I decided to come back and see if and how anything had changed. I guess not.How is any contest fair if you pick 1 and only 1 story to branch off of? 3 or 4 yeah maybe but one, that's just setting things up to only fit one type of writer. I really wanted to write again and I really wanted to believe things had changed but I guess we can't all be happy, sad thing is only people happy are those everyone else has voice concern about, favorites, cliques and whatever. Take Care and enjoy the set the way it is it forces the rest of us out of contests and looking for somewhere else to write.

Thank you it is lightly based on what I have experienced in the past and how I have felt about things. It's nice to think someone might have liked the way i wrote it. Thanks again

I like to write for fun but all the new changes now makes it hard to search for stories I'm on page 35 and I just wrote it now but because now it's listed by score and not date of when it was written nobody will find it to score it or read it and comment. We might have just cut our nose off to spite our face.

My only issue now, is that when I just wrote a story it doesn't go to the front so others can see it it went to the end. It was listed by score now not by date and I do agree with all changes but I still want people to read my stories, I can't tell what i need work on if I don't get looked at.

My goodness I've only been gone a week and look what's changed!!!! Great things are here. Hi Katrina and welcome. I will voice now that I agree with the opt in approach as I like to write but having kids and so much going on I would forget to opt out and with opt in I would have to make an effort. I am one of the writers who wants to write for fun not money. I will be a long while before I am ready for any contest.

Hey this is pretty good but check out the continuation to you AJ chapter I added to it and maybe you have more ideas?.

Very nice continuation I hadn't written another chapter yet because I wasn't sure what direction to go in but this is good. Still in the investigation but not picking a killer yet, though I do have a killer in mind, just don't know how to bring him in without everything pointing to him too fast.

I appreciate your honesty it always helps when learning how to write. I took a couple of days and went and spoke with a forensic police officer and learned a bit of how they work and then a lecture at a medical class to learn a bit how they would approach a body. I tried to write the story "What happened to AJ" as I learned it and it was what this story was suppose to be about all I did different was change it from a woman to a child and back it up to give more information before I introduce the police officers and drama from there. I think you might enjoy this version a bit better. thanks so much for your advice and feel free to continue giving me advice it makes me want to write more.

Hey shadowman I tried to tie up a few of those loose ends you told me about can you read the next chapter and tell me how I did before I publish this, then I can fix it more easily. Thanks
