A good story
Is really no different from a good bowl of spaghetti.
I ladle ideas on collage ruled notebook paper
With a serving spoon.
Sometimes dainty angel hair ideas
Or deep, round rigatoni ideas.
I add a coating of creativity, warm and with the perfect amount of spices
Thyme, parsley, rosemary.
Then I take a spoon and dig in, eating in big gulps
Not leaving until I’ve finished.
Then, once I am satisfied
I drink a swig of milk to wash it down
and nod in approval, smiling

Please please tell me what you think. I'm sort of low on feedback and ratings. And I know people read my stuff, I've checked. My question is that if 80 people read a certain story, how come I only get one comment? Seriously, don't leave me in the dark. Even if you hate it, tell me so.

I like spaghetti, so this was a really good idea to compare it to writing.

that's a good idea.  thanks for that.  I'd do it now, but then i'd have to delete it and wait the rest of my life for it to be reapproved :-)

Great concept.  Perhaps you could return to the "good story" metaphor at the end?

Daaaang. I would never have thought of comparing a good story to a bowl of spaghetti. Cool idea. And, a lot of people don't leave comments. Don't worry about it too much, don't stress over it. You should see. I have one picture that has I think 700 some people that looked at it and only one comment. SOmetimes it depends on the person. There was one person once who I knew from before I changed my username last year. They heard about my work from another user and that's how word got around about my work. Maybe the same will happen with yours. Try posting something in the writing forum and ask for feedback there before you post it like this one. The forums are usually answered quickly, so you may possibly have better luck with there, although I've never done it myself.
