no, why should anyone edit their experiences just to accommodate the television generation, with their "everything needs to be in 8 minute chunks" attitude to life?
Some of us actually shares the whote story so that people may understand our experiences better - shorting it down to a 2 or 3 line story doesn't quite give the same result.
It does if the person knows how to do it properly without it being a mumblejumble of the same sentences and meanings over and over.
Some people have alot of feeling and experiences inside them that they cannot form into physical words, they have no one to listen. Here, however, someone is always willing to read and help. Isn't this what EP is, at it's core? A place to experience and offer your experience as help in return.
I respect anyone who takes the time to articulate their thoughts and feelings exactly the way they want it heard and interpreted; the devil is in the details, and someone being vague makes me feel theyre a little dishonest or biased, tell me WHY you think the way you do, that takes time.
Maybe just the writing the story out is helpful to them, and sometimes in what they write helpful to others too
I must agree here. I'm a get it it point type if gal. If it's long- I won't read it.
They don't realize that not everyone wants to spend the time to sift through all of that. It might be "therapeutic" to write it all down, but other people just aren't going to read things that are really long and rambling.
then all they get is a heart or a troll haha
hmmm I kept my stories short hoping someone would ask questions but it never happened
Maybe they just have more to say? But it better be interesting and well-written if they want me to read the whole thing. :)
hahahaha.. but i like long stories too!
