Hello, LJPC,

I just happened to be trolling and found your piece, "Cover Letter Sumission." I worked for a newspaper for 10 years and had to read hundreds of those letters. Some were quite clear and to the point. Usually, I only had time to read the shorter letters.

Now, it's my turn to give it a try. It's been years since I've been seriously writing, but reading your instructions gave me the ammunition I need.

Your Friend,
Lesley

Dear Carole,

I just finished reading your unusual story about chinchillas. I have read many animal stories, but never one about these lovely and sweet animals. It is upsetting that people still like to wear chinchilla coats, but PETA and other humane societies are campaigning against wearing fur. I am glad this family was able to find good homes. I have heard they make sweet and easy to care for pets. Do you have any? I enjoyed reading your story. I hope you keep writing about animals. Very few of us at WDC write much about animals, as far as I can tell. All of my stories are true animal adventures. I'll enclose one for you to read. I think you will enjoy reading it.
Your Friend,
Lesley

Hi, TJ Marie,
I believe I have read your stories before and I also enjoyed reading, "Bella." I think your story is perfect for the Pet Newsletter. I love the tense of your narrative. Bella is an unusually intelligent dog. I love the way she explains people and events. I wish my Cairn Terrier was as smart as Bella!

Your Friend,
Lesley

Hello, Just Me, I love your handle. I enjoyed your entry, "A Puppy's Tale to Her Mom." I can tell from your writing that you know a lot about dogs, as well as other animals. The way you can get inside of a dog's head takes talent. I think you may be the next winner. Do keep on writing your animal stories. I am one of the very few I know of that only writes true animal adventures about alligators, buffalo and other critters. Plus, I used to raise, train and show donkeys and mules. Please, if you would like, write a story for me.

Your Friend,
Lesley

This is the very first story I wrote for WDC. I know you will enjoy reading about my close relationship with a buffalo named Billy.

Hideho, my Princess!

I enjoyed the sequel of Milandra and Raleigh and their shared life. I hope you will write about their cubs one day. Tigers are so magestic and they are also HUGE! I saw two "teenaged" tigers at the Alligator Adventure and couldn't get over how large they were and I was uncomfortable the way they looked at me. I saw a show about white tigers you may find interesting.

Apparently, the only way to get a white tiger cub is to inbreed other white tigers. Yet only a few are actually white. The inbreeding causes many different kinds of birth defects and these "excess" tigers are sold to buyers of all kinds and also at exotic animal auctions. That is one reason many tigers end up being killed at the "Canned Hunting" facilities. A white or regular tiger skin and theis heads add "class" to the wall of a den full of other animals that have been shot while confined in a small area. You know how I feel about canned hunting. It's a billion dollar "hobby."

Yours,
Lesley

Hideho, Princess!

Your white tiger story is a wonderful story. Leave it to you to think of a topic that is different. You captured the thinking of Milandra, the white tiger, in a realistic way. I could almost imagine the wheels in her brain turning. Like you, I firmly believe animals can understand we mere humans. I feel that animals have the ability to read our minds. Of course there are a lot of factors involved, most of them unconciously made, but easy for an animal to read. I can't wait to read part 2 of the White Tiger.
Love,
Lesley

Hideho!
What a great detective story chapter, "The Crime at the 13th Stone," pt. 1 got my attention right away. My favorite shows are all crime dramas. Yours reminds me of my favortie series, "Criminal Minds." I'll bet you even record it, don't you? As far as I can tell, your story is well written, well planned and I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to reading more. I am also an Ann Rule True Crimes Writer fan. Did you know she worked with Ted Bundy on a suicide hotline when they were in college. He wrote her often, I don't know if she did or not. If I see her name on a movie based on any of her books, I automatically record it and watch it at the same time. Her book on the "Green River Killer" is superb.

Your New Friend,
Lesley

Hideho, Jesse!

I loved reading your animal short story as told by Felix, the great cat. I thought the conversations were very good and the story kept my attention. You must have a lot of cats, too. So many dump them out and they become feral. At least the tomcat had a home with play toys. It was pleasing that the little orphan did get to play with something. So many unwanted cats suffer on the streets. I was an animal control officer and President of the BCSPCA for ten years. I've seen it all. Check out my story about the abandoned kitten, Tortie

. My port is 99.99% true animal adventures. I was once attacked by an elk in rut, raised a bison that let me ride him when he was older. It was like sitting on a brillo pad.

