UPDATE March 17, 2021: Another death. Waiting for a coffin to be delivered. Funeral the 21st. Unlikely to be streaming for a few weeks.


Update: March 27, 2021: It's not even been a week since the funeral, and now there is another death and another funeral.


UPDATE April 5, 2021: There are still no streams, as, we've now a another (a 3rd) funeral to prepare for.

And that is now 3 deaths in our family, in the past 2 weeks.

This 3rd death hits hard, because it was Pippi.

Our family has now had 13 deaths since March 2020.

April 10, 2015, 12 children were kidnapped.

May 15, 2015, the heads of 10 of them were nailed to my door.

August 24, 2020, one was found still alive. he was just 4 years old when she was kidnapped, but she remembered us, even though 5 years had passed.

August 25, 2020, Pippi came home, but her condition was not well. She had been tortured the entirety of the 5 years she had been held hostage. She was missing limbs and covered with scars, had broken bones many years not set, and suffered serious damage to many of her internal organs. That she was alive at all, in her condition, was a miracle. Doctors had little hope of her survival and she was sent home with Hospice care.

Pippi had cancer in her eye and needed surgery for it, which she was scheduled to have, shortly before she was kidnapped.

In the years they had her, not only did they torture her, but her cancer went untreated and spread to her brain.

By the time she was returned to us, her cancer had reached an inoperable state, so we knew she did not have much time left.

Had her cancer been treated, back when she was a toddler, she probably would have reach adulthood.

She died only 8 months after her return.

Another child, to cry out from the grave, for Etiole's vengeance upon her murderers. Another victim of evil men, who will stoop to no ends, to bury the crimes they committed 50 years ago.  Drug lords. Opium growers. Heroine dealers. Selling little girls 4 to 8 years old for sex to priests. They only care about money.

All hail the mighty tourist ass. Millions come to Old Orchard Beach every year, for one thing and one thing only: heroine. They sell their drugs to the tourists under the pier and off the balconies of that giant motel. Than drag little girls to the bedrooms of the condominiums on Smithwheel Road, behind the school. And any child who dares open their mouth and beg for help, gets tossed in the GooseFare Brooke Ravine.

Bastard drug lords. They've been doing this for 50 years, and the town hall and the police department, turn a blind eye to it, because they get paid $6million a year to not report it to the newspapers, when the body of another child washes down the ravine, into the gulley to be spit out in the ocean. No fewer than 5 bodies are found every summer, but how often does it get in the news?

The corruption of this fucking town needs to end.

Yet another dead at the hands of these criminals who run our town.

How long will the residents continue to turn a blind eye to what is happening in our town.

How many more children will you let them kill, before you stand up to them?

Another child is dead and no one in this town cares. So long as they get their money from the tourists. The blood of another murdered child screams from the graves, begging for justice. Tick tock, tick tock, so begins, yet another of Etiole's 7 year clocks.

This is why there were no/to few streams from May 2020 until now.

May 2020, after 4 years of not hearing from them at all, the FBI returned with a lead, which led to Pip's discovery a few weeks later in August.

Because of the nature of the situation, I could not talk about it, to tell you why streams had stopped.

The kidnappers, were enraged that we had recovered Pip, and that is when the attacks started up again on my home and family September 2020.

Pip's condition continued to grow worse, and she died April 5, 2021.

She was only 10 years old.

This is what it means, to not be white in America.

White men, won't even give a child the chance to grow up.

This is what white people do, to none white families like mine.

We are Gypsies with Jewish blood, for that alone we are hunted like animals.

What the men of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, did to my family, will never be forgotten or forgiven.

#If you have any information on the kidnappers or the murders...

#FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the of the April 10, 2015 kidnapping of my 12 children by 14 Ku Klux Klan men who invaded our home and the subsequent May 15, 2015 murder of 10 of the 12 whom had their heads nailed to my front door. If you have information about the case, give it to him not me. He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322 

Have you forgot the extent of the damage these people did, all because, they wanted to dig up my land and removed bodies buried there, before my house builders found that barrel of bones?

Have you forgotten that 7 town hall workers, 5 public works men, a blond woman, her bald son, and her red haired sister Kendra, and 14 police officers, all lead by a man they referred to as "Mark who needs no last name" were the ones 

I name every one of them, except for the ring leaders: blond woman, her bald son, her sister Kendra, and her husband "Mark who needs no last name". I don't know who those 4 are. I'd never seen any of them, other than the Kendra woman before, and I only knew her fro her attacks beating me up at Panera in 2009, 2010, and 2013.

