Author has written 3 stories for Bones.

Thank you, everyone, who reads my work. Due to family circumstances and just being completely exhausted, I often don't respond to reviewers as much as I'd like. If I've not replied to your comment, please know that I very much appreciate the time and effort you took to click that little button. I hope my lack of response won't negatively impact your willingness to click for me or others in the future. A review can be the bright spot that changes a bad day!

I'm just a person in Brooklyn, NY, who loves good writing. Some of my favorite authors are Jane Austen, Robertson Davies, John Irving, and, yes, Robert B. Parker. I love to read, though, so there are probably several dozens more I could add. There are some really good writers on this site, but also some real stinkers; my favorites lists are good reflection of what I'm enjoying now, for the most part. I only recently published my first fan fiction, and I've learned that after publishing, the almost instant gratification of readers and reviews makes it a heady experience. Addictive, really. I welcome constructive criticism--my strength is dialog and characterization, I believe, but my weakness is long-term narrative thread, so suggestions there are always helpful.

Unfortunate Experiences on FF.NET: It's recently been my experience that some writers here are so sensitive about their writing that they do not, in fact, want any feedback. E.g., I recently reviewed a chapter by someone (my *4th* review of her work, the 3 previous being quite complimentary) and told her that I was disappointed--the style and the drawn-out narrative had caused me to lose interest in her story. I said too many everyday little things were being over-written, with too many cliches ("yards of fabric pooled at her feet" = scarf slipping off a neck). Her reply to my review was cold, mildly insulting, and defensive. When I attempted to clarify my feedback--she said "over-written" and "cliched" and "long and boring" weren't specific enough--I found that she had blocked my ability to PM her or post a review with specifics. I looked back at other responses from her; she had only answered one other review, the only one where I had very mildly questioned her narrative choice, and she had lashed out at me. So I should have known better, right? News flash: Actual reviews aren't just pats on the back telling you how wonderful you are. Reviews express how the reader reacts to your piece, both positive and negative. If you just can't handle honesty commentary (even when it's extremely polite), then you need to reconsider posting or turn off reviews or something. Sharing your writing is putting yourself out there, and you need to be solid enough with yourself that you don't lash out at someone who's trying to respond to your work. It's fine to not want criticism, but try to know that about yourself before begging people to give you feedback. Praise isn't the opposite of criticism, but rather a subcategory of it--as any editor should tell you.

1/27/11: As I am now bored out of my skull with the garbage being written by the BONES writing staff, I doubt that I will write anything further with these characters. Despite my best efforts, HH & Company have actually killed my interest in them. Oh, for the brains of the BBC, where they know stories come to an end, and they don't plan to screw as much money and attention as possible out of the audience! Hart Hanson blows.
