I'm pursuing a writing avocation to keep my mind sharp, or to sharpen a dull one, as my body adds more miles. People have told me I should write as my imagination is rich and diverse. Words of wisdom, and sometimes poop, come out of my mouth rather than out of a pencil onto paper. (That is, when my foot isn't in my mouth.) It's difficult for me to write. The challenge is interesting. Words are magical. I lose track of time while choosing them. I think it's fun. I hope it is occasionally fun for others.

Rickie1: I'm seeing this place more and more as a gathering of kindred spirits that share their spirit.

    DR DIP: well that is a good thing right?
    The FanStory 'family' is wide and varied each with a diversity of attitude, opinion, and beliefs and standpoints that to me is a very healthy vibe.
    We all come here because we share qa common passion to write be it poetry or short stories or scripts. We all tend to gravitate to those on here that share the same styles and interests in writing which is not a bad thing as long as we still have a very open mind on things so diverse to what you are used to.

Rickie1: I got my first 4 poems in for 2019. Now I'll see how I'll rank for a full 12 months.

    Jannypan (Jan) : Your rank will change from the posting you do throughout the year.

    Rickie1: Well my plan right now is do a few reviews a day of the stuff that catches my eye. Enter one contest a month. Work on my 10,000 goal. Post a poem 2-3 times a week or as the spirit moves me and make some friendly connections. There is more going on here than posting a few poems. I find the company of my betters stimulating. I enjoy the interaction between authors and the ideas floating around. Maybe a little philosophy as well. The ranking is a curiosity. There are so many that put more time in then I do. I'll never catch up but I'm OK with that as long as I'm having fun.

Rickie1: All time best again! I am thrilled. Thank you all for your reviews , support and constructive comments. 55 reviews! I've never had so many. Most of my reviews, if not all so far, came from far better authors, I am honored. For I'm just a hack newbie poet. Thank you all again. It's taking some time to thank all my reviewers but I will thank each one of you personally eventually.

    Dean Kuch: Congratulations on a job well done, Rickie.

    Rickie1: Third out of seven, I'm in heaven. Middle of the pack, I'll take that. Whoever voted for me, besides me, thank you very much. I appreciate your support.

    These contests are opportunities to try new stuff and learn. I have four books on poetry (who would have thought) at home now. I am enjoying the journey.

Rickie1: I'm not sure if this automatically carries from my profile or what but I want ALL to know I thank them for their support. None of this would have happened without you all.

All Time Best again! #4.for Evil. I wasn't going to promote this but several reviewers encouraged me to try for All Time Best. I'd like to thank them and all the reviewers for their support. I've only been here for a short time and EVERYONE has been wonderfully encouraging. All your kind words are motivating. I bought a book on writing poetry! Who thought I would have done that a few months ago. This has been exciting stuff. Thanks to all of you. Rickie

    Rickie1: "Recognized" status. Now, "All Time Best" status." I am shocked! Happy but shocked. I've only been writing for a month. Many thanks to all the reviewers. A special thanks to the people I review. I've learned a lot from your fine examples and your member dollars help me promote my work. This is quite a place.
    Thank you all. Rickie
