Thank you for this enlightening and humorous post expressing the feelings of a number one winning writer. I appreciate your message, and will use it as encouragement to write and post more often in 2022. See you next year in the top ten list.

A subtle jab at FS and its method of determining the top ten. Do I sense sarcasm here when thanking readers. Well, you do have a case-- readers can help to acknowledge the best by awarding a six to those who really deserve it. Well, as my father used to say--100 years from now, no one will know the difference. :-)

    Let's be honest, too many folk just give five stars because they are afraid to give less. We all know it's true so it becomes meaningless. if we had more six stars that would also become the norm for a lot of mediocre writing too. All the best

Gareth,

hahahahaha! And does this mean you will again now fade into oblivion now that you have reached your goal? You'll take a screenshot of this moment, sigh with satisfaction, and call it a day - or year? hahaha

You're funny. Thanks!

I love it. One year, I was #1 for eleven days. hahahaha. Mine didn't last long, but it was because no one was posting much at the time, being it was right after New Year's Day. I think you belong in #1 or at least the top five all the time!

You are one of the best author's on this site so it wouldn't at all surprise me to see your name there for 2022. I keep looking to see if this is a contest entry, but I don't see that it is. Thank you for sharing.

Congrats on your accomplishment. The best I've done was cracked the top 25 in short stories and poetry for 2020. I hope this won't be your last post of the year. I'm still working on my first post for 2022. Stay safe and healthy in the new year.

My favorite line of the story was--"Never give up on your dreams."

I was gone for ten years, but always dreamed I'd write again after life's journey opened the possibility once more. I almost gave up when I first came back, but like you, I was determined to keep a promise and I did.

I congratulate you on your accomplishments and I am thrilled you've reached your goal. Nothing was handed to you... You earned it! Now on to greater achievements in 2022!

Smiles, Carol

This is so amusing, especially knowing your opinions on the ranking game. Why did you promote it so high. Do you have secret aims we don't know about? Unfortunately I already gave you all my six star ratings, so I can't reward this any higher than five - I will save you some sixes for next week.

    I had a tonne of bonus pumps left over so I thought I'd be ironic about the whole thing!

    I am hoping to post more this year. I've not done much the last two.
    All the best
