Are you actually going to criticize Eric, and this site, because the rest of us, authors that is, aren't posting anything to the site right now?

There are some who have quit writing for various reasons but the rest of us ARE writing. I have a boatload of unfinished stories if you need proof of that.

Eric teases me about my inability to finish lately, as do others. I've made no secret of the fact that I am writing but unable to finish my stories.

If you believe that writing a story - I'm not even asking for a good, or even a long, story here - Why don't you try opening a word processor and publishing one of your own. I'm sure we'd all love to read it.

HeHe. I detect heavy levels of sarcasm, and an undercurrent of truth/hopefulness.

Your lack of structure permits me to tear your meaning apart... no, it obligates me to. I am going to edumaguess that you meant this: "When was the last time anyone, besides yourself, of course, posted anything on this site?" Which has many interpretations even in that state.

First, let me call the sky blue. The most recent posts are bold and have the time-stamp. There are very few reasons that are likely for you to not have known or understand this.

Next, as of the moment of my submission, this post will have been the last time anything has been posted. Technically the moment you posted was the last time someone posted anything. And to further this, everyone who has ever posted, or is going to post, will be the "last time" someone has posted "anything."

Then, to which you refer "anything" means everything and nothing. You are not looking for anything specific. You don't even exist without a reference point. Make a reference too vague and the parameters will not be able to define anything. Without definition you are unable to get anywhere or do anything. So your question means everything, but especially nothing.

Now to implied connotation, to which text is raw and easily interpreted in a multitude of ways. When you phrase a question, you must take care to set parameters which limit the result of answers. By not doing so, I can easily interpret your question to imply "No one is submitting stories, or interesting posts except for you Eric" which is statement. Because I interpreted your question as a redundant question, it adds fire to the fuel. Or if I interpreted your question as a naked truth/honest question (only plausible for myself if I accept that you aren't smart enough to look at forum for that information yourself) then I would reply simply as "Just check the forums, the timestamp is next to the post."

So which is it?

OR, SilentSadist, you could remember two facts:

1. English is not a precise language to begin with, and is rife with nuance and unspoken meaning,

and

2. English is spoken by humans, who are not computers, and tend not to enclose their queries within enumerated logic boundaries, instead expecting that the person to whom they are communicating will have the good sense to have learned to interpret meaning through context and common sense.  (I realize common sense is a dwindling asset in the world today, but still...)

The simple fact is that the question being asked was very clear and distinct, and it is extremely disingenuous of you to imply otherwise.  The question asked was, "When was the last time a story was posted by someone other than Eric Storm?"  Forum posts are NOT the focus of this website, thus it would be extremely unlikely that the poster would give a damn about when a forum post was last made by someone other than me.

Frankly, it's a perfectly valid question, and I don't quite get why the poster is being ripped upon for asking it.  The actual answer to the question is December 3 of last year, when Grnknite last updated Creating Prime.  Personally, I find this just as disheartening as the original poster does.  (Assuming the original poster finds this disheartening, and wasn't merely asking out of curiosity... a concept neither of you seem to have considered...)

Having said that, if you all know an author you'd like to see posting here, invite them over for a visit.

And really, folks... let's not be ripping on people for asking questions that have no negative intention toward any specific individual.  Don't dump on them for YOUR guilty conscience.

Regards,
Eric Storm

PS:  SilentSadist:  You corrected the original poster's sentence in the following way: "When was the last time anyone, besides yourself, of course, posted anything on this site?"   Just one problem:  You've used incorrect grammar to do so.  "Yourself" is reflexive, and should only be used if "you" has already been used in the sentence, which it had not been.  Oops.  If you're going to lambast someone about how they choose to speak... perhaps you should make sure you're getting it right in the first place.

I for one did enjoy reading SilentSadist reply. LOL I also agree with Eric a question was asked, it could have been asked in a different way so it did not sound so blunt. Well maybe blunt is not the right word. ????? But the guy should be able to ask a question if he wants.

SilentSadist, I read some of your poems and well poems are not my cup of tea. You went into some good detail in your reply, you may want to try your hand at writing a story and seeing how it fly's. I mean if you have the time and if you can think of a good story line. Try a short story maybe first.

Yeah, sorry about post #232. I let out unwarranted steam. I apologize to Joshb25 as well as the rest of the community.

I also choose not to venture near the literary creation because as the master has pointed out, my own grammatical structure isn't well founded. I'm pretty sure the last time I ever wrote anything that I felt proud of was before 2008.

Freon22:  I'm asking this question to you not sarcastically, but in all honesty:  HOW could that question have been asked differently, still request the same information, and be "more polite"?  I've actually sat and looked at it for a few minutes without coming up with an alternative.

