What's it all about?
This is a few jottings I've made over the years - some of it is actually
rather ancient and almost all of it is pretty much pointless.
I had lots of fun, though, and that's the important thing (IMNSHO ;-)
Stories . . .
I've always had a strong urge to write - unfortunately, it's not really something that people (including parents) consider a viable activity in terms of a child's `future' . . .
Nevertheless, I've written quite a few stories over the years, some of them quite readable. I've even got something like 35,000 words of a novel sitting on my hard drive at the moment, waiting for me to find time and creative energy to finish it.
This is the most polished piece of work that I've written so far - it's
received some quite good responses from my family (no mean critics, them),
and it was, at the time I finished it, the piece I was happiest about
. . .
Inevitably, looking at it several years later, it's rather sad, but even so . . .
I've recently shown this story to some more people, who've given it some very good reviews. I've also had an excellent suggestion for a name: "A Gift of Laughter". Thanks to Xellos of #crfh and related places for that.
And that's it for the moment. I'll put more stuff up as I get around to it . . .
