Comment on The Writing Lobe by Greg ../the-writing-lobe/#comment-90435 Thu, 14 Apr 2016 08:30:08 +0000 ../?p=5791#comment-90435 Wow!
I’m not sure what else to say about this one, it feels as if you’ve laid your writers soul completely bare. There’s an element of wonder to the tone of this story that, I think, relates perfectly to a great many writers the world over. At the same time, you’ve included a very personal note to the story in describing your school years and the book readings you attended.
Well done!
Keep it up and good luck, may your keyboard keys never stick and your pens and pencils never waver.
G.

Comment on The Writing Lobe by alana ../the-writing-lobe/#comment-90433 Wed, 13 Apr 2016 19:39:17 +0000 ../?p=5791#comment-90433 I’m about to enter my first writing comp and so super nervous about how it’s going to be received. It’s almost created a writers block, which I’m happy to say, has almost disintegrated after reading this. I really enjoyed your journal entry!

Thank you and congrats on your win!….Here is hoping I may inspire someone too someday!

You clearly have a serious case of untapped talents which requires immediate attention! Writing more is the only treatment available at this time.
This is a very inspiring story and so true! Now to quote a favourite film, “Live long and Prosper.”
