My name's Sam, and I'm an addict

For me, writing is addictive. I've been writing in a journal everyday since I was 14. I'm not complete without at least writing in that and meditation everyday. 

 

As much as I can see the appeal, I've found that I'm just not disciplined enough to write a journal.  Maybe if I was I wouldn't write fiction though, so I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

I understand what you're saying. For me, writing has other important purposes. It has always been therapy. So I don't turn to self-harm. So if journal, poetry, writing note to friend. Just the process I couldn't live without.

Yes. If I don't write something every day, I feel lost.

 

As jp, I use writing as a form of Therapy, and explained a bit more of this over in the club. It helps. I share only a fraction of what I write. LIke I have some Nifty Level Smut, that I have not shown to anybody, at all.

Love that phrase. But I get what you mean. I've written some, too. 

 

Well if it's good enough for the newly minted Promising Author, it's good enough for me.   Maybe my darker side should be allowed to escape :)

Nifty was my first introduction to gay fiction, and yeah, there's a wide range of stuff out there :)

I'll admit, I love my erotica as much as the next guy, and I read more stories on Nifty than I care to admit. I came to GA via Nifty, as I was following an Author to see if they finished a story, here, that they had posted there. (Sadly, they hadn't and that person is no longer active.) I've written some spank material, that I've thought of posting, not here but Nifty, but I'm self-conscious of what I write. I mean, I wonder if people like what I post here, and I just imagine if they would like the Porn I post... or would I even want to know if they like said porn!

 

I will say, I am surprised about some of the older GA stories, and how graphic in descriptions they can be. Like the year 2010 postings, several of those are Nifty Level.

So, I haven't checked this, but has GA evolved a lot from when it started?

I'm relatively new here. But just from reading stories, posted over the years, I would have to say Yes.

I think it's the quality of author. There's nothing wrong with Nifty. However; I think a little restraint brings mystery. For me, can be more erotic than wham-bam. Not too many stories on Nifty with actual plot.

i've only been on GA for a little over a year. it was 6 months before i venture outside the stories area. i had so much time to read.i think the earliest story was from 2008. i'd never read a Nifty story until 3 months ago. lots PWOP there. the site i read before coming here, had even more than Nifty!  i think i have in my "manged content", stories i read, have read, and will read again (and again :P ), a good 275+ and have read but not saved another 150-200. yes i have no life. i think the LEVEL of writing has only improved. the newer stories are, guess for lack of a better word, polished. less grammar, spelling and plot hole mistakes.

I write all the time, sometimes going over four chapters at one time. lol I get up in the middle of the night to write a paragraph, go back to bed. I wake up after a dream, jump back on the old keyboard and start tapping out my nonsense. I tried my hand at poetry, not that I'm close to being a poet but wanted to see what I could do. It was all nonsense that only made sense to me. But that was okay, because I'm not a poet..hell...I'm barely an author. I have a vivid, dark, and sometimes disturbing imagination that allows me to drift away from the norm. I write gay fiction, not because the characters are gay, but because I love putting characters in places where others think they don't belong. I love the downtrodden. I root for the common man. I love the not so pretty boys who stick together, because they're  considered misfits, even by their own. I love ruggedly handsome men who have everyday problems. Former soldiers who are now just working class stiffs trying to make ends meet. As you can see, my post is long as hell, because I can't stop writing. 

 

I love the works of a very talent author on here who has at the beginning of a story a very interesting tidbit. Hypergraphia:  is a behavioral condition characterized by the intense desire to write. Forms of hypergraphia can vary in writing style and content. It is a symptom associated with temporal lobe changes in epilepsy, which is the cause of the Geschwind syndrome, a mental disorder.

 

I won't go so far as to say I have this condition, but I do have a compulsion to write. There was a time when I spent 18 hours a day burning up the keyboard.I would go to sleep, get up, eat, and then continue to write. I go to sleep with plots, setting, and characters in my head. The sad truth is...I'm not a very good author, but I believe I'm a hell of a storyteller. lol I can't stop. Maybe it's OCD. Who knows.

I understand you in this. I disagree that you can't write poetry. It was a voice well heard.
