Spring didn't last long

- it feels like winter again today.

It is a week since I discovered the web site youwriteon.com and since I uploaded the first two chapters of "Lavenders Blue" there have been three reviews. The first was a rave, the second almost non-committal and the third only so-so. I do have to wonder, though. The second reviewer complimented me on my fluent French (half a dozen words only) and the third suggested I might like (and I quote, spelling and all) "too pair down" a section. If that is the standard of reviewing, I'm not sure that the site is really for me.

You haven't said that anyone has panned it. Nobody hates it. That sounds pretty good to me.

I can always rely on you to see the positive side.
But seriously: I could take a panning, although it would disappoint me, but when reviewers can't spell, what hope is there? And don't tell me that "pair down" is a fat finger error!

I subscribe to the tenet that there has to be a pony in there somewhere.
Since it can't possibly be a fat finger error, maybe there's some irrational explanation.
