    Nonsense! You are too good of a writer. You will not quit writing. I will not allow it.

    Nor will I Brandon! Out of the bloody question. We'll have no more of this bullshit. Remember, every single person on this forum is on the same path. Some have maneuvered most of the tricky curves (or think they have) and see clear road ahead. Some of us--me most of the time--are frantically gearing down to get through a series of murderous twists and turns that would terrify a Lesser Writer. And that ain't me. I know a Nobel or a Pullet Sir or at least a Governor-General's Medal awaits me--just as soon as these idiots who hand out awards realize the huge error they're making in sending me their stupid Declines. It is just as easy to get yourself into THAT kind of mindset as it is to sit by the path mopping your face. C'mon m'man--grab those bootstraps and yank firmly upward. If you get momentarily off-balance . . . . .that's why we're here.

    'Ima' -- meaning "I'm going to..."

    'Prolly' -- for probably

    True story: Last week my mail carrier told me, "Ima prolly be on vacation next week."

    Don't worry. They'll never find the body.
    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence : Simon & Garfunkel


    Those who enjoy stirring the chamber-pot should be required to lick the spoon.

    Our job as writers is to make readers dream, to infiltrate their minds with our words and create a new reality; a reality not theirs, and not ours, but a new, unique combination of both.
