I can really relate with every single word you wrote. I am currently in the same position and reviewing for my submission
money. It doesn't go up very fast BUT the writing on this site is
so good; it really is. But then I get lazy. I just want to read; don't want to review. After 8 hrs. of doing that yesterday, I woke up!
Hey! Gotta pay to play so today am doing more reviews. Good

Well, here's a sixer for such a creative, funny and soul revealing write! I have read many essays about the FanStory process. The good, bad and ugly of the addiction. Yours is the best by far. The REALLY GOOD THING about FanStory is the writing discipline it forces upon you. If it weren't for this site, my writing would be much more sporadic. The more you write, the better you'll be. Loved this!

A realistic analysis of probably a whole load of fan story addicts! But, think of it this way, by submitting it means you have created a new piece of work, rewarding to you and others. I agree it is addictive, but it actually gets you writing more and the inspiration must be there. You have written a good commentary on the subject and it was most enjoyable. Faye

    Hi Thanks for your review on this. This was written back in my first month or so. I waited until I improved a bit before posting it:-) And I agree it does make one write more...and learn and both of those things are invaluable.

I feel your pain and know the sickness far to well myself. Really, I sometimes review so much that I have forgotten what a book actually is. Speaking of reviewing, using your credit card to post is a sign of trouble. I have only done so once when I first joined and that was only for $25.00. You do realize that the top twelve would cost you 100 bucks or more. Funny, very true for many of us essay, but don't use your credit card. Groceries are more important.

    I don't put any 'real money' in any more...I realized it was getting to be a dangerous thing to do.
    I work quite a bit in days jobs to pay the bills....so don't have a lot of time to review...so now, I post less and write more...not a bad balance, really.
    Thanks for the comments:-)

I had to laugh, as I read this through and thought 'Wait! is this about me?' - You're right of course, it is very addictive and those little red signs are truly compelling.

Hilarious, and oh so true. You must be a fairly new member because this sort of addiction wears off with time. We all, well, nearly all, experience the highs and lows of learning here. However I've been here three years and still won't publish prose because I'm still learning grammar, and English is my native language. Happy writing and keep the sense of humor handy. Kenny

Yeah, you know you've got it bad when you resort to
posting a piece about posting. And we've all done it.
We all come to this moment of realization.
I'm hooked! you say. And you know it to be true.
Let a single day go by when the reviews aren't piling
up, and you're seeing pink elephants. Eventually, you'll
even post something about pink elephants. We all do.

Peace, Lee

Padu... This is a well written point of view on how one can get "sucked into" being on FanStory. Always writing and posting. Reviewing enough in order to post and promote (I can't afford to purchase member pumps).

Trust me, whether you live in Germany, Australia, Taiwan or the United States, the red reviews will pop up and be on there for you, waiting for you to enjoy., John

    Hi John. Thanks for the read and review. Yup, I don't use real money any more...the first few weeks were bad enough!
    I review and then post what I can afford. I write a lot of stuff, and not all of it goes on the site.
    And well...the time change thing...you are right..the reviews are there when I wake up..

If you are really interested in reading a book on grammar, I can suggest one which was written by a member of this very community, JM daSilva. It is not only extremely helpful and informative, but teaches you in a very unique and fun way. It has helped me out immensely, and I think the Kindle edition is only like $2.99 on Amazon.com.

Anyhow, here is the link. Just highlight it, then right click it, and click "open in a new widow", and it will take you right to the info on the book. I highly recommend it!

http://www.amazon.com/Spagtionary-Vol-salacious-Dictionary-Errors/dp/1484809025

Good work, padu, and I could relate to what you said here one-hundred percent!

    Hi Dean. I will check this out. I have a tons of grammar books(I teach ESL)...simple grammar is okay. It is the clauses within clauses within description. And of course commas, whose rules seem to change every few years or so.
    I appreciate the heads up:-)

Hi Padu, This brought some smiles of understanding and if you think you have difficulties, just think of us poor suckers down here in Australia... Sleeping while North America is awake! That's where the majority of reviewers are. Fortunately I have a few friends in New Zealand as well who are awake at the same time, and as for the rest of the world, I really can't keep up. Once I had a German friend, a young carer, and she was very stilted and 'proper'. Eventually she went back to Germany; so I see your difficulty in answering the phone, LOL. Don't despair, the urgency for reviews will wear off! LOL Giddy
