Are you too busy to vote in the site contests? Some of our members put their work on display in our site's writing contests. It would be nice if we could support their efforts by taking just a few minutes to read their entries and vote. There is nothing more discouraging than to see a small number of votes...it implies that nobody cares. As far as "winning" or "losing", I have the utmost respect for these people who place their egos on the public chopping block. They are all winners in my book. No outside editing. No help. No place to hide...they expose their work to you for judgment. The least we can do is participate. Right now, there is a poetry contest in the voting stage. Some of it is very good. I have already voted. Won't you join me in offering your respect to our fellow members?
