Returns: How to Get Published It looks as if I might be co-ordinating the Flash Fiction Fridays program at WUWM if it does, indeed, get off the ground. I love the idea of more writers sharing their short work, and we shall see after I have a chance to meet with the producers at Lake Effect. Thanks again, Stephanie, for your interview and vision. I will be leading a workshop produced by Redbird-Redoak called Flash in the Pan. Check it out, I’d love to have you participate.  The writing Roundtables are also listed at the same site.

An acorn plunks onto the roof, rolling onto the patio. The leaves, ready to turn overnight, await their colorful destiny. A dog barks in the far off distance. A deer? And you? Where will you travel to…this autumn? In your dreams?]]>

  1. What a lucky man to be in France for two entire weeks! Ah, you live the life, mister! It couldn’t happen to a better person. I did have the chance to hear both of your Lake Effect interviews and enjoyed them in their entirety! You have vast knowledge about the creative process and I think many writers will benefit from your words.

  2. Your pieces are all wonderful Robert. I especially enjoyed A,B,C at A-Minor. Did you plan that, the name with that literary site? And your recent trip sounded great, so thrilled that your back held up. We aren’t getting older, we are getting better!

  3. Lucky man, to ride a bike in France? Like Lance Armstrong! Or Contador? Anyhow, your writing is smooth and I really enjoyed your stories and blog. Thanks for posting again.

  4. I was just talking about you last weekend, saying when is Robert going to do another installment. And here you are! Sounds as if your trip brought about many wonderful experiences. Did you get a chance to do any writing while you were in France?
    Nice new work, I enjoyed them all, as I always do. I wish I lived closer so I might consider taking your workshop in October. Best of luck with that.

  5. I lived in France for a year, an exchange program when I was in school. And although it was not near the Loire Valley, I did travel there not long ago. It’s lovely and I’m thrilled that you had the experience of not only Paris, but the countryside as well. And I admire your biking for four days, glad to hear your back held up well. We’re not getting younger, just better, after all! And your writing is really taking off! I wish I had that kind of talent, and I admire yours. Congratulations!

  6. Hey Frenchie! Sounds like a trip of a lifetime. I’m glad you had such an adventure. And your writing is taking off, as it ought to be. Congratulations!
    I agree with Dez, wish I lived close enough to take your course in October. I know you will share great information with whomever is enrolled.

  7. I agree with you, Karen, I want to be Robert in my next life too! What great adventures you have, both in travel and in your writing career. How great that WUWM and those writers in your workshop will experience the magic known simply as Robert Vaughan.

  8. Sounds like you had a wonderful time in France. Living here in South Korea for the past 20 years, I have spent most of my vacation time traveling around Asia.
    I just returned a few weeks ago from Laos where my wife (who is Laotian) and I just finished building our home there. I’ve got some photos on my blog of the house.
    Have enjoyed all your flash fiction and poetic stylings as well as your interview on Lake Effect.
