Dear Acme,

I just finished reading your story and your daydream to terminate what you have been dreaming about. I feel that I am quite lucky to have given neglected horses, ponies, donkeys and mules new homes where they would be appreciated and given the love that all animals need. If the story brings out memories for you, please send me a note. My stories are on Writing.com//author/ for "A Most Ordinary Boy" that shows how dedicated I am to the plea coming from many organizations. Please try to send your representatives the message that no hard working animal deserves to be mistreated.

Yours,
Lesley Scott

Hey, Jakrebs!

I just finished reading your winning story for the "Have I Got A Story For You." I really did like the way it was written. The tense was refreshing to me, since I usually write in the past tense. It was a great read and I loved the way you ended the story. Well Done!

Your Friend,
Lesley

Review of Tears For Two

Hey!

Ah Ha! I just read your cool short story, "Tears for two." I was hooked at the first pararaph. It was a an easy read, but presented your information in a personal way. At first, I thought you were talking about an old couple that you had known that had suddenly died. The ending is priceless. You have such an imagination! I wish you could share it with me. I have been trying to write a fiction story just for a change.

I need to go to Walmart right now, But I'll be back!

Review of Hesitation  
Review by Lesley Scott
In affiliation with WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  
Rated: E | (3.5)
Hello, again,

I just finished reading, "Hesitation," and it is a very emotional piece of poetry. The description of falling on the ground made my poor old battered knees hurt. That is certainly someone the poet loved dearly and they are going to separate. I hope it doesn't get more violent in a sequel!

I can tell from reading your story and poem that you are very intense when you feel something is important. It takes that sort of courage and extroverted personality that will keep you writing more and more. I even pull all nighters when I am really into one of my campaignes or issues with wildlife. I will find out how to turn you on to the site you can access so you can see what is going on. There's a LOT!

Goodnight,
Lesley

Review of Why I Write  
Review by Lesley Scott

Rated: E | N/A (Review only item.)
Hey! Gemmie!

I remember you now. I once reviewed your Story about Underdog. That was was so cool. I like to smile and laugh even though I am serious about my enviornmental, or animal cruely essays. I think I may have read three of your stories. I am bad about remembering what I've read or written without the text in front of my eyes. In my story I wrote when I joined WDC, It's about all of the discouragement I had to deal with. It's not so easy, even if you do love to write.I remember stuffing a pillow under the crack in my door so my mother wouldn't see my light was still on. I used that time to read and write. I even pulled a number of all-nighters. I'd like to think, as do you, that the best writer is the best reader. I read too many serious books on history, studies on Violence, The Tao Te Ching and other such books. I just bought the new Stephen King book, so "The Anatomy of Violence" goes on the back burner.

Try out, "What is the USDA doing to our earth?" I also wrote a short essay about: "The Non-believers." I had only one person send me a review. It was a decent review, and the man is a serious religious person. I knew he's take the bite. It's not Us against Them, but I got in a few licks.

I look forward to reading more of your stories. Boy! You must really read a lot!


Your Friend,
L.

Review of donkey

I especially enjoyed seeing your cool donkey image. I raised, trained, showed, sold and bought donkeys, mules, and horses. My donkeys were all ADMS Registered and I was making enough money to keep up the farm. Your donkey reminds me of Yo-Yo. He had something wrong with his neck and couldn't hold his head high. He is now 35 years old and lives with his daughter, Lolita.

Send me some of your animal clipart. I can't get my jpgs down to the proper style, no matter what I do!

Your Friend,
Lesley

Dear Horsewoman,

Do you own any horses? I could be called the Mulewoman, among other animal species. I enjoyed reading your interesting story written in a letter form. I liked it so much, I am going to try it, myself. The letter dealt with different subjects, which I liked. I used to write dozens of letters to my animal-oriented friends, all over the globe. They wrote me back every time with news of their own. My writing was all about my animal-related adventures with animal control, the Animal Forest and my barnyard news.

I am going to try to write a story letter as good as yours, but it is a tall order.

