Okay, I think I have it figured out. My apologies to those who have met with resistance trying to post comments to my blog. It appears that what I've been doing after posting my entry, is closing my browser window instead of logging off AOL first. Please do me a favor and try this experiment: I will now save this entry and log off of AOL. Would you please try posting a comment to this entry and see if it works? That way we can hopefully rule out any other reason why people who wish to comment have met with no success. Thanks mucho! Have a great Labor Day everyone!
Welcome to Blank Space. In art, blank space is negative space. In writing, blank space exists between the lines of printed text (the black space). It is the unique perspective that a reader brings to the work; what the reader experiences in a work of fiction that may not be set down explicitly on the page. A work containing blank space has no overlong exposition, backstory or explanation. It is simple, direct and active.
Michael Hacker writes fiction, is a former stage actor and director, is interested in all forms of storytelling both character and plot-driven, loves to discuss philosophy, ethics and psychology, and criminal psychopathology. He is interested in crime and the legal system. He loves computers, but as an end-user. Mike's overall philosphy is stoic acceptance that mixes Christianity with the philosophy of Epictetus.
