    Drx1972 Rejection I have learned to accept it. You have too, really. This one (at 00.55) has drawn a little blood from my heart. I quote-'Thank you for contacting us - I'm afraid that this is not the sort of thing we're looing for.' When they cannot even be arsed to spell check their own work what does it say? Yes, this leaves me bitter and annoyed. Am I right to feel this, or should I just suck it up. A few days ago I got an email from Joe Abercrombie (based on an online comment I sent him) who took the time to say-keep submitting. Great guy. This sort of rejection makes me think they didn't even read it. It's late. I have been out (few drinks) and accept gloominess may be overcoming me. Still...

    Stupidity is a matter of context. It can only be gauged by the society in which it is found. Sadly these days it appears that stupidity is the norm.....but thinking about this one realised it was ever thus, and is not a 21st century phenomena. JFK ...

    In which context I am reminded of The Inquisition, a bunch of bigots who imprisoned and tortured Gallileo Gallilie until he recanted his view that the solar system rotated around the Sun in favour of their view that it rotated around the Earth. You ...

    Sorry to hear of your bereavement. The poem is peaceful, dignified, restrained and utterly convincing. Funny how pain can wring such beauty out of us. And amazing the power of words at such a time. You and family are in my thoughts.

    Coincidentally, I came across the phenomenon known as the 'Dunning-Kruger effect' today. I think it's pertinent to this blog: 'The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias which can manifest in one of two ways: Unskilled individuals suffer from ...

    Strange Fruit
    Strange Fruit I just had a useful Sunday lunch. My friend is a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist. After we ate she allowed me to put some of my key characters through therapy, (a sort of role play) I really expanded the various back stories. Explained some of their motivations and impulses to me. It gave me a few ideas I had never thought about. I suppose we create characters, and they continue to grow, sometimes beyond our control. It was very helpful to get an outside view. We created genographs, created past events that explained current actions. Really put life into them. Do others ever end up with a character that is hard to understand, that do things we can’t explain, as they develop a life all of their own?

      GippsGirl My characters aren't well enough developed to answer that question, SF, but I am envious of the opportunity you had!

    Stephen, old boy. Thanks for your comments on memoir. I will need to watch that. It's difficult to know how much background to put. Maybe I am taking the whole thing too seriously anyway and need to lighten up. It's only a comedy after all. After ...

    Thanks, Jeffrey, my dear ape. You know, there was a medal back in the war (the English Civil War), the Forlorn Hope. I think you deserve this in that you have read so many of my pieces - far and above the call of duty, one might say.

    Applogies To SG and SM who can't comment on the blog for tech reasons. Thanks for your comments, guys. This one should have been back in the Mudflat Group but for its Easter theme. I'll drop it there soon. Thanks.....

    Prop, like Steve, I can't comment on your blog directly - I think it's a browser thing...? You did a good job with this. Tight; reads well, one of my favourites, I think :)
