I get some really good comments, folks. And I answer a lot of 'em if they're not anonymous.
I got this one this morning in response to "Jan" and my previous confession about the similarities between many of my stories:
"You mention similarities between your stories.
Yeah, so what! I grew up in the middle of the
last century, yep, 1950's. On TV we had Roy
Rogers, Gene Autry, Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy,
Cisco Kid, etc etc. Every show, Bad guy does
deed, good guy catches bad guy, bad guy gets away,
good guy catches bad guy again and gets him into
jail. If you really look close at most any
fiction writers works, there are similarities in
all of them.
There is nothing at all wrong with
your stories and I for one really like them,
always looking forward to next chapter or next
story. Keep up the good work."
Gee! I may just swoon! And to the reader who wrote that, an extra "Thanks" above the thousands of 'thank you' thoughts I have for all you readers.
