I haven’t been part of the forums and the whole episode community for long yet but i’ve been on the app for like 2 years.
Before joining the forums i was super active on the app and read a LOT of stories all the time, but since i‘m on the forums, write a story, create outfits for me and others, improve coding skills, do art, proofread or just read to all kinds of posts on here for hours i don’t really use episode itself as much anymore, yeah i do still read especially when i‘m proofreading but it’s more about everything around creating and writing for episode then really the app itself.
Is that just me or do you feel the same about it? What’s your experience?
Ever since I’ve started writing stories on the app, I read way less than I used to. I barely read at all on it tbh. I’m so focused on my stories.
It also happened to me! The moment I decided to become a writer in the community I stopped reading stories as much as I did before. Now I usually read when I have some free time (which is rare because I write all the time).
I also hardly ever read on Episode anymore since I became an author. Pretty much everything I do that is related to Episode now is writing my story.
I was planning on making stories on episode, but I quit because I realized that making manga would be more free and let’s me design more. (Also I can put violence)
I feel the same way!
For some reason I feel less motivated to read stories. Instead I spend more time on the forums and on the writers portal working on stories.
However there are occasional stories that still grab my attention such as Black Magic by @thebutterfly_episode, In Her Shoes by @dkr_episodes, and Crushing Steele by @Talu
Same! I’m just so focused on my own story now, and I’m here proofreading and doing reviews, too.
100% in the same boat. I write on episode, but don’t read as much anymore.
It’s hard to find time to read when you’re trying to publish.
You are always so sweet.
Oh my God, same. Like I use to read at least one episode per day whether I’m at home or on the bus or whatever but recently I joined the episode forum and now I haven’t read any stories for a month. Maybe it’s because I have my own story to worry about, idk Personally for me, I think its the things on the forum that people post that I agree with and don’t read anymore for example mafia story or vampire story. I don’t read any of those stories. I think its a good thing idk but I hate it because now when I read an episode story, I can’t even finish one episode let alone 50. It really doesn’t matter if you have millions of views, I just get bored of it. Maybe I’m having one of those breaks where I will delete the app and after 2 years or so, I come back. It’s happen before!!
