Many of you have left comments and questions under the Share Your Writing page. It makes sense because that’s what most users have questions about. However, I think all those comments might be confusing to new users. So I’m trying something new. From now on, if you have a comment or question about the site or posting, I’ll copy and paste it here on the home page.
So here goes. Mikaela posted this question earlier today:
I’ve been thinking, I’d like to focus my attention to two or three stories at the most, instead of turning every idea into a story that I never finish. I feel overwhelmed at all the stories I’ve started, and I know that I probably won’t finish them all. So do you think I could remove Annavava, twilight hero (both versions) and Eagle? I know that’s a lot but I don’t think I’ll be working on those stories anymore, or at least for a while.
It’s no problem removing stories from the site. Just make sure you have a copy of your own before you ask me to. You might change your mind and feel like working on them again someday.
From now until December 30, 2014, The Young Voices Foundation is accepting short stories from students in grades K-12 for their writing contest, Young Voices of America Tell Their Stories. You can write any type of story you want but the story can’t be longer than 10,000 words. Follow this link to enter and make sure you read all the rules.
Thanks, Mikaela, for sharing this contest with us. Good luck to everyone who enters!
