I have recently been searching for a website that has a good to large user database, where I can upload short stories, and people can read them, rate them, etc. I tried writing a long one, ended up losing all the papers I wrote on, and have thus turned to writing short stories instead. But, having the opinion of my friends is not enough, so if anyone can help me? These are completely original stories, they have nothing to do with anime characters or such. But, I'll probably be writing short stories like that too sometime. So, if anyone can help, that would be great! :P
EDIT: It would be great if the website had protection laws on the pieces I write. I would like no one stealing and making money of my short stories. Thanks again!
