Appreciation for The Creative Exiles Authors and Site – Acrostic

Appreciation  …


Appreciation is sincerely felt for The Creative Exiles authors.
Perfection is not expected or mandatory, but often shown.
Perfectly playful posts portray phun people.
Ralph is a great webmaster and warrior who provides us with a great site.
Earnest and open honesty creates great friendships to cherish as gifts.
Creativity and caring emanates from the heart and soul of TCE authors.
Inspiration is expressed strongly and openly with words of wisdom.
Appreciation for each other and showing kindness makes for a warm and supportive community.
Thoughts are expressed more easily in an environment of trust.
Insanity is accepted when one has the need for venting on life’s pitfalls.
Oracles are much appreciated from those who are an infallible authority or guide on something.
Not a day goes by for me without the joy of being part of such a great group of people.

With year end coming up very soon, it is a time of reflection for me. I look back over the year 2017 and can easily see how our community and each author have grown spiritually and emotionally. I believe this is so because of the way trust and kindness has become so much a part of who we are individually and as a team of like-minded souls reaching out to each other and to our readers.

Whether we are writing poetry, memoirs, stories, essays or other pieces, and regardless of what the topic is, it is done with the thought of sharing who we are. And I must say, there is no finer group of people I have ever worked with than TCE authors.

May you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Thank you for a great 2017. I wish for each of you the very best of life full of love and joy for a Happy New Year 2018.

I am the Senior Editor and SEO Editor for The Creative Exiles (TCE). I edit all posts to help members achieve an acceptable score on Google and other search engines. I am also an author on TCE and write mainly in poetry and short stories. I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.