Yours,
Lesley

Review of No Time To Scream

Wow! I loved that one! I read a lot of books about murderers and serial killers. I want to write true crime stories like Ann Rule. She worked with Ted Bundy on a suicide hotline and said he was very nice and fun to be around. I guess she wasn't his type. He wrote her a letter every single day until he went to the electric chair. Maybe that is why she wrote such an excellent book about him.

I stil haven't found the story with Angus. I'll try later.

Hello, Vagabond,

Thank you for sharing your story, "My Dead Room," A satiricl monologue about claustrophobia, seclusion. I can just picture you, on your bed staring at the ceiling waiting for your depression to end. I always tell myself, "It will be better tomorrow." I also have trouble sleeping. Even with Ambien, I have to listen to "talk TV," to doze off. Your words brought back a lot of memories.

Hi,
It's five in the morning and I just finished reading your really cool story, "Binky's Bedtime Story..." The idea was a great one, telling a child a good bedtime fantasy story. I loved the ending when Binky's mother patiently told her the story was over for now. Good night.

Hello,

It's three am and I just happened across your story before I shut down. Your story grabbed my interest and I had to read it until the very surprising end. At first, I just thought Samuel was going to live in the basement like my husband did in Canada. He lived in a crawl space surrounded by books.

Then, I figured Samuel was buried beyond saving. It really blew my mind when he came out to speak to the Congress about the existence of God.
It was an unusual story with a spiritual ending. I am glad to have read it.

Hi, Dave,

I have enjoyed reading your work in the past and I still do. Your winning entry for "Words With Wings," called, "A Bicycle Renaissance," brought back my childhood memories of owning my first bike and personalizing it with tassles and wicker basket. I learned to ride on someone else's bike.

I have a bike now with those gears and handle bars so low, I can't ride it. The grips hurt my hands because my arms are so short and I would much rather ride my first bike! I have been looking for one, but can't find anything yet. I always fall off of the bike I have now. I am actually afraid to ride it now. I do better riding horses and mules, anyway.

Again, I loved your whimsical poem!

Yours,
Lesley

Review of Love's Adventure  
Review by Lesley Scott
In affiliation with WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Hello, again,

I just finished reading your story, "Love's Adventure." It made me stop and think of all of my blessings and how God has kept me safe and loved. I am Bipolar and prone to clinical depression. A very high percentage of BP sufferers committ suicide. At one time, I had written a note in my head. Then I told myself that God will see me through this rough patch and things always change, mostly for the better.

That was almost a year ago. Now, I feel better on new meds and I read a lot of books about how the human brain functions, Carl Sagan's books, the Tao Te Ching, written 3,000 years ago, and do not read my personal Bible daily, but refer to it when get that certain feeling that I need guidance. Reading the Bible not only answers questions, but poses them, as well.

Your story sort of paralleled my life when you wrote about your depression. If someone else, like a Pastor can be depressed, then I don't feel so ashamed. Thank you for your help!

Love,
Lesley

Hello,
I just finidshed your short story entry, "Sing Me A Story." I found it to be an interesting story, for lack of better words. I was so cool, the way the author had such a relationship with Mary Ann in the mirror. I was beginning to think that she was in need of seeing a shrink. The ending was erie and spooking. Good Job, and good luck with the contest.

Lesley

Review of Slaughterhouse  
Review by Lesley Scott
In affiliation with WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  
Rated: 18+ | (3.5)
Hello,
I always enjoy your writing. It's been a while, though. I thought your Halloween story, "Slaugherhouse" very original and easy to read. I guess you know your way around a slaughterhouse, all right. The ending was really cool when Harley was bleeding to death, he was thinking of a song by the "Rolling Stones."

Yours,
Lesley

ps I have seen documentaries on how most staughterhouses operate and I am a vegetarian. But I understand that the kind of person who sees the carnage so much is bound to either snap or become a hardened abuser of the animals that are waiting to die. But we are working towards more humane methods of slaughterhouse operations, though the USDA doesn't do anything positive or anything at all, in my opinion.

Hello, Mavis,

I just finished reading your short story, "Compassion." I agree that we need to put blinders on when it comes to those things that trip us up or incapaciate us. I know also what it feels like to realize something that I want so badly be to good at, I actually suck. Just like the author, I can't sing, either. I loved the ending when the author became a doctor and had to take care of Mr. Spark.

