    If you could have a conversation with an author of your choice (dead or alive), who would it be? And what would you talk about?​

    I would most definetely want to chat with the said Shakespear just to check that he/she actually existed.

    L. Lee Lowe. I'd talk with L. Lee Lowe about whatever came up in conversation. It'd just be an ordinary conversation.

    What? Why would Shakespeare not exist?

    Shakespear existed. The question is if he actually wrote anything or had some other guy wrote it for him.

    Can you both please start spelling his name correctly? It's Shakespeare. With an 'e' on the end.

    It crossed my mind that ShakespearE is a group of people and not just one person.
    I did notice changes of styles from one work to another and made me think maybe that was the case.

    That is one possiblity.
    My own conspiarcy theory is this: Was he one or was more then one person?

    Cacian was surely indulging in the happy, inveterate activity of spelling the Bard's name as she bloody well pleases. An activity which Shakespeare, too, indulged in.

    WD was joining her in the fun, or, knowing that pedantry is tiresome and unbecoming, thought it inappropriate to place the 'correct' spelling so close to the 'incorrect'.

    This thread is depressing...a dull question becomes a dull discussion about a moronic conspiracy theory...we're writers, dammit, someone start a genuinely interesting thread so we can put an end to this shit.

    Nah, it's all Christian and New Age-y, more or less uplifting if you really think about it. But it's beautiful in that way that can only be resolved in despair, so yeah, you may end up a little suicidey...

    I'd probably want to talk with the poet Robinson Jeffers. I'd want to discuss poetic technique, vision, and the inspiration nature gives.

    I'm going to go a little out of the box here and say Jim Morrison.

    And I don't think there would be much time for talking (ha)

    actually, in his lifetime, in his own hand, he spelled it many different ways himself.
