welcome back hulsey...
I have been doing the same too... been too busy writing to login except to post the newest story... currently my novel is heavily underway. It will be published hopefully by next year.
I just have to get off my butt and finish the last of my series for
sci-fi and or fantasy. Getter' dun... (Larry the cable guy)
It might become two books if i am not careful, all this good material and lots of inspiration helps.
As for the site, I miss the good old days too. Since the petty fighting is finished, hopefully people will come back, if we try to revamp the site or something to help draw the people in. It's in no way a writing.com site, by any means but i find this place a good source for inspiration sometimes reading stories. I have even had a notion to review a couple in spare time.
It serves its purpose and is positive. We just as writers have to make a new beginning and start anew. Bury the hatchet and go forward and the hell with the past.
