And thank you for teaching us something new. I do not know much, mostly nothing actually, about Chinese idioms, but this is a nice start.

Hello my Friend, my mind is swirling to ease your problem/s, and in regard to your writer block. I remembered the saying – ”keep it simple”. This is the way that I see it (understand) You understand the principle of Chi, it flows, it can not be forced. I thought, when I was about to write, all the ideas would be there before I put pen to paper, that everything I needed would be ready at hand. So I waited, and waited, no story, no ideas. It was then that I realized that while I was thinking nothing was getting done, so what was the simplest thing to do? Just write! Write from the heart, write what I felt, and an amazing thing happened Culture Dragon, the voice that keeps interfering is silenced, different thoughts emerge, ideas too, thing begin to flow, you are at the core of your self. Life is simple. I smile to myself when I remember this….This world is an amazing place…….it is only people who complicate it! Just write how you feel, what you feel, how you see life around you, just write, does it have to make sense, no, so long as it makes… Read more »

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