The problem isn't really the way the question was worded, it's just that asking a question of this type points to an unpleasant truth, and people don't like it when others do that.  There's not really a way I know of to do this in a completely "tactful" manner.  It's kind of like asking, "When was the last time you changed the cat litter?"  There's an inherent criticism in the question itself, no matter how you word it.  Let's face it:  If people were posting regularly, the poster probably would not have felt the need to ask the question.

I personally still feel it's a perfectly legitimate question, however... probably because I'm hoping it'll guilt some of the writers into actually posting something.

Eric Storm

PS:  To Jefferson:  If you want to both finish those stories, AND get yourself back in a writing mode, you are going to have to simply force yourself to write endings.  Yes, I know, you won't like doing it.  But I have found that when I get stuck not being able to write on something, I just have to grit my teeth, sit down, and force my way through it.  No, the story's never as good that way as it is when I'm inspired, but something is better than nothing, and frankly, once you're back in the groove, you can go back and fix it, if it bugs you enough.

I had to think about this for a while and you may have a good insight here.

There are some good authors here and some very good stories. Some of these stories I really got into and keep hoping that the author will write more on the story. I know that it is the authors creation and I want to make sure that you know that I never think badly of the author. I will make a post telling the author how good I feel their story is hoping they will write more. If they do or don't it is up to them and I respect whatever they decide to do with their story.

But that does not change the fact that a good story that is unfinished leaves you or I should say me feeling. I don't know I guess its like having a question that is unanswered knowing that someone has the answer. No no maybe it is more like unfinished sex, it is great while you are doing it but then the great ending just does not happen. You can not say that while you were doing it or reading that it was not good, fun, great it just that its unfinished. ;-) Now does that make me weird?

What, equating stories to sex on a predominantly sex stories website?  Why would that make you weird?  LOL

And the thing is, had the question been directed at a specific author, in the tone of, "When was the last time you posted anything for us to read, Jefferson?"  (I love picking on Jefferson, can you tell?  big_smile ), then that would be a flame, because it would have been aimed at someone.

It is entirely possible, while the initial reaction from authors is to see it as criticism of themselves, that this could be more of a site-specific criticism.  "Why haven't you invited any currently active authors here for us to read?"  (The answer to this is, of course, because I don't know any.)  It all depends on your frame of mind as you read the question.

Thank you Eric I was not criticizing anyone or anything I happen to be a very big fan of a lot of the stories on this site and was just asking when or if ever there are going to be more as for my grammatical prowess the person who so decided to criticize me for asking a basic question can kiss my ass I don't have to use the correct punctuation or spelling or anything else I don't want to just to make you happy thank you good day

The reason to use proper spelling/grammar/punctuation isn't to make someone else happy.  It's to make yourself properly understood.

So I was looking through your stories and I saw one titled "Artifacts" (yeah, I know it should be italicised or underlined at the very least, but I'm on my phone, so quotations will have to do.) I read the description and then realised that it was the same story I had read twice on that OTHER site. The other site shall remain nameless.

Well, you haven't yet read Illicit Reunions, Where the Maiasaurs Roam, Caught in the Web, Cruel Timing, A Mother's Slavery, or myriad of short stories...

Pick one.

No, I have not.  Please report them to XNXX's moderators for copyright violation.  I think I have already attempted to deal with that person before, unsuccessfully.

If I understand your question correctly, you're asking why David had to keep his status as a demighost a secret from other people.

If you haven't already, reading chapter 4 of book 1 should clear it up for you.

Oh boy, this is rich. OK siteslike.com is a website that once you put a url in to the searchbar, it gives you 50 or so different websites that are like it. Anyways, it has wolfpub.org listed as "Food and Drink > Restaurants and Delivery". I just thought you would find it as amusing as I did

If you never got an answer, then something got lost in transit, because I answered you.

Yes, fanfiction is allowed.  In fact, if you go back to the "Become a Pub Author/Artist" page, you'll see the few things that are not allowed here.

Welcome. My name is Eric Storm.

I have been writing erotica since 1997. I started writing because I was bored with the content I saw online, and I had the insane notion that I could write something better. My first work, CAMP: Ron's Journey was... well-received, shall we say, and I was encouraged to continue writing. To date, I have finished eleven novels, three novellas, and two dozen short stories.

As a writer, I tend toward fantasy and science fiction. I do like to write about taboo sexual situations in my stories, and my favorite of those is incest.

I enjoy talking with my fans. If you have something to say about my work, please do not hesitate to leave a message on the forum, send me an email, or contact me on one of my IMs:
