Election is over – life still goes on – work and pay taxes, take a short vacation normally on credit and then work and pay taxes again. I have made posters and flyers for book stores and have several local art magazines interested in articles on VENT – submitted my new novel to reviewers and the Barnes and Noble Buyer. For the bandits out there putting the last touches on a writing book based on a course I taught years ago – WHEN WRITING FICTION I AM SORRY GRAMMER NAZI YOU ARE NOT ALWAY CORRECT – a not so conventional look at writing fiction. Snide and funny and will most likely get about 47 1 star reviews. Keep the faith folks – it is only life. Had a writer tell me he was depressed because he had not gotten rich from writing – funny – I have been writing for 47 years and neither work or writing has made me rich, but would have it no other way. Should or before writing in the last sentence be nor?
