Where's the Readership?

Postby JVM » Wed Oct 31, 2012 4:15 pm

So, I have to ask... we have some a lot of fanfics being written and posted here but... where the hell are the readers?

Most fics here get 1-2 comments each, and I'm not just talking about my own. Why is it South Park fans seem barely eager to read work from others these days?

There are some lesser-quality works on other sites and such, but it isn't that bad over here... what's the issue?

As for me, I just don't feel like reading them. But don't go so much by comments. look at the page views too.

I don't know about you guys, but I've read at least 15-20 fan fictions on this site in particular, not including other fan sites, fanfiction.net, ect, ect. Also I know how people love to hear other people read their works, so page views don't always help. Writers care for reader comments and criticisms. I've commented on a few of those fan fiction's pages. Some others just aren't well written and I tend to skim over them.

It's slighly better than FFnet where the slash is weeded out, but gen authors simply don't care about eachother. We can watch the actual show on here (streaming, for free)

I'm not sure why I repost my work here, maybe for the off chance expose my stupid little stories to new readers. I'm not gonna hold my breath for new comments though.

If you don't like it, leave constructive criticism so people can improve?

I don't know. At this point, I've at least given up on getting actual new readers. I just focus on the great loyal following of five or six people I do have.

Well if you're going to read any fanfiction you should at least give new writers a chance. Even if you don't like the story, tell them you don't like it. I love comments, but when their is a lack of them, it just seems like a lack of motivation is brought on to me. Even one comment is better than none.

I know most people should realize that you should just keep writing even though no ones listening, because if you're good enough someday people will listen. I know that but a few comments on my stories wouldn't hurt. FYI I don't have any SP stories finished, I've been working on other manga/anime.

I haven't gotten the time to continue my fanfic. If anyone wants me to continue at a faster pace, just send me a PM. Either to my Spstudio account or my fanfic account.
