FanStory: Introducing milestones! All authors now have milestones that they can reach by posting new writing. The first milestones for a new author will be sharing their first post. The next one is the 50th post. Next, 100th post and so on. These special posts will be highlighted to reviewers bringing extra attention to the writing. Your post will always feature this accomplishment when it is viewed and from your portfolio. Check out your next milestone from your status page! So what's your next milestone? How far away?

    Julcia: Thank you for providing this milestone structure. It is
    working for this newbie. My first post was bad, an implement
    of torture for Fan Story readers. It was accurately reviewed. I
    am a work in progress. Capable of making improvements.

    Sincere apologies for this poor work product. Through Fan
    Story's review system I am now able to punctuate with 50%
    accuracy. Poor, yes. But remember the significance of
    baby steps. Thank you all for your suggestions.

This year we will be offering this beautiful plaque as an option to the top ranked writers. These plaques are framed in cherry wood with a high gloss finish and are perfect for mounting. We are excited to provide these to the top ten poets of 2022 and the top five writers in the other categories. Ranked winners can also choose our customized mugs if they would prefer something to hold. Or a member dollar prize.

March 1, 2022 at 1:38PM
    Shirley McLain: I think this is a great acknowledgement from FanStory. I'm sure whoever obtains the status would treasure it. Shirley
    June 17, 2022 at 8:39AM


This year we will be sending a new prize to the top five finishers in the rankings. Previously we sent trophies. This year we will send specially engraved "trophy mugs". They will be customized to include your name and rank. We are excited to give them out this year. Enjoy the rankings!

FanStory: The Fan List menu item has been removed. From your "Social" menu choose "Fan List" to access your fan listing. Sorry for any inconvenience.
September 27, 2021 at 6:10PM
    Kelley Liberty1: I'm a writer and not much following anyone yet my writing form has been moved from my app you just put it there

    Lloyd T. Okoko: I'll tidy up. Remain Blessed.
    November 9, 2021 at 4:38AM

FanStory: Introducing the "FAN LIST" menu feature! Use this new menu item to easily track new writing from authors that you are a fan of. This menu item automatically updates every time someone you are a fan of posts something new. This replaces the "Buddy" menu item which is available from your profile.
September 11, 2021 at 3:37PM
    Jannypan (Jan) : How does one go from the last listing on their page to more of the fans? I know I have more fans than what is currently shoiwing.
    Thank you.
    September 11, 2021 at 4:37PM
    FanStory: The feature is to see authors that you are following that have recently posted. So the listing doesn't show all authors that you are following. It shows you the 15 that posted recently.
    September 11, 2021 at 4:52PM
    nor84: I hope it may be upgraded so I could delete fans that are dead or gone from the site for years.
    September 11, 2021 at 11:30PM
    FanStory: That actually went in today! Along with an update with the look and feel of your fan list. You can now remove someone that has fanned you but has not been active for six months of more.
    September 12, 2021 at 10:22AM
    AJ McCall: Wow. That's a really cool feature.
    September 13, 2021 at 11:26AM
    gudbjorg: I think that's a good idea as "FAN LIST" is more to the point.

    September 15, 2021 at 5:51PM
    Lloyd T. Okoko: I'll approximate soon. Romain Blesséd.
    November 9, 2021 at 4:42AM

FanStory: So you like free form poetry? No rules! You just wanna' write. We just added three free verse contests for a total of four! The next one up is the No Rules Poetry (deadline approaching quickly on this one). Also check out the Free Verse Poem contest, the Free Form Poetry Contest and the Free Verse Poetry Contest. Best of luck and we hope you enjoy!
August 13, 2021 at 10:46AM
    Jannypan (Jan) : These new site contests should generate interest. Thank you.

    Please consider adding new categories for poetry/prose such as: animals, science, and history (not connected as War & History).

    Dr. Nad: by Dr. Nad

    Let it RHYME

    I have a thing about poetry,
    I don't know where to start.
    I can't put my finger on it.
    It just seems to touch my . . . Brain.

    BUT . . . There's something that's irked me,
    and YOU probably think it's a joke.
    I will admit, it's somewhat whimsical,
    SO in fun I have to . . . Jab.

