Yesterday, I received my copy of  For RHINO in a Shrinking World,  the anthology published to raise awareness and funds of their plight.

Just a quick flick through and I am very impressed.  Although my entry ‘Thandi‘ wasn’t successful, those that were are worth a read.

So I posted my poem up on the  ABC Tales board  and received some complimentary feedback and today – a cherry!

Thank you to the ABC Powers That Be for making my Sunday.

Hyde Park in February… too hot to be out of the shade.

I’ve just found this beautiful poem on ABC Tales , so when you have a moment indulge yourself.

As a fan of the site for many years, I’ve benefited greatly from comments, encouragement and the sheer joy of reading wonderful words from writers I wouldn’t have read otherwise.

The very first item I posted was on the 15th March 2006 was a short story ‘Write to Romance’.   (I’ve posted loads of poems and stories on ABC Tales since.)

That story has since been read by 874 people (blows my mind!) and earned a ‘Cherry’ from the editors – such a huge boost in confidence.

So I recommend, anyone with stories or poems to share, join this fabulous FREE site and see what others think of your words but importantly,  receive some very constructive feedback from talented and experienced others.

Such a safe and nurturing environment is rare on the net.  I’m often inspired by what I read on there so I’m about to post this poem posted on here  in February, in response to ‘Bee’ and her poem ‘As Autumn Leaves’.

Now that internet is ‘old hat’ I don’t feel the need to have multiple ‘pages’ spread all over the place although they serve me well when people Google my name, I’m slowly reducing the information on my official web pages here:  http://francesmacaulayforde.com to cut down the repetition.

Of course I’ll keep my presence on professional sites where I have full membership such as the Australian Society of Authors, the Australian Writers Guild, Australian Poetry, Australian Literature, SCWBI or crew pages: Screenwest, Film & Television Institute, ABC Tales   IMDB  and others.  There’s even an interview on Fremantle Press.

So in future, I’ll just focus on regularly updating Facebook (for all the goss), LinkedIn (for professional networking), ABC Tales (to post writing regularly) and here, where I’ll keep in touch with my followers in gratitude for their interest.

I’ve used ABC Tales to publish many of my stories and poems which are already part of the public domain.  It helps to have somewhere central for them but it’s also facinating to see how many people read your stories and poems and which they choose.

By far my most popular story has been ’25 minute Journey’ about travelling between Perth City and the Northern Suburbs, an amalgamation of shorter pieces which appeared in my first book ‘Hidden Capacity ~ a poet’s journey’.

I’m currently adapting the story ’25 Minute Journey’ for the screen.
