    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.

    Jane Hammons – Mar 06, 2011

    I'll provide the wine. Thanks for reading! And happy for the "ouch" It's supposed to deliver a punch after all :)

    Hello, Jo. Thanks much for the read and comment on "Lockdown." I'm still tinkering with it, so it's doubly appreciated.

    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, Thanks for picking up the word "really". It all hinges on that. I really appreciate the read.

    Doug Bond – Jun 15, 2010

    thanks Jo for the comments on Fireflies...great to have that story read...1st one i put up last Fall!

    Jo Deurbrouck – Jun 13, 2010

    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.

    Julie Innis – Jun 13, 2010

    Jo - thank you for your comment on 'Bee King' - it went right to the central concern I have with my writing.
