  • Definition of Cowbird:

    A dwelling of humans from all around the world sharing their life stories, or just plain stories, and every hardship and happy memory along the way; as well as serving as a place (a website) for writers and non-writers to form as a community of Storytellers, where people can come to know some people so well on Cowbird, even though most never really meet each other in a lifetime.


    Aha! I think I've pinned that down. On Cowbird, the world seems to be so small. You can meet people in Canada or China just like you without having to hitchhike the world; you can go to Italy or Mexico just by bathing in the words of someone's story. people make friends on cowbird they might never see. And cowbird has alot of people. Well, it may seem like a lot from the inside. There is always someone out there whom you may ask, "Ever heard of Cowbird?" And they will not know what the hell you're talking about, even when you explain what Cowbird is, what it's all about, What it does.
    No doubt Cowbird has really helped people in extreme ways. Or just little ways. People here don't just write there own stories and experiences. They write to each other; they give advise. Constantly sprouting, dedicating, showing love.
    You get to know the patterns of people. Some write three a day and can't stop. Some rarely publish. Some are hard to crack, others are complete softies and will love almost anything. But every one of them, Everyone, loves a good story. It's a widely shared Human trait. One thing that connects us.
    Now, I've noticed that some people pour there hearts out into cowbird. Others, they might have nothing to say. And others, might think they have nothing to say.They might be sensitive of their friends here on Cowbird, and are worried that they're not leaving a strong, positive enough footprint in their writing. They might think their poetry is a bore. Their writing not exciting. A subject to depression.

    Well, Wu Shaman!

    This is for you.

    Please! We love you here on Cowbird. We love your writing. Your poetry isn't a bore (sometimes, maybe...). I'd seriously love to have your gift of rhyming. You've worked hard on Cowbird, to get to where you are. A true friend and inspirer to all who read your pieces. You have no idea.
    This might be the same stuff many other people have been pleading at you in their stories. Don't Delete your account! Don't Delete your Acount! Well, it's true. Please stay. Have I heard right that you are currently living in a deserted village? And, arn't you on your own there? If so, You should keep on writing, "Talk" to your fellow cowbirders who know you well and appreciate you so; as I'd think it would be lonely and silent on your own in a deserted village. Tell me if I'm wrong.
    Cowbird will keep you company. So many stories to see, so many stories to write. We love to see what you have to say, Wu Shaman.


    Maybe I'm sticking my nose in where I don't belong. Maybe you're a truly independant guy, Wu. maybe you're a stubborn guy too. You've probably made up your mind.

    But keep this in mind:

    EVERYONE HAS SOMETHING TO SAY. No matter how they say it.
