"You've written an interesting poem but it still requires a lot more editing. IMO. There are too many words used in the whole poem. You have five verses which might have been made shorter in the editing process. And then might come your…"

"There is power in poetry like this. The question, the answer: which one do we  fear to hear. And how might we feel knowing a little of the story at a time. It is that unwinding and knowing that compels us to read on. Well done. If ever you can…"

Hello Cleveland. Welcome to this corner of my world.

Hello, Cleveland.  We share a last name.  My maiden name is Gibson, the G in G.G.

As a genealogist, I'd love to know where you are from!

Ah, sorry.  Just saw you are from one of my favorite places--Oxfordshire in the UK.My Gibsons immigrated to the US from England some time around the war for independence, I believe.  It is my most allusive (is that the right word?) line.  I love Thrillers, if they aren't too hard-edged.  Leslie Charteris is about my speed, too. I've written and published one that takes place in Oxford and Wales, but have always been dissatisfied with it.  It's the only one of my books to get stinky reviews, so no doubt I deserved them.

Hi Cleveland,

I was struggling to add depth to one of my characters in particular and people on the site have been extremely helpful with suggestions and ideas. Hopefully this will go a long way to help me improve as a writer.

Regards

Dave

Thanks for taking your time to have a look at my writing and getting back to me. I really do appreciate your interest in becoming my friend and I am really looking forwards to it.  I need people like you. My writing is a very long story indeed. First I was forced into it because of my powerful imagination and creativity. Secondary I suffered severe brain problem which almost destroyed my life for good, explained problem writing my stories. I have got a lot of stuffs with me and I need help from the experts regarding my writing. Cross fire was supposed to be a movie about love story, mixed with crime involving deadly encounters with the police, the main characters being Bridget and her girl friend Maggie who is extremely deadly, heartless, a serial killer (well trained in combat and an expert in the martial arts). Bridget is from a rich family and dearly loved by the mother. But when she met Maggie, her whole life transformed Maggie turned her life upside down.
