  • Dear Alex does no-one love you?

    I write on cowbird because it is what I want to do. I like the idea of snip-its of my life, my thoughts being caught here on this story store. I love reading so many different stories, true life, fiction, poems...... I like the diversity of this community.

    I did not know that there was a most popular story, writer on Cowbird. I am not interested in who it is, only are their stories inspiring or interesting? My ambition is not to clamber to that accolade but to write something here every once in a while. I love clicking the love heart to send it like a butterfly winging through the ether to touch someone and tell them

    "hey there I have listened to your story, I love it because it made me laugh, cry, think....

    I love having someone send that heart of love to me. Someone has heard my story, my snip-it from my life

    There is no grade to make here! It is a place to tentatively float a story and then to write more and more and learn how to write with more ease and get the writing sharper, clearer. Perfect prose is not always interesting. This is the place of learning and for sharing a craft and being loved for it. A collective record of our lives, creativity and imagination.

    I am grateful for your stories and love being here with you.
