Facing the blank page is the hardest part for any writer. Author, editor, and teacher, David Martin, encourages all of us to remember that "writing of life's experiences brings order to chaos, beauty to existence, and celebration to the mysterious. Hopefully, words connected to actions will make a difference. How can they not? Don't we all need a more positive world to share?" This collection of essays and poems is an example to writers of all ages that our writing can "begin as memories from experiences long past".
This Autumn 2012 Edition is a collection of essays and poetry from writers of all ages.
Mary and Jonathan Gaetan were the essence of elegance. He was a powerful businessman; she was beautiful, sexy, young. Then, in a night of terror, a madman broke into their suburban Washington mansion. When it was over, Jonathan Gaetan lay dead and mutilated in a bathtub of his own blood. Mary told the police nothing about an intruder. Instead, she claimed her husband had killed himself.
"These pages represent the accumulated wisdom of more than thirty years that David Martin has spent as a writer, teacher, editor, and inspiration. Fine Lines (a literary journal) has been his gift to the world, a champion of literacy and lyricism, a 'lighthouse' to countless writers of all ages, from all over the globe, but it is not his only gift. In this collection of his writing, Martin invites us to see the world through his attentive eyes, bearing witness to what endures, what matters: a mother's love, the flicker of a firefly, the mystery of a dream, a beloved teacher, a triumphant student, the power of myth, and most of all, the written word. Inside his vision, readers are shown the richness, challenges, and rewards of the individual's effort to write, as he says, 'my own internal rhythms and play my own tunes.' This book is a song, a gift, in which we can all take pleasure." -Dr. John Price, Department of English, University of Nebraska at Omaha
