I've been trying to get back into the writing groove. So I dug up all my old work--a couple of short stories, some kiddie stories and a poem--and posted them here, on my online writer's portfolio at www.writing.com. Do try to take a look--and give me a rating or review if you're up to it. This is the first time I'm actively plugging my writing--and exposing my soul!--so be gentle please.
The only problem with the online portfolio is that for free memberships for chennyboppers like me, you can only post a maximum of 5 pieces. Which means whenever I have something new, I have to delete something. The paid membership starts at about $10 for three months. That allows me to post up to 25 pieces. Hmm. Is it worth it? Theoretically, posting your work there is supposed to get you helpful feedback to help you improve your writing, but does it really work? Will it really help my writing? Or is it just the satisfaction of getting read, and maybe getting an occasional ego-stroking (or bashing!)?
But 5 pieces severely limits me. Then again, have to really see if I can produce more than what I already have. Must really find time and discipline to write again.
