  • I am probably the only member of cowbird that doesn’t know all of the in’s and out’s of it. Just this morning I was looking over some of my older stories and I found someone who loved them that I hadn’t noticed before. I always try to look at the stories of readers who love one of mine. Partially because I hope to find some interesting stories, but mostly because I’m naturally nosy.
    When I tried to look at hers, there were none. So when I looked at her profile it was sparse on information. Other than her name and birthdate (she was born the year after I went into the navy), she only listed herself as Daughter, friend, mother, sister and worker. She started on cowbird nearly the same time I did and, while she is an avid reader, hasn’t put any of herself “out there” yet.
    I implore you to give us a chance to read your stuff. We don’t bite. And we might actually love your stories.
