fn cut me off! Ah, this isn't a flash comment. In any case, I appreciated your need to express your views and they have been noted. Best, Cherise
Thank you for your opinions on In The Lake. I found it rather remarkable that a rather thorough discussion followed about my work. As I wrote on the story's comment page, I do agree with your views of flash, sometimes. I think when it is well done, it can work beautifully. Capturing a world, the subtext of siblings engaging in exploratory behavior and its attendant sibling power struggle, for example, in few words takes far more time than the relatively few words indicate, and hopefully is far more precise than a multi-thousand word story. That said, while I agree that perhaps incest per se has been overdone, that is not what is really going on here between the sisters. Yes, perhaps that might be the legal term, but it about much more. That too being said, I am developing this piece into something longer, which sets out the sisters' relationship, and ongoing play and struggle between them. I may or may not post here. But I wanted you to know I appreciated your need to
You're correct, that is Florence behind me. I went to Italy for 10 days while I spent a semester in Madrid, Spain. Wonderful city.
