Spending time on this site gives one...perspective.
In 2010--a time that doesn't seem like so very long ago--I stumbled upon this website by happy accident, and realized I loved what I was reading. One of the first fictions I recall reading was My Choices, My Mistakes by CannedCream. I remember it because it was--for a long time--the only thing on this site that brought tears to my eyes the first time I read it. It was short, but lacked nothing. It was what finally led me to writing.
I've written for a while, and though much of what I originally wrote exists only on lost thumb drives and in notebooks stashed among a lifetime of paperwork, I look back on it and I'm continually amazed by the differences I see. It's something I'm perpetually thankful for, and one of the reasons I always seem to come back, no matter how long I go without publishing anything.
I periodically remove some of my older works from the site. These are mostly pieces that I determined to be of unsatisfactory quality that additionally had negligible followings, but are on occasion also pieces that I had hoped to develop but ultimately decided would not, for whatever reason. I've retained some of these works offline, but others have been lost.
I appreciate reviews on my works--constructive criticism especially--and will respond to all of it (as best that I am able). So, if you see something in one of my stories that doesn't make sense or you think I executed poorly, simply tell me so via review or private message. It could bring an issue or significant error to my attention or, at very least, I may be able to clear up a misunderstanding.

If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” -Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms
