So how do you stay committed to finishing that show and going onto the next one?
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.
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 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.
