    While browsing through the tabs and under LW Share Stories, I do not see where we can upload our story on that page. Shouldn’t there be a box where we can do this on the page? Can we upload 2-3 weeks before the last Tuesday of the month when things are due? Thanks.

      Thanks for the heads up, Norma. I added comments to the Share Stories page, so you should be able to upload your story now. We may split the uploads into separate pages by month, but you can upload your story any time.

      I just sent email. Having major problem getting into this site. When I think I am in and click on a box, I am thrown back to sign in. Do we use same User Name and passcode for Writing Your Life and Life Writer. I have established separate but maybe this is the problem. HELP Ada

        Ada, I set up a separate user name and pass code for Life Writer. That way there is no confusion.

          Norma, Amanda helped me. I needed to clear history. I had done and redone and my computer was confused. I laughed. Of course my computer is confused—-it is MY computer. Join the family😎

    I have several questions. I ordered the book in large print so all my page numbers do not match Patricia’s but reading schedule shows 34 chapters I have 39????

    I also have random words and sentences that are in bold type. Does your book also have this??

    I’m not really big on description after reading the first 2 chapters I was not sure I would make through the entire book. But the more I read the book the better it got. The interview with the author said she wrote each chapter as a short story and that helped me understand.

    Sorry this was so long

      Hi, Becky. I see what happened. I put chapter 34, about the the author. I should have put chapter 34 through about the author. I have forty chapters in my copy as well. A couple of them have different names, which is interesting.

      I have not a clue why yours might have bold text. I don’t remember seeing any as I read the book, and bold is not usually found in published books.

      I’m glad you gave the book some more time. I think you will end up liking it a lot.

    Hi Amanda and Patricia. I was using the tracker and noticed that I could not enter any time in minutes. I do not always get to 1 hour increments. Also, minutes count. I’d like to be honest and accurate. If I am doing something on my part let me know. Thanks for all your help!

      Thanks for the heads-up, Jennifer. I fixed the spreadsheet, but you’ll need to round your time to the nearest fifteen minutes and add it as portions of an hour, e.g., .25, .5, .75. I appreciate you letting us know.

    Amanda, First, thank you for restoring my missing story. Second, please share the reasoning behind the group story pages. I can understand posting the group stories together; however, it seems as though all members of the Life Writers’ will miss the cross fertilization of all submitted stories. I would like to read stories from the other groups as well. It would be time consuming to access each group in order to do this.What is the limitation of placing all stories together in one place? We would then publish our replies as we wish. This method seemed to work well previously. Thanks.

    Amanda, today (Nov.9), I tried to use the Print Form Button on the Story Review Form but nothing happened. Please check to make sure it is working OK. Thanks. Norma

    Thank you for the great video clip. I sure appreciate your enthusiasm, knowledge and teaching style. Slowly but surely I will improve my story telling with more creative ways of describing color to paint a picture.~ KMD

    Amanda-Are we allowed to give more definitive feedback to writers not in our own group?

    I have a problem posting my story using a simile. Is there a page strictly for that? I did not see it. I only saw the old page where we post stories we share with our writing buddies. Would appreciate your feedback. Thank you.

    I tried to go to site and watch previous videos again “Seeing it through”. Could not videos in sequence from this sight. Had to go back to email and find that time and click on from there. Can this be improved?

    Could not find High Acheiver anywhere. Educated is on site but not High Acheiver. I know I saw it earlier today. Just went back to listen to any updates and it had vanished. Help Ada
