I Am Good At Joining Groups But Bad At Writing Stories

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 338 People

    Yes, This Is True.

    I think I have a new addiction. I see a shiny new group and YESSSSS I want to join. I think 'why didn't I say that?" But then I start to write about the experience and it's not so much an experience as a 'maintenance dose' - cos I've joined another group!

    Over 1000 Groups

    I've joined over 1000 groups and written only 75 stories, which is more than many people on here but it is still a really poor percentage.

    Do It Properly

    Story is a story. I could write plenty of them, I mean, I can write one or two sentences and hit "submit" but it's not a real story. On the other hand, there are groups where it's really hard to write more. Like those "I like...", yeah well, you like some...

    This Is My Hidden Shame.........

      - As my big brother pointed out to me about 3 days ago. I had 1000 experiences & had only written 40 stories. Mahahahahahaha! He was a bit "put out" with me. I had promised not to join any groups until I had written at least 250 stories.... Couldn't quite...

     That's all you need to do to join a group. Writing stories takes time and creativity...So far I have 3273 experiences and 720 stories. Gotta catch up..lol

    Good Intentions...

    One of the reasons I actually joined this site was to be able to be myself- open up & share aspects of myself I may not feel comfortable with otherwise; drawing me out of my "shell" & allow me to be more outgoing in the "real world"; share & practice my writing, receive feedback...

    Now I Wish

    I hadn't joined so many and instead just written one story at a time. I hate all these empty experiences!

    Group Writing

    I'm getting better though, i'd like to write a story for every group i've joined. Some groups lend themselves better to detailed stories than others.
