    And so… the final word is written. 

    It’s been a pleasure. 

    Please be well.

    Last Wrap of Stories


    Here's a list of the last batch of stories in the pipeline.

    Most of them are already written—but require that poor editor's touch.

    247. Say SO! (Spike and Fluttershy; simple erotic fluff)

    248. Land of Satin (Shrunk Spike and Rarity; goes as expected)

Which Do You Prefer? · 9:50pm June 26th

Longer chapters more spaced apart?


Smaller chapters more frequently released?

Six one half a dozen other

I perfer longer chapters.

Mostly because that is how i work :derpytongue2:

long chapters, 10k maximum

Hmm, they both have merits. I think whichever produces the best quality work is the best, but that can depend on the writer.

I am open for both. But even short chapters are hard when real life keeps licking off any free time...

Whichever works best for you.

Hmm, I like both, but I think longer chapters spaced more apart is my main choice.

Longer, meaty chapters when merited.

I honestly don’t mind either as long as. Chapters keep coming out I don’t care if i I have to wait long for one chapter or a short time for a short chapter doesn’t really matter to me

Longer chapters

I prefer both to be honest. But whatever suits you B.

We take em all here, but I like a nice 3-7k update personally


A perfect setup for me is something like:

  • chapters up to 5K words
  • released weekly (or even every few days)

But to be honest, having consistent update frequency is much more crucial than chapter size. It's simply hard to get back to the story when the last update happened months ago. On more than a few occasions, I had a hard time remembering what the story was about and had to re-read it when the author brought the story back from the Twilight Zone after months of inactivity.

Either way works really, whatever is better for you

I like both, but it depends.

One is great to keep tension and hype for a long period of time, that is paid by a long continuation

The other is great for a reading marathon, where one wants more and more without having to wait.

It depends on the mood of both author and reader, as well as what's best for the nature of the fic/story  

Excellent answer.

Thanks to everyone for answering! You helped informed my set-up.
~ Yr. Pal, B

I don't sit down to read all the time, so when I do, I like something I can sink my teeth into.

fwiw, I like longer chapters with weekly updates. And cake. And winning lotteries. But longer chapters for certain. :rainbowlaugh:

I would prefer longer chapters more spaced apart.
