Katrinas Wake (Book) - 12/30/2007 4:42:25 PM|
This is one I would like to read, Cheryl. Hurricane Katrina affected many, and not just along the Gulf Coast. Any who has ever called that part of the nation home; anyone who watched the 24/7 nightmare unfolding the storm into their living rooms...this is a must have. As soon as I scrape up some money, I will be ordering.
*StormSpinner* (who's written a few Katrina poems herself)
And if you look at my bio page, the pic of me was taken on 8/29 - yes, that's Katrina behind me. She was that big, to be seen in North Central Texas.

My Grand Dog (Short Story) - 8/3/2008 8:20:53 AM
This is a marvelous story, Cheryl B. Sellers. Our country would not have so many children with ADD, DD, OCD, and a plethora of alphabet personality disorders, including the final one, DOA … if some parents would treat them with the same care, concern, and love … you give your grandchildren and the ever grand DOG.
Warm regards …

You have a teriffic sense of humor.
Adventures of Cat (Short Story) - 2/12/2007 5:55:39 PM
I have three cats, or should I say three cats have me, and I can really see your love for your feline companion in your short story. What an enjoyable tale!
Aura (Short Story) - 2/19/2005 8:40:52 PM
I can imagine that the rotten banana smell has something to do with a medical condition that caused her to lose control, but I'm not sure, from this little bit, how this turns into a thriller. I think you need a little more hook to set up how this becomes suspenseful. The accident itself was very well done, but accidents nearly always end where they began until we're given just a little more. I'm not sure the banana smell is enough, intriguing as it is, because the one who smelled it dies right away. Just a thought. Keep it going!
Goose poop or ewwwwww (Short Story) - 2/10/2004 11:01:27 PM
My 7 year old grandson would love this story; planning to read it to him after school tommorrow. He loves walks by the pond near our home, but hates the "goose poop." In fact when he was younger, it was one of the most "natural resources he recognized. And he would always say when he say it, "Eewwww, Grannie! Goose Poop!".
I wish you, Cat and Squirrel many many many happy lives.

Aura (Short Story) - 12/21/2003 8:39:31 AM
This is a very intense write, straight from the first line. It has a lot of potential, IMHO. I wish you the best.
Goose poop or ewwwwww (Short Story) - 12/12/2003 3:44:59 PM
You had me laughing through this whole story, Cheryl! That is one brave squirrel, one frustrated kitty cat, and one scared to death owner of some harmless old goose poop!! Well done; great story.
Goose poop or ewwwwww (Short Story) - 12/10/2003 5:36:00 PM
too cute, cheryl; thanks for sharing! :D (((HUGS))) and much love, your tx. friend, karen lynn.
Aura (Short Story) - 11/17/2003 2:24:29 PM
Your story has a lot of potential. I can actually see where this could go, in several directions. I hope you pick the right track. I'm not sure if i could,at the moment. Anyway, i wish you all the best with it.
Aura (Short Story) - 11/17/2003 1:49:46 PM
I think that you put this in a little bit too early Cheryl. With a bit of working, and making sure that you have not written yourself into a hole, this could be very interesting indeed. I won't pick on the grammar, but I find with my work, that if I do put the grammar right, by multiple edits, even on a page or two, the story makes more sense to me and it becomes 'visual' in a way that it almost writes itself! This may not work with you, but perhaps if you'll try it, you may be pleasantly surprised!
Cheryl, by the way, thanks for your review on my poem! About my hubby's near demise! I managed to get a cuppa, after eight hours of being in the hospital, by telling the nurse, to make him two cups of tea! Saying that he was very thirsty!! (I drank it secretly!)
Aura (Short Story) - 10/20/2003 8:04:16 PM
Not a bad idea or beginning for this rough draft. Keep it intense, yet be sure to flesh it fully out and if the rest of the story is this good, you may have yourself a winner!
Aura (Short Story) - 10/18/2003 1:01:27 PM
You drew me in with the first lines and have my curiosity at a peak. I see that it still needs refinement (which always comes after you've read it yourself a few times) but I think you've got a good mystery in the make here. Huzzah!!
My Grand Dog (Short Story) - 10/17/2003 2:05:36 AM
Diesel sounds like a lovely dog and it is a great story, reminds me of a bulldog pup my uncle had when I was a little girl. Funny how they like to eat or drink what we eat, one of my cats had a kitten that liked to drink hot chocolate from a cup! The mental picture of a full grown Pitbull swinging on your hair, I don't know whether to laugh or cringe with pain, oooh! Jackie <> <
Aura (Short Story) - 10/17/2003 1:55:58 AM
I am fascinated, I want to know the rest of this mystery, what is it that smells like rotten bananas, that would cause her to panic and lose control, hurry up with chapter two please. Jackie <> <
My Grand Dog (Short Story) - 10/5/2003 7:07:27 AM
Very interesting and entertaining piece. Pets always think they're humans, and they act like kids too. What a wonderful "kid" you have!
My cat had started to drink from a cup. He drinks tea, and eats french fries and roast chicken. He squeezes his head into a cup and drinks from it.

