    Why do you write?

    I write to make sense of it all without ever getting close. I write to express in words what I cannot express verbally. I write because, on rare occasions, it gives me goosebumps. I write when I miss my mother, or father, or James, Mel, or anyone else who is no longer in physical form.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Javed Hayat – Sep 29, 2013

    Hi Robert,

    Thank you for your wonderful comment on The Boy Who Knew Death. Appreciate the read and the fav'. :)

    Michelle Elvy – Sep 15, 2013

    hi Robert! Thanks for stopping by Cornfield and leaving your comment. Glad it worked -- and I'm especially glad I can take you on unexpected journeys. That is a lovely thing to say. Thank you.

    Tina Barry – Sep 08, 2013

    Hi Robert. Thanks so much for the kind words and star! I'm looking forward to seeing you in NY next month. You're a great source of support for me.

    Michelle Elvy – Aug 14, 2013

    Thanks for the comment and *, Robert! Good seeing you here!

    hi rob

    Gessy Alvarez – Jan 02, 2013

    Hi Robert. Thanks for reading "The Fire Escape." Again. I remember how anxious I was to send this piece to you. Happy you liked it enough to include it in such a fine publication. Ever grateful!

    Gessy Alvarez – Dec 29, 2012

    Thank you, Robert for reading "Menthol." Your comment means the world to me. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you during your last visit to NYC. The KGB reading looked amazing in pictures. Cheers!

    Tyler D. Findlay – Dec 02, 2012

    Thanks, Robert!

    Joani Reese – Nov 27, 2012

    Hi Robert-- Nice to see you back here, if even for a moment. Thanks for reading and remarking on "Good Times." I think many writers' families have a bit of the old man in them (or old lady, as the case may be). We love them and resent them as we pack the experiences they provide into trunks and bags that lie gathering dust until we are ready to open them and air them out. All writers are big, fat liars, of course, but there is always that germ of truth hidden behind the fanciful interpretation.

    Keith Rebec – Nov 18, 2012

    Thanks for the welcome, Robert!

    Sam Beasley – Nov 17, 2012

    Hi Robert, thanks for the welcome!

    Gessy Alvarez – Nov 11, 2012

    Thanks, Robert (for reading "The Man of the Blue Ski Jacket"). We just hunkered down during Hurricane Sandy. I did lots of reading so it felt more like no frills artistic retreat. So many are still going without. It's a bad deal.

    Foster Trecost – Oct 23, 2012

    Hello Robert, Thanks for the comments on Dog Days. I always appreciate your thoughts. fos.

    To answer your question, I'm not originally from Upstate NY though I've lived here outside Ithaca for 18 years. I grew up in Minneapolis.

    Foster Trecost – Oct 02, 2012

    Gessy Alvarez – Sep 12, 2012

    Thanks, Robert for faving "With A Hint of God." I'm trying to up my game a bit, go for the lyrical...will keep experimenting.

    Tina Barry – Sep 12, 2012

    Hi Robert. Thanks for the note. I posted "White Legs" a few days ago, if you want to take a look. I think you might like it. Look forward to your comments at the WS, and congrats on all your new publications!

    Goodness, Robert. Thank you. Your words are too kind.

    kate hill cantrill – Sep 02, 2012

    Hi Robert! Thanks so super muchly for your nice comment on my interview by Meg! I don't seem to be able to reply directly there, but it may possibly be because I am a moron, not sure. If you are ever interested in reading, or better yet reading in a play/performance style for my Rabbit Tales series in DUMBO BK, second Thursday of every month, please be in touch-- it's reading and performance and I think I remember you being somewhat into performance or writing for it and I'm trying more for that these days. Just give me a few weeks notice if you'll be in town and you are booked to do what you wish! It's always a super happy fun time! All excellent! kate

    Jamie Grefe – Aug 31, 2012

    Michael Gillan Maxwell – May 19, 2012

    Hi Robert! Very much appreciate the interaction on my post office piece. One of the amusements of contemporary life. Although I suppose we could still be sending messages tied to the leg of a homing pigeon, so I shouldn't really complain! ;-) Thanks for the read, the comment and the Fave!

    Tina Barry – May 19, 2012

    Thanks for the kind words, Robert, and the star. Hope your Portland trip was great.

    Love "Three for Carol".

