  1. It depends, though one of the factors that can change things for me is knowing what type of story it is. Most of the time I prefer a good hook early, but there are enough stories I've loved where the hook doesn't pop up until much later. Lovecraft for instance had a bad habit of not establishing a real strong hook until halfway through some of his short stories for me.
  2. So how important is a quick and early hook in a story to you?
  3. I always appreciate a good plot twist, and while I don't generally mind misdirection, it depends on whether the actual twist is good or not. Sometimes, I feel the misdirection is more interesting.
  4. Though on the subject of plot twists, I do find it a cool experience to have your expectations toyed with, so while I can still appreciate them on a "the author did something really cool there" level it does feel like something is irreversibly lost. At least with twists that actually have business being one.
  5. I know right?
  6. Ended up watching the two videos you posted in Fynn's VMs. Pretty damn motivating =P
  7. Well just PM me or you can use the Visitor Message if you want. Hell, I don't even mind if you want to hijack the thread a bit. There isn't mch conversation going on in there anyway, so I'm cool with it.
  8. Ah, I see. I mainly ask because sometimes I want to respond to individual points in your top games topic but not hijack the thread, and I do like the semi-realtime back and forth of a text chat.
  9. Yeah, I'm not much of a chat person. It's easier for me to do conversations when I have a moment to mull over my response as opposed to real time type shenanigans. I've annoyed more than a few friends for taking hours to respond to texts and IM.
  10. Discord is a chatting software, and has replaced EoFF's IRC channel earlier this year. It's taken a lot of the internet by storm recently, and EoFF has a server. It's the rightmost option in the Frontsite, Forum, Blogs ... toolbar.
