Winslow is a person who enjoys reading and writing. Once a chemist, now retired, no longer constrained by truth or technology. Free to write in any genre, what a blast! Still a sculpted body but alas one quite old. Outdoor activities such as biking and hunting hold his interest. He loves to cook and enjoys wine and good food. Travel is held in high esteem, he has seen some of Europe and South America. German and Spanish he speaks a little, just enough to entice the natives.

When a boy I thought that I could fly, older I think I still could, but adulthood keeps getting in the way.

Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.

Winslow: Dear Member Fanstorians,

I will not be posting or reviewing much in the coming months. I am studying French with Rosetta Stone right now so it is occupying a lot of my time. I wish everyone who reads this have a great rest of spring, the best season of the year.

    waihekebach: How exciting for you. I won't know what on earth you are talking about. Envious, I am, French is a beautiful language. Enjoy.

    Carolyn 12: So how did it work? I have read about the Rosetta Stone but have not known of anyone who has used it. I love French and have a friend who came to the US last year as a new citizen. She will teach me but would like to learn alot on my own as well.

    Jane Johnson: I went to Paris in February 2011. I had lived south of Paris as a child for a couple years. I found the house we lived in in St. Genevieve Du Bois and I was ecstatic! I have enough words to pull me through the visit, but not conversational really. Europe stole my heart and it is still there. My dream is to go back and spend more time. Good luck with Rosetta Stone. Over there, it is music in the air!

    Jane Johnson: I guess I forgot to tell you I love Stillwater, Minnesota. I lived in Little Canada for a couple years. It was a nice area. Lots to do, but Stillwater was really cool!

    Kaine Darcwater: When you told me to re-write my entire posted story, and asked if I understood what you meant in your shown description, I didn't understand. No one else seems to have a problem with it the way it is. I'd try your suggestion if I understood it better.

Winslow: I want to wish everyone on Fanstory a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. May at least some of your dreams come to fruition, may you never have writer's block, and may some of your writings get published.

Warmest regards,

    stephonavich: Winslow,
    My teacher, Les, told me that good writers borrow. Great writers steal. He insisted I steal his idea for a passage in my story. Since then, I have learned from his teachings. You gave it to me, I stole it. Thanks! *giggles down the hall*

    Winslow: Dear Fanstorians,

    I wish everyone on this site a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May God guide your pen in the coming year, may you be inspired to write with passion, with grace, let your mind listen to your muse, for he/she represents your true voice. Pray for peace in the World, let it come into your heart, for we are all brothers and sisters even though we seem different, for down deep we are not.

    Warmest regards,
