I am a one-man crusade against reader apathy. When I read your work I attempt to give it a sincere critique because I know that as a writer you (hopefully) appreciate constructive, in depth analysis. 

I like to know that my work is getting exposure and that people enjoy reading what I write, but at the same time the number of "reads" and "votes" I have doesn't matter all that much. I would rather deeply touch only a few people than have massive exposure to lots of people who won't remember what they read in a week.

I write for myself first and foremost. I write to make myself a better writer. I will trade a shallow positive review for a negative, constructive review anytime. I also guarantee that if you leave me a thoughtful critique or review, I will most likely return the favor.

A poetry and prose journal of sorts. Be forewarned though, you might not get what you are expecting. Added to on a semi-regular basis.

Prologue for a Military Sci-fi book/novel/novella? I am planning on writing. Positive feedback and constructive criticism always help.

Good story, although I think the line could have been integrated a little better. As is it seems a tad irrelevant. Confused on whether auditor was...
