It's not surprising to find that your fictional writing is just as warm, insightful, and full of character as the rest of your work, but it sure is nice to have that suspicion confirmed.


Nice, Lance.

This is good - you should be paid for this.


There's more, isn't there? Do we get to read the rest? I really want to read it, lots more than clomping off to a photography show which is where we're headed. Have a great time in Cape Cod. Give us a little more of the story, day by day. grasshopper


Very nice. You have an extraordinary talent for creating a compelling sense of place.

But, um..."bearded clammer"? Just, no.


An handed gentleness and frankness.


Thanks very much, folks. I think I'll post another excerpt or two later in the week.


Good, keep the excerpts coming. You can string us along like Dickens.
