Literature

Becoming Jane

I'm not the biggest fan of her books and no I'm not ashamed of "chic lit." (bad term). But she's one of the first woman writers to compete against a male dominated craft. (no i'm not a feminist-- they tend to make things harder for us). Movies about writers are always fascinating because we like to relate to it and dream. I look forward to watching it.  (Jul 19, 2007 | post #1)

Literature

Book Concepts

I enjoyed reading your comments. However, I don't like the chic lit generalizations. How many times are they gonna chop us down into these ridiculous categories? But I guess they always will. FYI-- Never trend. There's one thing you gotta remember as a writer: Don't rush your book out. Someone, somewhere said wait something like ten years. Ever notice the bargain racks? And there's hope for all writers. They will publish complete shit. So when you hear a writer boasting that their book is published, it damn sure doesn't mean that it's any good.  (Jul 9, 2007 | post #14)

Fairfield, IA

American Peace Government

I live in Fairfield so I'll give you the not so "cheery side." I worked in a bookstore cafe for several months. Most of the Tm'ers were not at all friendly, mostly rude. Sometimes you get that with people who think they are in the right--reminds me of certain religous groups. There were a couple, however, that I did like. If you want to know more of TM'ers, you might have to do a little research into their religion (although they don't call it that-- I'm basing that opinion on their Hindu rituals and such). I believe we have to accept everybody and be polite--to an extent. Recently, a farm family is being drove off their century-year old farm because the TM'ers want it for a park. Hope this helps, S.L.

Vedic City officials table vote to pursue land

I can't believe that these farmers are getting the "railroad treatment." What's next? Are we gonna ride out there with our six-shooters and make them get off the land? This is ridiculous. I know if it was the other way around we'd hear about the injustice of it. It's time to stand up to the bullies. - S.L. Harryman, writer, Fairfield, IA.  (Jul 6, 2007 | post #1)
