    GoodHearted Woman: Well, look at YOU!!! Yup, that be YOU. Honestly, Carol, I go back and read things that I've written and sent to people and there are words left out (mostly) typos
    (sometimes) and because this is liable to happen I am extra-careful, but still find
    mistakes. I am busy copying Humpwhistles flash fiction so I can see how it's supposed to look on the page. That is my one big desire right now--write a 'killer flash'. But it was awfully nice of you to offer to help me write a cinquain.
    Talk later & thanks again.

    GoodHearted Woman: Gosh, Carol., I didn't see this until now. But who better?June 2016 Recognized Writers. That barely covers it, but it's a start. Congratulations over and over. This is where I'm supposed to say "all that hard work paid off"! made it look easy. So happy for YOU!

ciliverde: I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.
TS Eliot.

ciliverde: I might have to try this:
From Melville's White Jacket, Ch. 45, "Publishing Poetry in a Man-of-war"
A volume of poetry written by an unfortunate poet on board was blasted from one of the ship's guns, and this observation followed.
"That's the way to publish, White it right into 'em...hull the blockheads whether they will or no..."!
Haha! Not that I'm calling y'all blockheads, you understand....

ciliverde: Feeling thankful this morning for all I've learned from a very helpful group of people here. Thinking about some of my favorite passages from White Jacket and Heart of Darkness too, which provide inspiration. But now...time to take the pups on a trail run.

ciliverde: I've been writing as a hobby since I was in high school. I mainly write short prose and poems but more recently started writing short stories. I'm a scientist by trade but have always enjoyed the literary arts, and am a huge fan of Joseph Conrad, Herman Melville, R. L. Stevenson and S. T. Coleridge. I can't hope to emulate those masters but I do enjoy writing as a hobby and a cathartic process. Carol.

    Phyllis Stewart: Welcome to the best writing site on the web. Oh, you'll find it has problems that will drive you crazy, but the people are friendly and helpful, so you can overlook a lot of the technical stuff. :)

    patcelaw: Welcome to F/S. I do hope you will take advantage of the knowledge of the many talented writers on the site. I have learned a lot in just over a year about writing and the wonderful use of the comma.
