Syntax failures

Greeting all

1st off I want to thank all the many people who have made comments, and have pointed out my errors. You might think a writer might grow to hate having them pointed out to him. Not me, I am a glutton for punishment. Besides I like a well written story as well as the next person, and after reading my own stories after posting them, I was thinking the commenter's were being too kind.

I have been getting some very good help, the thing is I want to post before they send back their edits.

This I believe is now costing me readers wanting to see more.

Many like the story, but wading through the errors is growing old. and they will stop unless I correct them, So I'm going to keep on writing but only posting once a week giving my editors time to do their thing.

When I went into this it was with my eyes wide open as far as realizing how poor my writing skills went. I was hoping to improve and I thought well it can't be that hard.

OK my eyes were open but I was still not seeing but I am learning. this is my first attempt at writing for others enjoyment, and it has been a joy to find so many people enjoy my work.

I am not going to stop, as the way I write I really do not know what is going to happen next, and I want to find out too!

I have an idea, but the devil is in the details.

Now I have read a lot of good stories that started then for some reason the author stopped. This story will have an ending even if I end up blowing up the world to do it. What can I say 'shit happens' But that is not going to happen here. I may not add a second story, but I will finish this one.

I want to thank everyone who has helped if not for you it would be a lot worse. This story is as much yours as it is mine.

I have gotten advice as a new writer, and I am acting on it as quickly as I can. There are a lot of tools I didn't know I had at hand, and it is a learning experience. I love it, I was thinking hell before this I was just breathing air, now I am breathing life.

Thank you all for you kind words and assistance
