New Elliquiy term
« on: March 25, 2008, 09:01:21 AM »
I hereby coin the term 'going postal' for when someone fires off half a dozen or more thread posts in one sitting.

I've never been guilty of that. Nope... :P

*laughs*

I think I may have actually done that at one point or another, but it would have been a helluva long sitting, given the time it takes me to write any of my posts!

Well for me, one sitting can sometimes be all damn day. Yes, I know I need to get a life.

*scratches head* You mean there aren't people who do 5-10 posts an hour, minimum? I'm disappointed if I can't get through a dozen replies in less than two hours.

Jeremiahh.... I really don't want this taken wrong, as it's not intended to be an assessment of the value of the post, but it's an unavoidable fact that the length of IC posts does have something to do with the time it takes to write them...

I agree with Night Bird. If I feel very adventurous I get through abotu 3 posts an hour but every single one of my posts are atleast 2-3 paragraphs of 3-4 lines each at bare minimum, and thats when I amjust not really feeling very writerish. but I have done 10-15 posts at one sitting though took me several hours...was when I took a few days off and had all of my stories owed of posts./

There are some that take me 10 minutes, including some decently long ones if I've been hit by inspiration from the other person's last post.

The majority of my posts take 30-45 minutes or so if I just sit down and write them... and I seldom do that. Often I'm looking at other things, chatting, poking at homework... I'm a multitasker. So one post can easily take me two hours. I have no idea how I would do like 3 per hour unless they were 3 of the quick, inspired posts. :)

I like the term, though. Hee!

Then what's the term that's used when I run around with a super soaker and douse everyone with lime flavored koolaid?

I have never done that, and i most likely won't ever do that.