    I won't say I'M a poet,
    that's such a lofty title.
    But sometimes my thoughts flow,
    then other times they're stuck in . . . Neutral.

    (But back to the thing that bugs me,
    it's easy for me to digress.
    Too often I lose my train of thought,
    leaving my listener to . . . Wonder.)

    I have a peeve . . .
    And it's probably my pet.
    I will tell you what it is,
    but not quite . . . Now.

    I am sure that we all have them,
    you tell yours, and I tell mine.
    Of all the things that could frost us,
    For me it's the end of a . . . Phrase.

    I'll get intrigued with the title,
    of a poem I want to read.
    I'm engrossed with the first few lines,
    but it fails to meet my . . . Desire.

    If you go through all the trouble,
    taking so much of your time,
    picking out just the phrase that you want,
    why not make it . . . Sound the same?

    So if YOU ever take up poetry,
    and the limericks are coming fast,
    just remember this little ditty,
    and rhyme the word you put on . . . The end!
    August 28, 2021 at 10:22PM

We are so happy to share this new video. These are the words of Sandra Stoner-Mitchell that she shared with us. You may know her as sandramitchell. If you enjoy the video please feel free to share that or perhaps your experience at FanStory in a comment on YouTube.

    Gloria ....: So well done, Sandra. Professional, mentions many of the highlights of FanStory, and is a terrific success story. Bravo!
    July 20, 2021 at 3:16PM
    Begin Again: Congratulations on a job well done.

    You not only have found success in your ability to write exciting and entertaining stories, but you take the time to promote and encourage others to follow their dreams as well. I am so proud of all your accomplishments!

    damommy: I'm so happy for you! I just wish they'd used your own voice!
    July 20, 2021 at 4:08PM

FanStory: We got the message! Thank you! We added more in depth writing contests. A First Book Chapter writing contest has been announced. Start your new book with this writing contest! We didn't stop there. You can enter the Fantasy Writing Contest, the Science Fiction Writing Contest and the Western Writing Contest. These are not flash fiction writing contests. Judges will be looking for in depth writing! Help support these contests. Tell your friends. Share the news on your social media account. And enjoy!
June 9, 2021 at 8:31AM
    AJ McCall: Awesome! I can't wait to enter!!
    June 9, 2021 at 10:03AM
    Jannypan (Jan) : Thank you. Now, please, add some updated contests, and delete some of those oldies, but not goodies. There has been an overabundance of 575 /353/ 535/ 161 /2102/ etc. We need more challenging prompts that are NEW.
    June 9, 2021 at 1:14PM
    nor84: And, Tom, the prose writers would like contests that cover more than the genres you listed. How about Action/Adventure and Romance? Not all of us write Sci-fi, Western or Fantasy, but there are some who can write anything.
    June 9, 2021 at 3:55PM
    FanStory: Appreciate the feedback. We will cycle different types (like romance) if these are well received.

    The reason you see the 5-7-5's and the flash fiction contests is because they are so popular. The Sonnet contest, for example, sees a fraction of the entries of a 5-7-5. That said, there are many different type of poetry contests available to enter. You just see more of the popular ones because that is what authors enjoy writing for.

    But we do monitor the site member contests. If something does well (fills up for example) that's a good sign and often results in a repeat with a cash prize. So if you have an idea of what you think will be well received - create it.

    June 9, 2021 at 4:43PM
    Carol Hillebrenner: I have a first novel contest entry and will get it polished. Thanks.
    June 17, 2021 at 5:32PM

    cailinraine8: Thank you. I was a member previously and I am glad to see the changes you have made for the better. It is important to me that the writing that earns good reviews on here is of a high calibre. Otherwise writers are not learning to better themselves. I look forward to "meeting" new friends on here again. Thanks again :)

    Lobber: Re: "A First Book Chapter" contest closes in 2 days
    Please reply

    Re Document within a chapter

    In my first chapter of 2,138 words, a character finds a printed sheet of paper - a song sheet that contains 11 lines of lyrics.

    The finding of the song sheet document is essential to the story line of the mystery plot.

    Also, I have placed the document as an image within my chapter text. Is my entry acceptable or is the song sheet document with its seven lines that rhyme considered poetry?

