What com petition? Personally, I use medium to connect with other people who have a love of writing, reading, and have intellectual qualities that I find attractive and fun to be around.
I feel I get more out the platform then I ever put in and if I make a few cents great.
I enjoy releasing some horniness and thirst in writing erotic poems, and enjoy taking my heart and passion into normal poetry and writing comments.
I hope some people smile and feel good, or if my erotic stuff helps a person make their mind go blank and "happy" ... It makes me happy
So, I may have lost the contest, but what did I really win? Folks like yourself that I can read and enjoy, and wish and hope that all their dreams are met.
If an author finds passionate excitement in anarchy, game on!
