the first draft is just me telling myself the story
Except the writing isn’t on the wall, or anywhere else for that matter. Now the poetry anthology Seascapes and Serenity Lost is finished and published on Amazon, I feel the need for a new project, a new book, perhaps a collection of short stories. Maybe I have a title Dreams of Desire, but no idea what the content is going to be. Or how about a Bond spoof ~ maybe not.

Different music for me.

poetry is nearer to reality than is the unadorned truth
Both the kindle and print versions of my poetry anthology Seascapes and Serenity Lost are now available on Amazon. Trust me, the 8 x 10 paperback edition will look fabulous on your coffee table.
I must pay tribute to Jan Olandese who did all the hard work of editing and formatting both editions.
The one review I think I’ve received thus far is pretty damn positive.
Some of the stuff I’ve written is more than brutally truthful.

you can write about everything in life, if you have the courage
And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy of creativity is self-doubt. ~ Sylvia Plath.
The Beatles, probably the best band in the history of the world.
Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works. ~ Virginia Woolf.
Please listen with enthusiasm.
