The fact of the matter is a lot of us need a new home

Every so often the urge towrite something creative on Mylot gets to me. I am, like many here a person who is frustrated that all the places we used to put our creative stuff shut down/cheated us or look like potential cheats. But this, I hear people say, is a discussion site. I understand. It is like some of us are refugees who are here and love it but still long for our new writing home where we can really be ourselves but still visit an awful lot. Here is my thought. If Mylot works then it works whatever gets written. That got me thinking and dreaming and hoping and maybe even pleading. Please can we have a second Mylot with the same alogorithm. That could be the creative site for the writers and still we could be here and everyone could be happy and it would be like living next door and we could all be friends and hop on over and visit for a chat or a story or well please can the only website working for anyone who writes anything discussion of story or article or whatever help us writers out? I would start a writer's site myself but I am not clever enough with the alogorithms.

The point about blogging is you do not get the interaction. It is not an ideal alternative. Nor am U talking about regular blogging. It is nice to put a poem or story here but people do not like it if you do it a lot as it is not a discussion.

@Jackalyn so I think no need of having different my lot or opening another discussion site DAT works like my lot for the sake of creative discussion. those who always like the creative discussion will always like it and those who like other kinds of discussion will have their choice if discussion too.

I can see how those who want to do some serious creative writing are yearning for a site to showcase that work. Visiting back and forth from the discussion site to the creative writing site is a good idea, but I wonder if folks would just stick to the one site in which they are most comfortable.
