Appreciate Those Who Can Handle Walking Around in the Dark

April 18, 2019

Hi Brianna

Thanks for all the follows *, as the reason I write is to share.
* (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

# By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

* or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

“total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

Who says men can’t multi-task!

Kind regards and happy writing

“early bird” (very) * craig
* my “best” time (by far)

Creatively Political & Politically Creative

During the past two years, I’ve fallen down a lot of holes. Some, I didn’t think I would ever be able to get out of, despite it being my own choice that I ended up there in the first place. Through a couple hundred YouTube videos, podcasts, tv shows, novels, movies, and one university course, I discovered that I had an absolute love for the horror genre. You could even call it more than just a love – an infatuation. An obsession. A passion that I’m both thankful for and afraid of. This love has opened doors to worlds that I never knew existed; holes to fall down that I never could have imagined were dug so deep. I’m the kind of horror fan that loves it all: fiction, true crime, conspiracies – if you classify those as a type of horror. I do, because I’ve learned that the blood…

Write on Writing

“Writers see (view) critics, as dogs like lamp-posts.”

as “inspired by/led from”

“Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp-post what it feels about dogs.”

[Time Magazine, October 31, 1977]”
― John Osborne

“It’s not the critic who counts. It’s not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled. Credit belongs to the man who really was in the arena, his face marred by dust, sweat, and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs to come short and short again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. It is the man who actually strives to do the deeds, who knows the great enthusiasm and knows the great devotion, who spends himself on a worthy cause, who at best, knows in the end the triumph of great achievement. And, who at worst, if he fails, at least…
