Words With Friends, Our Vocal Connections

How we benefit from connecting with and talking to our Vocal Friends

Come Talk To Me ,,,,,, I would love it

I used to play a game called Words With Friends on Facebook , and then on my phone. I ditched it on Facebook for intrusive adverts , then on my phone because it ran down the battery so quickly and the number of women who contacted me and would not accept I was just there to play THAT game.

I think I ditched it and lost a few friends I played with, it was just a game , and was not feasible for me. I couldn’t play it on Facebook and it destroyed my phone.

Then I believed the Vocal blurb and signed up, and faltered into a few stories , but was worried it would affect my blog Seven Days In. Well it has but instilled be with a sort of writing discipline and I have really enjoyed picking up on that, but no one was reading my stuff , friends on twitter and facebook would like my post but bar two or three would never read the article, as someone said “I don’t like reading” , hmmm how does one deal with that.

Well I found a group on Facebook , then another , then another. At the bottom of this article are links to groups and people who have made my stay on Vocal and in these groups so pleasurable.

A good friend pointed out that if links are too close together you cannot access them pn your phone so all the links that matter are at the bottom but I am going to list some of the really beneficial and pleasurable interactions I have had.

I have become Facebook friends with some as well .

All these people are well worth visiting and reading.

The links will be to their Vocal profiles.

Most recently Melissa Ingoldsby who asked me to play a guitar riff for her , so I did and she also liked my latest YouTube post which I posted of the song that got me into Tom Waits which I had promised another friend for about twelve months.

Danielle Mosley a lovely poetess who I love reading and interacting with on the various groups

Lesley Anne Admin of Vocal Social Society who I seem to have known forever , hard working , a wonderful writer, always helpful and supportive, with some stunning ideas. I feel privileged to be a Facebook friend of hers. It was shee who suggested making links easier for phone users. An excellent mind.

Tiffany Gordon . I am feeling that I am repeating myself and realise this is just going to be I love all these writers, but I actually do.

Tony Stauffer , a great guy and writer , who’s friend request I rejected because I didn’t know he was a Vocal member , that is resolved now.

Elissa Dawson a lovely friend and very supportive and another fantastic writer who really puts my stuff in the shade where it belongs.

Tom Bradbury . Was A prolific and well read goto person for advice on almost anything and a great tale teller and raconteur, and good supportive constructive critic , but died in a terrible Mill Fire in September 2021. Follow his link to read his work,

Judey Kalchik admin of The Vocal Creators Support Group , usually my go to group to post new material. She is supportive of my writing as well as my non Vocal work too.

Julianne McKenna another supportive writer with a penchant for the majickal realms

Jennifer Christiansen who shares a love of True Romance with me , which is a recommendation for anyone

Rahman Moshiur always positive and a great technical writer and goo Facebook Friend

Alan Gold - An engaging guy great to chat with and read on here

Caitlin McColl - Enjoyable writer who pops up with support even when you don’t expect it

John Welford - Who has been supportive and offered some excellent constructive criticism

Ana Maria Radulescu - Another lovely supportive writer , reader and conversationalist.

Jan Portugal - Another wonderful Vocal friend who I love chatting with

I am going to stop here , but you are now my Words with friends . Anyone not on this list I still love you. I know it’s a bit female heavy but I tend to find women easier to talk to , always have, often to my huge disadvantage.

As a teenager conversations went “Do you want to go out with me?” , “Nooo … we can talk to you!!!!”

The music to lead this is "Come Talk To Me" buy Peter Gabriel. I hope you all do.