    Foster Trecost – Apr 25, 2012

    Hi Robert, thanks for spending a few minutes with 9 and 5, I really appreciate it. Your fictionaut pic reminds me of John Lennon's Rock & Roll album - the cover has him standing in a doorway, leaned against the jam. Anyway, thanks. You gonna make it to KGB in June? fos.

    Michael Gillan Maxwell – Apr 02, 2012

    Hi Robert! Thanks so much for read and commenting on "Disappointment"! I really enjoy the interaction and value the feedback. Yes, I'm sure we could spend an entire Grateful Dead weekend and then some telling stories about the halcyon days of our wayward youth!

    Michael Gillan Maxwell – Mar 29, 2012

    Thanks so much Robert! Without silly we would all go insane!

    Bill Yarrow – Mar 25, 2012

    Michael Gillan Maxwell – Mar 12, 2012

    Hey Robert! Thanks so much for stopping by to partake in the nuttiness of "The Last of the Hard Boiled Dicks" and to make such a warm and encouraging comment. I appreciate it so much. And thanks for the *! Silliness abounds!

    Berit Ellingsen – Mar 11, 2012

    Looking forward to reading your piece in the beautiful Lost In Thought Magazine!

    Love,
    Berit

    Linda Simoni-Wastila – Mar 10, 2012

    Robert, thanks for your kind words on I Remember Kitty D. This story felt pretty effortless for me, I think because I have eben steeped in so many memories of late. Winter does that to me at times, pulls me inside myself, my history. Peace...

    Eli Hopkins – Mar 07, 2012

    Thanks a lot, Robert, much appreciation!

    Kathy Fish – Mar 06, 2012

    MaryAnne Kolton – Feb 17, 2012

    Robert, thank you dear one. As I grow older I have discovered that life just happens. It's the strength we somehow find within ourselves to deal with life that makes us who we are. Blah, blah, blah.

    See ya – Feb 17, 2012

    Thanks for the close and considerate read of my recent story. I'm always happy to have you read something of mine.

    Michael Gillan Maxwell – Jan 02, 2012

    Michael Gillan Maxwell – Dec 27, 2011

    Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on "Grace" Robert! Your insight and suggestions relative to the organization of the piece are greatly appreciated and will be carefully considered, as I find am still tinkering with the structure. It all came out as one outburst on a wave of emotion, and then I found myself rewriting and revising for the next solid week. I'm going to play around with your idea. Thanks so much.

    Bill Yarrow – Dec 26, 2011

    Thanks for faving "Magritte," Robert. I wrote it so long ago--it's cheering you still see "me" in it!

    Michael Gillan Maxwell – Dec 06, 2011

    Thanks so much for reading and commenting on Elegy for the Zuccotti republic. I don't think I've EVER used this much dialogue in a piece - and the one I am working on right now has no dialogue whatsoever - in terms of duality - I have been both characters in this story. Thanks for reading and commenting - grateful and appreciative!

    Harley May – Dec 04, 2011

    Thanks for asking about the volume! You know me--always tinkering. Just sent the latest edit of the ms to the publisher. I'm close! I'll be sure to let you know.

    Michael Gillan Maxwell – Nov 22, 2011

    Robert- Thanks so much for reading, commenting and putting a gold star next to my name on the blackboard! haha! The name Chicken on a Wire, has always stuck in my head because it was such a surrealistic use of language. The basic story just kind of came to me, so I researched bull riding to write a short piece about overcoming fear, our mystical bond with animals and the quirky, outlandish names given to rodeo bulls. One of my readers raised the question about cruelty to animals, and while it is a provocative question and certainly one worthy of further investigation, I think the bulls definitely had the upper hand throughout this piece, and ended up being sympathetic protagonists in their own right. One thing I learned from researching this is that the bulls are treated like absolute rock stars and super star athletes. They are given their own scores and rated like the riders, and, needless to say, are quite pampered. There's a whole subculture going on here that I know very little ab

    Marcus Speh – Nov 20, 2011

    Robert,
    I am so pleased by your support and your appreciation of "Sounds of Silence".

    Jack Swenson – Nov 17, 2011

    Robert, thanks for your comment on my Twain story and--gee whiz--a fave, too! I agree with your choice of words, too. Indeed it has because a desperate and dispiriting situation.

    Kathy Fish – Nov 17, 2011

    Robert, thanks so much for the kind comments and fav for "Baby, Baby..." !

