Thank you for your star. Shines bright in my world.
Morgan, so glad to revisit your poem, "On the Way to Your First AA Meeting" via Gary Percesepe's appreciation of it at the Fictionaut blog. He is so right that your perceptive comments go beyond the ordinary. You wrote that hierarchies are defied in some of my writing; it opened my eyes to know it could be read that way.
Morgan, really enjoying what you've posted here at F'naut. Excited to see what's next for you in the year ahead!
Thanks for the comments, Morgan. I've never read a word writ by Leonora Carrington.
Thanks for the comment and for stopping by, Tracey.
Morgan, thanks for commenting on my story "Gardening". i appreciate it :-)
Thanks Morgan, for reading and commenting on Thanksgiving Day 2039. I pulled it out only because it seemed to be making a political statement that wasn't something I wanted to push on a day of giving thanks.
Thank you Morgan for your kind comments on Off Island. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! "On the Way to Your First AA Meeting" has really stuck with me. It's such a beautiful piece.
Thank you Morgan for your comment on Get Some Strange - You made my day :)
Thanks for the comments. Have you seen there is a poetry group? I think you must join.
Thanks for reading and commenting on my story, Morgan!
Thank you, Morgan!
Thanks for the nod and the comment on my story "Training Exercise." I really appreciate your kind comments. Looking forward to checking out your work.
Thanks for the welcome back, Morgan. I've got a lot of catching up to do!
Great to get this latest commentary from you! I've been away from Fictionaut for a while and had put some of my writings aside for a few months. Your feedback has inspired me to continue moving forward.
Morgan--thank you very much for taking the time to comment on my poem. Very much appreciated.
thanks for the comments re: social aid & pleasure. I yanked it already because the feedback helped me figure some important stuff out.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! Your comments/faving of the Craig Biltman piece go a long long way as I push thorugh this novel, fighting self doubt!!!!
Morgan, thanks so much for taking the time to read "Cracking Open" and to comment. I truly appreciate it.
Surprised and happy you could find that in the library and flattered you'd take the trouble.
Thanks for adding my story to your list of favorites. Best, Isabell
thanks for your note and the fave! I'm really glad the character makes sense to someone else.
Morgan, thanks for reading my story and for your kind comments. I enjoyed reading your work as well. In particular, I like the whimsical voice in "Rehabilitating My Cat."
Thanks, Morgan, for your comment on "Seishin," which is a small piece from my sprawling, 700-page novel "Grok," but still very important in establishing the character of Hiro Nakazawa as a rival to Grok, the young computer prodigy on this global quest to solve the Turing Test. Japanese culture really absorbed me for a number of years and required intense study of the language, history, and people in order to create the character of Hiro. I see that you've been keeping a reader's journal, which is terrific. It's the best way to expand one's knowledge and understanding of literature. Good luck with your novel and book of poems!
Thank you for your kind attention to my story. This is the first one I've done, and I hope I can continue.
Thanks for the greeting, Morgan. I'm still finding my way outside the nonfiction world. btw, my son is a sophomore at Wisconsin, preparing for his second Madison winter.
