I just finished re-writing a story titled,"The Poetry of Avey" with the help of Sooz. My first three parts of the story were going fine but I got stuck and frustrated after that. I was about to delete the story until I saw that Scratch left a comment. If not for that comment....you wouldn't be reading this.
Sooz pointed out many, what should have been obvious weaknesses after I published the story. I had wanted to get it done because just thinking about it was wearing me down. I was exhausted by the end of the final part 5.
I am so thankful for the readers and writers here. Many times I have been helped to make my writing better. I've never felt confident enough to critique another writers works but maybe someday?
I do read and leave comments when a story or poem makes me feel something. I hope to retire someday soon and do nothing but sip good wine and read.
This is a wonderful site because of the wonderful people. I thank you all so much.
