I mean this. Do you? If so, maybe we can be friends, and help each other. Twenty-plus years experience writing (mostly prose). Aging but not fading. Gen-Xer. Lots of angst. Lots of pain. But lots of hope, too, and love of beauty. If you comment or critique, please don't bother with anything positive. Chances are, I already know the good in my work. It's the shortcomings I would like help with. Point them out, and do it intelligently, but with no empathy for me as an artist? You'll get major points in response. The more valuable your suggestion? The more points. So go ahead, do your best to gut what I write.
