Where is the Participation?

Hello Writers,I've been scanning through groups and notice that a lot of people post poetry, comments, start discussions, etc., but when I get down to likes and comments, more often than not, there are two zeros.Are these groups just "every man for himself" or are we here to help one another?  If we don't like or comment or reply or join a discussion, or offer some advice, what's the point?Three options come to mind.  We aren't interested.  We're too  busy or we just want everybody to see our…See More

Where is the Participation?

Hello Writers,

I've been scanning through groups and notice that a lot of people post poetry, comments, start discussions, etc., but when I get down to likes and comments, more often than not, there are two zeros.

Are these groups just "every man for himself" or are we here to help one another?  If we don't like or comment or reply or join a discussion, or offer some advice, what's the point?

Three options come to mind.  We aren't interested.  We're too  busy or we just…

Pat, top of the universe to you,  and welcome to authors.com  …from The Chuck!
        I write sci-fi novels filled with adventure, mystery, romance, drama, horror, and plenty of comedy… Sci-fi for every adult human to enjoy. I'm also a well-known published poet. When you have a few free moments, please check out my Authors page and a few of my videos and blogs I have recently added. Many of my blogs consist of free to read enjoyable sci-fi stories that I plan to edit and unite these twenty-two stories within an  eBook titled: 'Epic Marvels'. One of my newest sci-fi novels is titled: 'They!', which is somewhat related to the 1954 sci-fi classic movie, 'Them!' I'm currently working on a sci-fi mystery titled: 'The Mysteries of Fuller Park'.  A fun story based on the urban legends of Fuller Park, Athens, Texas.   

Please let me know if you'd like to become friends.

The Chuck!

Hi Pat,

Love your blog post about participation. I agree 100%.

I am a copy editor and proofreader for EditProof, a boutique copy editing service company based in Los Angeles. I used to do freelance work exclusively, but I’m preparing to start a copy editing and proofreading site solely for new self-published authors.

EditProof will officially launch on June 25th, 2012; however, as a promotional effort, I’d love to have the chance to do some copy editing work for you, completely free. If you like my work and have some paid projects for me down the road, that’d be great of course, but I’d be happy just for the opportunity to network and share my services to you.

I’m sure you have a story or two stored away somewhere on your computer that you haven't had the time or motivation to work on recently; let me edit it for you!

Simply, send me the first chapter of a story you're working on, and within 24 hours I will return to you a copy edited and proofread version of your work, accompanied with one page of editorial tips and suggestions-- for FREE. It's a one-time trial and you'll receive free editorial feedback on the work you've done so you can proceed writing with more confidence and less uncertainty. You'll be one closer to getting published!

What do you think?

Thanks for taking the time to read my email. You can e-mail me at my personal e-mail stephaniequimson@gmail.com. Have a good day!

- Stephanie
