When I said the, "Hello Johnny" story was experimental, I didn't expect it to be so experimental that my mate Ads couldn't understand it!!
He read it, said it was a good read and that it kept him glued to the pages, but he couldn't understand why a doctor in the story was calling him Johnny when the hero/victim's name was Gary… which meant he completely missed the point.
Ah well, he said it was a good read… just a pity the point didn't get across.
Whatever, I changed it, sent it to Badger-Bonce Winterbottom to read and he understood it straight away.
Thank Tarby for that.
What else is happening in my little world?
I'm still on short time, achieving nothing at home besides writing short stories that nobody understands and getting successfully on my wife's wick.
So with that happy thought, I'll leave you to it.
Oh, I've joined a band. Just for fun, defo no serious musical aspirations here; I just want to play the drums again.
Let's see where that all ends, eh?
Hopefully not in tears…
Ok then another idea for a short story....
An ex squaddie who stayed in a european country because he loved it so much. Got married raised a family and worked his butt off. Wrote a couple of books and short stories. Wrote music for an off the wall group, joined a rock band for the hell of it and because he was a rebel at heart. And then.... he sold his books, the group took off, however he didn't have time to do both, so which did he choose? Either way he was rolling in money to the bank.
Call it "choices" or "choices on a sunny day" or something. :-)
I see it's blues and reds again then. Arsenal is in there somewhere also.
Mmmm, Tee, that story sounds familiar, except for the ending of course, lol.
The group won't take off, we're way too unprofessional for that. However, I'm kinda hoping on the book front... as you well know, lol.
