Birthdays, writing and telling you what I think again! Beatles poster.

I have a busy week here. First two birthday at my house Son & V are now 25 years old. Which I find hard to understand after all I can't be that old yet. Its also my favorite Beatles George Harrison's birthday today. I still have the posters from the Beatles Apple store in London, I got them on opening day.  Tomorrow is another anniversary 30 years, yes I have heard the joke you get less for murder.
Well I have talked to some really nice people. I am looking forward to working with them on this short stories book. I did get good advice do not rush it. I have also gotten a review saying my book wasn't good. This person said he didn't know how to put it. That is alright.
If you read a book and do not like it to me the best to tell the person. You don't have to scream and shout and be hateful. I know we see that so much now a days. Flipping telly channels you have people yelling about sport, religion or news. I don't believe the louder you yell or tell a lie makes it the truth. So please be kind and say I didn't care for your book because it.... specifically the charters, location, story line. I also have read a books the you could tell were formula written. You can do a step by step almost like paint by numbers. YIKES! If its some part your very knowledgeable about be exact. Generality's and being vague can make one believe you didn't read the book. I worked hard on my book I checked all locations, visited them as well. I believe research is very important in any piece of work you put out. I tell a person how I feel with kind words. I always say how would I want to be told this. My writing comes from my gut not a step by step out line you buy. If you have read my two short stories on this blog let me know what you think of them. I know also not everyone is going to love every thing I write. Thats all right if we all loved the same things just imagine how boring this world would be. I also have read some really cool things which were pleasant surprises, Draven your story!
I have a short story to finish. I also was kindly given a book to read by another writer before its out. I have a good feeling about it. So next weekend I will start reading it. When I am told go for it tell everyone I will tell you all about it.
As always I want to say thank you for your support and many kind words to me. I am always so grateful to others who can be bothered to take their time for me. Life is so very short I try to live each to its fullest. Have a great week. Let me know what your thinking. Any questions? Say HI to me and Smile be happy or as Monty Python says   .