I can name every one of the others, because all I have to do is go to the Old Orchard Beach town hall and police department website, and their are their faces.

With the exception of blond woman, her bald son, her sister Kendra, and her husband "Mark who needs no last name", every one else involved was government official who works for the state of Maine vis the Old Orchard Beach Town Hall, the Old Orchard Beach Police Department, or the Old Orchard Beach Public Works.

And what exactly did they do?

August 8, 2013 they drove a backhoe over my house. That same backhoe drove over my previous house on the same land April 2007. That same backhoe drove over my poultry barn and horse stables July 2001. July 2001 was the first attack.

March 2015 was the the massive attack, with an entire fleet of trucks, and drove over the Church of the Holy Rhinstone, a church that stood on my land, my garage which is why I no longer have a garage to put my car in, my 2 sheds both of which had my tractors and other garden/crop machinery in them at the time. And of course the razing of the land, the cutting down of the apple orchard - the VERY apple orchard planted in 1530 that this town was named after... he actual "old orchard" of Old Orchard Beach... the very original trees - huge massive apple trees over 400 years old. The grape vineyards, the cherry trees, the pears trees. 

April 10, 2015, they returned, 4 police officer held me a gun point, while 10 other police officers held my children down with long poles with metal wire strangle loops on the end, and beat their faces in with cinder block bricks, knocking out every one of their teeth, breaking their jaws... POLICE OFFICERS DID THAT... while men they referred to as "Mark who needs no last name" and "Dan" stood there and told the police officers what to do, how to beat them, while "Mark who needs no last name" boldly bragged that he paid the Old Orchard Beach police $6million dollars to do this.

May 15, 2015... the heads, hands, feet, and intestines of my children were nailed to my door. Later that same day police officer W. W. came to my home begging for forgiveness and claimed that men he referred to only as "Mark and Dan" were holding his beloved mother-in-law hostage and torturing her, and he helped in the April 10, 2015 attack, only to save her life and get her back. He claimed he had no prior knowledge of what was going to happen, claiming that he'd been told they were only going to "scare" us. He said he had not expected anyone to get hurt, he had not known my children would be tortured and kidnapped, he had not known they were going to be murdered. He said he was scared for his life and lives of his family. And he said: "They form a small army, our department doesn't have enough man power to stop them, and every one in this town is too scared to fight back. You don't know what's going on. And I think they mixed you up with someone else. They didn't know you were the owner of this land. They didn't know that was your motorhome. They thought someone else owned this place. It wasn't even your family they were after. You were the wrong target. You don't know who these people are. What they've done to our families. This is the actual Mafia. The real deal. I'm so sorry. This is the address they sent us to. But they had a different name as the owner. This wasn't supposed to happen. They were after someone else. I'm so sorry. I couldn't let my family died. And now yours is dead instead. This wasn't supposed to happen."

June 19, 2016... I did a very specific livestream. You see... A., D., B., and T. in the 1970s and 1980s, were in the habit of dragging big black trash bags into the forest, crossing my land to do it, and dumping those bags into the Goosefare Brook Ravine. In 1983, 3 snuck into Etiole's swamp and planted 3 acres of Marijuana. Someone found it and called the police, I don't know who... it was Maine's largest drug raid for decades. Many, many millions in plants where dug up and removed from Etiole's swamp. A few weeks later A, & D,s 10 year old daughter ran into my yard, touched my car on a dare from other children - the 1964 Dodge 330 former Old Orchard Beach police car, known by Stephen King fans as the REAL Christine, The World's Most Haunted Car... than jumped her bike, and sped down the road, as fast as she could, head on into a car coming the other way. She died instantly, he brain shattered all over the end of my driveway, and her mother A responded by the Battle of 458 - the biggest mass shooting ever in Maine history, that ended up with 3 Gypsy clans and 2 police departments, in a shoot out between 70+ adults all armed with guns. One of my cousins, an 8 year old boy, standing 3 feet from me, had his eye shot out by one of the bullets. While A ran around the street screaming: "FOUR! FIVE! EIGHT!" than shot another child. 

"FOUR! FIVE! EIGHT!" than shoot another child. 