    Barry Basden – Nov 16, 2011

    Thanks, Robert, for your very kind, layered comments about "Rainier." I'm glad it touched you.

    Thanks, Robert. The gut is my favorite place to punch :)

    Jack Swenson – Nov 14, 2011

    Robert, You da man! Thanks so much for your flattering comment about my Twain story. I needed that!

    Michael Gillan Maxwell – Nov 14, 2011

    Thanks for the invitation and the welcome Robert! Holy Cow! Once glance at your page tells me I've got some work to do!!!! I am really looking forward to it.

    Nicole Bonaccorso – Nov 13, 2011

    Your comment made me smile. Lately--too much to explain--I've needed smiles more than anything.

    Bonnie ZoBell – Nov 08, 2011

    Thanks so much for your comments on "Serial," Robert. Means a lot!!

    Tim Young – Nov 02, 2011

    Thanks for following, and for the welcome, Robert.

    Marcus Speh – Oct 28, 2011

    hi robert, i happen to be up for a change, am writing, and your kind and generous note comes just right to revive the snoozing spirit. the answer is, i suppose, it's channeled, all that works as writing must be channeled, and i know you knew that, because it's what you do, too...thanks!

    Matthew A. Hamilton – Oct 19, 2011

    Thank you for reading Psych Interview with a Rape Victim. Much appreciated.

    Hi Robert. I don't even know you, but I love you! ; ) Thanks for liking For Captain Paul, and yes, we MUST meet. We must. Best--

    Luke Tennis – Oct 09, 2011

    I see you mentioned Gina Berriault as a fav writer. I knew her, studied under her at San Francisco State. I felt she was under appreciated there. She was a gem and nobody knew it. She lived with the writer of a great book, Fat City, Leonard Gardner. He was a great guy, too. It saddened me when I heard Gina died. She was a wonderful writer and person.

    Luke Tennis – Oct 09, 2011

    Yes, Robert, I've read your story. It does seem like we're on the same wavelength here. I've seen you a lot on Fictionaut, and I'm actually interested in reading more of your stories. It seems like one could spend a lot of time on this site. I feel like a bit of a rookie, still. Thanks for being welcoming to the new kid.

    John Riley – Oct 08, 2011

    Hi, Robert. Thanks for reading and commenting on "Three Stories of You." Delighted you enjoyed it.

    Jack Swenson – Oct 06, 2011

    Robert, your kind words (this time re: "Hot Dish") mean a lot. It's nice to get a thumbs up from the champ.

    Joe Kapitan – Oct 06, 2011

    Robert, thanks for the vivid commentary on Feral. I'm happy you enjoyed it.

    Kari Nguyen – Oct 06, 2011

    Jack Swenson – Sep 30, 2011

    Robert, Thank you for another excellent review! I've seen some twisters at a distance, one up close & personal. Don't want to go through another. Got enough to worry about living as I do on an earthquake fault!

    Jack Swenson – Sep 28, 2011

    Wow! Terrific review of my heron story. Thank you very much.

    Joani Reese – Sep 27, 2011

    Joani Reese – Sep 13, 2011

    Hi Robert: Your comment on "It is what it is" was kind. I'm sorry I had to write it. Thank you.

    Jason Williams – Sep 11, 2011

    Thank you, sir.

    Bill Yarrow – Sep 11, 2011

    Great comment on the Chattanooga poem. Thanks, Robert!

    Christopher Allen – Sep 08, 2011

    Hey RV! It's great to be back creeping into my routine. I think I even wrote and submitted something yesterday, but then I still have a bit of jetlag. I might have just downloaded porn. Thank you for commenting on "Husk of Hare." And thank you for the welcome back. Sweet.

    Chad Rohrbacher – Sep 08, 2011

    Hi Robert,

    Thanks for the drop by -- getting used to the digs -- need to get some furniture in here and visit the neighbors.

    Michael Seidel – Sep 07, 2011

    Thanks for the invite!

    Joani Reese – Sep 06, 2011

    Robert: Your kind response to "The Lost Boy" made my day. I wish I did have you as a student. I suspect it would have been a lively class indeed!

    Susan Tepper – Sep 05, 2011

    Hey Robert! thanks for what you wrote about "kid" and so looking forward to seeing you!!

    Joani Reese – Aug 18, 2011

    Robert: How lovely to wake up and read your kind words about my poem "Play" this morning. Loved your interview and pic. too. You're gonna be famous, kid!

