All I can say is WOW!
This is amazing. I never thought that many people would take the time to read the start of my story and actually provide constructive feedback, encouragement, and even offers of assistance! Thank You SOL community! Let me give some bulk answers to some common comments:
- Yes I need a proof reader! I did it myself and my brain seems to read words that are not really there.
- If you point to them I will fix them! I don't take offense easily so feel free to bash any grammar or logic flaws. Or if you just hate me that's fine too!
- My personal favorite. Yes, English (US) is my first and only language.
- While I really posted this too early, I am encouraged to continue and intend to do so.
One last thing. I've discovered that Yahoo's online email does funny things with threading and makes it difficult to tell which emails I've already read and replied to. I'll be changing my email address for SOL to prevent this problem, but I hope that I've replied to all of those that took the time to send me a note. If I missed a question that you would really like answered please feel free to resend.
