Hi Steemians,

I just posted my first short story on dbooks, an awesome place to publish collections of things that you write on the steemit blockchain.

I feel like steemit is an awesome place to practice my writing for entertainment. In my first short story, “Treats in the Basement”, I draw on my experience as a graduate student and now postdoc in academia. I hope that it generates some laughs.

More stories will follow, as I have time to write, so please give me feedback and let me know which characters you’d like to get to know better.

Into the Future

There are still a lot of considerations for aspiring writers who wish to publish on the website. I see three major issues with publishing on steemit.

  1. Publishing on steemit probably precludes you from publishing the same content somewhere else. Most publishers want sole ownership over the content.
  2. There is no easy way to retract posts that are published on the blockchain. This would be especially bad in cases where legal action was taken against a writer, for instance in cases of plagiarism or defamation.
  3. There is a limited time before voting rewards are closed, so you can only gain rewards for your writing over a short period.
