Default Re: Don't judge a story by its title!

I agree! (Even though I've never been in the creative writing section ) People spend a lot of time on their stories, and they could be interesting even though the title might not sound exciting to you.

Default Re: Don't judge a story by its title!

I agree a book shouldn't be judged by its cover, a story by its title, etc

But I for one don't do much reading in that section.

Plus, sometimes, it is human nature to mentally judge whether or not to visit that thread, read that book, etc by its title.

I am more likely to click on a suggestion or something that looks funny/adventurous than I am something about the Jonas Brothers or Miley Cyrus. I haven't read your stories, but I personally prefer comedy/adventure over drama/fantasy (although the occasional thriller is something I like). I like studying the history of wars too, but you don't really see many of those stories on WI, lol.

Default Re: Don't judge a story by its title!

I see your point, Crazysince95. It may have not been the best story you read, but maybe you could read and post, and give suggestions to the author on how to make it more interesting?

I agree, you never know what you could be missing out on if you choose to just a story solely on it's title. A lot of great stories might have somewhat boring titles so it's good to take a look at them all anyway (: After all, a title cannot possibly tell fully what a story is about.

Right. The title isn't a picture of the story itself.

Default Re: Don't judge a story by its title!

I kind of agree.....

But......I have a big time limit on the computer (hour and a half a day) and if I see a story that I don't think would exactly interest me, then why would I look at it? if it says in the title that it's something that I don't like, then I'm not going to spend my time reading it just so that it can have views.

Plus, I dont' really go into the creative writing section. I'm more interested in other things besides stories.

If you don't have a lot of time, that's fine. I'm just suggesting this to the people who are on, and in the creative writing section 24/7.