    Jack Swenson – Aug 17, 2011

    Glad you liked the Chagall story, Robert. It was great fun to write. I'm sure I stole the idea for a story based on a painting or drawing, but I can't remember when & where & who.

    T.R. Wolfe – Aug 17, 2011

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Joani Reese – Aug 17, 2011

    Ann Wahlman – Aug 01, 2011

    Thanks for the warm welcome! See you around...

    Berit Ellingsen – Jul 31, 2011

    Hi Robert! Thank you so much for the positive feedback on Early Summer. :) Thank you for reading and commenting. :)

    Did you make the artwork in your picture? Like the contrast between the colors in the artwork and you wearing all white.

    Mark Reep – Jul 30, 2011

    Hi Robert, thanks for taking time to read and comment on 'Reasons'. Written originally to lighten up a gallery talk or some such artsiness :) & all credit to Letterman's writers for making the form part of our culture. Was a fun little piece, glad you enjoyed.

    J. Mykell Collinz – Jul 30, 2011

    Hi, Robert. Thanks for reading 'I Wouldn't Wanna Be Me.' I greatly appreciate your excellent comment. And the fave.

    Cherise Wolas – Jul 26, 2011

    Thanks Robert for your lovely words on The Lake Husband. It's funny as I revise a novel I completed a while ago - not the one in progress from which The Lake Husband is taken - it's a solitary pursuit, great as it is, but it hasn't allowed me the time or mental energy to partake in FN right now, and I found that I was needing to read some work and put a piece of mine out there for some response to know that I was still alive! So thank you for reading and the lovely encouragement.

    Susan Tepper – Jul 24, 2011

    Robert thanks so much for all the sweet things you said about my poem "holding"

    Bill Yarrow – Jul 24, 2011

    Great comment on "Four Noble Lies," Robert. Wow! Flattered. Thanks. And for the fave.

    Jack Swenson – Jul 22, 2011

    Yay! Another vote for Yes on Tots! Thanks for the comment and the fav.

    Christian Tomsey – Jul 21, 2011

    Hi there! Thanks for the welcome -- thought I've been slow to respond. I found your list of associations/memberships very helpful as a new writer in Wisconsin. Thank you!

    Christian Bell – Jul 19, 2011

    Robert, thanks for your comments on "Shoot"!

    Marda Miller – Jul 19, 2011

    Hi Robert, I sincerely appreciate your comment on The Escapists, and thank you immensely for the little star :)

    Joani Reese – Jul 18, 2011

    Thank you for reading & liking "Imago" Robert. I appreciate you stopping by...

    Erin Zulkoski – Jul 16, 2011

    Your most enthusiastic comment on "Borrowed Bottle of Bud" made me laugh quite loudly. My dog stared at me.
    Anyway, thank you for that, the fave, and being "The Vaughan."

    Christopher Allen – Jul 15, 2011

    Robert, thank you for your encouragement. Means a lot.

    Joani Reese – Jul 15, 2011

    Robert: You are a gem. Thank you for your enthusiastic responses after reading both "Release" and "Vignette for Spring." Your kindness is much appreciated.

    Maura Fitzgerald – Jul 15, 2011

    Gracias, Roberto, for reading/commenting/faving Snapshot and The Good Farmer. Mostly, though, for your support -- you're a good egg. Can't wait for the return of Fridays!

    Roberto C. Garcia – Jul 14, 2011

    Hi Robert, thanks for the comment and Fave on "Park Bench". So much to observe in such an everyday object.

    Joani Reese – Jul 11, 2011

    Thank you, Robert. I was so pleased to have Thunderclap accept "Happy Hour." Your words are very kind. I'm still picturing a guy with whipped cream on his heels ; )

    Susan Tepper – Jul 10, 2011

    Robert so glad you enjoyed Idiotsky, I adore Russian literature and who doesn't love Chekhov!!! Thanks so much!!!

    Bill Yarrow – Jul 07, 2011

    Thanks for your kind comment on and fave of "Black Ice," Robert!

    Christopher Novas – Jul 07, 2011

    Thanks for the welcome Robert.

    Robert Salley – Jul 06, 2011

    Thanks Robert... enjoying reading your work. I'm really loving this site.

    ABxx – Jul 05, 2011

    Hi Robert--

    Thank you for the fav on "Echolocation Signals". It will be published in the fall issue of the Wilderness House Literary Review. I would love to submit to one of your publications and will definitely look into doing so soon.

