I hope it's not going to keep him from his novel? Wink

Yes, it looks like a procrastination tactic to me.

Shouldn't there now be some sort of prize for whoever can fit the most semi-colons in a drabble?

Very good idea, Rosen. As you say, sometimes it's just a misspelling or some minor point.

I have a pile of semi-colons waiting to go somewhere...

Are there any other kind?!

Rest assured that as Anna says, it will be the misspellings and minor points that receive the most attention. Moderation is still valuable in suggesting which drabbles make the grade, but even the best of them can include mistakes or need a tiny bit of tidying up. Hopefully between us all, we can keep the quality high and that will benefit BookHippo's subscribers.

RE: Introducing Drabble Hippo

I usually moderate a drabble if I see that there is none for that day. It's easy to do because there is a link from the newsletter but when there's a drabble, there's no link to the moderating page.

Help!
