Yeah, it is! There's a link to it in the original post on here -- it's been dead for a few days now since we opened up this thread.
found it and posted a little something. Okay, maybe not so little... LOL! Thanks again, Courtney, for this thread. Great, great stuff!
That was awesome, thank you. I'll edit the welcome note to include a bit about reading that, since everyone raves about your reviewing -- I'm sure the new kids will appreciate it more than anything.
Also, I loved the bit about the fact that you smoke a lot during your reviews. I can't count how many of my hand-written LBLs (it helps me focus to print them out and mark them up) have cigarette burns in them. My binder, too -- it's coated in ash and nail polish. I smoke more (cigarettes) during writing and reviewing than any other time.
Haha! Me too. Thanks for adding it. Appreciate that. I always try to help.
Thanks again for this, Courtney. Now I know what LBL means.
Before Courtney wrote this essay, I always thought LBL meant "Labia Biting Lesbian". So for every review I gave, I included an in-the-text BDSM lesbian sex scene. I'm glad she wrote the essay because, quite frankly, I was running out of ideas.
It must have been exhausting to be you, Utah, always trying to create something sexy out of stories by such disturbed minds.
He was born with the magic to make everything about twat. Unfortunatly, it's vagina vs. vagina deathmatches in a steel octagon. VMMA (vaginal mixed martial arts) is growing in popularity, but there are suprisingly few women (or post-op transexuals) willing to risk their cooters for the ultimate prize: a belt made of stolen foreskin.
It didn't have to be stolen. I know this mohel that is a bit strapped for cash.
And this is oddly perfect for a intro thread.
A couple of days ago, I posted my first submission, "Stenography" (the one about the wolf and pigs,) got a sufficient number reviews, and just now deleted it. Is there any kind of decorum around how long you should leave your story up? I've seen some that have been there since last November and some that say "Don't need anymore reviews," but the file is still there. What's the deal? I thought I might be able to just remove the file itself but keep the review thread, but no. Then I thought I could just replace the file with a blank one, but decided against it.
There is no set rule on that. You just take it down when you feel like it, if ever. If I remove mine, I replace the file with a word doc that says, "thanks for checking, this has been deleted" or something and then copy and paste into the description.
I thought about doing it that way. Probably will in the future so there'll be a record of the reviews.
I leave the file up because I've been switching computers a lot, so it's nice to have a backup copy stored somewhere online. Until recently I simply left it up without specifying anything, but then I got reviews on my oldest stories, so I erased the synopsis and description and said I had everything I needed.
If you want a online back up copy, and these are computers you can install programs too, I would suggest the whole google drive thing. Lets you have your copy on the hard drives and online, and they are all sinked up. https://drive.google.com/start?continue=https://drive.google.com/%23#home
If someone wants to save this and re-use it, go ahead, but I'm quitting the site and asking them to close my account so I'm not sure if this will still be here once my account is shut down.
Best I can tell, it'll stay as is. No worries.
Courtney, you don't need to do that.
We need females. It gets weird without females.
It gets weird with females, too. I should know. Weirdos.
Guys just talk about sex but on here it turns to sex fantasies about eachother. It doesn't stop us when there are no females in the mix. It's just like prison. Ryan could tell ya.
Girls are weirder though.
I checked, turns out there are still females around.
I think she's talking about me. Not cool, Avery. I'm not a girl, I'm just sensitive.
Lots of girls around these parts.
Oh, I get it now, she was supposing that we all have female parts. Hmm, clever.
She's calling us pussies. It's the nicest thing she has ever said to me.
Well you are what you eat.
I, also, have frequented many Chinese restaurants.
The poo poo platter? I don't think that was on the menu sir.
You obviously weren't very adventurous in your youth. Wait a minute. You were in the Navy! Don't even act like...
No dice good sir. Adventurous is....I don't know going on safari and having hyenas try and kill you, putting from the rough is not.
Are you saying that you've been hunted by hyenas, or that putting from the rough is old hat to you and no longer gets your blood pumping?
Putting from the rough? He's talking about a fistfull of rough being shoved down his throat and then asking for more. Which is something I totally endorse.
Why is it everything in this forum involves some sort of homoerotic slant? No, it would not now or ever interest me. I am shocked women even find men attractive, let alone other men. This makes me wonder about some of you.....
Being hunted by animals however is on my bucket list. When I die, I either want an exhausted body, who has done everything, surrounded by loved ones. Or I want a short, brutal death early on that would make a great made for TV movie.
Nope. You get cancer.
We should make a how will you die thread.
This is what I see for you Mr. Howie.
Ahh, to go out like my hero, David Carradine. I'll probably be in the closet, dressed up like Wonder Woman with the magic lasso looped over the chrome closet-rod and then wrapped around my throat, forcing me to tell the truth and to do anything I tell myself to do, while furiously masturbating to Lit Reactor threads about cake and compliments.
Howie - if you die any other way, I will be disappointed.
*retches with delight*
*Eyes Utah with contempt.*
*smiles. draws back the bolt on the hyena cage*
Here we go!
"YOU SON OF A...."
*Fights viciously against the animal. Loses and then shares a bottle of whiskey with it.*
I want an illustration of Howie Wowie™ in that very predicament. Or a short film. Yeah. A short film. But instead of Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman, it is Monica Bellucci. And playing the role of Howie is Bryan Cranston.
Just wanted to say a quick thanks to Courtney for this. This is my first post, and despite having written random garbage for years, my first real attempt at workshopping any fiction. I imagine this little guide here saved me a good few hours of poking around aimlessly and wondering how you guys do things.
So thank you! It's much appreciated. Being new anywhere is always a tad shitty, and a little user-friendliness of this kind tends to go a long way.
