twinklepoems: Wanted to enter the ABC poem, I know the deadline is today, but it is still today and I can't find it any where! :(
Can any one help me? I don't quite understand the new format.

    Julia.: The day on Fanstory rolls over at midnight Eastern Standard Time (U.S.). So technically it's now Jan 13 here.

twinklepoems: Hey Shelley Kaye, I took off out of Long Beach. I live in Torrance.
Nor84, Catalina has changed! No cattle! Cars are now allowed.. smart cards and mini coopers and the shops are pretty upscale! Beautiful views!
December 21 at 2:32PM

twinklepoems: Wow! I was gone all day to a place called Catalina Island, it was great fun and then I came back to all these Birthday Wishes and the cute graphics!Thank you all so much! It really adds to my page and my birthday! Thank you! Hugs and kisses!!

    shelley kaye: *waves*

    where'd ya catch the boat? newport or dana point? (i'm next door to dana point)

    happy birthday!!
    December 20 at 12:36PM
    nor84: When I went there (decades ago), I made two mistakes. The first was flying in. The airfield was on top of the island, and the wild bus ride to the beach was scary. There were cattle and (maybe) buffalo, and mirrors at the curves so the driver could see if any were in the road. The second mistake was riding horseback to the top of the island. Had to eat dinner standing up. At that time, there was a bird park, and there were glass-bottom boat rides around to the isthmus. Spent a couple of days in a rental, so had time to do all that.

twinklepoems: It's my birthday but I don't know how to put up any of those cute anima things or glitter bombs...if someone does I would love some!!
December 19 at 5:16AM

twinklepoems: I always love being reviewed by someone who has been on here only since this month, who has posted nothing, who has no fans and is following no one. Ghost FanStorians....ooooooo! Interesting how the reviews are never...ummm...substantial...constructive....Oh, well!
May 7 at 11:00PM
    nor84: the 3-star review? That was from a Standard (nonpaying) "member" and that's why I block them. To block standards, look under advanced options when you post, and you can block reviews by nonwriters. Be sure to recheck with the next posting, because it can change back to the default, which is to allow standard members to review your work.
    May 7 at 11:21PM
    twinklepoems: Thanks nor82. How do you know if a member is Standard or just when you check the profile? Thanks so much for that tip!
    May 7 at 11:39PM
    nor84: It shows on their profile. Most of ours say "Premier" but a standard member just has "standard." Actually, you were lucky. Often they leave 1 star reviews.
    May 8 at 12:19AM
    Sally Carter: I've said this many times before, to the point now of boring even myself, but sometimes the comments by standard members are more truthful than those of premier members, who've been sucked into the 5 star culture, or who don't want to hurt friends. I'm not saying this is the case here (who knows?) but I think we should dismiss clearly rubbish comments with rueful acceptance and be prepared to consider the articulate ones as dispassionately as we can. Even in major newspapers, an album or show which a producer clearly thought was worth banking money on, will get slated by a reviewer and given one star. In fact I saw such a one star review in a magazine this morning.
    May 8 at 4:14AM
    Sarkems: Quite right, Sally. And we mustn't forget that some of our best reviewers have said they will be going to standard membership only, soon, so we might have to suck it up and let 'em in, good and bad.

    Malachai: I actually love to get low reviews they challenge me to write better and I agree new people don't hold back they say whether it is a talented good poem or a boring untalented one. I just love honest feedback. I do not howevr like to feel like another pet is one upping me because they may have just one a contest and their ego is way to big. I hope to always remain humble here and grow as a writer and tell the truth about the poems I review in a kind considerate way. I was knew and blocked by a top ranked author because she totally misinterpretted my feedback. Anyway it is a shame cause she is an incredible poet and now I can't see her work or tr to recocile her misperceptions of my feedback. It sure can get tough on here at times but I am here for a while. Love you all even the author who blocked me.
    September 19 at 2:25AM
    Malachai: and p.s. my contacts are blurry and I sure do wish comments here had a spell check. LOL I just re-read my comment and there were quite a few mis-spells after I put artifiial tears in my eyes. OOOOOOPPPPPPS!!!!!!!

twinklepoems: I miss squid, if anyone knows him/her tell them Twinks says "Hi".
April 23 at 9:01PM
    Lovinia: Hi Twinks ... I don't know squid ... I am having squid sushi on Friday..... you can join me. :))) To be serious, I will say "Hi" before I eat it though.
    April 25 at 5:10AM
    Treischel: Haven't seen Squid since February. Last I heard, he was in the hospital with sever Liver disease.
    April 25 at 10:10AM
    twinklepoems: Lovi, haven't had squid...had his uncle calamari though!

    Treischel, Thanks for the information. I am sorry to hear that!
    April 25 at 1:09PM
    sandramitchell: Hi Twinklepoems, just reading through your notes, I don't know if you know it now, but Squid died some months ago. I really liked him too, we had lots of early morning chats.
    December 14 at 1:47PM

twinklepoems: Thanks everyone who voted for me in the Naani contest. Tuesday would have been my Mother's 93rd birthday and this is my second year with out her. What a fitting way for me to be able to honor and remember her.
April 4 at 5:18AM
    Lovinia: Hi Twinks

    I just read your beautiful naani. A well deserved win. My deepest sympathies for your loss. Congratulations. So nice to meet you today. Hugs - Lovi xoxo

twinklepoems: Hi, I am doing my own informal poll. If you review someone's work would your rather they send you a thank you or review your work? (If you could only pick one)
February 1 at 4:11PM
    DIS-illusioned: If I gave them 4 stars, or less, a simple 'Thank you' would suffice (I don't want them reviewing my work--LOL!).
    But, if I gave them a 5 or 6, then they better tickle me good with fluff reviews and ONLY 6-star ratings. LOL!
    :)
    February 1 at 4:41PM
    nor84: If they feel I had a lot to offer them, I'd appreciate a thumb vote, or I'd like a review. "Thanks" by itself doesn't mean much. Could be "Thanks a bunch" or "Thanks, you jerk." The reviewer can't tell what's meant. Some people, though, don't review prose, so from them "Thanks" is OK by me.
    February 1 at 4:49PM
    TDLRasmar: I always like knowing what people think about the things I write, so I would rather have a review. It makes no difference if the review is praising or critical, in fact, I appreciate the critical ones more than the fluffy ones. I always feel that if someone doesn't like something then I need to take a hard look at it because if just one person doesn't like it and you project that into a larger population it could be hundreds, or even more. I try not to take things personally and I honestly haven't found anyone that was intentionally cruel. People here really want to help.
    February 9 at 11:24PM

twinklepoems: Hi I was wondering if anyone can contribute to Missy's book or how to contribute or? It is a lovely tribute. Twinkle
January 3 at 2:52PM
    shelley kaye: it's a multi-author book, so anyone can add a chapter - all you have to do is go to one of the chapters already in the book and click on "add chapter"
