Get the true story

If you want to know the real life story behind Chapter 10, now posted at "FarewellBendtheNovel" go to my oldest blog, where you'll find it in detail. That's T.C.Lessons. You'll find the link alongside here at "RememberingTheArgus."

Sorry for the delay

It's clear that my other activities are keeping me from posting chapters of Farewell Bend the novel as promised. I hope to soon begin to cath up --- Larry L. Lynch, 2-23-09.

What was Minidoka?

Since I began preparing my “fictional memoir” for publication 18 months ago, the National Parks Service has significantly improved the information and photos about Minidoka Internment at the national monument’s website. Minidoka was the place many of my classmates in real life were taken after being scooped up from their homes in Western Oregon and Washington at the beginning of World War II. Some of their experiences coming from Minidoka to live in Ontario are dealt with at some length in the novel. But much more information about the entire experience they and their parents went through is available on the web. One place to start, if you are interested, as at the Minidoka National Monument website: http://www.nps.gov/archive/miin/home.htm

To read about classmates from Minidoka follow the Farewell Bend the Novel link on this page. For this chapter, I’ve inserted line spaces between paragraphs because those are longer than elsewhere in the novel. – Larry L. Lynch

Readers will have to do a little work

Making things easy for readers is the job of a good editor. But I want to get Farewell Bend the novel posted at the blog by that name without a lot of work. I should be able to keep up posting a new chapter each day until the end. To do so, I am dropping the job of inserting a line space between paragraphs. Short lines will be your guide. This should enable me to post a new chapter every day. -- Larry L. Lynch

All right, I've been among the missing

It's been a long time since I posted any chapters of Farewell Bend the Novel at the blog by that name. Now I'm going to try to make up for the absence by posting a chapter a day. That should get us through to the end in short order.

-- Larry L. Lynch (Not to be mistaken for Jack Kavanagh, the fictional narrator of his fictional memoir.)
