Im just a simple girl with a not so simple life.
Please people, critique away!!
If something i wrote sucks, I want to know in detail exactly how hard and why it sucked.
Likewise, if it rocked, rock my world with your compliments!!

Sara: Thanks for the kind words about How To Become A Great Writer! Glad I was on your radar and glad that you are now on mine.
Thank you, Sara, I am especially fond of the first line myself, I'm glad it ended up working. Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it!
Gosh, thanks so much, Sara! It is actually part of a story. There are a couple other stories, too, with this narrator. I'm new to fictionaut, and it seems to me that it's best to post short pieces. I could be wrong. I'd like to post longer stories, haven't tried it yet, though. But I do appreciate your comment!
Thanks so much for your comments on "Invasive Species." I love your response to it.
sara t. it's always good to see you again. Thanks for the comment.
Thanks so much for commenting, Sara. Looking forward to reading your work.

Much appreciate your comments on my poem, Leave Theory After The Ungodly Snow . Thanks, Sara.

Sara, thnak you so much for your kind words about Red Fox Rampant.
Thanks, Sara, for your comments on Elephant. Glad you liked the piss and the human part of it, too.
sara--thx for reading Folded Flower...glad the brevity worked...it helped having a word limit, even if re-writes put me slightly over!
Sara, thanks so much for reading and commenting on Peach. I have two daughters. This stuff haunts me. But at least I know it's out there for mitigation. I'm new and still looking around, look forward to reading all your stories!

Thank you, Sara, for your kind comments on "Every time we kiss..."!
Thank you for your comments on My Favorite Color. Based on your suggestions I read it again and agree that the last line is not needed.
Thanks for your comments about the challenges and rewards of poetry.
Sara, thank you for your kind comment on "Hey Jude." Glad to meet you on here!
Thanks for your kind and generous response to "Jelly Doughnuts", Sara.

