Question for all story writers on this forum......

Do any of you ever actually finish the stories you post on here? Every story I've read on here has not been finished, and I don't understand why, because they are so good! I'd just like to encourage you to keep going...... I've written many many stories myself, and have been tempted to stop when I hit a hard spot, but really, a finished story is a huge reward when it's all said and done. I know sometimes life gets busy and it's hard to finish something when other things take top priority, but just don't give up. You are doing a wonderful job - - just keep it up.

Hi,

I did a book reading at a library last week. The children loved the pictures of the horses. This book can be purchased if you go to the web site
www.dobbinsdreamstories.com, at the top it will take you to the publisher's site where it can be bought. American Cowboy magazine is looking at it to put in their magazine. I have my fingers crossed they do this. I hope whoever buys the book enjoys their ride to the stars.

I've actually got two (almost three, and more to come!) books that I hope to have published as a series some day - I haven't posted them on here, because it's...secret. I'l try to remember to tell y'all if they do get published!

oh ho, SamboStar, how could you be so mean as to tell us you have 3 books and not let us read them!? That is cruelty in the worst way...... =) LOL..... Anyway, we'll let you off the hook this time, but please remember to tell us if you ever get your books published!

The only reason I'm keeping it secret is because I don't want anyone taking what I've written and saying they wrote it and make money off of it, or worse, if I do get it published, and someone takes it, makes books out of it, and gives it away....you get what I mean, right?