    Best,
    Isabell

    Jules Archer – Jul 05, 2011

    Thanks for the mssg on the thread. I knew there was somebody else out there. Buona fortuna there in MKE. LS

    Maura Fitzgerald – Jun 30, 2011

    Hey RV, (hmmm...think I like that for a nickname...prob too late...it got worn out in h.s., right?)
    Many thanks for the invite and welcome. This place is like a crack house for addicts of good writing -- the supply never runs out. Appreciate you sharing your source with a fellow junkie. By the way, you're The Man here, RV. Mind if I follow behind in your draft?

    Foster Trecost – Jun 30, 2011

    Hey Robert, thanks for taking the time to read and comment on Bliss - I really appreciate that. fos.

    DeMisty Bellinger – Jun 28, 2011

    Thanks for the welcome (there's a little learning curve here, so sorry for my late reply)! Say hello to Lake Michigan for me.

    Jack Swenson – Jun 28, 2011

    High praise from such a talented writer. Thanks, Robert. I had fun putting "Sweet Dreams" together.

    Matthew A. Hamilton – Jun 27, 2011

    Thank you for reading and commenting on Looking Both Ways. Glad you liked it.

    Christian Bell – Jun 27, 2011

    Robert, thanks for your comments last week on "Drive." I returned to Fictionaut, just before I went on vacation for a week (which is why I'm late thanking you)!

    Barry Friesen – Jun 27, 2011

    Robert, thank you for the astute comments about "Hat Trick." I see you have background in playwrighting. That explains, a bit, at least, why your own stuff is so tight and clean. No words to spare onstage, yes? EVERYTHING counts. As it does in your prose, movingly so.

    Walter Bjorkman – Jun 27, 2011

    Robert - thanks for the great comments on Paper House & remembering it from metazen. Seems like dialogue & characters are my forte, at least in stories apart from poems. Yep, the 52 run was incredible, what seemed like an interminable time when we did it now seems like it went by in a flash. More to come, as you know, but at a much more sane pace.

    Eryk Wenziak – Jun 26, 2011

    Howdy, Robert! I appreciate your suggestion on "mourning." It makes sense in keeping with those "-ing" endings. (That's why I love this place so much. The feedback is wonderful.) On a separate note: I really enjoyed your radio segment from Friday. It's always fun to hear a voice of someone you've never spoken to or met. Yours is pleasant to listen to and perfect for reading poetry. Thanks, again!

    Bill Yarrow – Jun 26, 2011

    Thanks for faving "The Lost Boys," Robert. Lump in the throat, ache in the heart. I fear for these kids, but as I wrote Marcus Speh, maybe every older generation sees a younger generation as "lost."

    Berit Ellingsen – Jun 26, 2011

    Hi Robert! Thank you so much for the very positive feedback to my story A June Defection! I'm very glad to hear you enjoyed it and appreciate your comment a lot. I'm a little stunned, actually. :)

    Meg Tuite – Jun 24, 2011

    I'm always thankful for a comment from Robert Vaughan!! You are so insightful and I am loving your work, as always! Keep it coming!!! Thanks for the kind words on "Couple Busting."

    thank you robert for yr comment on <a href="http://www.fictionaut.com/stories/marcus-speh/under-the-apple-tree">under the apple tree</a>. i continue to find the collaboration with an artist/non-artist, my own child, most gratifying. it helps me get to places that i didn't know where there. your work is very visual too and i love that.

    Christopher Allen – Jun 19, 2011

    Hey you you! :) Back at you. Loved Don Ho's Ho.

    MaryAnne Kolton – Jun 18, 2011

    Robert, Great insite! I worked for eight years rid myself of the big rocks and still have a sizable pile of pebbles to deal with. Writing is my therapy now. Each time I am able to reveal part of myself in my work those stones turn to pebbles and the pebbles to dust. Thank so much for seeing this piece for exactly what it is.

    Gill Hoffs – Jun 17, 2011

    Gosh - what a generous review! I'll be reading it over the phone to my mum this weekend. Thank you so much for the kind words and also the opportunity to place work here. Much appreciated.

    Jim V – Jun 17, 2011

    Roberto C. Garcia – Jun 16, 2011

    Hi Robert! NYC is a great place to grow up isn't it? Thanks for the comments and fave on "Summertime City"! If a fellow New Yorker liked it then I know I'm on the right path.

