Re: The Door

I got "Dante" right off the bat.

Nice job on a first Drabble.

It's been awhile since I've been a poster of notoriety, but if you search back I bet you can find stranger ones. (Strawman will back me up on that. We're two of the usual suspects who always get dragged in for questioning.)

Re: Dear Francis

From a grammar perspective I already note some problems with shifting 1st, 2nd, 3rd person perspectives. (The perils of composition during early morning insomnia.) I've never claimed that I'm different from any other writer in my need for a good editor. Perhaps some such soul with the fortitude for ...

Not quite all.

One village of indominatle Gauls holds out against the Romans, led by the hero of our story, Asterix, and his constant companion, Obelix.

Re: self-searching

Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres. In print, and embedded in the brain cells of adolescents. ROU, when will your latin edition be available? I actually worry quite a bit that my desire to tell my story could easily be another case of over-optimism mixed with delusions of grandeur that it would...

Dear Francis

The decades of psychologically imposed silence followed by the years of legally required silence have come to an end and I am free to speak. I've always felt my autobiographical writing is where my voice finds its most honest expression, as much as I desired to excel as a writer of fiction. I sent t...

Re: self-searching

I can only imagine the thrill that comes with actually getting a story (as opposed to a drabble or twabble) accepted for the august halls of The Drabblecast. August is Lovecraft, for whom the thrill is gone. But the September halls are available. Seriously, if I'd known how awesome episode 340 was ...

Okay. But part of that problem is his Notorious Forum Hoggedness. He probably remembers which ones were used, so he can find the post date and check the show for that period.

self-searching

No, I'm not trying to "find myself" in any sort of spiritual or metaphysical way, but I am looking for the episodes that my drabbles and twabbles appeared in. When I searched the main DC page for "Lidster" it did bring up my first appearance where "Yarn" appeared, but not any of the other ones. (I'm...

I'm going to passover a twabble about the Vatican. I think I should try for comedy that's a few shades lighter than Ebony.
