Oh I know. If you actually read my blog, you’ll notice that interspersed between witty satires, there are chapters of actual writing: “creative writing” if you will.
As an aspiring writer of books for your future entertainment, I am taking a bold risk (risky to writers who are usually quite shy), and I am publishing on this blog bits of the pieces I’m working on. “Now why would I want to read that crap?” you might ask. You might not, it’s a free country (well it is where I am, I don’t know where you are).
I’m looking for constructive feedback on my writing bits so that I can be a better writer. I can take the criticism. I have nerves of steel because I taught kindergarten in South Korea and those kids are merciless (fair warning to North Korea). I’m not worried about people “stealing” my ideas, because you don’t know what I have in mind past Chapter One. So there. Besides, my ideas are published for the world to see, so I would have a much better case in court if it came to that.
You’ll find my writing bits under the tag “some light reading” if you’re interested in having a deeper look. Please – no troll comments. Pretend you’re at a book reading soiree and I’ve just read something to a room of pseudo-intellectuals, you have a glass of cheap wine in your hand, and you’re popping over to offer me some of your well-thought out comments on my writing. Cheers.
