This website is about writing, about stringing unrelated words together in new and interesting ways so that they tell a story. The final product may be a song, a poem, a short story, an anecdote; it can be reflective prose, a diatribe, a prayer or a novel. It is definitely not a site which purports to teach writing – (See the On Writing page) – for I have never been a clinical writer. Even so, I have observed some things about my writing process and that of a few other people, so we will make this a place to share some of those experiences.
And let me be right up front about something else: along with many songs, a few poems and a bunch of short stories, I have written two books, so far, and have had the good fortune of having both of them shortlisted for the Stephen Leacock Medal For Humour. The second, The Promised Land – a novel of Cape Breton, won the 2014 Leacock Medal For Humour. I will tell you about them and if you are interested, I will be more than happy to lead you to you where you can buy them.
Prowl the site, follow the links hither and yon, and be sure to leave a message.
