  1. Oh yeah, I have come to hate the 'F' bomb with a purple passion. They think they have to fill movies with it now. But I think its the world gradually sinking into the abyss.
  2. I'm guessing I write because I had some kind of deep seated need to do so. I do know that I have felt more fulfilled within myself since I did it. A better question might be "Why did I publish it?" Again, I'm guessing that I wanted to share it with others. Certainly not for the money, but it brought joy to me when others read my stories and enjoyed them.
  3. I've toying with the idea of writing one more post apocalyptic. This one would be with the rapture theme. Of course every time I say I'm going to write something, I never do. Maybe I should say I'm not going to write something, then maybe I'll write it.
  4. I would have liked to go to DC for the prayer march, but too old, too far, and too broke, but I was here in prayer that day. I saw on youtube where some were rejoicing that the church was shut down. Ha!
  5. I would imagine it affected their imagination Meaning they might hallucinate or go crazy? Those too, """" Sometimes while I'm writing I feel like some old Doc has loaded me up on opium.
  6. In that time period doctors could practice whether they knew anything or not. Most meds of the time could kill as quickly as help. If a patient was given medicine, I would imagine it affected their imagination more that it cured. Lots of room there for uncertainty to build up in the story. Even now it's awful to be shot. Back then the chances for infection was five fold. Hope that helps.
  7. My wife would agree with that. When I get tired, I can get a little cranky,but its usually not the time to crank. Oh, you were talking about writing!
  8. I wrote one story, not exactly time travel, but concerning the speed of light. The idea was that if we travel out into space at above the speed of light, what would the earth be like when we got back? Really I was just exploring the idea of writing just a little science fiction. You can look it up, the story is free to read. Ok, I'm not supposed to do this but its called One Drop In Time.
  9. As a short story writer of course I come at everything like a race horse just out the gate, and in that situation there is no room for much telling. That said, I like to read 1000 page books, and I can trot along if they get a little long winded, might even go along at a slow walk,but never ever try to make up for bad story telling with flowery prose.
  10. A tale of injustice in the early south.
