Found the site in November 2011. Love the friendly and easy format. Write stories and the occasional poem. Have published three books, all available from Amazon. The East End Butcher Boy, Eastendbutchers Short Story Collection and The Men In The Shadows.  Always amazed at the diversity of the site and the quality of the writing. Try to write as much as I can and like to try different styles. Hope you like my stories.

I agree with everything that's been said before. This would make a great start to something much bigger. You have us all hooked by this, we want more of it. But then we're all very greedy people! Loved it. Great read. Fully deserved Golden...

Good concept with lots of possibilities to explore. This chapter does need a lot of tidying up though. Lots of typos to sort out and a lot more punctuation is needed to make it flow. Good start so keep at it.

I wrote "Knob" on everything

Posted on Thu, 03 Dec 2015

I wrote "Knob" on everything I could put my hands on at school. I used to pinch other kids books and write "Knob" and draw a cock all over them. Why? No idea. Just thought it was a cool thing to do. We all did. The drawing of a cock and balls on...

Posted on Mon, 23 Nov 2015

This is so much better than the first one. You've tightened it up and not used too many words. The first two paragraphs are good. But I'd lose a few of the "inhales, exhales"

Keep writing and keep reading. Try a few different genres as...

Me? I loved it. We say sorry

Posted on Thu, 20 Aug 2015

Me? I loved it. We say sorry for almost everything. Sometimes it's brave to say it just the way it is. "I'm not sorry for telling you you're a complete moron and making you cry." Being just one of them...

But then there's the ending, where...

Firstly a big warm welcome to the site. Nice start. Liked the way you used Macbeth lines to break this up, I thought it worked well. Good dialogue. Very current and beleivable. Look forward to reading more.
