Lovely and sparse. Well

Posted on Tue, 03 Jul 2018

Lovely and sparse. Well thought-out, Elsie.

A real invitation to think about what's going on in the spaces between the lines.

What a lovely piece, Gayle. I

Posted on Mon, 25 Jun 2018

What a lovely piece, Gayle. I'm so glad you posted it. Our cat had two homes. We only found out in his latter years. He'd often wait a whole evening outside the pub at the end of the street for my brother, my dad and I to come out and make little...

Thanks Di_Hard. Writers.

Posted on Sat, 07 Apr 2018

Thanks Di_Hard. Writers. Critics. Readers. All you can do is get on with the job and see what comes. You should have seen how many times I had to rethread the needle. I turned up for my Eng Lit exam on the wrong day, about 40 years ago. I've been...

Thanks everyone. I'm always

Posted on Thu, 06 Jul 2017

Thanks everyone. I'm always amazed and very grateful when someone says something nice about something that I can't seem to help doing.

Maybe something to share: I've recently written three pieces / poetry (?) that readers and writers on...

Posted on Sun, 25 Jun 2017

Hi fictiontoescape. I've been having a read through some of your posts. It's an epic story and your prose has the feel of having been written by a natural storyteller.
I have a couple of thoughts if you'd like them.

It follows the Block School

Posted on Thu, 21 May 2015

It follows the Block School of repetitive poetry, Philip. Founded on Temple Meads station at around 23:30 last night. I'm hoping the Culture Secretary will request that a plaque be installed.

The link between the tender

Posted on Tue, 03 Mar 2015

The link between the tender realism of your description of the baby and that of your reverie are the key for me. A beautifully captured moment alone with the moon.

Thanks ice rivers. I'll try.

Posted on Thu, 26 Jul 2018

Thanks ice rivers. I'll try.

I think an action moment is a good place to start with a non-linear telling. The crash. Then people are ready to know the whys and wherefores. The trick is keeping the glued from thereon. Sometimes we get too...

Yes. The quote's his. Ok.

Posted on Wed, 25 Jul 2018

Yes. The quote's his. Ok. Will do. I commented on part 4, I think, about the drafts and maybe looking at getting them more polished ahead of posting them. You'll pick up more readers and feedback.

Hi ice rivers. Contractions

Posted on Fri, 27 Jul 2018

Hi ice rivers. Contractions are just where we reduce (usually auxiliary verbs) from "I would" to "I'd" etc. She is - she's.
