http://storiesofarchercity.wordpress.com/?page_id=35#comment-3440 Abby is not only a hometown boy, he’s a man who has invested his time and money to help transform Archer City into a literary center. His dedication to this noble cause is above and beyond that of anyone else I know in Archer City. Without the Spur Hotel, we don’t have a writer’s workshop. Without his commitment to transform the ruined Royal Theater into a vibrant community theater, there wouldn’t be a theater. Without Abby, Archer City would never have even crossed my mind as a place that could nurture an artist’s colony. In short, Abby’s perspective is sagacious and his dedication to Archer City is inspiring. Every writer who has participated in the Archer City Writers Workshop over the last decade owes you something that you probably don’t receive very often: a huge thank you. Thank you Abby for all you have done over the last decade to help create a new generation of writers.
–George Getschow, founder, the Archer City Writers Workshop

http://centerandmain.org/?p=1377#comment-2473 As one of the “chosen few” I would say that the Archer City Writers Workshop is more than a coveted class. For me it has been the beginning of my real life as a writer. It’s something none of us who’ve been there can explain. Let’s just call it literary magic. It’s the town, so recognizable from “Last Picture Show” and so far removed from everywhere that even it’s oppressively choking heat is like a breath of fresh air. It’s definitely the people who live there — warm, welcoming and intensely fascinating. And it’s Larry.

Not that I took to him at first… or second… or third. But past that crusty visage is a most amazing and inspiring writer. You see it in the growing pile of used up typewriters lined up behind his work table, a testament to who knows how many words set to paper over a long career. And you hear it, if you listen carefully, when he speaks. He is a writer completely devoted to his craft. Even when he chooses to talk about his life as a bookseller first, you understand his reverence of the written word and respect for the handful of storytellers he deems worthy to be considered major writers. It’s then you really understand that being a writer is the sacrifice of a life to studying the written word and struggling to make your own contributions to the literary legacy. It’s daunting and intimidating work But I realized, in Archer City, that I wanted to be one.

So thank you, Larry, for putting Archer City on the map as a place for storytellers to meet and hone our craft, and where we can immerse ourselves in story by just being around your friends and neighbors. And thank you, in your unique, almost weird way, of steeling my resolve to be a writer. It’s why I spend countless hours in my pain cave, always striving to be better. And it’s why I keep going back to Archer City whenever I can.

Comment on The Bird Lady of Archer City by ecalonius http://centerandmain.org/bird-lady-of-archer-city/#comment-2452 Sat, 18 Jan 2014 22:33:56 +0000 http://centerandmain.org/?p=1328#comment-2452 Kathy writes such clean, linear sentences. I think that’s what makes the rhythm of this story so compelling!
But beyond that, she tells this story with with and great feeling.

Stories are everywhere. It just takes a skilled and empathetic writer to bring them to life. That’s the lesson that Kathy has taught us in The Bird Lady of Archer City.

Kathy Floyd did a great job of making this story relevant on so many levels, capturing the soul of an inspiring woman.

Just behind the new Donna Tartt. So, you know, I may get to it if there is such a thing as reincarnation.

Seriously–I look forward to it

That’s hilarious. Oh, the power of a single consonant in the hands of a master craftsman.

I’ve pulled Flags of Our Fathers from the bookshelf and have it ready for the DQ gathering. Bring one of your many copies of River Season (or bring them all) and we can sign each other’s.

If you’re serious about likin’ them stockings (and I righteously assume you mean on babes!), then maybe your next novel should be a probing examination of the heartbreaking conflict that destroys the longstanding friendship of two women. One of them decides to groom her gams in the approved traditional fashion. The other, who reads liberal magazines at the hairdresser’s, opts to let nature take its course.

You could call it To Shave and Shave Not.

You can quit waving your white hanky, it’s safe to come out now. And not a scratch one, how ’bout that?
Worst case, you probably only lost a book sale or two.

Gotta go. Gonna check to see if Netflix has To Have and Have Not. Can’t seem to shake the image of that skirt and them stockins Kathy alluded to.

Peace.
