Womanwriter has been writing for many years. She has returned to FanStory after a year-long absence, due to a house fire. She is glad to be back amongst friends.

Her experience with writing courses has left her determined to help writers avoid the heartache and disappointments that are produced from such oft time costly affairs.

Womanwriter shares her home with
3 large dogs and a husband (an OTR Truck Driver) who 'visits' about 12- 14 times a year for a total of about 50 days of 'together time'.

Though in her twilight years she has no plans of slowing down, and in fact, looks forward to producing a record crop of writings in the up-coming year(s).

She adds, "I am especially excited to have rejoined, and I look forward to meeting many new friends and fans alike."

womanwriter: Hey everyone! Sure is nice to be back - if even for a short visit. Just got home a few days ago from the hospital - had a close call with bladder cancer, hopefully that is all it was - a close call. I probably won't be writing much right away - but I will try to do some reading and rating. At least that way I will be able to keep in touch to some slight degree.
Well, that's all for now. Looking forward to readin' you all.

womanwriter: OK, I am confused again. I can't find out who made it all the way to 60,000 words, I can't seem to get to the voting booth. Can anybody help. I really don't want to read chapters of books that didn't get finished if they don't qualify for the contest, but how do I tell?

    another jim: Start counting...
    December 2, 2011 at 2:07PM
    womanwriter: God! I sure hope you are joking! LOL
    December 2, 2011 at 2:48PM
    purrfect tale: You, me, and Fleedleflump as the only 3 who hit the 60k. Click on contests then click voting booths, it's there now.
    December 2, 2011 at 5:27PM
    womanwriter: Thanks Kim. I sure do appreciate your help, and I LOVED your story.
    December 2, 2011 at 8:56PM
    Betty517: Yes you made it and I did vote for you but where's the rest of the story? I want to know what happened to Clarisse and who she ended up with! Betty
    December 20, 2011 at 5:24PM
    Betty517: YAY! I hear your going to continue your excellent story! I am thrilled! I'm on the moon!
    January 1, 2012 at 5:40PM

womanwriter: I made it!!! YAAAAHHOOOOOOO!!!!
61,000 + words in under 30 days - I am probably the last one to finish, but, Hey! I made it! LOL It sure does feel good. Now I am going to go to bed for a WEEK! (just kidding) LOL - But I definitely will NOT be doing a lot of sitting down for the next couple of days. LOL
Hope the rest of the team made it to the finish line.
A GREAT BIG HUG to ALL the people who have cheered me on and encouraged me every step of the way - I could not have done it without you. I hope you will all continue to enjoy the journey of "Clarisse", as there is still a lot of story to be told - I'll just be doing it at a much slower pace. LOL
Blessings & Hugs to one and all,

    purrfect tale: Way to go! Don't laugh about sleeping for a week. It sounds like a good idea to me.
    November 30, 2011 at 11:56AM
    Lois Delaney: Way to go, Christine. I am sooooo happy for you, and I love the story too. I will be one following for sure. You have me hooked. Hugs, Lois
    November 30, 2011 at 10:08PM
    womanwriter: Thanks Lois, I am so glad to hear it, though it might be a few days, before I continue with the story. i have a LOT of reading to do. LOL
    December 2, 2011 at 1:54PM

womanwriter: Well, the 50,000 has been reached for NaNoWriMo contest and I am less that 8,000 from the goal of 60,000 for FS. I had an especially hard time writing the latest chapter. I saw it clearly in my mind's eye, but had a great deal of difficulty getting it into words. LOL
Well, I am off to the next chapter!

womanwriter: Going out with hubby!!!! Back this evening or sooner. First date since the house fire - so it should be a hot one. LOL
November 26, 2011 at 9:44AM

womanwriter: Just discovered that you can only nominate a reviewer on time in a month - hardly seems fair when each review can take so much time and effort. :-(
Now I am wondering if I can go back and vote for previous reviewers and their reviews. Hmmm I guess I'll find out shortly.
Less than 14,000 words to go. Yahoo!!!! Story is looking like it is going to go way beyond the 60,000 words of NaNo competition, so I have decided to see it through to the end, no matter how long. Hope you will all syat with us on the journey, as there is still LOTS to come.
Thanks everyone, for all the help - it means the world to me.
Blessings & Hugs
~Christine~ XOXOXOX

