There was a cool little site called ReadWave on which you could put your stories and even add a little thumbnail image to go with it, and quite an enthusiastic writers’ community was building up. People shared, commented and generally encouraged each other to keep writing.
But for some reason the site was closed and put up for sale.
The thing I took away from it though was that my stories should have thumbnail images. I’m going to make the effort to repair this deficiency.
