Willows Wept Review

5. Willows Wept Review redux.

14. Selecting and arranging stories is an intentional and deliberate process, but it has to be done in such a way that the collection feels cohesive, even seamless.


Dear Darth Vader,

Vader, I love you & think you are a total badass, but when you lost Padme and yelled NOOO!  Yah, that was super lame. You are supposed to be a person filled with anger & evil, not love and compassion. You really let me down with that NO. In fact, you did not only let me down, but you let all of us down, all of us Star Wars fans. Next time, be a little bit more of an evil badass, not a pretty princess.

Yours Truly, Simón Gutkin

4. An odd and lovely collection of facial expressions in literature.

Face had fallen like a waffle —Frank O’Hara

A gentle, cowlike expression passed over her face like a cloud –Colette

Had a face like a requiem —Honoré de Balzac

Reap the Willow Weep


9 new winter themed additions have been added to the Willows Wept Review. I am not usually a fan of themes. To me themed writing feels contrived and meaningless kind of like a forced shit after eating too much cheese.

I read all the posted pieces . Nothing felt contrived. Everything was vibrant.

Specifically this piece by Brandi Wells:

January 6, 1998

I’m ending the post on a high note. There is no where else to go from here.
