Another one of those

I actually remember thinking “Oh, God! It’s going to be one of those again.” I’d say, from that, that I knew it was a dream. I don’t remember much of...

thornwood, this is great.  I can't claim to have been where you have, but there are things that gripped me that I know.   Written in your own voice.  Do you know how valuable that is?  I'm not talking exploitation, I'm talking sharing and...

I always struggle with that

Posted on Thu, 18 Sep 2014

I always struggle with that link. I don't know. I'm so far behind in terms of currency / who's making the writing waves. The whole space thing was chauvinism in a way, but that didn't stop it turning my head as a kid. Still does. Romance,...

Very timely for me, Ewan.

Posted on Thu, 18 Sep 2014

Very timely for me, Ewan. Reading Solzhenitzyn, looking at a friend's photo from a student exchange in Leningrad in 81 (I never realised such things even happened then) and reminiscing our own visit a couple of years back. I like the wistfulness...

Hi Philip. What a complex

Posted on Thu, 21 Aug 2014

Hi Philip. What a complex and detailed account. I felt like the story could be expanded between the ladies leaving and the end of the shift. Potential.
I've spent time over a good few years visiting these places and your description of...

Hi Nolan. Great to hear from

Posted on Fri, 11 Jul 2014

Hi Nolan. Great to hear from you, too. I thought this piece was done and dusted. Dead in the water. Invigorating to read the comments from you and Shannan. Often seems a waste of time writing this stuff. Will probably end up writing more because...

Lovely thought. I do this

Posted on Fri, 11 Jul 2014

Lovely thought. I do this every morning in the shower. To what, I don't know - but for the people who need it, just in case. Nice post.
