T. G. I. F. and it's the weekend before Christmas! Yahoo! Unless you're a Scroogey individual. What's on your mind today? I thought I would turn the table on you! Well let me see surely there is something going on in me head. I be tired, Friday's my hardest work day and this here old man's back has been bothering him lately. I hurt my sciatic nerve back in 07 and it ain't been the same since. If I take a double dose of Aleve I get relief but damn the more I take the more I need! Ya'll out there reckon that's the point! Yep! I think so!
I'mma gonna post someting special on Sunday the 18th. Actually tomorrow. It's the story the started all this madness I been doing, learning to type and all. This story "The Flame" is based on an actual place I viewed in 98. This apartment above a smalltown newspaper looks like someone walked out about 40 years before my visit and the apartment has been locked up. I was touched by the kitchen in ways I only understand many years later. So it's important to remember this apartment was real and everything that I write about is from the impression of 10 minutes in the apartmnt and my imagination. What makes this story so special to me is! I don't know anything about writing, don't know how to type nor how to use a computer. In April of 04 I can't sleep and the basic story line plays out in my head. I have to write it! I hand write the first chapter, over and over, trying to teach myself how to write! I try typing the story on a used computer in 08 I get frustrated and give up. I continue writing by hand it's become an obsession! I try again in 09 and type the first couple chapters. The computer crashes I lose everything, I'm heartbroken! I say !@#$ it! My buddy Timster encourages me in the spring of 10, going out of his way to start this blog for me. (What a pal!) The flame becomes brighter! So I buy a new computer and I peck away slowly with renewed passion! No it hasn't been easy! I've found it to be the most challenging yet rewarding thing I've done in my 60 years of life!
I need to practice so I start typing whatever pops into my head after taking my night time meds and the madness that follows has been Glen View as I search to find my way!
I WISH TO GIVE THIS TO YOU MY FRIENDS OF THE WORLD! I BELIEVE WE'RE ALL CONNECTED AND I GIVE TO YOU THE STORY THAT'S MY HEART AND SOUL!!! I COMPLETE WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO READ ABOUT A YEAR AGO BUT COULDN'T CONCLUDE IT AT THAT TIME! I'M GOING TO FINISH THE STORY BETWEEN NOW AND CHRISTMAS AND POST IT DURING THE HOLIDAYS. MY GIFT TO YOU, HOPE YOU ENJOY MY SHORT STORY "THE FLAME"! MOST LIKELY I WON'T POST ANYTHING UNTIL THEN. To my friends who visit my humble site, I say thank you VERY MUCH!!! Glen
