I won't beg or blackmail for comments on fic, but it does bother me that so few people share their thoughts on stories. The ratio of feedback to reads, alerts, and favorites is rather appalling -- not in an objective sense, of course. There is a universe of reasons why people read without commenting; I know that. And I don't dwell on the fact that so many read with semi-invisibility. But if I'm being completely honest, and right now I am, it does sadden me.
I had no idea so many people would respond to my tiny I'm-just-thinking-outloud post about fic feedback. My intent wasn't to chastise anyone, so I hope no one interpreted my entry that way. Many times I'm just thinking on the page here at LJ, at least with my non-story posts. That's definitely the case with the aforementioned post.
I can't respond to all your comments right now, but I'll be back. In the meantime, thanks for commiserating or simply sharing your thoughts. Just another reason to love this place. :)
