oh, and something I find a little strange, odd, with just a touch of ironic, is that I get like one reply when I introduced my photonovel, but when I say im cancelling it cuz i wasnt getting much replies, that was when i got all the replies swarming in. and most of the feedback was negative and critical, you know who you are...
just thought id point that out.
I never comment on people when they say they are "going to" make a photonovel. For me, there's almost never a point. If you want to start a PN, great. If you want to announce it, great. But I will save my comments for when the story actually gets made. Even then, I sometimes don't get around to commenting as much as I'd like...
As Chewie said, many people would announce photnovels to never follow through. I just don't see the point to talking about your unmade idea - unless, of course, you are actively soliciting suggestions or feedback about the story. Otherwise, just go.....go make it and I'll be here when you're done.
The reason why this conversation DID develop was because Robo-Quack suddenly said he wasn't going to go ahead after the lack of feedback. And then I felt it was a good idea to step in to offer encouragement, even if I think Robo-Quack might have been being a little overly sensitive about the whole thing. (and, of course, other posters were a bit too, ahem, blunt in their replies, but that's another subject...)
Anyway, I've spent a lot of time lately talking about talking about photonovels. And I'd much rather read and comment on the stories themselves.....so good luck to you all....keep up (or get going on) the great work! I really do hope these forums become vibrant again in the new year.
