I could probably tell you who wrote it. There’s at least 8 authors I can recall this person saying same thing. Opinionated, narrow-minded soapbox preacher.

Actually I didn't really recognize the name of the reader...but they said the story was going down the drain and was not their cup of tea and they couldn't read anymore. That's insulting and rude. To say any author's work is going down the drain in a public place where anyone can see before the story is complete is like saying hey your ideas and thoughts suck. .This person did not need to say that in a chapter comment. 

Oh yeah BTW jp....love you bub

I've had people hate characters, not like endings ... whatever. I can't and don't try to please everyone. I write my characters and my story.

 

If people want to say that in public ... if it's helping their ego to run down an author...well it's gonna happen. Sure it would be nicer if they just wandered away but that's not how a lot of people operate. You need a backbone and thick skin to write and post in public.

 

I've had people PM me to tell me that they can't read on.. and their reasons.. those are nicer.  These people I dont worry about. I am not changing what i've written to please one or two. You need to write your story for your reasons.  Don't let one or two comments like that get you down!!

Thank you bub....That's what I was trying to say the whole time but I'm seeing red right now because you know how defensive I can get of friends

It’s more annoying that this person isn’t even an author. The blood, sweat, and tears put into writing. It’s free to the reader. Something for them to remember.

I love you too buddy! 💋

Depending on who the Author is, they might be trying to single their friends to do the same. A form of blackballing.

 

Also, had someone post a comment, in my Aeris - Guardian Force story that they were getting off the bus because,  paraphrasing, "I mixed magic with technology." I kindly thanked him for reading and reminded him the next story he wanted to read, that "the bus" had a "route map" at the beginning of the story, in which he could tell where it would go.

The author I'm referring to is talented, he has some grammatical errors in his stories and I was editing for him for a while. I'm no longer editing because he is actually doing better. We still brainstorm all the time via text about his storylines... And if they read other of his stories, they would see he isn't a rainbows and unicorns guy. He isn't afraid to kill off a main character. He writes the words, the story goes where it wants. I'm the same way in my writing. The idea is mine, the words are mine, but the story writes itself, I simply transpose it to written word.

was it a story about Atlantis??? 

Science Fantasy story about Humans venturing into space, and running into another race that uses Magitech. It's one of my Ongoing projects, but I have a lot invested in it. Kinda-sorta stopped posting because of lack of interest from Readers. It's SciFi...

Nowhere near finished, and it has two spin-off single chapter stories as part of a series. I've worked on the next chapter, some, but I've been focusing on another project that has more active readership.

I remember, :) and that scene is partially done. Well, actually there's two versions of the said scene. One that I can post directly on Nifty, as it's more straight-up porn and the other is more written for an on-going story. Both versions are not 100% yet.

there are authors on this site that everyone says their stories are the cat's meow and everyone needs to read them. the comments just gush, to the point of orgasms sometimes. these stories/authors seem to get lots of recognition, whereas other authors, who i find more enjoyable  are not as well received. i can't read any of their stories--they seem all the same story just different names.  i've never felt the need to tell the author that in public. i have done it once, in a PM. if i feel a strong need to comment/review on a story and it is a criticism, i try to find something good to say to. now a days, i'm finding i harder and harder to comment on things because i'm getting slammed when i do.

 

to me it boils down to; is what i'm saying, good/bad helpful or hurtful?

Idea? Do a story review for the author you like. That might give them more recognition they might not have otherwise received. Also, I used to send Dark, now Carlos, questions for the Ask an Author, specifically for authors I enjoy but who slip under the radar.

those are the only authors i do reviews for, the ones  i like. to the point of rereading old stories i liked to review them.  same with comments. if i don't like the story, i just stop reading. for awhile i was trying to write a story review a day, and a comment on every chapter i read. i'm not doing that much anymore
