Pardon my manners...
« on: November 21, 2007, 01:51:33 PM »
   Please pardon me.  I found this website via search engine but I know quality when I see it.  It was the scintillation of the sincerity on this site that drew me in and I posted the beginning 5 pages of my novel "God Maker" for the first time anywhere in the "First 5 pages" section without introducing myself.
   Rude, now that I think about it, very sorry.
   By the way, I wanted my handle to be jsmall99, since my email is jsmall99@yahoo.com but I put in 99llamsj.  That tells you all you really need to know about me.
   I could understand if it seemed that my thoughts were, "All right you enthusiastically talented mules!  Now that I've found you, criticize my piece and be done with you! Guide me to wards my first publication, and glory that I favored you with my promising work, mediocre mundane mess, or my mindless drivel!  (Or my cry for therapeutic help....)  Whatever the case, GIVE, as is your only purpose in MY selfish existence and expect to receive nothing in return for your sincere guidance, NOTHING from this center of the universe, this all that matters, this ME. "
   I deeply apologize if I gave that impression.  So looking forward to much productive discourse.  Or else I'll place my PICTURE on the site!  Just kidding.  No, really, I 'll do it...

Thanks for sticking up for me Lannie, but this is the best tan I've had in years! So I felt a little like showing off.

FINALLY, I can get the answer I've always wanted...99, what's it like to walk with the shoe phone?  did it give you back pain?

welcome to QT 99! I don't think anyone will be holding a grudge against you, so don't feel too bad. But it was nice that you introduced yourself!
so hello and welcome!