"FOUR! FIVE! EIGHT!" than shoot another child. 

THOSE are the 31 children, whose bones were sawed up and tossed into the GooseFare Brook Ravine... yes, that DOES mean, police officers KNEW those children were there and covered it up.  And I witnessed that entire event.

And THAT is WHY... when police officers murdered my family in 2015, I did a livestream, walking to the ravine, to show the world, where those bones were... because I'm sick and tired of the police corruption in this fucking town, and those sawed up bones of 31 children are PROOF of what this town government is like.... as are the heads of my children that were nailed to my door.

At the end of The Battle of 4-5-8... A. took 2 gas cans and poured them all over the big dome house, than set a match to it, and no one knew, why when she did her brother B., started running, jumped in his robin egg blue truck and backed down the driveway, hit Portland Ave doing 70 and didn't stop driving until the high speed chase caught him in CT... oh but we knew before he was out of sight, why he started running... the dome house went up like Hiroshima into a mushroom cloud that could be seen across the entire state... turns out there was a Meth lab in that house.

June 19, 2016... the livestream of the bones went viral, it's what made my YouTube channel suddenly explode overnight... and police officer W.W. upset, by the fact that, the livestream included the entire police call and response, and that response was to laugh and do nothing... fed up with the corruption in his department, he forwarded that livestream VOD to the FBI, and the FBI arrived in Old Orchard Beach, to dig up the Reclaim Blueberry Plains, and all hell broke lose in this town, as most of the police officers suddenly found themselves arrested. An entire new police force from out of state was brought in to replace the long time officers who had proven they could be trusted to uphold the law. Many town hall officials and public works employees also found themselves arrested by the FBI.

June 26, 2016... barely a week later... the blond woman and the red haired Kendra woman showed up at my workplace, Scarborough WalMart, and tried to kill me, yet again... these are the same 2 woman who attacked me with golf clubs at Southern Maine Community College November 14, 2013... they left dead in 2013, I was paralized for 5 months. It took me 18 months to relearn to walk. I was out of the wheel chair, and I was without a walker, I was without a cane. I had almost fully covered from their November 14, 2013 attack with golf clubs... June 26, 2016, this time they attacked with shopping carts, and I'm now crippled for the rest of my life. They shattered 3 vertebra this time and it can't be operated on. I had to relearn to walk a second time, and I'm not yet recovered now in 2021. In 2013 they drove away in the 4 door white pickup truck. In 2016 they drove away in a gold Volvo SUV station wagon.

That blond woman and her red haired Kendra sister, they are wanted by the FBI for attempted murder of me and they are also wanted in questioning for being suspected of also being the murderers of my children.

I don't know who these 2 women are.

The blond woman shows up my driveway frequently, screaming and yelling, sometime accompanied by a small child, about 5 years old, that she pulls behind her in a red radio flyer wagon. She looks to be about 60 or 70. She often wears a denim button down shirt and jeans. She's prone to yelling at passing cars, while pointing up my driveway, and saying: "There's EelKat, she tried to kill my husband."

I've never tried to kill anyone, so accusation is baffling at best.

She seems to think I know who she is, and has made the claim, that "I was that brat in school"... the red haired Kendra woman, sometimes with her, claims to be her sister, also appears to be 60 to 70 and also seems to think I know who she is, and frequently says: "You bullied me in school, but no more, I'm Kendra SilverMander it's my turn to shine."

They BOTH make the claim they went to school with me, and yet, I never went to school, a well documented fact... because I'm the child the FBI rescued what the news media called "Maine's House of Horrors". I was locked in a cage when I was 8 years old. I was let out on Sundays, to go to church, and not allowed to speak or make eye contact with anyone, and this was only done infrequently, whenever church goers asked what happened to that girl you had". I was 31 years old when the FBI arrived, because of Heaven's Gate having killed 39 people, and my uncle being one of the members and self proclaiming himself as the leader of Heaven's Gate after Applewhite's death. The FBI was investigating the murder of 39 people in California, and had no idea they'd find children in cages in Maine as a result.

So you see, when the blond woman and her Kendra sister, make the claim they went to school with me and I was the class bully who beat them up, this is easily proven false, because the time period when I should have been in school, I was locked in a cage, being tortured by my sadistic uncle Bruce.

Also, they are in their late 60s to mid 70s... making them older than my parents, so how could I have been in school with them, even if I had gone to school? At best I would have been starting pre-school the year they would have been graduating high school.

