Dreamtime yarn about the rainbird (Short Story) - 5/9/2008 4:12:43 PM
I thought that this was a terriffic yarn to use with primary aged children. I was looking for an Indigenous story that I could use in a Creative Arts Lesson. My overall Lesson theme is 'Colour and Feelings' I choose this yarn because it relates the Indigenous culture and this is incorporated with the feelings of the birds and of course lots of colour. I did not want to use the yarn until I had emailed Gary, and thankyou Gary it is now in my lesson plan. I have used it for the Creative Art form of Dance and have planned for the students to intepret the story thorough dance with colourful ribbons. I do feel the story is abit long for one session so therefore would read it over a couple of days to build anticipation. I came back to this site so I could reference it and say Charlies comment I totally agree Good luck with your story writing Gary. regards Helen

I love this! Cut out the "bloody"'s, and again, highly publishable in a children's book format. I absolutely love the slight bushman lingo in this. It positively sings. It's great! You really have a gift. Keep writing. --Charlie

Dreamtime yarn about the rainbird (Short Story) - 4/1/2008 4:47:01 AM
First off, Garry, this is a beautiful story-- an important one-- a fable, and I think, shortened up a bit, it would make one excellent children's book. I don't know what parts you could edit out, but think on it. Great children's books are hard to come by. It would also make a fabulous dance for young people. Could you imagine how beautiful that would be choriographed? Also, in rereading it, I decided I loved the voice of old Yinnaar at the end. What do you think about beginning the story with her voice as well, and fading it out into modern English? I think that would give me chills. Anyhow, if you can weed it down to just a few pages, then let's talk about an illustrator and and editor/publisher. What do you think? --Charlie

The time before time (Poetry) - 3/30/2008 2:26:02 PM
Again, some important points brought up. Great topic for a great write. Check out Axilea Uzumcuoglu's "When"...along the same vein as this poem, she explores time and place, and whether or not we're better off for all the modernization of society. WELCOME TO AD!!!! --Charlie

The Predation of the nation (Poetry) - 3/30/2008 2:23:04 PM
--words that sob here... a powerful write, like a chant. And some good questions asked. I think you'd like the writings of manny moreno, a Native American poet here at AD. I hope you find a lot of writers here to befriend. I like your enCHANTING style. --Charlie
