With the help of the Simpsons, I've got something I need to get off my chest. I try to be a good member of the community. I comment, for the most part without heat, when I feel I've got an opinion. I try to blog regularly, although work, life, and interest sometimes get in the way. I make an effort to meet new members and offer welcome and assistance. I even let the sometimes annoying forums send me 40+ emails a day. (I've got to get around to disabling that feature.) There's always been one thing that I haven't done though.
I don't read your blog fiction. Short stories, fan-fiction, that whole 'gaMe' thing, I don't read any of them.
And it's not that I'm not interested. I am. Most of you are pretty talented writers and I enjoy reading about your various opinions and interpretations of the things I like. I have to assume that most of the fiction written is on par with that and at the very least interesting. It mostly boils down to time. I do have a more than full-time job and occasionally still like to actually play games. I feel like I spend more time here than I should already, so when a distraction arises it's usually all the reason I need to log out. Don't take offense, I just believe in being active when not gaming and reading unpublished fiction usually loses out to the real life I try to have.
Anyway, that's all I really wanted to say... I just sort of feel bad when people take the time to write something and I don't feel like I have the time to read it. Maybe I'll start. Small steps. One or two per night. They can't all be too long right?
