Loved it! I usually don't read essays or other "non-stories" but the title caught my eye. Hilarious! I am gonna save you in my favorites and read your stories when I have time. Keep up the good work and have writing!
Thank you on behalf of all the self-proclaimed feedback sluts out there. Hats off!
I'm only sending you this in the hopes that you'll comment on it in your next story....maybe I'll become vicariously famous.
I don't know which way to go with it though - condemn you for plagiarising other people's comments (and critical ones at that) in order to further your own reputation and self-aggrandisement?
Or should I fall down at your feet and praise you for being every web-wanker's Virginia Woolfe?
I must admit, my temples weren't the only part of me to be throbbing at your dirty talk......it was literary licentiousness of the pre-cum inducing best. You succeeded in combining lowly lasciviousness with high art to the point where I almost spurted over my keyboard.
Humour and sex.....an unlikely and unwieldy combination but in the hands of a true artisan such as yourself, a masterpiece is possible. Keep on writing, don't stop, please, don't stop, yes, keep doing it like that baby, yes, yes, more...
Great idea. Feedback is the elixir of the author. I like it.
Fab idea... way to go!
I admit to being quite the compulsive feedback fanatic myself, but I never viewed it as a form of aphrodisiac. LOL!
Such a fine piece of literary work.
Your novels must be quite a treat.
I especially liked the grammar in this one.
And of course a monumental breakthrough in literature, too. :-)
I am still looking for another literary Pearl. I now know you have it within you to match the set.
It is a dark, cold, and stormy day here in New Jersey--being in New Jersey is bad enough; icky weather just makes it worse. But your essay brightened my day, made me laugh out loud (why do people write like they worked for the Government; laughing is not something to either be ashamed of or a tongue twister of neo-words) and just plain made me happy. Thank you.
Really, lots of fun to read, and you did get the package taken care of, just not the one in the hall.
Your friendly gyno
So much of the writing here tries hard to sound sophisticated...and the writers scatter apostrophes like pepper on cauliflower...... You had me howling gleefully. Don't stop. Don't ever stop. I just may come!!!!!
It was so humorous I had to read "Addicted to Feedback" twice. Your sense of humor is really wicked and I must confess that it draws me to read your other stories.
and taking another uh... uhhh...uhmmm... "fun" approach to reading My feedbacks from here on "in"! This was indeed hilarious and justly placed in the humor/satire category, but if you think about it, it would have rocked in the "How To" section as well lol. Oh! that reminds Me - I really should go thong shopping - that is, after I read My feedbacks for My latest poem.
Such a refreshing change from the usual graphic stories yet not overlooking that aspect either. A reminder too that sex can be fun and has a before and after time. Thanks, Caroline.
Thank you for this very funny and perceptive piece. It is all so true, and very well observed. It is also more than a little erotic; I know the feelings well. Congratulations!
A good story. LITERATURE to remember. Someone with such an excellent grasp of GRAMMAR should really think about writing a NOVEL.(Cute story, loved it)
caroline....you had me rolling on the floor...!!!!! toooo funny!!
Perhaps it should be a requirement that every visitor to Literotica read this prior to leaving feedback (public or private) for the first time ;-)
You have a real gift (for writing)! It's great to see an erudite author on this site. I assume your day job is writing for Harper's Bazar or the New Yorker! Your prose is scintillating! Your insights razor sharp! Ignore those few unwashed curmudgeons that fail to properly appreciate your towering talent! Accept the proper adulations of your myriad fans. Bask in the ruddy glow of the aitches strewn across your submissive (oops! I mean submission) page like confetti on Times Square on New Year's Day! Enjoy the rampant jealousy of all the other authors whose faces are as green as the eeees cast like manna after your titles! Enjoy!
You've done a nice job of writing about, "Writer's Angst." I really enjoyed the humorous way you went about it. Thank You. Ronnie W.
who told you what I...oh, forget I said anything. Very funny Caroline and what a way to talk about the massive ego strokes us authors revel in. Great job, and so very literary..lol.
Awsomely written, first time I have felt compelled to leave feedback. The first Humor story that had me laughing. You are indeed an insperation to the rest of us.
As I type this short note to say thanks for the sexy tease and funny boner thoughts your story finds, I will enjoy another of your stories and promise to send feedback; be it good or better. \~/ Cheers!
A very clever treatment of the daily agony suffered by artists needing affirmation and approval of their creations.
It's part of the price we pay for digging the stories out of ourselves; it leaves a hole we need filled by others.
And I'd love to read a novel by a writer this intelligent and accomplished.
covered in self esteem, my self gratification runs over! Let me guess this was when you were maybe seventeen? No couldn't be they have a more realistic outlook on life usually. Must be when you were thirteen or so.
I began reading your stories, and found each filled me with somthing different. When I read "Vera" I cried, to me, I'ts possibly the finest story in Literotica.
punctuation errors: (none)
Spelling errors: (none)
Content: Very real and heart felt.....
I chose this particular story to send you feedback on, perhaps pervertedly, because at one time I thought feedback was important, more important than critism from my peers. To be honest the only feedback I ever get is grunt grunt let me feel your cunt, maybe my efforts arnt as rewarding as I thought they'd be, who knows? Anyway You are talented and your stories, irrispective of gendre a pleasure to read. I wish you well
And I thought I was the only one.... The first time I got a negative response I was crushed and nearly stopped contributing, until some anonymous soul came to my cyber-rescue with a timely bit of wisdom, which is echoed in both your story and the comments to it: we write for our own pleasure, and I wish you tons of it!
This piece made me smile because it really hit home . . . except no one's ever hit on me when they've sent feedback. Makes me wonder what I'm doing wrong.
Loved this piece. Brought a laugh on an otherwise crappy day. Feedback is addicting, isn't it? But my guess is you've gotten way more feedback than I have. But then you deserve it.
Correct grammar, huh? I have to go check out your other stories. I am in heat.
I think I may have knicked myself with that rapier wit of yours! :) This was a delightful portrait of the fixation we have with feedback blended with a not-so-subtle reminder not to take ourselves so seriously. Is it ironic that it inspired this little ego stroke? :p
Your story really put a smile on my face this afternoon.
This reminds me of the people on the forum who leaves their stories as signatures. Too funny!
I absolutely loved that!
A great little vignette about what motivates an author. If you were being published in print, most of the feedback would be in cash :-)))
Not sure what was more arousing: the tantalising photograph of those toned legs or the wicked words that tease and yet provoke enough to wish to tailor a suitable response!
You sure seem to know how to make it hard for a man to resist your other stories!
Very evocative and exquisite!
This was great. Had me chuckling.
Cracking me up.. :))
Your use of language was beautiful. This is some of the very best writing I've had the pleasure of reading. Your intellect shows in all that you write.
I'm still laughing that you used the term "tiger" in a sexual sense, I can't tell you the last time I heard, "give it to me tiger" used, haha. At the risk of this being ironic I have left you this comment :) ENJOY, and don't forget that package.
I loved this so much that I really want to leave a comment ... but that will just make me part of the story and an object of the author's satire. I can feel myself disappearing up my own self-referentiality. Probably serves me right.
This story was very nice I'm not to good with words so I will just take my leave now.
Am I doing it right???
I'm a little afraid to write this comment, given that it may result in a feedback loop.
Ooooh you're good! The very first feedback and the response got me laughing so hard. damn!
You don't need my feedback judging be the so many others who took the trouble to enjoy a 'wunnerfool' piece of work.
I really had to agree, to the max., with LeanneSinclair.
A sparkly, tongue-in-cheek gem of an essay. You rock!
