I have been on and off Fanstory since 2003. Housemaid was my chosen name at the beginning. Then later, Lois Delaney, and now Drew Delaney.

I have learned a lot on this site, especially editing. Being a foster mother of three, once my own four children had grown, left me little time to pursue the dream of excelling at my craft. However, I still plug along and enjoy each and everyone here.

Many excellent, professional writers have crossed my path. Some have began here to develop their skills and are now amazing writers. I am so pleased to have been a part of this group.

I like good critiques. I will attempt to tell you the truth, rather than offer you what you may want to hear. I hope you do the same for me.
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will. ― Charlotte Brontė, Jane Eyre

Drew Delaney: I appreciate your help and support especially this NaPoWriMo month. Writing a poem a day is quite a challenge for this brain.

Drew Delaney: Well, I finally got my desire to write again. I had lost the drive two years ago. I just wish more people would read stories on though. Maybe it?s this Dickensian story that few are willing to read. I enjoy writing it so much, I don?t want to give it up so few ratings is what I?ll get then I guess.

    Eve Lovell: The poetry is where the quick money is, sadly. But the poets dominate the site, really. Keep going with your writing, and keep FS in perspective. It is a vanity site, and not at all indicative of how your writing would go out in the real world of literature, and there are a lot of reasons for that, but chiefly, the demographic. There are a lot of folks over 60 who are no longer in touch with popular culture, and they are not serious about making writing a career. I will keep my eye out for your work Drew, have a great day, wherever that may be, Eve.

Drew Delaney: I am back peeps! Finally after two long years. I have not written a thing since I left. Hope to change that bad decision in time. I just read that Dean Kuch has passed away. I am so sad to hear. Hope that there is no other bad news. Please inform me. Thank you and am so happy to see old friends are still hanging out here. Yay!!❣️

Drew Delaney: I guess I?m leaving all my friends here that I have grown to love. My membership is over and I feel I must spend more time writing than reviewing. Please e-mail me when you have time.
Love you and will miss you all so much! Drew xx ❤️
