JOHN HORN- Legend of a Lumberjack (Book) - 7/13/2005 7:06:11 PM|
You have been very professional in your request for permission to use material from William S Crowe's story and in including the recognition of that background. We appreciate that. I was able to pick up on some phrases and information from Grandfather's story...that was interesting.
I don't know a whole lot about historical fiction but I think one of the keys to success in that genre must be that it is hard for the reader to tell what is "real" and what is fiction. I found that to be the case in John Horn, so I think you have blended those two formats well.
It is obvious you did a lot of research to make the story as authentic as possible...again I think you succeeded.
Thanks for following through on the use of our materials...that is the mark of a real professional writer.

His World (Poetry) - 10/25/2004 4:04:49 AM
just like Humpty Dumpty
spilling both yolk and
that white stuff
the mess thats left behind
from the orgasm of heartbreaking lies
from his world
You took my mind completely away from me when I read this part.
That is such an explosive thought, it's a good thing I had to go no further.
His World (Poetry) - 10/24/2004 11:12:23 PM

it's a shame the things we are forced to say ...
well penned ...
Her Blackened Eyes (Poetry) - 8/27/2004 9:38:47 PM
You have penned a powerful message, Dear Poet! I feel that there are a lot of someones out there suffering shamefully from abuse, while their partners carry on shamelessly behind their disguises. Great composition on a despicable subject. Thank you for sharing this!
Her Blackened Eyes (Poetry) - 8/27/2004 5:44:31 PM
It's a sad situaton. Great write on it though. I wrote a poem for a battered wives and childrens organization out west. If you vist my den It's called Excuse Me. Its desighned to hit hard on a terrible subject. Personally, I'd love to see them all rot in HE**.

Americas Heros (Poetry) - 7/2/2004 3:10:08 AM
Brenda, I just can't imagine what those people went through that day...not only physically but mentally as well. There were just so few that made it out.
This awesome tribute gave me chills..just like the ones I had for months after that day.
Thank You Brenda. Lisa
I Am Knowledge (Poetry) - 7/1/2004 11:25:57 PM
I like it. I like the plain simplicity and the strength.
"I am in you
I am the cog"
are impressive lines.
in the labyrinth of your mind" is nice imagery. Perhaps you could have made it much stronger and much effective by using a little fewer words... Excellent poem anyways...
It quenches my thirst for silent screams from a poet's within.

The Misery of Me (Poetry) - 6/30/2004 3:36:21 AM
"yet it flirts
thoughts that scare
scare me sober"
these lines suggest to me that such a deep emotive state will shake up our sensibilities and percpetions even though they will be overpowered again by those very "deep emotions" ...
The Misery of Me (Poetry) - 6/30/2004 12:58:31 AM
Quite clever Brenda!
The Misery of Me (Poetry) - 6/29/2004 11:52:22 PM

Hey ladie Brenda this is so real that it is almost scary.
Sounds like you had same. well said. splendid
Hearts Destiny (Poetry) - 6/29/2004 8:06:21 PM
Another beautiful poem, so very profound.
"Destiny holds their cards of life
When Fate casually deals their hands
she will be another mans wife"
Destiny and fate can sometimes be so adverse.
Thanks for sharing.

The structure is well formed and flows easily to the reader.
The Dreamcatcher (Poetry) - 6/29/2004 12:41:35 AM
Wonderful poetic execution! The reader is entrapped from the start. Passion's "once-in-a-lifetime chance" resonates. A pleasurable (dare I say?) reread.