I will look forward to reading more of your stories, Jesse. I think you are a talented writer. Email me any time and feel free to check my crazy port. I have pictures of the Bison Story.

Hideho, Simon!

I enjoyed your animal short story not a contest entry. I love turtles and you have given me lots of new ideas. I thought the whole story is pretty much error free. I tend to only see the best. You are good, too. I love the adventures that Earl has been through! He must have the IQ of a Genius. It all started with Earl's bravery about the Forbidden Road and all of a sudden, the story changed and became an exciting, dangerous incident. I belong to the Americanturtlerescue. I don't remember the url at this time, but Susan Tellum in Los Angeles, CA operates a huge santuary for all sorts of tortoises and turtles. We used to mail box turtles and tortoises to each other. I miss my turtles. Your story really got me thinking.

Hello,

I just happened to notice your story on Max Griffin's Contest and thought it would be different. I am glad I took the time to read it, it's a good story. Don't want to swell your head. The last part was interesting, the way you were able to describe death, or your idea of death. I don't have one yet. I'm still A Sage of the Tao. "...Maury faded into dark or light, to meet whatever came after life." Wonderful way to end this story. I will be reading more of your work in the future.

Review of A Murder of Crows

Hideho. Evermore!

I thought your story about the crows' mass murders. I've always heard how intellegent crows can be. It was a puzzle to me what started the whole story about recerrected crows and magpied. It struck me is that the story seems very original and it painted a picture, though not particularly bright. I have already read "Whiskers" a while back and was also impressed with that. It must just bubble up from your unusual mind.

Your Friend,
Lesley

Thanks for sharing that touching story about the pros and cons of diversity. Granted more schools and colleges support this wonderful curriculum, but we need to train the ones doing the teaching. It is not fair for college degrees to have trouble with work they are not particularly prepared for. We need an even keel and everyone should come aboard.

Review of Cake to Die For  
Review by Lesley Scott

Rated: 13+ | (4.0)
Hello, Nixie,

I have read some of your stories and they were very enjoyable. You have a knack for surpise endings and curious settings. "Cake To Die For," was a particularly interesting story, full of surprises. I don't do as many reviews as I should. The weather is always mild here and I can't seem to stay indoors very long. OH, I forgot to take the clothes off the line! Gotta Go.
ps
I can't get into the Gift app. The StoryMistress blocked me from anything to do with WDC, like certain contests and anything else. I've been going through this for three years and I'm still blocked. I've done everything I can think of: won contests, sponsored programs, lots of reviews and made lots of friends. But I guess giving me back my Preferred Author statis is all forgotten. I have more than qualified for reinstatement.

Tell me what I need to do, and explain how to award the reviews.

Your Friend,
Lesley

Hi, Evermore!

I just read your contest entry for "I'll give you a sentence." I am pretty sure you are the winner. I thought my story about one of my cranky allilgators was good, but your story had a plot, excitement, mistery, violence and humor. I am looking forward to reading more of your work. I am just waiting on a rainy day so I can spend some time indoors. We never have winter down here.

Lesley

Hello, Rich,

I was just surfing, looking for animal stories because I have well over 100 animal stories in port. The story I just read about the parrot was a hoot! I have an Afrian Grey Parrot who hates my guts. I've had him for years and just as I figure out a way to avoid being savaged, he solves his "problem." One day my mother was sitting with me in the kitchen drinking coffee and Timmy said in a clear voice, "What the F___K?" Momma just gave me a smile. He has never said it again and I don't remember saying it around him. Here is an offensive Parrot Joke. A man of minority heritege said to a pet shop parrot, "Polly want a cracker?"

The parrot looked him in the eyes and said, "N____R want a watermellon?"

Hello, HuntersMoon,

I ejoyed your entry for the Pet Newsletter. You really did a great job of telling us about how a dog feels about his owner and how the owner feels about his pet. I also found a lot of the lines very amuzing. I especially liked, "We are not that different from you except we choose to never lie." That is so true!

Yours,
Lesley

Hideho, SandraLynn!

I just read your story, "Dance of the Shunk." You love animals as much as I do! You must have experience with them, as you seem to understand how they think. I have kept many animals and never owned a skunk. They are not native here. I know a lot about possums and coons, buffalo, foxes, snakes and other critters. I was bitten by a skunk that was donated to the Animal Forest. It was so darn painful!

