Everyone these days fancies themselves a writer.
Well, at least I do. And my neighbor. And my sister. And the person who lives below me. A number of people I went to law school with. All those people in the coffee shops with computers. Or journals. Or iPhones. Or coffee. That Tom Clancy guy. Oh, and that Twilight person too. The one who writes those vampire books. About vampires. Who, apparently, love humans. Not for eating. For loving.
Well, hell, I say, here you go, Everyone. Knock yourselves out.
The site: www.booksie.com.
What it is: Yes, it’s a site just for you, Everyone. It’s straight forward. You write something. You post it. Others read it. You get feedback and exposure. If you’re good enough (yeah right), you get published. Or you can build a fan club. Agents love those. Or if you’ve finally become bitter and jaded and angry and have decided that writing’s impossible, here’s the great thing. You get to be a reader… I mean, a critic. So tear up someone else’s work. Leave mine… I mean yours… alone.
There you have it. A site that combines the fact that everyone’s a writer with that old saying, everyone’s a critic. So go ahead, get published. I dare you. I’m not bitter. Or anything.
