Emeka13: Having been a member for just over a couple of weeks, I should still be standing on one foot like the proverbial hen in a strange land. However the reverse has been the case because of the welcoming disposition of other members. It now feels that I have belonged here for much longer. I am grateful to you all.My posts so far have received the most positive reviews I have ever known. Usually people read my work like a column in Washington Post and throw it aside. Even my dear wife is guilty of the same. She has often asked when I was going to publish so we could be rich. How annoying! Confession, there is still a part of me which keeps wondering why people are so nice on this forum.
Remain blessed, all of you.

    Emeka13: Hi Reachingforthestars,
    It is really nice being here, on FS. I feel so at home with everyone being very nice and encouraging. I often wonder what I did before I found FS. Thank you so much for being so welcoming and giving me this unique opportunity to share my work and receive honest feedback. Honestly, it's been great. Remain blessed. Emeka

    Carolyn 'Deaton' Stephens: Hi there, I have been here almost a year and each day grows sweeter. You will be amazed at the closeness you will feel to folks you have never met. I hope your wife is right and that you become published and rich. They say 'success is contagious', that would be great. LOL On the serious side, the publications of many authors here are nothing short of Professional. Welcome, :-) Carolyn

    Princesseunice: Welcome!! Welcome!!
    Like you, I wonder what I was up to before FS.
    I know you will have a great time here.

    Emeka13: Thank you very much Princesseunice. I am already having a great time.I can't seem to keep away. My wife has noticed that there are now three in the marriage. LOL. I want to slow down but can't. It's great fun. Remain blessed. You and indeed all other contributors to this chat must forgive me. I haven't got into the habit of reading my profile regularly but I have to from now on.I see that many members have sent me warm messages I hadn't even read before now. I feel terrible. Emeka

    pipersfancy: Well... you're well-established here by now... but I'll still say, 'hello!' and 'welcome!' I agree with you... the reviews are very encouraging as people are generally eager to read the works of others as they work on honing their own writing skills. I think that the feedback acts as a great motivator... I know myself that I'm writing with much greater consistency and as a result, my work feels as though it's getting stronger! Christina

    Emeka13: Hi Pipersfancy,
    Sorry for this very late response. Must form the habit of reading comments on my profile. I must admit it no longer feels like I only joined in Sept. 2013. It feels like I have been here all my life. Sometimes it genuinely feels like I am doing too much of FS. My wife says I have found a new love but I know it's not true. Here is wishing everyone a fantastic Christmas and happy New Year. See you in 2014 renewed, revitalised and ready to go. Remain blessed, you and your families.

    GE Parson: This ol farmer boy has been with FS about 1 1/2 years. Something you need to watch out for is becoming addicted to FS. Im in it first thing every morning, through out the day until bedtime, whenever I keep nodding off at my computer.

    Im not addicted, i can walk away from FS anytime I want to - I just don't want to.

    Emeka13: Hi GE,
    Is it just because the word 'addiction' has huge negative connotation that we find it objectionable? Ask any drug addict and they tell you they want to quit but can't. That is what we all are. LOL. The good thing is that it does not destroy you the same way drug does. My wife has quietly gotten used to FS as she now refers to it as my 'First Love'.I don't know if that is good or bad. But she is genuinely ok with me doing what I find pleasure in. Remain blessed.Emeka
