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...

Hello Tina,

Hello Tina,

It's me again.  I sense your longing to be with your daughter shown by the words 'endless present' but then you would grieve just as much for the daughter still living in this 'endless present'.  It is a hard path you have to...

Yes, I think I am getting some idea of what you are about here.  I too have come to the conclusion that each day is precious and it is often the small things that give us the biggest lift.

Enjoyed your thoughts.

Dear Tina,

Dear Tina,

But it was you who was always there with the drink she was dying for.  You who sat on the edge of her bed when she needed you and not just at the end but throughout her life.  Maybe when you are asleep she comes and sits on the...

Hello Tina,

Old he might be and second best you might be,  but he is still the living link between the one that went ahead and the one that had to stay behind.

Hello Tina,

Hello Tina,

Yes,  you should think about becoming an estate agent.  You made the man's open air home sound like a desirable des res.  But  I too liked the idea that the man found a use for other people's trash in this disposable age....