Your Friend,
Leslely

Hello, SandraLynn,

I enjoyed reading your interview with the cat for a purrfect home. You portrayed your kitty in a realistic light, and your questions were really good. I have written stories about stray and neglected animals that end up finding a home or not making it at the pound. I was an animal control officer and worked at an animal adoption center in my spare time and I could put words into their mouths like you did. You really have a unique insight and you are a fierce animal nut like me!

Yours,

Lesley Scott

Hello, Chasing Worms,

Your handle is perfect for your short story, "Creating Jewels." I identified with Larissa imediately, as if you wrote about me. I also hated working in the yard, and was almost forced to weed and mow the lawn and plant seeds and bulbs. Now, I have nine raised beds in my backyard with lots of vegetables and flowers. That reminds me... I am going to help my mother in her yard in the morning!

Yours,
Lesley

HIdeho, Pam!

I am very impressed with your stories for children. One of my goals is to be versatile enough to write for children and enter the "Words with Wings." You ought to enter that. LostGhost is heading it up it's a great contest. I would also love to write true crime stories like Ann Rule. She worked with Ted Bundy in College on a suicide hotline. He even wrote her regularly until he was executed!

Really, though, if you haven't entered Words with Wings, do it right away. We don't have a lot of writers that have that drive to write for kids. Do a search for "Words with Wings." That should get you there.

I'll turn you on to an exciting story.

HIdeho, Meg!

I just happened to stumble across the "Blog City" and was curious enough to check it out. I am not as involved in as many groups' activily as before, so I may have some time to join. I will think about it and read more about it. You know how horribly reclusive I get during a bout of depression. Then I get manic and feel like I could change the world. I've been up a lot more than down lately.

I see a bunch of titles of blogs of yours that should be great. I haven't read any yet, I barely had time to turn on the computer. Now, the cats and dogs are pestering me for their supper and bedtime. Two of them sleep in my bed and Cherie, my Maine Coon Cat (boy she is a big kitty) sleeps in her own bed. I used to let Gypsy sleep at the foot of the bed and had to discontinure that because she was chewing on my hair! She's squealing to come out for a while she has an outside cage, regular indoor cage, and several other spots in the house.

I will close for now. Let me know how to make a donation if the group requires.
Love,
Lesley

Review of Blog City Hall  
Review by Lesley Scott

Rated: E | (4.5)
Hideho, ya'll!

I think the Blog City concept is a great idea. I would like to join, but I probably need to read up and get some more information. I don't want to feel pressured like I do when I enter contests or answer the blogs of others. I also have a problem with clinical depression from Bipolar and may not use the computer for days or even a week. So I need to be able to take a break and not get too bogged down when I return. I'm still not sure how a blog works. Which is the most recent? Isn't it the top comment?

Your Friend and Neighbor,
Lesley Ann

I would also like to make a donation.

Review of Freefall

Rated: 13+ | (4.0)
Hideho!

I just read your short story, "Freefall." I thought it was pretty cool. I especially like your style of characters and dialogue. The story wasn't what I expected. But that is what makes reading your stories so much fun. You are full of suprises!

I have Trigeminal Neuralgia, which is also called "The Suicide Disorder." The pain is on the left side of my face and the trigeminal nerve runs from ear to eye to jaw. Sometimes, it will be so bad, I'll think I have an ear infection. Hot compresses only help a little. I don't like pain killers much either, but I also have migraines. I take Ultram or Tramadol four times a day and I finally have peace! Once in a while, I'll skip a dose or two if I don't feel the pain coming. But if I run out, it's Hell to pay and I understand suicide. After all, I am Bipolar! I do all nighters and then have periods of feeling worthless and wonder what I am doing here.

My face is starting to hurt and it's time for my Bipolar night time meds I take at bedtime. I take Ambien, Tramadol, Trazadone and zyprexa and sometimes valium. I carry on fine with that many drugs on board. I've been taking them for so many years, I have a tolerance. It's when I'm not taking my meds that people think something is wrong with me.

Love,
Lesley

I was peeking in your great port. You have just about everything in there. It must be nice to be so versatile. I'm still stuck on non fiction and essays. I was a newspaper writer for a long time and also wrote newsletters, agendas and other type stuff.
I loved your Thanksgiving Story! I wrote one called "The Real Thanksgiving," or something like that. I'll try to find it for you to see. I wrote it three years ago. I'd like to think I'm more creative now.
