Hello all,

I had been part of the workshop when it was still part of The Cult, and it was very helpful in many respects, and not so much in others. Besides the point. I've joined this website, and the workshop to follow, because the writing aspect was always the biggest part of the cult for me, and its departure made me morose. Seriously, hello, I'm here, now, also.

Not so helpful in others?

Do tell.

Grotto: Welcome to LitReactor. I think you'll find a nice home here. Ellistyler from Cult here, if you remember me. I believe you reviewed a couple of my stories over there and I think I may have reviewed one or two of yours.

Not so helpful in others?

Do tell.
- I agree... Please, do tell.

Welcome, this place rocks. I heard of The Cult workshop two days before this site went up, so I don't have any opinion of what was going on there other than it seemed pretty dead.

Oh, and shun the non-believer! 
Haha...

Yes Rian. My recollection of your work is a highly positive one, and your reviews were always top notch too. To reply to Brandon: there were lazy reviewers on the cult workshop, not all, but some, and that added phrase was an indignant finger in their direction. Also, it was a call to hear how wonderful this site is and its workshop has been.

Hm, yeah, I remember that.  It got especially bad during anthology time when people where more concerned about getting points so they could submit their own stuff rather than trying to be helpful.
