Decided to put some of my poems on "Fanstory" so that I can improve my writing skills. My punctuation, spelling etc. is not very good and although I try to rectify that, I struggle to remember what words to use. i.e. "to" or "too" "your" or "you're" etc. If anyone has any tips on how I can remember which one's go where, I would very much appreciate your response.

brenda bickers: I am sorry if I have not written any reviews for you all lately.
I did try to write some reviews but I think I need to take a break. Mum Died yesterday morning and I thought I could keep going but I can't. I hope you all have a great holiday this year and hope to be back soon.

    Kermit R. Mullins: I've been on FS for about a month. I've submitted poems to contest and non-contests as well. My curiosity so far is; I get views but no reviews, not sure what's up with that. If I read a poem, I will give it a review. Why does less than 20% of those that view, not review? Am I missing something?

brenda bickers: Hi Folks, just wanted to say that there are some amazing people here on Fanstory. I have been a member for just over four months now when I joined didn't have a clue about poetry and formats etc. It was quite daunting at first but some people were quick to help and support me and now I enjoy every moment of it. What a great place to find unselfish helpful friends. Thank you all so much.

April 14, 2016 at 7:23PM

brenda bickers: Hi everyone,
I have a poem posted in the music forum called "A Soldier Comes Home" Micheal Cahill has posted it for me because I didn't know how to do it. Would love it if you would have a listen:)) Thanks.
April 11, 2016 at 7:34AM
    flylikeaneagle: brenda: the music, words and photos are breath taking. I felt I was the Mom waiting on my son. So many have suffered the loss of youth who served our country. Our country should promote our country instead of fighting their battles. Love this. flylikeaneagle
    April 11, 2016 at 8:21AM

brenda bickers: Would just like to say a big "THANK YOU" to Michaelcahill for posting my poem set to music on the music forum as I wasn't sure how to do this myself. x