    Robin Black – Jun 15, 2011

    I thanked you for your welcome and your comment - but I did it on my own wall which I've just realized is probably wrong. I am new around these parts. But thank you!

    J. A. Tyler – Jun 15, 2011

    Thanks for reading my work Robert. Be well,

    Joe Kapitan – Jun 15, 2011

    Susan Tepper – May 19, 2011

    Susan Tepper – May 07, 2011

    Judith Ossello – Apr 18, 2011

    Hi Robert, I'll look to you for poetry recommendations. My picks are a bit "classic rock" in the best sense of the word as it might pertain to poetry. I noticed you listed Raymond Chandler, which I've been reading a bit lately to get better at quick descriptions.

    Foster Trecost – Apr 18, 2011

    Hi Robert. Thanks for reading Books and Covers, and thanks for the comment, too - means a lot! fos.

    Bill Yarrow – Apr 16, 2011

    Dear Robert, Have to thank you for always taking the time to read and send insightful comments on my stories! I am a fan of your work, you know, and so it means so much to get a note back from Robert or see a Robert story posted! Sorry, I'm late on the commenting. Just found these comments on Fictionaut. I'm definitely not a veteran here!!! Thanks for all! You rock!!!

    Andrew Stancek – Apr 09, 2011

    Hi, Robert. I just saw your comment. I want to say "you're welcome," but feel you should instead be thanked. I was thrilled to see the response for "The Passenger." I'm grateful to you both for the reconsideration of the ending, and for allowing me to feature it on TrainWrite.

    Tina Barry – Mar 31, 2011

    Hi Robert. Thanks for the "fave" (3x!) and the star for "August". I'm glad you like the poem.

    Jack Swenson – Mar 23, 2011

    Robert, I'm always glad to get a thumbs up from you. Thanks for your comment on "Big."

    Brianne Baxtali – Mar 21, 2011

    "Fidget" is a good fit for me now: You'll never meet a more nervous person.

    Actually, the story of how I got my nickname is this: In my group of friends eleven or so years ago, I lamented the fact that that I was the only one who lacked a nickname. "Probably because all I do is make fun of A Flock of Seagulls videos and fidget controllably."

    "Well," Adam replied. "There you go, Fidget."

    It stuck for so long because it's a perfect fit. I'm pretty sure there's people out there who know me only as "Fidget".

    I'm sure that's more than you wanted to know, but thanks for the (re)welcome to Fictionaut all the same.

    Tina Barry – Mar 21, 2011

    You're welcome, Robert, and me too!

    Jen Knox – Mar 20, 2011

    Shelagh Power-Chopra – Feb 17, 2011

    Walter Bjorkman – Feb 03, 2011

    Hey Robert - thanks for the congrat's on Elsie's World's pubbing - as long as no one expects anything more than stories with no point (really) & a good table-leveler, I should be okay.

    Bill Yarrow – Feb 03, 2011

    Hey, Robert. Great comment on "Wahrheit und Dichtung." Thanks! Congrats on story at Elimae.

    Catherine Davis – Dec 21, 2010

    Robert, thanks so much for reading X - your observations make my day, already. So good to be gotten, as I can tell you know. (Particularly in tricky instances such as X.) You - I like why you write, so looking forward to checking that out.

    Marcus Speh – Dec 21, 2010

    robert, you're way too kind. happy holidays to you too and thank you so much for your compliment on "winter". may we all emerge from it with even more creative power than we already have...and you've got more than enough. wish i could see one of your plays - alas, europe.

    What is it about that story "mark" that just draws you guys? hmmm. must have put a lot of testosterone into that one, ha! a pyschic once told me i have a male spirit.

    Michelle Elvy – Dec 10, 2010

    Robert! You made my day! Thanks for the love, I can feel it all the way over here. Back at you (I can never bring myself to write 'ya' or even 'atcha' even though I know that expression warrants it -- it just does not come out right when my fingertips go to the keys... but the sentiment is wholehearted, indeed)!

