i want to get my last (first) book revised and republished... thanks for reading the brain thing xx big luv
Thank you Georgeous! Such a cool comment. XXX
Thanks, Susan, and they tell me it will be out as an e-book in a few weeks.
George thanks so much for what you wrote on my poem "holding" and Big Congrats on your book contract!!
George, I saw a nice comment from you on my poem Dark Country, from way back when.. sorry I didn't respond sooner, but sometimes F'naut doesn't send them over or they get spammed or something..
George, congrats on Heavy Lifting, its a great story!
"Purple Micro Godot Dot." HA! The whole story would be things like, "Why, can't you see that it's purple?" "Of course it is there, I just said as much."
But I like your better informed ideas much better.
Ok, Last one, (well, not really, it's never the last one, but I'm being kind) The little town called Gotown where the streets are in disrepair because everyone is waiting for GoDOT to came fix the roads. Peace!
Hey George, how about, "The Return of Godot." Or "Godot Returns" or EVEN BETTER (OMG, I should be writing this shit down), "The Second Coming of Godot."
I think Godot, the inside joke, would be a great play.
Thanks, George, for the help with "Augustinian Prayer Sonnet." Yes, Jean Paul is my preference too. How in the hell is other people did I screw that spelling up? Thanks for the close reading.
Love "never-ending rhyme"--another kind of hell, I suppose.
Thanks for the comment on Upstream, George. That was my first and it was such fun to write. But tough to hit an exact word count like that!
George, thanks for your read of "wait"
You really caught the communication overload angst of it.
Thanks G. I'm in a bad mood right now, so I'll leave it at that + hugs x
Thanks, George, for your comments on "The Death of Sherwood Anderson." I like your edit and I'll make that change.
Thanks, George, and some day we'll need to hve a long chat about Infinite Jest. Meantime, thanks.
George, this oil makes for such sharp edges, right? Thank you so much for reading!
& thanks for the Georgeous fav
Yep, every now and then a happy ending is a good thing. Thanks for your comment on Bedtime Story!
I’m very happy you like the writing. I have another piece up now, called Star Anise, but it is much longer than the others. I’m off now to read Hotel Chelsea – Scene 2!
George, thanks so much for your excellent comments on After Dinner, etc. I laughed out loud. The stories are each distinct but they relate to each other in different ways, depending on how you read them. I enjoyed your interpretation, especially of “Change it!” :)
Hi George. Thanks for the kind comments about "A New Tattoo." I better get busy reading some your stories. Congratulations on your upcoming novel. Very exciting.
George, Thanks for your generous note. I see I have a lot of catching up on your work to do, but look forward to dipping in!
George, thanks much for reading and expressing your enjoyment over my story Summer in the City. It was fun to write
Thanks, George, for reading Unoriginal Sin. I appreciate your comment.
thanks, George, for your read and comment on New World. I appreciate the enthusiasm, even as I contemplate how to rework it altogether! Looking forward to reading some of your stories, battery dying in a Hong Kong airport just now; will come back here in another day or so... Nice meeting you here, and thank you.
My god George, I'm working away on my own projects, and I can't keep up with Hotel Chelsea and all the intercuts, and now the Nanette pieces. There seems to be a new one daily. Very impressive, you are on a roll my friend, and I promise I will read all!
Thanks for the comments on "NEVER Drunk, ALWAYS Disorderly" -- that's very perceptive about NYC cops' humor. (MOST of them, MUCH of the time, anyway....)
Perfect, I appreciate the suggestions! My plan is to get to all of them eventually. But for now, I’m off to The Naked Mountain!
Well that just means the whole world to me. Thank you for that. Someone once told me to keep a smile file, you know, of the feedback you receive that sustains you. I never did make one but if I had one I would put your comment there. I’d love to read something of yours today. Do you have any suggestions as to where to start, or a favorite piece?
Hi George. Thank you so much for your encouraging words, and for taking the time to leave them. Can’t wait to check out your work.
George, a question: are parts of Hotel Chelsea Scene 4 and 5, also in the intercuts?
