Smile ThinFiction for Readers & Writers

Hello, I am posting here to tell you about thinfiction.com, a new website for both readers and writers.

For readers, we try to provide the simplest experience possible for finding short stories in your genre. Additionally, we have a no sign up comment system so you can leave a thought and get back to reading quickly.

For writers, we try to be a starting point for you. Let your short story work on your behalf as an advertisement of your writing ability. Writers can link their name to a site of their choice - perhaps an Amazon eBook or a LinkedIn profile.

Thanks for looking!

Some criticism: the font size(or rather inability to change - other than switching from mobile huge and desktop small) and the colors (again not changeable, need at least black on white and white on black options), also limited to left aligned.

The tool looks interesting. You may want to indicate that the places to type in things like the descriptions of scenes is under the text rather than where the text actually is as people could get confused otherwise. Is it always going to just be online or will you at some point develop a downloadable app? If you were to make an app I'd suggest a feature like sending the filled in page to the user's email address for later printing. That might be a good idea even for the online page in the case of someone not being at a computer that has an available printer as well. Just a few thoughts.

thanks. No plans for an app yet, but we certainly want to expand the tool while keeping its simplicity. Sending an email is a good extra to add.
