  • Mood:

a quick poll

Apropos of a discussion with a friend earlier this morning, I am asking the writers on my friends list the following question: Why do you participate in short story anthologies?

I'd have made it a weighted thing if I could figure out how, but LJ doesn't seem to support a "in descending order of importance" poll option, so I'm just asking the same question 3 times in a row so people can choose the top 3 things that drive them toward participating in anthologies. :)

I participate in anthologies for the chance

to get paid for writing a short story
3(13.6%)
to be in a book with cool people
4(18.2%)
to do something I probably wouldn't otherwise
8(36.4%)
to try to reach new audiences for my writing
7(31.8%)
other to be essplained in comments
0(0.0%)
