I had to come looking for this having missed it when it came out initially. This is ready to go now I think. The responses are varied, but all worthy of attention. Good choice of topics this issue. These are all "hit home" subjects considering your audience here. I read every word of this with great interest. I'll miss this when it's gone, but it is ready for the next step. Great work. mikey

    Thanks. This is 'across the fence chatter' anyone might find in their own neighbourhood. The difference being, most people won't ask a question about themselves. It's always a friend of a friend of mine.

    In the nature of exploring new genres and opportunities, a little newspaper journalism was fun. Who knows? Maybe we'll start posting HOW-TO instruction manuals next. Thanks for the interest.

Very good answers today from all of you. Interesting questions too. I have something to add about the book. No one can win a libel suit without proving damage, physical or financial. There's no way a judge would believe a successful lawyer was financially damaged by a book where the names and places were all changed.

Sorry to hear you won't be continuing after this month. :(

    I think you are absolutely right about the book. I'm anxious to wait and see what she does. Thanks.

What a pleasant surprise from the dated FS postings and reviews. I love the multi perspectives from the three Amigas, their wit and intelligence in tackling the questions. These are frequent issues we face in life. You have brought in a whiff of fresh air to FS. Well done.

Terrific idea, SE.

So the poor old ex is going to take a beating in the book is he? Good point about the book being memoir or fiction. I'd go with fiction and then he can't sue, can he?

and knows of its existence (existence)

LOL, I love the cynic's response. Damn straight if you put in that much time and effort the book should be given room to earn interest. Another laugh with the "tragic" event your novel becomes a best-seller. All the cynic's points are bang on.

I'm kinda of the view if you don't want anyone to know your secrets you're best not to write them down.

LOL, born-again virgin? I've heard of them.

Oh boy that is a tough one with the senior woman entering the retirement home. They can get pretty nasty and say and do things they shouldn't.

Good advice all around. What's that you say? Some you don't dare put up for public consumption? Those sound like the good ones.

Best wishes with your project Amigas. I think it has great potential. I'm most interested to see where you go with it and which media you choose. I think YouTube would work really well.

Good stuff.

Gloria

    How do you put a column on UTUBE? Thought it was all videos. Guess you can tell I'm out of the techno loop, but do tell. That would be very coo. Is it possible?

reply by Gloria .... on 11-Mar-2015
    I'm pretty sure you can put voice only on YouTube but you'd want some kind of visuals. But the visuals could be whatever you wanted it to be. If I were you three I would be in "character". But, I don't want to speak too soon, because I don't know what your tone is. If it's very serious then that's a whole different thing.

    I'll store the info, but we're thousands of miles apart. Tough to coordinate.

Now, I'm no expert, but in years gone by (many years) article like yours have been answered by a single person. I like the fact that a question is responded by three people of different backgrounds and perspectives.

I read some of the reviews and am bothered by those who say this doesn't belong on the site. If one doesn't feel it belongs, then don't read it. Move on to the next... I don't like sci-fi or horror. I don't trash those writers. I don't read them. Simple, case closed.

I've enjoyed them, but I understand your plan and wish you three all the best.
John

    I'm sure everyone has a separate set of rules for what they perceive constitutes FS. I'm with you, I skip what I don't enjoy. My first love was always journalism, but it's time to move on. We'll have a couple more, then call it quits. Thanks for reading.

Hi my dearest Cynic?
Well, I love delving into a snippet of someone else's queries/quandaries... must be that snoop-dog in me that I don't like to admit I possess... and as usual, the varied advice was a entertaining, as was the candour from all parties concerned.

I do hope this column leads somewhere for 'The Tres Amigas', as, I for one have enjoyed what you and your two friends have attempted and successfully achieved... not a new concept, but one that I'm sure is ready to come back in a big way... maybe it's your time to shine, Doctor Cynic?

Well, we still have a couple of weeks to go, so I will enjoy the tid-bits while it's here... otherwise, I may have to try to find out where who has been smart enough to hire... The Cynic, The hooker and The Librarian... can't go broader than that... and one would possibly question if this is just three personalities of the same entity... smile))))))))... yeah, I know better!

With our thoughts we create,
a break for ourselves,
James vx's

    Definitely not three personalities of one writer, but I suppose that's a possibility if my companions drift away. Some folks are not enamoured with these columns, but I am going to try to find a home for this stuff. Hugs.

Hey--not fair--I just found fanstory, and you're leaving?
A really fun read, and I enjoyed the different perspectives.
Best wishes.

    Helena, welcome and I hope you enjoy your journey on FS. In my portfolio under the book heading, you can find the back columns since the launch on February 8th. Our weekly advice will continue for two to three more weeks and then it will end, at least here on FS. Thanks for participating.

This was a creative idea and I enjoyed reading it. It sounds like this is the last post. I will have to go and see if I can find the other ones. It would be fun to keep these going.

    We'll have one or two more before we wrap it up. The back issues are my portfolio. Thanks.

Still like the committee approach, still see no problems with the text and editing,
still find your overall project readable and interesting. You might have done well
in a county paper back when people read paper....

Ingrid, this is a wonderful idea. Now are these questions really from Fanstorians? I am anxious to know just who the Librarian is, but I will be patient. You a cynic... lol.. and you reply like one or I mean give advice like one.. you and Sasha are a perfect match for this rhetoric.. loved it... Jimi

    The Librarian can not be identified, and it wouldn't help, she's not on FS. The first column February 8th contained questions that I sort of filched from another advice column, but rewrote them. All others are coming from members. Now, I have no idea if they are creative writing or real, but they were all submitted.
