DR DIP: What's going on with so many 'revived posts' lately?
August 10 at 1:02AM
    phill doran: didn't you ask that last year?

    trimple: I revived a couple myself a short while ago. I was suffering a nasty bout of writer's blockage and I thought it might get me back to the site and get those wordy juices flowing again.

    And it has!

    DR DIP: That's sweet Trimple. Can't recall having to revive a post but if it gives one's muse back well its got to be a good thing hey.

    Phill, I've asked many things twice on this site but don't ever remember asking that question.
    Maybe I should keep a diary of the questions I ask? lol

DR DIP: When subtle touches indicate intent,
the mood will start to motivate the hips,
and slowly heightened senses will torment,
and moisten deeply inside tender lips.

"Sweet embrace" by Dolly

One beautiful verse

DR DIP: I have been coming here for over 5 years now. I live In Australia in Sydney so at the time of writing AEST is 1745hrs friday night
where is Fanstory headquarters situated again?
West or east coast of America.
I notice it is 3;45 am on this site that puts us 9 hrs behind but a day in front.
I cannot add new posts until 1500 hrs AEST so I assume that equates to 12 midnight in Fanstory headquarters
So what is the town in America where Fanstory headquarters is again? Just curious

    Ideasaregems-Dawn: Apparently you insist that I must mute you to keep you from writing in the forum (or on my page) that I am "a professional victim". This time you even suggested that I write a book called The Professional Victim etc. Tom Ens is well aware of the problems I have had on this site, including PDFs that don't download properly, many pieces missing, or posting too many times, etc. I have nothing to hide, and no hidden agenda, and he's tried to be helpful.

    My common-law husband of 28 years says I should just ignore you. I say that repeatedly harassing a 66 year old woman illustrates that there is obviously something wrong with you - there's something about ME that makes you keep coming back, even though I completely ignore you, and have done for months. It's not your business, so why else would you write the same thing over and over? (You're like a little boy in grade school pulling on a girl's pigtail.)

    Putting an "lol" with what you write doesn't make it any less insulting, or any less a personal attack (which is against site rules anyway). It just makes you appear pathetically weak. I'm not the first member to have told you so either - probably just the first WOMAN. B Mathews said exactly the same thing the last time you called me a "professional victim", and he's not even someone who is on my fan list of over 500.

    So let me stress, once and for all, I am not interested in anything to do with you. I think you hide behind "lol", pretending to be this "nice guy", this "funny guy" when you're really bullying people. I'm sorry for you.

DR DIP: I suppose the last few months has been a really good test on whether people read someone's poetry because they generally like it or because it has been heavily promoted and they only see the dollar value in reviewing.
I have not reviewed in recent months because I just physically haven't the time to dedicate that many hours to this wonderful site and feel fair about reviewing equally.
BUT, on saying this, on my fleeting visits these days, when I do have time to review I tend to reciprocate reviews to those that who still consistently review my humble writes be them only worth 2 cents to them and un promoted.
To those loyal fanstory friends I am forever grateful and when I get the time away from my current projects and resume to review I know who I will be reviewing first not only because I like their poetry and tend to gravitate toward reading and reviewing theirs but knowing they read ones work because they genuinely like it not because of chasing member dollars.

On saying this, let me say again, I really admire those that can find the HOURS to review and promote.... Kudos to you.

DR DIP: Little johnny is sitting at the dinner table with his young sister, Suzie and their Dad.
Mum has prepared dinner and tonight it is something special she has never served before.....It's venison
Suzie looks at her plate puzzled as it is served and says to Dad.
"dad what's this?"
Dad looks at Suzie and smiles and says
"Well Suzie, I'll give you a hint..."It's something your Mother calls me everyday"
Little Johnny, somewhat alarmed at this statement quickly interjects and says to Suzie....

