what would you rather have one really long story, or have it broken up into two or more so it's not so long?

I quite like reading really long multichaptered fics, the best I've ever read was 300,000 words.

With regards to oneshots, if its well written, I think it can work as one chapter.

Sometimes splitting it can ruin a good story climax.

i think you're right i do have a story going now and it has turned out to be 74 chapters. sometimes reading the really, really long stories it feels like it's taking for ever. i dont want mine to be like that.

i do think you are right though. splitting the story up could mess it up. i never thought of that.

I can be attention-deficit at times, so if a one-shot is too long I may not read it all. Breaking it into two chapters is not a sin.

I, personally, really like long stories. As long as they are well written and don't lose my attention. My favourate ever story had seventy seven chapters ^.^ It was GREAT!!!

I don't mind reading really long stories - though I always end up asking the author if I can print it because I get tired of the comp when I read.

And I write one-shots for the most part - I'm not one for long stories, I tend to have too many ideas and end up messing the 'plot'.

i think i am going to do at least one one-shot. the long stories can really get out of hand. although it's easier for me to explain and get the story going in longer ones. oh well i think my external hard-drive deserves to have a little room left. ^_^

I once read a story that was so long I went from hating a certain character to falling in love with him in two massive chapters.

...Then he died, and so did a small part of my soul ._. (goes to reread that wonderful fic)
