Letter from the Editor
By Chrispian H. Burks

Hello Majestics,


"Time is not something you have, its something you make"
-Chrispian H. Burks


Yes, I just quoted myself. A reminder to us all that there is never enough time to do all the things we hope to get done but there is always room to make time for the things you love. Lit.Org has been my baby for over six years now and I hope it shows. I made some great strides this month working on new features for the site and I still managed to spare some time to wash my cars, do some spring cleaning and go out and get some fresh air.

You may notice the site has very few ads now. I removed most of them for several reasons, but most of which is that I just didn't like them. We will still have some affiliate links here and there to help the site pay for itself, so far we've made a whopping $5.50 in the six years we've been online, and that's NOT counting the cost of running it! Don't worry though, it doesn't cost much to run. We'll cross that bridge if we ever need to.

I've added a dictionary lookup on the site and will expand this more soon with more features, like highliting a word on a page to define it, including a lookup on your own site and more. Take a look at The Lit.Org Dictionary.

This month, I'd like to challenge everyone to write something every day, no matter how long or short, just write it. I've been working hard on several projects but I've managed to "make time" to write something every day. I hope you do the same!

-Chrispian

Second Chance Reading List
Lit.Org has gotten pretty busy over the years and as a result some items get pushed down the page pretty quick. We've been working on a an alternate view of the front page that will allow a longer listing and items will stay on longer. In the mean time, I've pulled a list of items that need a little attention. Take a few minutes and read through some of these forgotten gems!
