I know, I've been through that before. When I first started writing Starchaser, in 03, I noticed that after the OCA thread was started, I got a lot more feedback for it. I think people also respond better to stoires if there is a social thing going on around that particular genre, as it gets like minded people together, otherwise you just miss them! Story indexes are okay but the problem with them is that once they get too long, they don't have the same impact as a thread like this does as people just seem to post their links and go, at least a thread like this gets people to stick around longer and get to know other authors a little better. If anyone has read any of my stories then you'll notice that I write mostly about aliens, as I enjoy doing that and sometimes that makes people turn away even more, which is a shame, really. You should never judge a fic like that. I'm looking forward to reading the entries!
