Author portrait May 2012 by Susan Murtaugh, great artist, and friend.
I have tried to create, build or design something every day of my life. I don't know what fuels this, but the fuel has to be burned.
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.
Thank you for the comments on my 2 poems.
Ha! Holding your breath, indeed! Thanks for taking the time to read "Wet Work" and comment as well. I appreciate it, Dan!
Great suggestion on Claffey piece.
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.
Daniel,I wanted to say thanks again for your choice of 'Blues Repeat' for your Editor's Eye contribution. So glad we are here!
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
Love your Mocking Bird piece, Daniel - sublime! Will read more of your work when I have time.*
Thanks for your comment on Scientific Submittal Method. Appreciated.
I have reviewed your listings of various composers, artists and writers and found myself wanting
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!
Thanks Daniel for taking the time to read and comment on "Stealth," what you said was the main object of writing it.
Thanks Larry. I'm going as fast as I can and still write music and paint pictures.
Jesus, Daniel, I just looked here. You're an old guy. Keep writing, and be quick about it!
Hello Daniel. Thank you for your comment and the fav on A Distant Mystery. Appreciated it.
Thanks for sharing your impressions on Strangers on a Train. I look forward to checking out some of your work!
Thanks for the kind words about "3 Bedrooms...",Dan, and thanks for the star! I look forward to reading your work.
Thanks for your Werewolf enthusiasm.
Thanks so much for your enthusiastic comment on Psychotherapy, God and Me.
Thanks Daniel for that wonderful foodie comment on Birds of Prayer.
Thanks for the read and comment of Maalox.
Hi, Daniel. Thanks for reading 'Sagacious Abridgment.' I appreciate your insightful comment.
Appreciate the compliment on "The Second Sun," Daniel. As for the science: original research. ;)
Thanks so much Daniel for your thoughtful and profound comment on Fairy Tale in Dacahu.
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.
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.
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.
I'm here again, to thank you for your fine comment on Birds of Prayer. I left a lengthy response there.
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.
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!
Welcome to Fictionaut, Dan. I look forward to reading more of your stories.
