I understand that a venting website is apparently what a lot of you need, but that's not what this is. I posted this whole long thing the other day, about WRITING and no one replied. I thought some of you might appreciate it but apparently I was wrong. No one replies on the main site either which is even more disappointing. It has become quite evident to me that no one is going to reply to or act on this post, so it doesn't even really matter what I say. I just find it really disappointing but whatever.

i agree completely with what clay said. i personally feel like, since a lot of us are close on kp, we feel comfortable venting here when we have practically nowhere else to vent. we feel like we'll get support and sympathy from each other, which can be really helpful when you're lacking it in real life. so i think it's perfectly fine to vent on here, especially since there are only a few threads on wb for it.

people here have grow tired of writing, perhaps, or they don't feel they should post on here.

why do people sign up? because KP is for writing. they like to write. a new person called Ally says in her bio
'And my gosh PLEASE stop me I'm writing too much this is a new account and I just CANNOT stop writing and I'm addicted 8P!!!

Sorry for that but this is my new account and :DD'


She likes to write on here. She loves it, in fact. So what you are saying is that people don't write... well, my friend, that is totally untrue.
this is one thread. one. sure, maybe it's a popular one, but do you even check other threads on writers block? people discuss their stories, and art, and singing. maybe this subfolder 'free advice' isn't for that. maybe this is more of a free advice place.
i don't go on much - in fact, i spend most of my time on the gsrm thread, much like Eli. that thread is where i can discuss things im passionate about (queer rights), which in turn, is writing. so no one should be saying this is only for venting.

WB is called writers block for a reason - people come here when they aren't writing, so when you expect writing here, maybe you should look elsewhere.

i would recommend wattpad, if you want writing and not much of a community sense. i'm @pluzzle.

i write, a lot. i just don't post it on here. i vent, well i used to, because no one in real life is trustworthy, or i don't want them to have to listen to me. i come to here for support so in my times of need, even if no one looks at my post, i can feel as though im safe. and im sure that goes for others too.

maybe the nsp is bad KP stories that make no sense. maybe it is character contests and story updates, but not the stories themselves. perhaps that is true, puckbrina (idk ur name lol). but at least we have a community of people that love to write, or loved to. we all hold one thing in common: our love of literature and creating it. but obviously, people have problems that they want friends to help them through, and that's what this thread was created for.

im sorry if this came across as rude, or anything, but i just feel as though your post is incorrect and i needed to share my view on it. i dont expect your reply to be sunshine and rainbow. have a go at me, if you feel the need.

edit: one more thing - 'young writers' are mostly on the nsp. the older ones, say 14, 15, 16 etc are on here. sure, im only 13, but i feel as if this site is segregated into two different parts anyway.

*standing ovation*

Thanks for your input.
I agree with most of your opinions. I do think that what I posted was not completely accurate and that it did need to be corrected, so thanks.
I think a more accurate thing I could have said would be that KP has become less active on the writing part of it and that is slightly disappointing.
However, I understand the fact that WB has threads other than the venting ones, but it seems that all the other ones are slowly going away.
Thanks for helping me out with that, it's kind of been frustrating me lately but you just made me put it in perspective.
Have a nice day. :)

Between you and Clay's posts, I see this more clearly now. Thanks. :)
