    Hello All! Glad to finally be posting on hubpages. I took the plunge as part of a New Year's resolution to expose my writings to a larger audience. Please read my first HUB titled Two Lights in the Darkness and let me know what you think. All opinions welcome. Thanks for looking!!!

      Hello, Brian! Welcome to HP! I just read your hub and left a comment! I loved it. I just thought about this and I don't know if it was intentional or not, but your hub seemed to be about the beginning of the universe. This is your beginning at HP and it's getting to be the start of the new year. If this was intentional, then that is just awesome! LOL! Maybe I'm just overthinking it...*grins*

    Hi All! I'm a newbie too. I've been "working" on a series of short stories for years now. I hope I can improve my writing while getting some feedback from others as well. Please check out my first HUB and feel free to leave a comment if you feel so inclined. I'll do the same for you too! Lets keep the ball rolling and I wish you all success in your literary endeavors.

      Hi and welcome to HubPages! I read your hub and it was interesting. However, the one thing that almost caused me to turn around and go back was the captial letters in your subtitle. Part of it was capitalized, just like the headings for chapter 1 and two. Quite frankly, the capitalized letters drove me nuts. I wasn't sure if you did that intentionally or not (not accusing you here). The story itself was fine, don't get me wrong. Keep on writing those hubs! Happy hubbing!

        Thanks writinglover! Yeah....I kind of did the cAPs ThINg on purpose. After I looked at it, I could see how it could be a bit distracting. Thanks for the input, much appreciated! Please follow me, so you can receive an update when I add more.
