So, I told you guys about being at another site writing competitively. They have a rating system there so that when you write something, people can view it and comment on it and rate it. The rating system is from one star (pretty bad) up to six stars (exceptional). If you get 16 reviews that are excellent or exceptional, your writing gets a “Recognized Status” ribbon beside it. Once you get passed 26 of these excellent reviews, you get an “All Time Best” ribbon beside your poem.
Yesterday my poem “The Old Man” got the “All Time Best” ribbon. I’m so excited! It is still entered into a contest that doesn’t get judged for another month or so, but it reached that status already. I’m very happy today!
I had to come back and add this in. I did the link to my post that had the poem in it. When I went back to that post and was rereading the comments on it, at the end of the comments there is a new thing now that links back to here. Pretty cool.
