I'm a writer running up and down the halls of the literary underground. I smash cymbals together, I scream, I laugh, I sometimes cry.
My work has appeared or is forthcoming in BLIP(formerly mississippireview.com), Annalemma, Lamination Colony, PANK, LITnIMAGE, Bound Off, Wigleaf, and Per Contra, among others.
I try to be generous and kind. I think it's important.
Hope you are doing well too. All the best for 2012 .
i read your name somewhere recently. where was it?
Fuck I love Beardman.
Now I have to figure out how this actually works…
A belated thanks for helping us get the ball rolling (bounding?) on the Bound Off group!
(Your "man hands" tweet popped up right as I was typing this & scared the bejesus out of me.)
You're a closet-obsessive f-nauter, you bearded person. The Bear engulfs you.
You write on everybody's wall but mine, you ho.
Thanking joo. For the fav, for always prodding me, for the twittering, for everything. Nerd. Loaf. Blorf.
thanx for joining the deckfight group, actually was checking out your blog yesterday after ben tanzer linked over to it.
Are you defused now, Mel?
what? you don't know my journal? where you been? where you at?
Thanks for the FAV my man! Is it okay if I punt the occasional piece your way for your editorial eye? I miss your guiding hand!
Mel, Tia's got your number dude.
Likes-being-bossed. Thank you.
how did i not mention the picture????? oh man that was/is killer. adam robinson had a great pic on EG about my kid drowning story but i gotta say the pic in yours just knocked me on my ass (after i scrolled back up once finishing the story). great stuff. what a pub! d
Amazing piece in Annalemma. Wow. Just left a comment there. The ending, oh man, the ending...
Scan him and send me the file. So I can put it in my file. I have a construction paper/map pencil file. Shut up.
Mel, I got an invite today from Jurgen and since I’m the opposite of Groucho Marx & will join any club that’ll have me …
You are very kind. Hurrah.
YOU TOLD ME TO!
Beardman needs ta have a talk with you about being careful what you wish for. Jerk.
Thanks Mel. I feel like I am finally sitting at the cool kids table.
does this mean you won't read one of my piece on Youtube? I was really hoping you'd read "Flares" from "This Zine Will Change Your Life." xTx really likes that one, even though she lords it over me, won't fave on here.
David Erlewine forgets people he considers friends don't know what a damn goofball he is.
Not as nice as Mel.
you know, i think you ARE generous and kind!
I think you should post a piece from your collab with xtx, toss up a link in the info section, and let some people know about the cool thing you done.
Thanks, Mel! Great to read you here!
what a great wall post, thansk bud. can't wait to check out your bull piece!
yo why don't you post your Bull story in the Bull group? That would be cool. How you doin'?
I got my Heron in the mail, thank you Mr. Bosworth. I'm telling you in advance that if you become egregiously famous, I'm going to eBay the haiku.
I need a snack. Got anything in your beard?
Thanks for the welcome. And the familiar face;-)
Ha re double shit. I'll be on travel the next few weeks but am going to try to keep writing, man. Got to, right?
Prevent Scurvy, eat citrus!
Hey! I made it. Now what?
Hi Mel, welcome & pleased to hear you like the place. No teapot but I'll share my flask.
Welcome! No need to feel dizzy. This is a terrific place, full of great writers and writing. Enjoy!
