My list of 500 members is arranged alphabetically by first name, and I'd rather not scan the whole list of 500 names for "Soren" as a last name--especially since I don't know if that even is your last name! LOL
If you'd rather not post it here in the public forums, please feel free to e-mail me or send me a PM.
Ah, the 'all-clear hinting' & 'brick throwing' have let my cat out of the bag anyhow. I picked the name before I knew what all went on here. I've enjoyed myself greatly these last couple of weeks and couldn't resist plunging into the 500. My name is Tom Skene, and Soren Kierkegaard (SK) is my favorite writer and wrote under many pseudonyms, so I thought it an appropriate tribute...in review it probably would have been best to pick Skene as a name, but I'm enjoying being Soren Jr. for now!
As for reviewing my work, I'm new overall and don't have much out there. I did see that March has a subject of Justice
and I touched on this in my last Challenge entry 'Jonah: Witness on a Hook'
, commenting that he wanted "justice over love" and the whole poem revolves around the topic. Ah, but it wasn't a Top 5 in Beginners, so it may need some work. I actually placed 15th in Beginners last week with 'My Sister, Socrates'
, which was my first entry ever! How exciting to place at all with so many good writers here. Haven't seen whether I made the top 15 this week, but it was a fun poem to write regardless.
A question for you...I deleted my first IM and I'm afraid I didn't know how to handle IM and deleted a message I shouldn't have. Would you do me a favor and send me a test IM? So lonely with '0' right now!
Also, can I retrieve a deleted message? (never read it, at least I don't think so! sure hope it wasn't an offer.
Thanks for the welcoming and for this website and community being in existence at all. I'm an overflow of ideas person who needs to work on tidying up his writing, so let me know how I can be of assistance to FW. I have a whole lot of articles that need editing prior to publishing in the Articles section, but will be adding more soon.
