I live in the Monadnock Region of New Hampshire where a drive of ten miles in any direction requires going through no more than three traffic lights.  I think out loud, I read, and I write. Some of what I write makes it to this blog. I call it writing out loud.

      You are welcome, took a memoir course locally over the summer. I write creative non-fiction. This fall taking a fiction course from NYU online. It will either encourage me to continue my focus on non-fiction or expand my horizons. Either way it will be of help.

    Thank you for the follow, just know mine is a bilingual poetry blog, so if you get a notice about something written in Italian don’t give up, soon something in English will follow. Blessings and keep up the good work!

      Thank you Irene, we were away from computers today. Will try and follow the rules later in the week.

  6. I love, love creative non-fiction. I just finished reading ‘Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital at Bellevue Hospital by Eric Manheimer. The book is listed as a memoir but with the amount of dialogue and inter-weaving of numerous patients thoughts, it reads much like creative fiction. I’ll be writing a review on it one day soon.
    If you have suggestions for a 14 yr old girls in the area of creative non-fiction I would love to hear about them. It’s her favorite genre and her mother and I scour the bookshelves for something her advanced reading level will enjoy and still take away something delightful.
    I’m looking forward to coming back to your blog and browing around your other posts and read your writing. Thanks for the follow.

      Your welcome on the follow, I love creative non-fiction too. Having said that, I just finished taking a fiction class at NYU and found it very helpful to my creative non-fiction. I may or may not one day write fiction.

    Lovely blog!

    Hi Robert,
    In your blog post about Thomas Moore’s new book, A Religion of One’s Own, the quote by Henry David Thoreau at the beginning of Chapter 6 , starts with, “I find that I conciliate the gods…” Not “consolidate” as you wrote in the post.
    Cheers, Barque

    • fictionfitz April 13, 2014 / 4:43 pm

      Good catch, thanks. Do you know the name of the post? or date? I will correct if I can find it.

    • fictionfitz April 14, 2014 / 10:17 am

      Mission accomplished, thanks for your assistance.

      • Barque April 14, 2014 / 5:49 pm

        Almost, Robert …
        The word is “conciliate”. If you correct the spelling, it will be accomplished.
        Cheers, Barque

      • fictionfitz April 14, 2014 / 6:14 pm

        I am surely making this difficult. Writing from a Kindle, will correct tomorrow.Thanks for your patience.

      • fictionfitz April 15, 2014 / 6:21 am

        To be presumptuous, I think I got it.

  10. marthaschaefer April 23, 2014 / 9:15 am

    Thank you for the follow. I am pleased to find a true “neighbor” and fellow writer/blogger. What a wonderful world we live in that like-minded folks can find and “follow” each other!

    • fictionfitz April 23, 2014 / 9:23 am

      bought your book, will read by July?? I am in the midst of a memoir. Hope to publish through Amazon before year’s end.

      • marthaschaefer April 23, 2014 / 6:33 pm

        Thank you!! I am honored and touched. It is an amazing journey to publish. Always happy to give you my 2 cents and lessons learned. Congrats!!

      • fictionfitz April 23, 2014 / 7:34 pm

        Thanks, will probably follow up

    Thank you for the kindness of reblogging my post. Your site looks lovely and I will return time and time again. Good to meet you! Millie

    I try to hit likes for your posts but not registering for some reason. Am having this problem with about 30% WP blogs I follow. Often have to post comments using FB instead of WP too.

    • fictionfitz July 19, 2014 / 9:35 am

      I have no explanation that would help, but posting a comment is for me a like I like even better. Thanks.

    I nominated your blog for the One Lovely Blog Award. I’m not really sure how this thing works, but the directions are on this link:


    Love your writing, wish I could write out loud. I tend to think too much instead of just writing, and then I lose the inspiration.

    Take care.
