This has inevitably been done before. If so, someone please link me to it. This forum, as made clear, is for critique. Not showing off your work. It's for feedback. There are many other forums for showcasing. What I propose, is a more direct way of showing off your work, having it be read by people. I'm not sure how it'd work, but I imagine you create a "Series", which could either be continuing work or just standalone short stories. Other users could "Subscribe" to a series which would mean every time a new instalment is posted, it'd go straight to their inbox or main page. A lot of focus would go to presentation as well, encouraging custom covers and illustrations. Feedback and comments would go straight to the author's inbox, allowing them to review and respond to the messages individually, personally. What do we think? This feels too obvious, I'm hoping there's something very similar around.
