Kelly I am enthused by the stories that people on Cowbird write; especially because the writers are so diverse. It gives me great joy to read about the lives of people in other parts of the world.
The most important aspect for me is that I feel empowered to write about my weird life, in a space of open minded people,who are prepared to accept the unusual and emotional subjects; that in other sites have not been accepted.
I other words, I feel at home here.
I enjoy coming downstairs for my Labsang Souchong tea and finding loves for my stories. It gives me a thrill. I do not worry about the size of my audience. I accept that everyone has a right to their opinion and not everyone will find my stories interesting.
I am not a competitive person. It would stress me too much to compete with the greats.
