A Story by Woody

Unlike what it says up top, this is not a story. It is what the title says, acknowledgement.


As none of my (modesty be damned) masterpieces has been published so far, I’ve never had the chance to express my gratitude and extend my heartfelt thanks to all those of you who complemented on my writing and said they’d enjoyed reading my stories and pseudo-poetry. Unless they were humouring me, that is. But, nah, they sounded sincere.


Anyway, without your encouraging reviews, I’d never have been able to carry on. So thank you all from the bottom of my heart.


I’d be hard put to name all of you wonderful people nor would I be able to select a few for fear of hurting the feelings of those I’d have left out.


I’ve learnt so much from the awesome storytellers and stellar poets here. I have yet to go back and do the editing but, sadly, laziness is one of my wonderful traits. But I’ll get to it some day.


Reading my stories, it may or may not be obvious that English is not my mother tongue. Most of my readers are from Europe and the US, so you might say that I come from the other side. No, stop snickering! That’s not what I meant.


That’s all I had to say. Now, you can go back to your life.

Have a wonderful day!

As you are not a formulaic writer, your constant changes of style are a breath of fresh air to me. I never suspect what is coming next, . As I 'm never disappointed (sometimes a little taken aback with your audacity)
Please keep up the momentum and your wonderful creative twists of "surreal" English.

First & foremost, I hope this is not a final curtain call or something!!!! Don't you dare!!!! We need you here, we waited all summer for your return, so you damn well better be here to stay awhile! *smile*

No really . . . in all seriousness, reading your stories has expanded my reading & writing quite a bit. As for reading, your many clever asides & double-entendre quips have taught me to pay attention & catch these sometimes overlooked, but well-crafted aspects of other people's stories. As for writing, I've gotten an appetite for funny-yukky stories with outrageous ideas . . . and I've gotten a good response on my first few efforts. When I say I've been inspired by Woody, everyone comments on how great your stories are. You have no idea how much influence you have on this website, I'm a-thinkin'! *smile*

What!!! A serious piece? Where's the wise-cracking, witty, wide boy writing I've come to expect? English may not be your mother tongue but your grammar is better than most on here. I appreciate your acknowledgement. But get back to the funny please :)
