    Why do you write?

    I love the production of work. I love that there is always room for improvement.

    Timothy, I couldn't have written my ghostly spirit vampire story without you!

    Thanks for your great comments, Tim! Maybe sometime I'll get up to Cambridge sometime to go to your series...

    Hi Tim,
    I love your story in jmww, the flash issue: How to Give Dating Advice as a State Social Worker. WOW! Fantastic read. Made me want to devour all of your writing! Thanks.

    Hello, Timothy!

    Gary Moshimer – Sep 30, 2009

    Hey Tim, thanks so much for reading, and taking the time to comment. I'm actually in the middle of a reworking of this, taking all the input to heart. Like those beer kegs.

    hey Tim!

    Tara – Jul 27, 2009

    You should try SmokeLong!

    Brett Fogarty – Jul 22, 2009

    Hey Tim, thanks for the comment. It's nice to meet you!

    Tara – Jul 21, 2009

    Hmmm...did you ever get any comments back about why people aren't taking it? How long ago did you write it? The longest gap I've ever had is 8 years between writing a story and it being accepted somewhere, so you know, it's all about luck and that. Although, I must say, I had to read it a few times b/c I wasn't sure if it was an actual explosion or a 'fight' explosion. But I also kind of like that ambiguity in a story---I hate when people just outright 'tell' everything. I'm being no help here.

    Tara – Jul 21, 2009

    Hey! Thanks for your comment. Love "What we did after the explosion." Look forward to reading more of your stuff.

    Rachel Yoder – Apr 22, 2009

    Thanks, Tim!

    William Walsh – Jan 14, 2009

    Hey, Tim...WYou're everywhere...

    Jeanne Holtzman – Jan 04, 2009

    I live in Franklin. Just north of the RI Border. Last stop on the commuter rail about an hour from South Station. Hope to get up to Dire Literary Series sometime! Is it both poetry and prose?

    Jeanne Holtzman – Jan 04, 2009

    Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on my story, Tim.

    Sam Ruddick – Jan 04, 2009

    Hey I just checked out WHL and you're right Chekhov is the bomb!

    Sam Ruddick – Jan 03, 2009

    haven't met, ahven't been to reading series. new to boston, not that familiar. we could meet, though. would like to meet more local writers. one does like to socialize with one's own, discuss the lit we read, not to mention our own work. when is next reading? maybe my wife (a poet and essayist - deja earley - published in a few pretty good magazines) and i will try to come.

    Sam Ruddick – Jan 03, 2009

    hey - wow - i didn't realize you were in cambridge. i'm in brighton!

    Corey Zeller – Nov 10, 2008


    Thanks for the kind words. I really liked your piece "The Best Interest of the Child" as well.

    Daniel Crocker – Nov 09, 2008
