So are you enemies of each other? From the looks of it you have been around for sometime. Inside jokes or passive/aggressive banter long time between you 2?

I understand the need for validation of your work from others, I don't think it is insecurity. Every craftsmen from the literary to woodworker secretly enjoys a compliment after putting their heart and soul into any endeavor.

Don't let the lack of flags or stars stop you from doing what you enjoy. Also it seems the off topic crowd is willing to give more feedback . Post them as rants...lol.

Provocative titles also help draw views although I find it distasteful I've seen it work for others..

Also drop by the shed there is a real community here, if you engage them, they will be more inclined to read what you post.

Good luck friend,

Respectfully,
~meathead

The site is recently overwhelmed with short stories and poems mostly from the same few members. Sorry to miss yours. I kinda burned out on it in general.


Exactly. Few of us come by ATS for poetry. A joke maybe, but not poetry...or the typical short story that usually lacks.

I get enough story in the news. Whats with the flood of that here anyway?? People that desperately need attention from total strangers?

Or shovel by shovel, burying the site under a ton of... 'stuff'.

Nah, I like the Cowboy. If you ever need help on how to collect and keep hostages in your basement he's your guy.

We were conjoined twins until the operation.

I won't begin to tell you what he got and what I got.

You might like some of Peter Dale Scott's poetry as he is very much into the alternative world view . www.peterdalescott.net... He understands JFK and 911 along with activism within the politic .Maybe a few pointers might help you to turn the corner , so to speak .

The Shed is a thread where sorcery and witchcraft are openly practiced and is now lead by Nightstar, who weighs as much as a duck, and who eliminated the previous Shed manager several months back.

You are obviously a long time member and perhaps a bit cynical. Are you one of those that crave negative attention? I am a bit surprised by your lack of empathy on this matter. All because I dared to write some poetry and asked for advice?

No worries.

Just don't let Nightstar offer you anything to eat.

No need to, I have already surmised, he got the brains and the looks and you got the other parts.

Not directed at you at all. I was directing my comment at your comment about the way other members seem to tear each other up. Its all 'good fun'. You'll get used to who they are. A little while longer and you'll either (god forbid) become like them, or just steer clear.
