A list or two

“Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for,” said Mr. Bradbury.

Something I love: I love sunny days with nothing to do – walking along water – my memories of Willow The Best Dog There Was – Ray Bradbury books, Terry Pratchett books, Lucy Maud Montgomery books, the Bosch books and TV show, Carol Jean Townsend, exploration stories (space, time, dimensions)(Hey! That’s why Jeep Thompson will be such fun). I love making stuff up out of thin air – I love telling people about obscure fun stuff I’ve found (my first fanzine article was about The Imp by Stan Lee) –

Something I love: A twist of a familiar saying. An image painted with words. An unexpected turn of phrase that makes me laugh. A story twist I didn’t see coming but that fits what came before and the tumblers fall into place.

Something I love: Old stuff, unearthed and in the sunshine again. Imagining when it was new.
