The Poll Has Spoken

“The trouble with writing fiction is that it has to make sense, whereas real life doesn’t.”― Iain M. Banks

Well, as you all know, we are interested in your thoughts about fiction and the various adaptations of that genre. So, we did a poll (that’s always a hell of a risk with writers, agreed?).

Y’all gave us a great set of responses (Excuse the “Y’all,” but hey, this is a Southern blog). It seems that a writing contest brought the most votes, followed by Flash Fiction and an image prompt contest.

The poll results

Fiction poll at two drops of ink

The idea of “other” was for those who voted that way to add their thoughts in the comment section, but they didn’t. So, we will assume that “other” could be anything from the Zombie Apocalypse to Fan Fiction about Jane Eyre – which is fine…I think.

That said, we want to thank all our readers that participated in the poll and that gave us their thoughts. Please – always know that we are open to your thoughts, opinions, and comments. If you have a request, a concern, an idea, please use our “Contact Us” form or email me directly at 


A Writing Contest

So, it appears as though we will be having a writing contest. Since “Writing Contest,” Flash Fiction,” and Image Prompt” were in the top three, I say we combine them into one contest. Meaning, we will have a writing contest with an image prompt and you can either write a fiction piece or Flash Fiction. Give us your thoughts in the comments section.

Thank you

As always, we want to take a moment to thank our loyal followers, readers, fans, and contributors. I know (and have seen) some very successful writers, bloggers, and authors that soon forget they can only succeed with the help of their loyal readers.

After success comes, they climb into their ivory towers and speak down to the plebs below. That will never happen here. We love our readers, we thank you, and we want this blog to be your virtual library, your writing community, and a go-to for good writing/grammar advice.

Warm regards,

Scott | Editor

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—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~


  1. I can’t wait to see the submissions. I believe it will add yet another good reason to spend time at Two Drops of Ink. Not just advice on improving, but interesting stories, much like Michelle’s “Bag Lady” from the other day.
