I am still trying to get in

Joyce,

I do not know why it is so difficult to get in here. I used my old email address and there was no way you would accept it. All I got was conflicting information: that the address was not valid or someone already has that address.

Are you back?

Are you back? Really back? Can I start writing again?

AND SPEAKING OF RARE CURRENCY...

Lucid

I stood with my back to the wall and looked around at all of the people in those chairs. I remembered when we used to be called here to sit and listen to whatever announcement was being made. I never really paid attention anyway. Well, not until now.

One of the writers on Fictioneer is deceased

Larry Welch, who had written some short stories on Fictioneer, passed away on February 16, 2012.  I think his family want his stories to remain on Fictioneer as a memorial to him.  They have asked me to copy them for his daughter to keep in his memory.  Love, Starla Anne Lowry

My goal

When I was a little boy I wanted to be a writer. I have read a lot of books written by Jack London. Martin Iden was the the most favorite. In my dreams I was courageous explorer! This explorer suppose to write a big story about his life and adventures. I wanted to visit Alaska and North of Canada and feel all this atmosphere!

Sorry!

I'm still working out the plot of Spirit Splinters, Part Six, so until I figure out what's going to happen next the new chapter will have to wait. Don't worry, though-- it may not be that long after all. Thanks for reading!

Discourged, but still around

I have found a new word processor and am not having the problems I had before (or at least not at the present). I have added a new short chapter to "Pairie's Children, Back to the West".  I have been discourged because nothing was going right, but hopefully everything is straighten out now.

 

 

An Intro

So I finally took the plunge to join. I have no idea how often I'll post, or what stories I'll put up as most of my writing is taken up by writing stories for the RPG I'm a part of.

Amanda's Eyes, Chapter 17 posted

Amanda finds some friends, Ken does an over the top halloween display and we see Kelly starting to understand what she's done.

Enjoy!

Am I doing it wrong?

I posted "Side Affects" this morning, and I wonder what I did wrong. It seems to only work in a very wide window, unlike anything I have ever posted. Is my story too long? Did I enter it incorrectly? I need to know before I post the next chapter. Help!!

 

Thanks,

Wren

Happy Thanksgiving everyone

Hope you are all enjoying the holiday.

Amanda's Eyes, Chapter 16 posted

Another short one but with Ken's help Amanda makes an important discovery. More soon.

New help here on Fictioneer

Hi folks.

I just wanted to let you all know that as from now, I shall be helping Joyce with the running of this site, as she is stretched a bit thin and doesn't have the time she would like to devote to the site.

So if you have an issue, rather than PM-ing her, drop me a line and I'll try and sort it out for you.

Thanks chaps and chapesses,

Nick

Desperately need advice on story

The pastor in Chapter 2 of "Pairie's Children -- Return to the West" is based on an actual person in Birmingham, Alabama.  What is written about him is not considered extreme. He was a kind minister, always stopping on the street to pray with someone (has even stopped fights that way) and would actually give the clothes off his back to some needy person.

Amanda's Eyes - Chapter 15 posted

This is a short one but I wanted to let people know that I'm still working on the story. This feels like an interlude between major happenings to me. Let me know what you think. As always, comments and corrections appreciated.

I'm new here and I have a question

Hi All,

This may sound rather silly BUT, Why can I not access my "My Inbox"? When I click on it a message pops up saying I do not have access to this function - or some such foolishness.

with love,

Hope

I need to read my own stories

I had to change chapter two of "Prairie's Children, Home in Alabama".  Ruth was converted to Christianity in the original "Prairie's Children", so she doesn't need to get saved twice. So, I do need to read my own stories.

Publishing houses

I have noticed a few ads on the right side of the Fictioneer site about publishing our work.

So is BCTS like gone?

I was just wondering?

Amanda's Eyes - Chapter 14 posted

As always, sorry it took so long but I'm not a fast writer or editor and RL is pretty demanding. Appreciate comments and suggestions and promise not to take criticisms and corrections personally.

Amanda's Eyes - Chapter 13 posted

I've posted Chapter 13 of Amanda's Eyes. Sorry for the long delay. Again, not as carefully proofed as in the past so if you see errors let me know.

Next chapter should be a little quicker.

Poor Authorship

Maybe it was the type -- maybe I am a poor writer -- I have noticed

that very few have read the last chapters of my serial.

 

Am I a poor author?  Do I need to quit writing?

 

Love,

Starla

Type correction on "23rd Century Girl..."

If you found the last chapter of "A 23rd Century Girl in the 20th

Century" to difficult to read as I did, I finally obtained access to

Microsoft Word and corrected it. It is much easier to read now.

 

Love,

Starla

Enjoy!

How do I write to an author?

I've just joined today. I am told that I am not authorised to access my Inbox, so I presume that I can't compose a note.

How do I write to an author?

Misteaks

If anyone sees any error in any of my writings, please let me know. I continually find new mistakes every time I read something.

This time it was a misspelled word.  I wrote "rein" instead of "reign". I realize that I am not a professional writer and my stories may not be very good, but at least, I want it to look more professional.

With love,

Thanks everyone

Haven't had this many comments on a chapter before. Appreciate the reads and the responses. One of the reasons for posting a "book" on a site like this is to get reader response. Comments about specifics in a chapter are especially welcome. I look to comments for ways to improve.

Message from Starla

I have been longer than I wanted or expected on "A 23rd Century Girl in the 20th Century," so I thought I would bring it to a close.
