I used to have a profile, but it disappeared so I am writing this to bring things up to date.  First off, I love this site so much it has made such a difference to my life.  Now, if I write something and I post it to ABC it will get read by someone and if it's any way decent then it can get read by quite a number of people.  I feel my writing has improved and that is, in the main, because of the help I have received from quite a few people on here.  I don't feel qualified to give in depth feedback although I try to help with the more obvious errors, but I mainly like to encourage people as I feel that is the best way for me to give something back .  

The other reason I feel indebted to this site is the comments people have made about my work has increased my confidence no end.  Before, I would never show anything I had written to anyone other than my husband and his response was always, 'Yes dear, very good.'

So thank you ABC Tales and thank you to all the people who have commented on what I, laughingly,  call, my work.

Oh, Scratch,

Oh, Scratch,

Now what are we to think?  Brother Michael...at this point in the story he is such an ambiguous character.  On the one hand he seems to be everyone's friend but then there is that quiet voice that is so quiet he has to come up...

Scratch, I knew I would get here eventually. How well you planted the seeds for this one in the last one.  I am in awe.  You are wratcheting up the tension surrrounding Daniel so carefully and so restrained.  Now we have Jake's motives to...

All of this is so good but the very best for me is ' ...she settled with the only company she had ever felt secure in, the running commentary of her mind.'  Loved that and also '...melted into meaningless.'  Wonderful!  Congratulations on a...

Bee,

I can only guess at your pain and your new body if I can call it that,  will take some getting used to but with all that you have already had to deal with, I think your courage will once again see you through.  So, I will just try to...

Hello

Hello 

I did enjoy this. It was a story that sprung from good observation of human nature  because I've been one of  the circling predators , but get qute indignant if someone circles me.

Hello Bee,

Hello Bee,

It's so hard to say goodbye.   I know how I feel when I've had a house full and then they all go home.   I wander about the house hating the silence, but I console myself with thinking  about the good time we've all had being...

Hello Bee,  

Just read this and the sense of tranquility and quiet reflection really came across to me.  I loved this line

Bee,

Bee,

This is such a lovely expression of your feelings for your kitten.  I found it very moving so much so that it made me cry.  There are so many lines in this that touched me deeply partly because my Lincoln is lying beside me now.  I...

Dearest Bee,

I have just read this and I can so empathise with you  about the loneliness.  I remember how I felt when I was in pain and told by a not unkind nurse that everything would be alright I would soon get used to wearing  a wee bag...

Hello Tina,

Hello Tina,

This is another significant poem to add to your collection.  Beautiful but tragic.  Still you manage to write so well and if the poem concerns your daughter I am always struck by the wistful longing that lies just beneath the...
