Come to The Shed if you need some love. Someone is usually there 24/7.
I've heard this mentioned a couple of times here.. what is 'the shed'?
The Shed has quite a history here, and the story of how it all began is lengthy. (I don't want to drift this thread, but will explain because I did
mention it above).
It began with a Valentine's Day thread that turned into a friendship between a lot of members. When the thread was shut down (due to Valentine's
being long over), I was upset to have lost...that place.
I began a story called: The Shed
(2 years ago)
Just a story in the 'short stories' forum, that's all.
But the other members missed our camaraderie also, and they too began writing about their travels to, The Shed.
This grew into a storyline that had multiple writers...a true collaboration.
We all became 'family'...some even met in real life, and there is a thread here about 'The Gathering'.
The Shed is in it's 5th thread now. Members have come and gone, but the writing for the story continues to this day.
The biggest thing about this Shed, is that it has become a support group...a place to go when you're lonely...a place to meet new friends. Everyone
doesn't write 'story', but many do.
We offer love and respect, laughs and magic/fantasy (dragons, pixies, elves, etc.)
Everyone is welcomed, and we are from all around the world, so there is usually somebody there 24/7...which is why we reach out to people who are
wanting/needing company. If anybody here wants to just 'pop in'...tell them jacy invited you! (those Shed people have got me through my lowest
days...sometimes they are the ONLY people who are there for me).
