Hey everyone: I just wanted to say that despite my problems with Booksie, I LOVE it and I really don't mean to offend anyone (even though I'm sure I will. And I apologize for that.) But anyway, I hope you enjoy!

The first thing I hate about Booksie, is the homepage. You may ask what bothers me about the homepage of Booksie. My answer? The crappy writing (well.. besides a FEW stories. For example, A Harpers Education is a lovely, touching story. But the Twilight crap, sick of it! And "emo gay love stories".. sick of it!

This brings me to my next point. The terrible crap that is "luved" on here. Their are SO many great authors on Booksie, whom don't get any recognition because they aren't writing an "emo gay love storii" or "another love hate relatonshep buuk" or "i luv meh hawt vampire boyfrind" or "sex is funn until i got pregnint" I'm just SO sick of it!

Next, comes the comments. I'm sick of getting comments that don't even show that the person read the chapter. (For example, "I love it! You write sooo gud! Update mehh? OH AND READ MY STORII AND LEAVE AN UPDATED COMMENT PLZZ!") I try to leave detailed comments, pointing out what the writer can do to improve the quality of their writing and also pointing out the good things about it. When someone reads my story and leaves a detailed comment, I try hard to read their story and leave them a detailed comment back. But if they leave a crappy comment? Then I leave one back. I am sooo sick of *most* of the comments on this website. It makes me want to scream! Oh yeah, and why do all the cliched, crappy novels get all the comments?

The demographic. People on this website are mostly from 9 - 20, and the majority of them are vastly immature. Most of them can't write for crap. And I'm not saying I'm the best writer ever, but at least I put work into it. I'm thirteen, but I take my writing seriously. At least I have the courtesy to make sure my writing has proper grammar and spelling.

The people who don't know how to write. At least do your research, develop your characters, write an outline and CHECK YOUR GRAMMAR/SPELLING -- BEFORE you post!

I also hate when people ripoff other novels. And whats this obsession with vampires?

..Yet for some reason, I'm still here. =/ Anyone agree with me?
