Half of these probably won't get finished but for those of us who don't like reading only half of a story; could you mark it in a blurb or in a review somewhere??? Nemesis You truly are a life saver with your wip shelf; Thank you;. Half of these probably won't get finished but for those of us who don't like reading only half of a story; could y I got caught out there a couple of times and to this day those suckers haven't been updated, grrrr, lol.
First thing I do now before I look into them further is make sure they are complete. You have to actually go to the story page and the last chapter.
Sometimes even if they don't have a 'complete' tag they will be finished, but mostly they won't and there isn't even an author's note explaining anything. It's really frustrating, because I read 40 chapters in a story which is missing the last two, and the year it was last updated - It's obvious it won't ever be finished and while it might be amazing and whatever, it's still half a story. I won't give 5 stars to a book without an ending. The reason why I get especially annoyed is because some of the blurbs sound amazing, and I get all excited and interested only to get to the pages and realize the story isn't even close to being done.
I hope that the person that is adding all of these to the GR database has obtained permission from the author before doing so. Any that are a WIP should clearly state that in the description and I'm not even sure that any unfinished stories should be added to the database since it's intended for novel length books.
May 09, Any that are a WIP should clearly state that in the description and I I understand that many readers don't like investing time into unfinished or in-progress stories, or even taking a few moments checking for themselves, assuming that the info is available. So yes, I see that you're right in demanding that these details to be included. As for in-progress or unfinished titles I keep a more subjective view.
If short-stories can be added to GR, why shouldn't be the same for those fiction works that have over , words. And regarding the author's permission, I don't think it's necessary because the story is not offered for download here. Here's my two cents: That is a BIG deal. For the most part, I feel pretty strongly that people shouldn't be adding any and every random internet WIP that strikes their fancy. I mean, that has the potential to be completely crazy if every random tween FP "author" decides to add their 1-chapter WIP story to the database.
Anyway, I know that's all totally subjective I've got to agree with Nemesis on that front. I think it's probably courteous to give them a heads up, if you feel like it. But I don't think it's absolutely necessary to get "permission" before adding a story to the database. I can't conceive of any reason why an author who publicly posts their work online would have reason to object.
Oh, I love this list. I have to throw in my two cents, too. I don't understand what the issue is. I was under the impression this is mostly what this particular list is for.
A good read is a good read whether the work is published or not. There are some stories in here I thought were incredible and would've never found if not for this list. It would be nice if it was clearly stated that a story was a WIP or Unfinished, but that can quickly be confirmed for the most part on the story's home page.
It's like researching any book that you are interested in. The postings here link to where the author is posting the story, you actually need permission for this? I would think that it would only increase traffic to their sites. Isn't that a good thing? This is actually very unclear to me. I really would like to know what the protocol is, wouldn't want to offend anybody or anything.
I would like to thank those who have taken the time to add these stories. I love to take a peek in here from time to time and see what catches my interest when I want something different. Most times I've been happily surprised. May 10, I guess it's not as important to get permission from the author if you're just linking to where the stories are. I still think it's common courtesy and if they were my stories, I would appreciate a heads up that a link was being posted here.
The issue of unfinished stories being added to the database is being discussed in the Librarian's group so an official policy may be somewhere down the road. Until then, it makes sense to me to go ahead and edit the description to indicate that it's a WIP. I realize that you can follow the link to the site and figure it out but why not just add it? May 28, I don't believe it's even common courtesy to give authors heads-up if their stories are being posted on Goodreads. We don't do that for published authors, why give the special treatment to unpublished ones?
Jul 06, About getting an author's permission before adding their story to the database I can't conceive of any reason why an author who publicly posts their work online would have reason to object Hmm But I'm also a little horrified. I mean it's my first major writing effort and it's a rough draft I wrote during a very stressful time in my life. I posted it on AFF without a proper editor in order to get feedback in that context.
I can roll with it being linked here. I put it on the internet for come who may after all. But it is not in any kind of shape to be compared with published works and I'm not sure waiting another year for me to make my edits wouldn't have been better for everyone?
It makes sense to me because when someone "publishes" a work in ebook or paper form they are calling it done-done and opening up that work to general critique. They have also most likely had the benefit of an editor or five. People post their writing online for lots of reasons and in a million different forms of "complete.
A wider audience is not always a good thing at some stages of the process. I recently saw a negative review for a published work on Amazon that the reviewer based solely on a draft they had read years ago on AFF. I love having my writing open to the public because I get the most helpful criticism from the most random places by putting my work out there. But if I was writing in hopes of seeking publication, I probably wouldn't share it so freely in this climate and that makes me a little sad.
