Hey, Scott. Nice to see you, Bill. There is certainly coffee left. It's fun to watch how crowded it is getting around here. Nice to see.

And a lot of new stories to enjoy, as well.

By the way, the Mizzou Tigers are beating the South Carolina Gamecocks 10 to zip at present.

Good day, Cynthia. So nice to see you today. I've been outside trimming back some branches that were hanging down over the sidewalk. Some ladies were doing their morning walk and asked me if I could as I was repairing a bird feeder the squirrels are messing about with.

I've also had to reprogram the switch for the exterior lights. They are not coming on and off properly. Must have been a power spurt that played with the timing. That's done. If it comes on at the proper time this evening then it's working again.

The pup is settled down beside me here. I had my oncologist give me an official note saying he is a service dog. He'll be joining us in the coffeehouse from now on.

Larry mentioned the first story by newcomer, Red Writer, 'A Warmer Reality'. Here's the link.

https://

It's already received a rare Editor's Pick (EP). Read it. You'll be glad you did.

And for a fun change-of-pace after finishing that story, scroll up to his newest, Dig It.

No need to thank me or Larry. Just another fine free service of:
NO HOPE of PROFITABLE PUBLICATION, Ltd.

Your post of the URL for redwriter's EP story did not work, Bill. I'll post it again, now:

Until some pals from around the world start stopping in to fill up the evenings I doubt we will have a pot brewing during the evening hours in the States. But we did get one of those newfangled coffee makers that let you make one cup at a time. And a carton of the little cannister things you put in. So you can make a cup whenever you want.

The water is always hot for tea drinkers any time, night or day.

You know, I think I'll get one of my several doctors to write a little note saying my Victor is a service dog for me. He'll start hanging out in the one the easy chairs.

Dinner is almost ready. See y'all later.

Good morning from Kansas.

Working on my first fresh cuppa java. I went to the final dress rehearsal of A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. So well done and the costumes were outstanding. Of course, my wife is a volunteer in the costume department, so I would think that, for sure.

It was nice to see Lady Sharon drop by yesterday. Perhaps she'll do so more often.

I noted that Molly is giving us a heads up that a History category is coming and is being worked on. Another fun way to write stories.

Tonight is the final dress rehearsal of a musical comedy here in town. I'll be going to see it. It's a fairly new musical called "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. It should be fun going to support fellow actors and crewmembers.

Have to leave the pup alone but he will be fine.

Having some tea right now before dinner will be ready.

Just had a reminder from a writer that Stories Space has a Facebook page. It's not used much but it does exist.



I left FB some time ago. Well, I've left about three times but this one was likely for good. Never found much use for the place.


I mentioned the FB site because LadySharon left a message there. I haven't seen her here on-site in ages.

Just finished my dance class. It is a great, fun workout for me. Working on my third cuppa java now.

I'm now finishing my first cuppa java for the day. In about an hour it will be time to head over to the arts center for my dance class.

I had a story in my head during sleep last night when just drowsing. But too lazy to get up and write anything down. It's gone for now.

Well, good day, all.

Good day. Now working on my second cuppa java. The coffee was good today. Plenty left.

Nothing important on the horizon for the day. Just touching base.

I have to make an appointment for Victor. It's time for his yearly shots at the vet. He's a good patient so no worries there.

Hope your days are happy. flower

Any word on Mnedalla getting an expresso machine? Thought not.

Larry, I have RR's story on my 'to read' list. Two more that shouldn't be missed are, Molly's introspective, 'And I Left', along with Verbal's masterful, 'Ground Zero'., .

There's also been a whole host of 'Back To School' challenge stories and I swear on my tattered copy of Strunk & White that all of them are five-worthy.

Coffee -- please.

Thanks for the suggestions, Bill. I had already read Verbal's and just now, before entering the coffeehouse here, read Molly's musing. I am fairly certain I've read all of the challenge stories.

I need one last cuppa java and then the caffeine-free zone will be entered.

Had to go out for some shopping but I'm back for my second cuppa java.

Really, really need to do some writing today. I think its been two weeks. That's quite a gap for me.

I'll see what I can do today. flower

Edit: I forgot to mention that a new writer here, edbiver83, has a story up that displays a lot of talent. You might check it out on the home page.

Larry, in the 'first thing first' department, would you mind sending Molly a PM with info about the new multi-chapter organizing feature you helped Gav design? She has not heard about all that.



I am messaging Maggie since I was one of the ones who requested it originally. I'll include a link to Gav's explanation of it.



Good morning. I did send a message to Molly as per Bill's request. I have already created eleven Chapter Story series that appear in my All Stories. I'll do about three a day until I get it completed for all the series I've written over the years. I'm trying not to tax the moderators because it appears this simple change to a story sends it to the mods for new verification.

I'm going to have one more cuppa java and then continue with my computer work.

Cheers. flower

Good morning Darren, Scott. Just got some fresh coffee from the pot to get started today.

One thing new members need so know is how to get their stories on the All Picks list on the home page. Your story will only be selected by the system to be there if you first have at lease ten votes on your piece. It is easy to see that not a lot of stories are able to do that.

You may get views from guests just stopping in to see what is new in the reading list. But you won't get many votes unless the person scoring knows you and likes your work. What I'm saying is so many new authors come here, start posting stories, and wonder why they have had few if any comments. Very little response.

The answer is fairly simple. Most people won't read your work if you're not taking the time to look into theirs. That is one reason why friendships are formed, and people follow each other. I hate to see people come and they seem to leave after posting a story or two. They're not getting the response they crave. But it can be a reciprocal thing here on our site.

Time to do my morning computer chores. flower

Good day to one and all. I'm working on my second cuppa java right now.

Just let the pup out for his morning in and out. We will take a walk at noon.

I think I may have some time to work on the challenges here. I'll see what inspirations come my way.

Edit: Bill, Gav has not added the series application to our submission panel here. I just checked in the story submission panel and it is not there. That will have to wait, I suppose.
