"I'm as cheesy as a roller rink" and still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.
Work, published and forthcoming, appears in >Kill Author, Metazen, PANK, Referential Magazine, The Legendary, The Shine Journal, FlashFire500, Emerald Tales, PicFic & Soundzine. A prose piece about my grandmother will be published this year in the From the Porch Swing anthology and my PicFic pieces will be in their anthology published by Folded Word.
Now I write in pictures:
A crazy cast of whimsical characters bumbling around in my head. Right now my favorite tools are my Moleskine 5x8 sketchbook, #2 pencil, old-school pink rubber and a Sharpie pen.
Austen, Pyncho, Eco, Irving, Poe & Roach (Mary)
Thank you for reading and commenting on my “Alice in Wonderland Syndrome” story!
So pleased you loved Red Fox Rampant and that your daughter did too! :-)
Glad you liked "Dis-Ease." Thanks for commenting on it.
Thanks J, it was a riot writing Purple Patch. I had no idea what was going to happen myself. GM dogs not a good thing.
I empathise with your empathy with birds and pity their problems with buildings. For evidence of this, see the last sentence in my piece 'the phallicism of skyscrapers'.
Hi Johnsienoel! Thanks for reading Elephant, and your wonderful comments. Thanks for liking the raw. Raw is what we need sometimes, I guess. So good to meet you here!
thanks so much for your kind note on my short. my computer has been acting out for 24 hours but as soon as she's back to her usual self i look forward to catching up on your work.
Thanks Johnsienoel, for your comments on Beatnik Blonde. I had actually submitted it to Pedestal in some version. Seemed like a good place for it . . . oh well
Thank you for your kind comments on my poem, From the Kitchen Of my Childhood. : -)
yabba yabba yabba yAWP1 Thank you!
Thanks for stopping by my wall, Johnsienoel. Yes, it does seem like they listen. When I first went into these woods, they of course scattered like roaches when the lights turned on (except the geese, they rarely give ground). Now, its almost as if they are offended if I dont call hello or give a wave. And that's just over a month's time. For all of our scatterings in life as artists, familiarity DOES breed comfort, which is not a bad thing.
thank you so so much for your lovely words about my parrot story!
The direct language is one feature in the story. And that works. I like the way the dialogue moves in the piece. Good form. And especially like the parenthetical asides. The layers are there. It's an impacting read. I like it, Jennifer - and obviously Legendary did.
Yes I agree: you certainly do deserve to be cherished and adored with unconditional love.Good luck with that.From what I understand the rest of the universe wants the same things from you. Yipes! So I'll start with adoring you.
Hey! M&P is reading for their next issue, I'm pretty sure - send them something asap.
So glad you joined Cervena Barva Press group and look forward to reading lots of your work!
hey - a fellow downanddirty alum! Love the Legendary. Good to see your work here as well.
your generous words on "spring" made my day. i can't even tell you (i'm telling you) how nice that is to hear.
i'm been really enjoying your poems, the russian lumberjack has great language -- and i look forward to reading more!
Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments. I look forward to reading your work.
Look forward to reading.
punt away, jen. punt punt punt.
Thanks so much. Can't wait to see you around the workshoppy group!
Hola, thank you for your overly kind comments. I am inviting you to my workshoppy group (it's "private" and stories there aren't searchable on google. Welcome and thanks again. D
Hey, lady! Welcome to the Prick of the Spindle group--it's good to have you with us.
