This is my little Lexie, a chihuahua mix who is tiny but so sweet. Here she is trying to sleep under my pillows. She is a burrower. Makes a great watch dog because she has a fierce bark.

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

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.
