I'm married to a wonderful man that I met 49 years ago! We spend most of our time working together making wagon carts from old lumber and leftovers from the antique shop we owned for 20 years. We take them to the Trade Day Sales here in Alvin, Texas.
I've 2 sons and 3 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
I started writing in 1992 when I worked at the Texas Dept. of Health in Houston, Texas. I wrote during my breaks and on trips back and forth to work. A lot of the work that I will send in to view...I did back then. I wrote about 15 poems and 2 Children's books.
I love this site and the people on it. Everyone has been extremely nice...even when pointing out all my mistakes! lol
A lot of things I'm doing from the contest, will be trial and error! I have so much to learn. I never realized there were a zillion ways to do one style of poem! Hopefully I can learn a couple of them!
Just recently I sent one of my children's book to be published. Hope to have it completed in a few months.

RoostyNester: How many poems are you allowed to enter in this site? And how many contest are you allowed to be in?
June 27, 2016 at 1:37AM
    kiwisteveh: Hi - welcome to the site.

    You are allowed to post two things per day, poetry or prose.

    Contests? You can enter as many as you like - just read the conditions carefully to make sure you are eligible.

    FYI There are two main categories of contest. Site-sponsored contests are free to enter and offer a prize of $100. Member-created contests require an entry fee in member dollars (often around $5) and the prize is a proportion of the pool.

    Site contests are obviously more popular and therefore harder to win!

    All of this information is available in the FAQs under the Community menu. Any other questions are probably better posed in the Forum (also under Community Menu) Putting it here in your profile may not get seen much.

    Good luck!

    TAB_that's me: I think there is a limit on how many contest per week, something like 5, but I'm not sure about that.

RoostyNester: I'm new and not sure how the member dollars work. Do I need to pay cash, or can I earn them from comments on other writers work?
June 26, 2016 at 10:09AM
    Lynn27: Member dollars are site currency are earned by reviewing other members. You do have an option buy member dollars with cash.
