Of False Readerships

So I write and post on Mibba sometimes. My Roma story, and my Cassa story, and some other mini ones. And I was going through the writing contests, which I don't usually do. The "prizes" just made me gape.

You win a comment to X number of your stories? You get a subscriber to that story? Even if it's horrible?

I write to get read. Not to get some superficial subscriber who will just up my numbers, or some comment that says "Hey. Great story. Here's my post for winning the contest."

Sickens me, really, that people would get excited over these things.

I'll stick with writing and gaining a readership with hard work, and have a true readership to boast for it.
