I missed being on the mountain this year. (You can't imagine how much!) I had family issues I had to deal with this year, so couldn't get away this summer. Boy, do I need a vacation. I hope you've been finding time for your writing along with this huge project you've undertaken.
Hey nice to be here. Wherever here is? I'm a big fan of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Remarque (All's Quiet on Western Front), Sherwood Anderson, Thomas Wolf, Sinclair Lewis. Hopefully I didn't forget anyone. I'd apoligize to them personally but then I guess there's no need.
Glad to hear from you Les. I hope to get to Wildacres for Fall Gathering. Are you and Susan coming up? I'll forward a photo soon although The one you have for me is most becoming. See you soon.... Jules
Dude, thanks, and we've just begun! Seriously, I appreciate the feedback. We'll be adding more and more videos over time, plus groups and forums and such. Feel free to invite some friends -- especially writer friends. All the best, Les
Thanks, Les. This is a great idea. I will upload some photos in due course. I'm looking forward to participating and just enjoying what the site has to offer. Cheers, Lois

Dear Les, Susan,
Life is treating me about the same as I treat it, as has long been the case. Betty, however, had to get a new knee in July and only this week has she begun to be free of pain and to be a bit more mobile. Hannah was merciful when she came through Washington, NC and did not damage our boat, thank God. That's about it since Wildacres. We hope all goes well at your house.
Hi, Les. Sorry not to write or call before now. My aunt that I look after broke her hip a few weeks ago, and that has occupied so much of my time. Maybe I can call you tonight after I visit her this afternoon.
You can send a note about writenow.tv to the Maryland Writer's Association's e-newswire. I think that will get the word out to many writers in my area. The person to contact is Kim Williams. She can be reached at email@example.com. Tell her I suggested you contact her. This is exactly the type of project our association likes to promote. I can also have some announcements made at our meetings. Also, my husband and I are going to be participating in the Baltimore Book Festival in a couple of weeks. If you have pdfs of any written material, we can hand copies of those out there.
Another question, Les: How does one go about getting a book listed in the Bookbed? The anthology "New Lines From The Old Line State: An Anthology of Maryland Writers" is now available on Amazon (and includes some of my writing). It would be wonderful to have it included on this site.
I like how the site is coming along, the videos seem very helpful.
I am going to try to start writing more often. ^_^
Like for pleasure, cause you gotta have a dream, cause maybe one day it could come true.
Could you tell me if I need to take, or add to, my profile page? I don't know if it is good enough yet.......
I'm gonna say novels by default. When I write poetry and short stories I usually end up feeling dissatisfied - there's so much more that you can put into a novel. A lot is to do with genre as well, I don't think I could bring myself to write a fantasy short story. Also, novels call for illustrations and I love doing them too!
Hey Uncle Les.... I FINALLY uploaded a picture.... But I remodeled it and made it different, I posted the remodeled one on this comment.. Which should I use?? The one with my friend and me? Or the remodeled one?? Thanks, Justin
PS: See you at New Years!

Byung-Chul Han argues that love, sex, and even theory are disappearing in consumer cultures because our systems of finances and behaviors erode the Other in favor of sameness.
Late night TV in the US often has commercials for telephone party lines. One that airs frequently in my market has a young blond woman who is home and does not want to go out to meet men. Her presentation is always sexualized with brightly painted pouty lips, a body-hugging mini-dress, and a welcoming expression on her face. The narrator promises that she can skip the bars if she just calls, and she can be…
