There has been lots of heartache from New Voices over on Eharl of late and most of it's due to certain peeps lowering the rose rating anonymously (without leaving a comment to say why they didn't like the story). It's happened to me but I'm pretty thick skinned though I can understand why some folks would be disheartened by it.
What I'd suggest is to read your comments, they are what matter. Most of the readers this year have been lovely and I've already had lots of useful pointers to help better my writing. Considering the entry I posted was my first (serious) attempt at writing, I am not expecting to get through but I am hoping for advice on how to improve.
And now for the best bit :o)
The winter's almost upon us. Already we are seeing more rain here than sunshine and it's dark when I'm going to work but, the best part about the winter...Vampire Diaries and True Blood will be starting here soon. Both of which mean a winter of swoon worthy men, my favourite vamps being Damon & Eric. Yum!
Which of these gets your blood pumping? I'm torn, can't I have them both? ;o)