My Grand Dog (Short Story) - 10/4/2003 11:03:55 AM
Beautiful story about a grand family and a grand pit bull which proves that no particular breed of canine is vicious, as some seem to think. If a dog is shown hatred, it returns it in kind; if a dog is shown love, it returns it in kind - ten fold. Great write! Great dog!
My Grand Dog (Short Story) - 10/4/2003 10:08:05 AM
Wonderful tale! I'd like to come over and meet Diesel and bring my dog Nipper, but Nipper is jealous of other dogs. He'd love you though, I've never had a dog that loved humans quite like Nipper does. I really loved your little story.
My Grand Dog (Short Story) - 10/4/2003 9:52:15 AM
Diesel sounds like a doggie I would love to know, especially when he does his "happy dance"! A charming story of a special dog! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :D

Animals are great teachers. Wonderful write!
Adventures of Cat (Short Story) - 9/24/2003 7:07:51 AM
Ahh! I live this beautiful scene each morning with my numerous "lions" who for all the world believe that they can protect me and their lair from evil intruders. Well done!
Adventures of Cat (Short Story) - 9/15/2003 5:52:36 PM
Ah yes, Cats, delightful creatures they are! Loved the story, but cat antics are a story waiting to happen and one could write a dozen books regarding felines hehe.
I had two, now down to one, boo hoo.
A for the Cat's name being Cat, well it's logical. After all Wallace Footrot of footrot flats, the NZ Icon of all scruffy cocky hero'es called the Dog, Dog!
Hope you have great success with your writing Cheryl
PS If you havent read my exerpt from my story about Didge, " the day Didge came to the billabong" could you please have a sneaky at it, would like your thoughts TY xxCh'erie
Adventures of Cat (Short Story) - 9/13/2003 3:27:52 PM
I loved it! And what's wrong with naming a cat, Cat? I once had a canary named Canary!!
Adventures of Cat (Short Story) - 9/12/2003 8:04:03 PM
I am still laughing. i have a lizard Lion. She is stalking a Blue Tongue at the moment. Hope she never catches it, it is two foot long.

This is indeed a very beautiful love note one will never forget. It tells you just how wonderful you are, it must come well deserved!

I Am Thankful (Article) - 11/23/2005 2:36:04 PM
I read this on the air. I am a radio talk show host and it fit in perfectly for a Thanksgiving moring show......And of course I gave proper credits...and this web site.
The Title Writer (Article) - 12/19/2004 4:46:12 AM
I have never considered myself a writer, just a person who writes and has a desire to share my words with others. To be called, A Writer, well then it kind of becomes a job title and with a job comes deadlines, bosses, people telling you how and what to write b/c that's what sells. It then becomes a business. Though, I long to see my work recognized (in the form of a bestseller making tons of money) I also sometimes think staying under the radar allows for more creativity and free thinking writing instead of following a formula that sells. But, I guess there are sacrifices to make if we want to be financially independent, eh?
Keep writing, Cheryl. It's all about doing what you love, anyway.
The Title Writer (Article) - 12/18/2004 4:46:32 AM
It's been said that if you wake up and all you can think about is writing, then you are a writer. To be a great writer, however, that takes a lot more.
The Title Writer (Article) - 12/17/2004 7:26:56 PM
My view, you can claim yourself a writer! You have done the best that you can to nurture your words (children)and the job of a parent (writer) is to make them strong and send them into the world to survive and thrive (be read) Nice job. Rebecca
The Title Writer (Article) - 12/17/2004 8:04:41 AM
I train novice motorcyclists and sometimes they want to know well when does it happen, when do I become a motorcyclist? Our response is to say that if they have an interest in motorcycling and a desire to improve thier skill then they are a motorcyclist. They may be at a different point in thier motorcyclists journey than others but they are still a motorcyclist.
If we enjoy writing and are interested in improving our skill, we are writers.
Labels are very unimportant anyway.
Have a great day.
The Title Writer (Article) - 12/17/2004 7:18:45 AM
Cheryl, You have classic writer's syndrome. Welcome to the club. I view my stories in my head as movies, and let the characters speak for themselves. You are a writer indeed!!!
The Title Writer (Article) - 12/17/2004 5:44:24 AM
I am proud to be called a writer these days!!
And not a fighter or a talker....I did that way to long!!
The Title Writer (Article) - 12/17/2004 4:39:57 AM
As a reader of this piece, I applaud your writer's thoughts; there are some marvelous ones here, Cheryl.
Power Of Words (Article) - 9/23/2004 5:30:12 PM
Wow what a different perspective. I am a new mother and I agree with you %150 our children need to know that they are cherished and valued. I really believe that this would cut down on so many of the ills of society.

