  • Everyone may not remember me, but a long time ago in the land of the dinosaurs (4-5 months ago), I had posted a blog pertaining to a pasta I would eventually get around to creating. (The Blog, though this idea was not mentioned within it.) Well, now I am really hoping to actually publish one here, however it would be based on true events that have happened to me. The only downfall is, it’s very long, elaborate, highly detailed, and some parts may not even seem “creepy”. But overall; it’s got factors in it that would make it become categorized as freaky, creepy, weird, etc. I was wondering if it could have a home here, or if I would need to post it elsewhere. Due to it having a chance of being unbelieveably long, it would probably have to be put into chapters. Any thoughts?

    • If you don't have much experience writing pastas, don't go with a very long one. They are very tricky, in ways you cannot imagine. I suggest try and write shorter ones to gain valuable experience first.

      But if you are set on writing this pasta, I don't think its length will be an issue, provided that the story is top quality. Long pastas work only if they are extremely well written. They don't work if they are nicely written, they need to be exceptional, or else nobody will bother to finish them.

      I am not writing this to put you down, I only want to warn you that huge pastas come with huge responsibility.

      If you are still dead set on writing this idea of yours, certainly break it up into chapters. But still, they might wear you out.

      I am an avid writer; it being time consuming or anything on the lines of that, really isn't a factor on keeping me from completeing the pasta. I also don't think that rather or not I have uploaded a pasta or not should be an issue. Thanks for your feedback!

    • I am just talking from experience. After I had written 2-3 pastas (none of which are on the wiki) I decided I wanted to write a longer pasta. After I was about 4500 words in, I realized it was probably pretty boring so I stopped. That happened because I had no serious experience in writing and I bit more than I could chew.

      Anyway, this is my advice. Take it or leave it. Whatever you choose, good luck.

      That is very true. I'm an artist, and sometimes have the same issue.

    • Can I ask for a summary of the events out of pure curiosity?


      As for length, It should not be a problem since we have Pastas as long as The Seven Deadly Songs on this site, which I believe is also in chapters.

      It's over a 5 year period. But it deals a lot with spirits.
