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.

Hello Insert,

Thank you for the read and the cement.  I mean comment.   It is amazing how few words are needed to get the bare bones of a story. Unfortunately, I have a problem with brevity because I always seem to take the view why use ...

Yes, it doesn't surprise me

Yes, it doesn't surprise me that you are good at alliteration.  You are a true poet.  You see and cleverly express what you see which helps me no end. I think I just don't have a poetic soul but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the work of people...

Hello Rhiannnonw,

Had to congratulate you on reaching 1000 pieces of work.  What an achievement.  I remember Tina reaching that milestone too.  This poem was up to your usual standard.  Clever and insightful.

Hello DiHard,

I wish I could write like that.  That's poetry that is.

I enjoyed reading this but where does it come from?  You see things that a pleb like me never see. Hey Ho!  That's the way of it.

What an absolutely glorious poem!  The imagery you have managed to conjure up is amazing.  I envy your talent.   Now to read the poem by Rhiannon that gave you such inspiration.

Hello Rhiannon,

This is a nice description of Spring.  I particularly liked  'triggering their floral treasures...'
