I have a slight concern and I'm not sure if this goes here, but I can't think of anywhere else it would be entirely relevant to. I've been involved in several online writing groups, both as a reader and a writer. In my smaller groups I put in effort to read and comment on everything that's posted and it seems like most of the stories get 1-5 comments, usually around three. When I post my pieces they may get 1 comment, on larger groups when I post really short stories I get nothing. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I try to be active, I post stories of all length, as short as 100 words and as long 3000 words. I've begun to worry my writing's difficult to comprehend or unpleasant somehow. I don't know, since I hardly ever get an opinion on my work and usually the comments are nice, but vague. I suppose people may not care? I only write as a hobby, so my posts aren't urgent. Is it worth giving up if I don't have any reason to keep it up? Could I ask what kind of stories you avoid or don't draw your attention? Is there a certain length or genre you avoid? What sort of things draw you into a story? Do you read because you want to or because you have to? Have a similar problem with getting your stories read, etc...?
