Hi. I got an email that told me I had the highest scoring story on SOL a week ago. "Love's Distant Shore" was number one, then number two, and now it's number three and this person emailed me and said, "Wow! You must be really good."
At the same time, I'm pretty sure I have the lowest scoring story on SOL..."Betsy's Bad Intentions" and so I'm wondering if, "Wow! I must be pretty awful."
Since it's the end of the year and people make such a deal out of scores, I thought I'd make my statistics available to readers and authors alike. Believe me when I say it isn't something I'm doing to stroke my ego, but rather put my money where my mouth is...So to speak.
So you can follow this link:
And know that I really am here for the fun of it...And the email, which leads me to this little gem:
Message from: Thomas <firstname.lastname@example.org>: RE GoP - Boyfriend
Just plane wrong. No class this time at all. 13
years olds have some. They are much too smart for
this. This caused me to loose what little
excitement I had. Daughters do not take this
crap. Mom's even those who have to bow to their
circumstances do not let their daughters take this
shit; no man is worth it. (Has it happened in real
life? Sure. That is what CPS is for. You have
contributed to it rather that warning against it.)
As a reader, you have belittled us.
I always like to finish off the year by contributing to the downfall of civilization through short fiction. I dunno, for some reason it just makes me feel warm all over! To think that somewhere out there a child and her family are suffering because I decided to throw some words down and post them just to get my perverted jollies...Is there anything better in all of Christendom?
I didn't think so....Except maybe belittling readers.
On the other hand, it is just a fucking story, Tom. Let me see if I can make amends and influence you to (A) stop reading my stories altogether. Seriously. I don't need you. And (B) Turn off your computer, go downtown, and volunteer at a homeless shelter. Don't just sit in the dark and jerk off, change society for the better!
Did it never occur to you that you're supposed to feel something when you read? :)
