Yeah.... I'm Out. · 2:39am
I'm not working on fics anymore. No, it's not a popularity thing, it's not an "out of ideas" thing, none of that.
There are a great many reasons, all of which are very minor to me. Combined, however, they nullify any point in me making fics.
Here's just a short few:
- This site is absolutely FLOODED with new fics, day in, day out. My chapters are a month+ apart.
- My main story has revolved around cliche ideas. My new story didn't; it was entirely unique (though utilising human-in-Equestria, which is cliche, it was unique in why he was there and for what purpose), but that proved unloved by all, so it's safe to assume none here see my non-cliche work as crap. Which is fair enough; I never claimed to be a good author, just wanted to try my hand at it. It was fun to do, after all.
- My main focus is art, which I am heavily behind in anyways; there's just too much on my plate at a time.
- The majority of the super popular fics on here are either clop or ripoffs of other work. Sure, there's a very rare few that are almost entirely unique, and very well written, but I have no wish to stoop to such levels for so little as an increased audience. A good friend of mine had an incredible story, which was both unique and amazingly written, but sadly, even though he merely desired to bring enjoyment to as large an audience as possible, very few bothered to give him a chance. He didn't want popularity, just to entertain a large audience.
There's many more reasons, obviously, and I don't have quite the way with words to explain myself in-depth, but that's it, I'm not continuing my stories. I'll still pop in from time to time to read others' work, of course. After all, this site hosts some of my favourite stories.
If anyone really enjoyed my stories a great deal, browse around the site, it won't take long to find someone who's written pretty much the same thing, but far, far better.
