Letter from the editor

W.Com, Home for Writers

         After nearly 30 years, I retired from teaching July 2001 due to heath issues. I felt lost at sea with no way to steer the boat called life. March 2, 2002, a friend introduced me to Stories.com. I read and reviewed writings from unknown people. I wrote and saved stories and poetry to my port. My first contact with the Storymaster came when my port on the free membership couldn't hold another item.

         For a few months, I would delete an older item to add a new item. Then, my email held a gift: Someone had gifted me a year's membership. At that time, fewer levels of membership existed as now. Also, Stories.com became Writing.Com. I found a home.

         For the first 15 years, I stayed active on the site. I joined and started groups; I mentored members (returning the favor I received from others); I held contests; I visited on scroll/messenger; I reviewed hundreds of items written by W.Com members.

         I also moved from a black case, to a yellow, to a blue (moderator) and became a newsletter editor. All the while, I wrote and shared my work, filling my port until full. Several other members and I began a children's eZine. I can't remember their user names, but the eZine became quite popular. However, some of us had life problems take over time and energy.

         My health and small publishing company became more time consuming, and I did less and less on W..Com. I continued to do my newsletter, though, thanks to the Storymaster and Storymistress allowing me to continue contribute what I can.

         Happy birthday, W.Com. You have become a home for many writers. May you have many more birthdays.

Thanks VIV, I'm printing this and keeping it close as I write a story about two detectives looking for a serial killer. Great stuff here. I'm checking out the website too. I'll send the link to chapter 1 or the "hook" as I haven't saved it to Wdc yet.
