Oh I Forgot - The Benefits Of Vocal's QuickEdit
Introduction I only have one story in Vocal Resource but today I have requested twenty of my stories to be moved to draft so that I can submit them to Resources I will also submit this article, because an observation in a comment from Naomi Gold made me think of a huge benefit of Vocal Quickedit which could only happen with a model like the Vocal one. If you want to find the quote it is in this story and you will realise why I am writing this.
I am standing in a forest, lost. I wandered in sure that I could trust my sense of direction, amazed by the trees with their tail, straight branchless trunks, mushrooming out to create a green canopy blocking out the blue sky and the sun.

However you get paid for reads and the 0.4c a read goes up to almost 0.7c a read for a Vocal+ member. Again the bigger your reader base and following the more you will get but I am not going into that there are plenty of better advisers on getting seen and SEO and here is my own piece.

Are Vocal Promoting Themselves Enough?

I am not blaming the creator, and it can be easily corrected, but I am blaming Vocal because this should not have placed.
