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

Newbie to the Site

Hi All,

I'm a newbie to the site. I met Rob Neufeld at the Blue Ridge CC Bookfest and found my way here.

I am amazed it's breadth and depth. It will take me a while to explore all the "rooms".

My reading interests are historical fiction, travel and the culture and contribution of the Ulster-Scots.

I live in Charlotte and am a member of the Charlotte Writer's Club.…

Loved You So



Well dad, how long has it been

since you passed from

us to wherever

it is that we all go?



I’m sorry I couldn’t say the

things that needed saying,

when I know I should have said them

to you while you were still here with us.



I remember all the places

we used to go and the things we used to do;

all the great stuff that I learned

from just listening to you.



If I could travel back in time

So many years ago,… Continue

Rays of the Sun

Weeding out in the yard



Late one afternoon;



Daisies, marigolds, daffodils,



Violently blooming on the threshold of summer.





A warm humid day—the air barely stirring.



Sweat darkening my armpits;



Dripping off my nose.



In the distance…

An Inferior Paradox?



I just finished doing a CNTRL F search for the letter combination ly through six hundred pages of manuscript, a process that took me three days. At each ly, I had to make a

decision, and executing it almost always involved some mousing and

deleting. If I ever write "stared

blankly" or "whispered softly" again, please just shoot me.





I'm working on the second draft of…

A Burning Anger

Little tourist towns way up in the mountains



With fancy-pants cafes and snooty up-scale bistros.



“Come save with us—our prices rolled back!”



Smiling, sweating shop owners chasing the almighty dollar.



While regular, poor folks, willing to work for an honest day’s wages



Fret and starve back up in the hills.…
