Martin Honey, I hope you are feeling better now. When is Paul's surgery? I know you've posted before somewhere, but I forgot already.
I get so intimidated by the writer's who know exactly what to do when they write. It reminds me of when I was at a writer's site and there was a
collaboration area on the site. I wanted so badly to join in but saw how some of the writers were way above me in talent. There was no way I was going
to join in! Well by writing in other areas and being playful and of course bringing in my fantasy, I had a blast with a few of the other writers and
they insisted I join the writer's collaboration stories.
It was like pulling teeth! They gave me enough praise and encouragement, that I jumped in. I never had so much fun!!!!
I was able to hold my own and one story was just epic!
The entire site was filled with helpful folks who were either authors or intended to be. There were also folks like me who enjoyed writing as a hobby.
I think that's why I stop writing for so long, I don't feel it will measure up or that anyone is interested so I don't bother. I don't want anyone
else to feel like that. We can learn from the corrections of others, but I don't always retain info very well or I get confused. If it wasn't for the
encouragement of Lucid, I wouldn't have shared my simple poems in one of his threads. I did have threads where they were posted previously though.
I was also encouraged to write a piece for Masqua's tribute thread. I wasn't going to at first. I'm glad now that I did.
So take the advice from our folks who know what they are doing and for those like me who get intimidated and screw up, do it anyway. LOL
I was delighted by MikeStevic's story entry and hope to see more.
