I don't claim to be an expert writer, but I love to read, and I love to write creatively. I have a blog, not too many readers of it, but I have one, actually I have two. Both of my blogs are located in Google blogspots; one is titled TheOriginalCindy, the other is called Losing Fifteen. If you feel so inclined, pop by and say hi!

theoriginalcindy: When you meet someone for the first time, what do want to know about them in that first introduction?

    evilynne: Their name. Other things need time. Evi

    Gloria ....: What's a nice man like you doing in a place like this? ;-)

theoriginalcindy: "Intro to Storytelling" is one of my classes this semester. We have to retell a known story with a twist (using an children's tale, fairy tale, myth, legend, etc.) ... Any suggestions?

theoriginalcindy: How can I get more reviews (basically more opinions of my work)?
February 27, 2015 at 10:49AM
    nancy_e_davis: Fan more people. They will get a message and maybe fan you back. Your fans will get a message when
    you post. Ask for opinions in your Authors notes.

    adewpearl: and promote higher with a certificate and member cent pumps - it's a fact of life, the higher the pay out to reviewers, the more reviewers who will spend time with your post
    February 27, 2015 at 2:13PM
    theoriginalcindy: I guess I should review more, to earn more, so that I can buy the certificates for promoting my own work?
    Is that how the majority of you get the certs?
    February 27, 2015 at 3:57PM
    nor84: Yes. Your best luck is the postings on the home page and in Up Next.
    February 27, 2015 at 7:32PM
    adewpearl: yes, it's the only way I get the certs, through the reviewing dollars I earn.

    vapros: Cindy, get used to it. Reviewing is the name of the game here, and it fuels this machine. If you want to have your work reviewed, you must promote it. There are two ways to acquire the resources to promote. Nearly all of us review. A few buy what they need with hard cash.

    michaelcahill: You discovered one good way by posting something in the forum here. You just received input from four of the very best writers and reviewers on the site. Check out their profiles and read some of their work. Review some while your at it. You can learn as much reviewing as you can by being reviewed. Of course, ditto everything they've already said.
    February 28, 2015 at 12:35AM
    theoriginalcindy: Thank you to all. I have been reviewing as much as I can, as time allows. I will keep on keepin' on!

theoriginalcindy: I am currently in college, I returned at 35 years old to finish my B.S. degree in Business Administration. I want to major in Communications. Does anyone else have their degree in Communications?

theoriginalcindy: How do you find special time to focus on writing, while still working full-time and taking care of all the daily stresses and responsibilites?
February 19, 2015 at 3:59PM
    michaelcahill: You become irresponsible like me and neglect the real world in favor of the wonderful Fanstory family!!

    FindingTheVoices: It's a "ME" time for me to recharge :)

    FREEFEE: I think michaelcahill is write..the trick i trying to fit it in there somewhere...haha

    FREEFEE: I think michaelcahill is right..the trick i trying to fit it in there somewhere...haha

    gypsycaravan: Put it on your daily calendar just like any other appt. and adhere to it. If that doesn't work, use mike's method. LOL

theoriginalcindy: Do you find it easier to write on paper and transfer it to the computer, or to write by typing into the computer and revising?
February 17, 2015 at 6:44PM
    adewpearl: I write all poetry on paper first - something just doesn't seem like poetry when it's typed into a computer :-)
    February 17, 2015 at 6:48PM
    mrsmajor: I prefer to write it on paper first, I find less errors, when I do it that way...If I want to change my mind about something, I can always do so...
    February 17, 2015 at 6:59PM
    michaelcahill: It took years, but I write mostly on the computer now. I swore I never would. :)
    February 17, 2015 at 8:47PM
    nor84: I have a background in office work, so typing comes naturally. I've had a typewriter all my life. Remember typing (hunt and peck) and writing my name on my mother's old Underwood portable--and I do mean old. Probably very early 30s.

    February 17, 2015 at 8:52PM
    evilynne: I have come to use the computer more because it is easier to move words as they come to me.
    February 17, 2015 at 10:22PM
    ravenblack: All computer. It frees me up to delete, add and move text without hesitation. On paper, I get too anal, not wanting to scratch things out and edit.
    February 17, 2015 at 11:04PM
    FREEFEE: There arent any rules for me...if i feel like i need to right on paper,or i feel like typing...there's ways around it....somtimes i type with one finger will reciting a poem in my mind. Barriers are made to be broken , especially on this subject. If you feel free, your in the right place. If not, transform it.

    humpwhistle: I write prose, and I love the computer because I constantly self-edit. Erasures and cross-outs, deles and stets, yellow pads can't stand up to my torture.

theoriginalcindy: I am new to writing online and posting for others to see. I do love to write creatively, however, I am usually at a loss as to what to write about. I am hoping that these contests and other stories will help to spark some new ideas.

    IndianaIrish: We're glad to have you here, and welcome!
    February 8, 2015 at 10:28PM
    Linda Engel: welcome, it is a great site to share and meet friends
    February 9, 2015 at 1:16PM
    esacony: It's a good site to spread your wings and try new approaches to your work whether you are serious or just writing for fun.
