Daniel Harris's Wall

Gary Percesepe – Feb 16, 2018

Hello, Daniel. Thanks for reading and commenting on my work--an honor to have you here at Fictionaut.

Ray Nessly – Mar 09, 2017

Thank you for commenting on "Digging a Hole to the China Sea". It's part of a collection of 'Nostrum Brothers' stories I'm putting together. They vary on the fiction/CNF scale; this one is pretty much "true."
I've added you to my contacts so that I can follow your posts as well as your comments on other stories.

Kitty Boots – Jul 11, 2016


Thank you for the comments on my 2 poems.

Barry Friesen – May 25, 2016

Ha! Holding your breath, indeed! Thanks for taking the time to read "Wet Work" and comment as well. I appreciate it, Dan!

Dianne McKnight-Warren – May 18, 2016

Great suggestion on Claffey piece.

Ellie Lee – Apr 09, 2016

Thank you so much, Daniel, for taking the trouble to read my poem. I'm new here and very much looking forward to reading your writing.

Tim Young – Jun 17, 2015

Daniel,I wanted to say thanks again for your choice of 'Blues Repeat' for your Editor's Eye contribution. So glad we are here!

Ann Bogle – Jun 13, 2015

FYI, just caught this on Ron Silliman's page on Facebook, Dan: http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/06/07/up-for-auction-lucian-freuds-letters-to-a-poet/?emc=edit_bk_20150612&nl=books&nlid=81304&ref=booksupdate

Myra King – May 19, 2015

Love your Mocking Bird piece, Daniel - sublime! Will read more of your work when I have time.*

Larry Strattner – Apr 01, 2015

Thanks for your comment on Scientific Submittal Method. Appreciated.
I have reviewed your listings of various composers, artists and writers and found myself wanting

Carl Santoro – Aug 30, 2014

Daniel, thank you for visiting and commenting on "You Should Change at Jamaica". It really helps.
I agree. I struggled with extending the story to include the myriad of possibilities inherent in such a mystical situation. I felt if I left more to the imagination, what with tying in the title to the cryptic note and all, that a reader might come up with some additional musings my mind would not. I could so easily take it over the top and muck it up as I have done before. But, yes, my hands hovered over these plastic keys for several dramatic, thought-filled moments. I hope it isn't too much of a let down like you would experience at a grade-B horror film where you never see the whole monster, only some cheap effects. I hate that. No pay off in the end. Am I ranting? I rant - therefore I am. Any whooo, thanks. That was exactly my sentiment when I ended it!

David Ackley – May 14, 2014

Thanks Daniel for taking the time to read and comment on "Stealth," what you said was the main object of writing it.

Daniel Harris – Jan 08, 2014

Thanks Larry. I'm going as fast as I can and still write music and paint pictures.

Larry Strattner – Jan 06, 2014

Jesus, Daniel, I just looked here. You're an old guy. Keep writing, and be quick about it!

Javed Hayat – Oct 01, 2013

Hello Daniel. Thank you for your comment and the fav on A Distant Mystery. Appreciated it.

Hi, Daniel. Thanks for reading 'Sagacious Abridgment.' I appreciate your insightful comment.

Matthew Robinson – Aug 06, 2012

Appreciate the compliment on "The Second Sun," Daniel. As for the science: original research. ;)

Gloria Garfunkel – Aug 04, 2012

dear Daniel, thank you very much for commenting on “arachnophobia”. I appreciate it very much.

Thank you for your funny comment on Spaghetti Woman. Any food hanging from beards is funny.

Gloria Garfunkel – Aug 01, 2012

Thank you for your long comment on Reading at the Table and I left you a long one back there. I enjoyed your story Similarities as well.

Ann Bogle – Aug 01, 2012

Dan, thanks for your comment on "Twedes." Insular struck me. My family (not meaning my grandmother's original family) is like a bicycle wheel and we are its spokes, non-intersecting neighbors across coasts, threaded to EMC2 hub.

Gloria Garfunkel – Jul 22, 2012

I'm here again, to thank you for your fine comment on Birds of Prayer. I left a lengthy response there.

Gloria Garfunkel – Jul 21, 2012

I responded with a lengthy note on my wall to your lengthy note on my wall. There are myriad places to post and it's often confusing what's the best place. That was a great comment.

Gloria Garfunkel – Jul 16, 2012

Thank you for your message about Pig Girl and for the fave. I am noticing that you, like me, are new to Fictionaut. It's been an amazing experience and I've only been here two days. Welcome!

Ann Bogle – Jun 17, 2012
