...Hot Summer Nights is out May ’10. Dianne lives in Cincinnati with her two cats and will do just about anything to get out of housework.
Thank you for this interview, Dianne. Can you tell us a little about yourself and how long you’ve been writing?
Hi, Broowaha. It’s great being here. I’ve been writing for fifteen years and it’s been a heck of a ride. I’ve met the most amazing readers and authors and many have become life-long friends. I cannot imagine a job more fun than writing.
Do you write full-time?... (more)
...Haunted By The Past, And What Of Your Precious Marriage Vows?, She Must Be In Denial!, Flip Flop Rers Among Us, James K. Olson and It Is The Hour To Be Drunken! Charles Harmison wrote We are supposed to be friends to cristogianni. He wrote that in expectation that a Friend on Broowaha was exactly that, a friend. These stories are about betrayal and its effect on the one betrayed. That effect can leave the betrayed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Well folks greetings once again. It has been just over two years since I have tossed a few words onto the Broowaha communities' pages and since that time a great deal has changed here in Broowaha as well as everywhere else around me. I have been away from Broowaha and writing in public for that matter for a number of reasons I won't go into too much. But I felt that given the fervor in the US over healthcare reform it was high time I came out of hiding and once again offered up a few hundred words on the state of things as I see them in the country I call home.

The article in question is here.
So what are you trying to say with your rating? You didn't like my article? Why? Because of who wrote it? Because it dared to take a look at racism in America? Because it laid the responsibility at the feet of those who deserved it? Maybe it was slightly biased in favor of the police report, but in light of events that have transpired since then, perhaps this is a case where the police were telling the truth? I mean, even Obama admitted he made a mistake there (even though he stopped short of actually apologizing for it).
No, I think the... (more)
Anyone that has been in the Broowaha community long enough will know and has interacted with Morgana. She is a wonderful force of nature and has herself been the topic of articles. In this featured contributor interview she recalls (as do I) when she first came on the scene and asked for a Reno chapter of Broowaha. Since then Morgana has helped turn the Reno Broowaha into an active hub of conversation.
How does where you live influence who/what you write about and how you go about doing it?That's a fitting question because landscape itself has a part in knitting people together.... (more)
Of late I have been finding that there is a broad range of approaches to submitting pieces on the Broowaha, and surely this is as it should be -- as our writers come from all over the world, and came to this forum, this thing, this Broo via many different roads and for many different reasons. Our ideas and beliefs are vastly diverse -- something that is visible not only in the articles themselves, but sometimes too in the vehement debates that follow, in comment form, at the bottom of some of the articles.
In response to some recent pieces I have found myself thinking critically about... (more)
...I wrote back. “I like your picture too. I have many likes and dislikes, but to get right to the point, I enjoy all of the same things you listed in your profile. Wanna meet and talk about it in person?”
Max wrote me back on a Thursday.
“John! Is this YOU? (http://www.broowaha.com/article.php?id=4692) Ha! You’re so funny! I like this writing. I didn‘t know you write.”
“Yes”, I replied. “I listed writing as one of my interests. What a coincidence that you found this. So we read the same zines, hunh? That’s another thing we have in common. Wanna... (more)
...What better way to get attention than fund real, quality investigative journalism that will likely get picked up somewhere, because let’s face it, media outlets need investigative journalism but can’t afford it nowadays, particularly on the local level.
As for how this relates to BrooWaha, I think they’re complimentary. Because, really, who here does real investigative journalism? Nobody. We write for pleasure and exposure. If we do write about local and national issues, it’s mostly opining based on the dwindling investigative journalism output by dwindling... (more)
...Broadway play in a downtown loft, on a Friday night, and watch young performers passionately hone their craft, inspiration is everywhere, that's the main reason why almost everyone living in this incredible city, is from someplace else, and there aren't many cities that can claim that. Your Broowaha picture, is there a story behind it? What are you doing/reading? That's an insightful question, and no one has ever asked me about that before, and there is indeed a history to that photo. Some of your readers may or may not know that I'm a published author and that photo was taken at my first ... (more)
One of the best things about Broowaha—aside from it giving you more hits than your blog—is that it’s got enough clout to get you on Google. And make it to the top of a somewhat common search, and interesting things can happen. My last article, The Unspoken Rules Of Group Conversation: Learn Them Or Bore, was a fun example.While checking hits on the article, I noticed it’d been linked (my favorite Broo feature). The link turned out to be from a NYC Craigslist post. Wha? The post turned out to be from ‘The Brooklyn Conversational Soiree’, a group trying to organize in-person group conversations... (more)