    Matt Potter – Dec 08, 2010

    Hi Robert - thanks for the Thunderclap invite but I am a member already! But it's nice to eb thought of ... Matt

    Erin Zulkoski – Dec 06, 2010

    W.F. Lantry – Nov 10, 2010

    Thanks for your note, and the welcome. I did actually have something in the last JMWW, a review of a book of poetry. But no fiction or verse in there so far...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    David Abrams – Nov 10, 2010

    Hi Robert! Good to "see" you here. I think I had forgotten you were on the jmww staff. I will, indeed, send something. I think I may have to go underground again and work on the new stories for awhile. Very good stories here aren't there! Cheers.

    Mark Reep – Oct 21, 2010

    Robert, thanks for your comments on Check Engine. Much appreciated.

    Yes, I love Fictionaut and The Nervous Breakdown. Great you had a piece up there. I wish I could have stayed the featured author up there indefinitely...

    Marcy

    Mark Krieger – Jul 19, 2010

    I'd love to get together! That's nice as hell of you to offer. I live in West Bend, a 45 minute or so spin from Milwaukee. Do you read stories for a fee outside of round tables?

    Mark Krieger – Jul 19, 2010

    Hello Robert, i was/am going to take a round table class with you. but i'm currently tied up with another novel endeavor, so i must wait. I believe Judy Bridges was going to give you a heads up about me joining the r.t. i have one story up on my wall that came out in KNOCK but it's not my best. once the newer stories are out in print, one in Narrative and the other in Tampa Review, another in Shamballa Sun, i'll post those. one of my shorts was a finalist for the Danahy Award and also longlisted for the Fish Anthology... or if you want we could exchange stories via email...

    Mandee Wright – Jul 18, 2010

    Thanks for welcoming me to Fictionaut, Robert!

    Jack Swenson – Jul 10, 2010

    Kait Mauro – Jul 10, 2010

    Hey Robert,

    Have a lovely Saturday.
    Kait

    Doug Bond – Jul 04, 2010

    Hey Robert...thanks for the note! I've been off the F'Naut grid a bit...some family stuff here and there, hope to get dialed in again soon. You are certainly on a roll...liked Pheasant Lane, great stuff!

    Teri Pastore – Jul 01, 2010

    Sam Rasnake – Jun 15, 2010

    Hello, Robert.

    Kristen Tsetsi – Jun 15, 2010

    Hi, Robert. Nice to meet you here, too.

    Ajay Nair – Jun 14, 2010

    Hey Robert,

    Thank you for your comment. Most of what I have written is because I found fictionaut - there's a fair amount of inspiration here; before this, I hardly wrote.

    I am still in Bombay; always have been. India is indeed a fascinating country, warts and all. And Bombay is well, Bombay, wouldn't trade it for anything.

    Parker Tettleton – Jun 14, 2010

    Hey, Robert

    Should be tomorrow, Wednesday at the latest. I've managed a few new pieces in the last couple of days but will glad to see everything else again shortly. In the meantime, congrats on your piece in the latest S, F & D! Glad to see several familiar faces. Thanks as always for your support.

    Cherise Wolas – Jun 13, 2010

    Robert,

    Considering your history, and all that you do now - all really impressive - I'd love your comments to some of my pieces!

    Cherise Wolas – Jun 13, 2010

    Thanks Robert for your writing on my wall. I didn't realize you had read some of my work, so thank you for that that. I see I have various pieces of yours to get to! I look forward to it.

    Jack Swenson – Jun 13, 2010

    Wow! Thanks for the great review of "Naked Ladies." I have to confess I was just fooling around with bits and pieces of older stories.

    Julie Innis – Jun 13, 2010

    Thanks for your note, RV - not sure where I am these days. I did see "Moon" with Sam Rockwell recently--an excellent flick, but not a place I'd like to live. The search continues.

    Susan Tepper – Jun 12, 2010

    Robert, what a beautiful thing you wrote to me, I was kind of stunned. Thank you for this
    Susan

    Hi Robert, um no, theatre as an avenue of communication is forever on lockdown to me after some differences of opinion about praxis! Thanks for sopping by my wall. Bests.

    LynnAlexander – Jun 11, 2010

    Hello Robert! Yes, I'm sorry to make that decision about Blink Ink but we have a lot of different projects going on and we really do want to focus on the printed issues. Glad to see you here and talk soon!

    Hi Robert! So nice to "see" you, too! Meg invited me and it's been FUN! Thanks for stopping by my profile! I will have to read some of your stuff. I'm not a very good prose writer yet, but I'm working on it. I am a poet, playing at prose! But, I'll keep making stabs at it, I guess! And by the way, I love Tennessee Williams, too...
