Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

Don’t know if I will get this out today . . . certainly, I will miss the East Coast midnight deadline. Such are the perils of time zones. Not even sure what I will delve into . . . stuff … Continue reading
Yesterday’s post touched on the subject of writing longhand. One of the persons who reads my blog e-mailed me regarding my speculation that typing things out “keeps” up with the speed of thought better than writing longhand. She tended to agree, … Continue reading
. . . and I’m still trying to find a voice for my detective story. A plot would be nice as well, but for now I will settle for something that sounds like a detective story. A few people were … Continue reading
I came across a video earlier . . . this 18-years-old disabled kid is playing pranks on people. You can read about it HERE. Something occurred to me; the same thing that occurred to me when the show Scare Tactics was … Continue reading
In 2012 I wrote I did not see the point of NaNoWriMo, as I thought I already had what it took to write a novel. Let me clarify that statement . . . I already knew I could write a 50K … Continue reading
It’s been a while since I’ve done a straight up opinion piece. I started a number of them, and then realized that while I might feel better venting, I was not likely to change anyone’s mind, affect the unfolding of events, … Continue reading
A comment/question at the end of my Torin short story prompted some thinking . . . don’t act all surprised-like! I have been known to occasionally do some thinking. This time the thinking was about writing. Specifically, what I want to … Continue reading
