If Dirk had never been an actor and I had no idea what he looks like etc..I'd want to read his work. It's not only superb in terms of writing skill but in terms of subject matter. I love Ray Bradbury's short stories. They are stunningly well written. Dirk has that skill.
Genny, you seem to know what I am thinking and put it into words for me. I am not much of a reader so if I do read something then it must be good. And the way Dirk has put this subject over, his writing is amazing! I want to read more from Dirk. He engages, keeps the attention and has a good point to get across.
I am one of those people who could not kill my food. In fact, I couldn't even eat something that still had the shape of the animal. Example, a whole chicken - I couldn't cook it, I couldn't carve it and I couldn't eat it if it still resembled the bird. I being veggie, will never have to kill my food (apart from fish - lol!).
I want to say a BIG thank you to Dirk for setting me on the right path. I'm sitll going and I can feel the benefits.
And I wish I could write like Dirk too. But an even bigger wish is that I get to read more wonderful Dirk writings *hint hint*
