Halfway through my Halloween story. Wrote 1,500 words on it yeserday and I will get back to it as soon as I take some Tylenol for this headache. I was thinking, after reading Charles' contest poll, what genre/story type does my style fit into? I have always considered it to be Short Story, but it's ...

There could be a huge market for a hockey book...providing there's still an NHL. (sorry, I'm feeling sarcastic because I don't have any hockey to watch)

I've been getting stories ready for submission....5 sent out so far. I think of this as the shotgun method of publishing. I want to get at least 3 more out there, and then I'll feel better about the year's progress.

I have to sit back and write something fresh for a while now. :)

All hail the royal pomegranate

Its leafy crown

I always knew you were destined for great things, since you chose fortune, maybe I will publish something and achieve fame. Then I'll be able to still hang with you and not feel like a freeloading stepson.

(Hmmmm...not that that's such a bad idea.....)

The not-so-ineffectual-after-all Pa also contributed something else the 1951 reference is the first known written instance of the word "nebbish" with its modern English sense.

Obviously this is all YOUR fault as you didn't tell us the answer to "Guess what I'm going to be doing tomorrow?" When you leave it up to people to guess (especially writers) chaos ensures.... So, what DID you do today/tomorrow?? I thought it was implied that I was going to get to work on the busin...

I make my own memories of my childhood. Makes me forget the reality that other kids around me had cool stuff toplay with like Big Wheels and Speed Strip Racers.

So how did this thread get so out of control? All of a sudden we're talking about some "Phillis" writing love songs to Alfred Hitchcock.

I didn't get any new markets listed like I wanted to do today. I will have to buckle down tomorrow and get it done.

But had he not chiseled away the marble from a solid block, we would not have the sculpture of David? :D (BTW...his name isn't Michael Angelo...it's Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni) I'm so embarrassed :oops: .
