I notice that the recent crop of stories are mostly still very light on comments.

We all did a lot of talking for a few weeks in this thread. It sounded very good. But it would be a lot nicer to actually reward the authors who have sweated and worked their way to a posting on SWM.

Remember, most authors are fueled by feedback. It doesn't have to be praise unless you feel that way, but it should reflect that you've read the story and thought about it. And maybe have a suggestion or two.

Even if you send a private reply to the author, a brief note on the forum would go a long ways to encouraging more comments.

I feel pretty bad because I like to comment. But I'm so far behind from work & freelancing that I've not gotten to READ most of the stuff from the last few months, let alone take the time to comment.

So I see the Library and I'm left with this sinking guilty feeling .... but one of these days I'll start reading things there again ... and I WILL make some comment.

I'm not commenting on Deviant Art either, nor have a posted the (few) things i've managed to commission lately. (I really need to fix that.)
