Thank you for your support Tony. I’m glad you like everything so far. It has been a journey to get to this point and I may have to change my goal a bit, having missed writing time over the weekend, but am finding it to be very rewarding.
I will look into a movable feast! I’ve found his life to be just as compelling as his writing, and agree with you on its effect. I read a few lines and immediately feel the creative juices flowing. like clams for literature. (Sometimes Viagra)
I’m in love with his writing, and am currently half way through For Whom The Bell Tolls. His sentence structure is magnificent and if you haven’t skimmed it I recommend it to you. Being a war correspondent in the Spanish Civil War, (the setting of the story) he nails the portrayal of the best and worst of men in war. As a veteran, it’s depths beyond what contemporary writers have accomplished. (but then again, it is Hemingway) I see in Robert Jordan, the protagonist, so many of our brothers who went on to places like Triple Canopy, Securitas, and the like after separation.
Thanks again for your response! I look forward to reading more from you as well.
All the best!