These things they say about school, only further agrees with what police officer W. W. said May 15, 2015, when he made the claim, they had gotten me mixed up with someone else.

July 2016, a month after the shopping cart attack... yet another Old Orchard Beach police officer arrived, this one accompanied by 2 Biddeford officers, who had been former OOB officers... these 3 officers, had a vastly eye opening story to tell me.

They had been called to Old Orchard Beach, to my farm, to arrest me, a call made to them, by a man named Mark, whom one of these officers, claimed was his brother in law. This Biddeford officer, said he requested to transfer ot of Old Orchard Beach department years ago, because his sister (whom he claimed he suspected, but could not prove was the blond woman whom had attacked me at WalMart) was quote "trying to control the town" he said "treats Old Orchard Beach like a dynasty, thinks she's a duchess, has severe mental disorders, and thought she could buy the police department". He went on to say, she got in with the real Mafia years ago and went to her head, and now she thinks she IS the Mafia and most of Old Orchard Beach's business owners, especially the motel owners are scared shitless of her, because they believe her claim to be Mafia. He went on to say, she's not Mafia, but she's good at convincing people she is and stated "I wouldn't murder beyond her. She'd do it just to prove she is Mafia." He said he transferred out of OOB department to Biddeford department because he was fed up with how easy it was for her to get every officer to do anything she asked. He said "the corruption in that department runs deep; don't cross her or any officer she controls; they WILL kill you and every around you. You don't know who her husband is. He doesn't just control that town, he controls half the state."

What he was telling me was bizarre on extremes, but even more bizarre was the live feed radio call, that he had me listen too, as it was happening, on my farm in Old Orchard, while I was at my dad's house in Biddeford.

He said: "The Old Orchard Department called me, asked me to come over here. Buddy Will wanted to prove you were not in Old Orchard and that Mark has you mixed up with someone else. That fucking bastard is crying wolf and trying to frame you, we can prove it right now. We are fucking fed up WolfBoy."

He turned on his radio, so I could hear. A what I heard... a man whose voice I do not recognize, yelling at a Officer W.W. and saying: 

"That is Wendy, arrest her now! That is EelKat. She tried to kill me."

While officer W.W. and another officer, told the man: "his isn't Wendy. We have officers with her right now. Who tried to kill you? Wendy? Or THIS woman right here?"

"This woman right here! This is EelKat I tell you! Arrest her! What do you think I pay you for! You aren't allow to defy me! I own this town! You are my slaves. I command you to arrest her!"

W.W.: "This isn't EelKat. This isn't Wendy. I've known her for years. And right now, she's on the other side of the state. With 3 officers, listening to you right now. You are NOT the law. We've had it with you. You don't own me. And you've mixed her up with someone else. You've been harassing the wrong damned person. You dare call us about Wendy ever again, and I will personally arrest you for false reports, than I'll tell them everything. You'll never see the outside a prison for the rest of your life when I get done with you. You fucking leave this woman alone. You destroyed her life, because you couldn't tell her apart from someone else."

I used to aqua jog, mountain climb, horseback riding, and I hiked 13 miles a day. And in the blink of an eye, that lifestyle was taken away, and every day was struggle, just to sit up and breath, with no hope of ever walking again. I defied doctors. It's been 8 years and I can move around the house by holding on to things and I now can walk again, at the moment only short distances outside with a cane, and the hope is to continue to improve. I still have a long road of recovery ahead. But I'm walking again, something that 8 years ago, doctors said would never happen. 

My farm was razed.

My family was murdered.

I was 5 months paralysed, and had to relearn to walk. It was 8 years ago and I'm not yet fully recovered due to 3 inoperable vertebrae and hip dysplasia. November 14, 2013, 10PM, at WalMart, while putting bags of groceries in the back seat of my car, I was attacked by 3 rapists armed with metal golf clubs, who left me parallelized, in a wheel chair, broken spine, broken hip, broken pelvis, broken knees, serve nerve damage to my left side limiting the use of my left hand, my bladder incontinent from nerve damage, they left me for dead, and I had doctors telling me I would never walk again.

