Coming East

Looking forward to the excerpts! Your blog is on my blogroll. I enjoy it immensely.


Oh, boy, I can't wait!


Hi, I really like your blog which inspires me a lot. Thank you. Lucie from France

I love this idea of polishing blog posts into a coherent whole. I've thought of that myself and assembled a couple of e-volumes for use in classes I've taught. Lead the way!

Barbara Force

I think you have a great idea and I can hardly wait!


I can't wait to read excerpts from your book. I love the title!

Loren Stephens

Oh boy. Can't wait to read these observations. Hope there is a section on rewriting which is where I am at in my novel. Just waiting for my first readers to give comments. Good way to postpone getting back into the material. Looking forward to the retreat. Regards, Loren

Sharon Bray

Fabulous...and I love the title!


All of you - Thanks so much for this encouragement. It is so very much appreciated.


In the literary community I know, Dangerous Writing is already a familiar term coined by Tom Spanbauer. Maybe you know that?



Remembarance day is the day we commemarate the men and boys who fohugt for us. The 1st world war lasted from 1914 to 1918, so that war lasted 4 years.The year after they had been burid poppies, red poppies started to grow on thier graves. Thats why poppies are the symbol of remembarance day.If you were 10 to 60 then you had to fight in the first world war, if you were over 60 you would warn people about bombs. If you were younger than 10 you would be sent away from your parents. Thats the end goodbye.
