"Summer Breaks" -- if the webmaster is not in the way.
... another "service" directory? Don't you have filmplus.org/write ?
"A proverb is a short sentence based on long experience." ~ Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
The page is listed in Yahoo under "A" -- Antohin (my last name). Who? Anatoly, is it you?
It's me. In the directory "Authors"! Wow! Authors! Me?
No, I do not make living by writing, not anymore, like I did in Russia. I teach. Theatre, not writing. And I write. I write for free. Nobody pays me for my daily labor. I pay.
It's okay. I think it's better than fishing (which is nice too). In fact, I paid a lot for it! I lost Russia, now I lost my wife. And I am "unpublished"?
I was 31, when in Rome I defected from myself, the professional Soviet writer. Now I have to be careful, I have no place to defect, I better be careful with what and why I write (I am 52). To write for money? No, not again! My writing is non-commercial fishing. For pleasure.
I am a professor, in America anyone could be a writer. They write books in prison! Writing is cheap. Like thinking. It cost nothing to think.
Maybe I got it wrong in Russia, but look what a real writer has to do in America! You have to sell your books, go on tour, make speeches and lecture, sing the copies... No, I would like be a dead writer! Dead writers we read are good writers. I like to be one of them. But I am not that good. Besides, I write in English, the language I don't really know. I have to ask my kids -- "what, what was that? what is this word?" Somehow they know and I don't.
Sorry, I forgot that I am supposed to introduce the Author, myself.
There are many "write" directories I have; many writing projects I have to complete. So, I place "write directory" in every website -- Theatre, Film, Sellassie and etc.
I try to be organized -- and it's difficult for me.
Read Notes Pages: my recommendations for myself. My plans.
If you about to contact me, use specific GuestBooks and email addresses, so I know what you refer to.
Thanks. Anatoly 2002
WRITE : nonfiction
Summaryantohins.vtheatre.net: one family, one century * Russian
NotesRussian Readers: по-русски страниц не так много, читайте "Век Антохиных". На русском все, что успел за пару месяцев летом 2005.
... I thought that this directory is for my writing projects in Russian... but filmplus.org/write is gone and mostly for chronology [2000-2010]; so, I will use the pages here for notes on my writings projects.
Although, every writing project has its own "notes" page!
Anatoly XXI [write-blog]
2005: Film-North.05Anatoly.com... bloglines.com/blog/anatolant -- another place to hide
Creative or Personal Non-Fiction -- that is what I do. I don't have time to write plays, it's taking away by the Web.
All the directories you see listed at the top are the result of two years of web-labor.
Now I try to switch gears -- I have to finish my books.
WRITE directory @ Tripod (see left frame for index).
The meta-manuscripts are @ Film-North -- and textbooks.
Am I wasting my and your time? Sorry, I didn't mean...

THE BROTHERHOOD (AND SISTERHOOD) OF WRITERS
Work till your ink be dry, and with your tears / Moist it again, and frame some feeling line / That may discover such integrity. --William Shakespeare "The Two Gentlemen of Verona"
Ah, ye nights of the pen! May honour be your shield, and truth tip your lances! Be gentle to all gentle people. Be modest to women. Be tender to children. And as for the Ogre Humbug, out sword and have at him! --William Makepeace Thackeray
"To have something to say is a question of sleepless nights and worry and endless ratiocination of subject - of endless trying to dig out the essential truth, the essential justice. As a first premise you have to develop a conscience and if on top of that you have talent so much the better. But if you have talent without the conscience, you are just one of many thousands of journalists." F. Scott Fitzgerald
"To write is in some way to cut the seemingly automatic pattern to violence, destructiveness and death wish. To write is to put the seeming insignificance of human existence into a different perspective. It is the need, the wish, and please God, the ability, to reorder our physical faith." Alfred Kazin
"Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself. An artist is a creature driven by demons. He doesn't know why they choose him and he's usually too busy to wonder why. He is completely amoral in that he will rob, borrow, beg, or steal from anybody and everybody to get the work done. The writer's only responsibility is to his art." William Faulkner
"He [the writer] must teach himself that the basest of all things is to be afraid; and, teaching himself that, forget it forever, leaving no room in his workshop for anything but the old verities and truths of the heart, the old universal truths lacking which any story is ephemeral and doomed - love and honor and pity and pride and compassion and sacrifice." William Faulkner
I often ask people what is their definition of a "writer." They usually tell me: "Somebody who has published books or articles" or "A person who makes their living by writing." I disagree. I think somebody who writes everyday and looks at the workaday world through the prism of literature and words is a writer. Period. If a person everyday honestly strives to get at the heart of a matter and glean the truth out of the complexity of this world and we human beings through the written word, than that person is a writer, in my opinion. It is a matter of attitude and a way of life, not how you pay your bills or whether you have talent or not. "To sum it all up, if you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling." Ray Bradbury
"You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next." Ray Bradbury
"You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads." Ray Bradbury
"I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime." Ray Bradbury
"I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you." Ray Bradbury
"May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories - science fiction or otherwise." Ray Bradbury
"Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." Ray Bradbury