DR DIP: "Every whisper
Of every waking hour
I'm choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool
Oh no, I've said too much
I set it up"

DR DIP: You have your reasons I've been muted
Petty reasons I've refuted
Well now that I've been executed
I still sit and wonder why

Should have been here in the clique
Guess I wasn't very quick
Suppose my wounds I have to lick
I say this with a sigh

Been on here for 5 years now
Fellow Fanstorians take a bow
Don't take me serious, don't have a cow
If your ego has been dented

Fanstory is a lot of fun
Even when you're on the run
Full of banter and a bit of pun
Not something I've resented

Love to call in when there's time
Dropping in my simple rhyme
Rhyming verse is not a crime
And have different pronunciation

So I'll continue to post right here
Just those times when I am near
But getting muted is not very clear
You've caught my fascination

Suppose we are all shapes and sizes
Sometimes we make some compromises
And rate other's work in what comprises
A truthful explanation

Keep them coming and keep them strong
Write them like you should belong
Let others tell you right from wrong
About your written creation

DR DIP: In the nearly 5 years of coming to Fanstory, I have and had met many amazing people/wordsmiths who I have actually become friends with outside of Fanstory. I suppose that's what it's all about hey, meeting people with a common passion.
To those loyal fanstory friends who still go to the trouble to review my un promoted work I am very grateful
I don't post so prolifically anymore but still like to call in and read my fanstory friends' writes.
Unfortunately, I just don't have the time to review at the moment but will endeavour to get back to reviewing in due course.

Keep writing

    l.raven: Hi Waves, FanStory is not a life...and a lot who finally get their books written do the important things you need to do done...I fall off and on myself...but I do love reading the posts on here...some wonderful are one...and some wonderful writings...poetry...your doing keep that smile on your face...just take Linda xxoo
    March 24 at 2:32PM
    DR DIP: It's a pity that we all come "slaves to the system" It got to the point where I was feeling guilty for not posting or reviewing.
    Sometimes time must be spread across all passions.

    flylikeaneagle: Dr. Dip: We had ten inches of white powder snow on Saturday. Some of us have to shovel, do chores, and cook. Yes, I'm flying in to say hi. I've seen some robins and heard some birds sing. So...I'm inspired! flylikeaneagle

DR DIP: Is getting muted the same as getting one's poetic balls cut off? lol
March 13 at 4:33PM
    closetpoetjester: Are you missing your poetic gonads, dip? haha now THAT is a poetic vision indeed!
    March 14 at 1:47AM
    DR DIP: I am a Fanstory Unich! lol
    March 14 at 4:14AM
    Dean Kuch: Yes.
    It's even worse when you aren't told why you were muted.
    March 17 at 2:05PM

DR DIP: To those wonderful Fanstorian friends who continue to go to the trouble of reviewing my sporadic, fleeting posts these days I really do appreciate it and I deeply apologize again that I am not reciprocating reviews in kind of your wonderful writes.
Sadly I just don't have the time at the moment to fairly put in the hours anymore on reviewing everyone equally with the thoroughness you all deserve.
After I finish my present commitments I will endeavour to make the time to everyone review again.

Sincerely Dip

DR DIP: Missing that little touch of ghoul and horror already.
Hurry back Deano

    March 14 at 1:48AM

DR DIP: Tom thanks for removing my profile thought I suppose the word 'bullshit' was a bit to harsh for some sensitive egos and that might have offended I apologize..I spend for whole life doing that lol
January 5 at 4:41PM
    F. Wehr3: You do realize there are children on this site as well, don't you?
    January 5 at 4:45PM
    DR DIP: yeah I apologize you won't have to worry about that anymore
    January 5 at 4:52PM
    F. Wehr3: I doesn't offend me, and you can put whatever expletive you want in your thoughts. I would only ask that you consider it in further posts. The reason Tom removed the post would most likely be the argument between the three of you this morning. Getting personal with another member is not allowed. Just FYI.
    January 5 at 5:00PM
    DR DIP: I never saw the comments F. I was fast asleep down under and by morning it was gone.
    As I said you won't have to worry about me any more.
    January 5 at 11:13PM
    Dean Kuch: It was I who opened my big mouth, dipster.
    But, hey, last time I checked this is still a free country.
