I'm trying to figure out how to do this writing thing. It seems to be going fairly well but please bear with me. I don't have an editor or even a proofreader so I have to go over these things a 100 times.
Even with all that checking a typo slips through. If you find one, please email the offending line to me. With any critical comments you might like to contribute, please.
You'll need a word wrap capable text editor. I don't break lines so you'll get each paragraph as one line. I use TextPad and recommend it highly.
I'm writing for my pleasure, dear reader, as well as, hopefully, yours. Reader feedback has been very good. Occasionally, I've had to normalize my ego by reading a little Oscar Wilde or Amy Tan. Your emails are the sugar on my morning bran flakes.
You may also find some stories @ http://www.storiesonline.net/ (Use the search page. Author name: california) and also ftp to /pub/Authors/califdreamer or http://www.asstr.org/~califdreamer/
Where I list my story telling objectives. Where simple words attempt to create complex images.
Where fictional characters attempt to illuminate realities and fantasies.
Where the fascinating depth and complexity of the human condition and experience are explored.
The high hopes of a congenial scribbler.
In other words, I take this effort seriously, but not to worry, I never take myself seriously.
Thank you, dear reader.
