General Update

Hello! We're still under the cloud of COVID-19, so I thought I'd give you a general update. As you doubtless know by now, I live just around the southern edge of The Tundra, on the NorthWest shore of the eastern most of the Great Lakes. The Five Great Lakes. Lake Ontario. I provide…

NaNoWriMo 2019

I won the challenge set by NaNoWriMo 2019. Here is my certificate. You're probably wondering what I'm talking about, right? Right --> That way. Yep. For the second year in a row, I have managed, somehow, to meet the personal challenge of writing at least 50,000 words in the month of November. Last…

NaNoWriMo – Day 7

Day 7 has come and I'm done my stint for the day. Not as much as I would have liked. But this fictional stuff is hard. It's not like the stream of unconsciousness crap I usually churn out on this blog. That comes from a unlatched brain. I can usually churn out 1500…

NaNoWriMo – Day 1

Well, we're off! #NaNoWriMo2019 #Imwriting Here is today's progress report. Heavy going! I took the 200 odd words I had laying around from a story I tentatively titled "Hey! I'm dying here!" and worked it up to the end of Act I. I see all stories as Acts of a play. In fact, this particular…

A Couple of Choices – Free Sample

As you know, by now, I wrote a book. Which isn't quite the same thing as "I had okra masala for lunch". Nothing is! It is, however, quite an achievement of sorts, I'm told. In any case, it's there on Amazon to be admired, mocked, bought, read and otherwise digested. So far, the…

A Couple of Choices

I'm still here. Been busy as a bee. And I need your help. But before we get to that... we have to digress a bit. <Digression Alert: But why are bees always represented as being busy? Why not busy as an ant? Have you ever seen an ant lying around goofing off? No,…

Socks

Not the cat.... You know this, already. No cats allowed at SloWord. This one is dedicated to actual socks, the things you wear on your feet. Like this one. Contrary to what you may be thinking, I am perfectly sane. Socks are mysterious creatures. They are prone to a half-life without the means…

An Anthology of Personal Poetry

Since I hear no clamor from publishers wanting to publish anything written by me, I have decided to publish my "poetry" here. I suspect it will make them look quite silly. That is, if this blog is on their reading list. Most of these lines appeared as throwaways on assorted Facebook groups. When…
