Ok, before you even look at my profile, let me just getting on knees say I really, really think you should read my "Eyes of Violet, Heart of Gold." How long could it take you? There's only one chapter up so far. Oh? Really? Thanks! I'm so glad you decided to read it, along with some of my poetry. :-)
SHORT PART FOR QUICK READING
Can you tell I had a lot of spare time on my hands?
There are three things that I really want to tell anybody/everybody who sees my work:
~-~ My philosophy: You review me, I'll review you. Simple, isn't it?
~-~ My request: In the review that you leave (so graciously!), PLEASE tell me how you found my story. (Just in, recommendation, returning a review left by me, etc.)
~-~ My explanation: In the summaries of my works, you'll see a "B" or an "L." Here's what they mean:
B- I think this is one of my Better works
L - I think it's Lacking something and would GREATLY appreciate some advice.
PLEASE, please, please, read one of BOTH groups!

(4.) Haiku Information
Ok, yeah, I'm really bored.
A haiku is a short poem which contains a season-word (a conventional reference to the season of composition) and usually also a cutting-word (spoken punctuation marking a caesura). The typical form is 5-7-5 Japanese syllables although variations are commonplace. Most haiku are best read as being in the present tense. The typical subject matter is nature, or nature linked with human nature. The tone is sincere, usually detached.
A senryu is a poem to the same 5-7-5 pattern as haiku but lacking the seasonal reference. The subject matter is social comment, usually presented as comedy. The tone is ironic.
A tanka is a poem to a pattern of 5-7-5-7-7 syllables. Seasonal references are common but not obligatory. The typical subject matter is human relationships, with feelings often being expressed by the use of natural imagery as an "objective correlative". A minority of tanka more closely resemble lengthy haiku, with a purer focus on nature. The tanka allows for a greater subjectivity than haiku, with more "poetic" diction. The tone is passionate.
A renku or renga is a series of linked poems built into one long poem, written in co-operation by a group. The pattern is alernating links of 5-7-5 and 7-7 syllables. There is an elaborate framework of conventions governing the placement of seasonal verses and other kinds of content. The overall aim is not narrative but a scattered mosaic covering a wide range of subjects and employing a variety of tones.
(Added from dictionary) A cinquain is a five line poem, invented by Adelaide Crapsey, and based on Japanese forms such as haiku and tanka. The cinquain has a total of twenty-two syllables in lines, respectively as follows: 2, 4, 6, 8 and 2
(5.)Comments From Me!
Please review and feel free to leave (polite) criticism and suggestions.
Another (nice) thing to do is, every day you get on the site, read one random thing from the "Just In" section. Leave the first review- it gives the writer some support / helpful criticism / feelings that somebody actually reads their writing.
Thanks for dropping by my tiny section of eternity!
(6.) Everybody's work on this site is so great, I shouldn't even mention this, but I will anyway. I actually LIKE editing people's work; it makes me feel useful. (Don't even try to pretend to understand me; I've been told it's impossible.) Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I cannot access any email. What I am trying to say is: If you want me to edit your work, and you can think of a way for me to do it that doesn't include email, LET ME KNOW! Wait- how are you going to do that? Leave me a P.S. on a review. Believe me when I say I read every word of every review I get. _
(7.) P.S. TO EVERY REGISTERED WRITER ON THIS SITE: unless you have a specific reason to disable it, I think you
should be sure that you are accepting anonymous reviews. It is defaulted to not recieve unsigned reviews, but many people I've talked to are unaware of that setting. Look under "account setup"!
