I actually received a little feedback! Thank you so much.
I thought the title would grab a little attention and this time I was just having a little fun/pun with the idea that you are all mostly nuts (So am I - so don't feel bad).
Things people who took a look at my stories for the first time pointed out:
1- They didn't like the content. I would say to a person, they were all the kind who do not enjoy BDSM/humilation stories. I had tried to be clear that is what they were and they weren't for everyone. I'd hope to at least hear from some of the more deviant minded folks who like a good dirty story to contain a fair amount of dirt - but it's not to see everyone's perspective. I don't want to change anyone or 'recruit' you over to the dark side.
Whatever gets you off is fine with me. It just seemed interesting I didn't hear from the more likely audience of the story itself.
2- They looked at my first story, family feud I which is a prequel. It's fairly short and was intended to set the scene for future stories (FF II - IV). The characters were intended to be fairly normal middle America flawed people who kind of stumbled into the realm of fetish/bdsm almost by accident. I tried to portray the people as reluctant and allow them all to make mistakes (So they can later perhaps find some redemption or at least acceptance of those flaws).
However, almost each person thought to remind me that they should have "Won" in the story. I suppose that I was thinking as it is a prequel - that would happen a bit further on down the road and the victory may not be what you'd expect.
They also all pointed out my horrific mistakes/grammar. I really do intend to go back to that story and see if I can fix it up a bit. I thought I had actually.
I would much prefer people read the more recent Hard Times - but I understand what an undertaking that may seem like. All I can say is - take it slow and I am not the typical formulaic author. You will find I like to zig when you expect me to zag and I enjoy callbacks to past encounters and odd characters returning to play a more prominent role.
I am at a point now in Hard Times where I've created so many interesting character it is a bit like the girl with too many dolls in her doll house. So each chapter is focused on just a few of those dolls and their interactions while the others are off fucking, sucking or whatever it is they do.
I had actually thought to end the story fairly soon. However, the feedback being relatively positive and the fun I am having writing the latest chapters has made me reconsider and offer a reprieve for Ellen on her Summer "Vacation" at Buckman Trailer Park.
Thanks for reading and special thanks to the people who chose to respond and even offer the gift of feedback.
I write stories that I would enjoy reading.
For that reason, they are twisted and somewhat perverted - which is nothing unusual for this site.
They are full of humiliation and bondage, incest and blackmail - but typically of flawed people who probably deserved it anyway. This is not always the favorite of people - but to those who enjoy it - it's welcome fantasy.
They are also full of complexities because I love complex characters who evolve over time.
They are also fairly long, because I don't like when I just get to fall in love with a character and they are gone. I look at it like this
So for that reason they tend to intimidate readers - think of it as a bunch of little stories all connected and take your time.
However, not one review in the years I've been writing? That makes me feel lonely.
Family Feud I-IV is completed and "Hello Internet from CowTits" the sequel - how about review those?
I don't mind if you are going to bag on my story as long as you give constructive feedback but at least talk about it.
Hard Times has been a labor of love and I feel the story is reaching it's ending arc.
I receive very few constructive emails of feedback. Some times I get an occasional "Great job, keep it up" but what would be nice is for someone who read the stories to take the time to put out a cool review.
If you don't know how to apply to be a reviewer on this site. Take a look:
If you didn't KNOW there are reviews - take a look at all of them. They will help guide you to the stories you like.
A friend and mentor sent me this.
War and Peace is 587,287 words.
With Chapter 122 - My story is 836,966 words. Chapter 122 adds a mere 5,155 words - which is often the length of a story.
That a lot of words about titties, ass, cock sucking and ball handling.
Some people get scared of a long story - but I like to think if you break it into small chunks - you just read as you have time. It's just usually with stories by the time I really fall in love with the character the author has moved on.
They say you should write a story about a characters most interesting time in their life - well Ellen's been having a really interesting time.
I've never had a review on SOL, I've never got an award -seldom even get a fan mail but I do appreciate people reading my stories.
Thank you so much!
I was just reading how the Romans started valentine's day.
In their day, the men would get completely naked then dash around the town spanking women on the butts - to increase their fertility.
It may be a fun story idea - for someone to write about some college students who learn of this practice and decide to bring it back to campus.
One thing I do as I write is create a "Companion" guide for reference.
I thought I would share a portion of it with you now (just for your edification).
This is a list of Maw-Maw's famous vocabulary words by chapter. I do this in part so I can reference what I've used and what they actually do mean. I always assume that people will google the words they don't understand if they can't determine their context while reading the story.
I think it's fun to have a character who is very wordy and uses 50 cent words when a nickel one will do.
Later when the story is finished - I'll post the entire companion guide.
BTW - working on chapter 113 and I think you will love it!
