Hi, ya all. I like to think of myself as a wordsmith. Whether that is true or not is one reason I am on this site. I would like to see how my work is received by my peers. I have won 2 writing contests in the past 3 years, which has inspired me to take the next step; to run it up the flag pole and see if anybody salutes. So, if you find any redeeming qualities in my work, or even if you don't, a critical revue either good or bad would be appreciated. Thank you for stopping.
