OH my bad! I have so many things on my mind from here in real life and then try to come here and write. My mind is often muddy. I do appreciate your pointing these things out though. Thank you!


Sometimes I'm like...now what was said back there on whatever the hell page it was on? LOL I get lazy and don't go back to re-read and clarify. So there you have it, I have learned something today.

I was going to make an entry today but so much crap happening that I am uninspired at the moment. My husband or sort of husband had his med prices go through the roof until some deductible or limit is reached. He needed meds today and couldn't get them. I'll pay for them so he has them tomorrow. I say sort of husband, because legally we are still married and living together but after over 30 years of marriage he decided he didn't want to be married anymore. We get along great but I guess he was hoping for a younger better looking woman. Long story. LOL Then my poor elderly Mom is always in pain and needing help and it makes me sad to see her suffer.

Sorry, didn't mean to dump my problems in here. I love co-writing with you and happy that you joined us! You have a great imagination! Very creative!

Trying to get sleepy enough to go to bed but so far still awake.

Good morning....

I can't stay here long right now, but just want to say something.

There are NO mistakes in this story. None.
This is an off-the-cuff collaboration fantasy piece by a group of people...many being new/first time writers.

It has yet to be edited.

Too much story is better than not enough.
Discrepancies can be 'fixed' later.

You have ALL done a fabulous job!! I am super proud of EVERY addition, and every participating member.
This has been FUN, and we have enjoyed doing it.

The onus would be on the editor to ensure that the details match and the story flows.
That comes later, when we decide the story is complete.

Much love,
jacy xoxo

I didn't mean anything bad yesterday. I apologize if I offended you guys. I would still appreciate being corrected myself. I learned a lot from tips and corrections from the folks at the writers site and have always appreciated what I learned. I am still learning. Now I feel like I made a mess of things when that was never my attention.

Maybe I should do like Dawg and take a break.

Hi Night!
What did I miss? (Lot of catching up to do)

Did you do a booboo?? LOL

If it's to do with the story - DON'T WORRY!
(It's just a story) ...and we ALL can take it wherever we want to!!

If it's something else??? Fill me in - so I don't have to speed read every post!!!

(and DON'T take a break unless YOU need it!)

Things were obviously blown out of proportion. I was trying to give friendly advice as I appreciate it myself when writing. The next thing you know it, Jacy is putting me in my place so to speak and phoenix and Jane are in agreement. So obviously I'm some kind of bitch for even thinking of saying such things. I'm out of here. I have enough problems in real life. This was the one place I sought out on a daily basis, but I am not apprreciated. If I get a yen to write I'll have to go to the short story forum.

I'm sorry to hear that you feel like that hunny.
I haven't been able to read through the posts yet, but from my own experiences, it's incredibly easy to lose the context of any comments/criticism. (They always seem more... "personal" than they were intended)
It's also really easy to misinterpret what someone else is trying to do or say.
You like to give friendly advice, as do lots of people (me too!! LOL) but when the friendly advice comes back, sometimes we take it too personally? no?
I should really shut up until I read the thread properly because I may be going off on a tangent totallY!!! LOL

I for one DO appreciate your presence and your writing. (I think we ALL do)
and I'm pretty sure that noone meant to upset you.

Remember when I got upset a couple of weeks ago?
Well, that was as a result of being told FLAT OUT that I was doing something wrong.
No ifs, buts or maybes. But that turned out to be a simple mis-communicated joke that I didn't get.
It's not always easy to pick up on the vibe with which a typed comment was written.

Deep breaths! Count to 100!! LOL Maybe re-read the posts that upset you and see if they REALLY were that bad?

Aww Hunny - We ALL have days like that!
Have you considered cuddling a flumphy comfy snuggly cushion, whilst dipping an incredibly huge bar of chocolate in your favourite drink??

Works for me!!

But I was just trying to be helpful in pointing out our mistakes. I make them myself and appreciate if it's pointed out to me. It only helps us to improve as we go along. Very simple little things. No one has to be a professional author or anything. It seemed like I was being chastised for pointing it out.

What the heck is going on in here today?

a reply to: Night Star

Let's remember shall we, why we are all here? We are here because we all have some things in common. We are creative, loving people, folk with empathy and character, and this IS the place we come to celebrate and share that aspect of ourselves.

We all love you Night Star, you know it to be true!

Not my intent at all.

I thought Pheonix was telling you that some things you had written were not consistent...that's why I said there are NO mistakes.

I only meant that to me, it's all good...and things like discrepancies can be edited in the end.

I was trying to be supportive of people who aren't used to writing...not wanting anyone to think their stuff had to be 'of a certain quality' to be a story addition.

I am truly sorry that you would think I'm that kind of person....to 'put someone in their place'.

Hi [[[Jacy]]]
Just to let you know that... That is exactly what I took from your comments too.
I'm still trying to catch up though!....
