I was introduced to Ficly during and online writing course from a SUNY (State University of New York). I had never even considered writing for a random audience. It was intriguing, but as part of a single week’s assignment for the course, I was compelled.
What a liberating experience!
Ficly seemed perfect in every way. A great format, even now, as I type I note the decreasing characters in the lower right…oh boy, crossing 600!
I enjoyed the community immensely as well. Meeting people, virtually. Collaborating in great projects like Nior and Ascension with amazing talent made me feel like I achieved a new plateau in my writing.
Now there are some downsides here for me that must be mentioned in fairness:
No comments on my work – that hurts, but is absolutely no one’s fault
The Sequeling function is rarely picked up – so much potential…
and of course the worst thing ever – Ficly dies.
Thank you Ficly for liberating my writing and opening my mind.
