i have been inundated with requests to provide more unsolicited reading material for your empty screens.
what you need, what the world needs, is my blog of new writings to delight, to entertain, or to appall.
i know you are busy and i am busy too, creating a new novel (to be published this century) and yet another non-fiction work, a miscellany of human mirth and misery (to be published in the same century).
because we are all busy people, i propose to save time by using lower case only.
punctuation and grammar will generally be preserved; it takes more time and effort to avoid them than to include them; good habits die hard.
the blog will include stories, the occasional thoughts, snippets of work in progress and some old unpublished material of which i have a high opinion.
the blog will be conducted by my blog-bully, my daughter, who wants a story a week.
i’ll resist the bully and post a blog when i think i have something worth reading.
here is the first blog
i hope you like it as much as i do.
p.s. the mark of a mature writer is one who has gone beyond enjoying polite applause.
i am not too mature for polite applause.
p.p.s. i want to thank my friend, the author and artist Rod Moss, who has kindly allowed me to display his paintings on my blog. See more of his work at http://rodmoss.com/
