I Wrote and Published My First Story Today!:

I'm bringing sexy back!
I've recently published a 'creepypasta' to the creepypasta wiki. I've been reading creepypasta and other horror for some time now, but this is the first time I've gotten around to writing some. My story can be found here:

http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Hoodies

Tell me what you think! I really hope it's not too terrible.

I changed accounts.
'Tis alright. A grammar error here and there, and it could definitely use some fleshing out, but it stands as an intriguing story base to be pursued, methinks.
I am now known as Flyboy.

Thanks for the feedback! This is my first dabbling into writing, and I decided to go with a creepypasta because those have always been my favorite. I always liked the weird ones which give you a bit of detail but never really tell you whats going on.

Rainbows hurt.
I'm not too familiar with creepypasta, but is it supposed to be so beige?

It's beige? I've only begun writing anything 'serious' recently, so I'm sorry if my prose comes off as beige feeling. I'm still trying to get down whats too wordy/not wordy enough.

Rainbows hurt.
Well, like I said, I don't know if it's supposed to be like that though. Is it? Like, are most creepypastas written that way?

Forget the tropes until after you're done.

The question wasn't what creepypastas are, it's whether the writing style (which does seem rather beige) is appropriate or not.

Not that I can answer that, as I've never read one.

[up]Putting something out on the internet is still publishing by this site's standards. I've been writing for almost a decade and never shared any of my work except with my girlfriend, so 'publishing' online would be a big deal to me too.

I only consider it to be truly published if you profit off of it, or sell the rights.

So E Download or paper/hardback are the only things that count for me.

I plan to publish to try and get my book published in paperback. Hardback is falling rapidly because of E books, and only paperback seems to stand a chance of surviving the Apocalypse.

Sorry bro/girl, your story isn't published, at least in my definition, yet.

If that's being published, than I'm a fucking novelist on the level of Stephen King by now.

[up] Yup.

Well regardless it is still a notable landmark. perhaps he wanted to celebrate.

He shouldn't have used the sacred word "published" so easily like that. I'm almost offended.

only because you haven't gotten as far as him. your jealous and its pretty petty for you to say what you just now said.

It may not be published by many people's standards, but the fact is that he made a landmark and you should be happy for him and not talking like that.

[up] I'm not jealous of him (although you will no doubt think that I am no matter what), merely saying that he is severely misusing the term.

-pats OP on the back-

You did good little buddy! C:

I actually read it and it was pretty good. Good story. Just not published.

 20 jasonwill 2, Mon, 24th Oct '11 12:24:49 AM from West Virginia
d Roy, I only got on you because I thought you overacted, that was all. but anyway...

good job op!

And you could've pointed that out far less offensively.

And yes, good job for the OP indeed.

Wow, didn't mean to cause a fight over the word 'published'. I meant as in put it up for other people to see, that's all. I've always kept (the few) things I've written before to myself.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