There's more that has happened. A lot more. The thousands of gallons of sewage they pumped into my motorhome in 2015. The cats. the Ptarmagin cats. World famous groups of cats. You remember them. If so, you remember what these people did to those cats. Poisoned. All dead the same day. 12 cats. Dead to what the vet described as: "enough poison to kill a great dane". My horse, she had her head beat in with a rock. My bantam roosters... 70 pet roosters, hung by their necks in rope nooses in my rose bushes.

All because this man, this mystery Mark, whose last name seems to be known to the police but is still unknown to me and man whom I've never seen or met - he keeps his face covered whenever he shows up... mistook me for someone else... and police officers and town hall workers and public work employees.

Welcome to Old Orchard Beach... this is NOT the way life should be, you know it.

What these people did to me, should never have happened, and according to the police, it's been happening for 50+ years to hundreds of people, hundreds of families, in this town, and every one is too scare to talk about it or fight back to stop it. That NEEDS to change.

The corruption in our town, needs to stop... but it won't end, until every last person who is being harassed by these people stand up, put their foot down, and say enough is enough, we ain't gonna take this any more.

We the people of Old Orchard Beach need to take back our town.

NOTE: Chat is set to emote only on my Twitch channel and my personal contact information has been removed from my website and every place else, due to the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of false reports of "information", along with vile hateful memes about the murder of my family being sent to me by trolls who think mocking the murder of my family is funny.

Writing Prompts Syndrome? 

Ads by Share-a-Sale

I have encountered today one of the strangest things I've ever run across... a person who hates writing prompts!

Shortly after it was created, the thread was deleted, but not before the post had already been copied and pasted into my word processor where I type up my replies (I never type directly into a forum, so that I always have a back up copy on my computer of everything I write anywhere online), so, clicking the reddit link below, will no longer take you to the thread as the thread itself no longer exists.

However, my reply to it was already written, so, here is my reply here, seeing how there is no thread to post my reply on anymore...

Writing Prompts Syndrome

/r/WritingPrompts Syndrome from writing

/r/WritingPrompts Syndrome.

That's my term for the typical type of prompt that gets popular on there. If you've spent any time on that sub, you know what I mean.

Over reliance on the supernatural and sci fi. Ghosts, time travel, God and Satan (but they're...friends?!), Angels, Demons, Aliens, Reincarnation. Nothing wrong with supernatural, but not if it's at the expense of a real character or plot. In my opinion. Then the special marks (everyone is born with a special ankle mark that decides who you are / your job / who you marry). And the "twists." "Heaven is actually where you decide what you want to do." "The Aliens want you to invade their planet." "A good witch." Stuff with famous or powerful people. And more.

Not surprising because I think Reddit has a demographic that is into that content, and it's short fiction that requires a really fast reply or someone else gets the upvotes. It's hard to write a deep character development given those limits.

When I see those I skip and reply to a more simple prompt, but it rarely gets many upvotes.

But what about in published books? Do you like this kind of thing? I like characters first, and setting/mood, and those writing prompt tricks can work, but once you start having multiple supernatural twists I assume it's a gimmick to hide a lack of good writing.

Are more books becoming this way? What's your thoughts on this?

I don't mean to imply some people aren't amazing writers over there at all. I personally enjoy the supernatural and mystery, some sci fi too, but I prefer it to be just one main theme or I find it hard to suspend disbelief. I respect some people enjoy more over the top things.

I find it hard to respond to popular prompts there. Are you active on there? I actually don't like the pressure to respond ASAP. Also I'm verbose, lol.

I agree that the Reddit system makes the prompt the real challenge, and crazier prompts reach the top. I didn't know about the prompts here so thank you.

I'm impressed by people who write great responses in enough time to get seen on the sub. I find that it's harder to work under pressure that high. I can reply there if I stop caring if anyone sees it.

I don't have biases, I love the supernatural and sci fi. I read them a lot. What I meant was if over reliance on too many of the themes at once feels weird to anyone else. I knew people would assume I'm pretentious though but I still want the discussion.

In not generalizing the genre. I'm trying to figure out if this is solely a thing in that sub, or if people see it elsewhere. I refer to what you said, the wackiness and competing to be over the top. I think less can be more with these genres. I was trying to ask a question, not making a statement.

Same with sex and violence that's graphic. A little, ok. Too much and I think it's a gimmick.

You seem to have a deep and fundamental lack of knowing what a writing prompt is or how they are intended to be used. You are NOT supposed to start a new story with new characters.

Writing prompts are used as a way to get back into writing a novel that you've gotten stuck on or are in need of an idea for a new direction to take it into.

