Hi Cat. I enjoyed reading your suggestions and the way you used the red highlights which make your points stand out firm and imprinted into the readers psyche. The book option is an awesome idea. Take care and cheers.

A lot of interesting and creative ideas. I know that one of my biggest disappointments was when it came time to publish my first book, there was no way to download my work into a publishable format that I could send right off. Instead i had to recreate every one and then search up my pictures once again from my archive that has over 9,000 photographs in it. So it added about 2 months to the effort.

    Wow, tha'ts a lot of work... yes, I wanted to use my own artwork and photography as well as typography ... have you ever seen the book, House of Leaves? It's a fascinating book in that the layout has everything to do with the storyline... i"d LOVE to create a book like that... it must take a friggin genius with an entire lifetime to devote to the layout. LOL
    well, I do have nothing but time. ;)
    Thanks Tom

Thanks for the interesting and well presented ideas. I like how you have highlighted the main points.

Of course, we all want to be published so I especially like your idea for printing your portfolio or some part of it into a book. What a great idea to have a hard copy and maybe even a great way to give as gifts and get your work out there!

You other ideas are also fun and would liven things up.

Thanks for the positive suggestions. Good luck in the contest.

I agree Cat. I have began printing out my own work to make a portfolio. I would love to have the option of having a portfolio made on site

    I find they print out yet but change the font size because it always prints out larger than what is shown. Thanks Cat

Hey Cat! Fantastic ideas in this write. I especially like the idea of printing off books, favorite reads/reviews, new writer listings, and the birthday listings. I too would like to be able to wish others a happy b-day.

    Thank you SWJ, I appreciate that.. .I've only just finished reading them myself... took me till now, with all the entries! I'm glad to hear you are reading them all. I think that will be the MOST important thing, and not the one who actually wins, but the change (if any) which is brought about by this contest. Obviously people are HOPING to affect change!
    Thanks so much

you have presented some marvelous suggestions. I especially like the one concerning suggested reading. We all have favorite writers that we read, and would hope that they are being widely read. Thet would probably be an easy upgrade, requiring little effort. The Fanbook idea is awesome, but I am sure that would involve some a good deal of work. Have you suggested it to Tom?

    HI DAllas, THANK YOU SO MUCH once again, for reading and having such lovely reviews and such generosity... This much be my lucky day! Also, I'm hoping that Tom is reading ALL of these entries, and is open to suggestions... I'm not the only person in the contest to suggest the book idea, so I do hope that something happens with that idea.
    Thank you once again, for this review and rating, I am most grateful

A lot of great and fun suggestions. Love the birthday idea and the suggested reading. I try to welcome the newbies and suggest writers they might enjoy.
Right now your fan base is the way to read. I would love to see a contest for poems or stories that are over six months old and that have not been entered into a contest. Pick your favorite poem for contest . This will also get your work out to all who have not seen it and do not know you. Not all of us have time or money to enter a poem for every contest and you may have some great work that has not fitted into a contest category.
Love the book.com idea, too. A lot of people, (not me ) would love to see their work in print. I, on the other hand, will wait till I die then my child will publish me and I'll be famous. (LOL) LMAO...... joking I have been published in various anthologies when I was younger. Fanstory is enough recognition.

    HI Linda,
    I know, I do the fan base thing all the time, but I would like to find others also... and so,yeah, finding them is key.
    I'd like to not HAVE to wait until I'm dead... I was hoping to rest by then... I'd hate to know that i have to keep writing, even after I'm dead.... then again... I'd sure hate to have to stop too.
    ;)

    I think word of mouth is good, too. That is how I found Sara (Mr. Dark) and you.

I think your essay makes some very good points. Many people are on the site for fun and don't want to get involved in a lot of politics regarding the site. They want to read and write and log off so they can write some more. I particularly like this one:
"Instead of having to review the TOP poems and prose pieces, maybe ANY piece could earn you points?"
