wasn't the greatest so I don't know that fixing these would have really improved my opinion of the fic much but as it stands, it's bad enough that I'm telling people to not read it. If it was closer to when the fic was posted, I would comment but after six months, I don't know what is proper? Any suggestions?

1:50am: Quiz the third
So I'm enjoying online quizzes today. That's just the mood I'm in. Also this one made me giggle and clap my hands like a schoolgirl. Steal away lu.

Addendum: Apparently, if you follow the link the code provides, it tries to make you sign in to get quiz results. You can just go to www.justsayhi.com/bb and take the quiz from there and it won't make you sign in. That's assuming anyone wants to try the quiz. I could be the only sick soul who thinks this is hilarious.

7:36pm: 'Nother Quiz
Someday, perhaps even someday soon, I'll post some fic or at least something more interesting than random quizzes. However, today I am  way to sleep deprived to try to post something without screwing it  up horribly. So in the meantime, another quiz. This one grabbed from avon_09

you are seagreen
#2E8B57

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life can be bright or dark, depending on the situation. You are flexible and see things objectively.

This one is courtesy of luthic24.







Which Classic Story Role Do You Play?




- You Are The Wayward Heart
"Feel Better."

You are best described as 'Emotional Support'. Anytime an emotional issue comes up or something stresses people out, you are there to help them feel better about it. Whether you are the prankster of the bunch, the funny one, the wild one, or just the shoulder to cry on - your traits favor what it takes to keep people going. You like large groups of people and have many friends. When something hits home for you, however, you have a hard time with it. You also have difficulty paying attention or focusing on one thing. Above all, though, if people are happy, you are happy.

Beta: Thanks again to the spiffy, speedy nightporters
Warnings: Dark, not a happy ending. Some might call this AUish.

3:28pm: I feel dirty.
I always swore I would never do this. Something about the insanity of expecting people everywhere to want to read about what I do on a daily basis. Maybe not the insanity, but the ego. Either way kinda bugged me. But here I am. It's not my fault really. I am a fanfic reader and fanfic is gradually being taken over by LJ. And just because I always said I wouldn't do this is no reason to loss access to a lot of my stress relief so I took the plunge. This is actually kind of handy cause I now have a place to post what little fic I have written and maybe that will encourage me to write more. Maybe. Oh well. Enough babbling for the first entry. Welcome to my insanity. I hope you enjoy your stay even if it is only to laugh at me.
