    New Genre

    Hey, folks,

    Usually, when I publish something having to do with woodworking, I put a link here. But lately, I've started working on fiction, and today had my first story published:

    Lacrymosa, by W.F. Lantry

    No woodworking involved, but you can probably guess the main character is based on Doorlink. Don't worry, the subject matter is within the guidelines of the CofC...

    There are some others in the pipe, which *are* woodworking related. I'll let you know when they come out...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Great read Bill.

    The deceased slept through the whole thing.


    Good one Bill

    I liked the story Bill. I know you wrote it as fiction, but I sense a lot of fact in it.

    Bill that was terrific. Give up what you doing and go into writing. I can see a book of short stories. Entertaining and i guess most of us can relate to the story in some way shape or form. It all happens at weddings too.

    I really like the part about the deceased slept through it.

    Well done, and congrats, Bill. You're on a heck of a roll.

    Uh Rob, writing is what he's been doing for the last year or more. He's getting published with astonishing regularity (primarily poetry), thanks to a very tenacious agent.

    Interesting.
    Does the magazine pay?
    I have a fair collection of finished works I would love to exchange for checks.

    Uh Vaughn...I knew he has been writing but i did not know he was now doing it full time.

    My last understanding was that before he leaves the office each day Doorlink requires that he write a poem and send it to her. Remember the poem a day post.
    Well thats not full time as an author as i suggested

    Ok Bill you gotta spill the beans now and tell us where you at.
    cheers
