Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Stubblefield and Hopping publish in The Chrysalis Reader

The Chrysalis Reader comes out only once a year.  This year's issue (which reportedly is the last issue after decades of publication) is themed "Patterns."  I'm one of two Asheville writers represented in the issue.  My piece, titled "From a Different World," is an excerpt from my new novel The Paraclete.  My colleague here on The Read of WNC as well as fellow writers' group member Michael Hopping is represented in the issue with the essay "The Triple World."  Michael and I have supplied a…

I'm Scared of What I Write

Am I the only writer around here who sits down, pulls up the most painful part of my psyche, engages whatever skills I have to shape my words, find the meaning in them, work hard to make sure that meaning is to some degree universally relevant, the writing is to some degree entertaining and uplifting -- and then won't try to get it out there for people to read?


I'm really asking you.  I know not everybody finds writing to be like peeling off skin to bare the soul, making…

People are Stealing My Ideas!

I Would Swear People are Stealing My Ideas and Putting them on TV and the Movies!


Have you ever worried that by sending your manuscript to contests, various publications, theaters (if you’re a playwright), and even just colleagues you pretty much trust, you are exposing your ideas to theft?  Has it occurred to you that anybody who reads your work, however honest they are, might, after a little while, forget they’d read it and start thinking it was their own idea, or, more…

Writing that is Disturbing


            Several people who have read my novel, Homunculus, have commented that they were disturbed by it.  Although they said it apologetically to be nice, I'm glad they were disturbed, and just sorry that some people who do make reading a part of their lives nevertheless have a mental list of places they "don't want to go."

Homunculus is about the effect of career-related frustrations on the libido and marriage of a couple when one day the stressed-out…

Yeah, I'd like to get together. I do Barnes and Ignoble about once every two weeks. Feel I had a breakthrough on my nonfiction yesterday, until I let some critic look. Now I'm small again. I'll call you soon. The second half of Kingsolver's "Lacuna" is set in Asheville circa 1940-55 and is fun to go walking around Montford and downtown in.

Hey Jerry-hope you're doing well. The squash slices were indeed for drying. I think I linked to it in my post-but I heard a voice clip of an Indian lady talking of how her mother dried squash by stringing it on thread. After hearing her voice I had to try it-and it worked!

Thank you for the comment on the Gom post. I agree playing in the mud is tons of fun! I wish more kids today had the oppurtunity to find out how fun it is.
