Sammy Watch #4

Unless I’m reading everything wrong, Sammy Sosa has made the Texas Rangers Baseball club. As of March 29, he was hitting .404 with 5 HR, the most of any Ranger this spring. I guess that Sammy will have a chance to get his 600 Home Run. I wonder which race will be more joyful. Barry […]

50 Word Novels Again

50 Word Novels Again I usually go beyond 50 words these days. But occasionally I still try and write 50 word novels.  So, I thought I’d print a few here and see what happens. The idea is to write a story using no more than 50 words. It’s not as easy as it seems. What […]

While I Am Waiting

I’m still waiting to hear from the literary agent and the publisher that I sent my latest book to. I suspect I will here from the agent in the next week or so. The publisher? I haven’t the faintest idea. But what do I do until then? I thought I’d present a few Chicago urban […]

A Little Update

A few weeks ago, I sent a query to a literary agent about the book that I wrote last year, In The Company Of Legends.  About a day or two later I received an e-mail reply that they were interested in my proposal and to send them a couple of chapters for them to further […]

Sosa Watch

As I had written in an earlier blog, Sammy Sosa returned to baseball after a year absence from the game. So far this spring training he has been doing good, getting a couple of home runs and last I heard batting .500. It’s too early to judge, but it seems he has a good chance […]

Why I’ll never Become a Famous Blogger

Yes, I’d love to be considered a famous blogger. There’s no money in it. Just the idea that hundreds, If not thousands would read your every word. That people will e-mail you or add comments by the score to any thing that you would write. That’s not going to happen to me, I’m sure of […]
