Re: Grading your critiques

I DID it! a despair...in truth it has many many problems. the most positive outcome is that my story now has a life of its' own. It is...

Despite "New Tricks". this old dog is going to stay dumb about some things...the mountain will have to come to me. my wife is from upper New York so the Adirondacks are out.

Re: Grading your critiques

Re: the house on east 14th street

thanks!
I'm starting on book two (New Eden) now.
writing is fun.....I only wish I had paid more attention to the prof of "creative writing"
and...while it was necessary to my career, the past passive is REAL dull!

Return to #10 Sumer Sokok

Ankara has exploded across the barren hills.
Growing younger, noisier, flushed in growth.
“New Town” is no longer a novice,
Whispers of street vendors, a shadowy memory,
Replaced by young Turks, tourists, and accretion.

Re: the house on east 14th street

ok...I'd like comments on this. it's about ready to publish. the publlishing game has REALLY changed! my guess the best way to go with this 10 episode thing is with Lulu (published there before...got some money!) there are some nice photos that go with it, but I can not figure out how to add them.

Questions

Do these words,
Written:stark black on white,
And dead;
Lay at rest?

Is there movement,
In some magical way,
Transforming them;
Into thought?

Does a song
Invisible- but truly real,
Vibrating briefly,
Ever die?

Do you,
Hidden forever from me,
A string apart,
Exist?

yes
