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 Luigi,

Hello Luigi,

This one I especially liked because as a childl I used to go hop picking and i loved it providing no one expected me to pick.  I just loved mooching about on the farm as we lived in London.

I love rhyming poetry too...

Hello Tina,

I think this is  a poem that speaks of longing for maternal love  that is perhaps only realised when the mother is the one in  need.   But as mothers we ha v e to muddle through as best we can.  We get no training and we often...

This is so good   So full of mystery and suspense.  I can see the Puddle Pixies opening a detective agency at this rate.  Well done on  your cherry orchard much deserved.

Hello again,

Sometimes it is easier

to conjure someone else’s

reality- though,

is a reality conjured

a reality at all? ...

Marionella,

You astound me.  I cannot for the life of  me comprehend a talent such as yours when you are so young. 

This poem so simple in structure yet so profound in content.

Congratulations.

Joe,

You've always been a good story teller but this is something else.  This is a flight of fancy that I've never seen in  all your other writing.  It's as if you've dipped into another box in your imagination and if this is an example of...
