A few days ago, Danny Evans over at DadGoneMad posted this on the subject of a 'special' kind of 'selling'. As I mentioned in an earlier post of my own, if it wasn't for that same Mr. Evans I probably wouldn't have attempted any of this. Which leads me to what I am about to ask of you, dear readers.
Circumstances in my life have pushed me to find a creative outlet, something I can call my own, something where the output is almost solely at my own discretion. Since I suck at sports and can't sing or play an instrument worth a tinker's damn, it looks like that outlet is writing. I write a lot. Every day, to be exact. Lately, its all I have really wanted to do. With all that and the enormous pressure of ideas in my head (and I am not making any value judgements of them at this time) I have been writing some essays and short stories. nothing published yet, but that is the long range plan.
This is where you guys come in.
I have posted a short story on Google documents called Run No More, and I am going to throw it on the mercy of your court by asking anyone who is interested to give it a read. I know everyone is busy about now, but it is short, so it won't take away from your valuable free time. I offer this up for your interest and critique; I would love to get some feedback. A writer friend of mine told me to find my voice, and I reckon your input would help me do just that.
Beyond that, I offer the following funny video, apropos of nothing, because we could all use a good laugh:
Merry Christmas, everyone!
(A special tip o' the hat to my Big Bro for bringing the video to my attention. Ha!)
