A Dearth of new Stories
If you have not already been to the Stories page you will notice that very little new material was posted this week. This is not an oversight on my part. Rather, it's the fact that just about everything people submitted this past week is not usable or acceptable for this web site. Below are the reasons for rejecting stories this week, in no particular order:
I don't like having to rant like this, but with the spate of mediocrity that I have been seeing as of late, I fear that I may become disillusioned with the whole idea of posting stories from other writers. I know there are great writers out there with great ideas and the rich potential for such stories to come to fruition; this is what I would like to see. Unfortunately, it seems that I have to dig through a lot of dirt to get at the few nuggets of gold, the rare gems that are truly a pleasure to read. I implore those of you prolific, established contributors to keep up your great work and maintain the high standards for quality that I want to get back on this web site. If you are a first-time contributor, please feel welcome to submit a story and don't be afraid of being rejected (I won't specifically call you out and berate you on this web site or in email unless you give me other reasons to do so, i.e. being an asshole), but just keep in mind that I won't just post anything out of kindness anymore.
