Hester

HESTER      Growing up in Asheville,  N.C. in the 50’s and 60’s seemed, at the time, to be filled with a rhythm of adventure and strange encounters sprinkled with an assortment of particularly interesting and somewhat odd characters. One of those persons who fascinated me as a child was my father’s friend “Hester. “       My dad was about as straight an arrow as anyone could find. He seemed to a preadolescent, somewhat indolent son, frankly boring. Looking back from a perspective of 70 years, I…See More

Blind Man's Bluff

According to the Frank C. Brown Collection of North Carolina Folklore, the game Blind Man's Bluff is as old as the 16th Century. It was a game I never liked playing as a kid. I was always afraid someone would get hurt-namely me! Its one of those games that makes grown-ups yell things like "Somebodys going to…See More

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 oneself vulnerable to…See More

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 likely, that bits and…See 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…

Hi,
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.