    Laurie Clayton: Hi Christine,
    I have nominated postumously before now. Good luck with nano,
    November 25, 2011 at 2:26PM
    womanwriter: Thanks Laurie, I appreciate the heads-up. ;-)
    November 25, 2011 at 3:36PM

womanwriter: Taking a quick break - Brother is doing all the cooking, hubby is working on websites, 3 of the dogs are watching NFL Football (YES REALLY!), and it's up to me to raise my word count. LOL I hope everyone is having a great day with their family and loved ones. XOXOX

womanwriter: Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am not sure if I can afford to take Thanksgiving off or not - we'll see when (if?) I am even able to get out of bed in the morning LOL
My current word count is 44179 - just a little less than 16,000 to go! Yahoo! In 6 days - BooHoo - Just kidding! This is really just the home stretch.LOL
Hubby is home, so I am going to go get some ZZZzzzs

    purrfect tale: I know the feeling. I'll be at my desk, drumstick in one hand, typing with the other.
    November 24, 2011 at 11:19AM
    womanwriter: I have turkey juice on all the keys on my keyboard,, and my fingers keep slipping LOL
    Hmmm - just stop and eat - or perhaps be a REAL writer and starve while writing? LOL
    All the more power to you if you can type with one hand - I have more than enough trouble with TWO hands. LOL
    Happy Thanksgiving - the finish line is in sight :-)
    November 24, 2011 at 1:59PM

womanwriter: How do I use /access the lucky leprechaun certificates I have to use on my posted work? Sometimes they show up and I don't even know how they got there, then when I try to access the ones I own I can't find anyplace to do that. Hmmm - if you know please let me know.
Thanks Everyone.
PS I seem to have my computer back to normal LOL - I am HAPPY!!!!!

    nor84: Click on "promote" and you'll find the member cent pumps (MCPs) and the Banner Ad Supremes that you own. Pull down on the banner ad pulldown, and you'll find any Lucky Leprechaun certs that you have. Click on one and it will be used to promote the work.
    November 23, 2011 at 3:20AM
    womanwriter: Thank you nor84 I was able to follow your great directions and it worked! What would I do without my FS family & friends?!?
    November 24, 2011 at 12:55AM

womanwriter: Well that only took 5 HOURS! :-(
Now I have to go pump out at least 2,000 words today to keep caught up.
Please, keep my in your prayers.
Blessings & Hugs

    purrfect tale: I have to do 3000! Do you know how hard it is to typing with your fingers crossed?
    November 21, 2011 at 10:26PM
    Lois Delaney: So sorry to hear about your computer problems. I have different problems as you already know. I'm not giving up. Just won's be done until after Christmas. Too many other issues to deal with.
    Blessings and Hugs
    November 22, 2011 at 10:10PM

    Laurie Clayton: I know that I am coming into this a little late, but may I ask, are you using a laptop, notepad or a desktop computer?
    November 21, 2011 at 3:41AM
    womanwriter: It's a lop top, but i think we have it fixed. Out of curiosity, and in case I do still have aproblem, is there really any difference? Ain't it just the same box of cookies in a different box?
    Needing all the help I can get these days. I sure do appreciate you.
    Thanks Laurie
    November 21, 2011 at 10:00AM
    Laurie Clayton: Hi Christine, just a thought and it may be completely wrong, but have you checked your mouse pad? I had a similar problem a while back with the site pages looking very small and the text and link boxes were all crunched up. It turned out that I had inadvertantly made the changes on my mouse pad. If you tap your two index fingers onto the center of your mouse pad then move them apart, does this make the page better.

womanwriter: Still experiencing screen and (some) posting problems; here is an update:

Thanks for you continued support and encouragement; it means the world to me.

I am currently having some horrendous computer problems - EVERYTHING is microscopic on my screen, and chapter 9 in particular at this time is reported to be in BAD shape (commas & Spaces have gone amuck because I can hardly differentiate between commas and periods, and one space or two). I am so sorry, for the inconvenience. I have three IT gurus trying to get the situation resolved, but I guess it is not even as good as we thought. :-( If it is at all possible, and you choose to do SPAG patrol, please know that I am using copy & paste for later reference. In the meantime I'm still writing, but it remains difficult, so I would appreciate it if you rate only on story and not on format. Please say a prayer that I can get this fixed FAST.
I would really hate to have to withdraw from FS Contest at this point :-(
Thanks a million.
Blessings & Hugs,

    FanStory: Is the problem the text size? If so, you can change that through your browsers settings. Instructions. - Tom
    November 20, 2011 at 11:52AM
    purrfect tale: Christine - Oh no! This sounds to me like your monitor is going. Are other screens shrinking besides your posts?
    November 20, 2011 at 4:09PM
    womanwriter: Well thanks everyone for help & suggestions. It might be a problem with my processor(?) We have many areas fixed but somethings are still microscopic :-( This page is a little small, but still very legible, Thank God.
    I have no idea of what else to do except to keep writing, and let the chips fall where they may. Did over 2,000 words today - now my eyes are watering like Niagara Falls - and still I can't live without my daily dose of FansStory!!!
    Love you guys! Please keep praying - God hears all prayers and answers them too.
    Blessings & Hugs
    November 21, 2011 at 2:15AM

womanwriter: Well it LOOKS like my puter problems are over - at least it does HERE - I'm going to try and post the next chapter and see if it is still small again. I would cross my fingers but they are permanently froze in their keyboard mode.LOL

    turtledove: Hi, okay great! Will catch up with reading and writing ?? Will take a genie for me to finish...way behind, turtledove. Go Nanos go...
