I'm a writer. I when a story is in progress it helps keep me motivated to write the next chapter. But after the story is finished a comment at the end of the chapter or end of the story feels good. I know many readers prefer to leave comments at the end. I've learned to ask for an end of story com

I suck at commenting as I go (especially a story I've just found and am zipping along as fast as I can) but if I'm following something as it is posted, I try to say something each chapter. As a writer, it makes me feel good to know someone's reading.But a nice comment at the end is good also.

@TeamEricNSookie - You should put comments whenever you feel like. Writers are always happy to hear from the readers. For me personally, I try to comment on every chapter of a story I read. But even one comment on a story at the end lets the author know you liked their work and is appreciated!

A challenge to write. But you do what makes you feel comfortable. smile

@TeamEricNSookie, I definitely agree with the other responses you got to your question. Personally, I try to leave comments on as many chapters as possible because I want the writer to know how their words have impacted me. I know as a writer in can be a confidence booster especially if a chapter wa

@TeamEricNSookie: but otherwise you can obviously do what you like, no one can force you to write your comments in any given way (:

@TeamEricNSookie: sometimes I check other people's comments to see what they say about a chapter, and then I run into spoilers for the story, because of comments written to the first chapter for instance, containing info about the whole story.

@TeamEricNSookie, I leve a lot of comments and they serve multiple uses. They are not only for the writer, they also function like a bookmark and if there's a long time between the chapters, reading them can jump-start my memory.

@TeamEricNSookie honestly whatever you feel most comfortable with. I know how much work I put into each chapter so it feels really good if someone finds something interesting in more than one chapter. But that's a lot of work to comment that much so leaving a comment at the end is perfect also

I have a question.... I have been a reading member for several years now and try to always leave a comment once I complete a story. However I have noticed that a lot of people, mostly writers, leave comments after every chapter. Do you, writers, have a preference? Why? Is one comment okay?
