      Thank you for your kind comments.  

      Dimples?  You mean spare tires on my face?  Rolls of indulgence?

  3. Hello Alexander!  Welcome to the club.  Are you a NanoWrimo veteran?  What do you write?  

  4. Sure, I'll give it a whirl.  my email is hisrachnorgat@gmail.com 

     

    How long ago did this happen?  I'm glad I know the ending!

  5. Welcome to christianwriters.com!  I am excited that you are here.  The first thing people do is go over to meet and greet and write a little 'Hi I'm WriterKate' blurb about yourself.  Read the others and you'll know the general tone people take.  

    May I thank you for reading Hagovi's Bridge?  Your comments are very encouraging. :x

  6. Hello!

    How wonderful to connect with you here too!  I need to update my notice about Hagovi's bridge to show your gorgeous cover.

    I hope you find this a helpful and friendly place, within the usual bounds of internet caution, of course.

    See you around!

    Nicola

  7. Right back at you!  Though no one can tell me what the follow part is all about.  I've been following you all along.  Looks good for the statistics, I guess :D

      I don't trust many WiFi's. Hackers are always looking for stuff so I don't make myself noticeable if I can avoid it. Perhaps I'll look at though, is it on here? Plan on taking my laptop[ and edit book 2 (The Restoration) using what I've learned so far on The Sacrifice. Should help me keep my mind from going where it doesn't need to go.

      Yes, mind control.  I've had my husband in emergency surgery, life and death stuff.  God's peace really is for when you need it.  I wouldn't be here without Him.

      Wattpad is perfectly public.  A plagarist could swipe it.  I'm choosing to think my stuff is not good enough to be published so why would someone steal it?  Naive, maybe.  I am not planning on making money off Hagovi.  She is a throw away to build platform.  

      I do have to warn you, the first content they throw at you is pornographic and disgusting.  If you type in bible it gets a little better.  I am slowly discovering the Christian community there.  My user name is NicolaLeoshine.

      Okay, I will keep that in mind. Thanks for the warning.

  8. Hello From Canada!  

    Welcome to our fellowship.  I was greatly cheered by your message of greeting.  Your English writing superb.  Did you learn this in school?  I expect the internet is a strong source of English to read, even if one cannot trust it all to be beneficial.

    I look forward to reading your messages on the forum. Don't say you are 'only a teenager'.  1 Timothy 4:12  (NIV) says: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 

    You have a perspective on the world that the rest of us need to hear. Be bold and strong. 

    In Christ's service,

    Nicola

      Hello! 

      Thank you for writing on my profile. Actually, I have been learning English for 5 years in the school, and then I was going to private teacher for a year, and then I passed my English language exam in intermediate-up level, and now I am looking forward to my advanced exam. :) But my vocabulary is still not enough, and I am looking for a beta reader for my other writings. 

      You have mentioned that you are from Canada; well, I haven't been there yet, but I am planning to go there once, because it seems a beautiful country full of mountains (and I love them). 

      As for being young, many people think that if you are a teenager, you cannot see the world rightly, however I have read books, I travelled to foreign countries, and I have seen many things, and I think see them in a mature way. But of course, I should read and learn a lot more. 

      Thank you again :)

      Hello!

      Well done! Congratulations for passing your intermediate level English.  You must be a born scholar to look forward to an advanced exam, and therefore you will do well.  

      I would love to Beta read for you.Where would I find your work? Would you send it to me via email?

        Would you return the honour and read something for me?  Do you know Wattpad.com?  If you are careful to select non-mature content, you can find fascinating stories there.  I have one up called Hagovi's Bridge.  I am still writing it so you won't be able to read the end yet. Actually, even I am looking forward to knowing how it ends.  It has surprised me many times as I have written it!  

      Canada has many diverse landscapes, and yes, all of them are beautiful.  I live near the Rocky Mountains.  I grew up on the shores of Lake Ontario.  We have three oceans, millions of islands, the North Pole, deserts with rattle snakes, glorious deciduous forests.  One thing that we don't have is tropical rain forest, though I think we have some in the fossil record.:D  

      I am delighted to be in correspondence with you.  I await your response with joy in my heart.

      In Christ's service, 

      Nicola

      Dear Nicola! 

      Thank you so much, I am really happy to find a beta reader. As for my exam. I would like to say thanks for congratulating me, and also because you wrote me. You can't expect how much I am obsessed with talking to people, who can boat with the fact that they were born to an English speaking country, and can talk fluently in English. I am in love with these cultures, and I especially like the language, because I find the basics easy to learn, and its sound is beauteous (especially if we compare it to my mother language (Hungarian) or German :D ). 

      Well, when we learnt about Canada at school I was impressed by those landscapes and mountains, and ever since this I would like to travel there. 

      Well, I don't know your email adress, but if you write it to me, I write you an email glady. :) 

      Thank you again :) 

       

  9. Hello and welcome to NaNoWriMo club. What are you writing this month?  And how are you doing with that word count?  

    We hope that belonging to our community gives you a boost toward your goal.

      Thank you, Nicola. I am writing a nautically themed book on Evangelism for this NaNoWriMo. I know this month will not see a large book produced but it will at least encourage me to prepare in advance for next year and aim for a full novel. Word count target is 25000 for this year and God willing a lot higher next. It's great to be part of a club that is encouraging and fun to be part of.

      Hello!

      I love nautical books.  I think it began with Arthur Ransom and Swallows and Amazons as a child. I devoured Hornblower and Ramage as a teen. I read Master and Commander and didn't go any further with that series. Too worldly.  

      What era is your story?  What ocean, or sea, or lake?  How are you going with your word count.  Just over a week to go!  

      In  joyful anticipation of your reply,

      Nicola

      Hi Nicola, Sorry for the late reply, I have also loved the Hornblower series and they really make the life at sea come to life. My series is set around my own personal experiences within the Navy and the Offshore Industry in the North Sea. My word count is not as good as I had hoped, I had aimed for 1000 words a day but realistically get around half of that daily. I took this November to test the waters so to speak and I can see there will be some readjusting with regards prior training. Overall though, I have managed to adopt some good habits and prepare some further outlines ahead of my schedule so it has lots more positives than expected. 

  10. Hello!

    I'm honoured that you followed me.  I thought I'd return the favour, though to be perfectly honest, may i ask, what does this mean?   Do you see stuff I comment on right away? 

    Is it an endorsement?  You are high profile around here, and extremely helpful with all that you find and post.  You hardly need my endorsement!  

    Any way, thanks and see you around the forum!

      Hey, Nicola,
      I'll be honest, I don't exactly know what Following means over here. I do know Rebecca regularly changes things up here and provides a new look and new tools and I enjoy the quality of your comments. ;)

      So we have a mutual admiration society!  I love it!  I am grateful to Rebecca and all who run this site for introducing us to each other.   

      Long may you write.
