My pick for Influential Writer for 2017 is Blackrandi. Not only does she write excellent stories that us readers enjoy, but she edits for many of the other top authors. Randi, has also arranged for many of Literoitica's great writers for two special story projects....now that is pretty Influential. Since the western day, there have been a few more stories of the same theme. Good luck to all...WE love you all.
