Thanks, Barry, for your comments on Aerospace. White space. Nice when I can load it up and it works.
Barry, thank you! Someday I'll tell you about the time Alice Munro made me dinner :)
Thank you for your comment on Him and his father. I really appreciated your thoughts.
Thanks for the star and the kind words about "The High Line, NYC." "Wordsmith-Lady" made my day.
Thanks so much for your comment on Mother's Day. It still makes me laugh. My comment notifications are very delayed.
Barry, thanks for reading and commenting on "Honor Grade." There is nothing nicer to say than to be compared to Chekhov. It made me proud.
Hi Barry! Thank you for taking the time to read so many of my stories. Your comments are so appreciated. Good to "meet" you on here.
Sure. I'd be flattered.
Thanks Barry for enjoying y story "Shower". I haven't haqd access to a computer and then the hurrication thing we all went on here in LA. My protagonist James continues his exploits in series of stories I'm working on and will soon finish. "I walk with the Absurd" published in 3:AM too and a few more yet to be published, but hopefully will be in a collection soon. Thanks again Barry and I look forward to reading your work as well.
Hi Barry, thank you so much for your comment and suggestion on Voices From a Playground, as well as the fave. Much appreciated! Cheers.
Thanks for sharing your response to Stuck Shut. I love the questions it provoked in you. And I'm delighted by the mention of Atwood in a discussion of something I wrote!
Barry, good to see you surface in such splendor--your splendid story, that is. Thanks for the pleasant words regarding "under the skin."
Berry, Thank you for your most kind comments.
Thanks, Barry, for the wonderful comment on "Phlegmatic."
Hi, Barry! Thank you for reading and commenting on "The Pain Taster" and "Sentimental Me." I really appreciate the encouragement.
Barry - thanks for the great words on Paper House. Isn't that what we try to achieve as writers? To evoke any memory, emotion. Good to know this one did some of that for you.
Thank you for the comment on 'This Story' - much appreciated. Might try voice-recording it at some point.
Hi Barry. Thanks so much for your wonderful comment on my story Losing Found Things. Has to be the best comment I've ever seen. Really, thank you so much. It means a lot to me.
Thanks for the extensive and lavish comment on "
Tiger Milk. Barry. Great to hear from you --and with new work yet. Yours was some story!
Barry, thanks so much for your thoughtful comments on "A Matter of the Heart." That was quite a boost. I'm looking forward to reading your work. ...and sorry about the Canucks.
BArry, Erin KElly an editor for Flash Fiction Chronicles is trying to track you down to interview you for "Hat Trick." Could you get in touch with me? Gay Degani firstname.lastname@example.org thanks!
Thank you very much for the thoughtful comment on 'Mulch.'
I'm not entirely convinced a lot of people in general don't float about, more in their voices than their bodies. (But I entirely take your point on the need to ground characters - and agree. So thanks again.)
Ah, Barry, thank you for the kind words about "A Backpack of Anger". And the answer is yes, thought about it, worked on it for eight year with much help from someone who is now a dear friend and continue to do so through my writing. Thanks for asking. Shows you are a caring person. . . .Mar
Barry - thank you so much for your kind words about "Proposal"! really means a lot!
Thank you, Barry, for your kind remarks on fly and ash. Very much appreciated and a good Sunday to you. - Q
Thanks once again, Barry for the read and perceptive comment on " Confessions..." If you don't post something once a week or more frequently here you can begin to feel like a bit of a back number, so it was nice to be--at least momentarily--rescued from oblivion.
"Period Piece" was a bit of a slog, but ultimately worth every second( three, counting the two when I missed it completely.) Plagiarism Lawsuits definitely the way to go, a kind of reverse class action, where you sue absolutely everyone. OOps, another buck for Barry won't make that mistake again
Thanks for the kind "ostranenie" remark...When I considered where this came from ( Tolstoi's hat-clad horse) it's one of the best things that's ever been said about anything I've
Thanks, Barry. Loved "Period Piece." Deep, possibly the apotheosis that Beckett was working towards at the end.
"And the rest is silence."
thank you for your kind comment on "le sucre brun", barry. much appreciated.
Thanks for your feedback on "Flush"! I appreciate you taking the time to read it.
Thank you for the kind reflections on "Fifth of July." I appreciate you taking the time. Pleased to make your (virtual) acquaintance here.
Hey, Barry, thanks for the kind (and metaphorically apt) words about my story. You may be onto something about my characters wandering around in different dimensions--have to look into that.
Thanks Barry, for your nice comments :-) lots of memories sprang to mind as I was writing it, too.
Thanks, Barry, for your very generous and kind comments on "Jelly Doughnuts".
Thanks for the kind words about "I Like it This Way." I'm glad you like the ending.
Hi Barry, and thank you for your comments on my story! Glad you liked it.
Thanks so much for your generous comments, Barry!
You're welcome re: your Feb 27 story. Great story!
Are we supposed to respond to wall posts? If so, I've been very rude. I'm quite a newbie around here and trying hard to learn the ropes.
Hi Barry - I really appreciate you comments on my story, A Life Twice Told. I'm glad you liked it.
Thank you! what lovely remarks. made my day--
Barry-thanks for the comments on Read Me. A word now and again is good for the soul. Appreciate it.
Barry, I have no right to get a comment more inspiring than the one you left on Good Kids, Bad Endings. I love the "lurks behind the scratches in the mirror" - so good. Having two children has made me NEED to write, otherwise I'd be even more nuts than I am. Thanks again and congrats on Flashquake! D
Barry, thanx for your comments, and youre very right in your assessment of my piece. Part of being a parent is admitting how difficult it is and how we have moments of yearning for our freedom, while trying to see the tough moments in the most positive light. So althought it seems contradictory, being a parent Is just that! Thanx so much for your comments. I appreciate it..
Barry, I appreciate the thumbs up for my micros. Thanks.
Barry, thanks for reading and commenting on my story, “Blue Cotton Candy”!
hey barry, thank you for your great comment on "the last story". i'm going back to my coma now. cheers!
thanx barry for such kind words on my story
