I'd like to take the time to thank those who commented on my stories via email. I can assure you it's much appreciated even or perhaps especially so the critical ones. I have been writing now for several years but still think of myself as serving an apprenticeship of sorts and have much to learn, criticism helps there, both negative and positive.
As for the stories themselves, well mostly they are about cheating and getting away with it, sometimes involving family members, sometimes not. That's not to say I approve of cheating, just that I believe it goes on and that those caught are only the tip of the iceberg so to speak. That's one of the reasons why I don't write revenge stories, nor about people being caught, though I know some people prefer stories where infidelity does not prosper.
All my stories are set with UK protagonists, as I'm based in the UK I find it easier to relate stories from places and people I know. This occasionally puts across the odd bit of slang or colloquialisms in the way the story is presented, words like Mum instead of Mom simply because in the UK we don't use Mom and it doesn't quite sound right to our ears as it trips off the tongue. If I were to be writing a story about German protagonists I'd use Mutti or perhaps Oma, it all adds colour (not color) to the tale and lets you into a an illusion created by words where the people are real to the extent of being placed where they are in the tale.
None of my tales are true, but they all contain elements of truth and I believe the mind or imagination is the best place to play around in, there's less chance of someone getting hurt. That said, there's nothing better than real life and grasping an opportunity when one comes along.
Just never forget the Rules as given by Dave in 'A new beginning'
Rule 1) Don't get caught.
Rule 2) If in any doubt about any situation, refer to Rule 1)
Just remember these are only stories meant to entertain, never presume they are true or that I condone what's going on. Simply enjoy or if not, let me know why and I'll try to improve on the next one.
