  1. Hello Silver, I got an email and was wondering if this was where a rather good creative writing site had disappeared to. I remember having written a few pieces a number of years ago on a little community site that I really liked. I fell out of touch with it when I got married and to tell the truth I could never remember the name of it even back then, though Silver rings a bell. I went off in search of the site and found nothing but internet deadends. If this is where it ended up then I know I can bring my search to an end. If it is not then I guess the quest continues. All the same I am glad to see you on wordpress as it makes it easier to subscribe.


    1. Hi Harry! Long time no speak. πŸ™‚
      Yes our little community forum still exists. For around two years we were situated at the domain name and website:
      However, our head administrator resigned and I have been doing most of the work for around a year a half. The domain name to our website expired about a month or so back and I’ve yet to make a decision as to whether we want to renew it or not. Our community has withered and really the only thing left going for our forum members is this blog / magazine and the ability to get their writing published.
      Currently, we have reverted back to and all of your creative work, I believe, should still be there.
      Sparky and I are currently making a decision on whether to move all members over to the magazine instead, and they can contribute when they wish, or to keep the forum going. At the moment, it looks like we’ll be having our last Christmas Fiction spree this year. But by all means, please pop along to the forum if you would like. πŸ™‚
      I won’t be there during this month, due to just getting back off holiday and taking a break, but I will be back in October.
      I think you are on our mailing list, but if you just want to pop me an email to with your current email address, that would be great. πŸ™‚


      1. The computer has been hiding this from me. Or more to the point I think I may have slipped into a time distortion because 2015 does not feel like how long ago I messaged you. Clearly my life is not behaving itself at present, but I hope to reconnect with the members, not that I ever really knew anyone, but the atmosphere, was different. More hygge than one usually gets on the internet. You had/have something special there.
