I have updated my biography as of September 16, 2020.
I'm planning to update my portfolio again next month.
This is a poem that I wrote for a friend today that I would like to share with everyone at Writing.Com.

These birds are here to cheer you,
Singing their song so dear;
It's really quite charming,
Not to ever be alarming.
They've made it perfectly clear,
That there's no need to even fear.

Today's the day to start anew,
Troubles, then, become so few.
Put your worries from the past,
Into God's hands so they won't last.
If you think of me today,
Things will be better, this you'll see.

I'm thinking about updating my profile again sometime this month.
I just realised I was commenting to a message here dated 2019. Haha

I would like to know if there is a limited amount of interviews that you can do per day. I don't want to overdue it. Please let me know the answer to this statement, and let me know, if there is one, what that limit would be.
No limit for the number of reviews you can do per day, other than don't send junk or the same content as a review (both are review cheating).

There is a limit for this particular review incentive: Daily Review Rewards from Writing.Com 101 .
Thank You for catching my mistake; I did mean reviews. I was pretty tired when I wrote that.
Take a look at some of the other reviewers reviews. Some are more specific while others arent. You're not expected to fix every story problem you review. Maybe it's about spelling or spacing or something out of sequence.

Or you might commend them on what you did like and what worked well. Leave them with a positive thought.

I hope this helps.
Sad to say, but my membership expires tomorrow. I have enjoyed being on this website; it would not have been possible, but, thanks to an anonymous donation, I was fortunate to contribute my work for six months. I realize that I will be able to still use your site, but my contributions will have to be downsized. Let me know what my limits will be.

I want to thank all of you for the encouragement that you have given and the positive reviews that I have been given after they have read my writings.

I wish that everyone will have a Happy New Year in 2020. I want to encourage you to keep on writing; it's good therapy and a whole lot of fun. Stay safe during the holiday and always. Don't drink and drive or do any texting while driving; this includes no talking on your cell phones when driving.

Take care and God Bless.

There are plenty of ways to earn GPs on the site if you are interested. A lot of people here earn Premium memberships without spending a dime. You just have to be motivated. Let me know if you want a few suggestions. *Smile*
Reading and reviewing will not only help others but also your own writing. Plus you gain gift points when you give a review. And if you do a certain amount (I believe it's ten in one month.) you can request help with getting a membership renewal.

There's usually contests and such to participate in to also get gift points or give also.

Try some out. And welcome.
I received a phone call the other day from a friend of mine who lives in California. She informed me that she's got Co-Vid. I am praying for a hedge of protection around her. I am praying 🙏 also for a miracle to take place in this young adult's life.
My prayers for her *Heart*
I would like to know if there is a word count that I can use for keeping track of contests that I wish to enter in. I'm thinking of trying the flash fiction contest. This would be helpful and I think that the Newbies would find a word count helpful as well.

Questions about how to use the site belong in "Technical Support Forum.

There's a built-in word count tool in item tools and entry tools. Click the respective gear icon to open the menu.
I'm happy that my entry in the "No Dialogue Contest" got entered on my fourth try. I was close in finishing up when all of my writings got erased, so I had to retype it.
I stay pretty much inside; when I do go out, I go by the water staying in the car most of the time. When I do go out, I usually wear a mask and practice social distancing.
I am considering entering the "No Dialogue Contest" until I saw that it wanted to have registered members. I am an upgraded member; can someone tell me is that would qualify me to enter?

Hi Anna and yes, you are qualified to enter! Since you have an account on the site, that makes you a registered member.
I just submitted a poem entitled, "Kick Start Your Reviver". The title came to me out of the blue, and it sounded cute to me. I would like to know if you could tell me how to create a cover letter. This would be very helpful.
