About DLizze
Biography

civil engineer, professional theater and big band musician, and totally new to fiction writing. While an undergrad student, had several articles published in international scholarly journals in geology and in history, but have never published any fictional material. Well - except on here, obviously. Not looking to "hookup" or for relationships. Just looking to interact with other aspiring writers. Oh, and gratuituous online sex - did I mention that? (grin....no, make that .... leer)

Name:
DLizze
Sex:
Male 
Age:
69
Sign:
Libra
Relationship Status:
Single
Orientation:
Bi-curious
Location:
Maryland, United States
Interests:
hydraulics and hydrology (particularly the characteristics and forces involved in movement of surface water); clocks and clock repair; collectible (mostly British) automobiles; 17th and 18th century New England artifacts and history; and - this last probably goes without saying - sex in all its manifestations :-)
Favorite Books:
USA, by John Dos Passos; Superstoe, byWilliam Borden; Trout Fishing In America, by Richard Brautigan; Ulysses, by James Joyce; The Clock Winder, by Anne Tyler; Republic, by Plato; My Life on the Mississippi, by Mark Twain; Beyond The 100th Meridian, by Wallace Stenger; Time Enough For Love, by Robert A Heinlein; MY Secret Garden, by Nancy Friday; and tons of others
Favorite Authors:
It is easier to name least favorite authors than it is to name my favorites. I hated Fenimore Cooper - I found him bombastic and overly detailed. I disliked Theodore Dreiser because he was too impersonal. While I hated Moby Dick, I enjoyed Billy Budd, Foretopman; so the desision is open on Herman Melville. I like James Faulkner, but a little of his work goes a long way; most of it is so depressing. I like James Hawthorne, but suspect that can be ascribed to my interest in New England history, as much as to his writing style. I found Alfred North Whitehead interesting, but not easy reading - especially his treateses on mathematics. I have never read anything by Studs Terkel that I didn't like, but, let's face it: most of his material was "written" by the subjects of his interviews.
Favorite Movies:
The Mighty Quinn; Run, Lola, Run; North Country; The Quiet Man; Rear Window; Matador; The Piano; Schindler's List; Drumline; Brassed Off!; Goldfinger; African Queen; Elizabeth (both Cate Blanchett's and Glenda Jackson's portrayals) ; Philadelphia Story; On Golden Pond; Thelma and Louise; Fried Green Tomatoes; Rainmaker; An Affair To Remember, and its modern take-off, Sleepless in Seattle; The Godfather, I and II, but not so much III;
Favorite Music:
any and all recordings of Pictures at an Exhbition, including Emerson Lake and Palmer's version; Peter Gabriel; WIllie Nelson; Linda Rhonstadt; Glenn MIler; Tommy and JImmy Dorsey (both separately and together); Barbara Streisand; Frank Sinatra; Diana Krall; 10,000 Maniacs; The Clancey Brothers; Bob WIlls and the Texas Playboys; Kathy Mattea; The Beatles; Jefferson Airplane, and Jefferson Starship, especially Blows Against The Empire; Ben Webster; Coleman Hawkins; Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis; Art Tatum; Miles Davis (In his sextet days); Artie Shaw,; Benny Goodman; Mezz Mezzrow; Adrian Rollini; E. Power Biggs; The Mormon Tabernacle Choir; Beverly Sills; Lily Pons; Maria Callas; Billy Holiday; John McCormack; B B King; Les Paul and Mary Ford; Chet Atkins; Steve Warriner; Toby Keith; Brad Paisley; Asleep At The Wheel; Spike Jones; The Alfred Deller Consort; Pro Musica Antigua; Mozart's Woodwind Sonatas, but not his solo piano works; Beethoven's Symphonies, but not his sonatas and concerti; most of JS and CPE Bach's works; Aaron Copeland's orchestral works; Rhapsody In Blue; John Philip Sousa; Karl L King; Bagpipes (both Highland and Ulallian); and I could go on for pages and pages. Suffice it to say I like darned near anything except rap and hip-hop.

Topic: Tact & Diplomacy
Posted: 23 May 2014 17:51



A young Army officer was severely wounded by a blast from a grenade. The the only visible, permanent injury was that both of his ears were amputated, although his hearing was unaffected. Since this didn't affect his ability to function, he remained in the Army.

Many years later he eventually rose to the rank of Major General. He was, however, very sensitive about his appearance. One day he was interviewing three servicemen who were candidates for his headquarters staff.

The first was a Captain, a tactical helicopter pilot, and it was a great interview. At the end of the interview the General asked him, 'Do you notice anything different about me?'

The young officer answered, 'Why, yes, Sir, I couldn't help but notice that you have no ears.'

The general was displeased with his lack of tact and dismissed him.

The second interview was with a Navy Lieutenant, and he was even better. The General then asked him the same question,

'Do you notice anything different about me?' He replied sheepishly,

'Well, sir, you have no ears.' The General dismissed him also.

The third interview was with an old Sergeant Major, an Infantryman and staff-trained NCO.
He was smart, articulate, fit, looked sharp, and seemed to know more than the two officers combined.

The General liked this guy, and went ahead with the same question, 'Do you notice anything different about me?' To his surprise the Sergeant Major said; 'Yes, sir, you're wearing contact lenses.'

The General was very impressed and thought, 'What an incredibly observant NCO.' He asked, 'Sergeant Major, how did you guess I wear contacts?'

'Well, sir,' the soldier replied, 'it's pretty difficult to wear glasses with no fucking ears.'

