Comments about Ron Rash

  • Coy_harlingen: ron rash last drafts, i focus on the words, the rub of vowels and consonants, stressed and unstressed syllables. im still often surprised. a different ending or a new character shows up and i'm back to where i began, letting the story happen, just trying to stay out of the way.
  • Pamelamarie1974: my poison ivy rash is popping up from my face to my ankles. the itching is intense right now so i took a mild overdose of benadryl. i made ron promise he wouldn’t break a bone or set the house on fire while i’m in my benadryl coma.
