    Echo, I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I'm in "Classic Author" status simply because I haven't had the time or life-space to do any more writing yet, so it didn't make sense to keep me in Signature Authors...but I have about 15 other stories rolling around in my head that I'd like to put out there some time, to say nothing of the 4 that are out there at different places on the Internet in partial stages of completion. So I hope do something before too long to accommodate your wish for more.
  2. Fair enough, Briansboy. I appreciate that you liked what you did, and I understand why you disliked what (and who!) you did. Andy IS privileged, smug, entitled, and gloating. It's over-compensation to some degree, as his protracted doubts and agonies illustrate, but that's not an excuse. I can only plead that Andy was in the process of growing up in the narrative and that he's grown more still. And that even though he is all those negative things, he also loves deeply and is loyal to a fault. 😉 The ending ended the way it did because there aren't very many roadmaps for bisexual polyamory,
  3. Happy Birthday Adam!

  7. Yeah, it's my biggest enemy too. The reason I don't write as much as I do is that I won't continue to sit down and work with it if I don't feel I'm In the Zone. If it feels second-rate as it comes off my fingers, I'm outta there and off doing something else. And I know that This Is Not Good. So I'm trying to change... But I hate it when I write crap.
  8. I had writer's block once when I was writing Crosscurrents, and it wasn't because of "story" issues; I knew the plot like the back of my hand. It's that there was no blood going to the writing; it was cadaverous. A writer friend of mine said, "Put it away. Write something else. Anything else. Another story, I mean. Keep it short, start a long one; just write something else!" I did. I started Brushfire (Which, uh, I've not picked up with again until this week.). And I looked at the writing and saw that it had energy. I also saw that the writing was better than my writing on Crosscurrent
  9. I had an English teacher in high school who'd draw a red line at her first sight of a "very." She'd refuse to read anything below the line, and she'd give the paper an F. That cured me of "very." Rules are made to be broken, and they're subjective, and there's (surely??) a reason "very" is in the language. But I don't have any use for it, and I haven't missed it.
  10. Yep. I'm picking up my writing again after a long, long halt. And I'll never commit a write-and-post crime against my readers again. I am Perp #1 in this regard, and I'm determined to Change My Ways. It's my goal never to have readers wait more than a week or two from now on.
  11. Starting to write again. I mean it this time!

      No, really?? That would be so awesome. You must have come up with some good ideas. You know that your stuff moves me, and I'm always hoping for more.

  12. Back to the grind. If you've never been to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, I recommend it.

  13. Taking some vacation starting Wednesday. Be back August 12 or so.

      Welcome back! It's good to have you back in town, and read your comments. You usually have meaningful stuff to say.

  14. Happy Birthday, James, and thanks for your ongoing presence here!