    Happy Holidays.
    Is it possible to submit a different poem for the free verse Poetry Contest?
    I would like to exchange ?Your Light? to ?Stockholm Syndrome?

FanStory: We've updated your promotion screen! When you promote your work or use Member Cent Pumps, it's easier to use other certificates. For example, you can quickly see if you have a banner active. If not, activate one. All certificates are now available and usable on this one screen.
July 11, 2020 at 10:53PM
    Paul Borders: Hi Tom, I'm messaging to ask if a recently disqualified entry by the CEC can be reinstated. They said it didn't follow the guidelines of being a story for the Big Historical Event contest.

    If it can be reinstated, here's the edited version:
    Pope Benedict XVI was the first Pope to resign in over 500 years. In a recent interview with Joseph Ratzinger, he detailed why he stepped down. He was upset the Bishops referred to him as "Eggs". His dissatisfaction grew with his cell phone provider charging him Roman fees. Working church ballgames was demeaning; going from confessions to concessions. It made him uneasy listening to all the rumors he was going to get what Italy is shaped like. He had noticed the church attitude went from Vatican to Vatican't. The writing was on the wall when he found out he smarted off to his superior on Undercover Boss. A business opportunity presented itself for him to open his own pawn shop called Pawntiffs. He chose not to renew the lease on the Pope-mobile. Joseph concluded his comments by saying... "Popin' ain't easy".
    July 18, 2020 at 3:13AM
    John bailey: I will love anything that works to make it easier to promote my work thank you
    August 4, 2020 at 11:23PM
    Becky Kern-Taylor: I don't understand any of this. Where are Member Cent Pumps at? Where do I activate a banner?
    August 13, 2020 at 1:55AM
    Lulube: Tom
    I had a banner that I did not use for a long, long time until recently, and when I clicked on it, it vanished, it was lost. I do not know where it went. Why would this happen?
    August 16, 2020 at 5:05PM
    Jasmine Girl: Too bad. It looks like I will miss the deadline for 2-10-2 contest and lose $5.5. I will wait for the next 2-10-2 contest.
    August 20, 2020 at 2:43PM
    Becky Kern-Taylor: How do I "quickly see if you have a banner active"???? Sorry I am such a pest, but you see I have my grandchildren help me with things on my cell and computer. "But Grandma it's so easy you just do this and this and look, there you are". REALLY HOW DID YOU LEARN TO DO THAT. "Oh, I just know". That's when I slapped her. :)
    August 22, 2020 at 4:27PM
    joycetreasures: Thanks always for your timely response to my questions. It's always appreciated.
    September 5, 2020 at 7:51AM
    Becky Kern-Taylor: How would I know if I have a banner? Where do I find that?
    September 6, 2020 at 2:34PM
    Mary Hollingsworth: great and convenient improvement! Thanks Tom and Staff for making the writing and promotion features more accessible.
    September 10, 2020 at 3:40AM
    Possummagic: I can?t promote it because I want to enter it into a contest. If it gets reviewed don?t I lose that right. I haven?t tried to get it reviewed so I don?t know how it was available to be reviewed.
    September 25, 2020 at 8:00AM
    John Cole: Fanstory, I think I messed up promoting my poem book. I think it only promoted the first chapter. I was trying to promote the whole book for the seal review. Is there anyway to fix this?
    October 9, 2020 at 12:23AM
    Barbara Zapson: I do not understand your banners, member cent pumps or "other certificates." When I joined FanStory, I did so because I though that, once I paid for joining this "free submissions site", I wouldn't have to do anything but submit my stories and poems! Now I find I have to "buy" various items and don't even understand what their purposes are.
    Could you please explain all this to me?
    Thank you. Barbara Zapson -
    October 16, 2020 at 9:22PM
    Wendy G: I agree with Barbara Zapson's comments below.
    Is there somewhere which explains all the different elements to this? Like Barbara, I was interested in entering various competitions simply for writing practice and self-improvement.

    Cecilia Lynne1: A question that I am not seeing an answer. I was a member and writing under my same pen name in the early 2000's. Had to stop due to illness. Wanting to get past work reinstated or made obtainable. Work at that time was copyrighted?
