Plot Samples?

I do my best to keep my request thread on the shorter side to prevent any TL;DR issues. But I also like to add enough info that allows those interested to get a good idea of my writing and be able to decide if they’re interested.

That having been said, one idea I’ve had recently was to add small ‘samples’ to each of my plots. This is to say, alongside each story idea, I would have a spoiler that can be expanded to see a writing/story sample of what the story might look like.

I have my RT linked in my sig, and feel free to peek at it as well and offer pointers. But what’s the consensus on this? Is it unnecessary since I already have a sample? Would you read it if you were perusing RTs?

All feedback appreciated in advance, thank you!

I don't know if plot-specific samples are necessary so to speak, but you could always put them in a spoiler if you want. I usually give pretty much everything in a search thread at least a cursory glance, especially if it's the intro someone wants to use for that specific plot, though I would avoid against wanting to use specific samples that decide things about the other person's character/use details someone else had planned out.

Gotcha. I agree that it’s best to keep things vague with regards to who someone else plays. I have found that sometimes people are uninterested in a story idea, but when I offer an example of what it would be like, they then take an interest in it. Although perhaps just re-writing the plot snippet might be a better solution as opposed to listing a sample, lol?

I definitely like to know as much as I can before approaching, especially where people are hoping to take the idea. I think the way your plots are written out now works great, and I also love how you've formatted things!
