    Hotep My Big Lil Sis

    The answer to your question is yours and yours only to determine.

    So long as you love writing with the passion in your heart that can not be put into words, it is for you to decide.

    I do love reading what you write, and enjoy it, so keep pushing.

    Never Doubt Yourself.

    Art is defined by the Artist.

    Much Love

    I saw your thread and I was like - :eek:
    Aint no one on this here forum got any standing to tell u you stink honey lol
    Now if your asking our honest opinion of your writing...
    I went back and read some of your work
    From when you first came through to as recent as this week :)
    I think your writing is very honest.
    I cant speak for others but I like that.
    You definitely have shown growth sister in the fluidity of your words and such.
    I think you FAR from stink lol youre a pleasantly honest poet and I think its refreshing sister :)

    I would have to agree with everybody else Sweet Sis Plat but I'm even more curious why the question even came up.

    Yes I must agree with the growth sister Triniti...Thank you for that Acknowledgement Sister. And that you for Your LOVE!!! LOL I most appreciate your words sis...I know that my writing will be printed for people to read to I wanted to know where I am as a writer so to speak(aside from my comma splices and verb agreement) I agree I am very opinionated and that is something I just might have to watch out for(might get sued!)
    Thank you Sister Triniti:heart: I hope that we might be able to close our gap of familiarity:)
    Sister Lovesdestiny you just are great roun these parts...lol(That's that Bama)
    I appreciate you and your sarcastic remark LOL. I just wanted to get a feel of what I could/should expect when I submit work to the paper. If you all enjoy my writing I believe others will too. If You all DESPISE me AND my writing...Well, that would stink there. (smh)As I said I know I am opinionated...It can happen. The expectations are different and I think sombody got the poetry already(Man!) LOL I plan on putting in the best. I appreaciate you Big Sis:) :number1:

    [email protected] Plat! Actually, I wasn't trying to be sarcastic (this time). I was sincere in my question. I didn't know if someone had spoke some unkindly words and/or constructive criticism towards your writing or if it was just a personal quest for knowledge and possible self-improvement. Based upon your answer I see it is the latter of the two which is great!

    I think no matter how well we excel in a certain area there is always room for improvement. Whenever we get to the point that we feel we have arrived....then....welll....just means we are in denial of the improvement needed! LOL

    But in my honest opinion, I think you are a great scribe with the powerful potential to go far! Maybe use spellchecker a little bit more (a little sarcasm...LOL), otherwise, keep on refining your craft!!!!

    And yes, you are quite opinionated, as we all are!!! This is the proper place for opinions but you may have to practice being more objective in the area of journalism. But hey! These are all just my own personal, unobjective, uneducated opinions! What do I know!

    Love you!!!
