    Why do you write?

    I write like my hand is on fire, like my life may end at any moment, like there is nothing better I might be doing--because I love it just that much.

    What fuels my creativity is reading the creative work of others that spreads my awe and delight at their inventions like wildfire across my brain.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Calvino, Borges, Carson, Woolf, St. Vincent Millay, Tennyson, Moore, Munro, Boyle, Shephard, Williams (T), James, Orwell, etc.

    j. lin – Aug 02, 2009

    hiii heather!!!! how is everything? yes, i know, i realized you hollered three years later, haha.

    Tara – Jun 30, 2009

    No prob! I actually felt bad writing anything remotely 'negative' because everyone else's comments were so happy...he he. I really love the feel of that story. I just thought after awhile it seemed to be going back to the same kind of thing. That's all. But I've been thinking so singly on 1000 words or less stories that ALL of my longer stories seem in need of a shave. :-)

    Sophia Lasair – May 22, 2009

    Backatcha beauty! Great reads as always. -_-

    Ethel Rohan – May 14, 2009

    You are so welcome, Heather, a pleasure.

    All best,

    Carol Novack – Apr 15, 2009

    Hi Heather! Thanks for your kind comments re Crazy Broad. I'm heading for L.A. tomorrow and have no time to devote to providing feedback on stories on this site till... maybe May. But I'll be back, and I hope as helpful as our mutual friend, James Robison.

    Lauren Becker – Mar 27, 2009

    Andrea DeAngelis – Mar 27, 2009

    Lauren Becker – Mar 26, 2009

    thanks for the nice comment on my story and for all the good advice. you are a fabulous writer and reader, and will always have a fan in me!

    James Robison – Mar 22, 2009

    Thank you for your comment and I'm glad you tagged the fact that in a story without drama there had to be a kind of argument between high diction and low diction and between the locutionary and perlocutionary-- at least to the degree that I understand those terms.

    Stephen Stark – Mar 15, 2009

    Thanks for the note. I'm a fellow Hollins grad, although in 1984 it was still Hollins College.

    Lady Fowler! So glad to be here with you, another sand box; this one full of clean white sand (though now that the gang is here it will soon have lolipop wrappers, cigarette butts and broken glass from the bottle of JD that Verless and I were pulling off). I'm happy to have a new way to see your work.

    Richard Cooper – Mar 04, 2009
