Have you ever thought up a great story but have never posted it because someday you may write that book and you don't want the plot/ideas/concept already plastered over the internet? Or maybe you just love the story so much you just want to keep it to your self and not show anybody?

Nah, mostly because none of my story ideas are that great and I can't get the good ones down on paper anyway.

They just stay vague ideas in your head?

For original writing, sure. But generally no for fanfic ideas.

@jonny_anonymous: lol, yeah, I'm terribly paranoid like that. I've had ideas for (original) comics and stuff and haven't posted them on here.

@fadetoblackbolt: Have you ever wrote a story and just not shown it to anyone? Not because you thought it was bad but that you love it that much you just want to keep it to your self?

No, I never come up with good ideas to begin with.

I have written a lot of good stories that I am just keeping until a good artist comes and illustrates them.

Yeah, i have my own little universe with a good 300 or more characters and a bunch of stories. But every time i try to put anything down it sounds like a 10 year old wrote it :P

@jonny_anonymous: I just write them down on paper after I told them online(on runescape lol, it was a clan thing I did. Would gather clan members together and I'd tell stories. Mostly creepypasta-type stories.) I plan on making them into a manga(kind of like how Junji Ito makes his) or a short-story book some day.

I get good ideas (I think) but trying get them in writing always ends bad. My language and story telling abilities leave alot to be desired.

@jonny_anonymous: I have original characters I write about but not on here. Feels like anyone can just take. Sometimes I might write down something, then not happy with it and throws all of it in the trash.

I'm working on a book now I tell no one about because of the same reason.

Well considering the lack of support for original content on this fan fic forum I mainly use it to work out ideas and see where I need improvement but I doubt enough people read my stuff to steal any ideas I might have for a future book.
