    Could Lose Some Good Writers

    I was chatting with one of my favorite writers this AM, and he said that he just feels like he's done with EP. He said he just feels like he's pouring his heart out and no one is responding. I think his actual words were "when I jerk off, I know of at least one person that...

    Spitting In The Wind

    Writing something on EP that never gets commented on seems like spitting in the wind.  Not that spitting doesn't feel good when something needs to get out there.  I love to get comments, even when they're a little bit crazy.  I don't need a pat on the head...

    Even A Smiley Would Do

    If you read my stories just put a little emoticon or something at the bottom...if it made you happy, or if it made you sad...hell I'd settle for a @_@ if it just freakin' confused you. A little feedback people is all I really ask.

    I Like Hearing What People Have To Say

    I do say, I am guilty of not responding, but I do honestly try to respond as much as possible. I'm not sure why I like it, maybe it's just appreciation for someone actually taking the time to read and think about what I just wrote, but I love responses.

    Think.. Just A Little Comment If You Like.. Rate It!

    If you like it - rate it. If you agree - rate it. If it made you feel something that you relate too - rate it. I do, so why can't you?

    its nice to just know what people think of what you are putting, if they like the advice or they dont like it, or if they can relate to anything that youve put, so that you know your not alone in a situation.

    Commenting And Rating.

    Rating, well, I usually just completely forget that the rate button is there. I try to comment when I feel I have something to say. But sometimes I am just at a loss for words or that someone has already said what I intended to. I try to remember to "like" people's comments...
