    whatever Scientists tells us what they believes are the only things that exists in Reality(our world), they treats what US government and mainstream news media said about things like 9/11, CO2 Emissions, and so on as their gospel

    I've given it a few shots. Always run into the same problem; writer's block.

    Oh, I plan out the overall narrative of the story, but its filling out the story itself that I run into problems. And right now, only have 1 story up, being a crossover of DC and DBZ set in the post-Cell Games/Great Saiyaman Arc, just before Buu. With Kara as a catalyst to the two main groups coming together (shared Earth).

    Going back and re-reading it, yeah. I feel I could have done much better overall, and filling it out...

    Not to mention I keep getting other ideas in my head, I get a little in, and writer's block rears its ugly head again.

    As a kid, yeah, and all the way into High School w. some like minded nerds.

    As an adult, no, but I do a lot of team builds and often come up w. backstories and premises as to why these characters are together, what they’re doing, how they’d interact etc.

    I have it doesn’t get much traction I guess when you only write 1 or 2.

    Well, it also depends on the fandom, the summary, rating, and the other tags.

    I write lots of fanfics (a lot of it NSFW, admittedly).

    Dragon Ball Z is the main one, though I mainly focus on crossovers. Though others that have big fandoms would be Harry Potter, Naruto, Twilight, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, etc. Basically, you can tell by how many stories each fandom has. For instance, in non-crossovers, DBZ has 53k+, and its not even the biggest anime fandom on fanfiction.net. Naruto has over 430k in non-crossover.

    What's more, chapter length is also a factor (for me, anyway). I prefer stories with, at minimum, 2500 words a chapter (and the more the better, for me).

    Other stuff includes, but not limited to, is the summary, proper paragraphing form (not walls of text), proper spelling and grammar (I and most people are forgiving if there's maybe a few minor mistakes, but if its REALLY bad on chapter 1, and can tell with only a glance, good luck getting people to read), proper characterization, and so on.

    OCs can be extremely hit and miss, often falling on "miss", so unless they're just a minor character/fill in for a spot, OCs tend to be Mary Sues/Gary Stues.
