|Very Nearly The Beginning... by Grey Wonderer||8 Review(s)|
|Lindelea||Reviewed Chapter: Prologue on 6/30/2008|
|So sorry to hear about the writers block. Know how that goes.|
Am very busy at the moment and don't even have time, really, to read the story proper but when I saw the word Prologue in the chapter alert I found I absolutely had to stop in and leave a note.
Have put the story on my "want to read" list for later. (Will this durn schedule puh-lease slow down????)
Off again at a run,
Author Reply: Hello there! Glad you could stop in for a sec. Good to hear from you and I do know how busy you are. Fortunately the writer's block seems only to apply to the prologues so at least there is hope for the rest of my writing *IF* I find time to do any writing. Like you, I seem to be going in all directions at once. Thanks for the prologue review!

|Actually, it's nice, creative prologue :-)|
Author Reply: Thank you. For some reason it seemed rather off to me. Who knows?

|Not entertaining? Give me a break! You always write a great prologue...most anxious to see how elements from The Velveteen Rabbit (one of my faves) fit in. Hugs to you, Neilia|
Author Reply: Why thank you. And another Velveteen Rabbit fan! I just love that book. The bit from the book just worked its way in so easily because that book is part of my own childhood. Hope you like it.

|Well you know I never even ask for directions, let alone follow them. It's why I get lost a lot. Also, I've never met or been introduced to the Velveteen rabbit so, if he's not already, he can get stuffed.|
The prologue overall was amusing in its impertinence and for that reason warrented a second read, together with a prolonged chuckle. I dread to think what might happen if you reignite your creativity - a very nasty conflagration I should think. I'm standing well back.
Author Reply: The title of this prologue would have only served to make me read it just to see why I wasn't supposed to do so. (Clever of the writer, wasn't it?) I'm thinking of calling my next fiction: "Don't Read This No Matter What!" You can do the beta because I know now that you'll just go ahead and read it anyway.
If I recover I promise to warn you so that you have time to get as far away as possible. I am glad you enjoyed the prologue and I do thank you all of your help with this.
Your encouragement went a loooong way toward getting this written.
Oh, and the Velveteen Rabbit was a bit stuffy.

|Well, of course I didn't follow the directions ;-)|
And I found this disclaimer and prologue very creative, so no need of strong medications!
Now on to the story :)
Author Reply: Somehow I didn't think you'd follow the directions. You read no matter what and I am very pleased about that. Hope you enjoy the story!

|Oh, I'm so glad to get more information on our beloved Errol! Love the non-creative creativity of the prologue! And I don't listen either, do I? Heh!|
Author Reply: Personally, I only hear the voices inside of my head. Listening can be over-rated. Hope you enjoy the story.

|Get well soon, dear GW! I understand that large quantities of poached fish will help stimulate creativity. That's what I've heard, though I haven't actually tried it myself. But it might help.|
Oh, but I have baked fresh, fudgy brownies. That should help, shouldn't it?
Hugs and brownies,
Author Reply: I want the brownies. I think I can be well again if I have lots and lots of brownies. As to the poached fish, well...pass the brownies will you, Mum?

|I thought it was as entertaining as ever! And very clever, too! But, yeah, wicked taskmasters and OT have a way of wreaking havoc on my Muse, too. Btw...with the exception of one instance, Elves are not found in any of my stories, either. :-P On to the story! :-)|
Author Reply: So glad you enjoyed my prologue. I am certain that Elf people everywhere are tearing out their hair and wailing just at the thought of this but I had to do it. Errol insisted and someone we know mentioned stickses!
Thank goodness Llinos knew a thing or two about what elves might say or I'd have been in very big trouble! Until now the only Elf I've written seriously was Legolas. You and I have to get out more.
