I know… I know…

When you’re writing a book it’s hard to post something here.

But I figure, unless I’m published, this blog means nothing.

Back to writing.

MEANWHILE – here’s a nice song while you wait for my book to be done:

“Read, read, read. Read everything – trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.”
~~ William Faulkner

Two Quotes from Lyman Abbott:

“Depressed and discouraged as we are apt to be by the flood of filth and falsehood, of corruption and crime, which the daily paper offers us for our daily food, it is well sometimes to stop, take a quieter and less partial view, and realize the right we have as Americans for pride in our past and for hope in our future”



“Who through faith subdued kingdoms,

wrought righteousness, quenched the 

violence of fire, waxed valiant in fight,

turned to flight the armies of the aliens”

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”

~ Madeleine L’Engle


(this author’s note: In this day and age – the above quote reflects orange light, off the ‘shiny-base’ of illiterate masses – being pulled by the nose of a fat-fuck in Washington.)
