Maybe you should think of it as the opposite. Maybe they think your writing is so good they don't think you would need a "pitty post". Maybe they just assume they don't need to post because they know others will.

Default Re: What should I do? :(

One thing you should do is not give up. Here are some of my tips:
  1. PM your friends links to your stories. If they're your friends, they'll read it.
  2. Like others have said, put a link in your siggie.
  3. Every now and then, post on your profile saying, "Please come read my story, la-da-da......." and include a link.
I hope these tips help!

That would be spamming, please don't do it.
Thank you,
Webberlily

1. PM the people on your contacts list. They'd gladly read it. . .same as above.

That will be considered spamming, don't do it.
Thank you,
Webberlily


2. Link to it. On your profile homepage,link to it and in your signature. And, only on your profile, add a link as a VM
3. Include pictures. Some of the members here are very young and can't comprehend some stories. Attractive pictures and titles will catch people's eye and make them want to know what they are for.
4. Foreshadow. Make the first sentence of you story large, and interesting. For example:

It was a dark and stormy night.
The two best friends were playing a game. . .
and then more story events happen.

*It has to make them want to read the story*

Default Re: What should I do? :(

try coming up with a catchier name. make announcements in the title every once and a while, such as something like: NEW!!! CHAPTER 3 JUST POSTED!!! that will catch people's attention. put a link in ur siggie. advertise your story on another person's, like: "Wow, great job! I can't wait to read more! Hey, guys, while we're waiting, why don't you come check out my story? here's the link: ___".

This is against the rules.
Thank you for not doing it.

and also: watch out what you say on this thread about other people's stories, because some of them may be reading this thread and what you're commenting about their stories. let's all play nice.

Don't give up.
Keep writing. Ignore the number of comments. Just because you don't get comments doesn't mean you should stop writing. I bet if you gave a short excerpt to your friends or family they would enjoy it. It's okay, 4 comments doesn't mean people don't like your writing. There's still a big world out there and I bet there are a lot of people who would enjoy your writing outside of WI.

First of all DO NOT GIVE UP!
Maybe advertise your stories in your signature, or let your friends know that you made a story and politely and not annoyingly ask them to visit it if they have time? But be sure not to spam them with tons of messages! (;

Default Re: What should I do? :(

I've dealt with the same situation. EXACT situation. I have a few tips for you.

1: Make your title sound interesting, and add some info.

Ex.
Before - My Story

After - My Super Awesome Amazing Story - A story about a WI user writing a story! - Written by Hollipup

2: Post when a new chapter is up.

3: Maybe add an intro, a cliffhanging intro. It will make people want to keep reading.

4: Leave a PM to the people who posted and said they like your story when you've added a new chapter. (IDK if it's considered spamming, but if it's not I'd recommend it!)

5: Definetly put a link in the sig. Maybe even in a spoiler. In a spoiler because (in my opinion), people feel tempted to click on spoilers, and it has a better chance of being noticed!

6: Always remember, even if you don't have many replies, doesn't mean people haven't read it. Take a look at your views! Maybe it will make you feel better.