I tried to answer some of these rhetorical questions...but the answers just weren't right. Guess that's what rhetorical is all about. Thanks for some thought provoking stuff.

It is hard to say good-bye. the only consolation, if that's what it is, is that we too will say good-bye someday.

Yes, indeed you are. Your words are very moving!
A Touch (Poetry) - 3/4/2011 10:25:01 AM
I love your poem. I've been married 44 years to a lovely bride. My only problem is, as we age one of us must go before the other.

Yes, we all need a fried who never leaves us. Happy writing.
All I Can Do (Poetry) - 8/26/2008 9:08:31 AM
I could be wrong, but I am sensing that in this poem, you may be wary or tired of a particular situation, as you may have already tried many different things to solve a problem. Is it that you have solved a particular problem, but now you can not do any more in the situation? Or is it that you have finally decided to make your own choices and do "whatever you can do??" I am very interested in this poem.
Autumns Splendor (Poetry) - 8/26/2008 9:06:18 AM
I know that poetry can mean different things to different people. As I read this poem about summer turning to Autumn, I can equate it with life's changes. To me, the coming of Autumn signifies changes and new experiences. I love the way you described autumn as her "dressing gown of many colors." Stop into my den sometime!
Between The Sheets (Poetry) - 8/26/2008 9:04:36 AM
I can relate to this poem. It is amazing how the memory of forbidden love can last a life time. I can sense the passion, the lust, and the sadness, as the night ended. Excellent poem! Please stop by my den and let me know what you think of my work. I will track your work for a while, as I absolutely love some of your works.
Am I Worthy (Poetry) - 8/10/2008 12:23:43 AM

Wow, brings back memories, and the end is hard, but you are right, we have to love enough to let go.
Friend (Poetry) - 3/28/2008 8:36:35 PM
...pen of friend...to let go...like a balloon in the sky...wondering if the string has left your hand...but see the lifted color...to the heavens held...to let go.
excellent compassionate pen of forever...a friend.
Friend (Poetry) - 3/28/2008 2:37:41 PM
How deep in anguish you are, yet resolved to let go when the time comes is not an easy task. But let go we must and pray the journey into God's house is a pleasant one. God bless.....
Be always safe,

REJOICE one year later Katrina (Poetry) - 10/1/2006 5:17:56 AM
I'm an Aussie who was fortunate enough to see New Orleans one year BEFORE Katrina. I felt for the people and was saddened too that so much history and beauty was washed away. Of course, world-wide media coverage dropped right off once the crisis was over and I often wonder how 'Norlins' is doin' and will it recover its pizazz. Thanks for reminding me of a lovely place and a sad sad time. Jim

Katrina (Poetry) - 9/10/2005 10:04:59 AM
The extended metaphor of giving birth is expertly executed here, and works well to define the tragedy and horror that is Katrina. The question at the end is dissettling and haunting, as it should be.
Katrina (Poetry) - 9/5/2005 12:29:07 PM
i love this. very true and beautifully scripted.
Katrina (Poetry) - 9/4/2005 8:07:18 PM

Forces Of Nature (Poetry) - 6/26/2004 5:36:14 AM
Ah, in praise of Mother Nature! One can never get enough of this topic. Nicely done!
Roundabout Knight (Poetry) - 5/20/2004 8:25:02 PM
ahhh...clever with a classical flavor...I like pieces of work done "outside the box"...well done, Cheryl
Roundabout Knight (Poetry) - 5/9/2004 11:50:00 AM
I like this. It has a lot of minor problems with tenses, etc., but I like the idea. You need an "ed" here:
The consecrate knight of burnished bronze
on mighty steed off he rides
no longer searching for his maiden fair
and a "d" here:
He froths in tears of destined dismay
There are some awkward lines here, but they really don't detract from the poem that much. I think you have a talent for writing, but need to brush up on a few things. Good job over all.
Roundabout Knight (Poetry) - 4/5/2004 10:28:02 AM
That's very clever...and highly original

A fine way to express the scent of life. Especially, "white sheets flapping on a clothes line . . . achromatic scent," and "Lighting crackled . . . scent of inferno fire." Great!

The Code (Poetry) - 1/3/2004 11:03:12 AM
Something I'm known to say often is this: "The written word is left to the interpretation of both the sender and the receiver." Surely, this holds true of the Bible, as it most assuredly does with poetry. As an aside? I can interpret something I read in the Bible today differently from the last time I might have read it.
Excellent last line.

Covered Bridges (Poetry) - 12/5/2003 3:46:36 PM
"my heart races at the hollow thumping
knowing there is only air and ice flow below
yet this old bridge does hold me dear
for at least this one more trip across
I turn looking back over my shoulder
as the bridge fades in distance view
much to my glad hearts amazement
this bridge of hollow countenance
appears to posses a parting smile "