Because of this, when you use a writing prompt, you also already have a set of fully fleshed out characters that you are already working with.

>and it's short fiction that requires a really fast reply or someone else gets the upvotes.

Says who? You? Or the authors? Look at the replies. Many of them end with a note saying: "Thank you for this, it got me back on track for my novel!" Some get edited later to include the link to the novel once it's been published.

Anyone over there who is competing for upvotes, isn't there because they want to write a better novel, and probably shouldn't be there at all when you get down to it.

It's not a game sub, as is stated very plaining in their sidebar. Instructions for how to use it are in the sidebar. And they very clearly state that it's intended purpose if for helping authors to get their novels on track when they run into writer's block. Did you even read the sub's rules?

The type of posting for upvotes and competing to get to the top, that you are describing, is actually not allowed according the sub's own rules. Go read them.

It's a place for authors to post writing prompts to help fellow authors to help each other overcome writer's block.

It's a place for others to find writing prompts to use in their work in progess novels, to help them move past road block in their story.

The instructions clearly state, that if you use the prompt in your novel, to post the scene that was inspired by the prompt, so that others can read it and be inspired.

Of course, when you see the level of hate mongering and trolling that goes on in the comments of some of the stories posted, you also gotta wonder why that place isn't better modded and why the authors being lashed out at keep going back there to write more. It's certainly not one of the friendliest subreddits out there.

And yes, I have seen others there, who use it like a popularity contest, which is why the sub has rules stating no one is allowed to ask for votes.

But I'm confused...I've read hundreds, possibly thousands of the posts on that sub and RARELY are they ever full blown stories. It's quite obvious that many of the authors are using already created, fully fleshed out characters from their novel and that the scene on the sub is just that: a scene, and not a story in and of itself... it's not even a full chapter.

Which leads to your point here...

>It's hard to write a deep character development given those limits.

How often do you actually read what gets posted there?

Like I said, I've read hundreds of posts on that sub, and what you are describing is actually rather uncommon. Just read the comments under the replies, where people ask the author about their characters and the author responds to explain "Oh, this is a clip from this novel about this character, I've been working on for years, this writing prompt it's actually going to be in volume 5 of the series. It'll be on Amazon next year..."

There are dozens and dozens of authors over there who are posting a new scene every day, and they'll add a note at the end stating: "This is yet another scene from the novel I'm working on."

Sure, some are writing flash fiction shorts, but again, there's nothing wrong with that. 

I just don't see what it is you are complaining about.

You are angry because supernatural stuff gets more votes?

I'm going to assume that means, you wrote something over there and it got down voted and now you are pissed and are taking it out on the people who got a ton of upvotes?

I don't understand what the big deal is. Why are you so worried about which prompts get voted to the top or which stories make it to the front page?

Reddit is a place to chat with other authors, not show promote your work.

>Nothing wrong with supernatural, but not if it's at the expense of a real character or plot.

Again... I'm not sure what posts you are reading over there, because the bulk of the people writing story samples on that sub, are working with VERY fully developed characters and plots, and MOST of them have online character profiles (again, links are often posted in the sub to these) where readers can go to to find out more about the characters and the plots.

Many of the authors over there have wiki sites for the world their stories are set in. I know, I've read lots of theme, and they are pretty amazing.

The members of that sub go through a great deal of trouble to flesh out their characters and their worlds and then use the prompts to give their characters something to do in their worlds.

If you stopped focusing on who gets voted to the top and instead browsed around to see what's there, you'd find a lot of authors with some pretty amazing worlds.

If you started following the authors, you'd start to see that many use the same set of characters over and over again in every prompt.

Many of the prompts are a Fantasy or Sci-Fi slant, because MOST of the authors posting over there are writing High Fantasy novels, Epic Fantasy novels, Dark Fantasy novels, Urban Fantasy novels, Sci-Fi novels, Paranormal Romance novels, or Space Opera novels... thus they try to come up with writing prompts that will be USEFUL to the novels their friends are writing.

If you are looking for more Little House on the Prairie, Family Drama, or Contemporary Romance type writing prompts, you are correct in the fact that there are very few over there.... but that's only because those genres are not big sellers, never have been, never will be, and thus there are very few authors writing them, resulting in very few authors thinking to create writing prompts geared towards them.

The solution, would be for authors who are seeking those types of prompts, to get over there on that sub and start writing those prompts for each other.

Keep in mind that those writing prompts are posted by the members not the mods. YOU as a member DO have a say in what type of prompts get posted. If you are not seeing the type of prompt that interests you and the genre novel you are working on, than all you got to do is create the prompt yourself. It's what the rest of us there do.

>I find it hard to respond to popular prompts there.

Again, I really think you have completely the wrong attitude/outlook for how that sub is intended to be used.

You are not supposed to be just running down the list all willy nilly writing a fully fleshed out story for every single one of them. You are supposed to be looking for one that matches you novel in progress to help you add interesting twists and turns, give your characters new challenges, or unstick and writer's block road blocks that are getting in your way.

I mean, sure, if you are an author of flash fiction, then doing every single prompt at random is what you would want to be doing. And, when I'm looking to write unplanned flash fiction, I do in fact use whatever prompt is on top. And yeah, it's hard to do, because you have to come up with new characters, new setting, everything, off the tp of your head.

>Are you active on there?

Yes I am.

>I actually don't like the pressure to respond ASAP.

Again... why do you feel you need to respond to every prompt?

And why as soon as possibly?

What's the rush?

I do not understand the logic here. It's not a popularity contest. No one cares who answers what prompt. Plenty of prompts go unanswered. No one cares if you reply to popular prompts or not. It's not a race to see who can get the most votes. How did you ever get that idea into your head?

No wonder you are stressed out and frustrated. I think I would be too if I was running around trying to keep up with the Jones and worried about what others thought of me, instead of focusing on my job.

Stop worrying about what others thinks of you so much. If I worried about what others think, Id have stopped writing decades ago. I get hate mail by the thousands. I have 900,000 hate emails saved on my computer. Hate mail that gets sent to me on a daily basis since 1997, ever since I got my email address. My main character is a bi-sexual, transvestite. His lover's not white. I get death threats from the Ku Klux Klan because of my novels. October 18, 2006 they blew up my house with a bomb. Believe me honey, there's a lot bigger things to worry about on this planet, then who gets the most popularity votes on reddit.

>I'm impressed by people who write great responses in enough time to get seen on the sub.

I often reply to prompts that are 3 or 4 or 5 months old. When a prompt is archived and can't be replied to because it's over 6 months old, I reply to it anyways, and post my reply on my FaceBook wall instead of reddit.

I don't understand why you are so worried about being seen? I just find that logic baffling.

I mean, WHO exactly are you trying to impress? A bunch of 12 year olds who won't remember what you wrote 2 weeks from now?

The only people who are important are your fanbase. Your true fans. Your readers. The people who care about you enough to drive to a bookstore and buy your book. Not the fairweather readers who read you on reddit simply because you are there, and make no invested effort to seek out your work or support you as an author.

Think about it.

If the readers of reddit cared about your work, they are going to be going to your PROFILE page to read ALL of your work, no matter how old it is. They are not going to be ONLY reading you IF you happen to win enough up votes to make it to the top of sum subreddit.

You need to prioritize. Know who your REAL fans are and cater to them.

>I find that it's harder to work under pressure that high. I can reply there if I stop caring if anyone sees it.

I'm not over there trying to be popular. I'm a career author. I have a job to do. If I don't write, the novel doesn't get published. If the novel doesn't get published, I don't get paid. If I don't get paid, I don't eat. It's as simple as that. My job is to write novels and get them published. And if I get stuck, well, that's what writing prompts are for! I use the subreddit as a tool. Whether or not any one reads my posts over there is of no concern to me. If people read it, great. If not, it's no big deal.

My advice...




There is NO pressure to respond.

Any pressure to respond, is just something you made up in your own head. It's not a rule on the subreddit, it's some weird subconscious need to fight your way to the top, that you've put in your own mind.

Let go of it.

You'll be much happier.

I don't think I've ever answered one of the popular or front page prompts over there. No need to. I'm not looking for a pat on the back. I'm not looking for the cheering crowd.

Heck, I get posts over there with -20 downvotes. But you know what? Who the hell cares?

But back to this...

>It's hard to write a deep character development given those limits.

You want deep character development? Is a 200 page character profile, that goes into details of their hobbies, eating habits, sex life, ect, deep enough for you? It's posted online if you want to read it.

I'm on that subreddit, and if you've ever seen my replies there, you'll n
