@Shiawase: I was going to mention that too--I know that heaps of my views are just mine. XD
Hmm, I tend not concern myself with those kinds of things. While acknowledgement and attention is very much appreciated and satisfying, I'm at a point where I post simply because I want to no matt
Idk, I know some of those reads are mine, so I don't put too much stock in that count lol But I'm happy, of course. I'm always happy when people read my stories :D
I don't usually look at the view count, just reviews/favourites/etc., so I never consider them actual 'reads'. For all I know, someone didn't like it, or clicked on it by accident.
Lately it's a mixture of things. Happiness that it's being read...but on certain fics almost no one is reviewing soooo sometimes meh
Opinion: How do you all feel (writers) when you see your stories have over 1000 readers??
Please direct your attention to the News section, as a new article has been posted. Thank you!

GHOSTS OF THE VANGUARD
"the leaders of any intellectual movement"
Where countless things are brought to life by authors who happen to be an unseen force, but very powerful in existence.
This site and our name symbolizes that we are the leaders of our field, taking control of an often obscure title and turning it into a symbol of pride. We may never see our work in print or flying off the shelves, but we know who we are and what we stand for. If you intend to haunt our medium and instill a strong symbol of leadership and fearlessness into a craft that is largely misunderstood and thankless and yet you intend to push forward in spite of the odds, this is the site for you.

Now, seeing that it's November, that leaves everybody who wants in plenty of time to actually participate in this event. There were plenty of messages throughout the main website, the forum, and our facebook group. Personally, I do not know what goes on in a Secret Santa but I have been given plenty of resources to hand it out to you guys.
The official start is today (November 8th) to turn in forms to show your commitment to the event. The deadline should be by November 30th! That surely gives everybody enough time, right? Right! Then, Secret Santas will be assigned between December 1st through the 3rd and everybody participating has until the 31st to post their gifts.
There are a few suggestions and rules that, of course, come with every event. For this particular event, it has been suggested that people participating and writing stories for your partner should write in second POV (reader-inserts) to make the presents that much more personal. Authors should write a minimum of 1000 words for their gift.
We understand that there was an issue about the people who want to participate but are not writers. But our very own Renohotness has come up with an excellent idea to even include these kind of participants in the event.
For the ones who aren't authors, write a short blurb to either your favorite author appreciating the work they've done or the possible impact the author has had on them. If a lot of people like the idea of assigning author/reader, we can also do that. Reno has also brought up the idea that it can also be done anonymously or not.
The small blurb itself shouldn't be anymore than a thousand words. We're still working on that but if that happens to be too much, please speak up about it at the forum.
We understand that a lot of details still need to be worked out but we'll keep the community updated as things change or shift. There shouldn't be any large changes besides that of what consists of a Secret Santa. We've already set the base so we're just building up.
Now for the form itself:
Gift Specifics: (Fandom, Character, Genre (Up to 2 genres), rating (K- MA), Extra (anything you want to be included)
Fandoms you are willing to write for: (List all)
Up to what rating can you write for:
Limitations: (Topics you won't write like male inserts, lemon, etc)
Are you willing to be a backup? (Just in case, one secret Santa doesn't come through, you are willing to write another Oneshot for the giftless person)
All forms should be emailed to Beckycarolan@gmail.com, not on the forum thread. Also, if a participant cannot post something before the deadline because of unforeseen circumstances, they should inform the staff as soon as possible by sending an email to the address given above.
For suggestions, comments, or questions, feel free to respond in our forum thread*

Just when you send me an email, could you guys mention Secret Santa in the subject, so I don't accidentally think it's spam? Thank you very much!
