A Note From the Editor

Dear fellow readers and wielders of the pen (and keypad *smiling*), I just want to take a moment to give you an update about the site.

First, we were recently blessed with a title wave of hits to the submissions tab on the site and subsequently we are receiving new submissions. We welcome this interest in the site from new writers, and we know that those writers who are published on the site will benefit greatly from the exposure (see our ‘Contributors‘ tab). So look for some new and exciting posts from contributing writers.

Second, although we have been primarily known as a site for writers, I have never intended to brand Two Drops of Ink as that alone. My goal has always been, and remains, for Two Drops of Ink to be both a place for readers and writers.

For writers, it will be a place for sharing, learning, and seeing examples of writing that they may wish to try themselves—which is why we take submissions from all genres (see submission guidelines). Also, we like to post blogs about grammar and literary agents who are looking for submissions. For readers, we know you will find interesting stories, memoirs, poetry, academic essays, and other writings that we hope you will enjoy.

Our goal is to be a win-win-win site. That is to say, we all benefit: the readers, the writers, and our site. We would love your feedback and comments. If you have an idea that you believe would make the site a better one, please email us at: swbiddulph_at_gmail_dot_com.

As some of our readers and contributors may know, we were recognized in January as being one of the top 100 sites for writers. This was a great honor, and we were listed with some real giants in the industry. That said, we still want to be a place that feels like home to both our readers and writers. We want Two Drops of Ink to feel like it is as much your site as it is ours. We want this to be a place you can come to relax, decompress, and read a good post.

Finally, we made a huge move in November from Blogger to WordPress. Some of our older posts that were imported still have formatting issues. If you see something we missed, again, email us so we can fix these issues. Thank you again for your support, readership, and your willingness to join the conversations in our comments section.

Kind regards,

Scott Biddulph | Editor-in-Chief

He and his family enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains where they live—especially their screened in back porch where they love to bird watch. - "I love realism. I love writing about the raw, down-to-Earth, heartfelt realities of life. I love to write in a way that reaches into the human soul. I love to take the greatest pains and struggles in life, and make them a blessing to others. Fantasy is a wonderful, interesting thing—but real life situations, feelings, fears, and dreams are an unexplored ocean of stories that need to be told." ~Scott Biddulph~