Topic: Would you or Could you be offended by anything sexual, that your partner asked you to do?
Posted: 08 May 2014 23:16

Offended? Never. But as some have said, I would probably be a little afraid of letting someone too far into my fantasy world, or of admitting some (what I consider to be ) kinky fantasies. I guess what it comes down to is how willing are you t let yourself be vulnerable? BY the time anyone becomes a sexual partner, we know each other well enough, and are comfortable enough together that I like to think I wouldn't feel as if I needed to keep any secrets. So my vulnerability wouldn't scare me so much as the possibility that I am stranger, odder, wilder, kinkier (select whatever word you like) than she, and it would put her off, or worse, ruin the relationship..

Topic: Remembering where you were on 9-11-01.
Posted: 04 May 2014 21:23

My 2 cents I recall thinking when the buildings collapsed that there was something very strange going on.

I am a licensed professional civil engineer. At the time I was working for a structural engineering firm, and even though my expertise is hydraulics and hydrology, I picked up enough structural knowledge along the way to know that (a) aircraft fuel does not burn hot enough to melt steel (high octane aviation fuel has a very low flash point); and, (b) those buildings should not have collapsed from being hit that high above the base.

My first assumption was that the contractor had somehow gotten away with putting far less steel into the buildings than was supposed to have been there, and my second thought was that those buildings were taken down by explosive charges placed at or very near their base.

Topic: Editing Caution
Posted: 17 Apr 2014 19:34

Liz said this, in her post on April 17: "It may seem like a throwaway, thoughtless statement, but you imply favouritism and therefore unfairness. That has never been the case."

I am walking proof of that. I have never received either a Recommended Read or an Editor's Pick award, yet I have been a story verifier for a little over a year now. My writing is not good enough that it should be awarded as outstanding, and I know that. I would be embarrassed to accept an award that implied I was in a class with Jaymal, or Frank_Lee, or LauraLee_sugah, or any of a number of other clearly excellent writers on this site.

I was invited to become a moderator; I did not ask for the position. I accepted because it was an honor, and because I felt I had something in the way of technical ability to offer writers, and because I have a deep respect for the rules on this site. I don't want accolades, or honors, or even special mention when I edit a piece for an aspiring author; it is reward enough to see authors improve because of suggestions I have made to them over the course of reviewing their work. I have had a few thank you notes, and I always try to share them with the other mods; they make our job a little easier, and our day a little brighter.

I DO get a little miffed though, when I feel I or any of my fellow moderators are unduly castigated or vilified. And I get more than a little miffed, when, even after the accusation has been politely denied, the accuser continues to make it, and refuses to apologize.

Topic: Never tolerate the intolerant
Posted: 11 Apr 2014 20:14



It was either Voltaire or Evelyn Beatrice Hall. Can't trust wikipedia 100% on something like this.

Still a very appropriate quote.

I didn't check Wiki - I was quoting from my somewhat untrustworthy memory. On further reflection, I think it may have been either stated or repeated by Benjamin Franklin or Samuel Adams.

Topic: Never tolerate the intolerant
Posted: 10 Apr 2014 20:27

I believe it wasVoltaire who said (I'm paraphrasing) I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

I agree with him. Because of that I may appear to tolerate intolerance. So be it. I have to look in the mirror each morning to shave. I prefer to look at someone whom I like.

Topic: Why is the universe so big?
Posted: 01 Apr 2014 09:13

Not sure if this is what DLizze is referring to, but the obvious reason why the universe is so big is of course that we're so incredibly small.

Actually, I was making a humorous reference to Doug Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide trilogy.

Topic: Why is the universe so big?
Posted: 30 Mar 2014 21:30

I think this is the wrong place to be asking why the universe is so big. If you want the real answer (and NOT just a simplistic 42), you need to go ask the mice.

The Alliterative Assignation

Poppet was a person, not a puppet; that point must be perfectly clear. Feeling not terribly devotional that Palm Sunday, she was perusing porn on her Palm Pilot while she was perched in her pew at the Pineview Pentecostal Chapel. Her perky breasts rose and fell as she watched the scene silently unfold beneath her hymnbook. Her paramour, Peter, perched in the pew next to her, glanced at...

Well. That was interesting, wasn’t it? We’ll play with your little titties again tomorrow. For now, just close your eyes and rest. Did you have a good nappy? Do you need to go potty? Ok.

Carla Buys A House Chapter Two

Carla drummed her fingernails on the desk beside her phone as she wrestled with her conscience. Alice’s message had been clear. The weekend was looming on the horizon, and she and Gerald wanted Carla to come out and play. But Carla‘s memory of Doris’ spanking was still so fresh and vivid. Just thinking of it, she could feel herself beginning to swell, and she needed to open and close her...

Lustful Thoughts in the Computer Age

I often lust for someone Whom I think is pretty neat. And if I were in bed with her I’d nibble on her feet. And then I’d work my way up And lick her on her calf. She’d prob’ly start to giggle And tell me that I’m daft. But I’d keep going northward; Her words I would not heed. I’d stroke on her inner thigh, While I kissed inside her knee. When her breath came...

Carla Buys a House

CHAPTER ONE Ever since they made her a partner, Carla had been toying with the idea of buying a house. On Sundays, she would sit in her bed, with the paper and her coffee, perusing the Real Estate section. On April 14, she got up at her usual late Sunday morning hour of 9, donned her silk kimono robe and padded into the kitchen to make coffee. Maurice was nowhere to be seen, but she knew he...

I love a sexy lady With handcuffed hands and feet. I love to lick and nibble Her place that tastes so sweet. Or tie her wrists and ankles With a strong Hentai bow.

Someone to cuddle To love and to hold To nurse when she’s sick And to warm when she’s cold. To stroke till she ‘d purr Like a nice kitty cat Or we’d sit at the table And just have a long chat. We’d stand at the sink And wash dishes together ...
