For better or worse, J.R.R. Tolkien wrote A LOT of words. Even if none of the rest had value, it’s worth shifting through such tremendous output for these:
Not all those who wander are lost.
Every time I read it, I get that gut-punched reaction of: Bam! Right on!
It’s not wrong to wander, and search, and still enjoy. Doesn’t mean you don’t know who you are or where you want to go. It just means you’re not in a rush to get there.
Happy wandering, everyone.
Well, gentle readers, in the interests of unlocking yet another achievement, I’m pleased to announce that my first book, A is for Adverb: An Alphabet for Authors in Agony, will be released in September.
Cover sneak-peek right here:
Wisdom? Nah. I don’t got no stinkin’ wisdom.
But I do have some humorous and honest observations on cutting my teeth in the world of authoring.
Some of my favourite topics:
E is for Emotions
F is for Fuck and Other Swears
and, of course
Z is for Zombies and Other Monsters
Stay tuned for the official launch date.
Warning: Introspective alert ahead!
I don’t like the word truth.
Why? Because it sounds like there’s only one.
Sometimes we use the word true to refer to fact. Like humans needing oxygen to stay alive—that’s true. (And yes, fighting over what is a ‘fact’ is a debate for another day.)
But we also use the word ‘true’ to mean what is ‘true for me.’
Yes, that dress makes you look fat.
Achievement Unlocked! First publication.
I released my first short story, Unbelief, here on my website. Edit October 13, 2017: And now on medium.com. It’s about a girl who learns she can unbelieve things from existence. But what should she choose to get rid of?
Not a giant leap for mankind, but the first time I’ve officially put a story out for public consumption.
If you enjoyed, I would love to hear your thoughts.
