Boom Goes the Dynamite!

I just received my review from the 23rd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards. ===================================================================== MY LIFE AS A SPERM: ONE MAN’S QUEST TO SAVE THE WORLD by William Darrah Whitaker is a fun book for those who enjoy sarcastic, off-kilter humor with a high-stakes plot. Who doesn’t want to see if a somewhat unlikable,… Continue reading Boom Goes the Dynamite!

I Have a Female Admirer – The Final Chapter

This adventure started with an unexpected email from a female admirer. I received another the following day from a different admirer (see my previous postings at http://wp.me/p28P7h-5e and http://wp.me/p28P7h-5s or none of this will make sense) I replied to both and, surprisingly, I received a quick reply from the second girl which actually addressed something that… Continue reading I Have a Female Admirer – The Final Chapter

I Have a Female Admirer – Part 2

My reply to Jane, my first female admirer (see http://wp.me/p28P7h-5e), went unanswered, but I did get an email from another admirer, probably a good friend whom Jane must have felt would make a better connection with me. Here’s her email: HELLO HANSOME, good morning. my name Is jenneth watson am a native of united state of… Continue reading I Have a Female Admirer – Part 2

Keeping the Spark Alive

The first story I remember ever writing was about killer trees. I think I might have been eight or nine, I don’t know exactly, but I do remember thinking what a great story it was and how I thought it would be so cool to be a writer. True that regarding the latter, maybe not… Continue reading Keeping the Spark Alive

When Will It End?

Yesterday, I found myself sitting at my desk thinking about all the things I had to do for the week (and for the month and year for that matter). I rubbed my face and yelled to no one in particular, “When will it end?” I waited for an answer, and, lo and behold, one came in the form… Continue reading When Will It End?

It’s All About the Timing (Social Media)

Since I started posting on various social media, I’ve become more and more curious as to when is the best time to post. I decided to do some research, hitting as many sources on the Internet as I could because, of course, this would give me a broader understanding of what is “best”. I concentrated on… Continue reading It’s All About the Timing (Social Media)

It Just Makes Me Want to…

1) Silence is the virtue of fools – Francis Bacon 2) Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt – Mark Twain I tend toward #2, but as a writer, I can’t survive without cracking the egg a little.

I Got Your Comments Right Here

I have my opinion. You have yours. In most cases this works, except in bars near closing time or with my ex-wife because we both know whose opinion really counted (one hint, it wasn’t mine). It especially works on the internet. Free expression. Where else can you find it if not there and maybe also dog groomers?… Continue reading I Got Your Comments Right Here
