Topic: The Way I See It
Some people may notice that previous comments written here were removed. I had nothing to do with that. But I do want to take the time to say how I see this group: it's a place for people to publish essays and other opinion pieces. Not in the forum but in the publishing part of the group, like, where we used to on the old site publish a written piece and receive and give reviews. On the old site, if one published an opinion piece or editorial, you had to label it as a short story as there was no other option. I see having this group as a solution to that misnomer.
Personally, I was never that much into chatting in the forums. I'm interested in writing and reviewing. And I see the forum as a way of adding to what's already been said in a review if someone is compelled to do that. I think the difference gets a little blurry when the group is called Editorials and Commentaries, but the intent is for the focus to be on the published writing.
