Get a grip.

How can I read three or four posts from one or two authors a day? My trackers list includes over fifty of them. I feel it isn't fair to those who seldom post untill they have someting worthwile. I try not to slight anyone, but when I read the same dribble, in a different form, over and over. I tend to ignore those.
I'm sorry but I have a life again, thanks to a divorce that was finalized after two years. A long time for some, but not for my opposing party.
Now, write from your heart people. Write realavency, write emotions. AD is not Twitter.
I am asking you to bring your writings to a higher level. Some are already there.
I don't like words for words sake.
Yes I still visit, but I am mostly dissapointed at the amount of work that is generated just to publish something.
All of my friends are capable of much more, and I will expect it.

If I don't review you it is because I have read your work and it don't do it for me.
Am I getting picky, yes.
My time is limited. But know I love you all.

ditto, many times what someone writes is good yet doesn't need a comment from me. And time does not let me read everyone's post. I would think that most of us understand that and allow for life in the mean time between AD. Good to hear you express yourself. Congrats on the divorce...LadyJ

Well I also agree to a point. I think that overposting of the same genre and style is going against the purpose of the den. I found that if I published and more than one poem a day it was ignored, I also found that short stories do not generate reviews. We are all paid members of the den so we can post what and as often as we want but if we do overpost or post the same old crap day after day then we cannot complain if we do not get reviewed. As you say Walt we can only do so many reviews a day and still do our own work as well.

Walt, should Leonardo da Vinci stop painting after La Gioconda? should Arthur Miller stopped writing after Death of a Salesman or Pappa Hemingway after "For Whom the Bells Toll"?
I am comparing us with them? you bet! because writing is also a therapeutic form for alleviating the soul of torturing memories, or, just any zany human being that can be called a poet will write like rain does, drops after drops, seemingly the same and a world of difference in between, because no two drops taste the same.
