PostSubject: Long or short Posts?   Sat Jan 24, 2009 11:20 am

Its a debate ive had with friends on and off through the years... are long posts more descriptive because they are... wlel... more wordie? Or are short potst?

I personaly say short posts since they let each role player throw a twist into the plot line anr remark to every other sentence the opposite person says... liek in real life. It bugs me when they go on and on ang on and you have tothink for an answer to 6 consecutive statements or questions and in that time cant have your character do somethign to influnce the other - since the other person has already written whats happened!

.... made no sence in text but it does inmy mind :p

Any thoughts?

PostSubject: Long or Short? Sounds Dirty XD   Sat Jan 24, 2009 6:19 pm

I like both XD Sometimes I want to write alot, because I get really into it- and there's alot I want to get out at that moment. But then I like to also do short one's, so it gives the other person a c ahnce to react- and add in change. So either one, I enjoy <3 but I hate one liners XD lol.

I think it really depends on what the situation is. Obviously if the characters are seperated longs posts are better because what they're doing doesn't immediately affect the other characters. Also if there's not that much going on, putting up a long post to get the story closer to action of some kind I find to be very useful. When it's in the middle of action or conversation short ones make more sense as, like Angel said, you can reply in time like a real conversation, and during action every small movement could have drastic effects on what the other people would do. If you write down a whole fight scene yourself, it's like saying that the other person wasn't involved at all. Ok now I'm ranting a bit but that's just my 2 cents worth.
