Been writing and designing in a professional capacity (in the advertising field) for more years than I care to admit, but am newer to fiction. Also have a long-standing interest in photography. Most of my stories have accompanying photographs.
The pleasure of contemplating a piece of finished work that feels right.
Tend to read older works and classics but also enjoy non-fiction involving human development and a variety of science disciplines.
Thank you, Paul. Awesome praise for my poem 'Smile'.
Paul, you were an ideal reader for the diminishing verse. Thx for perceptive comments. (I have a background in advertising/commercial writing myself.) Glad to make your acquaintance.
Paul, way back in August you wrote about my story Cockroach, and I saw it just today! eeek! Many thanks!

ps-- did you notice that you were drawn to the ones about food? maybe you felt hungry while you were looking at this site? ha ha! i saw in your bio that you wrote for advertising, and of course that deals with subliminal prompts, so...
would love to see your photos. why not post them along with your stories, some writers have been doing that here and its nice.
Paul, I used to have one many years ago, and yes, they are totally scratchy, and as she was rubbing her face in the blanket I was feeling the scratch. Don't know why I wrote "soft" but I'm changing that word and I appreciate your bringing this to my attention.

Paul - I don't believe you could said anything nicer to me. Thank you so much for reading my stories and saying what you did. So nice to (sort of) meet you here! Best, Meg
Yes, I do it myself, only my twists, if planned, come out amateurish. Often the best twist is one that surprises me after I've written it. Then I know it's okay to leave in. With the amount of writing I've done lately, I've gotten a bit lazy in repairing the ones that don't work. To me, if it wraps up too easy, too contrived, then it's not going to be good.
Hi Paul - thanks for taking the time to read "At the back of the crowd" and providing some great feedback.
Paul - thanks for reading The Ex and leaving your comments. Welcome to Fictionaut!

Paul, I have lots of good memories of that old house on Ridgewood Av. in south Minneapolis, the setting for "Ornithology." Thanks for reading & adding a note.
I know what you mean about the sciences. I love to read any and all new physics books. I find them tremendously rewarding. Welcome.
