I Don't Like You!

In my last go around in this blog, I talked about how much I had disliked a friends work... which leads me to people who dislike my work.

Learn By Doing

I ran into a lady who fancies herself a writer and she asked me to read something she had recently written. Wow. B-O-R-I-N-G!!!! Not a single sentence in her story could keep me awake on an otherwise sleepless night. I didn't tell her that but I did ask her her background in the story line and she...

Kabu congratulated me on being a successful writer but as I explained in the comments, if you consider working constantly and consistently for the last 46+ years an 'overnight success,' I'm your guy! I began to pitch my stuff to Redbook,Readers Digest, and any number of lurid pulp magazines back... Sign in to see full entry.

Bugs Bunny Had An Agenda... and So Do I!

As most of you that read my babbling here know, I post a lot of stuff on Amazon for sale. I did a little free promoting on Amazon (they do have some really neat options which is why they probably get such a big cut of your earnings) and managed to sell over 150 (combined) copies of "The Darkness"...

Finally!

I finally have my publishing website redone to the point I dare release it to you! I have to make the 'buy' landing pages for the physical books I have in print and for the CD's of audio books.

Writing and Taping

Somewhere here on Blogit, I've mentioned that I was asked to do a short story for kids ~10 to 15 years old about parents that yell all the time.

Getting Paid

For literally decades, I wrote for myself. I've written stories since I was six or so and I've just turned 62. I've had a regular sports column in several newspapers and websites now for at least 24 years and I make a little money each week doing so; not enough to buy groceries but enough to go out...
