Not really impressive.
The Hardest Time of All (Short Story) - 9/6/2008 2:43:58 PM
"Her mouth, though wide and well-formed, had a sad, downward cast, as if life had proved a bitter disappointment; a disappointment from which she would never recover."
"Her gaze rested on the distant mountains where, even now, men were digging feverishly in the earth in search of dreams."
I hail from a village where the life is painted with cruel, dull colors. This is touching.

The very first line pulled me into this story. Intriguing and well told! The ending surprised me but the story does come full circle. Great write!

Excellent, Gwen, you took us back in time, to the hardships hardy men and women faced. And we think life is hard today. :) Well done, and welcome to AD, you're among friends.

As a very inexperienced writer, I thank you. In my class, we were told, third person is probably better because it allows you to give more depth to your character. However first person seems more passionate depending on your genre. Maybe one of these days, I'll learn how to get this right. (LOL) Thank you for being a teacher.

That's a very good point, Donan. Thanks for reminding me about it. I shall slot that point in to a future article.

Good general reminder. May need mention that writer targeting specific publisher should verify if special format required.

Hi Gwen, Again I do appreciate your dialogue. I checked out your Youtube video where you talk about your novels. I feel as if I've met you. Happy writing. Linda Newton-Perry of Forced Blood The Norseman.

Time sure does have a power that we can't control,
Leaving us to melt into the waves of its flow. . .

Yes. And if it wasn't so we would need a much bigger planet. Good writing.

Very well done.
I will try to spend some of it wisely today.
I better hurry up if I'm to do that.

Gwen, again you take me back on a journey to my youth, young lovers, carefree and careless. There is beautiful imagery in your poetry.
Time (Poetry) - 7/28/2010 3:05:51 AM
Your poem captures the relentless and remorseless march of time, it is the one thing that our technology has not been able to tame! I know that they say: 'you should grow old gracefully' but I confess, I lust for the days of my youth.
Best regards Gwen,

Sweet sentiment a mountain high, in so few words. Nicely penned Gwen. I miss my precious Mom too, and your words touched my heart.
Mother's Love (Poetry) - 3/4/2009 5:25:06 AM
Mom's not gone, but her sister is. Still, I can relate.
Mother's Love (Poetry) - 9/6/2008 12:36:42 PM
simple and powerful, god bless

Went to the fruit market today, saw sour cherries, and can remember my mother making cherry pies and pitting all those cherries for them. Remembrances of childhood days long gone. Nothing is like your Mother.
Mother's Love (Poetry) - 3/14/2008 10:27:34 AM
Short but says a thousand words. How many of us are in the same boat.
Read this with a knot in my throat.
My wee mother was in a similar way.
Hope time helps you.

Your brief writing is filled with love and emotion, as is the beautiful photograph that accompanies it. Thank you for sharing this, Gwen.

Oh Gwen to carry such an unimaginable grief, yet know God is by your side to help see you through. My heart and prayers reach out to you....
Be always safe,
Mother's Love (Poetry) - 2/26/2008 7:26:23 AM
This is quite simply beautiful and touching...and says so much that we can empathise with....the same words could have been used for me and my Mother.....
