Here, I propose six. There could be another number of reasons for especial praise. There would be an option of selecting up to 1 or 2. "Grand, flawed effort" and "exquisitely crafted miniature" are phrases in Michael Cunningham's account at Page-Turner at The New Yorker of this year's Pulitzer Prize panel's priorities in nominating book-length fiction. The panel agreed to favor "grand, flawed effort" over "exquisitely crafted miniature," if it came close, yet the judges rejected the panel's nominations and awarded no Pulitzer in fiction this year.
My own way of hitting the buzzer is starting to bother me.
Oh, my God, Ann this is so complicated I would be completely paralyzed. I can stand in the supermarket obsessing between two brands of cat food. I think it's sufficient to generically fave and if you want to explain which category it falls in. All that decision-making would make my head spin and I wouldn't have time to read as many stories as I'd like.I fave the current fave system for excellence in streamlining.
Late to this party, But, I like a tiered system. The options should offer more critical information. Thus saving too much comment writing time. I like the idea Ann and I think it should be explored, at least on a trial basis.
Favorite for I hate you for thinking of this before I did.
