Jo,love your dog! Is that an Aussie Shepherd? thanks for your kind comments on the Backpack bit!
Hey, Jo! Thanks for the ass-kicking assessment over at my "Bumper Repair" story.
Belated thanks for the comment on Humpty Dumpty 2011, Jo. Glad you had fun!
Thanks for reading and commenting on "For Those Who Asked Why", Joe. I don't know what led you to it today; I posted it many months ago. It's a page out of my journal, and real life.
I'll provide the wine. Thanks for reading! And happy for the "ouch" It's supposed to deliver a punch after all :)
Hi Jo! Thanks for stopping by and reading "Punk" and your nice comments! Greatly appreciated!
Hello, Jo. Thanks much for the read and comment on "Lockdown." I'm still tinkering with it, so it's doubly appreciated.
Thanks for the suggestion! It's on my list....
Hey, Jo, if you like the Thomas King quote, check out the book, The Truth About Stories. One of my all-time non-fiction faves!
Jo- I just read two of your stories and all I can say is, WOW. So glad to connect here. And by the way, DO stop in at 52|250 if you can. We've still got 6 months to go. Would love to see you there.
Hey Jo - thanks for finding Love, Story. Appreciate the comment, and looking forward to getting back here to read your stories too. Later this week...
Thanks for the comment on Rats, Jo. I appreciate the read!
Thanks for the very kind words on 4P28, Jo. I'm so glad you enjoyed the story.
Hi Jo - Thanks so much for your comments and feedback on "I don't have a gun" - they are much appreciated :)
Thanks for reading Making it Right, Jo. Didn't mean to kill ya. Oh wait. I did.
Jo - thank you for your nice words about my story title a few weeks back! Best, Meg
Thank you Jo for your comment on my story "Human Things". Appreciate it.
Thanks, Jo, for reading and commenting on "The Transportation of Hens."
Jo, Thanks for picking up the word "really". It all hinges on that. I really appreciate the read.
thanks Jo for the comments on Fireflies...great to have that story read...1st one i put up last Fall!
julie, yes! same here. i've been thinking hard about this ever since a good writer named tony earley criticized one of my heroes, cormac mccarthy. earley said (approxmately) i don't choose to write worlds where evil is the dominant force, and i don't know why i'd choose to read them, either.
don't laugh, but the comment floored me. i had never thought before about the fact that i am responsible for the underlying truths of the universes i create, just as i'm responsible for my character's hair color, and that fictional truths can be better and more beautiful than those i see in the world around me.
Jo - thank you for your comment on 'Bee King' - it went right to the central concern I have with my writing.
Thanks Robert and Jane!
Hi Jo-Looking forward to some writing.
Welcome to Fictionaut, nice picture! Hope you publish a story soon.
