What Do You Want to See?
So, I'm wondering what, if anything, you guys want to see here. I said in my comment, it's fun to have someplace to come to and talk about these things but sometimes it feels like throwing a party that nobody actually shows up to. I don't mind going to the trouble if there is going to be some participation and mutual enjoyment here, but without any contributions from anyone else, it seems sort of pointless. I'll probably move away from posting stories/challenges for the most part, unless it is some sort of special project like the joint story was, or if I feel like posting something of my own because hey, it's my blog ;). But the pattern seems to be that people don't comment on them, and may or may not be reading them. And most of you wind up simultaneously posting your stories on ff.net and I'm going to just go ahead and assume that readers of Han and Leia stories on ff.net and readers of the blog here have a 100% overlap. Think of it like if your friend emails you a picture, but you already saw it and commented on it on facebook. Then they get upset that you didn't say anything about the picture they emailed you, and you're like... but I already saw it and told you I liked it on facebook! It's just redundant.
I tried to get some conversation going before about whether or not Leia would marry for the Rebellion, and we got more comments than usual around here, but still not quite what it used to be. I've had some thoughts about going back to discussing things about writing in general, so maybe that would be of some interest to some of you, but I'm not sure. I'm also still holding out some hope that maybe at some point we will finally get some confirmation about who is going to be in this new movie and what it is going to be about. Especially if Han and Leia are going to be in it, I would expect that to spark some more interest. Possibly even if they aren't, though I'll admit that I'm going to be incredibly disappointed if they aren't. I mean, I'd have been disappointed either way, but I'd be especially disappointed if they'd been stringing us along since the entire thing was announced like a year-and-a-half ago, making us think that they were going to be in it. I'd have long since come to terms with it if they had told us back then!
Anyway, let me know if you guys have any ideas of what you want to see here and what you think you or other people might enjoy discussing. Again, the challenges were a fun distraction, but ultimately posting stories here isn't getting much recognition. And if you're bored and over it, you can say that, too. If you want more topics but don't have any ideas, that's ok, too. Just say something. I know you're out there, I can see your page hits.
