    Squidge
    Squidge is mightily relieved to have gotten to the end of the umpteenth rewrite of Rurik-which-is-now-Reeka. Editing/rewriting something written about weight years ago is flippin' hard work - but it's done now.

    Marge
    Marge Hello all. I'm just about to sign up, I think, to the How To Write online course with Writers Workshop. If I feel I need feedback on the course is this something I come here for?

    Wow, I am so impressed by your friend Tony's single-minded determination to cover every aspect of Balderdash! Perhaps, eventually, the pair of you will find a couple of like-minded Others and make up a team to go on "Only Connect". That is, if the ...

    Ditto, jkd, very nice :-) No red sun where I am but noticing it was darkening at two-thirty in the afternoon, I looked West to the thickest, blackest, most threatening pile of storm-clouds I have ever seen in my life! There was no wind at ground ...

    Dear Dolly, I tend to write in the same way whatever I do. But I don't think you have to adhere to formulaic writing. I write prose in rather old fashioned traditional way and this seemed yo have gone down well. The teenage novel will have ...

    Dear Bazabaron, Was that known 200 years ago? I know this might seem a daft thing to say. The journalist went native and wore a Fez which seems to have been a Turkish imposition and gives the wearing of a fez as the cause of his opthalmia. In ...

    Dear Dolly, Radio 3 has been featuring Edward Lear. Tosh has to be organised. I recently wrote a play about nothing but an audience would expect an intellectual tour de force, wit and meticulous plotting.

    Dear Tony, It would not only be Boston. One of the journalists I looked into, wrote about Texas at the time of the Alamo. The Irish had emigrated there too. When he came back to England he gave talks on Mexico and I think they may have been aimed ...

    The phenomenon is mentioned, too, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in his Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner: All in a hot and copper sky The bloody sun at noon, Right up above the mast did stand, No bigger than the moon.

    Hi Mike (Tony here!), Yes, my book ought to go down well stateside. The difficulty is getting publicity for it. I've only a few handfuls of sales in USDs.

    Many thanks new-be-author, your comment has really cemented my return to society. Incidentally, my friend Tony has decided to try for his masters next year, and who knows, a doctorate? It's possible that he could appear on Mastermind and talk a load ...
