Dear People Who Actually Read These Things,
Not all of my work is good and not all of it you are going to necessarily like. That's okay. This is mostly because I write for a specific audience depending on the fandom: the nostalgia seekers, in the case of Disney, Phineas and Ferb, and those canons in the that vein; video game lovers, in the case of Halo and Mass Effect; and fans of older teen/adult (depending on the canon) cartoons in the case of Family Guy and shows in that vein. (I have many more genres under my belt of course, but this is naming a few examples)
When it comes to reviews I would prefer if they are signed, that way conversation can exist between the reviewer and myself.
I am going to be completely honest I am not a reader. I am a writer. When it comes to collaborations and forums I tend to stay away from them, mostly because a lack of communication and difference in artistic direction result in the product going nowhere. As a rule, I do not do RP forums, I do not collaborate (unless it's something that is interesting to both myself and the other writer, something that we can both commit time to, and something that will actually turn out somewhat decent) and I keep to myself a lot of the time. I have a small group of friends on here that I talk with, but that's about it.
As a side note I believe that phrases such as R&R (which are almost always followed by an exclamation point) and "Don't Like, Don't Read" are annoying, redundant, immature and the sign that this is a bad story. If you have to tell people to R&R, which is read and review, that sends a message of desperation to me. Sure, you are looking for constructive criticism, but you don't have to be so obvious about it. As for the "Don't Like, Don't Read" this is going to happen anyway. But it is also, in itself, a paradox and a rather stupid one. Basically you are saying that you only want people who like the story to read it, which makes sense, you don't want people wasting their time, but how are they, the readers, going to know if they like it unless they read it? They won't. In other words, don't do it. Because I will take your advice and simply not read, and as a consequence will not review.
Now, I suppose it is only fair that I tell you a little bit about myself.
I'm a cartoon guy, to put it simply if it's Disney, Looney Tunes, MGM, or Hanna Barbara I'm all over it. That said I have my preferences. In addition to the nostalgic stuff I also enjoy contemporary works aimed at older audiences such as Family Guy and Futurama, however Cleveland Show and American Dad! I am not huge fans of. Ironically I believe that shows like Disney Channel, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network are appalling, this is in part due to age, being in college, and in part due to the belief that the people in charge of the aforementioned studios think that modern children between 5 and 12 are complete and total idiots.
I am also a video game person. I have a specific appreciation for the RPG (also ironic considering that I do not like RP forums, but that is irrelevant) like Elder Scrolls, Mass Effect, Fallout, Red Dead Redemption, which is technically a free roaming game and not really role playing, and other games similar to it. If it were to list them all it would be incredibly annoying and defeat the purpose of this.
