I am mchapman-Mary. I am not a writer but a person with a passion to write. I became interested in poetry at an early age writing my first poem "Love" at eighteen years old. I have been writing on and off for a number of years.

I write very honestly and enjoy constructive criticism. All I want is for you to enjoy my writing. love, Mary

mchapman: although my health has been an issue, I continue to write poetry because it is a love I have for the written word. I am inspired by life and nature and sometimes I will write about my illness. I am always striving to be the best in what I do. if you do not see or read anything from me it is only because I am not feeling well. soooooo it is late good night....mary

mchapman: i am ok with constructive criticim, when you rate me a poor rating then please explain why....thank you
August 24, 2012 at 9:22PM
    nor84: Very few reviewers read the forums, so most won't get this message. If you receive a poor rating with no suggestions, you can ask the reviewer (politely) what needed to be corrected. Most won't answer, though. If the review is from a Standard member, you can block all standards from reviewing.
    August 24, 2012 at 9:25PM
    mchapman: thanks for the advice
    August 24, 2012 at 9:28PM
    Lady & Louis: Pop a note into your author's notes panel, or your profile notes, and with luck anyone reading your work will pay attention.
