Quote from: mountainlady1956 on September 03, 2012, 08:25:51 PMGary,Started reading this thread and before I got to the bottom thought, this guy should write professionally (or maybe you do)! I'm an avid reader and loved your writing Why a book? although that would be grat. Why not some short stories? or perhaps an article for a magazine. Your writing style is so humorous, yet something that I could relate to (if familiar with chainsaws, jeeps or whatever-lol) Anyway, just my opinion. What is your book about? BTW, I've had that happen to me too! Lost my article draft which was soooo discouraging. Only happened once though! Always save everything (often) now on both my hard drive and a jump drive (love those). Thanks for an entertaining story. Cathy
Quote from: Weasel on September 03, 2012, 08:38:37 PMHey Gary,I too enjoy writing, but most of mine has been in the realm of politics. Where I learned that you can get some serious attention much faster than you had hoped! I tend to write on the factual, reasoning, and objective... which is good and all, but I still have not learned to combine it with humor and a humorous motif like you have. You are really good at that. The humorous motif is what makes the writing interesting and enjoyable - despite the content. That's an area in which I have a lot of room to grow.I mean how do you tell people they are crazy while making them smile at the same time?
