    This lengthy 39 page adolescent courtship story is written by a fine writer who captures the country lingo of farm country. Let the words speak for themselves: "grass green...coals of love...from the future...weren't wivin'...promises unkept...ground into soap...then let the heart speak...who wants nothin'...to do with you...shoulda thought this one through better." Don't... read

    Filmfamman can throw a good fast ball and create excellent metaphors/similes/analogies. He takes the reader into deep space and picks up the sounds of rock n roll from the Earth. Fats Domino for one...and Eddie Cochran "Summertime Blues." "You're too young to vote." Most errata are trivial, but clean 'em, writer. According to the plastic Quick Study.com guide: quotation marks... read

    "Unemployed" is a weak story written as a screenplay. It is essentially a cynical joke...but these recessionary times deserve cynicism on behalf of the unemployed. It looks like the writer will apply the same technique to "racism" in Part 2. Errata: too many grammatical/spelling errors to list, but here are some. Capitalize letters at the beginning of sentences. missing commas... read

    Hello James, you reviewed my short story, Scorching, a while back and seemed to enjoy it with some personal exceptions. I've since expanded it into a novel and in so doing have tried to keep in mind various points made by reviewers of the short story. The novel is now available on Amazon as a Kindle, under the title, Scorched. You enjoyed the short, I think you'll be very pleased with the novel. I have an email address on the second page, feel free to drop me a note if you give it a read.

    Dear Professor:

    Thanks so much for the wonderful comments on my rough draft of Alligator! An in depth background that answers all your questions can be found in the Notes section of said story, but to sum up: I was watching the History Channel (which I have nicknamed the Hitler Channel) and this little blurb came up that mentioned that there was a short period in history, often overlooked, where the Royal Navy dressed as women to trick the U-boats into coming close enough so that they could blow them out of the water. I laughed and thought, "Now THAT would make for a great short story!" A little later on, while brushing my teeth, I compared it to the alligator hunter on the lake I used to live on in Sanford, Florida. He used to trick the bull gators into thinking that a boombox was a lonely lady and the rest of the story practically wrote itself. It was a fun idea and with a little retooling, I think I might shop it around. Again, thanks so much for the read! ~Tisha
