As always, superb presentation. An interesting message, too. I haven't been on site for quite as long as you, but there have been a few changes. We've lost some superb poets, for one. Thankfully we still have quite a few and new ones keep coming. It's good that Tom keeps on tweaking the site to improve its usability though, as always happens with change, these are generally accompanied by a few groans of despair!
I usually trawl the 'Up Next' section each day to widen my range of contacts, rather than keeping just within a narrow circle.

This is so beautiful, like an enchanted tale, the music, the pictures, the words. I like that you start this odyssey with the word "hamlet." Oh yes, it was magical a couple of years ago. But, now I know you and your writings! Blessings to your talent and for sharing it with me.

I must say you would be a hard act to follow if you lived in those ancient times when bards ruled the stage before the kings. This is well written with a great flow- 'ENJOY THE SHOW'

This is your world and no one can or dare try to take it from you. This might be the best piece from you that I have seen. This is as good as RGStar


"For, one day, you may have the floor, open your hearts, please, I implore.
Don't shut them out, it's wise, you'll find, to just be courteous and kind.
For, one day, you might have the floor, but you'll be shunned then shown the door.
Emotions spent, your message lost. (So, isn't listening worth the cost?)"

Wonderful you have to down to a tee, this is exactly what fanstory is about although I agree sometimes the reviews do seem to be a bit OTT to say the least but I do get the odd one that is not so postive which sometimes helps.

    Yes, I believe that's true, Kooky.
    There are many very talented writers here at FanStory who will offer you suggestions with tact and who also have your best intentions at heart when doing so.
    On the other hand, there are also a handful who do not, and offer criticism merely out of spite.
    Thanks for your comments.

I try not to get embroiled in these things, Dean, as it becomes more like forum discussions rather than review, but let me say, I understand the statements laid down. I kind of go ahead as always with positive reviews of help when needed, praise when deserved and explanation of theme if challenged or asked. I find that the best way.
Has suited me well.
Wishing you a good day...and may all find a way.
RGstar

Listening is worth the cost, so is reading and reviewing. For me I've learnt so much in the years I have been on F S. No, I'll never be in the Top 10, but I get just as much enjoyment out of it. I agree Fan Story has changed, but so have I, have we. Listen and learn and enjoy I say.
Nicely said Dean.
cheers,
valda

I couldn't agree with your more. I wonder how this happened. I have noticed social media, in general, with the popularity of
Twitter, has taken on a mean-spirited attitude. Words from the safety of computer screens bring out cowardly rudeness.

I like your poem. I've been studying about the Bards during the time of the druids. Their stories and songs passed history, legends, and wise tirades (sayings) that helped train and bond social order.

Your Bard is true to the cause. One must respect others to receive respect.

Here is your weekly or more six, Dean. This piece stands on its
own and the message was so clear that your explanation was in
some sense redundant. Simply dedicating this piece to your fellow
fanstorians who are committed to those who write on this site
was all that was needed. But I embrace your concern.

I think I saw one spag. Last stanza, first line. Do you really want to say "have
the floor the floor..." -Bill

Great poem Mr. Dean. I haven't been a victim...yet. I've gotten some 4 stars and crap reviews, but I usually just ignore them, and go on. BUT...if that became the norm, I wouldn't stay. A great poem, blessings...
