    Jay & Miles by ColumbusGuy

    Hey, buddy, I just got it. I've had a tough day doing manual labor, and building a headboard, and I'm heading off to bed now. I will try to get to it tomorrow sometime, but I don't know when.

    Story Review: Never Too Late

    Wonderful review, @Timothy M.. I did some beta reading for this story at the beginning, and I loved that @northie was writing a story so real and thought provoking. I knew she had something special in this one. I haven't got back to it since, but it has always been in my plans. Thanks, Tim, for such a wonderful reminder. Maybe after I get back to Soul Music, I will find the time.

    Poem 1

    Great work... evocative. I love "skittering tinkle." Your poem took me to my little section of woods, where I hear laughter and conversations in the nature surrounding me. For me, those sounds heal my wounds. I'm curious... was the book mentioned Outlander?

    I love it, Drew! You're such a handsome young man.

    Food Impostors

    OMG. You are so twisted. I loved it. Creepy, gross, and chilling. A perfect Halloween treat... or is that 'Trick?' Well done, Val... you had me at 'finger.'

    Epiphany... Say, What?!

    I can relate. I bought a new car a year ago, and I was really disappointed when I realized my 'top of the line' radio didn't tell me the name of the song playing, or the artist. It was a little thing, but it made me want to return the car. Another thing I wasn't impressed with was the quality of my back up cam. It looked blurry, but then I just thought, meh, they're probably all like that... until I saw my son's back up cam in his new Jeep. Argghhh. I was pissed. Seriously pissed. It bothered me for a good while, and then one day I thought maybe I needed to wipe it. Yup. That's when I found out it has a protective plastic film over it that is meant to be removed. OMG. Now I could film a movie with it. It was... kind of embarrassing when I told my kids, but they got a good laugh out of it. So, back to my radio. I drove my son to pick up his car after servicing, and I waited outside until I was sure it was ready. I started fiddling with my fancy screen on my dash... I'd done that before... but this time I noticed a 'station information' line... I hadn't realized the screen I was on scrolled down... and yup... presto... my radio turned into the perfect radio, and now I know who the hell is singing... after one year of driving my new car. Epiphanies? Okay... not by others' standards, but big ones for me. I am an old dinosaur in a new world.

    Destiny Begets Destiny

    Hey, Himmin. In one day? Wow! That's awesome. it's nice to hear you were captivated. I'm glad you could see the parallels and observations on society. I don't like to shove that in readers' faces, but I enjoy that combination of telling a story and shining a light on frailties and injustices. In the end, though, this was about love and mystery and adventure. This story was a lot of hard work, and a year and a half of my life, but it contains some of my favorite characters to date, and at some point I plan to revisit them, and Morningstar. I just don't know when. Thank you so much for the wonderful comment... you made my day... leaving a review as well, if you are so moved to, would be much appreciated. It assists other readers in deciding whether to give this story a chance or not. Cheers... and keep in touch... Gary....

    Chapter 53

    And didn't they all have to leave anyway? He sold the ship, right? At any rate, the Captain is too upstanding to put any innocent in clear danger.

    Writing Prompts #710 & #711

    "Did you write a flash piece last week that you want to share? Post a link in the comments!" I started writing something for last week's challenge prompt. I intended to do just a few paragraphs, but scratch that. I am now at 10,000 words and counting. These prompts are dangerous... great... but dangerous. I should be completing my renovations.

    You Meet Your Soulmate In The Strangest Places

    I highly recommend this charming short story. It's clever, quirky, and satisfying.

    Absolutely charming... I thoroughly enjoyed it. The suspense built beautifully, and the payoff was better than I could have hoped for. Well done, Zot! Cheers... Gary....

    On Being a Writer and Encountering Angry Readers

    Well said, Thorn. I also write for myself, but there is an intimacy to posting a story on GA I suspect an author (or reader) doesn't experience otherwise. It has its pitfalls for sure, but I like it, especially how readers get so involved. I have learned a thick skin is sometimes necessary, but overall, I find the serial posting and feedback rewarding. Like you, I am no one's bitch... they can rant and rave all they want... but it won't make me change a thing about my characters or stories. That would infect the feeling of pride and satisfaction writing gives me. Cheers... Gary....
  13. I'm glad you posted this, Wings. It was very touching. Loss is a part of life, but it is never easy. Cheers... Gary....
