Yet another account anniversary has passed, and so much has changed since then. Quit my old job, joined the Air Force, and now I'm sitting in a base. Still writing random things, though I don't usually post them.
         I wrote an essay about the questions "Who am I?", "What am I?", "What is my purpose?", and why people ask them. Along with giving some encouragement *Smile*.
 Self-Doubt and Identity  (E)
An essay on why people ask "Who am I?"
My poem (the only one I have in my portfolio) has been completely rewritten. A review said it was unrefined, so that was taken into account during the rewrite and it now has a regular rhyme scheme and a consistent meter.
 Humanity's Last Funeral  (E)
The funeral of the last human.
Yet another account anniversary has gone by! 6 years now! Wooo!

*Party* Happy Writing.Com account anniversary. *Party*

Wrote a new story:
 You Saved A Lot Of Lives Today  (E)
A short story taking place at the same time as "Who Will Save the Hero Now?".

It is a short story directly related to "Who Will Save the Hero Now?" in that it takes place at the same time in the same universe.
 Who Will Save the Hero Now?  (E)
A short story to give hope to those who have lost it.
Man, gone for 5 hours and I get 2 reviews? What happened? I win some contest on least reviewed writer or something?
(I wrote too much and had to break this into 3 pieces. *FacePalm*)

Finally, you can just post items on your Newsfeed and request reviews. Usually when folks do that, they offer something, but it's not required. If you do want to offer something, you could tell folks whoever does the best review in before (insert date) gets a MB. Though I don't think as a free membership you get to give a merit badge away for free every 30 days like paid members, but I could be wrong. You can try to send me one as a test and see if it wants to charge you the 10k. *Bigsmile* I'm happy to give instructions...and even reimburse you if you accidentally follow through and the way and send me one. You know, for educational purposes. *Think* *Angelic* *Bigsmile* *Laugh* ANYWAY, if you don't want to send a MB, you can offer like 5k to the best review or raffle off some GPs so everyone gets an equal chance. You'll probably get more reviews that way, but perhaps lower quality since folks aren't worried about being the "best" review. *Wink*

Do note that you only have 3 fans. That means that unless you have a bunch of folks who have clicked your Plus only once to set you as a favorite, which is private so none of us would know, you likely have very few folks who see your Newsfeed Notes. Refer back to that Community Newsfeed bit above. *Wink* If you want folks to see your posts, you need folks to click your Plus because very few people go to the Community Newsfeed regularly like maybe a handful out of the million+ members on this site. *FacePalm*

So, if you want fans, YOU need to go out and get them. Interact with others. As they get to know you, some will click your Plus. If you are helping explain something or greeting a newbie, you can even suggest they click your Plus so it's easier to find you in the future. Actually, if you click MY Plus twice, I pay all my new fans 10k. *Bigsmile* For your convenience, here's my tag, but no obligation to do so if you don't want to. *Wink* Schnujo is Late to Lannister
Anyway, like real life authors, if we don't have fans, no one reads our work, so I always recommend folks get fans if they ever post on the Newsfeed. Plus, a few folks, like myself, reward our fans from time to time. *Bigsmile* Richard ~ Shenanigans INC. and Adherennium Dr of Phoolishness do that. Again, no pressure. Check out their Notebook and see if you want to follow them. They are not only knowledgeable, but also generous and just good, fun folks. *Smile* And some folks will also fan you back when they see you've fanned them. *Wink*

I hope I've helped some. Maybe you just wanted someone to review another item or wanted to congratulate you on your reviews. If so, CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR REVIEWS! *Delight* *Party* *Laugh* I tend to be overly helpful. *Blush* But I mean well. *Angelic*
Thus why you need to fan dennis23468, Peremos. Then you can see his ads asking for people to post items for him to review. *Wink*
I've just edited an item in my portfolio:
 Who Will Save the Hero Now?  (E)
A short story to give hope to those who have lost it.

Got rid of the link in there to download the music file for the story. Wasn't sure if anyone even used it and I realized that not a lot of people are willing to download random things off the internet. Wasn't necessary anyways.

Edit: Oh right, also, 5th anniversary of my WDC account happened 15 days ago.

Happy late anniversary! Also, good job editing items in your port. I need to do that more. I tend to just write them and forget them...sometimes literally. It's not uncommon for me to get a review and I'm like, "What story is this?" *Laugh* I agree that most folks aren't going to download random internet stuff, nor should they. *Wink*
Here's to hoping it gets loads of views! Cheers!

Don't want to get banned for pointing this out or something, but I'm starting to think those "Please upgrade to premium to continue because of limited server resources" notifications when going beyond chapter 4 on interactives are a lie. I have three separate computers that I use this website on (one of which is on a completely separate wifi network). Only one of my computers has this problem, and coincidentally, it is also the computer I use this site most on, it also shares a network with one of the other 2 computers, so the wifi being bad is ruled out. My other 2 computers do not have this problem at all when trying to go beyond chapter 4 on interactives. My theory is that after a certain amount of time, WDC starts doing this on a per-IP address basis. I've been going back and forth with myself on this for a while and finally settled on that is what is happening.
Of course, I don't make say this to sound rude, I just think it is a little suspicious.
You think a business that advertises its products is suspicious?
No, I think that the possible lying is suspicious. I thought I had made that obvious.
Just wrote another short story. Probably my most emotional story yet. Here's to hoping it gets lots of views, cheers!

When you add a new item to your portfolio and you want people to read it, it helps to post a link with your announcement. It's hard to know which one of the items in your portfolio you refer to without checking each one. That extra work alone will keep most people from even trying.
Why is WDC giving me two different word counts on my short story? The one showing when I hover over the item in my "highlighted items" section says 500 words. But when I go into the item, and click the option on the top right, then click word count, it says 582 words. So, which is it?
I think she means actually writing it at the end. Many writers here do that, sometimes in a dropnote.
PiriPica is correct. There is no setting, the author types it at the end. A dropnote can be used or just type "Word Count: 582" at the end. Likewise for poems, Line Count: 12 or whatever.

The habit of adding word/line counts is a good one to start because most contests ask for them.
Thanks for the help. Learned something new. Also just learned what "nested quotations" is today.
Wow, that 4th year on WDC passed by really fast. Just got my Account Anniversary email.
How long do replies for review requests generally take? I'm a generally anxious person.
Well, they get 3 days to accept, but it depends on how often they are online. P.S. I just finished it. *Smile*
That prologue for the story I just wrote, I think I just proved to myself that I can write a creepypasta if I try. That writing was definitely above my usual writing level.
