Just posted a comment, Nigel. I couldn't agree more!
Thanks for taking the time. I had a good long break from the site to concentrate on my writing. It's led to some excellent successes in terms of publication in the Reader and in Crimespree. I've built up a lot of confidence in my ability and I have a number of short stories in circulation. My novel, well that's half way through, but there's been good feedback from agents and writers alike (informally, I hasten to add). I can't say how much YWO played a part in my progress, but I know that it did. I'd say thanks to all that helped. I look forward to uploading a few pieces when I get the time to do some more reviewing.
I've also done a couple of reviews on my blog that have attracted a lot of interest - without my experience of reviewing here, I wouldn't have dreamed of attempting such a thing.
