I went to a small music festival held locally, or near by anyway. Called the Pigeon Lake Music festival. The image is of Chilliwack. I quite enjoyed their portion of the event.

I am the shyest writer around. I love to write. I love to have people read what I write as long as I have no idea who they are and they are far away from me.

Just a short little poem. Time Lost days, melded into decades. Concentration, focus slid away. Memories erode and it all fades, Locked in infinite pain, time’s prey.
My Fiverr profile. When I chose to try out Fiverr it was in fact because I have used it before for visual design. This is the cover for a novel I am working on that a Fiverr designer came up with for me: This is before I went to my pen name in fiction, of…… Continue reading My Fiverr experience
Word to the wise when writing for content sites, they run through copyscape. Which they should, of course. This is clearly important. So, yes, do that.

Sometimes I do in fact read to just ignore my problems for a while. I certainly read for escapism. To delve into another world entirely for just a time. Love this comic, by the way.
For my computer. It is a refurbished computer. Obviously, someone did a poor job on it. I may have to bring it in to the local shop and get it done right. The Thing, as I now call it, freezes completely out of the blue. You can’t Clt-Alt-Delete. Oh, no, that would be simple. You…… Continue reading I have a little hate right now