Hello, again,

I love reading your poetry, but I am always afraid to review them. I am not a poet and don't feel qualified. I just finished reading your poem, "Pulling Puzzles Apart." To me, it seemed like you have written about life and love. You feel the frustration yet for the love of your dear wife, you hold yourself together with advice to the reader, "As always, it'd just the start..."

Yours,
Lesley

Hello, Friend,

You are right, your friend made you a cool sig like none we have here. Or at least, I've never seen a cute ghost before. The eyes together like that are adorable and gives you a surprised expression. The shape, size and color contrasts are excellent. It says to me, "Lost Ghost."

Hello, George,

I just finished reading your delightful story about "The Memory Lane Malt Shop." I found it easy to read and anxious for more. At first, I was wondering how Sid could function so well and even be clever if he had Alzhiemers. As I read on, I understood he was still in the hospital. However, the ending couldn't have been better.

Your Friend,
Lesley

I am going to order your ebook, "The Falcon and the Desert Rose." I really do enjoy your writing and would love to read your book.

I may never write a book, myself. All I write are my true animal adventures, which is quite a collection. I've ridden a buffalo, wrestled alligators and handled poisonous snakes, plus raised, trained, shown and promoted donkeys and mules.

Hello, Friend,

I've been one of your followers for quite some time. But this time, I will try to let you know how much I enjoyed your Acrostic poem, "Thoughtfull Woman." The poem, indeed, is food for thought. I love your style and word choices, and wish I could write that way. Maybe in the future. I wondered if the third stanza was supposed to be," Men that await her..." But that is probably part of the way you set it up.

As always,
Your Friend,
Lesley

Hello, Dave,

I just finished your poem, entered in the "Holiday Contest," and I am sure I'm reading a winner. Your poem is so funny original and easy for anyone to read. I usually have to read a poem more than once. I have tried to write poems, but no luck. I'm stuck with non-fiction, essays and newsletters. I loved the ending, "Tonight, real food, a hot shower, and a good night's sleep in a bed with clean sheets." Must be nice. I wish I could do that!

Lesley

Review of Transformation

Hello, Ben the Kid,

I just read your poem, "The Transformation." Yours is one of the few poems that I can read and nod my head and understand without reading it several times. "The Transformation' flowed and expressed an important message. I agree that sometimes a certain experience will influence how we see the world and ourselves. It is near impossible for someone in depression to see the beauty in life. The poem, to me, seems to be a lesson for those of us that get lost along the way. "Faith will guide you to a space, a peaceful uplifting place that will see you through it all to the goal.

Review of Inside or Outside

Hello, Max,

I did what I could to re write my Elk story. I reads much better, but could be better. I have a lot to learn. Your writing is so full of nice little details and phrases. I liked this essay, "Inside and Outside." I will especially do my best to lead the reader into the dream. I never thought of it that way.

Thanks for all of your help and attention. I will read more of your work as time allows. I have some other stories I dug out of my old word processor to edit. I don't even remember writing them. I write because it helps me concentrate. ADHD makes my mind jump from one racing thought to another. The Bipolar Disorder is a bother, too.

Your Friend and Fan,
Lesley

Hey!

I finally read one of your gay man stories, "A Man Who's Fundamentally a Woman." As usual, your stories are not just intertaining, but full of blunt facts. I hope everyone can read and understand what it is like not to be the same as everyone else, or what someone wants you to be.

If you'd like, I could fish out my story, "The Right Gender," in my port for you to read. This story made me think of my gay and lesbian friends I shopped with, went to movies, out to eat, ect. It also made me think of my dear Christine. It's been a while since I've talked to her, but she was fine last time. We also have ADHD and Bipolar, so we cheer each other up, bitching about how our bodies are aging.

Love,
Leslely

Hello, Friend,
I just finished reading "The Brainstormers Q and A." I had no idea there were so many other things I could do besides just write, enter a few contests and raffles. I sent my first CNote today and I felt ignorant, but not anymore. Thanks, also, for all of the other useful information, such as, recruiting new members. I've recruited two, but I don't think they mentioned my name.
Thanks for the help.