George! Hi. I wanted to thank you for your feedback on "Warning: Mud Makes Me Horny." I am delighted it's getting read, and over the moon that folks are providing constructive feedback! Thank you so much~
Thanks George, it's in a crime story actually! Been working on the ms with Beate critiquing. She has been wonderfu!
I haven't been on fictionaut for awhile as I'm preparing for my book launch of short stories, City Paddock, I'm hoping to raise lots for the Light Horse.
George, I have much of your Hotel Chelsea, and the intercuts to catch up on, and they are on my reading radar!
Thanks very much for your generous comments for "Cousin"; I really do appreciate them.
George--great minds think alike. Quixotic chivalry is dead, so it falls to the writers to revive it. Thanks for the suggestion. I may expand it a bit.
Hello, George. Thank you for the commentary on my latest story. I'm looking forward to reading your work. All best, Isabell
Thank you for reading Tahitian Vanilla, George. I'm glad it's strange and funny. I probably tried to make it serious, but these days things are becoming funny no matter what i do. so I am just going to ride that...
Thanks for the invite, Georgie!
Snake is probably a "good" source of protein, too....
Thanks for reading "Northeast of Eden".
Thank you for the explanation: in no world, at no time, would I ever have figured out what MDF stands for!
Thank you so much for your wonderful words about CCTV for Fictionaut Fave. I am really honored that you chose to write about my work. And I greatly appreciate both the read and the time you took to write about my piece. Thank you, thank you! What a wonderful way to start the week!
Thanks for your kind words for my story "Something About Ireland" -- I appreciate it.
Thanks for reading and commenting on "Truman Compote" George.
Thanks for comment on Lagging. I think you're probably a better pool player than me, so you'll have to spot me a couple balls if we ever play.
I am printing out Hotel Chelsea, parts 3, 4, and 5! Will read!
George - thanks for the comments on the imagery on 'I Came', appreciate the read.
Thanks for reading and enjoying Beard-Men..I completely understand the love/hate with facial hair!
Thanks so much for reading my story 'Checkboxes'. It means a lot to me. Looking forward to reading your work here.
Thank you for reading and kindly encouraging "loose threads". I really appreciated your thoughts on it.
Thanks, George, for your comment on my alzheimer's story. First sentence, last paragraph: so important, and so hard to get just right.
Linked stories set in NY, of course, can be very interesting. I guess I wonder if it's the same main character throughout, or different narrators, or what ties them thematically together besides the NY setting? You've got a great energy in the Hotel Chelsea pieces, and I'm not sure whether it's the Hotel Chelsea setting or whatever is going on in the narrator's life that brought him to NY, in that state, etc...
Thanks for favoriting "Searching for the Word," George. Glad you liked it so much!
Oh, no hurry - just wanted to make you aware of them ... Hotel Chelsea being in NY and all, and the subject matter. Not to rush you, & thanks for printing!
I have just printed out Hotel Chelsea, parts 1 and 2. Am a bit behind these last few days, but I promise I will read!
I live in NY. I have doormen. They just gave it to me!
Just got Goolihue in the mail! Love the cover, and thank you! Am eager to dive in.
The Naked Mountain - so very funny, my friend!
George, all the best on your new book!
Thank you kindly for your comments, and congratulations on the novel.
Hi George - Thanks so much for your nice comments on "Fleet Week"!
Thanks, George, glad you liked it - I don't think the world is ready for genetically modified dogs.
You're welcome, Cherise. Good stuff!
And for reading The First Date Questionnaire -- fine idea you had about my compiling a list of such questionnaires. I will have to think!
And for your great comments on CCTV. Yes, just a first draft, and you're right about the beginning... haven't gone back to it in a while, but eventually I will really develop it.
Thanks for reading and commenting and for the favs!
Thank you for reading The Shloshim Period and An Italian Lunch. I greatly appreciate it, along with your comments!
Good to meet you here, George LaCas - and we share a fondness for all the same writers.
Thanks for the kind words on my story, George :) I love Algae Freuden & look forward to reading more of your work.
thank you for your kind words about "A Salty, Slutty Bird"
Looking forward to reading your stories here!
