That's what I'm trying to say. I'm sick of seeing people who obviously write for reviews and then get pissed off with what the review entails.

I'd like to once again apologize for not being active here. This semester has been a real son of a bitch so far and I haven't been able to get on the forum in general recently. I plan on updating the resource stuff in the near future on a weekend and I'll be active in the section with my own thread, hopefully in like April or May.

Well, to divert the attention from that whole affair. Tis' some questions for people who go with long shows, I'm talking 15 thousand plus words. How long does it generally take you to write said shows? I'm fully capable of going that length (with some quality to it if you'd ask me) but my problem has always been losing motivation mid-show because it seems so long to get to that pay-per-view payoff! So how do you stay committed to finishing that show and going onto the next one?

Well I'm someone who likes long shows but it comes and goes in phases according to my schedule and how much free time I have, I could write like half a show or a couple of good lengthy segments in one sitting and other times I could write a few lines and get distracted with other things and not be in the mood, leave it alone for days/weeks.

I've learned just not to force it, if you do then eventually it will come across as a chore and you will loose all motivation for writing / you're thread.

2-4 weeks dependent on time & motivation. You need to write when you're happy to or there's no point. What I've found is being happy about what you're doing and more so where it's going keeps you motivated to write. I'm lucky that I'm going into Mania season and I've put plans together that I'm excited about. I've not done a thing since my last Smackdown two weeks ago because I've not felt in the right mood to. Previously I'd bang my way through it. Not anymore!

As for the whole review/feedback nonsense, as good & helpful as it is to get some 'helpful' feedback, if you're moaning about nobody leaving you any you should just stop whinging, writing or both. I can't remember the last time I had any but it doesn't bother me. I've never been more motivated & happy to write. As long as you're happy doing what you're doing, that's all that matters. If you're writing for feedback you're doing it for the wrong reasons.

With my first thread 2 1/2 years ago, I would fret over feedback and it would actually push me to not write anymore because I felt I was doing it for no reason. Now my outlook is completely different. Now I write just because it's something fun to do that I am passionate about. I feel like it's almost a relief from the actual wrestling product that is out there. I just like being able to do whatever it is that I personally want to do and nobody can really mess with that. I've been working on my latest episode of RAW for about 3 weeks now, but that's fine with me because I know I don't have any deadlines. That's the great thing about this section, you can literally do whatever you want with your thread and it is on your own personal schedule. I love it

I used to be concerned with the whole feedback shizzle but now, it doesn't bother me. Heck, if people don't read my thread it's obvious why - I suck at sticking to them.

But seriously, when I used to write, for some reason I felt that I NEEDED to produce a show a week, if not in a quicker period of time than that, just assumed that my thread would get lost in the shuffle had I not continually updated it. Now, I don't really care. I'll update whenever I can, when I have the time to. I do hope to one day manage to stick to a thread, though. The temptation on going back to my ECW thread is there quite a lot.

Also, another thing for feedback. I tend not to give it because I feel that what I post in terms of feedback isn't going to help at all anyway, sometimes just think what I put down on internet paper isn't going to sit with the reader so just don't bother most of the time, I just read and that's it. I've given feedback in small quantities over the years in a few threads but, I do read as many as I can. Nige is an example of that, don't really give him feedback but I read his thread every time he has an update to put in it.

Wait, people are bitching about not getting feedback?? But I'm a WF Hall of Famer, and I'm not bitching that I don't get feedback.

WHAT ABOUT ME! WHAT ABOUT SZUMI!? [/Raven]

All jokes aside, I would like to see people feedback here more, regardless of who is giving it and who is getting it. I'm a total hypocrite for saying that, because I won't feedback most of the BTBs here, simply because I don't watch wrestling anymore and the vast majority of the stuff on here is a modern WWE period. Feedback is good though. It makes people feel better; let's people know their strengths and weaknesses.

Maybe that is missing here on WF. Perhaps it'd be good for someone to get back into running a monthly Mega Standings, like I did back in the good ole' days. It would certainly let people feel a little appreciated if they could see people voting for them as a top thread.

I'm just trying to share some love in a time of hate. But what do I know? I'm just an ol' geezer round here. Me and Wolfy sit in our wheelchairs, stroke our grey stomach-length beards, and play chess in the park like the queers we are.

That KOP geezer though... total sister fucker, he is.

Tangent done!

See, Melvis? He's not dead. You can take back your 'murder' accusation now.

On topic, I can't answer that question without sounding like some kind of sugarplum fairy, but for me, I just love it. I love writing and I love storytelling, so putting them in wrestling format is almost the pinnacle of fun for me. Sure, there's moments where I kick myself for saying 'holy shit, did these two really need to wrestle for twenty-five minutes', but maybe that's why I don't feel that is because I keep trying to have fun. And as with most things fun, you do it when you can. It usually takes a good two weeks or so to get a show done the way I want. And as others have said, don't force yourself into it. You really do have to be happy with what you're doing and you kinda do have to have a bit of patience if you want that payoff.

As for the whole 'feedbacking' ordeal, I'd write an essay on it if I could, but I'll save that for later.

I think this was pitched to be revived sometime last year, but there weren't enough threads to possibly make it meaningful. Seeing as how the section has had a really nice influx since the New Year, this may be a possibility at this point. I'd totally be behind and endorse it if it helps people out.
