Seriously? Give me a break! Think of how many excellent books wouldn't have been written if everyone had to show everything they've ever written to their kids. I can't even . . .  Who does this?



If you are letting your young children into a writer's forum, you might want to have your head examined. I have never, in the 12 years of being a member here, ever seen a young child on these boards. What young children want to hang out with adults in a writer's forum? None. Kids have better things to do.
Trust me Jan, no kids want to hang out in an adult writer's forum. If you are forcing your kids or grandkids, or any kids to hang out on the internet and read everything you write, I feel sorry for those kids. Take them to the park. There may be a slight chance of a very mature, curious eleven-year-old, wandering on to the site, maybe, but they aren't being very well supervised then, are they? Even so, they won't know what it all means until 3rd to 6th grade.

You should see the stuff they read in school these days. Now there's a job for you. Go the the elementary school library and volunteer to screen the words written by the writers in the books they have on the shelves for children to read.


There is no nice way to say this but it needs to be said because the mods aren't reeling you in . . .  For the love of God, Jan, please get off your sanctimonious high-horse. We are all fed up. No one is forcing you to read these things you go on about finding so offensive. It's a friggin' writer's forum, at least it used to be before everyone got sick of being berated or censured. If you don't like it, you can leave. Stop patrolling the boards and scolding or arguing with people. You're pushing people away. We get it. You're a perfect, do-no-wrong, innocent, church-lady who's writing is glorious. Maybe you should consider finding a nice religious writer's forum where you'll be happy.


I'm sorry. It's been one of those days and that's just the way I feel. This is the Crap Joke Thread. Literal sh*t. It was doing fine before you got here. You are the first and only person to complain about this in how many pages and posts? Do you realize how many years of laughter and camaraderie have been provided in these pages?

THE MOMENT
 
You urge me “seize the moment”
     As I angst about the past.

So, I leap into the future,
     But you murmur “not so fast”;

Then, I back-up to the present,
     Tucked neatly past the past,

Wedged tight before the future,
     And pray the moment lasts.


I love the poem.  But I saw a few things I would change  if I was writing it. Hope you don't mind.   jt

THE MOMENT
 
You urge me “seize the moment”
As I angst about the past.

But you murmur “not so fast.”

Then, I backup to the present
Tucked neatly past the past,

Wedged tight before the future,
And pray the moment lasts.

Hello,

My name is Roger. I've dabbled at writing in fits and starts for years and have dozens of unfinished stories and articles. At the start of 2019, I narrowed my personal hobbies to golf and writing, giving each equal time. My career earnings as a writer might buy one week's groceries for two. Decades ago, I took a pair of fiction writing classes as electives and submitted work for professional critiques in college and at a writer's conference. I consider myself a beginner determined to improve as a fiction writer. Critiques can be gut wrenching, but unless you're a natural born wordsmith none of us will improve without a critical comment or two. For what my limited skill is worth, I plan to write at least 3-4 critiques each month.

All submission guidelines can also be found on our site: https://www.thirdeyestorytelling.com/open-submissions

As you will find, yes, payment isn’t much at this time. Due to this being our first Anthology Magazine/Comic Book to be released EVER, $20 per accepted story is all we can afford. In the future, once the ball is rolling and things are better for the company, we do plan on paying higher rates for stories. I do believe that writers, artists, and storytellers of all kinds should be paid the fair price. However, like I stated before, what we are currently offering is what fits our budget in this moment. The submission guidelines are as follows down below:

Hello all!
We here at Third Eye Storytelling are preparing to release our first Anthology Book titles The Devastation: Stories Depicting how the world fell into the Apocalypse! We are looking for original short stories between 1,200 and 5,000 words within the apocalyptic genre.
We are looking for three stories that will fit along side our comic stories also within the book. Submissions are currently open, and will close August 17. We will do our best to go through submissions as quickly as we can. In your submission be sure to include your name, email address, cover letter, story title, word count, genre and story. Your cover letter should contain your publishing history (if any) and any other relevant information.
All stories should be in standard manuscript format and can be submitted in either .RTF, .DOC, or .DOCX format. We will claim first world electronic rights and first print rights. We will pay a flat rate of $20 per story accepted. Payment will be made via PayPal.
If you are interested in submitting your story to Third Eye Storytelling for the anthology book, The Devastation, please email contact@thirdeyestorytelling.com - release of the book is planned for the last Wednesday of September.
I look forward to hearing from some great storytellers soon!
Thank you.
