(warning: this is a â€œis it just me or…â€ post)
So Iâ€™ve been following some simblr stories for some time. Maybe itâ€™s the old-school in me, but Iâ€™m not a fan of the tumblr format for telling stories.Â I discover stories, sure, but half-way or three-quarters into a plot, and someone had already reblogged theÂ â€œtwistâ€.Â Â And if I follow stories, just the way the tumblr format is, I canâ€™t follow in chronological order. So unless Iâ€™m on tumblr all the time,Â Â Iâ€™m reading the last part of a story, and backing up, lol.Â
Most good story writers are really good about providing navigation links. But now Iâ€™ve gone back to sim story writing, I still donâ€™t think the tumblr format is right for my story. Maybe Iâ€™m too obsessive about controlling the plot path which is why Iâ€™m fine with posting the full chapter with all the pics.Â Â
Iâ€™m not talking about legacies, or any other challenge stories or game play stories. Iâ€™m more thinking of plot based sim stories which is what Iâ€™m looking for.
Also, story posts that are photo posts with all the images up top and a wall of text below.. Iâ€™m not personally feeling that either, I feel like it disconnects me.Â
This is all just a personal opinion, but please let me know what you think? Tumblr format for sim stories, yay or nay? Am I overthinking these things?Â
