Selling Poetry on Constant Content

Postby HiredGun on Wed Jun 24, 2015 2:08 pm

I thought about selling rhymes,
But maybe I should get with the times.
If they just sit and never sell,
Isn't that just like writer's hell?

:lol:
Noticed that CC has poems available for sale. Anyone had much luck selling these?

Not sure if they still have it, but page through some of the olllld old stuff and you'll ask yourself why you get those "missing comma" rejections. lol

They used to allow first person too. If they still have it, you can read some of the personal stories of lonely housewives and single moms. lol

I remember Suite101 started off like that too. People would come to the forums asking why they can't have their personal stories on the site when so-and-so from 2001 wrote a personal blog story.

I'm glad CC is much stricter now. If it's true you're judged by the company you keep...

Yep! This place would be just another iWriter if it wasn't for the standards. I always thought one of Suite101's biggest mistakes was lowering standards. This place has seem to be a wee bit less strict, but still strict.
