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.

This is a heartfelt poem written with difficulty I should imagine. It guides the reader through the stages of watching someone given 'Tthree Days to Three Weeks to Live.'

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...Read full comment
