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 Joe,

Hello Joe,

I'm so pleased you haven't given up on Trains.  It is an excellent story which I was really enjoying..  See,  I've even got a good memory but I think I said before that I thought Trains was even better than Missing and you know...

Hello  Richard,

Hello  Richard,

The postman is your crusader but in today's society, he would be the one hauled up in court even without the toast incident.  This is a really good story that held me riveted right to the end,  but I wanted the end to be...

Great poem Elsie.  I well remember when one of my girls went off to Uni.  I felt I was losing a daughter and gaining a haversack of grey better known as student white washing.

This is a fantastic piece

Posted on Tue, 10 Jun 2014

This is a fantastic piece that expresses your anger at the double standards so ruthlessly applied to women.  No, not even women, just girls who have been raped and are therefore blameless.  I think all religions are divisive because all teach...

Tina,

This is great.  I don't know how I missed it.  You have summed up the daily  frustrations so well.  Checkouts can be the very devil.  I don't know if it was you who told me of  a person with Parkinson's  who was getting some...

Hello Bee,

Hello Bee,

I thought this was a really clever take on a serious subject.  Witty yet thought provoking and I thought the use of repetition was effective as it brought the reader sharply back to the problem just in case they were lured into...

Linda,

I too love the humour in this and also think the photo is great.  Sixty four eh!  Well it's only a number and as I've often said before it's a well known medical fact that the more birthdays one has the longer one lives.