Thank you, Sara, for your comments on The Lucky Children, and for your comments on so many of my words. I truly appreciate it.
Thanks Sara, I'm pleased you enjoyed my poem.
Thank you Sara for reading "Classmates" and your kind words. I have been thinking about that a lot lately--how things people do that seem small or foolish can be a kind of bravery.
Thanks, Sara, for your nice comments about Suite Loss.
Sara, thanks so much for reading my story. I appreciate your thoughts. You raised a great question, which I tried to answer over on the page. Hope that helps, some.
Thanks so much for your comments on my poems, they're much appreciated :)
Thanks for the comment on "Pacific", Sarah.
Thanks for reading my story, Sara!
thanks, sara, for your thoughtful comments on 'mother of two sentences', much appreciated. just read your 'toothbrush' - really liked it. martha
Thanks,Sara. Yes, you may be right about my story, Without Consent. Does a guy exist who could be this remorseful? Would a teenager like Danny feel so bad so soon, after the event and then to carry that guilt for so long? Does his youth stand in his favour - seeing that the part of the brain, which controls impulse behaviour does not mature until 25? I don't know, I only know that I would forgive him.
Thanks for reading Reunion. It's one that's quite close to my heart.
Thanks for reading 15 Minutes More. I agree, it could use some tightening up. I assume the editor at Raphael's Village will take care of that.
Thanks, Sara, for your lovely comments on 'cake tin rusted'.
Nice to get to know my colleagues over on the Blue.
Thank you for your nice words about Claws.
Thanks Sara, for your very kind words about 'The Right Words' much appreciated.
Hi,Sara, I'm really glad you enjoyed my story. Rather cathartic to write but it took me along time to get it out there. I was lucky enough to win an open mic night with this piece and I was shaking the whole time I was reading it.
I just wanted to say hi and thank you for your comment on Accidental Faith. Sorry for the late reply, but I seem to be slowly weening myself into this whole social networking thing. Not staying on top of it like I should. I'll make sure to check out your own work!
Hi Sara - thanks for reading Eight States Away. Your comments were really appreciated. foster.
Hi Sara, I'm a bit late with this, but wanted to thank you for reading A Dream Life. foster.
Thanks for the comments, Sara!
Hi Sarah - thanks for the comment on the CHUD story. I had fun with that one. Glad to make your acquaintance!
sara t., thank you for your comments on "Maps"!
Sara - thanks for reading & commenting on "My Beloved Favilla", and no, it was just the guitar, though I wanted the mis-conception. If I treated anyone like that, I wouldn't have been with them in the first place!
Can you scan it and email it to me?
Let me know if you find that male/female computer piece. I'd be interested in reading it.
Thanks for the nice comment!
Sara: Thanks for your comment about my cats stories. I thought about changing the viewpoint of one when I paired them, then said to heck with it. I agree that the second one is a better story. True, too!
Hi Sara, thank you for commenting on "Algae Freunden."
Hi Sara, thanks for reading Cactus - I really appreciate your comments.
Yup, it's on the blog and the mailer too. Thank you so much!
Hi Sara - I haven't logged into Fictionaut too often lately so I have yet to catch up on your new posts, but Marcelle Heath dropped me a note to say that you had selected my piece as a Fictionaut Fave. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it!
Hi Sara, I'm happy you liked my little chapter flash. Thanks for commenting.
thanks sara, I appreciate it.
Hi Sara, Thanks for reading A Life Twice Told - I'm glad you liked it.
well, great piece, sara, what can i say. i see you're enjoying yourself and i'm enjoying reading your pieces.
Hello hello hello Sara! Thanks so much for the lovely comment you left on 634. It was very sweet of you & made me smile like a total idiot. I hope today is working out alright for you, where ever you may be!
Sara, thank you! I really appreciated your comments on "Sanctuary"!
Good points, Sara. I'm at the grandkids stage myself, and one of the joys of that is that you get to at least control the dosage! Ha! Not so easy during parenting time.
Sana, I appreciate the kind words about my stories. I agree with your comment about the last story; it's got more heft to it.
Sara, so nice to hear you also liked Walk on Water. I loved loved the scene where they were driving back from the beach and the brother was translating that song for his guest. Such a great, brutal movie.
So glad you liked "Peach." What a lovely message to receive on this snowy winter morning. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment.
Any luck finding your panic attack piece? Still love to read it. Thanks, again, for the kind words on Friction.
thank you, sara, for your comments on "winter's presence 2010". i'm happy you understood the poem. your feedback is greatly appreciated!
Thanks for your comments on my story, sara t.!
Do let me know if/when you post the panic attack story. I'd love to read it. Thanks, again, for commenting on Friction.
Thanks so much for reading my story and adding a comment. Hope to have the rest of the story up soon!
I enjoyed reading about Annie, and look forward to reading more about her. Cheers!
Thanks for the comment on "Visitation Hour." I'm glad you enjoyed it!.
hi sara, thanks again for your thoughts on my work. i see you've got quite a few posted so i've got to play catch-up!
Thanks for the read and comments on Cupcake! Your reaction is just what I was looking for.
Sara, thanks so much for your generous comments on Jew. I look forward to reading your work.
Thanks again, Sara!
Sara, thanks for your message! I continue to be amazed that those lines should be controversial, but I've been around long enough to know how that would be so, of course. I come from a time when families were still announcing the death of their sons, brothers, husbands, fathers with "proud sorrow."
Yes re Facebook. But you'll have to contact me, as I don't think I'll have the patience to discover the right Sara T. And I have to admit that I'm not terribly active on Facebook.
Sara, thanks for your comment on Mary Magdalen. I love your Annie stories. Some of that achy indifference strikes home. I also love this from "I, Too, Dream:"
I dream that no mother
Will exhalt her sons death
With her pain
Thank you for reading and commenting on my story.
Thank you, Sara!
Thanks so much, Sara! Whagt a nice comment re Movie Night. Much obliged. D
you're quite welcome. stay with it - it's a good thing.
Thank you, Sara! I really appreciate your kind words about my writing. I've started following you here on Fictionaut and will check out your pieces as well. All the best!
whoops, i missed your kind wall note. Happy New Year.
Thanks for your comments. Appreciated.
Thanks for your kind and prompt comment! It's only been up about 3 minutes. You must have seen it quickly because we're both in Brooklyn. Wait... does the internet work like that?
Oooh! That's so weird! I did just read 'Breathing.' Check out my comment. (That's the second time today Fictionaut seems to be working as a kind of Greater Consciousness.) Gulp!
hey, i hear you and i understand you. personally, i find it difficult to mix critique and encouragement on the "public wall". that's what the workshoppy groups are for ... i use the "hidden workshop" - you get to it via the doormat thread in the "workshop group"...or by messaging (and massaging if you want) susan gibb or dorothee lang...once the critiqueing starts it won't stop believe me...
Sara - love love love your work! Especially curious to know if Annie might become part of a longer story? Not that she needs to - Annie's Chase works exceptionally well at its present length. Looking forward to reading mroe of your work.
Sara, thanks so much for checking out my story. And a fellow Brooklynite no less!
oh, you will get feedback here, especially (big secret) if you give feedback to others. the secret of any community existence: give more than/as you get. cheers! (will check it out...next few days...tired now, late in europe!)
i'll be damned if i don't write on your wall to welcome you. i liked annie's chase, too!
