Wisdom Bites Back (pt. 2)

Red helium balloon. Birthday baloon flying for party.


An abundance of caution is roughly the equivalent of being spanked by a helium balloon.


Well, attention spans are short and my stories are too long and confusing, so why not distill the essential message of a short story into one sentence and simply avoid all that pesky filler and amorphous meaning? This is called being efficient.


In other news, I just finished writing a novel. I don’t know why I don’t tell people these things, but there, I finally did. I still need to polish it a bit, but I think it’s kind of wonderful. It’s the best thing I’ve ever written. Catastrophe Jones has read an earlier version, and that’s about it. She’s an awesome writer.

      • Absolutely. I’ve been reading other author’s manuscripts and offering whatever input I have for the last six or seven years. I’ve done it for several dozen manuscripts and would be honored to do so for the fabulously talented Trent Lewin. I promise honest, but respectful feedback.

    • I’m a-working on it. I think it’s about done but needs a slight polish. I figure two solid days of just concentrating on it. Then I guess I see if the world wants the story or not – I think it’s a tough slog, a very very tough slog, but I believe in the story and I believe in me. I really really hope you get to read it someday, Michelle. I think you’d like it.

    • If you really are up for it… I’m done this novel in the next two weeks. I’m just finished with it and happy for people to read it. I don’t know if it’s any good. I think it is, but I’m a little biased. I’ll take you up on your offer, my friend.
